This show always stood out to me for all the ways they could have done better with it.  The card is fine, I guess.  But there's no reason why Abdullah and Colon, a huge feud in Puerto Rico, got less than five minutes.  Also no reason why the the tag title match got less than 15 minutes, in fact, it didn't even get as much time to get over as the Slater/Orton tag match - which really had no grudge to settle anyway.  And Flair vs Race should have gone over a half hour, like basically every house match they had for the prior four years did.  No reason it was so short, unless CCTV was too expensive.

McGhee, Weaver, Rufus and Bugsy could have easliy been left off and no one would have worried.


My biggest problem with the Abby vs Colon  match s there was no education to the fans who didnt already know about the rivalry as to why they should care. I would love to have seen some Puerto Rico clips hyping it up but no such luck.


I agree the tag title match should have had much more time. It also would have been fine with a regular official. Mosca added nothing.
