OSR: WCW Bash at the Beach 2000 Review

Chris Kanyon vs. Booker T

Kanyon makes his way to the ring first, mimicking DDP. He is soon enough followed by Booker T, who receives a good reaction. The match gets underway with Booker in control of the match. Soon enough, Kanyon is able to regain some momentum. It is then revealed that Kanyon has a brick inside his book, which he is using to get leverage. After a near finish, Jeff Jarrett enters and nails Booker with the guitar. This allows Kanyon to nail him with the “Kanyon Cutter” to pick up the win in an average match.

Winner: Chris Kanyon

Match Rating: 2.5 out of 5.0 Stars

WCW United States Championship: Scott Steiner (c) (w/ Midajah) vs. Mike Awesome

Both men make their way to the ring, with the action soon getting underway. It quickly spills outside of the ring and into the crowd but it doesn’t last long. Steiner is pretty dominant, using a variety of power moves to keep Awesome down. The match soon spills outside of the ring again, and Awesome is able to gain some momentum. Ernest Miller makes an appearance at ringside as Steiner regains the momentum. He threatens to strip him of the title if he applies the Steiner Recliner. Nonetheless, Steiner does so and is disqualified as a result. Miller then takes off with the title to end this ever so slightly rubbish match.

Winner: Mike Awesome

Match Rating: 1.0 out of 5.0 Stars

Graveyard Match: The Demon vs. Vampiro

We go to the graveyard with The Demon searching for Vampiro, as Asya gingerly holds back with the referee. Vampiro soon emerges dropping from a tree. This is a really poorly thought out match nonetheless. Whilst it suits Vampiro’s character, the lighting makes it near impossible to establish what is actually going on. Vampiro continually uses Asya to gain leverage, which includes brawling in a lake and traumatizing her. A novel concept which actually turned out to be a complete mess. Eventually, Vampiro makes it back to the arena to win this “match”.

Winner: Vampiro

Match Rating: 0.5 out of 5.0 Stars

Shane Douglas vs. Buff Bagwell

Both men make their way to the ring, with Douglas quickly assuming control of the match. Douglas plays this very well as he attempts to exploit the previous neck injury of Bagwell. As this continues, Torrie Wilson makes her way to the ring to provide a distraction. This allows Bagwell to regain some momentum and ground Douglas. After Torrie and Buff make out a little bit, Torrie turns on Bagwell but Douglas is still not able to get the win at this stage. Bagwell makes a comeback, but a distraction from Torrie allows Douglas to ultimately pick up the win in a very mediocre match.

Winner: Shane Douglas

Match Rating: 1.0 out of 5.0 Stars
