Scaffold Tag Team Match – ‘Beautiful’ Bobby Eaton & PN News vs. ‘Stunning’ Steve Austin & Terrance Taylor(w/ Lady Blossom)

IMG credit: WWE & placetobenation.com

Man, what a PPV debut for Austin, things could’ve certainly gone south quickly in a match like this. For those of you not familiar with the match type, the first team to capture the flag (over on the opponents’ corner) and take it to their own corner OR to throw an opponent 20 ft down all the way to the ring wins. Eaton is the only one with experience in these matches, having been in a few back in his Midnight Express days in the 80s, so he steps up to start in a nice bit of psychology. Taylor is scared to death of the height, so he chickens his way out (easy target, I know!) and Austin comes in. Austin literally calculates each and every step he takes up there, while Eaton fakes him and scares the shit out of him. Austin’s not backing down, though, only to once again lose his balance. Eaton asks for a test of strength, which Austin reluctantly accepts while his hands literally shake.

Austin thumbs him in the eye but Eaton quickly comes back with a faceplant, and Austin nearly falls off the scaffold. You can bet these guys were legit taking deep breaths out there, this stip is way too dangerous and shit could go wrong at any given second, with so little space for them to move around. PN News steps up and shoves Austin all the way into Taylor in their corner. News awkwardly falls on top of Taylor on a “test of strength” that makes for an … hmm… interesting visual to say the least. Eaton saves the painful spot by pulling Taylor off of News by his legs into his corner, while News stays over in Austin’s corner for a double slugfest. IT’S BREAKING LOOSE IN THE SCAFFOLD BY GAWD. We get a loud Bobby chant, which makes me even more sad to see him in this spot after the classic bout with Arn Anderson at the last PPV. PN News then lays down near the heel corner and stays there for a few seconds, probably taking a nap due to how boring this match has been. I certainly am not the one who can blame him. News finally wakes up as all four guys go at it in the heel corner, and then… everyone forgets about Bobby, allowing him to grab the flag and take it to his corner for the win at 6:19. What kind of stupid bullshit finish is that? But wait, that’s obviously not it, who am I fooling! Austin climbs down to get some hairspray from Lady Blossom, before climbing back up to blind both Eaton and News with it, setting up the long awaited HUGE spot of… wait for it …. wait for it….. wait for it……. WAIT FOR IT….. all four climbing down the scaffold together and the heels walking away. Fuck all of this. DUD

Meanwhile, JR & Tony address Ric Flair’s departure and talk about how this is a new beginning for WCW. Speaking of beginnings in WCW…

ERIC BISCHOFF makes his first appearance in the series, interviewing Arn Anderson & Paul E Dangerously. They have some words against their opponents Rick Steiner and Missy Hyatt in tonight’s steel cage mixed tag team match. Oh great, another shit match tonight. Just hold on, this will get even dumber by the end of the show!

‘Z-Man’ Tom Zenk vs. The Diamond Studd(w/ Diamond Dallas Page)

IMG credit: WWE

DDP calls out a girl from the crowd to strip Hall’s clothes, but Zenk out-pimps him by coming down to the ring with four girls by his side. Zenk cleans house with a dive to start and he runs wild with a couple of corner clotheslines, but DDP pulls the top rope down and dumps Zenk on a criss cross. Zenk goes after him, which allows Studd to cheapshot him from behind and take over. Back in, Hall slugs away and rams him into the buckles. Choking follows but Hall misses a clothesline and Zenk crossbodies him for two. Scott stays in control with some chops in the corner and works an abdominal stretch. He uses the ropes for leverage, but the referee eventually catches him and Zenk escapes with a hiptoss. Zenk misses an elbowdrop, though, and Hall takes over once more with his “very basic, very simplistic” offense, in JR’s words (right on the money), before Hall blocks a Zenk hiptoss and turns it into a chokeslam. Hall gets too cocky and Zenk nearly steals it with a sunset flip, but Hall cuts him off right away with a clothesline. Zenk tries another sunset flip, but this time Hall blocks it with a cheapshot. Zenk blocks a charge and gets a superkick, as Hall bails. They take the fight to the floor for a while, and a Zenk missile dropkick back inside gets two, with DDP breaking up the pin with a slap. Zenk brings him into the ring by the hair and superkicks him, which gets no pop at all, before Hall puts him away with a backdrop suplex at 9:00.

  • Rating: Too much kicky punchy offense for my liking from Hall, who was still VERY green and didn’t have his stuff together yet, but the action was solid and perfectly watchable. **

Ron Simmons vs. THE BIG HUMAN BEING OZZZZZZZZZ(w/ The Great Wizard)

IMG credit: WWE

Oh no, not Ron. I have a bad, bad, bad gut feeling about this one. Nash is so green at this point that he does his big face reveal with his back turned to the hard camera. Ron gets a noticeable big pop, which makes me even more scared about this. Lockup gets things going, with Nash giving him a clean break. What a heel. Another lockup goes nowhere, and Simmons then struggles to fight out of Nash’s side headlock. He eventually does, though, and we get a stalemate. They get into a battle of the shoulderblocks, with nobody selling, until Simmons charges into the big boot. Nash gets a shoulderblock, but Simmons takes him down with a drop toehold, with Nash taking an awkward bump. Nash rakes the eyes to cut him off, though, and he pounds away with the SIMPLISTIC OFFENSE OF DEATH. Man, JR is on fire on commentary here! Nash ends up missing a charge in the corner, and then Simmons clotheslines him over the top after three tries for the obvious DQ at 5:29… nah, who am I kidding, take a drink!

Back in, Nash asks for a test of strength and we stay there for a while, until Ron escapes with an overhead suplex only to miss a dropkick. Nash regains control with a clothesline and follows it up with a sloppy sideslam for two. Oh god. Nash proceeds to dump Simmons for a cheapshot from Wizard, and back in Simmons can’t complete a sunset flip. Nash follows it up with a bearhug, but he’s completely lost out there and awkwardly releases the hold immediately, having probably been told by either Ron or the ref it’s time to go home, as he misses a clothesline and eats a dropkick instead. Simmons shoulderblocks his legs twice and then hits a regular one for the win at 7:55.

  • Rating: Good lord, Nash didn’t look good at all here. This was the end of Nash’s stupid push as Oz (thankfully), after he reportedly refused a pay cut to 300 dollars per night. Simmons tried his best and saved it from being a complete DUD, but it was pretty much a lost cause, the match sucked. 1/2*

Meanwhile, it’s time to have fun now with…

THE WCW TOP TEN RANKING!

Alright, I’m going to do my best to try and take this seriously. Here we go!

  • WCW World Championship top ten contenders list: 10) Johnny B. Badd; 9) Ron Simmons (this low????); 8) The Diamond Studd; 7) El Gigante (oh please, cut the crap); 6) Arn Anderson; 5) ‘Beautiful’ Bobby Eaton; 4) TV Champion ‘Stunning’ Steve Austin; 3) Sting; 2) Barry Windham; 1) US Champion Lex Luger – the champion is the highly decorated Vacant

Richard Morton(w/ Alexandra York) vs. Robert Gibson

IMG credit: WWE

Having Ricky Morton as a heel sounds too dumb of an idea even for WCW, but here it is. Gibson jumps Morton on the ramp before the bell and we get a slugfest out there to start, won by Gibson. He goes on the attack back inside, but Morton immediately bails to get some advice from York and the computer. That advice? “If WCW asks you to turn heel, please say no” but he’s like “too late” and he gets back in. Gibson blocks an irish whip and goes to the corner, but he stops to taunt the crowd and Gibson catapults him all the way back inside. Gibson blocks a hiptoss and slams him, as Morton bails yet again. Morton asks for a handshake back inside, but Morton goes after him and Morton bails again… Back in, Morton sends Gibson face first into the buckle by his tights, and then goes right after the injured knee by ramming it into the post.

Morton goes to work on the leg and proceeds to rip the tights apart. Gibson blocks a figure four with a cradle for two, and back after the knee goes Morton. Gibson manages to sunset flip him for two despite struggling, and Morton puts him in the figure four. That lasts for exactly a minute before Morton finally reverses the hold and puts the pressure on Morton, who makes it to the ropes. Back after the leg goes Morton, as this just isn’t clicking at all and keeps going forever. Morton throws knees and pounds away on the leg for a few more minutes, before Gibson finally gets an enziguiri and dumps Morton. They take the fight to the floor where they double dropkick each other, and then York gives Morton the computer and distracts the ref, allowing him to use it for the win at 17:03. Yawn.

  • Rating: Nope, this simply didn’t work. I get what they were going for and it looked solid on paper, but in execution it was just long and quite boring. Morton just didn’t come across as a natural heel, and nobody cared about his “vicious” attack on Gibson’s leg. Avoid this match, you’ll be very disappointed. *1/2

Alright, if these two couldn’t save this show, I’ve lost all hope now. Let’s see if there’s some kind of miracle incoming.

Six Men Elimination Tag Team Match – The Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes, Jimmy Garvin & Badstreet)(w/ Big Daddy Dink) vs. Dustin Rhodes & The Young Pistols (Tracy Smothers & Steve Armstrong)

IMG credit: WWE

Dustin trying to cut a pre-match promo like his father with the forced speech impediment and fake accent is so bad, and exactly why the Goldust gimmick and him being forced to add his own personality was the best thing that could’ve happened to his career. Hayes moonwalks to start, and Dustin responds with his own (bad) version. Hayes pounds away to start but Dustin fires away with powerslams on all the Freebirds, and then he runs wild with Dusty’s flip flop & fly and the bionic elbows, which gets no reaction from the crowd. Yikes. Hayes obviously bails, and Garvin gets in a cheap knee allowing Hayes to take over. Dustin fights back with a double faceplant on Hayes & Garvin, though, and the Pistols go up for stereo flying shoulderblocks to clean house. The Freebirds stall some more, and back in Garvin asks for Tracy to get tagged in. Dustin obliges, but the Freebirds stop for some posing that would leave Hulk Hogan jealous. Tony wonders why the fuck Tracy is literally just standing there and allowing all this instead of hitting them, which is a pretty good point. Tracy runs wild with some dropkicks but ends up missing one, only to hit a flying back elbow smash. Steve goes up to follow, but Garvin awkwardly stands there and then just leaves the ring after Steve stands there like “it’s not supposed to be you”, and about ten seconds later he finally does it to Badstreet instead. What a mess.

The Freebirds obviously stall some more and we get a stalemate, as it’s back to Hayes and Tracy. Steve comes in off the tag for a criss cross sequence, but Badstreet pulls the top rope and dumps him. Dink adds his own clothesline on the floor, followed by a Badstreet slam on the floor. Hayes cheapshots Steve on the apron and dumps him once more, and this time he even gets some railing for dessert. Badstreet comes in with a clothesline out of the corner on Tracy, and it’s back to Hayes for a sleeper, which is very appropriate given this show. Off to Garvin for his own sleeper, as you can literally hear the guy in row 17 getting up to get some popcorn. Hayes cheapshots Tracy and goes for the DDT, but he backdrops out of it and makes the “hot” tag to Armstrong. He runs wild with dropkicks on everyone and a double shoulderblock by the Pistols on Badstreet, but the crowd doesn’t give a shit about any of this. Steve stops to go after Badstreet’s mask, however, leaving him open for a clothesline from Hayes. Him and Badstreet double DDT Steve for the pin at 13:49.

Steve Armstrong eliminated

Hayes then backdrops Tracy over the top rope, and this time it counts as a DQ at 14:04. Save your drinks for another day!

Michael Hayes eliminated

Garvin goes after Tracy now, and Badstreet comes in with a flying double axehandle. Smothers tries to make a comeback and gets the tag to Dustin, but the ref missed it. The Birds take advantage and double DDT him behind the ref’s back to put him out at 15:16.

Tracy Smothers eliminated

Dustin immediately comes in with a flying clothesline on Garvin for another pin at 15:24, leaving Dustin alone with Badstreet.

Jimmy Garvin eliminated

Badstreet takes over with a nice standing big boot followed by a flying double axehandle. Elbowdrop gets two. Badstreet slams him and he goes up for another double ax, but this time Dustin catches him and takes him down with the flying clothesline. However, Dink distracts the referee, and it only gets a delayed two. Dink enters the ring, but Dustin bulldogs Badstreet while kicking Dink in mid-air in the process at the same time, and that’s all at 17:10.

  • Rating: The finishing sequence was alright, the finish itself was pretty good even, but the match as a whole was really poor and ridiculously long. *

Johnny B. Badd(w/ Theodore Long) vs. The Yellow Dog(w/ An Actual Yellow Dog)

IMG credit: WWE

The Yellow Dog is poor Brian Pillman. And then, just as I thought this show couldn’t get any worse, this happens…

Yellow Dog – god, I can’t believe I’m typing this – cheapshots Badd on a clean break and blows him a kiss, prompting Badd to go after him. Pillman fights back with a hiptoss and a great dropkick, and then follows it up with a chop that sends Badd all the way to the floor. And he takes the time to talk some strategy with Teddy Long, which I’m sure goes something like this “make sure you get the rights to Johnny B. Badd if you ever feel like leaving for Vince, ya feel me playa?”. Should’ve paid attention, Johnny. Pillman gets a crucifix for two, but Badd rakes the eyes and blocks an O’Connor roll, only for Pillman to dropkick Johnny right onto Teddy, knocking him off the apron. Teddy challenges Pillman for a chase, allowing Badd to jump him from behind on the floor. Badd ducks a Pillman high crossbody, but only sort of gets on his knees instead of moving forward and getting out of the way, as Pillman awkardly lands on his back. What is up with this show? Johnny goes up for a flying sunset flip for two, and he goes right after the mask. Pillman counters with a jawbreaker, but Badd catches him with a high knee. Badd misses a left, though, and ends up eating a spinning wheel kick. Pillman backdrops him and goes up for a high crossbody, but Teddy jumps him for the DQ at 6:00. Teddy eats Air Pillman to close the segment.

  • Rating: Very sloppy at times, but at least it wasn’t boring as hell. And at this point I’ll take what I can get on this stupid show. *1/2

Lumberjack Match – Big Josh vs. Black Blood

IMG credit: WWE

Black Blood is Billy Jack Haynes, but he’d leave after this show due to a pay dispute. The heels beat up Josh to start, but then the babyfaces over on the other side simply throw him back in. Josh chops away in the corner and runs wild for a bit, as the heels allow Blood to bail a little bit over on the heel side. Josh hits a weird move out of the corner, that I believe was meant to be either a clothesline or an uppercut but ended up being neither, and Josh steps on Blood’s belly. Josh dumps Blood on the babyface side, who put him right back inside immediately. Josh slugs away in the corner, but Blood rams his head into the buckle to escape. He follows with a slam onto the top rope and a high knee, before sending him into the babyfaces. They allow him to catch his breath on the floor (what hypocrites), while the lumberjacks start a big fight at ringside. IT’S BREAKING LOOSE IN BALTIMORE! Blood brings Josh back in with a vertical suplex from the apron back inside, but misses a kneedrop. JR claims the fans are getting their money’s worth since there are two fights happening at the same time, but I’m pretty certain they’d have a thing or two to say about that. Josh ends up eating boot on a blind charge, but the ref turns his attention to the outside as the lumberjacks start fighting again. Blood uses this distraction to grab an axehandle, but Dustin Rhodes hits him in the leg with his own axehandle and Josh cradles him for the win at 5:39. Damn, Dustin Rhodes managed to come back from a 2-on-1 disadvantage in his own match and win it AND was also the big hero in this one. I wonder who was booking.

  • Rating: This wasn’t awful or anything, just a bunch of nothing really. 1/4*

El Gigante vs. One Man Gang(w/ Kevin Sullivan)

IMG credit: WWE

Good lord please end this show already. Gigante comes out with four midgets looking like Gang and Sullivan because WCW. The midgets outsmart Gang before the bell, and he has second thoughts about facing Gigante, but Gigante brings him back into the ring. Gigante takes over with the CLUBBING BLOWS OF GIGANTIC DOOM, and a Gang shoulderblock ends up knocking him out instead. Gang bails and Gigante catches him with a hiptoss back inside, and follows with horrible spears in the corner that miss by a mile. Gang goes up with a flying clothesline that gets Gigante down on one knee, giving us the always awesome visual of Gigante trying to sell. Gang beats him up with a wrench and goes to work on Gigante’s leg, as this poor crowd is doing their best not to fall asleep. Gang continues to beat him up with the wrench and hits the 747 splash, but Gigante kicks out WITH AUTHORITY BY GAWD and sends Gang flying to the outside. Gang goes up and stands there for a while doing nothing, as Gigante clearly forgot the spot, and then slams him off the top once Gang visually calls the spot. Major yawner. Gigante actually gets a suplex(!), but Sullivan gets on the apron and eats the CLAW OF DEATH until Gang cheapshots him from behind. Sullivan hands OMG some “powder or salt or something” according to Schiavone (I’ll throw my two cents in and say they stole JYD’s crack), but Gigante kicks it back in his face with a big boot. Gigante follows it up with a clothesline to the back of the head for the win at 6:13.

  • Rating: No surprise here, this was laughably bad. DUD

Russian Chain Match – Sting vs. Nikita Koloff

IMG credit: WWE

This is finally more like it. First to touch the four corners in a row wins it, with no disqualifications and them tied to each other with the chain. A shoving match quickly turns into a slugfest, and they take the fight to the floor where Sting slams him on the railing a few times. Back in, Sting rams his head into the buckle a number of times, as the crowd has FINALLY woke up for this match. Sting chokes Nikita with the chain on the outside, and he goes for the corners already. He gets two, but Nikita holds on to the ropes and kicks Sting away. Now it’s Nikita who gets to ram Sting into the railing before taking him out with a chain-assisted clothesline on the floor. Nikita goes to work with the chain, but Sting blocks him and Nikita ends up eating some railing and the post as well. However, Nikita uses the chain back inside and drops an elbow on Sting’s back. Nikita chokes Sting all the way down with the chain. Sting fights back and uses the chain to low blow Nikita but, apparently having balls made of steel or something, Nikita takes him down and goes for the corners. He drags Sting and gets three corners, but Sting kicks him off and they both touch two corners at the same time while in a lockup. Nikita breaks that up with a low blow, but Sting retaliates with his own and they both race to the third corner and touch it at the same time again. They get into a slugfest on their way to the final corner, with Nikita holding on to the ropes with his legs to prevent Sting from getting there, and Nikita hits the Sickle. He takes a long time taunting, though, and Sting charges with the Stinger Splash, but ends up sending Nikita into the corner first for the win at 11:38. Nikita goes after Sting afterwards, but the chain gets caught on the ropes between his legs and Sting low blows him again to end the segment.

  • Rating: This match was alright and they worked the stip pretty well, but they went a bit too far with the ballshots near the last few minutes. Honestly, I thought their match at the last Clash was much better. But regardless, this stands as the best match of the show thus far! **1/2

Vacant WCW World Heavyweight Championship – Steel Cage Match – Lex Luger vs. Barry Windham

IMG credit: WWE & f4wonline.com

A new belt is introduced here, as the big gold belt still technically represented the NWA World Championship that Flair, much like every NWA Champion at that time, paid a 25,000$ deposit for, and since WCW didn’t give him the money back when they fired him, the belt was legally Ric Flair’s property and couldn’t be used by WCW! We get huge “we want Flair” chants before the bell, and they shoulderblock each other to start, but no one goes down. They each go for a suplex, but neither can do it and we get a stalemate. A shoulderblock knocks Luger down, but he responds with a hiptoss and we get another stalemate. Windham dropkicks a charging Luger, but gets a slam blocked with a cradle by Luger that gets two, as they’re pretty cautious in these first few minutes. Luger slams him but misses an elbowdrop as we get a small “nature boy” chant underway. Windham pounds away in the corner and backdrops Luger, as we get another stalemate. And more “we want Flair” chants.

They get into a wrestling reversal sequence on the floor, but Windham fakes him and simply bitchslaps the taste out of Luger’s lips. I always loved that spot. Windham follows with a suplex, but Luger blocks it and turns it into his own suplex. Windham fights back with a slam and goes for a figure four (wrong night to do that), but Luger powers his way out of it and atomic drops him. Windham shoulderblocks him but ends up running into a sleeper when going for a second one, but he escapes the hold and eventually catches a charging Luger with his own sleeper. Luger rams Windham into the buckle to break, though, and a DDT gets two. Luger goes up but gets slammed off, and Windham adds a kneedrop for two. Now it’s Windham who goes up, and he prevents Luger from following him, but then misses a flying elbowdrop and knocks himself out.

Luger starts making the comeback and runs wild with the series of clotheslines for two. Back elbow smash gets two. Luger follows it up with a powerslam and calls for the Torture Rack, which the crowd approves. Luger gets it locked in, but gets way too close to the ropes, as Windham uses them to backflip out of the hold and takes him down with a backdrop suplex. And we get a double KO spot. That was a pretty good sequence. They both get up at the same time, with Luger taking him up and actually going for the superplex, but Windham holds on to the cage and shoves Luger onto the mat. Windham comes down with a flying clothesline, followed by a regular one and a slam for two. Barry goes up again and gets a missile dropkick for two more. However, Harley Race & Mr. Hughes come down and distract Windham, allowing Luger to hit a knee in the corner followed by a piledriver for the win and the World Title at 12:25. This was a double turn, because of course WCW decided that turning their most popular babyface into a heel on a night where the fans particularly NEEDED a feel-good ending would be a good idea.

  • Rating: The match itself was very good, with both wrestlers telling a great story of how well they knew each other – being former tag champs – and playing safe in the first few minutes before switching gears and exchanging some nice reversals before Luger’s long awaited World Championship win. They did a great job and won the crowd over in spite of the initial Flair chants, so props to them for it. ***1/2

(Alleged) Main Event – Steel Cage Mixed Tag Team Match – Arn Anderson & Paul E Dangerously vs. Rick Steiner & Missy Hyatt

The Great American Bash '91 - Classic Wrestling Review
IMG credit: WWE & classicwrestlingreview.com

Dick Slater & Dick Murdoch come out and take Missy Hyatt to the back, which was done to cover up the fact that the Maryland State Athletic Commission legitimately didn’t allow intergender matches. Why do you book it in the first place then? This is just so stupid. Steiner goes at it alone, as Paul hides in the corner and it’s pretty much a singles match. Rick blocks an Arn leapfrog with a powerslam, but gets distracted with Paul in the corner and allows Arn to cheapshot him. Rick goes for a stungun, but Paul goes up and nails Rick in the back of the head to block it. Rick catches a flying Arn with the Steinerline and takes him out, leaving him alone with Paul out there. Heyman tries to climb the cage, but Rick brings him back in and finishes Paul with a slam and the Steinerline at 2:08. After the match, JR says he’s glad there are no more matches left on the show. I love shoot comments that aren’t supposed to be shoot comments.

  • Rating: Just complete stupidity. DUD

END OF THE SHOW

Final thoughts: Highest recommendation to avoid. Maybe watch Luger vs. Windham for the World Title if you’re really interested, that match is really good, but for the love of god please avoid everything else. What an absolutely awful PPV. 2/10
