I don't think they ever particularly led anyone to believe this match would be for the title in the build up, but when you have the world champion in the main event of the biggest show of the year, it's clear that a lot of people would assume it's for the title unless told otherwise. Other than whoever may have been disappointed about this not being a title change, I think this match succeeded about as well as it could have. This match was put together really well, never got boring and moved at a good pace. The crowd was really into it, it had the atmosphere of a big match, Piper unloading strikes on Hogan was awesome, and it had a nice chaotic ending with the babyface triumphing.

I liked this match a lot; very well laid-out David vs. Goliath (even if David himself is pretty darn big) type match. Giant does a good job selling and Luger is good as the tough underdog. Well done cluster fuck ending with a great finish. Crowd erupts and the announcers really sell it like a big deal, and Luger is put over huge.

Eddy looked awesome taking on the NWO until the numbers caught up.

Pretty good match, didn't impress me too much. Honestly, if anything in the match stood out for me it was that short dropkick Malenko hit on Dragon's leg when he was on the ground. Good finishing stretch and the crowd was really into it at times. Fine opener.


In Topic: Nobuhiko Takada vs Yoshihiro Takayama (UWFI 12/27/96)

This took a bit to get going but man was the big strike exchange awesome. Takada really laid into some of his kicks here. Crowd was really nuts for the big strikes and submissions too. Overall, good match.
