3.) Sting and Rude start off the main event with Rude posing for the crowd and getting booed. Sting does the same and gets cheers causing Rude to flip out. Sting controls Rude with a sleeper hold. Rude fights out of a top wrist lock, but Sting controls Rude with a headlock on the mat. Rude leapfrogs Sting and taunts the fans only to be met with an atomic drop.

Sting is triple teamed in the corner as the referee was distracted across the ring. Anderson splashes Sting in the corner but misses a second attempt. Sting delivers several strikes as the show goes to commercial.
Scott tags in and Rude wants to do a test of strength. Rude has the advantage and taunts Scott, but Scott appears to get a second wind. Scott gets to his feet and takes Rude down to the mat. Scott taunts Rude and stomps on his hands. Scott backdrops Rude and puts a bearhug on the champ. Rick tags into the match and keeps a bearhug on Rude. Rick atomic drops Rude and Sting delivers a strike from the apron. Rude goes to his corner and Anderson tags into the match. Arn works over Rick with strikes in the corner, but Rick fights back and knocks Arn to the apron. Rick knee lifts Arn to avoid a shoulder ram from the apron. Arn rams Rick into the turnbuckle and returns to the match. Arn comes off the middle rope, but Rick delivers a clothesline in midair. Arn bails to the floor to regroup. Scott tags into the match and sends Eaton into the corner to deliver a running strike. Eaton boots Scott in the corner and delivers a clothesline. Rude tags into the match delivering a few strikes to the lower back of Scott. Rude keeps a bearhug on Scott in the middle of the ring. Arn tags into the match and knee strikes Scott followed by a scoop slam for a two count. Arn keeps Scott on the mat, but Scott gets a body scissors, but Arn counters with a Boston Crab. Eaton enters as the show goes to commercial.
Eaton has a bearhug on Scott to maintain control of the match. Scott fights out of the bearhug until Rude gets tagged in and delivers a forearm strike. Rude taunts the guys in the corner and puts a chin lock on Scott. Scott crawls towards the corner, but Eaton enters to stomp on Scott and double teams Scott with Rude while the referee is distracted. Arn tags in and beats on Scott with strikes. Scott blocks an axe handle attempt by Arn by getting his boot up. Scott crawls to the corner and tags in Sting. Sting cleans house with strikes. All six men are in the ring brawling. Sting hits the Stinger Splash on Arn followed by a bulldog off the ropes to win the match. (**3/4. That was a fun main event with the crowd eating up the action. The action was mostly basic and average, but with six of the best workers in WCW, it would have been a shock if it wasn’t entertaining on some level.)
Mostly basing this off the featured match means this was a fun overall show.
