|Hogan hits the Dungeon|

In 1995 there was a group of wrestlers hellbent on destroying Hulkamania. Hulk Hogan had been in WCW for about a year at that point and had already taken care of Ric Flair. Then he defeated former friend Brutus Beefcake who was wrestling as "The Butcher."
But the Butcher wasn't done with the Hulkster. He joined the group of misfits called the Dungeon of Doom. The Taskmaster Kevin Sullivan seemed to be in charge of the group, although we learned he was taking orders from The Master, who was played by former WWF manager The Wizard (also King Curtis Iaukea)

|I guess Slick's intervention didn't help...|
|The Yeti. Yes, this really happened.|
Tiny Lister was Hogan's rival "Zeus" in the movie No Holds Barred in the WWF. The two had a couple of matches back in 1989. Fast forward to 1995, and WCW thought it was a good idea to bring him back to join the Dungeon. Z-Gangsta was just another guy who really couldn't do much brought in to destroy Hulkamania.

The Dungeon of Doom makes it into the Halloween blogs in part because of their "fear factor" but also for the silly costumes that many of the members wore. I'm not sure how many fans were actually scared of this group, but hey, they tried, right?
