On this day in Pro Wrestling history on May 6, 2001, World Championship Wrestling was set to air ‘WCW The Big Bang’ LIVE on PPV from Las Vegas, Nevada.

This event with the tagline “The Creation Of The New WCW” was supposed to be the first pay-per-view, after Eric Bischoff would have taken over the promotion from AOL Time Warner, which eventually ended up not happening.

After Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling closed its doors in January 2001, quite a few former ECW employees were contacted to join Bischoff’s new WCW.

Joey Styles & Don Callis (Cyrus the Virus) would have been on commentary, while both Rob Van Dam & Steve Corino were rumored to debut as Wrestlers.

Also Bill Goldberg was set to return to the company that night.
