The first match was a tournament final for the vacant WCW Cruiserweight Championship between The Artist Formerly Known as Prince Iaukea and Lash LeRoux. After a back and forth match, Artist's valet Paisley interfered in the match by protecting Artist from a diving hurricanrana by LeRoux, which allowed Artist to finish LeRoux with a diving DDT to win the Cruiserweight Championship.
The second match was a hardcore match between Bam Bam Bigelow and Brian Knobbs for the WCW Hardcore Championship. As the match progressed, Fit Finlay interfered in the match to help Knobbs. Bigelow and Knobbs brawled with each other through the crowd. Knobbs brought a table inside the ring but Bigelow drove him into the table and followed with a Greetings From Asbury Park. Bigelow climbed up the top rope for a high-flying move but Knobbs hit him with a trashcan lid shot to win the Hardcore Championship.
Next was a handicap match between Norman Smiley and 3 Count (Evan Karagias, Shannon Moore, and Shane Helms). Smiley's ribs were injured, which allowed 3 Count to take advantage. The two sides exchanged dance moves until Smiley locked in the Norman Conquest on Moore. Helms made the save and superkicked Smiley. Helms and Karagias delivered frog splashes on Smiley, thus allowing Moore to gain momentum and apply the Boston crab to make Smiley tap out.
Next was a Leather Jacket on a Pole match between Tank Abbott and Big Al. The way to win the match was to retrieve the leather jacket by climbing the pole. Abbott dominated the match and ultimately won the match by retrieving the jacket.
In the sixth match, Booker took on Big T. Both men exchanged moves until Booker began gaining momentum with a Book End and a missile dropkick to Big T until the lights went out. An unknown man distracted Booker, allowing Big T to deliver a Pearl River Plunge to win the match.
The Mamalukes (Big Vito and Johnny the Bull) defended the WCW World Tag Team Championship against David Flair and Crowbar in a Sicilian Stretcher match, where it was stipulated that both members of a team must be taped to the stretcher to get eliminated. Disco Inferno showed up at the commentary table. Daffney interfered in the match in the earlier portion of the match and performed a Hurricanrana on Johnny. Mamalukes managed to gain advantage by delivering an aided powerbomb to Flair and taping him on the stretcher to eliminate him. Flair was then taken backstage and Crowbar was left alone to fight the match. Disco also began interfering along with Mamalukes and the trio triple teamed Crowbar. Vito placed Crowbar on a table at ringside and delivered a splash onto Crowbar through the table. Mamalukes taped Crowbar on the stretcher and took him backstage to win the match and retain their titles.
Ric Flair and Terry Funk competed in a Texas Death match. Funk scored the first pinfall by suplexing Flair on the floor and Flair survived the referee's 10 count. Flair then made Funk submit to the figure four leglock, making Funk vulnerable for the 10 count but he survived it. After back and forth action, Flair performed a Piledriver on the floor followed by another piledriver on the exposed concrete to pin him but Flair managed to survive the 10 count. Funk then placed a table inside the ring and put Flair on it. He climbed the top rope and tried to perform a Moonsault but Flair pushed him off and Funk fell down through the table. Flair then pinned Funk and Funk became unconscious, thus failing to answer the referee's 10 count and Flair won the match.
The final match on the undercard featured Hulk Hogan taking on Lex Luger. Back and forth action took place between the two men until Elizabeth interfered on Luger's behalf by attacking Hogan with a baseball bat. Jimmy Hart came to the ringside to take the bat away from Elizabeth and prevent her from interfering. Hogan attacked Luger with a cast on his arm and delivered a Leg Drop to win the match.
