The Haunted House Show: Halloween Havoc 1992

It's time. Time for the most famous phrase in Halloween Havoc history. It's time to... Spin the Wheel. Make the Deal! Sting must spin a wheel full of dangerous specialty matches and accept whichever one the wheel finally lands on.

It's time. Time for the most famous phrase in Halloween Havoc history. It's time to... 

"Spin the Wheel. Make the Deal!"

That's right. Tonight's event happened October 25, 1992, from the Philadelphia Civic Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in front of 7,000 loud wrestling fans. What is the main event? Sting and Jake "the Snake" Roberts will face off in a match with an unknown stipulation. Sting must spin a wheel full of dangerous specialty matches and accept whichever one the wheel finally lands on. 

In another action it is a night of confusing title matches. There are two World titles defended. The tag team champions carry two sets of belts. And the United States title is defended but not by the champion. All will be explained during the episode. 

We start off with a Steiner math discussion. Is Matty Treats early or late for tonight's recording? Treats has more pressing issues though and we analyze his morning criminal mind ritual. We discuss why we think some wrestlers were only active in certain eras. Plus, would an amazing angle on tonight's event work today? 

Tonight's matches include: 
  • Tom Zenk, Johnny Gunn and the Shockmaster vs. Arn Anderson, Bobby Eaton and Michael PS Hayes. 
  • Ricky Steamboat vs. Brian Pillman.
  • Big Van Vader (defending the US title for Rick Rude) vs Nikita Koloff.
  • Barry Windham and Dustin Rhodes (WCW and NWA unified tag team champions) vs Steve Williams and Steve Austin.
  • Rick Rude (with Madusa)  vs. Masahiro Chono (with Hiro Matsuda) (NWA World champion). Harley Race and Kensuke Sasaki are the special guest referees. 
  • Ron Simmons (WCW World champion) vs. The Barbarian (with Cactus Jack).
  • Sting vs. Jake "the Snake" Roberts in a Coal Miner's Glove match.
