WCW Saturday Night 2/24/1996

Written by: Bob Colling

World Championship Wrestling presents Saturday Night
Date:
2/24/1996
From: Atlanta, GA

Matches:
1.) WCW Television Champion Johnny B. Badd defeated Chris Benoit to retain the title
2.) One Man Gang defeated Pez Whatley
3.) WCW United States Champion Konnan defeated Scott Armstrong
4.) Sgt. Craig Pittman fought Diamond Dallas Page to a double count-out
5.) WCW World Tag Team Champions Sting & Lex Luger defeated Public Enemy to retain the titles
6.) Road Warriors defeated The Gambler & Butch Long
7.) Scott Norton fought Ice Train to a draw
8.) Loch Ness defeated Marcus Alexander Bagwell

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Benoit had the early advantage with clotheslines but Badd fought back with a head scissors, and a double axe handle from the top rope. Badd leaps off the top and hits a sunset flip on the referee, which causes a disqualification because Benoit put the referee in the way.

2.) WCW World Tag Team Champions Lex Luger and Sting cut a promo. Luger says every tag team will be getting a title shot. Sting doesn’t like that and doesn’t like that Luger continues to flex all the time. Sting doesn’t have any interest in messing with the Road Warriors, either.

3.) Lee Marshall interviewed Diamond Dallas Page about losing all his money. Page says he will come back to the top, but as he is saying that his car is being repossessed.

Final Thoughts:
One of the worst Saturday Night shows during the year, for sure.

Thanks for reading.
