WCW World Television Champion: Lord Steven Regal (9/19/1993)

The intro to the show is just DY-NO-MITE by the way. It’s one of those high-budget deals where they spent more money on production, than they’ll make from ticket sales. Tony Schiavone invites some innocent young trick-or-treaters into his home because they’re looking for a scary time. Since the kids aren’t impressed when Tony tells them about “spin the wheel, make the deal”, he rips off his face to reveal that he’s actually a big, huge fly monster. Not fly like in the ’70s, he’s a big insect that annoys the crap out of you.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and Jesse Ventura. Tony’s dressed up as Jesse Ventura while Jesse decides to be an evil gynecologist for Halloween. Right. Read the rest of this entry
