John Pollock & Wai Ting review WCW Starrcade 1997 featuring Hollywood Hogan vs. Sting in one of the most anticipated and disappointing matches in WCW history.
They discuss Nick Patrick’s not-so-fast count that totally screwed up the finish of the main event, Bret Hart’s fumbled arrival in WCW, Buff Bagwell vs. Lex Luger in one of the most boring matches we’ve seen in a long time, Eddie Guerrero vs. Dean Malenko and more.
Espresso Executive Producer Justin Killian sends us a message to discuss his selection.
