Storyline

This year's Great American Bash is going to be just that, a bash taking place in the heartland of America. The event this year is headlined by three grudge matches. Diamond Dallas Page got the win over Randy Savage two months prior at WCW Spring Stampede, now Savage wants revenge in a lights out match. Who will win Page-Savage II? In other action, Ric Flair and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper will unite and attempt to take down the nWo's heart by challenging The Outsiders for the WCW Tag Team Championship. Syxx will be in the Outsider's corner, but will he be enough to keep down the veterans of the sport? The third grudge match that will be settled in Moline on June 15th will be a WCW Women's Championship Match between Japan Legend, Akiro Hokuto with the devious Sonny Onoo in her corner going up against Madusa. The Great American Bash is one of the most historic events in pro wrestling, and one thing is for sure, that tradition will continue in Moline! Written by MRR

Average Bash
24 March 2014 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

1. Respect Match: Psychosis Vs. Ultimate Dragon - Dragon won in a nice match. Psychosis's suicide dive or Dragons' outstanding Moonsault were highlights. 8.5/10

2. Harlem Heat Vs. The Steiner Brothers - We saw that match hundred times, but GAB 1997 was decent bout. Hey Scotty, do you remember Frankensteiner? 8/10

3. Hugh Morrus Vs. Konan - Konan is super-idiot. You couldn't like him for wrestling skills. And his presentation is awful. God, after watching: Konan even didn't let Morrus perform Moonsault, cus afraid of not manage to sidestep. Terrible wrestler. Poor Morrus tried hard. For him only: 6/10

4. Wrath Vs. The most hated wrestler (rightfully): Glacier - Catastrofically bad. One bad nightmare. 5/10

5. Akira Hokuto Vs. Madusa - Big lol, Madusa loses everything :D Hokuto technically worked on Madusa's left knee and clearly won. 6/10

6. Meng Vs. Chris Benoit - Rematch, huh? Yes Benoit made Meng submit to Crippler Crossface. Smell of real hurting there. :/ 6.5/10

7. Kevin Greene Vs. Steve McMichael - Well waste of time. 2-non wrestlers tried to act like they was. 5/10

8. WCW Tag Team Title match: Champs-The Outsiders Vs. Ric Flair/Pajpá - Flair went background and Piper ate Crucifix Powerbomb. Weird booking. 5.5/10

9. Macho Man Vs. Diamond Dallas Page - It was obvious that Page lose this match, yet won that previous and that on Nitro. Funny fact was that hardcore thing on the entrance ramp. Broken plates by Savage's head. With Hall's help Macho won. 7/10
