I always loved the lower tier WCW shows because they were taped in studio (at Disney or Universal Studios) and had a very different feel than the larger arena shows like Nitro and Thunder. They typically featured lower card guys with the occasional mid-carder main eventing an episode of Worldwide. The main event of the episode where Ultimo Dragon and The Macho Man faced off was Scott Norton vs. Lex Luger.
This particular episode of Worldwide was taped at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida and saw Macho Man and Ultimo Dragon wrestle for just under three minutes. Still, in those three minutes they told a cohesive story that well... is sometimes lacking in today's wrestling world.
I wish I could say it was a barn burner or a twenty minute classic, but it wasn't. Instead, we got to see to of the greats for just a couple of minutes on a fourth rate show during WCW's prime. I guess, if there is anything to blame WCW for its not giving us more matches like this and instead letting Hulk Hogan babble on for way too long on Nitro.
Check the match out for youself and see what you think.
