Halloween Havoc (1991) was the third Halloween Havoc professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW). The event took place on October 27, 1991 from the UTC Arena in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The main event was a two out of three falls match, in which Lex Luger defended the WCW World Heavyweight Championship against Ron Simmons. Luger defeated Simmons to retain the title. Another major match at the event was a Chamber of Horrors match between the team of El Gigante, Sting, and The Steiner Brothers (Rick Steiner and Scott Steiner) and the team of Abdullah the Butcher, The Diamond Studd, Cactus Jack and Big Van Vader. Brian Pillman was crowned the inaugural Light Heavyweight Champion at the event by defeating Richard Morton in the finals of a tournament.
As of 2014 the event is available on the WWE Network.
The event featured wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.

In the opening match, Sting's team won after Cactus Jack accidentally pulled the switch while Abdullah the Butcher was in the electric chair. Originally, the match was supposed to feature El Gigante, Sting, and the Steiner Brothers against Oz, the Diamond Studd, the One Man Gang, and Barry Windham. Cactus replaced Oz, Big Van Vader replaced Windham, and Abdullah replaced Gang. During the pre-show, Barry Windham was attacked by Arn Anderson and Larry Zbyszko and suffered a broken hand when they slammed his hand in a car door. One Man Gang was scheduled to take part in this match, but left WCW before the show. With Cactus Jack in the opening match, Oz replaced him against Bill Kazmaier. Doug Somers replaced Michael Hayes, who was originally scheduled for the match. The Phantom later revealed himself to be Rick Rude.
