• Roman Reigns’ WrestleMania 38 Opponent
For a while it seemed like plans for a future Roman Reigns vs. The Rock dream match were cancelled, similar to how the biggest dream match of all time, The Undertaker vs. Sting never ended up taking place in WWE.
However, now it appears that WWE is currently working on making the match the main event for WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington (near Dallas), Texas, the same stadium that drew a record crowd of 101,763 fans at WrestleMania 32 in 2016. They are actually attempting to break that record in 2022, as long as the COVID-19 situation is fully under control by then.
Here’s what an update from the Wrestling Observer:
“Obviously The Rock & Roman Reigns is something that they’re building towards and it would be, every year gets tougher and tougher because Dwayne gets a year older and, you know, but I think he really wants to do a match against Roman Reigns.
I think for sure it’ll be in next two WrestleManias, and if he can pull it off, the next WrestleMania.”
We recently reported that WWE is trying to bring back The Rock for this year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view, which marks the 25th anniversary of his World Wrestling Federation debut as Rocky Maivia at Survivor Series 1996.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 13, 1999) – WCW The Great American Bash 1999
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 13, 1999, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1999’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 13th 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, even though 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:
Hardcore match: Hardcore Hak defeated Brian Knobs
Van Hammer defeated Mikey Whipwreck

The No Limit Soldiers defeated The West Texas Rednecks

Ric Flair defeated Roddy Piper by DQ
