WCW takes a week off, only to return with a solid show, but a not-so-solid main event. It's a 6-Man Tornado Tag Double Strap Lumberjack Match... Yes, that's a thing here in WCW! It may be the most overbooked shlock of a match in company history up to this point! And that covers a lot of ground. Plus, Brian Pillman has a 900 number, the Giant turns on one of his own, Lex Luger is the NEW TV Champion as Johnny B. Badd is gone from WCW, and THE STEINER BROTHERS RETURN TO TAKE ON THE ROAD WARRIORS!!!

And over in the WWF, can Vince McMahon capitalize when Nitro takes a week off? Both Razor Ramon and Diesel are leaving the company. House shows and Ratings are up, though injuries plague the company. Two memorable features involving Goldust and Roddy Piper! Bret and Shawn train for WrestleMania. The Ultimate Warrior is back! HBK vs. 1-2-3 Kid. Bret vs. HHH. Softball Sid Vicious. Diesel revs up his feud with the Undertaker. Yokozuna finds allies in the battle against Camp Cornette. Plus, the Ringmaster becomes STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN, and Ted Turner said whaaaaat?

  • The newly crowned TV Champion Lex Luger battles Alex Wright, and Eric Bischoff has a field day trashing Johnny B. Badd
  • In the most overbooked segment in Nitro history (up to this point anyway).... It's 6-Man action with Hulk Hogan, Macho Man, and the Booty Man battling Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, and Kevin Sullivan in a Lumberjack Double Strap Match... Not only do the Lumberjacks have straps, but so do the wrestlers in this Tornado style tag match of complete shlock... Plus, dissension in the Dungeon of Doom when the Giant and Loch Ness go at it... And for some reason, this is a perfect setting for Kimberly to court the Booty Man, complete with flowers.
  • Post-match promo with Flair, Anderson, and Sullivan as they hype the Doomsday Cage Match at Uncensored.
