They got Michael Buffer to do intros. Tony seems offended by Bischoff's introduction. Buffer's intro of Vince could be so much more ridiculous than it is. So much good material they could have used there. Bischoff ends up winning by forfeit and this was a dramatic waste of time. It's not that the WWF was any less petty at "invading" WCW, but at least they used it to create new stars, where WCW used it just to get over Bischoff. How exactly did Eric win by BOTH forfeit and disqualification?

This whole idea was absolutely pathetic. The only highlight was Michael Buffer's wafer thin wrestling knowledge being exposed once more.

Well this was a match so we now have our winner for worst match of the year. Congrats Bischoff, you really showed him.

I can't tell if Schiavone is vainly attempting to keep this within storyline by putting Bischoff over as a heel, or if he's shooting. His "Oh well, whatever" doesn't sound like normal babyface announcer disgust. Agreed that aside from a subtle line about considering himself the top star, the intro of Vince has absolutely zero bite to it. Why is Bischoff selling disappointment and frustration at Vince's no-show when he outright said that was going to happen? The announcers all sound thankful that this fiasco is over.

A better match than anything on WrestlePalooza PPV.


As a segment, a waste of time.
