End of show
My Opinions: Very boring show. Ric Flair seems to never be able to get a win over Hogan. Sid beating Jarrett, but not cleanly makes Sid out to be a weak champion. Sting looked to half ass his comeback match. Harris Brothers were on this PPV way too much. Matches where short, except for the main event, since their were a lot of backstage segments and video promos as if this were a Nitro or something. Very lackluster showing.
Overall Rating: D
