Remembering the Disastrous ‘Chamber of Horrors’ Match, WWE Previews the UK Championship Tournament (Video)


Behold, the Chamber of Horrors

WWE has uploaded some footage taking a look back at the infamous WCW Chamber of Horrors match… for some reason. I guess because it’s the most ridiculous thing the late Big Van Vader was ever involved in.

The bout took place at the 1991 WCW Halloween Havoc pay-per-view when Sting, Giant Gonzalez and the Steiner Brothers took on Abdullah the Butcher, Scott Hall (as the Diamond Studd), Cactus Jack and Big Van Vader all tucked inside a giant steel cage. The goal of the match was to strap one of your opponents into an… wait for it… electric chair, that slowly descended from the rafters.
