• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (July 12, 1992) – WCW The Great American Bash 1992
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 12, 1992, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1992’ LIVE on PPV from the Albany Civic Center in Albany, Georgia.
This was the 8th edition of WCW’s annual The Great American Bash events, although the 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours of several shows with the best matches making it to the VHS’, that made them being presented like 1 big event in both years, even though they weren’t.
There was no Great American Bash in 1993 & 1994, but after WCW was sold to the World Wrestling Federation in 2001, Vince McMahon brought the pay-per-view back in 2004 under the WWE banner.
The 1992 Bash featured a tournament for the NWA World Tag Team Championship.
The results from that night:
Quarter-final: Nikita Koloff & Ricky Steamboat defeated Jushin Thunder Liger & Brian Pillman
Quarter-final: Hiroshi Hase & Shinya Hashimoto defeated The Fabulous Freebirds
Quarter-final: Dustin Rhodes & Barry Windham defeated Steve Austin & Rick Rude
Semi-final: Terry Gordy & Steve Williams defeated Nikita Koloff & Ricky Steamboat
