• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 9, 1997) – WCW ROAD WILD 1997
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 9, 1997, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Road Wild 1997’ LIVE on PPV from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.
This was the second out of a total of 4 annual WCW events (1996-1999) from the Sturgis Harley Davidson Rally, and while all four events are usually destroyed by the critics for not drawing a cent in revenue money because it was totally free for the bikers in attendance, they were still pretty cool & entertaining to watch for a fan, as big outdoor events always had that kind of a special feeling to them.
Here are the results:
Harlem Heat defeated Vicious and Delicious
Mexican Death match: Konnan defeated Rey Misterio Jr.
Elimination: Steve McMichael & Chris Benoit defeated Jeff Jarrett & Dean Malenko
WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Alex Wright (c) defeated Chris Jericho
Ric Flair defeated Syxx
Curt Hennig defeated Diamond Dallas Page
The Giant defeated Randy Savage
WCW World Tag Team Championship: The Steiner Brothers defeated The Outsiders (c) by DQ
WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Hollywood Hogan defeated Lex Luger (c)
