Black Ninja then bails the ring while Invader III helps Invader as he rolls out of the ring, holding his face and wiping his eyes.

Match Thoughts: Same warning as I gave for the Sting "yellow mist" incident, the mist shot is mostly missed by the camera (it wasn't the big cloud of mist he usually does) but it was clear what he did and this is the earliest match I have seen him use the Poison Mist. Anyway, this match was more of a set-up to continue Black Ninja's feud with the Invaders, as he had taken the belt off one and had battled the other off and on during his stint in WWC. But it went over well, going for the mask is a popular heel tactic and the mist added a new element to the feud. Score: 6.0
