Hey, as promised in the recent WCW Saturday Night rant, here’s a long overdue redo of one of WCW’s all time great PPV shows. Of course, immediately after this show ended, it was hardly the quality of the PPV that became the talk of the wrestling world.

–WCW Champion Hulk Hogan shows up in Asheville, North Carolina on the Harley Davidson motorcycle he received at Bash at the Beach and is surrounded by his fans. Gene Okerlund interviews him, with Hogan hyping his journey through North Carolina, painting the Dungeon of Doom as anti-American. This offends the Giant as he takes a Dungeon of Doom monster truck and runs over Hogan’s motorcycle, forcing Hogan and his fans to flee. Hogan hilariously pounds on the side of the truck like a kid having a tantrum as the Giant laughs.
–Eric Bischoff and Dusty Rhodes are doing commentary and they are live from Asheville, North Carolina. They treat the destruction of Hogan’s motorcycle as a national tragedy.
–Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan resume their usual commentary duties and they are taped from Atlanta, Georgia. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, this taping took place on August 21.
