Yeah, once again, I have the Turner Home Entertainment version. That means there is some matches that have been cut and one that really shocks me is the Pillman/Morton match. Having followed some of the quarter and semifinal matches of this title tournament on Worldwide, I was kind of bummed that it’s missing. Good to know there’s Pillman/Liger stuff on the way though. Here’s what was edited off the Turner version. Credit goes to ProWrestlingHistory.com!
- Big Josh & PN News beat The Creatures (Joey Maggs & Johnny Rich) (5:16) when News made the pin.
- Bobby Eaton pinned Terrance Taylor (16:00).
- Bill Kazmaier beat Oz (3:59) via submission.
- Van Hammer pinned Doug Sommers (1:13).
- Brian Pillman pinned Richard Morton (12:45) to win the first WCW Light Heavyweight Title.
On a personal sidenote, this is probably the earliest PPV of my childhood that I can recall listening to for free through the static and having reactions like “Oh man! I just saw Ron Simmons for a second there!” From that standpoint, I believe we all know where I’m coming from. I remember being disappointed that Luger retained the title (oops, spoiler!) and then flipping over to watch game seven of the Braves/Twins World Series to witness my beloved Braves lose- boy, I was one upset five year-old. Anyways, let’s get to the PPV.
Your hosts are Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone! (more…)
