Episode 40 - October 28th, 1996

Season 2 | Episode 22
2h 5m | Mar 28, 2022

This episode was recorded prior to the sad passings of both Scott Hall and Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins. We look forward to remembering these two icons in particular on a future episode recording, given their respective influence on both our lives.

Coming live 25+ years after its original broadcast from Phoenix, Arizona, the boys cover the latest instalment of WCW Nitro, with all the fall-out from Slim Jim's Halloween Havoc 1996. This will include a return of the elusive WCW World Television Title, as Lord Steven Regal (c) puts it on the line against Juventud Guerrera. Diamond Dallas Page will take on Mike Enos in a surprisingly good contest, while WCW World Cruiserweight Champion Dean Malenko will give the not-so-Crusier Jim Powers (w/Teddy Long) a shot at that. Jeff Jarrett takes on Ricky Morton, The Amazing French Canadians (Carl Ouellet & Jacques Rougeau) battle High Voltage (Kenny Kaos & Robbie Rage), Rey Misterio Jr. / Rey Mysterio will face Jimmy Graffiti. a legitimately injured Eddie Guerrero braves it against the "injured" Chris Benoit (w/Woman), Booker T (w/Sister Sherri) and Lex Luger throw down, and there's a surprise or two in the mix also, including an appearance from STING. The boys will also discuss some of the crazy world we live in right now, Ric Flair, Mark Madden, Jerry Springer and more.

As usual, @NitroGenCast has you covered everywhere, and we'd like to thank you all for the support and listens to our little podcast.
