• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (July 10, 1988) – NWA The Great American Bash 1988: The Price for Freedom
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 10, 1988, Jim Crockett Promotions aired ‘NWA The Great American Bash 1988: The Price for Freedom’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 4th edition of the annual The Great American Bash events, although the 1986 & 1987 Great American Bash events were actually tours that included several shows with the best matches making it to the official 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.
The results from that night:
– NWA World Tag Team Championship: Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard (c) wrestled Nikita Koloff & Sting to a time-limit-draw
– NWA United States Tag Team Championship: The Midnight Express defeated The Fantastics (c)
– Tower of Doom: The Road Warriors, Jimmy Garvin, Ron Garvin & Steve Williams defeated Al Perez, Ivan Koloff, Kevin Sullivan, Mike Rotunda & The Russian Assassin
– NWA United States Heavyweight Championship: Barry Windham (c) defeated Dusty Rhodes
– NWA World Heavyweight Championship: Ric Flair (c) defeated Lex Luger
• Major Spoiler Regarding Seth Rollins & Becky Lynch’s Title Reigns
Universal Champion Seth Rollins and RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will team up to take on the team of Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans in a “Winner Take All” mixed tag team Extreme Rules match this Sunday at Extreme Rules 2019 PPV.
We have some good news for fans of Rollins & Lynch.
According to Slice Wrestling, not only are Rollins & Lynch expected to retain their Titles this Sunday, but they’re expected to remain champions for the foreseeable future.
Also, there’s a big possibility that both Rollins and Lynch walk into WrestleMania 36 next year as Universal Champion & RAW Women’s Champion respectively. If that happens, then both of them would hold their Titles for almost a full year (WrestleMania 35 took place on April 7, 2019 and WrestleMania 36 is on April 5, 2020).
WWE officials have high hopes for the “real life couple” storyline and they’re gonna use the Rollins-Lynch relationship in future storylines as well.
