The Dungeon Of Doom

Sports Team

The Dungeon of Doom was the name of a heel professional wrestling stable in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) that existed from 1995 to 1997.

The Dungeon of Doom was created as a stable of wrestlers born from WCW lead producer Kevin Sullivan's (kayfabe) hatred of Hulk Hogan and was dedicated to ridding WCW of Hulkamania. The stable was a direct continuation of Sullivan's previous stable The Three Faces of Fear which had a similar goal. The actual goal was the opposite. Sullivan stated in 2016, "It was a means to an end. I knew Hogan was being booed. I knew when I saw The nWo, it was the best chance anybody had to turn Hogan. I said, "You gotta trust me." And he did. I [agree with] Satchel Paige. "Don't look back. Something may be gaining on you." You can't change the past. The end justified the means, so in that way, it worked."

After Sullivan defeated The Man with No Name at Slamboree in 1995, The Master told Sullivan he was "The Taskmaster" of the Dungeon of Doom and that the task was to destroy Hulkamania. The group initially consisted of people with rather bizarre and “horrifying” gimmicks such as The Shark (who had teamed with Sullivan before as "Avalanche"), KamalaThe Ugandan Giant”, The Zodiac (who had also teamed with Sullivan before as "The Butcher"), Meng (who was Col. Robert Parker's bodyguard), and Big Van Vader who also sought to destroy Hulkamania and began his “Road Kill Tour” which consisted of a series of squash matches that would lead to his destruction of Hogan. After Vader lost to Hogan, the Master revealed that it was etched in stone that a Giant would destroy HulkaMania, thus leading to several encounters with The Giant, who, claimed to be the son of André the Giant and was out for revenge on Hogan for defeating his father.
