From Starrcade '83 to March 26, 2001, Tony Schiavone was the voice of professional wrestling below the Mason-Dixon Line. Today Tony is the Voice of Major League Wrestling and though the Monday Night Wars may be over you can still relive the memories of Jim Crockett Promotions and WCW on #WhatHappened When every Monday on MLWRadio.com!
Slamboree '93 was the Legends Reunion and there has never been a show like this before... thankfully! Tony loved it but Conrad maybe not so much. WCW is hitting the panic button based on poor houses and they're doubling down on nostalgia. If you haven't actually watched a show along with us in a while, this is the one! WCW production is at it's all-time worst here. Seriously, it's so bad you have to see it for yourself. Scott Norton refused to lose to Sting so they brought in... the Prisoner. Yes, it's what you think it is. The Legends are in the ring but no one introduces them, Matt Koon is playing guitar instead of wrestling, the cameras miss the pyro, Ventura missed the show, the lights go out during a promo (and don't come back on), Bullet Bob is out with an injury, guys in their 50s are going to time limit draws, Cactus Jack is the best angle in the company so of course he's not on this card, WCW is desperate for a big heel so they take a stab at bringing Sid back, Shane Douglas is hurt and wants out but they don't want us to believe that so they call Tom Zenk "Shane Douglas" -- this is not made up. How? Well put him under a hood like a Mexican tag team but let's not pretend they're Hispanic, let's believe they're Shane Douglas. Confused yet? WCW in 1993 folks. You gotta see this to believe it. Oh and Paul Roma is a Horseman. Yes, this is that show. PAUL ROMA IS A HORSEMAN!
