I'm not going to go overboard praising this or anything, but this is a way better match than you would expect it to be. Good heat and intensity, nice brawling at the beginning, and Booker T is starting to show himself as a guy who may be better than he seems. The Males win the tag titles in a surprise finish, considering Harlem Heat just regained them the night before.

AMERICAN MALES. AMERICAN MALES. AMERICAN MALES. Between this and Mr. Wonderful truly this was a golden age in WCW theme music. I was more intrigued by Razor vs. Kid than the Males at the time, so I never knew until just now that there was an originally scheduled match with the Bluebloods and an impromptu challenge by Harlem Heat. Shockingly good action--Booker looks *great*, Riggs looks really good, Bagwell pulls his weight, and even Stevie freaking Ray works a few nice brick-wall spots. Shock title change follows--the WCW Tag Titles were soon to slide into irrelevance as Bischoff was never big on tag wrestling, to the company's detriment, but this was a good call that was yet another reminder that Nitro had a blink-or-you'll-miss-it atmosphere that Raw couldn't yet touch.
