1.) We are twenty-four hours away from Halloween Havoc, so be prepared for a lot of hype this week for the huge event.
2.) A video highlighting the feud between Dustin Rhodes and Arn Anderson leading into the Halloween Havoc event is aired. Arn agreeing to be Dustin’s partner and then proceeding to turn on Dustin leading to the grudge feud.
3.) Honkytonk Man gets interviewed following his victory. Honky wants the music to play until he tells them to turn it off. He will be wrestling Johnny B. Badd tomorrow night. Honky says the fans want to see him as a champion. Honky can’t wait to go to Michigan and leave a champion. He’s going to be the greatest WCW Television Champion ever.
4.) We see footage of the Stud Stable attacking the Nasty Boys backstage after the Fall Bralw event. The Nasty Boys are then interviewed by Mean Gene at the arena. Sags says that tomorrow night have a big bone to pick with the Stud Stable that they will settle tomorrow night. Knobbs says they are still standing and they didn’t get the job done to finish them off. Knobbs wants Meng to get in the ring and take him on at the event, too.
5.) Kevin Sullivan is interviewed following his victory. Kevin blames Dave for following Hulk Hogan for why he’d attack his brother. Kevin says tomorrow night they won’t have to listen to the chant of “Hogan” because Flair will win the match and end Hulkamania. Kevin continues to tease what he would do to Dave when they were younger.
6.) Ric Flair and Sherri Martel make their way out to be interviewed regarding his steel cage match with WCW World Champion Hulk Hogan tomorrow night. Flair says he doesn’t need to explain to anyone what it means to be Ric Flair or to be Hulk Hogan. That’s because they are the only two men to know what it means to be them. Flair says it is career vs. career at the Havoc. Flair knows what Mr. T is all about and wants Hogan to think about how there was never room in WCW for both of them. Flair says he is a lot smarter than Hogan and he wouldn’t put his career on the line if he didn’t know what he was doing. Flair notes that Hogan was a five time WWF World Champion but that means nothing. Flair is going to show the entire world tomorrow night why he deserves to be number one.
7.) The Stud Stable is interviewed following Funk and Buck winning their match. Parker promises that his men are going to be wildest most violent they’ve ever been for Halloween Havoc. Terry Funk promises that Havoc isn’t going to be a holiday for the Nasty Boys. Funk says if they lose he will be haunted by his father. Funk wants them to hang him at his home if they lose to the Nasty Boys. Bunkhouse Buck thinks the Nasty Boys bit off more than they could chew and they can’t get out of it now. Arn Anderson chimes in to talk about Dustin Rhodes. Arn says he is going to give Dustin a wake up call for his decision to become a man at Arn’s expense.
8.) WCW World Champion Hulk Hogan, Brother Brutus and Jimmy Hart come out to be interviewed to close the program. Hogan has to deal with two masked men, Mr. T as special referee and an injured left knee. Hulk doesn’t care about the knee because he will prove Flair even with a bum knee. He’s going to rip Flair apart from limb to limb. Hogan says he doesn’t believe what he saw on the videotape and considers T a friend. If T doesn’t call it right down the middle then he will slap T around like he’s Flair’s little sister. Hogan says he’s going to have to go the extra mile to prevail and it’s not because the title is on the line but it’s also for his career. He can’t let his fans down tomorrow night. Hogan is having his Brother Brutus watch the exits to make sure nobody gets involved. Hogan thinks that Flair will drop down to his knees and beg off but Hogan will not step back. Hogan believes that Hulkamania will live forever.
Just as I suspected it was just a hype show for Halloween Havoc and consisted of just basic interviews and there wasn’t a feature match. The build has felt a little subpar compared to the previous pay per view.
Thanks for reading.
