• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 15, 1997) – WCW The Great American Bash 1997
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 15, 1997, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1997’ LIVE on PPV from the The MARK of the Quad in Moline, Illinois.
This was the 11th 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:
– Ultimate Dragon defeated Psychosis
– Harlem Heat defeated The Steiner Brothers by DQ
– Konnan defeated Hugh Morrus
– Glacier defeated Wrath
– WCW Women’s Championship vs. Career: Akira Hokuto (c) defeated Madusa
– Death match: Chris Benoit defeated Meng
– Kevin Greene defeated Steve McMichael
– WCW World Tag Team Championship: The Outsiders (c) (with Syxx) defeated Ric Flair & Roddy Piper
– Falls Count Anywhere: Randy Savage defeated Diamond Dallas Page
• WWE Planned On Doing 3 Undertaker vs. Goldberg Matches In 2019
As seen at WWE Super ShowDown 2019, The Undertaker defeated Goldberg in the main event with a Chokeslam in their “First Time Ever” bout.
According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE originally planned on doing 3 matches between The Undertaker & Goldberg in 2019.
This is the reason why their match at WWE Super ShowDown 2019 was billed as a “First Time Ever” match and not “Once In A Lifetime”.
WWE planned on doing their second match at SummerSlam 2019, where Goldberg would’ve defeated Undertaker.
The rubber match would’ve then taken place inside Hell in a Cell at Hell In A Cell 2019 PPV.
No word yet on if these plans are still on the table after what happened at Super ShowDown.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
