Battlebowl was a one-time professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by World Championship Wrestling. It was made up of tag team matches in which the partners were randomly drawn in a "Lethal Lottery" and a team had to work together to advance to the Battlebowl Battle Royal at the end of the night. The Battlebowl concept had been featured at Starrcade 1991 and Starrcade 1992, but this was the first time WCW chose to make it a standalone event.

This edition of Battlebowl took place on November 20, 1993 at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida. After the pay-per-view, WCW discontinued the Battlebowl series altogether. Battlebowl has only been held once since then, at Slamboree in 1996.[1]In 2015, All WCW pay-per-views were made available on the WWE Network.
