TAPE 159

Quality: EX (Master) Convert)

Length: 3.5 hrs (2 DVD)

HOG WILD '96 - 8/10/96 (PPV Version; Imagine the thought process behind this PPV - "Hey guys, let's have a PPV in the middle of a biker rally so we can get a huge crowd of people who know nothing about wrestling to come to our show and rev their bikes the whole time." Yeah, brilliant. I've got a master convert so VQ is EX.)
Diamond Dallas Page vs Renegade (Countdown show) Ultimo Dragon vs Rey Misterio Jr Ice Train vs Scott Norton Bull Nakano vs Madusa (Loser gets motorcyle trashed; Gee, who do you think will win? The Japanese wrestler riding the Suzuki or the American riding the Harley - remember, this match is held in the middle of a Harley-Davidson rally.) Dean Malenko vs Chris Benoit (Perfect example of a **** match that is absolutely ruined by the commentary. Bobby Heenan, Tony Schiavone, and Dusty are completely horrible throughout this show, but this match is the worst example. There's great action in the ring for 25+ minutes, but you'd never know it by listening to these guys. WCW, you need to hire some guys who know something about announcing - like Jesse Ventura.) Harlem Heat vs Rick & Scott Steiner Eddy Guerrero vs Ric Flair Kevin Nash & Scott Hall vs Sting & Lex Luger (Nick Patrick's heel turn) Hulk Hogan vs The Giant (Hogan wins WCW title)
