Oh baby! It’s finally time for one of the most memorable, most iconic moments in wrestling history. When wrestling fans are asked to name the greatest matches of all time, certain names are guaranteed to come up. Flair, Hart, Michaels, and of course Sumo Monster Trucks of WCW Halloween Havoc 1995.
This pay-per-view event took place on October 29, 1995 (with the Monster Truck angle taped the night before) from the Joe Louis Arena and Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan in front of 13,000 fans. The night builds up for Machine vs Machine and Man vs Man. Hulk Hogan and the Giant will face off in their own monster trucks on the roof of Cobo Hall. Then these two titans will collide over the WCW World heavyweight title. The ending to this match is one of the most absurd moments in pro wrestling history and we have been waiting to discuss this event.
In other action, we debate the overall story lines for the other members of the Dungeon of Doom. The IV Horsemen ride again. Plus some wrestlers make their one and only appearances in this series.
All of this and your co hosts usual tangents about their lives. Hear all about Matty Treats’s horrifying FaceTime call. Experience the terror of Kevin’s week long sickness. Join our debate over WCW’s young talent.
