The year was 1992, and World Championship Wrestling was desperately seeking mainstream acceptance.
Thanks to a crop of great performers (Sting, The Steiner Brothers, etc.), constant promotion of the product on TBS and more frequent pay-per-view outings, things were slowly beginning to turn around. WCW was becoming more merchandise savvy, as well, with action figures, its own in-house magazine, and yes....a CD featuring wrestlers' theme music.
Let's be perfectly clear: none of the theme songs on this album were particularly - how shall I put this? - good. Our recent ranking of the Top 50 Wrestling Theme Songs didn't feature a single entry from Slam Jam 1, all of which were themes created specifically for this album. And, as you may have guessed, there was never a Slam Jam 2.
Still, it's always fun to look back on the album's 11 tracks, some 24 years later. Click on the videos below to each track!
