Oh baby and oh no! This is the most shocking year to year change in Halloween Havoc history. Your trios tag team champions hosts have trouble wrapping their minds around each and every head scratching moment.
This eleventh incarnation of the Halloween Havoc series took place October 24, 1999 once again from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, but this time in front of nearly 8,500 fans. The attendance is down but can this still be considered a sell out?
Your hosts are from New York and we still don’t get what took place on this show. The “Powers that Be” – former WWF writers Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara – are now in charge of WCW and it shows. We debate some things that worked, a lot that didn’t, and all points in between. We’re not the only ones confused by these changes because the camera crew, the referees, and even the announcers have their moments throughout this event.
In addition to breaking down the matches and segments from this pay per view we also discuss the Total Package, Hugh Knobbs, and Nitro cologne.
Halloween Havoc 1999 matches include:
- Disco Inferno (WCW Cruiserweight champion) vs Lash LeRoux.
- Harlem Heat vs The First Family (with Jimmy Hart) vs The Filthy Animals for the vacant WCW tag team titles in a falls count anywhere street fight.
- Eddie Guerrero vs Perry Saturn.
