Interview with Luger and Sting: Sting is not happy about what happened on Nitro. Luger says he has a short fuse and apologizes. Sting doesn't like Jimmy Hart being with Luger and wants Luger to make a decision. Sting will give Luger another chance.
1. Barrio Brothers vs Sting and Luger
- Rematch from a couple weeks ago. Barrio Brothers do some nice double team moves on Sting but Luger is too much for them and Sting gets the win with the scropion and Luger with the Torture Rack.

Winner: Belfast Brusier
Superbrawl Control Center: Double Cage matches, Respect Match,(Mean Gene then does a Rodney Dangerfield impression) Sting/Luger vs Harlem Heat and the winners take on Road Warriors.

- Just throws and double chokeslams for the win.
Interview with Giant and Jimmy Hart: Giant smells the Golden one and will seal hogan's fate in a cage.
4. Johnny B Badd vs Bull Pain
- Good match with Badd hitting a tope con holio followed by a leg drop for the win. And yes it's the same Bull Pain from IWA MS fame.
Winner: Johnny B badd
Johnny B Badd interview: It's funny during half of these interviews Mean Gene is wearing a bowtie and the other half he's wearing a full tie. DDP lost 6 million of Kim's money and Johnny is looking for revenge. Kim is not too fond of this match and she doesn't want to leave Johnny.
WCW Hotline report: What WWF superstar is coming to wcw? What former WWF guy from Hawaii is going back to WWF and had a stop over in WCW?(Crush?)

Winner: Nasty Boys.
Interview with Macho and Liz: Mean gene of course asks about Hogan because WCW= All Hogan all the time.
Clips from Nitro of Pilman/Sullivan. Someone takes out Arn with a broom.
7. Joey Maggs and Cobra vs Arn Anderson and Brian Pillman

Interview with the Horseman: It's all about Respect.
8. Macho Man Randy Savage vs Chris Benoit
- THIS IS WAR. Rematch from Nitro. Benoit goes after the back and hits the LIONTAMER. ODE TO JERICHO. Great match with Savage taking a beating but the Horsemen come out and attack Savage(without Pilman).
Hogan interview "from Venice Beach: Typical Hogan interview on Giant.
Final Thoughts: The main event was good but the rest of the matches were forgetable. This was all about Hogan/Giant and Savage/Flair.
