Looking up and down this card it is unfortunately clear of the bad shape this company was in near the end. Fact is looking at some of the stipulations and seeing that they have matches titled "Judy Bagwell on a Forklift" and "Rip off the Clothes" it is easy to see how much the company had fallen. At one point WCW was the number one company in the world but that was for a very short time for a variety of reasons and many people have documented such moments. However, I think that this show is the embodiment of bad booking and the lacking of planning that this company actually had in mind at this point.
Putting all of these things aside and focusing on the one match that this show is known for and that is the Triple Threat match between Kevin Nash, Goldberg, and Scott Steiner. For those of you that may not be aware of what took place at this event was when Goldberg pulled away from the jackknife and walked out of the match with Vince Russo fuming. This moment was suppose to be taken as a shoot and that Goldberg didn't want to play ball, but in reality nobody cared as the moment was just meant to pop the ratings instead of having an actual plan.
Overall this card is absolutely unlike anything that WCW had seen, because at past events we had seen a tremendous undercard and a lackluster main event. However, looking at this show we saw a lackluster undercard and solid main event; which though is a great thing it is harder to call a PPV good if it only has one match worth watching. This show is one that I would point to as a one match show with Booker, T and Jeff Jarrett as the only good match; don't get me wrong the opening match was good but at this point both teams were unproven.
