Slamboree was a professional wrestlingpay-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. The rights of Slamboree are now owned by WWE since it bought WCW's related assets in 2001.
The winner of the Cruiserweight battle royal received an immediate WCW Cruiserweight Championship opportunity against champion Chris Jericho. "Ciclope" and Juventud Guerrera were the last two competitors in the match; the two wrestlers shook hands and Guerrera climbed out over the top rope to give "Ciclope" the victory. "Ciclope" then unmasked, revealing himself as Dean Malenko. Malenko would later be stripped of the WCW World Cruiserweight Championship two weeks later on Nitro for his actions in the battle royal. Goldberg was originally supposed to wrestle a gauntlet match against each member of The Flock, where if Goldberg lost to any of the Flock members Raven would regain the United States Championship Goldberg had taken from him. That stipulation was changed on the night of the show. Eric Bischoff had made a challenge on the episode of WCW Monday Nitro six days before Slamboree for Vince McMahon to show up and wrestle him. McMahon didn't show up and Bischoff ordered the referee to start the match and count to ten, then was awarded the win by countout.
Ric Flair originally won his match against Roddy Piper by pinfall, but Eric Bischoff came out and disqualified Flair for hitting Piper with a foreign object. Following the match Piper immediately fired Flair.Sting fought Goldberg to a no contest. the match was declared a no contest after Bret Hart came out and attacked the referee. After the match, the Steiner Brothers came out and attacked both Sting and Goldberg. In the main event Kevin Nash originally pinned Diamond Dallas Page after a Jacknife Powerbomb. Randy Savage interfered in the match to assist Page, assaulting Nash and hitting him with the title belt. Eric Bischoff came to the ring after Savage interfered, ordered Doug Dillinger to escort Savage out of the building, and then told referee Nick Patrick to restart the match as a no-disqualification match.
