Rick & Scott Steiner [USA] v. Miguel Perez, Jr. & Ricky Santana [Puerto Rico] (We never actually see the match, as we get word from Williams and Gordy, that they were injured in a car accident. It's perfectly obvious from listening to them though, that Gordy & Williams had attacked and injured the Mexican team themselves to insure that the Steiner Brothers would have to face Williams and Gordy in the second round.) 5. Barry Windham & Dustin Rhodes [USA] v. Arn Anderson & Bobby Eaton [USA] (GOOD MATCH) 6. The Freebirds [USA] v. El Texano & Silver King [Mexico] 7. Jushin Liger & Brian Pillman [Japan/USA] v.

WCW World Champ Hulk Hogan (Hogan had recently defeated Flair at the Bash at the Beach PPV for the World Title) Note: With Hulk Hogan having recently joined WCW and winning the WCW World Title in his very first match, WCW has officially gone down the tubes. With the addition of Hogan, came a change in booking where Hogan insisted on reforming WCW into the WWF of 1985, with the invention of the Dungeon of Doom, the inability of ANY wrestler to defeat him and other ridiculous angles that were basically designed to make Hogan into the same undefeated superstar that he was 10 years earlier. The results unfortunately turned WCW (as well as Hogan's legacy) into a mockery of what it once was just a few short years (or even months for that matter) earlier.
