Matches:

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Liger backs Kidman into a corner and cleanly backs off. Liger gets wrist control on Kidman and gets a head scissors on the mat. Kidman breaks free, but Liger chops Kidman a few times followed by a back elbow for a two count. Liger comes off the ropes with a somersault splash for a near fall. Liger spikes Kidman with a brainbuster and chops against the ropes. Liger forearms Kidman into the corner, but Kidman comes off the ropes with a kick and a bulldog out of the corner. Kidman connects with a spinning elbow and a leaping clothesline for a near fall. Kidman side slams Liger and goes to the top rope hitting the shooting star press for a near fall! Liger nails Kidman with a somersault kick in the corner and crotches Kidman on the top rope. Liger hits a superplex off the top followed by a scoop slam. Liger goes to the top hitting a splash to win the match. (**. I was not expecting the SSP by Kidman, which was great. Kidman continually shines in these kinds of matches and I’m looking forward to see him evolve and become even better over time.)

2.) Wallstreet controls Armstrong with a wrist lock, but Armstrong counters and leg drops Wallstreet on the arm. Wallstreet rams Armstrong into the corner and misses a clothesline. Armstrong hits a crossbody, hip toss and dropkick to send Wallstreet to the floor. Wallstreet sends Armstrong to the floor where Armstrong favors his left leg. Wallstreet follows to strike Armstrong before returning to the ring. Wallstreet puts an abdominal stretch on Armstrong and denies using the ropes for leverage. Armstrong almost wins with a rollup, but Wallstreet decks Armstrong with a clothesline for a near fall. Wallstreet knee lifts Armstrong and delivers a leg drop for a near fall. Wallstreet slams Armstrong and goes to the top rope, but Armstrong delivers a boot to the face and hammers away on Wallstreet. Wallstreet finishes off Armstrong with the Stock Market Crash for the win. (*. Wallstreet tends to just bore me to no end. Armstrong did a fine job and his predictable offense was fine enough to hold interest.)

3.) Knobs and Sags go to the floor to attack Rock and Grunge before the bell. Knobs beats on Grunge in the corner with forearms. Sags enters to knock Grunge to the floor with Knobs. Rock is flipped into the ring and clotheslined over the top to the floor. Grunge sets a table up on the floor as the crowd cheers for the Nasty Boys. Grunge rubs Knobs face over the top rope. Rock enters the match and elbows Knobs to the mat. Knobs tries to fight back on Rock, but is stopped by a kick. Grunge chokes Knobs over the top rope and tags into the match. Knobs is met with a double clothesline. Grunge misses a clothesline and Knobs drives Grunge down to the mat face first. Sags tags into the match and works over Grunge. Sags hits a clothesline in the corner to drop Grunge. Grunge gets rubbed into Knobs armpit and Sags clotheslines Grunge for a two count as Rock makes the save. Grunge decks Sags and Rock drops Sags throat first over the top rope. Rock returns to the match and works over Sags ribs. Rock uppercuts Sags on the arm. Rock headbutts Sags on the arm a few times. Rock walks the ropes and arm drags Sags across the ring. Rock keeps control with an arm bar on the mat. Grunge and Rock continue to double team Sags for a few moments. Rock walks the ropes and is crotched by Sags. Sags hooks Rock for a suplex back into the ring. Sags clotheslines Rock and gets a two count. Grunge makes the save on a cover and Sags misses an elbow drop. Knobs tags into the match to battle Grunge. Knobs backs Grunge into a corner and delivers a flurry of right hands. Grunge runs into a boot in the corner and Knobs delivers an elbow drop for a two count as Rock makes the save. Rock chokes Knobs over the ropes and Grunge slams Knobs to the mat. Rock misses a senton splash. Sags pummels Grunge with strikes and knocks Rock down, as well. Sags is decked by a double clothesline. Knobs helps Rock with a clothesline to both men. All four men are brawling as Grunge saves Rock after a slam by Sags. The referee gets knocked down and the referee throws the match out. Grunge nearly puts Knobs through a table on the floor. Sags rams Rock into the table on the floor and they continue to brawl to end the show. (**1/4. Well, it’s a miracle. These two had a decent match without having to rely on hardcore stuff. Well done, fellas. It’s a decent little brawl and the table wasn’t introduced until the aftermath. I think this match actually added interest to the dog collar match at the PPV.)

Final Thoughts:
Another solid episode of WCW Pro with a couple of fine matches to make it a quick, enjoyable watch.

Thanks for reading.
