My Take: C
I wouldn’t personally say that this was a great show but it also wasn’t a bad show. The show took place in Canada and you would think that they would put on a great show. The only matches I cared about was the title matches. The card was just terrible. I also didn’t see the point in awarding Dean Douglas the Intercontinental Championship after Michaels relinquished it due to injury just for him to drop it immediately to Razor Ramon. I’m not sure what they are doing with The Kid and can Diesel please drop the title already his reign has been boring and should’ve ending a long time ago.
