WCW Main Event 5/5/1996

World Championship Wrestling presents Main Event

1.) Shark defeated Kenny Kaos
2.) VK Wallstreet defeated Sgt. Craig Pittman in a submissions match

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Kaos is the the same guy that would form a team named High Voltage with Rage in about a year or so. Shark won the match following a modified side slam out of a clothesline.

2.) There’s an update on Diamond Dallas Page and his attempts to make money. DDP enters a limo and it drives off. They have no idea who picked DDP up off the side of the street.

3.) Two weeks ago on Main Event, VK Wallstreet issued an challenge to Sgt. Craig Pittman for a submissions match. Wallstreet promised that Pittman would submit.

4.) Pittman has a hammerlock on Wallstreet to start the match, but Wallstreet quickly gets to the ropes to break the hold. Wallstreet continues to reach the ropes on any submission attempts to break the holds. Pittman controls Wallstreet on the mat with a hammerlock. Wallstreet hammers away on Pittman to get the advantage and goes for a leg lock, but Pittman breaks free quickly. Pittman slams Wallstreet to the mat and works on the left arm, but doesn’t get a submission. Wallstreet eye rakes free from Pittman and rams Pittman into the corner. Pittman rams Wallstreet into the corner a few times. Pittman decks Wallstreet with a clothesline to send Wallstreet to the floor. Shark comes out and gives Wallstreeet something. Pittman headbutts Wallstreet on the aisle and begins to choke Wallstreet. The referee is distracted by Shark as Pittman rolls Wallstreet into the ring. Pittman locks in the Code Red, but Shark gets on the apron. Pittman punches Shark and delivers a few shoulder rams. Wallstreet has the brass knuckles and knocks out Pittman. Wallstreet puts a sleeper hold on Pittman and wins the match by knockout. (1/2*. I kinda wish that Pittman would have actually won here instead of the finish we got. It’s pretty random for Shark of all people to help out Wallstreet. I don’t think there’s a connection between them aside from both men competing on this show. Wallstreet really bores me.)

Final Thoughts:
I was intrigued by the submissions match stipulation on WCW Main Event of all shows. I’m not even sure when the last time WCW had used such a stipulation. In any event, this is a skippable show. I should have known that before I reviewed it.

Thanks for reading.
