[3.0] "I prefer wrestling to brawling, so I felt this card was pretty bad. A two ring battle royale is a worse idea than a regular one. The War Games match was a brawl, also. Luger's and Flair's match held some decent spots. The rest of the card was pretty much what I said, more brawling than wrestling. It was just a pointless card."

[9.0] "As many have stated, the second half of the show is much better than the first, though there's nothing offensive in the first half either. The last four matches, however, make this one of the must-see events of the era, including another classic from Flair and Terry Funk (Flair was, I think, never better than he was in 1989, with his feuds against Funk and Ricky Steamboat producing some of his all-time best work). There's also a fantastic War Games match, a great Steamboat-Luger encounter over the US Title, and a fine showing for Sting and Muta. Absolutely worth seeking out."

[10.0] "The event has one of the better second half of all time. And it's unbelievable how bad is the first half, even if the Tuxedo match, which is an horrible stipulation, is entertaining at least to get it watchable. The opening Battle Royale has a confusing way to win, with one ring emptied before the other. From the second tag team match everything is solid, Ric Flair vs Funk is a memorable match. It's one of the must see events of all time."

[9.0] "A very strong event for the most part, the final two matches are supremely excellent and Steamboat/Luger delivers at a very high level, as does surprisingly Pillman/Irwin. I thought the Spivey/Sid tag was pretty freaking awful but that's the only thing I can really say, even the manager match is entertaining. Highly recommended show."

[9.0] "Where to begin? This PPV was without doubt, one of the greatest of all time, or at least the second half of the show was because the first half fucking sucked. Everything from Sting vs. Muta onwards was so fucking great though it honestly didn't matter about the horrible first half of the show. Sting vs. Muta was great, Luger/Steamboat was great, Wargames was great and of course Funk vs. Flair was a fantastic main event. The show was over at the end of the main event either, Muta and Sting came out and we had a four way brawl to close the show, it was an amazing PPV"
