Really great segment setting up the War Games main event at Fall Brawl. This is played so perfectly -- Sting and Luger teaming with Flair and Arn, when they all have a common enemy, all have been screwed over, is just great. Add in the years of feuds these guys have had and that's what makes it work. The unlikely teaming thing kinda died off as the NWO angle progressed, which is a shame, as it was one of my favorite aspects of the whole thing.

Great segment. Arn is the standout, but Sting holds up his end pretty well. McMichaels was actually pretty damn good too. I agree with Loss, the unlikely teaming was a great touch and made the whole nWo angle even better, and it's too bad it got forgotten.

 

And damn, Woman in those mini-shorts was smoking at this time.

Terrific segment as everyone has said--everyone is fantastic here. Well, Benoit's just sort of there, but he does his job well enough. Arn is spectacular, and it's too bad that the WCW team didn't really seem to do anything monumental in the match itself after the fire-and-brimstone-inspired promo we got here.

Outstanding segment, for all the great WCW segments recently this one is right up there. Arn's promo was just amazing, and the close-ups on Flair's face were great, he looks skeptical, he doesn't *like* the idea, but you can see he knows it's the right call. Both Sting and Luger held up their end on the promos too. This really feels like a huge alliance and has me looking forward to War Games.
