• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 18, 1995) – WCW The Great American Bash 1995
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 18, 1995, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired ‘WCW The Great American Bash 1995’ LIVE on PPV from the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio.
This was the 9th 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:
– Alex Wright defeated Brian Pillman
– Arm Wrestling: Dave Sullivan defeated Diamond Dallas Page
– Jim Duggan defeated Sgt. Craig Pittman by DQ
– Harlem Heat defeated Dick Slater & Bunkhouse Buck
– WCW World Television Championship: The Renegade defeated Arn Anderson (c)
– WCW World Tag Team Championship: The Nasty Boys (c) defeated The Blue Bloods
– Vacant WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Sting defeated Meng
– Ric Flair defeated Randy Savage
• WWE Wrestlers Not Happy With Shane McMahon’s Push
According to Fightful, WWE wrestlers aren’t happy with how much TV time “The Best In The World” Shane McMahon is getting with his push.
Below is what Fightful reported:
“We’ve not heard of Shane being criticized personally, but that the decision to heavily feature Shane McMahon in the middle of a Wild Card scenario that already limits screen time for others is infuriating.”
Speaking of Shane O’Mac’s push, WrestleVotes recently noted that it wouldn’t be surprising if Shane ends up defeating Kofi Kingston to become the WWE Champion.
I’ve asked what the payoff is to this major Shane McMahon push & TV time allotment. No one seems to have a solid answer. One source said he could see (JUST HIS SPECULATION HERE) Shane being the one to defeat Kofi for the title. That would be something.
