Randy Savage & Maxx Payne vs. Hugh Morrus & Kevin Sullivan w/ Woman
The Laughing Man, is a strange wrestler that is wearing a singlet covered in question marks. Big and tough, the New Jersey native can trade punches with the best of them, while laughing frequently.
At first glance he does not appear to pose any threat, but Kevin Sullivan exude and aura of menace. He has a brilliant mind and a penchant for violence, a mixture between Napoleon and Hannibal Lecter. A good brawler, he is perhaps best known for his feuds with the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes and Mike Graham in the NWA’s Championship Wrestling from Florida. He 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 and will use any weapon that comes to hand during the course of a match.
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?
Maxx Payne has a wide range of wrestling holds, but his favorites are those that cause the most pain to his opponents.
“Macho Man” Randy Savag ie is a famously intense and fearless competitor, also known for his suicide runs.
The four wrestlers clobbered each other with everything they had as they brawled throughout Worcesters’ DCU Arena.
The match went back-and-forth.
Macho Man connects with an Diving Double Axe-Handle on Hugh Morrus.
Then an elevated Bodyslam with theatrics followed by impactful Savage Elbow Drop.

It’s a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners brawl all over the place.

Official and security quickly swarms the arena to prevent the wrestlers from tearing down the freakin’ building.

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…
