• WWE RAW Moving To A TV-14 Rating, PG-Era Coming To An End

WWE turned PG in mid-2008. After a 14 year run, the PG-Era is finally coming to an end.

According to Andrew Zarian, RAW will go back to being a TV-14 program starting next week.

Prior to the PG-Era, WWE/WWF had some of its most famous eras and that’s when they had a lot of viewers:

– Golden Era (1984 to 1992)

– New Generation Era (1993 to 1997)

– Attitude Era (late-1997 to 2001)

– Ruthless Aggression Era (2002 to 2007)

With RAW moving back to a TV-14 rating, what can the fans expect? Well, if we’re going by the old standards, then expect the following things to return:

– More edgy content

– More $exual content

– More violence

– Use of blood in matches

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (July 14, 1991) – WCW The Great American Bash 1991

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on July 14, 1991, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1991’ LIVE on PPV from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

This was the 7th 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 1991, Great American Bash was the first PPV produced by WCW after the shocking departure of WCW World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair, who took the WCW World Title belt and went to the rivaled World Wrestling Federation.

Wrestlers didn’t put much effort into their matches in protest of Flair’s departure & the crowd chanted “We want Flair” throughout the night. Many fans consider this as one of the worst PPVs of the Old School Wrestling era.

The results from that night:

Capture-The-Flag Scaffold match: P.N. News and Bobby Eaton defeated Steve Austin and Terrance Taylor

The Diamond Studd defeated Tom Zenk

Ron Simmons defeated Oz

Richard Morton defeated Robert Gibson

Elimination: Dustin Rhodes and The Young Pistols defeated The Fabulous Freebirds

The Yellow Dog defeated Johnny B. Badd by DQ

Lumberjack: Big Josh defeated Black Blood

El Gigante defeated One Man Gang

Russian Chain: Nikita Koloff defeated Sting

Steel Cage – Vacant WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Lex Luger defeated Barry Windham

Steel Cage: Rick Steiner defeated Arn Anderson & Paul E. Dangerously
