KAYFABE THEATER: The Road Warriors get ready for Starrcade and The Scaffold

1986 – Hawk and Animal work out to the sounds of Black Sabbath, then send a message to Jim Cornette by throwing a pumpkin with the words ‘Mama’s Boy’ off the top of a scaffold.

The Legion of Doom was set to face Cornette’s Midnight Express in a scaffold match at Starrcade ’86, and would eventually come out victorious at Crockett Promotions’ signature, annual event.

The biggest loser of the night, however, was Cornette himself. At the conclusion of the match, the manager would suffer the same fate as the pumpkin… falling 25 feet to the arena floor and suffering serious knee injuries.
