Hi. Welcome To Warrior Central.
First off I've never seen Haloween Havoc but from reports, not only of the PPV but of events leading to it, there are a number of things that went wrong with Warrior vs Hogan 2.
For Warriors part he had been away from wrestling for over two years previously. Ring rust was inevitable. Warrior had asked Eric Bischoff for the oppertunity to get in the ring and work some matches to get back in shape and to build momentum. This was denied. That was a bad decision on Bischoff's part as it was steamrolling through opponents that made Warrior what he was back in the late 80's and early 90's.
Also, Warrior injured his arm about 6 weeks previously at War Games. He worked through the injury to try get back into shape but obviously wasn't at 100% by the time Haloween Havoc rolled around and one of his arms had noticably less muscle mass than the other.

Now we get to Hogan. Hogan had all the booking power in WCW at the time. He brought Warrior in for one reason and one reason only. To avenge the loss at WM6. This fact is backed up by Warrior having only one more appearance in WCW after Haloween Havoc. No comeback. No vengance for the beatdown by NWO. Nothing. Just a meeting with Eric Bischoff where he was told his services were no longer required.

The match itself: There was the fireball incident which Hogan screwed up. This made Warrior look bad as he had to sell for longer than originally planned. Warrior was earlier made to look like less than a credible threat when Hogan won the two tests of strength.

It all combined to make the Haloween Havoc match less than stellar. What pisses me off most about the whole thing is that the seeds of blame seem to have been planted firmly at the feet of The Warrior. Hogan has walked away from it smelling like roses even though, in my opinion, he was mostly to blame for stinking it up.
