Talk about it here.

The "You'll be back" chant cracked me up, and really, if Shane Douglas and Sabu returned, what reason was there to think PE wouldn't? I love that New Jack got a pie to the face and stopped to taste it, even if his pre-match promo burying Harlem Heat and Sherri made absolutely no sense. So yeah, this is exactly what you'd expect it to be -- lots of weapon shots and blood. Wrestling moves like Mustafa Saed's sunset flip and spinning toehold look kinda silly in this context, to be honest. Why even bother?

Oh, and the highlight package after the match is great! I posted too soon.

The biggest thing I picked up with this is how "safe" most of the brawling they did was compared to what you see today. And it still worked just as well as dudes concussing themselves for money in getting over the violence.

Wow, crowds were already "woo'ing" figure-4s in 96. Who knew?
I don't see myself watching this one multiple times, but it's kind of fun in the right mood. Hollinger is right about how safe they play it, considering how violent the match is. They're all selling the exhaustion and beatdowns, and both teams are very charismatic.
I've always enjoyed PE's entrances, and they cut a nice promo at the end. Loss is right that the highlight vid kicks ass.

The safety comes from the weapons used. They were doing the old fashioned digging into your opponents forehead bit which is violent and safe. Baked goods were flying, which will never get anyone hurt. The crowd loves this stuff. Wrestling companies never mentioned each other, which even though New Jack's comments made no sense they come off as being cool and edgy. I wished they would have shown the ring collapsing indecent in Florida during the highlight package.
