WCW vs NWO Podcast – Halloween Havoc 1996

Welcome to the WCW vs NWO Podcast, a Sports Obsessive wrestling podcast looking back at peak-period WCW. Dave, Gus, and Conor review Halloween Havoc 1996 for episode 3. Hollywood Hogan defends the world title against Randy Savage. Has the NWO finally broken Savage? Whose side is Liz is on? It wouldn’t be Halloween Havoc without summoning the monster trucks!

The NWO continues to grow in numbers now with their Syxx (Sean Waltman) on their side. Meanwhile, the Outsiders face-off with Harlem Heat for tag titles. NWO is determined to acquire every WCW title.

In typical WCW fashion, the rehashed main event is a disappointment. The NWO has meddled in Savage’s personal life and the Madness can only take so much. Hogan takes the match seriously by coming to the ring in a wig. Savage meanwhile summons a monster truck.

WCW ends the show in the most unusual way: a surprise promo. ‘Rowdy Roddy’ Piper makes his debut in WCW! A wrestler known for promo skills does not deliver to cap off the pay per view. We talk plenty of Piper’s run throughout the podcast and if only we knew how his run would progress.

3 wrestling fans review the war between WCW and the NWO PPV by PPV 96-98.
