WCW Title Match: Hollywood Hogan vs. Sting- Huge rematch from last night at Starrcade. This match has been building up for a year and a half but they blow their load on a rematch on the next night? Was way too soon because they could have made a lot of money on a rematch on a PPV. No finish to the match because the show ends? Weak. essay assistance
