On this day in Pro Wrestling history in 1998, Halloween Havoc 1998 took place. This PPV is infamously known for running 3 and a half hours instead of 3 hours, which resulted in a lot of people missing the WCW World Title Main Event.
The PPV featured the big Hogan-Warrior rematch from WrestleMania 6, and Goldberg defending the WCW World Heavyweight Title against Diamond Dallas Page in the main event.
Below are the results from the PPV:
– WCW World TV Title Match: Chris Jericho def. Raven to retain the Title.
– Wrath def. Meng
– Disco Inferno def. Juventud Guerrera
– Alex Wright def. Fit Finlay
– Saturn def. Lodi
– WCW Cruiserweight Title Match: Billy Kidman def. Disco Inferno to retain the Title.
– WCW World Tag Team Title Match: Rick Steiner and Buff Bagwell def. The Giant and Scott Steiner to win the Titles.
– Scott Hall def. Kevin Nash via Count-Out.
– WCW United States Heavyweight Title Match: Bret Hart def. Sting to retain the Title.
– Hollywood Hogan def. The Warrior
– WCW World Heavyweight Title Match: Goldberg def. Diamond Dallas Page to retain the Title.
Some of the people watching on PPV missed the WCW World Title main event as their feed cut out at 11 pm. Due to this, WCW had to air the match next night on WCW Nitro for free.
