DiBiase nails Dustin with the Million Dollar Championship! Dusty comes back with a chair but DiBiase bails from the ring. (***1/4. I really enjoyed that match. There was a lot of energy and the crowd just ate everything up. A very good television match and did a great job of introducing Dustin Rhodes if he were to part of the roster moving forward.)
A very good episode this week as the two major segments delivered big time. I think a lot of people would enjoy that match. The crowd was into it from the opening bell. I’m willing to say the best TV match for the WWF this year that I’ve seen. A thumbs up for this show.
