Your winner: Great Muta

Match Thoughts: This match of course was part of a bigger storyline, but it was a relatively clean win for Muta to avenge an earlier attack by The Demon against Muta and Vampiro. The easier WCW schedule was good for Mutoh, as he was moving around pretty well and looked better physically then he did in late 1999 when he was doing a more rigorous schedule. A fun little TV match, but nothing more then that. Score: 5.0
