Halloween Havoc 93 returned with the Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal contest. This time, Vader and Cactus Jack were squaring off. The show kicked off with a cheesy skit involving some kids and Tony Schiavanoe. Then they went into the arena with Eric Bischoff in touting the wheel, and then cut to Schiavanoe dressed like Jessie Ventura. Jess was dressed as "the best gynecologist on Burbon Street."
Opening match featured Harlem Heat & the Equalizer vs. Ice Train, Charlie Norris, and Shockmaster. Wow, what a combo. Harlem Heat members were Kole and Kane, no Booker T or Stevie Ray at that point. Shockmaster's team wins.
"Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff (with the Assassin) and Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat had a pretty good match. I don't recall if the two ever met up when they were in the WWF. Orndorff won this one by countout after Assassin knocked out the Dragon with a loaded mask.
The two Brits, Lord Steven Regal and the British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith, battled to a time limit draw for the WCW TV championship.

"The Natural" Dustin Rhodes beat "Stunning" Steve Austin in a U.S. title defense. Another great prelude to the Goldust vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin matches in the WWF in the years to come. The Nasty Boys with Missy Hyatt won the tag team titles back from Too Cold Scorpio and Marcus Alexander Bagwell.

With the exception of the 6 man opener, this was a pretty good event. The Sid-Sting match was kinda lame, especially the finish. The Texas Death match was good, but I hated the finish. Half the matches on the card were title matches, something we don't see much of these days. And personally, I missed Jim Ross calling Havoc like he had on the previous four. He had just left the company for WWF.
