(The Show Begins...)
Big Van Vader is interviewed backstage by Ox Baker, he hypes an upcoming singles match against Mark Callous and promises to get revenge against Callous for causing him to lose the TV title to Rude. (D+)

Paul Heyman is interviewed backstage by Jim Ross, he hypes his client One Man Gang to the moon (D+)
Jim Ross is learning to show more charisma. One Man Gang is developing better performance skills.
Big Van Vader vs. Mark Callous
In a bout that had solid in-ring action and average heat, Big Van Vader defeated Mark Callous in 12:59 by pinfall with a Power Bomb. (C-)
Doctor Claw did some good work at ringside. Mark Callous is improving in Flying skills.
Pegasus Kid vs. Dean Malenko
In a match that had some good action and average heat, Pegasus Kid defeated Dean Malenko in 19:47 by pinfall with a Dragon Suplex. (C-)
The match needed to be a lot shorter given who was involved.
Final Rating: C-
Two midcarders should not be closing the show with a 20 minute match, but it was still a C-, so I'm going to just not care about for now.
