• Which WWF Champion Had The Highest Credibility In The Eyes Of Vince McMahon?
During Bret Hart’s A&E Biography, Vince McMahon said that he thinks Bret Hart had the most credibility as the WWF Champion.
Here’s what Vince said about The Hitman:
“Although he is very technical, very sound, very believable, Bret was not as big as some of our other performers. But, Bret stayed in there and hung in there, and eventually, everyone recognized his skill and the rest is history.
Bret is an unusual cat. Man, that was a real champion. The credibility factor with Bret, I think, will be the highest of anyone we ever had as champion.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 16, 1996) – WCW The Great American Bash 1996
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 16, 1996, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1996’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 10th 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.
The results from that night:
The Steiner Brothers defeated Fire and Ice
WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Konnan (c) defeated El Gato
