Been going back and rewatching some old WCW PPVs that I missed when I was in college.  This one slipped under the radar for me, never had a chance to find it on video after the show.
I gotta say, it’s a pretty enjoyable watch.  There’s some bullshit in there, and I remember reading about Dusty being back as the booker and a lot of complaints, but man it’s a fun show.
I’m up to the main event.  Haven’t finished Flair/Fujinami yet, but -
Eaton wins his first singles title with a W over Arn.
Doom has a cage match.
Really good Pillman/Windham match.
Sid does a quick job on the way out.
Really good, quick Steiners vs Luger and Sting match.
Zaniness with Nash as Oz and Scott Hall basically doing the Razor gimmick with DDP.
Dustin Rhodes had a good match over Terry Taylor.  
Nikita back as a heel, but no explanation (would have been cool to see some interaction with Dusty on this, dropped the ball).
Search this show out if you haven’t seen it.

I just remember that at the time Luger/Sting vs. Steiners was a really exciting match that everyone was looking forward to, and it delivered. SLL 4 guys were super over babyfaces. It might have been voted MOTY.

I actually just watched this last week. This was one of my favorite shows as a kid, my aunt used order all the PPVs and would tape them for me and I watched the hell out of this one back in the day. The Sting/Luger vs Steiners match was my favorite, and the video before is classic shit.

Are you watching the tape version or the WWE Network version? The version on the Network is the full PPV version and has 5 matches that aren't on the tape. Don't get me wrong, you're better without them. They include Oz vs Tim Parker and Big Josh vs Black Bart, horrible stuff, although Oz is funny is a so bad it's good way. The Gigante vs Vicious stretcher man is just a joke with Vicious refusing to do the job, and Gigante being his rotten self. The rest of the card is very good. The Steiners vs Sting/Luger is an all-time classic. Flair vs Fujinami is no good, though. The crowd had no idea who Fujinami was, and the angle that played out in Japan with Fujinami winning the NWA title, but not the WCW title, was completely ignored in the US.

EDIT: If you saw Taylor vs Rhodes, then you have the full version.

The great thing about the Steiners vs Luger/Sting match is that everyone got their shit in. Total selling by all four guys. Everyone had a chance to shine. Super fun match.

Blazer-

Nikita returned at Wrestle War and turned heel. He was presenting Lex Luger a new U.S. title belt and whacked Luger over the head with it to set up a new feud. Dusty, who was on commentary, sold it well.

IIRC Nikita tried to attack Luger at Superbrawl but accidentally hit Sting, this setting up a new feud. It was well done. But I think Nikita was gone again shortly after that.

The first part is true but Nikita stuck around until Halloween Havoc 1992. He was injured by Vader in storyline and never wrestled in a major company after that.

Heenan - Ok, that’s coming back to me vaguely. I never saw the full Wrestle War show, but I vaguely recall a post show press conference with Nikita interfering.

Kriss - yep, full PPV. I didn’t mind the Oz stuff, and Big Josh was fine. Overall a decent show. The main event was flat, but I thought the finish was pretty ingenious with the two refs involved.


Next dvd to knock out - I’ve got Halloween Havoc 1990 or Capitol Combat 90.

Nikita might of been legit hurt by Vader in that match. I've heard legit from some, worked injury by others. I do know the reason Nikita didn't wrestle again was because he was collecting his Lloyds of London's insurance policy, but most of those Minnesota guys were thought to of been scamming Lloyds - Hennig, & RW Animal. Rude and Nikita at least stopped wrestling.

Nikita Koloff actually had separate WCW runs in 1991 and 1992. Nikita stepped away from WCW in the late summer of 1991 as his feud with Sting was running its course. Nikita then came back in March of 1992, having turned babyface minus an accompanying angle. He saved Sting from the Dangerous Alliance and I believe the explanation was Nikita had gained respect for Sting during their feud the previous year. Nikita stuck around through October, then retired and unlike so many wrestlers actually stayed retired.

I always heard that during the Monday Night Wars, Nikita tried to come back but no one wanted him.

WCW's version of the story was that Fujinami claimed to be the rightful "WCW" champion because the Japanese supposedly didn't understand that the WCW over the top DQ rule was in effect in the first match. So the match was to determine the undisputed "WCW" World champion. The poster said something like Ric Flair: WCW World Champion? vs Tatsumi Fujinami: WCW World Champion?
