WCW Bash at the Beach 1994

1) Johnny B. Badd vs. Steven Regal – 4
2) Dustin Rhodes & Arn Anderson vs. Terry Funk & Bunkhouse Buck – 3
3) Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat vs. Steve Austin - 3
4) Cactus Jack & Kevin Sullivan vs. Paul Orndorff & Paul Roma - 2
5) Hulk Hogan vs. Ric Flair – 5

This was not a good show by any stretch of the imagination. Everything on this show was half-assed, even the main event, which everyone and their brother wanted to see. Match of the night honors, if you want to call it that, goes to the TV title match. Yes, Hogan and Flair got a better rating, but the quality of a Regal match is usually very good. Arn Anderson made a heel turn on Dustin Rhodes and joined with Terry Funk in a rather shocking conclusion to a horrendous tag match. Steamboat and Austin was really bad. Actually, I think it was Steamboat’s last match on a WCW pay-per-view, and after a terrible outing like the one here, I’d leave the company as well. Here’s another thing, not even good ol’ Mick Foley (Cactus Jack) could save the tag title match. Hey, WCW, here’s a hint: when the fans start doing “the wave” during on of your title matches, it’s time to re-think your in ring product. Hogan vs. Flair was so miserable that I feel asleep during it. If you want to see it, buy the Hulk Still Rules DVD. The event must be avoided at all costs and can be described in one word … abysmal.
