This threatens to go off the rails when the match gets overshadowed by the arrival of Flair, Liz, and Woman to the "VIP area," but the production recovers to re-focus on the two athletes in the ring. Quick sprint in that classic Nitro style, but a good one with a few near-falls that had me biting.

Liger brought out his black suit for this appearance. This was better than the Nitro debut match. Flair is doing a weird gimmick now where he is eating in a fine area with nice table settings while the match is going on. Malenko and Liger mesh well together but never had a classic match against each other. This really didn't have the time to be that but felt more energetic and inspired compared to their previous efforts. **1/2

A classic match type: Two great wrestlers have a very good, short match on Nitro while the commentary is distracted by unrelated angles. Ric coming out to live the high life on Savage's money was funny though. Good match especially toward the end, the top rope gutbuster looked great.
