(the worst WCW main event I've ever seen)

A note on Uncensored 1996 from David Gaworecki:
Details- There are no details. I almost cried after thinking about the booking for this event. The Doomsday cage match was interesting, but quite possibly the worst match I have ever seen. I have a question. Do you remember that Flair and Anderson were eliminated, but they came back and still fought? What happened to Meng and The Barbarian after they were eliminated, did they just forget to come back? Somebody should have informed Eric Bischoff that a Chicago Street Fight does not last 30 minutes. However, the only bright spot on the card was the Lord Steven Regal/Belfast Bruiser match. I was in pain just watching those two slap each other.
