• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 13, 1999) – WCW The Great American Bash 1999
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 13, 1999, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1999’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 13th 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 results from that night:
Hardcore match: Hardcore Hak defeated Brian Knobs
Van Hammer defeated Mikey Whipwreck
Buff Bagwell defeated Disco Inferno
The No Limit Soldiers defeated The West Texas Rednecks
Ernest Miller defeated Horace Hogan
Ric Flair defeated Roddy Piper by DQ
Falls Count Anywhere: Rick Steiner defeated Sting
WCW World Tag Team Championship: Jersey Triad defeated Chris Benoit & Perry Saturn (c)
WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Kevin Nash (c) defeated Randy Savage by DQ
• Former WWE Tag Team Champions Looking To Work With Two Promotions At The Same Time
Former WWE RAW Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson were released by WWE during the budget cuts in April. Their non-compete clause with WWE will come to an end in mid-July, so expect to see them in action soon after that.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that The Good Brothers are looking to sign with two promotions. The first one being NJPW, which would be their main deal, and the second one would be IMPACT Wrestling.
IMPACT Wrestling teased Gallows and Anderson’s appearance at Slammiversary in the promo they aired a couple of weeks ago, so it could be possible they show up at the event, as their non-compete clause would be up by then.
There’s no word on if AEW has shown any interest in them.
