• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 14, 1999) – WCW ROAD WILD 1999
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 14, 1999, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Road Wild 1999’ LIVE on PPV from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.
This was the last one 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 earning 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 kind of a special feeling to them.
This also marks “The Macho Man” Randy Savage’s last ever WCW PPV match. After this day, he only appeared on 2 more Wrestling PPVs, but years later: TNA Victory Road 2004 & TNA Turning Point 2004, before he passed away in 2011.
Here are the results:
– Rey Misterio Jr., Billy Kidman & Eddie Guerrero defeated Vampiro & Insane Clown Posse
– WCW World Tag Team Championship
Harlem Heat defeated Kanyon and Bam Bam Bigelow (c)
– The Revolution defeated The West Texas Rednecks
– Buff Bagwell defeated Ernest Miller
– No DQ – WCW United States Heavyweight Championship
Chris Benoit (c) defeated Diamond Dallas Page
– Sid Vicious defeated Sting
– Goldberg defeated Rick Steiner
– Randy Savage defeated Dennis Rodman
– Retirement match – WCW World Heavyweight Championship
Hulk Hogan (c) defeated Kevin Nash

TMZ Sports recently interviewed former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore and he was asked about a possible return to wrestling.

“Not in a million years. Nobody’s got enough money to put me back in the ring, kid. Not unless I’m fighting Creed. To be honest me and 50 Cent vs Adonis and Rocky that’s all I got right now.”
