WCW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Goldberg defeated Sting

This has got to go down as one of the most embarrassing wrestling PPV’s in the history of this business. There were two matches worth watching on this show: Flair vs DDP in a Strap Match and Goldberg vs Sid Viscous. The rest of the matches on the card had botched or very confusing finishes. Then came Hogan vs Sting. That’s when everything really went to shit. Hogan laid down for Sting, then later in the show Sting lost the title to Goldberg. For the whole show the commentary team kept commenting that they had no clue what was going on even to the point that they were not sure whether Goldberg vs Sting was for the title. They were actually taken by surprise after Goldberg won and was handed the belt. This show was the creative genius of Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara. While these guys had been successful before this and are without question very talented at what they do, I’m sure even they will admit this was not their best work.

This show was not something you can look back on and say “YES that was better than what they are doing today” . You would have to be the most deluded, braindead idiot to think this is better than what is on offer today.
