This is when it happened. WCW had been laying the groundwork for quite some time, but this is where the turnaround really started. Obviously, Hogan took it to a different level a few weeks later. But this was quite the angle, and I think everyone expected some type of angle to advance things on that show, but Bischoff taking that bump was a shocker. Things are getting crazy, what's going to happen now?

Great angle and a real ramp up in intensity in an eye-opening way. This storyline was a sort of vague, slow burning thing each week and this immediately kicked it up to another level. Everything is all very expected in terms of drawing out the angle -- Bischoff can't tell them who they're facing, we have to wait until Nitro -- but they're not taking it and Hall blasts Bischoff and Nash puts him through a table. It's sort of an old, negative talking point that WCW used PPVs to build to Nitro, but this sure makes me want to tune in to Nitro to see the aftermath.

A feeling of very real unease permeates the aftermath. They act like they just saw a tornado hit. Tony leaving to check on Bischoff and forcing Dusty to fill over a minute, lengthy silence after Dusty accidentally throws to Dave Penzer and then Michael Buffer, Luger stopping his entrance to check on Bischoff after many months of being portrayed as a self-centered jerk who loved entrances, all very effective moments.
