Maxx Payne vs. Hack Myers

Both disturbing and disturbed, the 6’6″, 340-pound Maxx Payne is the ultimate loner. Is Payne confused? Neurotic? Psychotic? A master of mind games?

He has a wide range of wrestling holds, but his favorites are those that cause the most pain to his opponents.

Bad Crew vs. The Public Enemy

When Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge come through the curtain waving their hands in the air, you know it is going to be a violent night.

Plus, how can you not love a team that brought a table to the ring every night?

Rocco Rock has ‘Naughty by Nature’ printed on the back of his jersey while Johnny Grunge has ‘Violent By Design’ on the back of his jersey.

 

It’s a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners garbage brawl.

 

The Public Enemy defeated Bad Crew in a Street Fight match in 6:10 when Rocco Rock defeated Bad Crew #1 by pinfall with a Drive-By.

“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 Dugganvskevin sullivan 3WomanHugh Morrus 4

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.

 

Craig Pittman

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.

We have “The Professor” Mike Tenay hosting a “WCW Up Close” segment in which he interviewed Eddie Guerrero regarding his background, arrival to WCW and discussing the stiff competition in the ultra talented WCW Cruiserweight Division.

He talks about arriving to WCW, and his rivalry with Dean Malenko; during the segment, footage aired of Eddie Guerrero in AAA.

He says out of all the great matches and tough opponents he’s had over the years, the greatest and the toughest has been Dean Malenko, and now that they’re both in WCW, he looks forward to showing the world what they can do together.

Eddie Guerrero also talked about his goals in WCW in which he targetted winning the WCW Cruiserweight title and the WCW World Television title. Eddie said it was no secret as to where he’s been before or what he’s done, and that WCW is the premiere wrestling organization in the World.

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.

Interview w/ Lex Luger

gene okerlund 2Lex 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.

 

nick bockwinkel

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.

Mean Gene is promoting a WCW Hotline story on three major WWF stars who were headed to WCW…


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.
And every perp he meets will taste defeat.
The book of law is the bible to him.
And any crime committed is a sin.
He keeps the peace with his baseball bat.
Judge, jury and executioner.
Crime’s his only enemy and he’s going to war…


Singles Match for the WCW World Television Title

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.

At Fall Braw 1995 The Hulkamaniacs (Hulk Hogan, Sting, The Warrior and Ray Traylor) defeated The Stud Stable (Vader, Bam Bam Bigelow, Kurosawa and Meng).

 

 

gene okerlund 2vaderharley race

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.

 

“Mean” Gene talk about the upcoming Halloween Havoc and makes the announcement that the following matches will take place at Halloween Havoc:

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!

Hulk up!

Beat chest!

Punch

Backhand

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.

The tag team of Brad Armstrong and Tim Horner should be more well-known than they are. A high skilled wrestler, Brad Armstrong could wrestle with the best of them and Tim Horner was one of the premier junior heavyweight wrestlers in the country. Together, they found plenty of success in GCW and JCP, lighting up the southeastern United States with red-hot rivalries.

Harlem Heat dominate the underdogs with fluid double-team moves.

In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Harlem Heat defeated The Lightning Express in 6:01 when Booker T defeated Tim Horner by pinfall with a Heat Bomb. Harlem Heat make defence number 1 of their WCW World Tag Team titles.

Mean Gene assured him Hogan was not here.

 

Vader yells “What time is it?” and then “It’s Time, It’s Vader Time!”

 

Vader has held three different world titles from three different promotions on three continents making him the closest thing professional wrestling has ever had to a true world champion.

Vader says that Hogan’s weaker than him because of fear.

“I fear no man and I feel no pain!”

“‘I am the Man!”

 

When Hogan ambushed him…

They had an  awesome pull apart brawl, until security swarms the arena.

Officials and security swarms the arena to break up the fight before they kill each other.

 

Hogan commented on the “rag sheets” that don’t know anything about the business and said he would take on Vader in a Spin The Wheel, Make The Deal Match at Halloween Havoc.

He hasn’t missed one workout, brother. The no-good stinky Vader is going down, brother.

Despite not being champion he gets really egotistical about everyone trying to knock him off the pedastal and has the gall to call himself the “Best in the World”.

And after I beat that big stinky Vader at Halloween Havoc, I just may keep the black gloves, brother.

Hogan says is going to kill Vader for what he did at SuperBrawl.

“Because we all know what a guy with black gloves and a black rag over his head is capable of doing!” and he makes cut throat gesture.”

Vader threw chairs around ringside and legitimately tries fighting the steel barriers as Harley drags him off.

Jim Duggan is a rough and tumble brawler and power wrestler. An excellent, bleeding, asskicking babyface brawler from Hell.

A big man, nearly 400 pounds, “The Beast from the East” Bam Bam Bigelow stood out from the other monsters in the business by being particularly agile for his size, as well as his trademark look: tights with a flame motif to match the tattoo of flames on his skull. He is also an incredibly talented performer, somehow capable of hurtling his mammoth frame around the ring in the manner of an acrobat without compromising his formidable power game.

From the opening bell Bam Bam Bigelow pulverizes his opponent with an uncomplicated range of power moves.

In an exceptional brawl, Bam Bam Bigelow defeated Jim Duggan in 6:15 by pinfall with a Greeting From Asbury Park. Bam Bam Bigelow makes defence number 6 of his WCW United States title.

Savage says he can’t be controlled. There is no stopping the madness!

“The madness is runnin’ wild in WCW! Ohhhhh yeahhhh!”

 

He says as far as Ric Flair and The Horsemen goes, the only way to kill a snake is to cut it’s head off, and he’s gonna do just that.

Randy Savage is mocking The Horsemen and suggest the rename themselves to The Three Horsemen.

 

Last week in the Six-Man Tag Team match, Lex Luger cheapshooted him, and there’s now way around it.

He says he can guarantee one thing, and this is a prediction, the next time we see The Horsemen, you’re gonna see one new member: Lex Luger!

Luger says he did his part last week, and it was a team effort, and it’s not his fault they lost the match against The Horsemen. But at least he’s up front with his personal agenda, he wants the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, and he’s made no bones about it, he’s not hiding it from either Savage, Vader or Hulk Hogan.

But he asks if that’s Savage’s wish too, to be champion, and if he’s too scared to tell Vader and Hogan that?

Savage says Luger makes a good point, of course he wants to be champion, but he’s got no problem telling Hogan, telling Vader or telling anyone else that, and as far as personal agendas go, they can settle theirs right now and Savage wants the bell to be rung!

Mean Gene starts freaking out and Luger and Savage tease going at each other. Savage slaps Luger; and Luger laughs and leaves as Savage dares him to fight.

 

Is Lex Luger a face or a heel?

It’s time for Kevin Sullivan “The Most Evil Man in Professional Wrestling of All Time”


“Best there is… past, present and future! Ohhhhh yeahhhh!”


randy savagevskevin sullivan 3Woman

Randy Savage vs. Kevin Sullivan w/ Woman

At first glance Kevin Sullivan does not appear to pose any threat, but he exude and aura of menace. He has a brilliant mind and a penchant for violence, a mixture between Napoleon and Hannibal Lecter.

Kevin Sullivan is a Boston bad boy, who stomped heroes like Brian Pillman and Cactus Jack with the Sam Adams-soaked rage of a Beantown bar fighter. Throughout his career he has been involved in many of the most brutal matches in wrestling history. He is a brawler and will use any weapon that comes to hand during the course of a match. He is not adverse to attacking officials, commentators, photographers and even fans if they get in his way.

 

The Barbarian

The Barbarian comes down to be in Sullivan’s corner during Savage’s entrance.

 

The match actually starts on the floor. Sullivan gets away from Savage leaving The Barbarian to throw him into the ringpost. Now that’s Savage is hurting, The Barbarian tosses him into the ring for Sullivan to stomp around.

Back to the floor. Sullivan drops Savage crotch-first on the ringpost and Clotheslines him down. Typical Sullivan brawling. More of the same from Sullivan until Savage Backdrops him on the floor.

 

Once again Kevin Sullivan did throw his victim to the floor and distract the Referee so that The Barbarian could beat up Savage on the floor.

The Barbarian mercilessly obliterates Savage in sadistic, one-sided squash job fashion, before throwing him back into the ring.

 

Back in the ring, Savage delivers a Flying Double Sledge to Sullivan.

 

The Barbarian

With The Barbarian on the apron, Savage tosses out Sullivan and brings The Barbarian into the ring.

Ref Randy Anderson tries to stop him, but he gets thrown away for the DQ.

 

In an unbelievable match, Randy Savage defeated Kevin Sullivan in 10:16 when Kevin Sullivan was disqualified when Arn Anderson ran in and attacked Randy Savage.

Lex Luger vs. Meng

It’s a powerhouse versus powerhouse dream match.

“The Face of Terror” Meng is an unstoppable monster. The toughest man in American wrestling. The mighty savage is an immovable mountain of a man that no one wanted to face. His devastating Tongan Death Grip and martial arts abilities brought many competitors to their knees, begging for mercy.

Lex Luger’s unmatched power and impressive physique makes him a formidable force inside the squared circle.

 

Meng is able to use Lex Luger’s arrogant posing to his advantage.

Meng just dominates him for a good 5 minutes and no-sells Luger’s offense. 

Luger’s selling the beatdown as Meng continues the assault. He charges Luger in the corner, but Luger gets the Double Boots up and starts going on the offensive and taking Meng off his feet.

Luger connects with the Running Forearm.

 

Luger moves in for the kill eventually and the crowd is red hot.

But WWF reportedly filled out all the required paperwork and had the proper permits, so nothing about the filming was illegal, even though it annoyed the town.


In ECWA news, it is being reported that Ron Bruise has apparently been spoken to by police after leaving several “threatening” messages for Jim Kettner, head booker of the promotion. The cause of friction between the two is unknown, but insiders have commented that there’s a lof of bad blood and that it would not be a surprise if Ron Bruise was on his way out of the company soon.
