Match Thoughts: I am glad I am done with 1989, as I am not really a big fan of these faction squash matches. The J-Tex Connection doesn't have much of a... connection, the stable just feels thrown together and most of the time the crowd isn't really buying it. To add to that, the crowd still kinda likes Muta, and Muta doesn't really act like he belongs in the group. The offensive itself was also really uninspired, lots of kicks and tagging out and more kicks. I had forgotten at the age of six that Muta's WCW run ended on such a dull note as he was only around another two months or so after this event. Score: 3.0
