End of Show
My Opinion: Steiner/Page came across as if they legit hated each other. Which is a good thing. Disco/Booker was a good opener. Jericho/Saturn, Chavo/Kidman could have both been better, but where OK. Hall/Piper was terrible. Bigelow/Goldberg wasn’t any better. Bigelow was made out to be weak, if your going to push him as a threat to Goldberg, he needs to do other moves than a standing head butt. David Flair joining the Wolfpack makes the whole situation from Souled Out as a set up. I’d much rather have had David with his father for a little while longer.
Overall Grade: B
