WCW Worldwide Wrestling! An In-depth match review!
17 December 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

When WCW was around I always liked to watch this program very late at night on one of the local channels! This weekly WCW event was taped for the weekends at Disney Land, Orlando Florida! It had excellent commentary by Tony Schiavone and the legendary Bobby "the Brain" Heenan! The show had some good matches through out the years but there was one match that I truly loved and that was in the autumn season of 1995 before Halloween Havoc 95. Below is an In-depth match review! The following is all in My opinion!

The match: Dungeon of Doom members The Zodiac (WWF's Brutus Beefcake) and The Ugandan Giant Kamala with The Taskmaster Kevin Sullivan in their corner (Meng was listed on the intro when they came out from the locker rooms but he didn't accompany them) vs. Terry Morgan and Scott D'Amour!

What happened: The wrestling match was fast but it was so cool! The Zodiac kept on brawling with D'Amour and threw him on to the outside. The huge Kamala was just pummeling Morgan with his trademark chops, kicks, and among other tactics! Mean while, Kevin Sullivan hit D'Amour with Kamala's mask across his back! Still outside the ring, The face painted Zodiac put on a camel clutch like hold on Scott (keep in mind the legendary Ugandan warrior is banging Morgan's head and just destroying him!) and the Taskmaster is stomping on D'Amour's fingers! He stomps on them quite hard a couple times! Then Kamala throws Terry into the ropes and thrusts chops him in the throat area and he goes down and holding his throat in pain he turns over and for an agile four-hundred pound monster Kamala splashes him and does another one of his trademarks by covering him on the back and grabs one leg. After a few times of turning the defeated opponent over Kamala finally covers him the correct way and gets the one-two-three!

Winners: The Dungeon of Doom - The Zodiac and The Ugandan Giant Kamala!

After the match: Right after the bell rings in victory for the two unusual wrestlers, The Zodiac is still outside manhandling D'Amour as he is stepping on his throat and he says, YES! NO! YES! NO! to the camera with a hilarious look on his face! In the ring Kevin Sullivan quickly goes on his big back and covers Kamala's eyes near the ropes so Kamala couldn't see and would be tamed down and cause no more destruction on anyone or anything unless ordered to!

Commentary highlight: When The Zodiac has Scott D'Amour in the hold outside the squared circle and Kevin Sullivan just stomps on the fallen foe's fingers for fun and laughs. Booby Heenan laughed at this and said look at that, for no reason, he's stepping on the man's fingers! Isn't that Great!? Tony said to Bobby, what is wrong with them and more importantly what is wrong with you and "The Brain" replied to Schiavone that happened to (Gene) Okerlund last night and somebody stepped on his hands! Schiavone said that's not funny at all and Heenan responded with a ha ha ha ha!

After look: This has always been one of My favorite matches because of the uniqueness of it and plus I adored the era of the WCW in 1995 especially all of the classic moments with the Dungeon of Doom! If you saw this match you know how good it was! In My opinion there will never be anything like this again in the world of wrestling!
