The Haunted House Show: WCW Halloween Havoc 1993

When an idea works, the best thing to do is use the idea again. That’s right, it’s time to Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal once more for WCW Halloween Havoc 1993!

This pay-per-view event aired October 24, 1993 from the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana in front of 6000 fans. Confusion reigns in WCW. Big Van Vader is the champion, but WCW has another world title at this time. The Educator breaks down the behind the scenes history of the WCW International World title. Who is the franchise of WCW? Sting and Sid will battle it out for that honor. WCW’s history of bad match endings is apparent and our anger grows over the course of this show.

As always we break down the major events in our lives since last episode. Free computer equipment. Halloween costumes. Matty Treats begins his slow descent into madness with Christmas music. What did Kevin eat for dinner? Which match will be the Hot Tag of the week?

WCW Halloween Havoc 1993 matches include:

  • Ice Train, Charlie Norris and the Shockmaster vs the Equalizer and Harlem Heat.
  • Paul Orndorff (with the Assassin) vs Ricky “the Dragon” Steamboat.
  • Lord Steven Regal (TV champion) (with Sir William) vs Davey Boy Smith.
  • Dustin Rhodes (United States champion) vs Steve Austin.
  • The Nasty Boys (with Missy Hyatt) vs Marcus Alexander Bagwell and 2 Cold Scorpio (WCW tag team champions) (with Teddy Long).
  • Sting vs Sid Vicious.
  • Rick Rude (WCW International World champion) vs Ric Flair.
