Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs. Marc Mero for the WWF Intercontinental Championship:
Rocky Maivia vs. Salvatore Sincere:
The biggest takeaway was that Jim Cornette is now managing Tom Brandi?
Cibernetico and Pierroth vs. New Rockers:
This was a bit of a AAA invasion, with a post match interview with Mil Mascaras to boot. The Forbidden Door is alive and well in WWF in late 96-early 97.
Bret Hart vs. Fake Razor Ramon:
Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit:
Good match as always, the post match stuff was interesting, with dissension between the Horsemen over Benoit’s affair with Woman.
Lex Luger vs. Tombstone:
The biggest takeaway here was that 911 from ECW was in WCW for a cup of coffee.
Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Mr. JL:
Glacier vs. Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker:
Awful match, Glacier was trying new moves, but felt very rehearsed and it seemed like Parker just would not sell for Glacier.
Amazing French Canadians vs. Public Enemy:
Big Bubba vs. Konnan:
This match ended via an over the top rope DQ. Damn it, Watts!
Dean Malenko vs. Lord Steven Regal for the WCW World Television Championship:
This match ended via a time limit draw, which I’m not crazy about, I don’t know, maybe it’s too old school for me. Shame, because it was a good match.
Jeff Jarrett vs. Rick Steiner:
Disaster of a match. NWO Sting comes down to interfere and Jarrett tries to pin him?
The show would end with the second Hogan promo of the night and Bischoff doing a bad Piper impression. Was a decent go home promo for Hogan/Piper at Starrcade.
Overall, Nitro was probably the more interesting show.
On to the Nightly.
