Vince McMahon Shoots Down An Idea For Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt WWE Champion & Husky Harris

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 14, 1998) – WCW The Great American Bash 1998

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 14, 1998, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1998’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

This was the 12th 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, 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:

– Final in the Best-of-7-series for the #1 contender (TV title): Booker T defeated Chris Benoit

– Kanyon defeated Perry Saturn

– Vacant WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Chris Jericho defeated Dean Malenko by DQ

– Juventud Guerrera defeated Reese

– Chavo Guerrero Jr. defeated Eddie Guerrero

– WCW World Television Championship: Booker T defeated Fit Finlay (c)

– WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Goldberg (c) defeated Konnan

– Hollywood Hogan & Bret Hart defeated Roddy Piper & Randy Savage

– Roddy Piper defeated Randy Savage

– WCW World Tag Team Championship: Sting defeated The Giant

• Vince McMahon Shoots Down An Idea For Bray Wyatt

According to Slice Wrestling, an idea was recently pitched about Bray Wyatt going after the WWE 24/7 Championship, but Vince McMahon quickly shot it down.

While the WWE 24/7 Title is a hit with the fans (and views on YouTube don’t lie either), Vince McMahon wants to protect Wyatt’s new gimmick and wants him to be a much more intimidating character moving forward (while the 24/7 Title is a comedy thing).

Speaking of Wyatt, below is his recent Twitter exchange with AEW’s Chris Jericho:
