Match 1: Hugh Morrus v. Hak
This is a Hardcore match and it has been chaos. This was about 8 minutes and Hak won. Solid match.
Here comes Konnan and he is doing his thing.
Match 2: Konnan v. Scotty Riggs
Okay match. This was about 7 minutes. It was back and forth and Konnan won.
Match 3: El Vampiro v. Al Greene
Nothing great. Vampiro wins.
Rick Rude just passed away…..that sucks.
Match 3: Bobby Duncum Jr. v. Booker T (c) for WCW TV Title
Duncum has controlled most of the match. He runs him over and pounds on him in the corner. He slams him and after a two count sends him for the ride. Booker heel kicks him and then kicks him in the head before clotheslining him over the top rope. Duncum lures him over and pulls him crotch first into the post and he ties him up. The ref unties him but Bobby had been putting the boots to him.
Duncum has him in a reverse chinlock. Booker is up but he is worked over for a minute until he counters with a suplex. Booker is up and kicks him and now nails him with a spinebuster. Booker is up top and connects with the missile dropkick and gets the win.
**1/2 Okay. Hot crowd.
Match 4: Fit Finlay v. Buff Bagwell
Buff tosses him and then does it again. But Fit counters with an inverted atomic drop. Fit drags him over the apron and drills the neck with his elbow. Back in the ring he snaps him over and gets two after the elbow drop. He has him in a nerve hold. Buff gets up but is taken down again and Fit owns him for another minute or so and Buff counters with a suprise Blockbuster and gets the win.
** Fit got in some offense.
Match 5: Rick Steiner v. Disco Inferno
Disco gets in some offense but it is pretty much a squash. Rick makes him tap with the Recliner.
Match 6: Cat v. Goldberg
Poor Cat. Cat demands respect. Cat does his count thing and sucker kicks Goldberg. He hammers him but Goldberg blocks the blows and pummels him. A big right drops him. Sonny runs in and Goldberg picks him up and tosses him into Cat and spears both! Jackhammer finishes it.
** Fun squash.
Match 7: Kidman and Benoit and Malenko v. Saturn and Rey and Raven
Kidman and Rey start off but after some back and forth he tags in Saturn. Saturn tosses him around and to the floor. Rey protects him but relents. Kidman is rolled back in but he rolls up Saturn getting two. Benoit is tagged in and he stomps on Saturn. Benoit trips him and Malenko slide kicks him in the head. Now Malenko dropkicks him and Kidman is hesitant to tag but does so. Kidman whips him into the ropes but lowers his head. Saturn goes for a powerbomb but is faceplanted. Kidmangoes up top and Raven decks. Here comes Saturn and he tosses him across the ring! There is some back and forth and now Rey is in but he is doubleteamed by the Horsemen and pounded mercilessly.
Saturn is wearing a pink pom pom. Kidman shoves Dean as Benoit works over Rey’s knee. Benoit and Malenko keep after Rey. Dean suplexes him and gets two. It has been back and forth. Now all are brawling and Rey is helping Kidman against the Horsemen! Rey uses Kidman to leap and scissor him over. Rey goes up top and Arn knocks him off and hits the spinebuster. Kidman is pissed and Dean decks him on top of Rey and Charles fast counts!
*** Fun match.
**1/2 Not much here. Just some matches with a little angle advancement.
