Yokozuna would then hit a legdrop on Razor as he and Owen continue the attack on Razor. The Kid would look to make the save but Yokozuna is just too much for him and he suffers a legdrop. Ahmed Johnson then hits the ring and body slams Yokozuna. The British Bulldog then hits the ring looking for a sneak attack but Ahmed turns around just in time and we have a stare down between the two as we go off the air.
My Take: C
This was another good show as we are on the road to Survior Series. The good things about this show was that Jim Cornette made sense about Smith getting screwed and looked over. It seems like we could be getting a rematch or triple threat match for the title soon. Razor and Owen put on a great match for the IC Title until it was ruined by Yokozuna which I saw no point in I guess they are just trying to protect Owen. It also seems like Savio, Goldust, the tag team division are just floundering right now and that’s sad to say since Goldust just got here.
