Halloween Havoc

Halloween Havoc was an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from 1989 through 2000. Since the event was held in October, it had a Halloween themed show. The first four events were held when WCW was affiliated with the National Wrestling Alliance. The final five events were held in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. In 2015, all WCW pay-per-views were made available on the WWE Network. In 2018, Las Vegas based company, KBN Inc. filed for the trademark of Halloween Havoc which according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office had been listed as "dead" since 2005.[1][2]
