Just the post-match, with Sting getting heat back after losing. Man, what an awful PPV run the one-time future of the company has had in '91--lost to Muta, ate the fall against the Steiners, lost to Nikita. Replay conclusively shows that Koloff touched the fourth corner as he was being Stinger Splashed.

All we see live of this one is Sting crotching Nikita with the chain not once but twice. I guess the Russian chain match was supposed to be protected for Nikita (as in, he was never to lose one under any circumstances whatsoever), but if that was the case, then why not have a cage match or some other type of bout that Sting could win? If Dusty was keeping Luger a face and needed to build Nikita for a World title challenge, then I'd have no problem with this finish, especially since it was so close, but under these circumstances it's a real head scratcher.

 

I wonder what plans there were for Nikita after this, if any. Maybe a heel/heel feud with Luger, but then why turn Luger in the first place?

It's funny that they are dragging each other all over the ring when the chain looks so long. It looks like if they just knocked out the other guy in the middle area of the ring they could probably reach all 4 corners with a minimum of fuss. That is kind of what AEW did with their strap match. Although having to drag the guy around the ring is a nice visual. If they really wanted a chain match on this card, they could hame made this a regular match and let Sting win, and they could have made the Yellow Dog match a dog collar match.
