WCW Main Event 2/4/1996
World Championship Wrestling presents Main Event
From: Orlando, FL
1.) VK Wallstreet defeated Rick Garcia
2.) Konnan defeated WCW United States Champion One Man Gang to win the title
1.) An interesting fact for the WCW US Championship match is that the match happened during a WCW Nitro show, but it was not aired on Nitro. It was an non-televised match.
2.) Konnan leaps off the middle rope to arm drag Gang into the corner. Konnan hits a top rope twisting shoulder block, but Gang decks Konnan with a clothesline. Gang works over Konnan with strikes to the back. Gang clubs Konnan over the back and delivers a few shots to Konnan’s injured shoulder. Gang keeps a chin lock on Konnan followed by a strike to the chest. Gang chokes Konnan over the middle rope and delivers another elbow strike. Gang misses a splash in the corner. Konnan dropkicks Gang on the knee followed by a spin kick. Konnan ties Gang into the ropes and hits a running crossbody through the ropes to the floor. Gang tries to bring Konnan into the ring with a slam, but Konnan lands on top and pins Gang to win the title. (1/2*. That was not a good match because Gang is boring in a singles role. This was Konnan’s second match in WCW and wins a title. That’s pretty cool, too.) After the match, Gang attacks Konnan for a moment, but Konnan escapes further assault.
Sure there was a title change, but the show is a mostly boring episode. I hope Gang is limited to tag team stuff moving forward with Shark rather than a singles run.
Thanks for reading.
