Just watched this last night. A really good and fun show from one of my favorite time periods in WCW. The opener with Steiners vs Vader and Mr. Hughes was a nice power match. Cactus and Van Hammer had a nice little FCA match, featuring Abdullah dressed as a cowboy, Nick Patrick with a sweet mullet that made him look like Kenny Powers, and Missy Hyatt taking a bath in a horse trough. The Rhodes/Windham/Simmons vs Arn/Eaton/Zybysko match was pretty good as well as the main event with Sting/Steamboat vs Rude/Austin. Plus we saw the debut of Jesse Ventura as then WCW head K. Allen Frye introduced him and announced the main event of Superbrawl II to be Luger vs Sting.

Plus WWE dubbed EVERY theme song except for The Freebirds (who came out to lip synch their new song badly), yes even PN News needed a theme dub. The best part was Big Josh being dubbed in favor of a horrible generic instrumental version of "O Susanna" I'm starting to get a feeling that WWE just doesn't care any more and just dubs everything to save time finding out what they can and cannot use. But at least WCW had started to use different audio channels for their TV shows by this time, so we had no need for fake Gary Michael Cappetta, or drowned out commentary.

So anyone watch yet? Please discuss amongst yourselves.

I loved this period as well, I wish they would feature more stuff on 24/7 with The Dangerous Alliance.

Yeah this was a fun approximation of WCW circa 1992. Some solid wrestling, some goofy and bad gimmicks, some guys who had yet to hit their stride. The most amusing part of the show was how blatantly obvious it was that Luger was a lame duck champ. He phones in a taped interview segment instead of being on the show to sign the contract and is rarely mentioned. I didn't start watching wrestling again until a month or so after this show aired, so it was fun to catch up on a few things.
