My Take: D
I don't know if it was because I did this review late at time after watching Smackdown or what but this show was horrible. This is supposed to be the go home show for SuperBrawl 3 and nothing on the card had me excited for the PPV. The SuperBrawl card itself is not really that good outside of Barry Windham vs The Great Muta for the NWA World Championship. The only match worth watching from this show is the Lumberjack Match.
