Did You Know?


Scott Steiner substituted for Scott Hall as the Giant's (Paul Wight) partner in the match where Rick Steiner and Buff Bagwell (Marcus Bagwell) defeated them for the WCW World Tag Team Titles, with Bagwell turning on Rick, of course. That led to Rick giving the second half of the Tag Team Titles to jobber (wrestler whose role it is to lose to bigger names to make those bigger name wrestlers look good) Kenny Kaos (Kenneth M. Stasiowski) until they temporarily became vacant in January 1999 due to Rick suffering an injury. See more »

Match 1: Chris Jericho (c) vs Raven for the Television Championship - Raven comes out and announces to the crowd that he's not wrestling tonight. Jericho comes out and ultimately goads Raven into the match taking place. This was a pretty good opener with a lot of nice back and forth exchanges between the two. Some outside interference from Kanyon is Raven's downfall and he immediately submits as Jericho puts him in the Liontamer.

Match 2: Disco Inferno vs. Juventud Guerrera for the no. 1 contender spot to the Cruiserweight Championship - I really miss WCW's cruiserweight division. Such a great array of talent thrown together and a lot of really memorable matches on episodes of Nitro, Thunder and various pay-per-views. Disco Inferno is mainly remembered for this goofy gimmick, but it should not be forgotten how good of a wrestler he actually was. This match keeps the crowd entertained and delivers some nice cruiserweight style action. Inferno picks up the win with a piledriver and gets the title shot.

Match 3: Billy Kidman (c) vs. Disco Inferno for the Cruiserweight Championship - After the Nitro girls danced a few times, a couple dark matches, and Scott Steiner rambling to the Vegas crowd, Disco is back out for his title shot. Another really good match with Disco taking it to the champion Kidman through the majority of the match. Kidman hits the Shooting Star Press in the end and retains the title.

Match 4: The Giant & Scott Steiner (c) vs. Rick Steiner & Buff Bagwell for the WCW World Tag Team Championship - While this was an overbooked mess, it was still pretty funny to watch. Rick Steiner takes somewhere near 15 low blows and still manages to win the match on his own when Buff Bagwell walks out on him. Rick is able to recover and pin The Giant (Big Show now) to win the tag titles.

Match 5: Rick Steiner vs. Scott Steiner - As per the stipulation of the previous match, Rick now gets a one-on-one match with his brother Scott. Buff Bagwell returns in a suit with a Bill Clinton mask on and takes out the referee with Stevie Ray's slapjack. More overbooking, but still pretty hilarious watching all of this ridiculous stuff go on. Rick eventually gets the win on his brother Scott.

Match 6: Kevin Nash vs. Scott Hall - I have to give credit to WCW for this one, while it was wrong of them to exploit Scott Hall's alcoholism on television at this time, this was still a very deep and personal storyline that they created here between the former Outsiders. The first half of the match is Hall beating down Nash for what feels like forever and then momentum finally swings Nash's way and he beats down Hall for the latter half of the match. Nash hits his Jacknife powerbomb on Hall and then walks out. Scott Hall takes the count out win.

Match 7: Bret Hart (c) vs. Sting for the United States Heavyweight Championship - Pretty decent match from these two. Nothing really memorable, but it was still a good enough match to keep the crowd invested. Hart beats down Sting with a baseball bat and then puts an unconscious Sting in the sharpshooter to get the win. Sting is put on a stretcher and taken out.

Match 8: Hollywood Hogan vs. The Warrior - A really bad match. The timing was just off in this one. Add some botched spots on top of that and this really killed the crowd. Horace Hogan, who we think is out to get revenge on his uncle Hollywood, turns and nails Warrior with a chair. Hogan pins Warrior to end this debacle.

Match 9: Goldberg (c) vs. Diamond Dallas Page (DDP) for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship - This match had the crowd from the opening bell all the way until the end. The suspense that WCW wanted to have from the crowd on this match was there. At times it looked believable for DDP to break the streak and become champion. Really solid match, despite their problem with the pay-per-view going over time back when this aired in 1998. Goldberg gets the win and retains the title after a jackhammer. They both embrace and show mutual respect after the match.
