I love that Ventura compares Liger to the Predator - just awesome.  He really does push how intimidating his look is.  I think it's cool that Pillman probably expected this high flyer to come in and dominate by air, but he starts off dominating him on the mat instead.  The leg work is really good in the beginning, so yeah it's a bummer that they blew it off.  But, overall, they gave the crowd one hell of a show on this night.  I do agree that Rude/Steamboat is the match of the night, so if I were making a list, I'd have Rude/Steamboat above this.  However, I still think this is a great match.  The Turner edit of this PPV is, from my memory, is fantastic.  From what I remember, this was one of the ones where the edit really makes the show flow a lot better.  It's a very memorable and great card.  This being one of the two best matches of the night of course.

This does have the feel of more of an exhibition as it goes on, but that's what they needed to do if they were (as they thought they were) going to build up the division.  It is necessary to educate the audience(and the announcers as it were) on how it was going to go first.  As mentioned, they did have solid transitions, but it was more about showing off what could be done with a light heavyweight division.  And as much as I love Pillman, he was being carried to an extent.  He certainly stepped up when he needed to, but this was Liger's match.  Very good match and years ahead of it's time in the States.
