barry windham


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.
