• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 18, 1995) – WCW The Great American Bash 1995
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 18, 1995, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1995’ LIVE on PPV from the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio.
This was the 9th 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.
Below are the results from that night:
– Alex Wright defeated Brian Pillman
– Arm Wrestling: Dave Sullivan defeated Diamond Dallas Page
– Jim Duggan defeated Sgt. Craig Pittman by DQ
– Harlem Heat defeated Dick Slater & Bunkhouse Buck
– WCW World Television Championship: The Renegade defeated Arn Anderson (c)
– WCW World Tag Team Championship: The Nasty Boys (c) defeated The Blue Bloods
– Vacant WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Sting defeated Meng
– Ric Flair defeated Randy Savage
• Jim Cornette Says SmackDown Wrestler Is An ‘Annoying F*cker’
While speaking on his podcast, Jim Cornette was asked if Sami Zayn would make a good agent in WWE. Like every other time, Cornette went on to rant about how annoying Zayn is.
Below is what he said:
“You can’t f*cking get this guy to stop arguing about the goddamn, you know, f*cking what you’re gonna have for lunch to determine whether or not the whole group is gonna starve or not.
He’s on minute little details that he won’t f*cking let go. He’s a pain in the a** and as an agent, my God, he’s an agent’s worst nightmare because I’ve tried to agent him.
He’s a personable but annoying f*cker in person and you know he came straight off the independents where he had to do his sh*t and he had to die on every hill.”
