This Day in WCW History: Barry Windham completes his 14 year climb to World Championship glory when he evades two moonsaults from The Great Muta and lands an Implant DDT to put away the ferocious fighter and win his first NWA World Heavyweight Championship at SuperBrawl III.
This Day in WCW History: Following an accidental collision into Ricky Steamboat, Dustin Rhodes refuses to follow Barry Windham’s command to go in for the kill on his former partner, leading to a blow up between Rhodes and Windham that allows Shane Douglas to connect with a belly-to-belly suplex to win he and Steamboat’s first NWA & WCW World Tag Team Championships at Clash of Champions XXI.
When I was like 10 I traded some figure for this one. ECW was really popping at the time (1998) and I thought “nobody has a Shane Douglas toy, I’m gonna be the man!”.
I thought the silver shit was a fuck up, so I took my mom’s nail polish and painted the black parts yellow and the silver parts black. It was perfect. Like 10 years later I found out it was Barry Windham.
