• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (July 26, 1986) – NWA The Great American Bash 1986
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 26, 1986, Jim Crockett Promotions held one of 13 (!!!) ‘NWA The Great American Bash 1986’ House Shows at the Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours that included several shows with the best matches making it to the official VHS, that made them being presented like 1 big event in both years, even though they weren’t.
In 1985, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 & 2000 The Great American Bash events were regular PPVs.
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.
