034: Nitro Watchalong, episode nine

Back in the mid-1990s during the early stages of wrestling companies staging live weekly flagship TV shows and monthly PPVs, the continuity model was still very much rough around the edges. One thing was usually a constant, however: do not give away PPV footage on free TV when there are still replays to be bought.

Of course, WCW would choose Halloween Havoc 1995 as the event to buck this trend, as their 'main event' on Nitro episode nine was a replay of the PPV's closing moments. Yes, the moment when The Giant and THE YETAY! performed a three-man sex act on Hulk Hogan in the middle of the ring.

Join Dean and Liam as they explain why the ninth Nitro joins episode eight in the bin despite getting off to a reasonable enough start, and why the phrase "it's always darkest before dawn" is very applicable here.
