• WWF Legend Trolls Conor McGregor
As we all know, Conor McGregor broke his ankle in the main event of UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier, which resulted in him losing the fight via TKO (Doctor Stoppage).
Old School WWF Legend Kurt Angle, who – as we all know – won an Olympic Gold Medal in 1996 with a ‘broken freakin neck’, went to Twitter to troll the former UFC Two-Division Champion by tweeting the following:
“So… @TheNotoriousMMA broke his freakin’ ankle this past weekend. Big deal. I break my ankle all of the time. I broke my ankle this morning and I’m jumping around right now!! I even won a gold medal with a broken freakin neck too.”

• 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 their rival promotion, the 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.
Below are 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
