Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) WCW United States Champion Eddie Guerrero is interviewed following his victory. Guerrero is getting annoyed with Lee Marshall saying he is taking shortcuts, though he just used one to win his match. Guerrero says his match with Dean Malenko is more than just a match because now it is getting personal. Guerrero wants to Malenko take action and prove he is the greatest. Guerrero is going into the match more like a challenger than he is a champion to prove himself to Malenko and everyone else. Guerrero will do what he has to do in order to fight out of the corner Malenko has put him in. I’m liking the heel turn for Guerrero.

2.) Harlem Heat and Sherri Martel are interviewed. Sherri says that Public Enemy thinks they can do whatever they want, but they will wrestle Harlem Heat. Booker tells Marshall to shut his mouth. Booker is tired of Public Enemy ducking them and they will square off at Uncensored. Stevie Ray just says “you heard him.”

3.) Kevin Sullivan, Jimmy Hart and Jacqueline are interviewed backstage. Jimmy says he feels very safe with Sullivan and Jacqueline. Sullivan says he never let Jacqueline go despite not being in a relationship. Sullivan says she has never left his heart and she never gave up. Marshall wants to show them a tape that he thinks they should see. I don’t know who it was but some kid was saying that it was all Sullivan’s fault and Kevin leaves rather upset. I guess it was Kevin’s son, Ben.

4.) Public Enemy come out during the main event to attack Harlem Heat as it is clear they aren’t ducking Booker and Stevie Ray at this point!

5.) Ric Flair is interviewed backstage to end the program. Flair says that the worse thing that could happen to Hulk Hogan has happened since Flair and Piper have united for Uncensored. Flair says it makes the wrestling business feel good. Flair is back in the game and says he is tight with Piper.

Final Thoughts:
This is just your standard hype show to get people to buy the pay per view the following night. In that regard, I thought it was okay.

Thanks for reading.
