Eric Bischoff has revealed which of the pay-per-view events held by World Championship Wrestling was his absolute favourite.
Bischoff was taking part in a special ‘Ask Eric Anything’ episode of his 83 Weeks podcast [available via AdFreeShows.com]. Co-host Conrad Thompson relayed the question to the former WCW President as to which WCW pay-per-view was the best that he had been involved in.
Thompson mentioned that Halloween Havoc 1996 was his and Bischoff agreed:
“Yes, Halloween Havoc for some reason just always worked for me. Not always but for a long time, worked for me. I can’t put my finger on why. There’s multiple reasons I guess, the fact that it was in MGM Grand [Las Vegas] for a long time and we were selling out in a matter of minutes or hours a couple of years in a row. But yeah I would say [Halloween Havoc 1996].”
Eric Bischoff then also added what WCW Monday Nitro he most enjoyed:
“I think the Nitro, this is gonna sound self-serving like I’m caressing myself but the Nitro where Roddy Piper revealed I was part of the nWo, that was pretty cool. “
Halloween Havoc took place in October of 1996 with the newly-christened Hollywood Hogan defending his WCW World Championship against Randy Savage in the main event. The Outsiders also brought more gold to the New World Order as they defeated Harlem Heat for the WCW Tag Team Title. WWE Hall of Famers DDP, Arn Anderson, Eddie Guerrero, Sean Waltman, and Jeff Jarrett were all on the card that night as well.
