This is quite the sports entertainment match. They use all sorts of household cleaning items as weapons. Chyna makes a pretty decent effort here. Jarrett gets the win after hitting Chyna with the IC title, but the ref restarts the match because he used a championship belt, which is not a household item. Chyna catches Jarrett with a guitar shot when he's about to put the ref in a figure four and wins the IC title.

No wonder Jarrett held up Vince for more money to do this match. He carries Chyna to a respectable match while getting hit with such weapons as pies, a kitchen sink and powder. Not sure why they needed to do a Dusty finish though. Lawler spends most of the match cat calling his wife who leaves with Chyna to become her slave.

At the time Chyna was my least favourite wrestler, so I can't imagine I was too enamoured by this. The prestige of the IC Title had already been shot to pieces this year. I don't recall this stipulation ever being repeated. Jarrett departs, never to return. Yet.

Hey, this was a lot of fun!  Lots of bells and whistles, no down time, simple but effective match structure: Chyna takes it to Jarret in the beginning with weapons shots, goes through a table to put Jarrett in control and an effective re-start finish with a good, decisive ending.  In fact, this might actually be one of the best WWF matches of the year.  Even top 10?  Maybe.

This was straight Memphis bullshit but a fun match and kudos to Jarrett for making Chyna look competent in this setting. The false finish actually helped build drama to this moment and I did think JR and King on commentary do a strong job of putting over the win and the ramifications of it. **3/4

I thought the match was fun but hated the Dusty Finish (why would Teddy Long have even counted the pin if the pin wasn't going to count anyway?).  Fun for what it was though.

I get the symmetry of having Jarrett live by the Dusty Finish the previous month and die by the Dusty Finish tonight, but they should have had Chioda or someone come out to inform Long of what happened instead of him arbitrarily changing his mind. That said, this is way better than it deserves to be with Jarrett going balls-to-the-wall to carry an admittedly game Chyna to the match of her life.
