Vacant WCW United States Tag Team Championship – The Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes & Jimmy Garvin)(w/ Big Daddy Dink) vs. The Young Pistols (Tracy Smothers & Steve Armstrong)
In a brief explanation, the Steiners were stripped off the US tag straps after they became the World champions during said reign as well. Similar to Warrior and the IC title after WrestleMania 6. Hayes struts and stalls to start but gets rolled up by Steve for two and we get a stalemate. Dink goes for a clothesline on Steve on the floor, but misses and all the heels end up eating one each instead. However, Dink trips him up back in and allows Hayes to take over, at which point Brad Armstrong (Steve’s brother) appears to even the odds. The ref sends both Brad and Dink to the back, and the Freebirds go to work in the corner until the Pistols clean house. Steve leapfrogs over both Garvin and Tracy before both Pistols double shoulderblock Jimmy Jam for two. Off to Hayes, who struts some more. Hayes with a leapfrog and Jimmy pulls the top rope to dump Tracy, as then the Freebirds slam Tracy throat first onto the railing.
Back in, Hayes works a hold and gets a high knee. Hayes comes in and gets pounded in the corner, but then cheapshots Tracy and tags Garvin back in. However, Tracy superkicks Garvin and gets the “hot” tag, with the pro-Freebirds crowd not giving two craps about it, but Steve comes in and runs wild regardless. They both go up but both miss stereo dropkicks, however the Freebirds’ stalling allows Tracy to go up again with a double flying clothesline. Tracy dumps both Birds with a clothesline over the top rope, which isn’t a DQ here because that’s not the planned finish(!) and Steve follows it up with a high crossbody to the outside. Back in, the Pistols hit a flying elbow on Hayes. They hit one on Garvin as well, but the momentum ends up knocking the ref down as well, and we get a ref bump. Cue Fantasia, the MASKED MYSTERIOUS FREEBIRD MEMBER OF DOOM, who DDTs both Pistols off the middle rope. Hayes simply pins Tracy for the win and the titles at 10:19, and the crowd loves it. Fantasia was Brad Armstrong, who interfered twice in the same match.
- Rating: This wasn’t bad but I don’t think it needed ten minutes. They would’ve been able to get the point across with less time, as after a while it was mostly the usual Freebirds stalling and takeover leading up to an ice cold Pistols “hot” tag. The run-in at the end was cool and would make you want to tune in to find out more, I guess, but I just wouldn’t give the Freebirds another tag title run at this point, as their best days were clearly behind them. The match was alright. **1/2
Ricky Morton vs. Danny Spivey
Spivey goes to work on Ricky in the corner to start and even dumps him. Morton keeps coming back in and fighting back, but Spivey keeps dumping him to the floor until Spivey finally catches him with a great looking DDT to get control of things. Clothesline gets two. Razor’s edge connects but Ricky Morton, being Ricky Morton, keeps fighting back despite barely being able to stand. This guy was born to be a babyface. Next up, fallaway slam sets up the legdrop for two. Should’ve added a little bit more of “believing in yourself” to that legdrop, brother. Morton rolls him up for two but misses a dropkick, only for Spivey to miss an elbowdrop himself. The powerbomb doesn’t miss, however, and that’s all at 3:11.
- Rating: For what essentially was a three minutes squash (poor Ricky Morton), this was as good as it could get. Ricky rolled over and played dead for Spivey like a champ, and Spivey looked dominant in his role too. For the short time they got, it was good. Props to both. *1/2
Nikita Koloff vs. Tommy Rich
Looking at how awesome Nikita looks here, despite being past his prime, I just can’t understand why Vince never signed him for a house show run with Hogan. Rich actually gets a bodypress for two to start and we get a stalemate. Nikita pounds away in the corner but gets rolled up for two, and we get a stalemate again. Rich works a headlock and hits an elbow in the corner, but a second one hits the post instead. Nikita drops a few elbows for two. Rich rams his face into the buckle and pounds away in the corner, only to miss a flying bodypress and eat Nikita’s Russian Sickle at 4:27.
- Rating: Another squash match to elevate Nikita on his way to the US title match with Lex Luger – which never happened after Flair left to the WWF and Luger moved up to the World title scene – but with Tommy getting WAY too much offense for cannon fodder. 1/2*
Theodore Long introduces Johnny B. Badd
Yep, it’s one of the first appearances (the first on PPV) of Johnny B. Badd. They throw out a challenge to PN News, and Mero clarifies that he should’ve been born a little girl, but he’s a bad man. On the bright side, it could only go uphill from here!
Dustin Rhodes vs. Terrance Taylor(w/ Alexandra York & Mr. Hughes)
Alexandra York is of course the future Terri Runnels, Dustin’s future wife. The computer gives no prediction on how long it’ll take for Taylor to win, so you already know he’s jobbing tonight. Early wrestling sequence goes nowhere, and Taylor bails and goes to the computer already. Taylor hiptosses Dustin but gets kicked off, armdragged and put in an armbar. And Taylor bails some more. They get into a slugfest that is won by Dustin, and he goes back to the armdrag. And then, say it with me… Taylor goes back to the computer. Dustin then misses a bodypress and gets dumped, seconds after almost falling on his face on a really awkward-looking leapfrog. Taylor manages to turn things around with a necksnap on the top rope, and a vertical suplex brings Dustin back in the hard way. Kneedrop gets two. Taylor goes up for the Vertical Jump That Always Misses and SHOCKINGLY… it misses. Dusty comes back with a backdrop, clothesline and atomic drop for two, as Taylor gets his foot on the ropes. Dustin hits the bulldog for the visual pinfall, but York has the referee distracted. This allows Mr. Hughes to put on a loaded glove on the other side, but Dustin moves and he hits Taylor instead to give Dustin the win at 8:05.
- Rating: Looked good on paper with a dramatic finish to boot, but the match was sometimes sloppy as hell mostly because of how green Dustin was. Going over these veteran wrestlers so early into a run can sometimes be a very bad idea (just ask Rocky Maivia), but I’m sure being the son of the booker had something to do with that! Dustin was super green here, but he’d become much more mature and deserving of the ‘natural’ nickname. Don’t believe me? Just ask Terri Runnels… anyway I digress!! *1/4
Big Josh vs. Black Bart
Josh comes out with two actual giant bears walking on their own two feet. Josh takes over with a number of hiptosses and even steps on Bart’s belly. Bart cheapshots him but goes nowhere, as Josh slugs away and goes to work on the arm. Black Bart fights back with some good ol’ eye rakes and some choking in the corner. Josh goes after the arm some more and then finishes with Earthquake’s assdrop splash at 3:46.
- Rating: The bears were cool. DUD
FILLER ALERT! Paul E. Dangerously interviews Stan Hansen, who challenges Dustin Rhodes for a fight. Heyman then predicts the Horsemen will keep their belts later on and “quits”. Alright then, moving on.
Tim Parker vs. THE INCREDIBLE OZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ(w/ The Great Wizard)
These morons. We actually get the whole cinematic entrance of the POWERFUL NASHOZ for nearly four or five minutes. I’m sure it was wonderful, but don’t ask me because I fast forwarded the entire damn thing. Nash finishes the jobber with a spinning helicopter slam at 0:26.
- Rating: Are you fucking serious? Twenty six hot OZ pokers up your ass, Herd, one for each second longer than it needed to be. DUD
Taped Fist Match – Barry Windham vs. Flyin’ Brian Pillman
Won’t take too much to impress me after that clusterfuck of mOZive proportions. Both wrestlers’ fists are heavily taped here and there are no DQs. Windham shoves Pillman to start just to be an asshole and gets a shoulderblock. However, Pillman blocks a powerslam and gives him a shoulderblock of his own, followed by a hiptoss. Pillman with a flying shoulderblock and he pounds away with the taped fist, as Windham hides in the corner and cheapshots him. Windham goes to work on the ribs with the taped fist and he goes up, but Pillman dropkicks him off the top rope and dumps him. Pillman follows him out there for more shots to the face, busting him open, and Windham stops him by sending him face first into the post, making him bleed as well.
Windham then takes him to the ramp and drops him off the ramp onto the barricade, throat first. Back in, Pillman somehow ducks a clothesline and makes the comeback with a spinning wheel kick. Pillman runs wild with chops, only for Windham to cut off his comeback with a thumb to the eye and a stungun. Pillman tries to fight back with more chops, but he can barely stand up and Windham takes him down with a backdrop suplex. They proceed to headbutt each other for a double KO spot, as then Pillman blocks a Windham suplex and fights back with his own. Pillman goes up, but Windham shoves the ref away and low blows Pillman with the taped fist. And then the Superplex is academic at 6:08.
- Rating: For the six short minutes they got, they worked the stipulation pretty well and were able to deliver a violent and bloody fight. Pillman was great as always as the babyface fighting from underneath, while Windham kept killing his comebacks with every chance he got. I also liked how they worked the stip into the finish, with Windham punching Pillman with the taped fist right in the balls and winning because of it. Very good stuff, short and sweet. ***1/2
Meanwhile, DDP kills some time by hyping some of the upcoming matches before introducing Diamond Studd (Scott Hall).
Stretcher Match – Sid Vicious vs. El Gigante
What did I do to deserve this punishment? Speaking of punishment, Sid already had the WWF deal planned here, and this is his very last date in WCW. Sid takes over with a cheapshot but Gigante comes back with a horrible clothesline as Sid bails. Back in, Sid cheapshots him again and goes after the leg, which gives us the great image of Gigante trying to sell an injury. But then Sid simply walks into a shitty boot on a blind charge in the corner, and Gigante pins him with the GIGANTE CLAW OF EXCRUCIATING PAIN at 2:13. El Gigante gets beat up by Kevin Sullivan and One Man Gang after the fact.
- Rating: When Sid Vicious is the best worker involved in any match, it already smells enough trouble. But when Sid Vicious looks like Ricky Steamboat compared to his opponent, you get this. DUD
Thunderdome Cage Match – Ron Simmons vs. Butch Reed
This is the big match after Doom’s split at the last PPV, with the team’s former manager, Teddy Long, locked inside a shark cage above the ring. Simmons wins a slugfest to start and sends Reed into the cage, but ends up missing a charge and eating some cage himself. Simmons already has a busted lip, but he reverses a whip into the buckle and gets a backdrop suplex. He eats knee on a blind charge, though, and Reed goes up with a flying elbowdrop that gets two. Reed proceeds to ram Simmons’ face into the cage numerous times and stomps on Ron’s face. Reed follows it up with a flying double axehandle, and Ron’s already busted open. A Ron attempted comeback goes south faster than birds in the winter, as he misses an elbow, and Reed drops some elbows and chokes away. Simmons once again tries to fight back, but Reed grabs the tights and sends him into the cage. A sick piledriver from Reed gets two.
Reed picks up Ron on his shoulders and slams him face first into the cage. Simmons slugs away and tries yet another comeback, but Reed quickly cuts that off with a swinging neckbreaker and the flying shoulderblock gets two, with Ron getting his foot on the ropes. So what? It’s a cage match. A splash only finds Simmons’ knees, who runs wild for a bit before running into a high knee from Reed. They clothesline each other for a double KO spot, at which point Teddy Long throws a steel chain into the ring. Ron goes for it, but Reed stomps him down and grabs it. His swing misses, though, and Simmons finishes with a nasty spinebuster with extra mustard at 9:39.
- Rating: I knew exactly what to expect from this one coming into it, and it’s exactly what I got. Two tough badasses determined to hit each other as hard as they possibly can, with Teddy Long playing into the finish. That final spinebuster looked sick and made Simmons look great in the end, as his push to the top continued while Reed left the territory after putting him over. Really solid rugged tough guy match. ***1/4
WCW World Tag Team Championship – The Steiners (Rick & Scott)(c) vs. Sting & Lex Luger
They all shake each other’s hands in this all-babyface match. Luger and Rick feel each other out to start, with both giving the other clean breaks. Luger explodes with a shoulderblock and hits a powerslam for two. He eats buckle on a blind charge, though, and Rick german suplexes him out of the corner before meeting him with a Steinerline for two. Backdrop from Rick but then Luger turns him inside out with a massive clothesline and gorilla press slams him before bringing in Sting. The Stinger dumps Rick over the top with a clothesline (no DQ because reasons) before following with a huge dive to the floor. Back in, a Sting bulldog is no-sold by Rick, but Sting just picks him up regardless and gives him a dominator into the buckle. He moves out of the way of the Stinger Splash, though, and brings in Scott for a crazy sitout powerbomb. Scott follows it up with a tilt-a-whirl slam, but Sting stunguns him and tags out.
Luger hits a suplex and brings Sting back in, who walks into a Scott atomic drop followed by a belly to belly superplex for two. Scott puts Sting on the top rope but misses a charge, and Luger brings him in with a vertical suplex off the apron that gets two. Scott armdrags his way out of a Luger powerslam, but he can’t block a second attempt. Luger sets up for the Torture Rack, but Scott uses a russian legsweep to escape. Nice! Rick comes in with a blind tag and surprises Luger with a flying bulldog off the top rope for two. Sting, having missed the Steiners’ blind tag, comes in as well with a dropkick on Rick. Hot tag on each team brings in the fresh men, and Sting gets a backdrop suplex. Scott goes for a tombstone piledriver, but we get a tombstone reversal sequence and Sting is the one who ends up hitting it, but Rick breaks up the count as IT’S BREAKING LOOSE IN TULSA and we get a ref bump. Sting hits the Stinger Splash on Scott and goes for the Scorpion Deathlock, but meanwhile out comes Nikita Koloff after Luger. He takes a swing at him with a chain, but Luger moves out of the way and it hits Sting instead, giving Scott the pin to retain the titles at 11:09. Sting then chases Nikita backstage and they take their fight all the way to the parking lot.
- Rating: They started off at a slow pace, establishing the mutual respect on both sides, but once they switched gears this was all action and it was freakin’ awesome. The match went back and forth, with both teams exchanging some pretty good sequences, and I liked how the friendship went out the window temporarily when Sting missed the Steiners’ blind tag, adding some extra drama to an already hot match. The finish with Nikita was really smart, as he came in after Luger (who he was feuding with) but ended up hitting his partner Sting instead, and planted the seeds for a feud between them as well. This was great stuff. ****
WCW World Television Championship – Arn Anderson(c) vs. ‘Beautiful’ Bobby Eaton
Bobby is now finally a babyface going after his first singles title in WCW, and he’s pretty damn over. Nice wrestling reversal sequence gets things going before Eaton catches Arn with a right hand. That pisses off Arn, though, and he pounds away in the corner. He ends up missing a charge and Eaton fights back with an explosive clothesline out of the corner for two. Eaton grabs an armbar, but Arn makes it to the ropes and cheapshots Eaton on the clean break to turn things around. Eaton fights back and goes up, but Arn slams him off into the ramp on the outside. He goes to follow with a piledriver right there, but Eaton backdrops out of it and then backdrops Arn all the way back to the ring. Flying double axehandle gets two, and back to the armbar goes Bobby. Anderson once again makes it to the ropes in the corner, cheapshots him on the clean break and then rams Eaton’s leg into the post a few times.
Back in, Arn goes to work on the leg, dropping some knees on it and working a step over leglock with some extra leverage from the ropes. AA stomps on the leg some more, but Eaton manages to kick him off into the buckle in desperation. Eaton shows some fire by ramming Arn’s head into the buckle a number of times, but Arn goes right after the injured leg to kill the comeback and slams it onto the apron. Awesome psychology here. Eaton continues to show some life, even knocking Arn down with some shots, but his leg is too hurt and he can’t follow up with anything, allowing Anderson to catch him with a legscissors. Eaton won’t quit, however, so Arn releases the hold and pounds away on the leg for some more punishment. Eaton manages to hit a suplex, but again the leg gives out and Arn goes after it yet again.
Eaton keeps showing life while he’s in the hold, though, throwing some kicks and eventually escaping with a punch, but he’s too hurt and Anderson takes him back down with a snapmare. Arn eats knees on a slingshot splash, but once again it ends up hurting Eaton more than it does Arn because of the injured leg, so Anderson is able to catch a charging Bobby with the spinebuster for a nearfall. Arn misses another move off the top, but this time Eaton stops him with a punch and not the legs, which means NOW he is able to follow up with a swinging neckbreaker. The psychology in this match is just beyond perfect. Eaton struggles to slam Arn but still limps his way up to the top rope for the Alabama Jam. Horsemen Barry Windham comes out to help Arn, but Flyin’ Brian prevents him from doing so. Alabama Jam connects for the win and the title (AND A HUGE FUCKIN POP!!!) at 11:50. Bobby would then go on to transition the title to a young up-and-comer by the name of Stunnin’ Steve Austin, who I’m sure you’ve heard of before!
- Rating: This was a kickass match all the way! Just some good ol’ solid wrestling and a lesson in in-ring psychology, with Eaton never being able to follow up on his comebacks due to his leg constantly giving out. I loved the spot where Arn’s slingshot splash hit Eaton’s knees, yet it hurt Eaton more than it did Arn because of the leg. And when Arn blocked the next move with his hands instead of his legs, only then he was able to make the comeback. The wrestling was very smart, with Anderson constantly going for legscissors and leg holds to set his own pace and add more punishment, while Eaton sold like a champ the whole time, even when he was on offense, making Arn look great in defeat in the process as well. The big pop at the end also shows how effective the road to it was. I know the slower pace might not be for everyone, but it made all the sense in the world. Brilliant stuff, this was amazing. ****1/4
Main Event – WCW World Heavyweight Championship – Ric Flair(c) vs. Tatsumi Fujinami
Alright, this may be quite complicated to some, so I’m gonna take a second to explain. Even though WCW debuted their own World title in January of that year, Flair was still recognized as the NWA champion. At a special WCW/NJPW Supershow in March, Flair lost the NWA title to Fujinami, but near the end Fujinami sent Flair over the top rope, which is considered a DQ in America but not in Japan, allowing Fujinami to officially win the gold while at the same time giving the American fans (and WCW) a reason to claim Flair was still the champion. And here we are, doing the rematch on PPV to see who the real champion was… that is until Flair left the company a few months later due to Jim Herd’s stupid idea to cut his hair and call him Spartacus (I wish it was a joke too) and went to the WWF, leaving both sides without a champion!! Irony can truly be ironic some times. Anyway, onto the match.
Fujinami doesn’t even get announced as the NWA champion, which shows how much they were trying to distance themselves from the NWA. Lockup and a shoulderblock from Fujinami get things going. Flair showcases his technical ability with a drop toehold and we get a stalemate. They continue to feel each other out until Flair fires away with the chops and we get a chopfest, won by Fujinami who follows up with a backdrop out of the corner. Now Fujinami does a drop toehold of his own, and then goes to a bow and arrow to work the back, which gives JR the chance to bring up the plane crash accident like he always does. Take a drink. Flair kicks Fujinami into the corner, who fights back with a bridge roll up, but the momentum puts Flair on top instead and it gets two. Fujinami works a Boston crab (or is it the Tokyo crab!?) before changing his mind and goes with an Indian deathlock instead.
Flair fights out with a suplex and a greco roman thumb to the eye, which Fujinami completely no-sells and nails a flying forearm for two. How dare you no-sell the THUMB TO THE EYE OF DEATH, Road Warrior Fujinami! Fujinami then knocks Flair over the top rope with another flying forearm, which isn’t a DQ because reasons. Never mind something like this being the reason for this rematch existing to begin with. Flair crotches Fujinami on the railing and follows with a chop (with extra mustard) on the outside. Back in, Flair takes Fujinami to school by going after the leg and puts him in the figure four, which the crowd loves. Flair adds some bitchslaps while he’s got the hold locked in, which fires up Fujinami and allows him to turn over and put the pressure on Flair, who makes it to the ropes.
A slugfest follows, with Fujinami taking down Flair into a sharpshooter, but Flair’s on the ropes to break. Fujinami responds with a Saito suplex for two, and he works the count some more. The crowd is scary silent here, apart from when Flair is on offense. Flair escapes a side headlock with a backdrop suplex, and follows with the Flair kneedrop. They go to a pinfall reversal sequence on the mat, with Fujinami failing to bridge up in time and actually pinning himself (even though the ref stops the count at two) until they give up on the spot after three or four failed tries and Flair just pounds on him instead. Yawn. Had it been Flair in Fujinami’s spot it actually would make sense because of the bad back, but here it just looked awkward.
Flair dumps him and follows him outside, but eats some railing followed by some post for dessert on the outside and gets busted open. Fujinami pounds away back inside and whips Flair into the corner, setting up the Flair flip… which he can’t complete. This match is just so weird. Flair bails and falls on his face on a Flair flop outside, but gets a thumb to the eye on the apron and he goes up, only to get slammed off. Fujinami follows it up with Antonio Inoki’s Octopus hold, while the crowd chants ‘USA’. Ouch. Flair manages to slam him off to escape the hold, but he goes down as well. Fujinami pounds away on the bloody Flair in the corner, who fights back with chops. Slugfest follows, and Flair goes down off the Flair flop yet again. A double shoulderblock ends up sending both men to the floor for a double KO spot, but they both manage to break the count back in. Flair goes for a powerslam, only for Fujinami to land on top for two. A Flair backdrop is turned into an inside cradle for two. Fujinami gets an O’Connor roll, but Flair sends Fujinami into the referee on the kickout, allowing Flair to roll-up Fujinami with a handful of tights which a second referee counts to make Flair the undisputed champ at 18:39.
- Rating: I honestly don’t know what to think about this one. Flair worked heel here against Fujinami, which made for a pretty weird dynamic as the crowd didn’t get behind Fujinami at all. I was enjoying the action in the first few minutes, everything looked solid, but the second half of this match had some clear miscommunication spots and even a few awkward and bad looking ones too. Don’t get me wrong, it was far from being bad or anything, but it could and should’ve been much better. ***
END OF THE SHOW
Final thoughts: I’ll admit it, at one point I was afraid this show was gonna be an all-time suckfest, with way too many undercard matches such as the awful Sid/Gigante match or the Oz… whatever that was, but then things took a complete 180 turn starting from the taped fist match between Pillman and Windham. The final few matches featured two awesome ****+ match of the year contenders (Luger & Sting vs. Steiners; Arn vs. Eaton) and other good-to-great ones (Pillman vs. Windham; Simmons vs. Reed; Flair vs. Fujinami) and gave the show some much needed life. It looked like it was going to bomb big time in the middle, but it actually turned out to be quite okay. I’d say watch the final six matches or so – Sid/Gigante aside – yet skip the rest of the show and you’ll be just fine. 6/10
