What: The greatest PPV of all time.
Why: The greatest PPV of all time.
Key Matches: Most of them. The first few matches, including the opening two-ring battle royal, are fun but nothing special. Everything that follows is pretty special. Jim Cornette takes on Paul E. Dangerously (Paul Heyman) in a Tuxedo Match, which is the greatest manager match in wrestling history. The Steiner Brothers team for the first time against the Varsity Club in a wild Texas Tornado tag team match that's all action.
It gets even better for the last four matches. Sting vs. The Great Muta is like two superheroes flying around. Lex Luger gives his finest performance in an incredible match with Ricky Steamboat. WarGames makes an appearance in fine form with The Midnight Express, The Road Warriors, and Steve Williams against the Samoan Swat Team and The Fabulous Freebirds. In the main event, Ric Flair has a crazy brawl with Terry Funk that's unlike any other Flair match you've seen, and they're joined afterwards by Sting and Muta for a long brawl that goes all over the Baltimore Arena.
Also: Ric Flair's closing interview covered in Muta's green mist and his own blood is one of his best.
I first saw this show when renting the home video version while home sick from school, and the memory sticks with me to this day. An untouchable, unforgettable card.
