WrestleCrap writer Art O'Donnell criticised the event as a "financial blunder" and said that WCW held "a yearly pay-per-view at a biker rally with zero live gate just because Eric [Bischoff] loves motorcycles".
Since 2001, WWE (through its subsidiary WCW, Inc.) owns the rights to the event. In 2015, All WCW pay-per-views were made available on the WWE Network.
Madusa defeated Bull Nakano; both women had their shoulders down, but Madusa lifted her right shoulder off the canvas before the referee reached the three-count. Due to a pre-match stipulation, Madusa was allowed to destroy Nakano's Japanese motorcycle with a sledgehammer. In the main event Hollywood Hogan pinned The Giant after hitting him with the title belt while the referee was distracted from an interfering Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. After the match, The Booty Man came to the ring with an nWo T-shirt on and a birthday gift for Hogan; Hogan acted as if Booty Man was going to join the group, but turned on him and beat him down with Hall and Nash. Hogan then spray-painted “nWo” on the front of the WCW World Heavyweight Championship belt.
