Slamboree was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event from World Championship Wrestling (WCW) held from 1993 through 2000. It was held in the month of May. It was originally billed as "A Legends' Reunion" because many retired legends from Jim Crockett Promotions attended the PPV and other events scheduled for that weekend. The first three Slamborees saw inductions into the WCW Hall of Fame during the PPV. They also included matches with the legends participating.
