Sting and Luger are fired up here early on. Booker catches Sting with an awesome scissors kick to break up a scorpion attempt on Stevie Ray and just looks really good in general in this match. A tag title change also.

 

Still, in spite of the hot shotting, RAW won the night 2.9 to 2.7.

They had a better match a few days before on Saturday Night. Harlem Heat were a rather shitty team, and apart from the great ax kick at the beginning, this is typical plodding and boring HH work. Luger's angle made the segment interesting. Nitro was really stacking up the cards like crazy at this point, I'm surprised Raw won this one.

Hey, let's have a long tag title match and have STEVIE RAY work 90% of it for his team. He's back to being as oafish as ever after looking like there was some vague improvement going on earlier. Another classic Lex/Sting finish, as Jimmy Hart makes his presence felt at ringside again despite Luger not wanting him there, and Lex doesn't pass up on the opportunity to use a roll of silver dollars to net the tag titles.

Good match. I really liked Luger's double clothesline comeback, leading to Sting's hot tag, hitting tons of Stinger splashes and then the scissor kick when he tries to lock in the Scorpion Death Lock. Awesome sequence. Then we get a Sting FIP until Luger CHEATS to win. Sting is unhappy but Luger is super enthusiastic in his celebration. Sting/Luger continues to be pretty good pro wrestling soap opera.
