The show was very well received by critics and wrestling fans alike, particularly the Juventud Guerrera vs Blitzkrieg opening match; it is also considered by many wrestling fans and critics as the last well received pay-per-view that WCW produced.[1] In addition, this is the first pay-per-view event to feature the new WCW logo after the previous one was retired two weeks before.

StorylinesEdit

The event involved wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains or heroes in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.[2]
