very fun show. The battle royale was great fun for old-time chikara fans. Colin and Jimmy took bad bumps in the main event, after a tornado DDT off the apron onto the hard gym floor.
Actually, Luger won it on Monday Nitro, and that episode attained the largest TV wrestling audience of the Monday Night wars at the time with a 6.0 I believe, sometime in 1997. Luger lost the belt back to Hogan 6 days later at Hog/Road wild.
