“Mean” Gene Okerlund is promoting another WCW Hotline story…
It’s time for Kevin Sullivan “The Most Evil Man in Professional Wrestling of All Time”
Here comes “Hacksaw” with an American flag in one hand and his trusty 2×4 in the other. You disrespect America, you disrespect Hacksaw.
Jim Duggan vs. Kevin Sullivan w/ Woman & Hugh Morrus
“Hooooooooooooooo!!!” “U-S-A!” “U-S-A!” “U-S-A!”
“Hacksaw’s gonna do what Hacksaw came to do! Beat people up! What You Gonna Do About It, Tough Guy?”
The two wrestlers get into a random fist fight at the start and the crowd gets jacked for it!
Kevin Sullivan did throw “Hacksaw” to the floor and distract the Referee so that “The Laughing Man” Hugh Morrus could beat up “Hacksaw” on the floor.
Hugh Morrus mercilessly obliteraties Duggan in sadistic, one-sided squash job fashion, before throwing him back into the ring.
Sullivan is so evil that he’d get away with this multiple times in the match.
Jim Duggan is an excellent, bleeding, asskicking babyface brawler from Hell.
Duggan gets mad at Sullivan and Hugh Morrus and goes for the 2×4 while the referee is down.
But Sgt. Craig Pittman runs out and grabs the 2×4 and has a tug of war over it with Duggan. This allows Sullivan to grab the 2×4 and KO Duggan with a shot to the back of the head to win.
Pittman leaves as the referee awakes for the 1-2-3!
In a wild brawl that had great heat, Kevin Sullivan defeated Jim Duggan in 7:56 by pinfall following interference from Sgt. Craig Pittman.

Okerlund then said a former WWF superstar was wanting to be at Halloween Havoc and told viewers to call the WCW Hotline for more.
It’s WCW’s lovable, zany kooky kitty mascot Wild Cat Willie dancing and entertaining the crowd…
The friendly feline that serves as WCW’s mascot, Wild Cat Willie can be seen ringside at most matches showcasing his acrobatic skills.
He’d run around! He’d jump on a trampoline!
But mostly he’d be really annoying…
It’s time for “The Total Package” Lex Luger!
Mikey Wellbody vs. Lex Luger
Lex Luger is one of the most ripped guys in wrestling and his naturally arrogant personality shone through the match.
Is Luger a face or a heel?
It’s a typical five moves of doom squash match ending with The Torture Rack.

Interview w/ Lex Luger
“Mean Gene” is in the ring with Lex Luger and shows footage of the Randy Savage vs. Lex Luger confrontation from Monday Nitro.
Luger talks about all of the stuff Savage has said and goes over and over again about how he did not purposely cheap shot Randy Savage in Six-Man Tag Team Match versus The Horsemen, but nothing’s going to change Savage’s mind.
He says him and Savage have known each other a couple of years now and there was never a real problem, but suddenly since day one back here in WCW, Savage has been thumbs down and against Luger, talking about Luger’s personal agenda.
Savage makes his way out.
Lex Luger meets Randy Savage in the ring.
WCW Commissioner Nick Bockwinkel arrives to make sure that a brawl don’t erupt.
Luger again admits that he wants the World Title, why wouldn’t he since he is the number one contender? He says that’s every superstar’s aspiration and if it’s not they should get out of this business.
They argue some more and it boils down to Luger making a challenge to a match next week on Monday Nitro, and he’ll put his number one contender spot and World Title shot on the line. And he’s so confident that he can beat Randy Savage, he’ll do him one better, and if Savage can win not only does he get the title shot versus the winner between Vader and Hulk Hogan, but Lex Luger will leave WCW.
Savage says he’s got himself a deal and goes to shake his hand, but Luger walks out on the shake.

Great pop from the female audience for the underdog Alex Wright…
He is like no lawman you’ve ever seen.
A man so hard, his veins bleed ice.
Truth and justice are what he’s fighting for.
With a baseball bat he rules the streets.

Judge, jury and executioner.
Crime’s his only enemy and he’s going to war…

A Night Of Terror And Suspense!
Halloween Havoc Control Center segment hosted by Gene Okerlund.
Halloween Havoc is official, as the WCW World Heavyweight champion Vader will do battle with “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan.
Mean Gene is recapping the history between Hulk Hogan and Vader dating back to Starrcade 1994.
After Hulk Hogan defeated the “Masked Assailant” Curt Hennig he was confrontated by Vader. Vader accused Hogan and Ric Flair on avoiding to face him! Says that Flair did owe him a rematch!
At SuperBrawl in 1995 Vader defeated Hulk Hogan in a Thundercage match with a Triple Powerbomb after Harley Race interfered with a Stun Gun.
Post-Match Hulk Hogan is destroyed by Vader and his bash brothers Bam Bam Bigelow. This is the merger between The Stud Stable and Harley Race International as Harley Race and Colonel Robert Parker join forces to end Hulkamania.

Gene Okerlund is talking with Vader and Harley Race about the Spin The Wheel Make The Deal Match.
Harley Race says they want to send Vader on a Roadkill Tour to lead up to Halloween Havoc where he will lay Hulk Hogan at their feet.
Vader goes on and on about how he fears no man and works for no man and he is his own man and Hulk Hogan is his.
He says that if either Randy Savage or Lex Luger gets in his way he’ll take them out, and he still has unfinished business with Sting that will never be over, and as far as Hogan goes, we all saw what happened in Philadelphia at SuperBrawl.

It’s time…for the Main Event of the evening!
Here comes his Lordship in person and his manager “Lord” Aloysius Hayes. Aloysius is Lord Alfred Hayes’ sneering nephew.. Steven Regal is wearing a powdered wig to the ring. Regal riles the crowd up, waving the Union Jack. The crowd responds with a massive “U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!” chant.
It’s Stinger Time!
“It’s showtime, folks!”
Sting is cupping his hands together and yelling “Owwwwww!”
Sting vs. Steven Regal w/ Aloysius Hayes
Explosive and athletic bodybuilder. “The Franchise of WCW” Sting is ridiculously fast and agile for a guy his size and he is strong enough to slam super heavyweights such as Vader.
Regal is one of the toughest men in wrestling history. Deceptively strong and in tremendous condition, he is a master of every wrestling hold and known maneuver. He is the finest scientific wrestler in the world today.
The aggressive blue blood looked the proper gentleman in his spotless cravat and houndstooth blazers, but he wrestled with all the refinement of a Manchester soccer hooligan. Mixing equal parts Snake Pit submissions and carnie survival tricks.
Regal works the arm to start, but Sting quickly makes the ropes. Sting hiptosses Regal, but Regal quickly trips him up and tries pinning him by holding his hands down. Sting kips out of but gets Monkey Flipped over anyway. Sting breaks out of that hold and he yanks the arm of Regal over while still in the Knucklelock.
Regal grabs a side Headlock that is quickly broken so Regal tosses Sting to the outside. He follows with a Regal Flip.
Regal holds his back for a bit afterwards and he probably really hurt his back there. Regal brings Sting back in and clubs away with Forearms and Chops in the corner. Sting counters with a Sunset Flip for two.
Regal takes down Sting, crossfaces him and adds in some Forearms for good measure. Regal sends Sting to the corner and charges, but he finds nothing but Sting’s boot.
Sting misses an Elbow Drop and Regal covers for two. Regal tries for a Belly To Back Suplex, but Sting blocks and counters with Mexican Arm-Drags. Sting Backdrops Regal and Regal begs off.
Sting no-sell Regal’s offense!
Regal is sent to the corner with a Irish Whip and Sting follows with a Stinger Splash.
It’s time for the Scorpion Deathlock and it’s all over as Regal taps out.
In a bout that had sensational wrestling and fantastic heat, Sting defeated Steven Regal in 15:46 by submission with a Scorpion Deathlock after botched interference by Aloysius Hayes.

Heenan’s pro-heel cheering on commentary during the bout had a great feel to it…
Vader Roadkill Tour
