Buck beats on Rhodes on the apron with a few more strikes to the chest. Buck kicks Rhodes off the apron to the floor.
Buck keeps an abdominal stretch on Rhodes and uses the ropes for leverage. Buck lets go before the referee can see the cheating take place. Buck is also pulling Rhodes hair and lets go to hit a short arm clothesline. Buck beats on Rhodes with a few boot scrapes. Buck locks in a nerve hold.

The referee has thrown the match out. After the match, Meng gets on the apron and enters the ring, but officials keep Meng apart from Rhodes and Anderson. (**. A fine brawl, but the finish is flat and doesn’t really make a lot of sense. Nick Patrick was really slow on the pin attempt, which Bischoff even mentioned on commentary. They work well together in a formula brawl and I enjoyed the Meng aftermath as Meng has been built up rather well in WCW.)
An average week of TV as they continue to really hype up the Bash and the showdown between Flair and Hogan.
