Below you will find everything that happened in Professional Wrestling history on May 17th.



On this day in Pro Wrestling history on May 17, 1998, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Slamboree 1998’ LIVE on PPV from The Centrum in Worcester, Massachusetts.

This was the 6th Slamboree pay-per-view out of 8 that WCW aired between 1993 and 2000.

The event featured Scott Hall (fka Razor Ramon) turning on his long-time tag team partner Kevin Nash (fka Diesel), as well as Eric Bischoff’s invitation for WWF promoter Vince McMahon to wrestle him on this WCW PPV.

McMahon obviously ignored that challenge, so Bischoff “won the match” via forfeit.

The results can be found here:

WCW World Television Championship: Fit Finlay (c) defeated Chris Benoit

Lex Luger defeated Brian Adams

Dean Malenko won a #1 contender (CW Title) Battle Royal

WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Dean Malenko defeated Chris Jericho (c)
