Storyline

Hollywood Hogan and Dennis Rodman are out to crash the bash for World Championship Wrestling at this beach. Lex Luger and The Giant team up to battle the nWo's dream team of Hogan and Rodman in a tag team match of epic proportions. The nWo is also out to celebrate their one year anniversary, but WCW will attempt to stop the celebration. Scott Hall and Randy Savage with Miss Elizabeth of the nWo will battle WCW's Diamond Dallas Page and a mystery partner. DDP has hinted for weeks of whom the partner will be. With WCW being the hottest wrestling company in the world, it could be anyone! "Living Legend" Larry Zbyszko and Sting appear to be two of the favorites to take DDP up on his offer. Will it be one of them or someone else, and whoever it is, will it be enough to stop Savage and Hall? "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Ric Flair were friends a month ago battling the nWo as a tag team, but several conflicts have changed that relationship. Flair will battle Piper at the Bash in Daytona.

It was fun to see Rodman wrestle
24 August 2016 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Live from Daytona Beach, FL

Attendance 7,851

Your commentators are Tony Schiavone, Dusty Rhodes & Bobby Heenan

Glacier & Ernest Miller Vs Wrath & Mortis (W/James Vandenberg)

Wrath and Mortis win after Mortis pins Glacier with a kick to the face. Wrath and Mortis win because this crappy feud MUST continue. The only thing resembling excitement in this match was Earnest Miller. It was fun watching him kick people around.

*1/2 out of 5

Cruiserweight Title

Chris Jericho (C) Vs The Ultimo Dragon

Jericho retains. The crowd didn't care for it, but I enjoyed it. It was a bit sloppy at times, but the hard work from both and the excitement is able to overcome that. If you love high-flying action, you should enjoy this match.

*** out of 5

Gene Okerlund seeks out Raven in the crowd and interviews him.

The Steiner Brothers Vs Masahiro Chono & The Great Muta

The Steiner's win. This was actually better than I thought it was gonna be, mainly due to The Steiner's. This was before Scottie's "Big Papa Pump" days and he could actually go inside the ring. I didn't mind this at all.

**1/2 out of 5

Juventud Guerrera, Hector Garza & Lizmark Jr. Vs Psychosis, Villano IV & La Parka (W/Sonny Onoo)

Juventud's team wins. If you love Lucha Libre, this will be right up your alley. It was nothing but a spotfest, but it was admittedly entertaining at times with all the insanity. I can't even count how many times wrestlers flew through the air. There was also a lot of slapstick in this match. Some of the comedy was effective, some of it wasn't.

**1/2 out of 5

Career Vs Career Match

Kevin Sullivan (W/Jacqueline & Jimmy Hart) Vs Chris Beniot

Beniot wins after Jacqueline costs Sullivan the match. As a result, Sullivan's career is over. I thought this was a cheap way to end a match with so much on the line. That said, it was still an intense brawl that succeeded for the most part. Both looked like warriors.

**3/4 out of 5

United States Championship

Jeff Jarrett (C) Vs Steve McMichael (W/Debra)

Jarrett retains after Debra betrays McMichael. This was a pretty ugly match. Jarett did his best to work with McMichael's limitations, but he's no miracle worker. Debra's heel turn was well done, but awfully predictable.

* out of 5

Scott Hall & 'Macho Man' Randy Savage (W/Elizabeth) Vs DDP & Curt Hennig (W/Kimberly)

Hall & Savage win after Hennig turns on DDP. This is the night of the heel turns! It kind of takes away the element of surprise a bit. Hennig received very little reaction here for some reason. Maybe the heel turn was for the best. The match was mediocre.

*1/2 out of 5

'Rowdy' Roddy Piper Vs Ric Flair

Piper wins with the sleeper hold. Considering both were past their prime at this juncture, they managed to put on a decent match. It was built up well and the anticipation was high. I'd love to see what these two are capable of when they were both in their prime. They could probably get **** for sure.

**1/2 out of 5

Hollywood Hogan & Dennis Rodman (W/Randy Savage) Vs Lex Luger & The Giant

Luger and The Giant win after Luger makes Hogan submit to the Torture Rack. In all honesty, this is a pretty crappy match. At the same time, it's an entertaining spectacle as well. I have to admit I was pumped to see Rodman get in the ring. I am getting tired of all the 'fake' Sting's. How many times are the announcers gonna fall for the fake sting stuff. It's getting comical. Overall, part of me enjoyed the match, the other part of me loathed it.

*1/2 out of 5

This PPV was OK. The main event has a strange sort of charm to it at times, even if it was crappy. This PPV is worth a watch once.

5.5/10
