From: Atlanta, GA

2.) WCW United States Champion Steve Austin defeated Scott Studd
3.) Arn Anderson defeated Kenny Kendall
4.) Larry Zbyszko vs WCW Television Champion Lord Steven Regal ends without a decision as the show came to an end.
1.) Mean Gene is on the beach to interview Hulk Hogan regarding whether or not Hogan is going to meet Ric Flair in WCW. Hogan asks Gene is he feels what he feels. Hulk knows people are asking if he is man enough to wrestle Flair. Hogan says he would rub Flair’s face into the dirt if the champion was here right now. Hulk tells the fans to let him know if they want him to wrestle Ric Flair. Hogan asks what are you going to do if Hulk Hogan runs wild on you.
2.) Col. Robert Parker is interviewed. Parker has an introduction for Gene. Parker says the person is important and has a reason for being here. Parker brings over a personal bodyguard named Meng. Meng was previously known as Haku in the WWF. Parker says that the next time someone decides they want a piece of him they will have to deal with Meng. Gene tries to talk to Meng, but Meng doesn’t answer him.
3.) Arn Anderson is interviewed following his victory. Anderson talks about the possible reunion of the Four Horsemen. Col. Robert Parker and Meng come over to cut Anderson off. Parker says that he already has the Stud Stable and offers Anderson to be part of the group. Parker thinks Anderson is wasting his time since Flair is busy with the WCW World Championship. Anderson warns Parker to not make comments about his friend Flair. Meng steps in front of Anderson but Anderson says that he isn’t for sale and will not join the group because Parker cant afford him even if he were to be for sale.
4.) Zbyszko trips Regal early into the match and puts a Boston Crab on Regal for a brief time until the champ reaches the bottom rope. Regal rolls around on the canvas but Zbyszko puts an abdominal stretch on and quickly switches to a rollup for a near fall. Zbyszko keeps Regal on the canvas with a headlock but isn’t able to get a pin fall. Regal scoop slams Larry, but Zbyszko holds on for another rollup for a two count. Zbyszko has Regal elevated over the top rope and drops the champ face first onto the canvas. Zbyszko arm drags Regal several times but is met with a knee to the gut. Regal misses a somersault splash but his legs hit the back of Larry. Regal sends Zbyszko to the floor following an uppercut. Regal has a front face lock on Zbyszko and drops Larry with an uppercut. Zbyszko rolls Regal up a couple of times but can’t get a three count.
Larry hits a vertical suplex but only gets a two count. Zbyszko is on the floor putting a sleeper hold on Sir William! Regal comes over and attacks Zbyszko from behind to get the advantage. Regal drops Zbyszko with an uppercut and keeps control on the canvas. Regal works over Zbyszko with stomps and berates Larry. Regal focuses his offense on the ribs of Zbyszko in the corner. Regal has a full nelson on Zbyszko but isn’t able to get a submission. Regal attempts a butterfly suplex but Zbyszko counters and hits one of his own. Zbyszko decks Regal and begins to choke the champion. Regal works over Zbyszko in the corner with several strikes and distracts the referee so Sir William can choke Zbyszko. Zbyszko fights back with a couple of kicks to drop Regal and hits a swinging neck breaker for a near fall. Zbyszko has a standing surfboard on Regal but the champ reaches the ropes. Zbyszko trips Regal and has a standing reverse figure four in the middle of the ring. Regal pulls Zbyszko down for a two count and begins to hammer away on Larry. Regal delivers a double knee strike and gets a two count again. Regal kicks Zbyszko and drops an elbow for a two count. The show comes to an end without a conclusion and we’ll get the result next week…. Are you kidding me? Based on what we saw, it was going okay.
Well, the show goes off the air without a decision in the main event. That leaves a sour taste in my mouth, honestly. Obviously, I know the result after looking it up and it makes me even more disappointed that they didn’t show the full match for a title change. I didn’t like that one bit and that’s the only thing I can think about on this show.
