Doom vs. The Steiner Brothers

These masked monsters arrived on the scene as a surprise opponent for The Steiner Brothers during WCW’s Halloween Havoc 1989. The two muscular mysteries lumbered to the ring donning black masks that didn’t do much to hide their identities. Nevertheless, WCW commentators reacted as though they had never before seen the two men.

The pair known as Doom got off on the wrong foot in WCW, losing to the Steiner Brothers in their debut match, followed by a poor showing in the Iron Team Tournament at that year’s Starrcade. Doom’s own fate appeared sealed during  the 10th Clash of the Champions event in early 1990. The tandem put their masks on the line against the Steiners’ WCW Tag Team Titles, only for Rick & Scott to emerge victorious once again. Doom unmasked, to the surprise of few, as Ron Simmons and Butch Reed. (WATCH

As it turned out, unmasking was the best thing that could have ever happened to the pair. Simmons and Reed soon hired Theodore Long as their manager and finally captured the WCW Tag Team Titles shortly after.
