• RAW Becoming A TV-14 Show Again Is Not WWE’s Decision

As we all know by now, WWE RAW is set to go back to the TV-14 rating after 14 years.

However, as originally reported, it might not happen as soon as next week.

According to the Wrestling Observer, RAW going from TV-PG to TV-14 is USA Network’s decision, not WWE’s decision:

“I would think that if they do it to RAW, they’ll do it to NXT. I think it’d be across the board. I don’t think it should be one show. Why do one show? SmackDown would be up to FOX.

At the end of the day, this is a USA call, not a WWE call. Again, if FOX wants it, yeah. In both cases, it’s up to FOX and it’s up to USA. They’re the ones making the call. In fact, on this one, I was basically told, ‘It’s USA’s call.’

So, it’s not like Vince [McMahon] said this. I mean, obviously, Vince has to green light it. But, it’s USA, for whatever reason. If they want it that way and they think it’ll hurt sponsorship, maybe they won’t want it that way.

I could see WWE going like, ‘Oh, God, on TNT, they’re allowed to say sh*t, and we say it and it’s bleeped out. Let’s change that. It’s such a minor thing, but absolutely they would want to do that.”

• ON THIS DAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY (July 16, 1995) – WCW Bash at the Beach 1995

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 16, 1995, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Bash at the Beach 1995’ LIVE on PPV from the Beach in Huntington Beach, California.

This was the 2nd out of 7 annual Bash at the Beach pay-per-views the WCW aired from 1994 to 2000.

This marks the first, the last & the only Professional Wrestling PPV that has ever happened on an actual beach instead of inside an arena.

But not only the World Championship Wrestling cameras were filming the event, the two main events of the show were also shown on an episode of the TV Show Baywatch featuring David Hasselhoff & Pamela Anderson.

The only possible excuse for not doing another PPV on the beach could be that none of the 9,500 people in attendance paid any money to see it. Other than that the PPV had a great & special feeling to it, not so much because of the actual matches (they weren’t bad at all though) but because of the great California beach atmosphere.

Here are the results from that night:

WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Sting (c) defeated Meng

WCW World Television Championship: The Renegade (c) defeated Paul Orndorff

Kamala defeated Jim Duggan

Diamond Dallas Page defeated Dave Sullivan

Triple threat – WCW World Tag Team Championship: Harlem Heat (c) defeated The Nasty Boys and The Blue Bloods

Lifeguard match: Randy Savage defeated Ric Flair

Steel Cage – WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Hulk Hogan (c) defeated Vader
