Old School Review: Slamboree 1993

Sting vs. The Prisoner

Sting makes his way to the ring, to an absolutely tremendous reaction before his opponent, The Prisoner makes his way to the ring. He looks familiar, and a brief moment of research concludes he is better known as “Nailz” from the WWE. Anyhow, he is dominant over Sting in the early moment. Apparently, someone has placed a bounty on the head of Sting but there is no indication as to who has done it. Sting is eventually able to mount a comeback, with The Prisoner literally no-selling various moves. Eventually, Sting is able to pick up the win in a forgettable match.

Winner: Sting

Match Rating: 1.5 out of 5.0 Stars

We go to Schiavone and Zbysko briefly as the cage is constructed around the ring, before we go to Eric Bischoff with The Crusher (who can still cut a great promo) before turning to Ox Baker (who also can cut a great promo) and talks about the love of hurting people but how he’d love to get back in the ring again.

NWA and WCW Tag Team Championship: Steel Cage Match – The Hollywood Blondes (c) vs. Dos Hombres

Dos Hombres make their way to the ring first, but they are better known as Shane Douglas (who was actually replaced by Tom Zenk in the match) and Ricky Steamboat which makes it seem completely ridiculous. The Hollywood Blondes then make their way to the ring (it is weird to see Austin with hair) and he match gets underway which is seemingly contested under normal tag team rules. Even Schiavone is referring to Dos Hombres by their ring names which makes this gimmick seem even more stupid. The match is really well contested, with Steamboat eventually unmasking himself before performing an impressive aerial move from the top of the cage. Eventually, Austin is able to pick up the win for The Hollywood Blondes in a great cage match, different and unique to what is the normal.

Winner: The Hollywood Blondes

Match Rating: 3.5 out of 5.0 Stars
