Another week elapsed, another Lapsed Fan here at WZ, and this time it's Jack and JP's first look at a WCW pay-per-view. The co-chairmen break down the 1991 Halloween Havoc, and the unforgettable, for better or worse (who are we kidding? Worse) "Chamber of Horrors" match. The panel dissect the show as only they can, pointing out and meditating on a number of fascinating tidbits, including:- The original move pegged the "Attitude Adjustment"
– The story behind Paul E.'s sudden exodus from WCW and dramatic return on this show to form "The Dangerous Alliance."
– Which of the show's competitors JP had Galoob figures of
– Prescient insight into Alexandra York's laptop and presumptions on how it led her charges, including "The Computerized Man of the 90s," Terrence Taylor, to, well, losses
– The match where, to win, you had to put your opponent in an electric chair and flip the lethal switch, subjecting the audience to a live death that the announcers somehow covered with a detached nonchalance. Unlike anything you've ever seen, thank God. All that and so, so much more on the latest Lasped Fan, exclusively at WrestleZone.

As always, thank you Scott for plugging our show!JP Sarro
– Arguably the worst pin in the history of the sport of kings- How hard it was to find this particular show in video stores – Roddy Piper’s prejudice against people without a neck- Who Bret Hart claimed was the WWE’s most “stunning figure” at the time – Two words…Art Donovan
I was hoping again to plug THE LAPSED FAN on the BOD.
Bret. Shawn. Survivor Series… But not the one you're thinking of. This week the Co-Chairmen tackle the first Bret vs. Shawn PPV main event five years before Montreal: The 1992 WWE Survivor Series. This show came at a crucial transition point of the WWE with a departure of the overly-muscled bodies at the top for a focus on more technical wrestlers. Among other things discussed: The face turn of Mr. Perfect leading up to the show (a move out of desperation that turned into brilliance), the absence of holiday themed PPVs in today's product, the criminal backstory of Nailz and Jack Tunney's failings in the matter. All that and much, much more on this week's two part episode of THE LAPSED FAN with Jack Encarnacao and JP Sarro. Follow us on twitter: @thelapsedfan
Thank you again and thank you very much for the previous plugs over the last several weeks.
