• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 11, 2000) – WCW The Great American Bash 2000
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 11, 2000, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 2000’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.
This was the 14th and final one 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 it seem like 1 big event in both years.
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:
– WCW Cruiserweight Championship: Lt. Loco (c) defeated Disqo
