• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 14, 1999) – WCW ROAD WILD 1999
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 14, 1999, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW Road Wild 1999’ LIVE on PPV from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota.
This was the last one out of a total of 4 annual WCW events (1996-1999) from the Sturgis Harley Davidson Rally, and while all four events are usually destroyed by the critics for not earning a cent in revenue money because it was totally free for the bikers in attendance, they were still pretty cool & entertaining to watch for a fan, as big outdoor events always had kind of a special feeling to them.
This also marks “The Macho Man” Randy Savage’s last ever WCW PPV match. After this day, he only appeared on 2 more Wrestling PPVs, years later at TNA Victory Road 2004 & TNA Turning Point 2004, before he passed away in 2011.
Here are the results:
Rey Mysterio Jr., Billy Kidman & Eddie Guerrero defeated Vampiro & Insane Clown Posse
WCW World Tag Team Championship: Harlem Heat defeated Kanyon and Bam Bam Bigelow (c)
The Revolution defeated The West Texas Rednecks
Buff Bagwell defeated Ernest Miller
No DQ – WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Chris Benoit (c) defeated Diamond Dallas Page
Sid Vicious defeated Sting
Goldberg defeated Rick Steiner
Randy Savage defeated Dennis Rodman
Retirement match – WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Hulk Hogan (c) defeated Kevin Nash
