Match Thoughts: This was just a little tune-up before Muta's big match against Sting the following week. Sting and Gilbert even came down to ringside to get a closer look. Muta was giving up some offense at this point but obviously not much, it was a pretty short match. It had a lot of squash-like qualities but not a completely dominating match that I'd have perferred in a two minute match. Score: 4.5
