The match is perhaps best remembered for its unconventional and theatrical buildup, which included the unveiling of Vader’s “White Castle of Fear.” In an attempt to add more drama to their pay-per-view events, WCW had begun crafting mini-movies to promote their shows.

The promotional efforts for this match took an exceedingly campy direction, creating a memorable and somewhat bizarre chapter in WCW history.
