Oh and Bill Watts is sending the old title belt to a Japanese prince who contacted him online about an investment opportunity... just... Never-mind, Bill Watts World is an interesting place. commonly disrespected for being boring, but for our money, we found ourselves a real gem of a B-show PPV in this one! Including a hell of an opener and a downright fantastic heavyweight title match between Sting and Big Van Vader!
