Hollywood Hogan - Big win, brotherjackdude.
Sting - Gotta build Stinger for that epic finale.
DDP
Nasty Boys - It would seem like the Warriors should just run over the Nastys, but the Nastys have the backing of the ToW. They should pick up the Tag belts, unless you plan on sending them out.
The Giant - Awesome will look good in defeat.
Time Limit Draw - Good pick up with Martel, this should be a great title match to prop up the undercard a little.
Lex Luger - Solid win for the Package.
Chris Benoit
Goldberg

Week 2, July 1997
Cox Arena (San Diego, California)
ATT: 12,000
PPV BUY: 1.49
Announce Team: Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan


Quote:




It’s time for the first WCW Pay Per View of the Russo Regime.......and since the set here at the Cox Arena has been decked out like something straight out of Baywatch, that can mean only one thing......it’s time for the Bash at the Beach 1997......Tony Schiavone welcomes us to the show, along with the team of “The Professor” Mike Tenay and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan......and frankly they all look ridiculous decked out in gaudy Hawaiian shirts.....with Heenan going so far as to be wearing a large sun hat with a big covering of pink sun cream on his nose. They talk briefly about the upcoming show, promising a hot night here in SoCal, stating that the action already heated up earlier in the day, with the Bash ON the Beach, Battle Royal taking place on the beautiful Imperial Beach....where Buff Bagwell came out victorious....with Bobby Heenan letting everybody know that not only is Buff the Stuff, but he's also one to watch around here......

......Schiavone says that while that may well be true, the one to watch around here tonight is going to be our main event......because while Hollywood may have been the man around here for the last six months, using the Titans of Wrestling to ensure his iron grip stays firmly wrapped around the WCW Championship, the Titans don't appear to be quite the cohesive unit they once were.....in fact if anything, Jean Paul Levesque is beginning to question whether Hollywood Hogan should be the man around here.......or whether it should be Mr. Levesque himself.....and all that animosity has left the front door open.....all Rowdy Roddy Piper has to do, is walk right in and take the prize......

Rating: N/A

VS.

The first match of the evening sees a Giant facing of against a man with a giant chip on his shoulder.....as Mike Awesome continues his quest to prove to the world that he's the best big man in wrestling today. He's already left his mark on two of the best big men in wrestling's yesterday, (and two former WCW Champions) in Bam Bam Bigelow and Vader.....but with the upmost respect, while both of those gentlemen can still go, you could hardly say they are in their prime.....tonight's opponent however is an entirely different matter.......because the seven foot Giant is barely 25 years old, and has a lot of years left in him yet.....

......and it appears that Awesome may have bitten off even more than he can chew here, because the Giant shrugs off all of Awesome's offence, including a running clothesline that would have decapitated most people.....the Giant isn't most people however, and while it does rock the big man, not enough to put him down....and the Giant answers with a running clothesline of his own that DOES put Awesome on his ass....

.....that's not to say Awesome doesn't impress during this, after all he's not the self proclaimed "best big man in the business" for nothing.....and he uses his deceptively quick agility to sidestep the rampaging Giant, who crashes chest first into the turnbuckles on a corner splash attempt, before finally dropping the wobbling seven footer with a clothesline from the top rope. From there Awesome does his best to keep his opponent grounded, after all, being seven foot tall doesn't matter when you're flat on your back.....of course, PUTTING the Giant on his back and KEEPING the Giant on his back are two entirely different things....and it was only a matter of time before the Giant got back to an offensive position.....

......and from then it descended into an out and out brawl, as these two battled for superiority, and it looked as though it was going to be a very bad night for Awesome......especially when the Giant wrapped a big hand around his throat......it looks like it's Chokeslam time here tonight.......except it wasn't........because it was just at that time that a rather over enthusiastic fan in a hooded top hops the rail and dashes into the ring with a steel chair......

.......dropping down to their knees behind the unsuspecting Giant, this "fan" delivers a low blow to the seven footer.....who releases Awesome.....just as the "fan" hands him the steel chair.....which Awesome in turn smashes over the head of his opponent, leaving the official no choice but to call for the bell.

Winner: The Giant (via Disqualification)
Rating: B

Quote:




Not that Awesome seems overly concerned with his loss.....as he nails the Giant again.....and again......and again......until finally the big man is flat on his back in the middle of the ring....which is when the hooded fan takes the chair from the hands of Awesome, placing it on the chest of the Giant, before pointing up to the top turnbuckle.....

....quick to comply, Awesome climbs the ropes and raises his arms in triumph, before leaping off with a mighty Awesome Splash, driving both his own weight and the stationary steel chair into the chest of the Giant, who is truly down and out here.....

......to be fair, that took quite a bit out of Awesome too, as he stays down on the mat beside the Giant, clutching at his midsection.....the difference is, Awesome has a "fan" there to help him stand to his feet......and rather bizarrely give him a big hug too.......although it does become a slightly less bizarre sight when that "fan" pulls the hooded top off........







































.......to reveal a rather more scantily clad Missy Hyatt......and Schiavone has a mini aneurism at the sight of "the walking riot", demanding to know "...what is she doing here?......the last I heard, she was managing drunks in bingo halls....."

.......and she may well have been.....but it looks as though the Sandman is going to have to find a new valet, because Missy Hyatt is here in WCW.....and apparently Mike Awesome has secured her services.....good decision Mike, because you can't talk for sh!t.....at least now your interview segments won't entirely suck.

Speaking of interview segments, we go to the back now, where Mean Gene is standing by with the Television Champion, Lord Steven Regal (along with his Gentlemen at Arms, Earl Robert Easton and The Duke, Douglas Williams.) this is really nothing more than a quick two minute segment to fill time while the Giant is making his way to the back.....Gene says that one could argue that was it not for the interference of Easton and Williams, it could well be Brad Armstrong standing here tonight with the WCW Television Title around HIS waist.....

......Regal tells Gene not to be so absurd....stating that the Earl and the Duke are the very epitome of gentlemanly conduct....obviously they are not infallible.....

"......I mean, nobody is perfect Gene......with the exception of Her Majesty The Queen obviously......and if they "accidentally" happened to have caused Mr. Armstrong to lose, well......while I'm sure that while they would be deeply saddened by that, they can't be held to account for one little mistake......everyone makes mistakes......just like Rick Martel made a mistake demanding this match tonight......"

.....Regal says that Mr. Martel has been out of the business for a few years now....and stepping into the ring with a man of the ability of his Lordship, well....that's just madness....but if he insists on carrying on with this charade, then the Blue Bloods shall have to show him the error of his ways.

VS.

His Lordship isn't wrong, Rick Martel hasn't stepped foot inside a wrestling ring for over two years now, since his World Wrestling Federation run came to an end....while Regal has been wrestling consistently (for WCW) for the last four years.....holding the WCW Television Championship for a quarter of that time.....so asking Martel to to come out victorious here tonight is a big ask....especially when you factor in Eaton and Williams on the outside as well.....

.....of course, Martel is a veteran of the game.....he also no stranger to bending the rules himself, so he's a little more aware of how to neutralise the threat that the Earl and The Duke pose at ringside than Brad Armstrong was....and this was a good match too.....and considering the fact that Martel has been a cocky arrogant heel ever since turning his back on Chico Santana back in 1989, the fans here in WCW seem to have accepted this babyface return.....but then, there's a good chance they would cheer anyone who was in there against the stuck up Steven Regal.....

.....and they were cheering all the more when Martel was able to turn Regal over in the Boston Crab.......slap bang in the middle of the road too, so there is nowhere for Regal to go......and the pompous Brit looks to be only seconds away from conceding the match.......which is when the Gentlemen Rouges on the outside, Eaton and Williams, storm into the ring to break up the hold, drawing the disqualification in the process as they quickly grab their Nobel Peer and drag him to the outside (picking up the Television Title on the way) and disappear quickly up the aisle.....Martel picks up a big debut win, but it's not the win he wanted.

Winner: Rick Martel (via Disqualification)..........however, Championships can ONLY change hands via pinfall or submission.......therefore Still WCW Television Champion.....Lord Steven Regal.

We go straight to the back from there, where Mean Gene shills the hotline....(you know the number by now, 1-900-909-9900)......stating that the deals are almost done......and you can get all the dirt on exactly WHO will be jumping ship to WCW, for just $1.59 a minute.....and one man who knows ALL the dirt, is the man making those deals, Gene's guest right now, Vince Russo......Gene says that we have just seen one Championship match.....there are four more to go.....and with the exception of the Giant (who wasn't entered into the Television Title tournament) ALL the former Champions have made it to the finals of their respective tournaments.......leaving Gene to question, if we potentially leave this evening with all the Championships back with their previous owners.....what was the point of vacating them to begin with?........

......Vince says that the reason, was to create an even playing field around here, he says that for too long WCW has been the "good old boys" club.....with talented up and coming stars not being given the title opportunities against the established hierarchy......how many tag team title opportunities would a Juventud Guerrera and a Super Crazy got?......most people run a mile from the thought of Mike Awesome chasing their gold.....how many US title shots would he have got?.....Brad Armstrong may not be an up and coming star, but when was the last time he received ANY title opportunity? Vince says that we may well see the same Champions at the end of the night that we saw at the start of the regime......BUT, the opportunity was there.....and that's what WCW is going to stand for from here on in......opportunity.

VS.

Our next match sees two men that don't have a great deal of chemistry in the slightest in action.....in fact, their matches are damn right awkward....but, they'd started something, so they may as well finish it.....plus, I didn't have anything any better for either man right now....(to be fair, I'm unlikely to ever have anything better for Wallstreet. Benoit I'm sure can be a big player, but Wallstreet, he's going to be more of a jobber to the stars at this stage of his career)........

.......with that being said, you got pretty much what you would expect from this one.....some time filled, some decent action.....and Benoit winning clean with the Crossface.

Winner: Chris Benoit
Rating: C+

Back to Gene now, who's standing by with the Road Warriors....who are looking to add some new gold to their already impressive resume.....with Gene saying that a victory here tonight will make the Road Warriors the only team in history to hold the AWA Tag Team Titles, the NWA Tag Team Titles.....the WWF Tag Team Titles......and finally, the WCW Tag Team Titles......Animal says that right, they've been at the top of the mountain around here before, but they never held those WCW Titles.....well tonight, that's all going to change.....because they've beat the Nasty's before to win gold, and tonight, they're gonna do it again......"TELL 'EM HAWK".......

"........WELLLLLLLL.........MEAN GENE...........DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH WE LIKE FIGHTING THE NASTY BOYS?.........THEY'RE OUR FAVOURITE TEAM TO FACE, BESIDES EVERY OTHER TEAM WE'VE EVER FACED........YOU KNOW WHY?........ITS BECAUSE THEY SMELL LIKE THREE DAY OLD GUTTED TROUT................LOOK LIKE IT TOO............THE NASTY BOYS ARE THE REASON GOD STOPPED TALKING TO US......BUT THATS OK......BECAUSE TONIGHT, WE'RE GOING TO HIT THEM SO HARD, WE'LL KNOCK THEIR SPIRITS STRAIGHT UP TO THE BIG MAN HIMSELF.........AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S GONNA TELL 'EM?.........UHHHHHHHHH.....WHAT A RUSHHHH!!!

VS.

Back in 1991 the Road Warriors made history by becoming one of the few teams to have captured both the NWA and WWF World Tag Team Titles, when they defeated the Nasty Boys at Summerslam.....now, six years later the Nasty Boys are again the only thing standing in the way of Hawk and Animal adding the WCW World Tag Team Title to that list.....except this time, the Nasty’s have some serious back up in the form of the Titan’s of Wrestling.....but then, with the exception of Jean Paul Levesque, the Titans are all in action tonight....so their collective attention may well be elsewhere tonight.....

.......you would be forgiven if you didn’t have particularly high expectations for this match, especially given the participants involved......because while The Road Warriors have never failed to garner a reaction from the crowd, they aren’t exactly known for their five star classics.....and as for the Nasty’s, they are about as far removed from technical wizards as you can get......but in all honesty, this was a pretty good match......Hawk and Animal are more comfortable in a brawl than in a wrestling match, and Knobbs and Saggs are more than happy to oblige.....

......in the end however, this match went down much the same way as their Summerslam encounter did, with Saggs eating a Doomsday Device.....and with the rest of the Titan’s of Wrestling surprisingly absent from ringside, there was nothing Knobbs could do to prevent Road Warrior Animal from making the cover.....and just like that, we have brand new WCW Tag Team Champions.

Winner(s): ........and New WCW World Tag Team Champions.....The Road Warriors
Rating: B

Quote:




The Enforcer, Ray Traylor makes his way out next for his clash with the Total Package Lex Luger.......while the Road Warriors have departed to the back however, taking their brand new Tag Team Titles with them, the Nasty’s have remained at ringside......where they appear to be having a difference of opinions with Traylor, with the nearby camera picking up on the fact that it would seem that Knobbs and Saggs aren’t happy that Traylor wasn’t there at ringside during their match with Hawk and Animal......questioning what sort of Enforcer he is......

.......Traylor tells the Nastys that they aren’t the only ones with matches tonight.....he has Lex Luger to worry about, before saying that the real question shouldn’t be what sort of Enforcer HE is......the question should be, if they can’t beat the Road Warriors without HIS help, then what sort of Titans of Wrestling are THEY......

......that p!sses the Nasty’s off, who tell Traylor that they at least have held some gold around here.....what was the last Title he held?.....before sarcastically wishing him “good luck” in his match as they storm off to the back.

VS.

That match is indeed next, as the Total Package Lex Luger faces off against The Enforcer Ray Traylor, who’s really found a new lease of life here in his role with the Titans after a slew of questionable gimmicks here......gone is The Boss.....The Guardian Angel and Big Bubba.....this is Ray Traylor doing what bought him to the dance....beating people up.....

.......his opponent tonight may have some “Titan” experience of his own, but this isn’t the Narcissus or the All American......this is the Total Package, and World Championship Wrestling is in his blood.....which is why he is so intent on taking the fight to the Titans of Wrestling......a group that see themselves as bigger than WCW.....badder than WCW......and yes, better than WCW......a claim that Lex has taken very personally.....

.....this match wasn’t great truth be told....it wasn’t horrible, but these two just didn’t match up well at all.....their chemistry was terrible and their timing was all over the place......thankfully it didn’t last too long.....and much like our previous contest, the rest of the Titans of Wrestling were surprisingly absent from ringside, as Luger hoisted Traylor up on his shoulders for the Torture Rack, giving the so called Enforcer no option but to concede the match, as the Titans go 0 for 2 tonight.

Winner: Lex Luger

VS.

It was time to crown a new United States Champion now......or possibly an old one.....because while Eddie Guerrero may never have held the gold, Diamond Dallas Page certainly has, in fact the only reason he is challenging for the title here and not defending it, is because he willingly relinquished the Championship to Vince Russo to kickstart a new era here in World Championship Wrestling.....

......Eddie Guerrero must surely be relishing the prospect of WCW becoming the land of opportunity, because for all of his unlimited potential, you could argue that this talented wrestler has been over looked because he doesn’t fit the mould of your average professional wrestler......but then the same could be said for DDP.....a man who decided to begin his career as an in ring competitor at an age that many wrestlers are contemplating the end of their career.....

......with that being said, both men here have something to prove, not only to the Wrestling world as a whole, but to themselves.....to prove that they do indeed belong here in the big leagues....and in this land of opportunity, who knows where a United States Championship win can take you.....it would surely not be a stretch to assume that an opportunity at the Big Gold Belt wouldn’t be out of the realms of possibility.....

......it’s a case of one step at a time here though, and the first step means picking up a win here tonight....this match, much like our previous one, was actually a little bit of a disappointment.....but not as much of a disappointment as it was for Diamond Dallas Page, when not only did he get caught with a basic roll up, Guerrero hooked a big handful of tights for the added leverage, and for the WCW US Title.

Winner: ........and New WCW World United States Champion.....Eddie Guerrero
Rating: B-

Quote:




As Guerrero heads to the locker room with the US Title in his possession, and Diamond Dallas Page slumps in the corner of the ring with a look of severe disappointment on his face, we head back to the private locker room of the Kings of Wrestling......where Hollywood Hogan looks far from pleased.....

.....he says that the Titans have wrestled two matches tonight.....and lost them both.....

”......and that’s just not good enough brother.......”

......he tells Traylor that regardless of who he was facing, he should have been out there with the Nasty Boys tonight......Knobbs and Saggs agree, but Hogan shuts them up, telling them that they had their match......they lost......they should have then stayed out there for The Enforcers match....

”........but the biggest culprit dudes, is YOU Jean Paul.......not only did you leave me high and dry on Nitro brother, but you don’t even have a match tonight......YOU should have been out there for both matches, taking care of Titans business.....”

......he tells Levesque that not only did he leave him high and dry, trapped in an illegal choke hold from Rowdy Roddy Piper (it wasn’t.....it was a perfectly legal sleeper-hold).....but now tonight, he’s not even out there supporting his brothers......Hogan says that there are two matches left involving the Titans.....Macho Man against Sting, and Hollywood against the Hot Rod.....and Hogan expects to see a better display of unity for those.

After an impressive start to his WCW career so far on Nitro, Bill Goldberg looks to carry that momentum into his first Pay Per View outing.....as he faces off against Mike Enos of the Destruction Crew......who fares no better here than either Craig Pittman or Kid Kash did on Nitro, as the Destruction Crew member got destroyed with the Spear and Jackhammer combination in around 3:45.

Winner: Bill Goldberg
Rating: D+

From that display of dominance we head to the back, where Mean Gene is standing by with the Warrior.....Gene says that for weeks now the Warrior has been coming to the aid of Sting.....unwanted aid at that, so much so that we have actually seen Sting walk away from the Warriors help, leaving him all alone and at the mercy of the Titans of Wrestling.....Gene’s question is simple....when is enough, enough?.......

.......the face painted superstar says that he is, by very definition, a Warrior.......and a true warrior never gives up on the attainable.....he could no more give up on Sting that the earth could stop orbiting the sun......he says that Sting may think he is a lone figure fighting for the fate of good, but their very essences are tied and joined as one.........in an intergalactic war for the ages that will see an end to the Titans tyrannical reign of terror......

......The Warrior lets out an almighty snort, before walking out of shot, leaving Gene looking slightly bewildered as he tells us that he THINKS what the Warrior is saying, is that he’s not given up on Sting yet.....back to ringside.

It’s not been a very good night thus far for the Titans of Wrestling, with both the Nasty’s and Ray Traylor losing their respective matches, Jean Paul Levesque being absent and apparently uninterested in the fates of his Titan team-mates.....as well as bickering inside the camp.....all of which meant that Hollywood Hogan had to call a come to Jesus meeting in the back to try and pull things together.....the Titans really need a victory to get the momentum of the night swinging back into their favour......and is there really any bigger victory to claim right now, than a victory over Sting? The man who could arguably be called the franchise of WCW.......

......this really was an excellent match too....easily the best of the night, and a showing of what WCW can actually do when they put their mind to it. Both men were at the top of their game tonight, and really worked hard to deliver a match worthy of the main event spot (had the orange goblin not already booked his place there).....unfortunately it looked like Hollywood’s little pep talk had worked its magic......
























.......because The Enforcer and The Nasty Boys (although still no Jean Paul Levesque interestingly enough) make their way down the aisle and surround the ring.....which doesn’t bode well for Sting.......
























......at least until the Warrior comes sprinting down the aisle, where he begins running the arriving Titan members over with Clothesline after Clothesline.....

.......and in the ensuing chaos, Sting is able to catch the Macho Man with the Scorpion Death Drop.....and three seconds later the Titans have ANOTHER loss under their belt tonight.

Winner: Sting
Rating: A

Warrior rolls into the ring and stands side by side with Sting as the Titans of Wrestling circle the face painted duo......Sting looks like he’s contemplating walking out again, but Warrior grabs him by the arm and drags him back to the middle of the ring, demanding that he stays and fights......not that the Titans give him much choice.....as all four men dive into the ring as one.....

.......the Warrior is ready, and he instantly drops both Knobbs and Saggs with a Double Clothesline......and as Traylor and Savage advance, Sting has little choice but to stand his ground and fight side by side with his one time tag team partner......and the Warrior is fresh as a daisy too, while all four Titans have competed once tonight.....and before long he and Sting have driven their attackers from the ring, as Savage orders his men to retreat to the safety of the aisle, before eventually heading to the back.....

......and the crowd is in a frenzy as Sting and the Warrior come face to face, staring each other down......before Warrior finally extends his hand in a sign of solidarity......

.......Sting looks down at the offer of friendship for a moment, before batting it away and shaking his head, as he turns and exits the ring, leaving the Warrior hanging.....again

That brings us to our main event.....and a clash between age old enemies.....as Rowdy Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan go at it one more time.....except this time the roles are very much reversed......because while the Hot Rod is very much a crowd favourite, Hollywood Hulk Hogan is one of the most hated men in the Wrestling business.........unfortunately this isn’t 1984.....Hell, it’s not even 1994.......this is 1997, and neither of these two men are anywhere near their prime.....that being said, they still managed to garner a great reaction from the crowd on name value alone.....and fortunately we had already had one great match to compensate for the less than stellar work rate here......

......what this is, is more of a dog and pony show....with a lot of playing to the crowd to try and hide the fact that these two men can’t go quite like they used to.....and while Hogan has fully embraced his heel persona.....scratching the back and raking the eyes.....this is Rowdy Roddy Piper he’s in there with.....and Piper wrestles like a heel whether he’s being cheered or booed......so it goes without saying that this was far from a clean affair.......





























.......and it becomes even less of a clean affair, when the Titans of Wrestling (although STILL conspicuous by his absence is Jean Paul Levesque.....and Randy Savage tips the scales in Hogans favour immediately with a simple trip of Pipers ankle....... it looks as though Rowdy Roddy Pipers Title aspirations could be coming to a screeching halt here.....






















.......fortunately for Piper, help is at hand.....as Vince Russo has clearly seen enough.....and he leads the troops out to even out the odds on the outside......Lex Luger, The Giant and the Road Warriors all make their way out behind him.....and immediately go to work on negating the effects of the Titans.....with the Nasty’s and the Road Warriors picking right up where they left off earlier.....while Luger goes for Savage, leaving The Giant and Ray Traylor to exchange blows.......Russo isn’t afraid to get in on the action either, as he hops onto the apron to scream at Hogan that things are changing around here “brother”......just as Roddy Piper slaps on the Sleeper Hold......

.......the official doesn’t notice this however.....he’s too busy trying to get Russo off the apron.....who (rather inexplicably) doesn’t appear to want to......if anything......he seems to be DELIBERATELY distracting the attention of the referee........




















......which is when Jean Paul Levesque comes out of the crowd, sliding into the ring behind Piper and dragging him off Hollywood......before kicking the Hot Rod in the gut......and driving his head into the mat with the Pedigree and rolling Hogan on top of his opponent.....before returning to the outside, where he nails Lex Luger with a steel chair.......

......Russo frantically indicates for the official to turn around and do his job.....which he does, registering the one.....the two.............and the three.......meaning that once again, Hollywood Hogan is the reigning WCW Champion......and after being locked in that Sleeper Hold, I don’t think he even realises.

Winner: ........and New WCW Heavyweight Champion.....Hollywood Hogan

Russo snatches the WCW Title from the hands of the timekeeper, climbing into the ring to present the Championship to the Champion, before laughing like a Bond villain as he pulls his jacket off to reveal a black (& white) Titans of Wrestling shirt underneath.....Piper is still down from the Pedigree......Lex Luger is down (thanks to a steel chair shot by Levesque)......that just leaves The Giant and The Road Warriors still standing......against six Titans.....and regardless of their size, those are some insurmountable odds for ANYONE to overcome......the odds get even worse when Hogan takes the Giant out, using the Big Gold Belt (double ax-handle style) to come off the apron, nailing the seven footer in the back of the head with the gold......

.......from there the Road Warriors are swarmed and beaten down to the concrete, as the crowd cover Hogan, Russo and the ring in general with trash.......before the show comes to a close with Vince Russo raising the hand (and the WCW Title) of Hollywood Hogan.....surrounded by the fallen warriors of WCW and the soldiers of the Titans of Wrestling........but not before this man (the Warrior) walks out onto the Entrance Ramp........









.......and this man......(the Stinger) is seen standing....watching.....unwavering, from the confines of the crowd.....






......the WCW roster might be down and out right now.....but The Warrior and the Stinger are still standing.......Warrior looks into the crowd, yelling at Sting that now is the time to fight......but Sting simply stands with that unreadable expression on his face.....before he again turns and walks away, as the show fades to black

Bit of a delay in posting, Wrestlemania season and all that, there’s been soooooooo much to watch. Only just caught up with Takeover and Wrestlemania, still got half of Ring of Honor to finish, but Bash at the Beach is done and in the books.....a little bit of a by the numbers show, I don’t think any of the results were ever going to be too surprising. Hopefully the new talent should all be moved over following Summerslam and that should breathe a bit of new life into WCW.....now I just need to sort this sh!tty locker room moral out.......

......oh and for the record, I know a lot of people assume Hogan has creative control.....he actually doesn’t. He DID, but I edited his contract length down to a day to renegotiate since he was on an “events only” contract (which is stupid) he was on $100k a month with creative control.......he’s now on $120k a month without creative control, but with hiring veto and wage matching (not that anyone will ever earn more) and 10% Per PPV appearance......its more than I would pay (hell, I didn’t even want to negotiate with him before I took over WCW because his demands were so high), but then it’s not my money it’s Uncle Ted’s.....and it gets rid of that creative control sh!t that I imagine would have driven me crazy.
