Last week's show is here:
This is on XWT Classics if you are interested in seeing it.
They showed a Sting preview interview clip saying this:
|"The knee is fine. I'm gonna come back 100%"|
|"Hello everyone and welcome to TBS and World Championship Wrestling"|
Johnny B Badd vs Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker
|"I don't accept checks" - Johnny B Badd|
The Diamond Studd vs Scott Allen
|"I'm the bad guy, look at me" - Diamond Studd|
|"If you like high impact wrestling with a nasty streak, then you're gonna like The Diamond Studd"|
|"And if that weren't enough, here comes the Diamond Death Drop"|
The Diamond Studd got the win with the Diamond Death Drop aka Razor's Edge. He basically did all the same things he would have done as Razor Ramon years later. He stiff his opponent hard and the jobber earned his money the hard way. Studd looked good here.
|"I'm not doing this for nothin, I'm doing this for you - The Little Stingers" - Sting on a Main Event(the show) promo|
He announced a rematch with Rick Steiner and Lex Luger. They showed clips of a Luger/Steiner confrontation where Steiner unofficially pinned Lex.
|"Oh yeah, it's chaos here" - JR|
The Patriots vs Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton
|"If the Patriots could defeat Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton, it would be the upset of the year" - Paul E|
|Arn after Chip's move|
|"They've not only been the best of friends but the worst of enemies but they've always had a mutual respect" - Paul E on Bobby/Arn|
|"Make up your mind, who do you wanna punch?" - Paul|
JR took us to clips of Jushin Liger vs Pegasus Kid, introducing Liger to the fans for his Battlebowl upcoming appearance:
|"The moonsault" - Jim Ross|
Cactus Jack vs Flyin Brian Pillman
|"I was told they almost fought all the way out of West Peach Street, before some of Atlanta's finest could get them separated" - Ross on the Jack/Hammer brawl from last week.|
|"He's gotta keep Cactus Jack off balance physically...he's already off balance mentally" - JR|
|"He needs a straightjacket"|
WCW Television Title - Stunning Steve Austin vs Arachniman
|"Many consider him the finest pure athlete in WCW. The reason behind that is that the TV title is defended more than any title in WCW."|
|"The name of the game is professional wrestling. The object is to exploit your opponents weakness. The object is render your opponent helpess and that's exactly what I did to Sting"|
|"Looks like Steve Austin's in a resthold right now" - Cannot believe Rick Rude just said that | "What's the deal with this Arachniman? Who is that?" - Rude|
Z-Man vs John Peterson
Interview with Sting:
|"Whenever I face any opponent, they wanna go for the weak point - the knee."|
|"Maybe, when I find out I'm 100% and stop goofing off, maybe, just maybe and everyone else will find out, that nice guys finish first."|
WCW Top Ten Rankings
Mr. Hughes vs Johnny Rich
Yes, Johnny Rich was pushed as a Tommy Rich relative previously. No sign of his cousin Richie though.
WCW Tag Team Titles - Ricky Steamboat and Dustin Rhodes vs The York Foundation
After watching last week, how does losing to Arachniman and Big Josh get you a tag title shot? Unrelated, I'm actually one of the biggest marks ever for the York Foundation. I think it was the music and referring to everyone in their full name.
And for some reason, this didn't take place at Center Stage. I'd like to think that it is because Center Stage wasn't big enough to house a York Foundation title match, but that remains to be seen.
|"Last week, we saw an altercation with Terrance and Morton. Apparently they have resolved their problems."|
|"Looks as if Ms. York is trying to get Taylor into the ring. He's not doing it"|
Overall thoughts: This show wasn't as good as last week but the main and the Cactus/Pillman match were good. The Diamond Studd squash also accomplished what it set out to do. I really liked the production overall of the show as the camera angles were great and they really just treated this as a sport, even with some clearly awful undercard gimmicks. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it, but it was alright.
