The first-ever Halloween Havoc took place in Philadelphia, and it featured a main event extreme enough to foreshadow the rise of ECW five years later. The Thunderdome cage had a concave ceiling with a hole in the middle, but escape was impossible because it was electrified. The only way either team could win is if the other team's manager threw in the towel. On one side of the cage, Ric Flair teamed with Sting with Ole Anderson in their corner. In the other, Gary Hart held the towel for Terry Funk and The Great Muta. Additionally, Bruno Sammartino acted as the special guest referee. If anything else, this match was an amazing spectacle.
