• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (July 23, 1989) – NWA The Great American Bash 1989: The Glory Days
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 23, 1989, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘NWA The Great American Bash 1989: The Glory Days’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 5th 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, eventho 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:
– The Skyscrapers won a Two Ring King of the Hill Battle Royal
