From: Dalton, GA

1.) WCW United States Champion Vader defeated JR Willett
2.) Johnny B. Badd defeated unknown
3.) Alex Wright defeated Pat Rose
4.) Lord Steven Regal & Jean Paul Levesque defeated Brad & Scott Armstrong

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Diamond Dallas Page issues another challenge for anyone to try and win a date with Diamond Doll. Van Hammer makes his way out and he’s fired up to get a shot at the arm wrestling challenge. He also must really want a date with Diamond Doll. Page is suddenly acting like he pulled something in his right arm and leaves the ring. Page doesn’t take part in the challenge and goes backstage.

2.) Regal and Scott kickoff the tag team main event. Regal backs Scott into the corner before backing away disgusted. Scott counters wrist control, but Regal rolls through and reaches the ropes. Scott lays on the mat like a pretzel and takes Regal over with an arm drag. Regal tosses Scott down and tags in Levesque. Scott keeps control with a wrist lock and counters Levesque on the mat before tagging in Brad. Brad has a hammerlock on Levesque for a few moments. Brad switches to a wrist lock, but Levesque breaks free and they have a standoff. Levesque keeps wrist control on Brad for a few moments. Brad tries for a rollup, but Levesque counters with a rollup and they have a standoff. Regal tags into the match and puts a headlock on Brad. Regal blocks a dropkick, but Brad twists Regal to the mat. Brad counters a rollup with a pin attempt for a two count.

Levesque and Scott distract the referee leading to Levesque decking Brad on the apron and dropping his arm over the top rope. Regal works over the left arm and tags in Levesque. Levesque drives Brad down with an arm breaker. Regal returns and stomps on Brad’s arm. Levesque leaps off the top to axe handle Brad for a near fall. Brad forearms Levesque a few times and tries for a sunset flip, bur Regal tags in and works over Brad’s arm. Scott tags into the match, but the referee didn’t see the tag. Levesque continues to keep arm control on Brad. Scott tags in again, but the referee didn’t see it because Regal distracted the referee. Regal legally enters and kicks Brad in the ribs. Brad fights back with right hands and sends Regal into the corner, but Regal drops Brad with an uppercut. Levesque tags in and uppercuts Brad a few times. Brad back supelxs Levesque as Regal tagged in.

Brad crawls away and tags in Scott. Scott cleans house with right hands to both Levesque and Regal. All four men are in the ring brawling. Regal and Levesque are sent into each other. Scott is on Regal’s back for a sleeper hold, but Levesque decks Scott frm behind. Levesque holds Regal to block a sunset flip and Regal covers Scott with Levesque pressing onto Regal for the cheap win. (**. The match was okay for what it was, but WCW’s style of a lot of rest holds makes it difficult for the matches to standout. Levesque is just mimicking Regal’s gimmick instead of adding his own style to it. The Armstrong’s did a fine job as underdogs, as per usual.)

Final Thoughts:
An average episode for Pro this week. The arm wrestling thing with Page isn’t very interesting and I wonder if they will actually have a blowoff between Page and Hammer or if that was a just a one-off. The feature match was decent and held my interest, which is a positive for WCW Pro.

Thanks for reading.
