How does Ventura not know who Liger is? Don't you remember Superbrawl II? Jushin Thunder Liger versus Flyin' Brian Pillman. What an awesome match -that- was. Venture and a very green JR were commentating.
Not a bad PPV, gotta learn the right formula for SE shows though! I learned it in TEW2004, 'Angle', Match, 'Angle' 'Interview', Match, 'Angle', Match and so on. For every match you have, you need to have at least one angle to appease the crowd.
Even though Cruisers don't fare well in this style, I always considered WCW to be more of a traditional style of promotion. Somehow I feel it would fit your booking style more, even if you couldn't use Juventud and the like in their high-flying matches.
Now.. Joe over JBL? Bah! Joe will tank, and you'll find yourself crawling back to JBL. Though, dunno how Joe would dominate JBL .. JBL weighs more then Joe and is 5 inches taller. It's a game, oh well.
Goldberg over 'Tista? Aww.
'Least Orton went over.
I'm going for a an Invasion type angle and I don't wanna do it WWE style where all the outsiders are buried. The major reason the nWo invasion worked so well is because they were put over big on arrival
I knew I was gonna get punished for not enough angles but hey it's a PPV I had all those matches booked in aadvance.
As for Ventura not remembering Liger, Ummmm. It was in '92 and I know it was a legendary match that's 13 years ago and he's been a Governor and ran for president since then

Sting: Suprise, Suprise the Stinger is here, victorious! Was there any doubt I would bury The Undertaker?

Savage: I can tell you brother DDP is not an easy guy to beat, personally I think the kid got lucky last night!
Ventura: I'm sure he did get lucky last night Macho Man, Just not in the ring (laughs)

That 3 count last night was fast and you both know it! I knew there was a reason you hired that slime bag Earl Hebner, hell Taker even warned me. Well I've only got one choice left, I want my rematch and I want it now!
(Turner comes out)
Tuner: I'll be happy to oblige! You lose and that's it though Batista, no title shot for a year. I can't have you hogging the main event scene getting beaten every night!
