The Lapsed Fan dares again this week to dive into early 90s WCW, as the co-chairmen assess the thrills, spills, and chills of the 1992 WCW Halloween Havoc.

Jack Encarnacao and JP Sarro journey into a Bill Watts time machine in an all-points review of one of the more taxing PPV events in WCW history.

The panel touches on:

– How Jesse Ventura made it his business as a WCW commentator to tongue-tie Jim Ross and essentially troll the whole time

– The merits of removing the mats from the floors, exposing that grimey Philadelphia concrete

– Was the Spin the Wheel apparatus gimmicked? The answer is as clear as the booking philosophy behind it

– Jake Roberts in WCW, and if his snake turning on him actually tied up the legendary Savage WWF fued

– Stunning Steve Austin’s many reincarnations

– The Coal Miner’s glove

– Paul E. calls Madusa a hooker
