Pillman still has things to offer on the mic, but in the ring there's just nothing left. His long tights don't cover the fact that his lower legs have practically decayed--it's honestly scary to watch because it feels like both ankles are ready to snap at any time. Owen pickpocketing the fallen referee was cute, but it would have made a bit more sense if it were Pillman who bumped him. The whole handcuffed-to-the-ringpost stipulation and Goldust getting on the mic to make peace and make the match is all very Memphis, even during a Memphis-esque time for the WWF. Goldust is pretty badly shoehorned in here thanks to the HBK situation.

Fun brawl. 1997 Brian Pillman is definitely not 1991 Brian Pillman. He's lost a lot of his agility. He still takes a couple of big bumps in this. He gets his nose cut on a chair during a melee on the floor. I loved Austin going to each handcuffed HF member & wailing away. He should be doing that because that's what his character does. Austin stuns the referee which allows Owen to take the handcuff keys & free himself. The other HF members free themselves as well & attack Austin. Shamrock & Goldust run down to fight off the Hart Foundation. Austin & Shamrock see each other & have a stare off. Their confrontation is pretty heated with Austin trying to trick Shamrock into another stunner but Shamrock suplexing him instead. The continue to fight until LOD & Goldust break them up. Goldust cuts a good promo saying the HF wants them fighting amongst themselves. He suggest they are the five best wrestlers in the WWF & to get together & accept the Hart Foundation's challenge for Canadian Stampede. Austin reluctantly agrees on the condition that they will only be teaming once & that they realize their will be no hanging out & beer drinking together after Calgary. I also liked him saying he's tired because a more fired up Austin might have just swung for the fences. Great segment overall.
