Post by: Smues on June 04, 2009, 02:13:52 AM
Files pulled. YO BABY YO BABY YO.

You know the drill, download these as soon as you get the chance, run winRar or other Rar program on part 1 and it'll extract the whole thing.

Get it while it's hot, links will be up through Monday or early Tuesday, let me know after you've d/led it, and if there are any problems.

This show is also on DailyMotion I'm told, so whoever has those links please put them up. I just prefer having the file on my computer over streaming so I put it up for others who feel the same.

I'll leave it to someone else to post the card, I don't even know if I'll be around for this next week. What I DO know is that this ppv had an AWESOME commercial for it with PN News rapping part of the card. Sadly the video got pulled from youtube years ago and I've been unable to re-find it. If anyone has it PLEASE post it, I love me some PN News.

Edit: OH SHIT I FOUND IT!

Here's ALL you need to know about GAB 91:

I still contend, this is going to be better than the Russo shows we've seen already. I own the Turner home video version, so unless some absolutely awful shit didn't make the cut, Bash '91 will have more going for it than Havoc '99, BATB '99 or Uncensored '00 just by having two passable matches.

Oh I'm sure that you're right. I still need to watch this in full, but I think in the span of a month or so we'll have watched BATB99, Heroes of Wrestling, and GAB91,  somehow BATB99 will end up being the worst of the bunch.

Your card, and I'm assuming this is the full version of the show, is..

Scaffold Match: "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton and PN News vs. Terry Taylor and Steve Austin
Diamond Studd vs. The Z-Man
Ron Simmons vs. Oz(~!)
Battle Of The Rock And Roll Express: Robert Gibson vs. Richard Morton w/Alexandra York and a 90's laptop
Elimination 6-Man Tag Team Match: The Freebirds and Badstreet vs. Dustin Rhodes and The Young Pistols
Johnny B.Badd vs. The Yellow Dog
Lumberjack Match: Big Josh vs. Black Blood
One Man Gang w/Kevin Sullivan vs. El Gigante
Russian Chain Match: Nikita Koloff vs. Sting
World Title Cage Match: Lex Luger vs. Barry Windham
Mixed Tag In A Cage: Arn Anderson and Paul E. Dangerously vs. Rick Steiner and Missy Hyatt

Plus, possible, Junkyard Dog vs. Black Bart, which may or may not have been a dark match.

EDIT: Downloaded it, works fine for me. JYD's match isn't on there so must be a dark match. What a shame.

If I were more video/computer savy I'd tack that PN News promo onto the ppv video. It might end up being the best part of the show. Especially how he mentions that the Nature Boiyy is gonna walk that aisle. I sure can't wait to see him walk that aisle.

Here's the link to the show on DailyMotion.

The thing that strikes me about this card is that on paper, it doesn't look completely horrible. It looks like a slight and somewhat forgettable show but not worst of all time candidate. I mean El Gigante Vs One Man Gang, Ron Simmons Vs Oz, and the scaffold match look terrible but I defy you to find any card without two or three horrible sounding matches on there (Even WrestleMania X-7 had a few!). Ricky Morton-Robert Gibson, The Freebirds-Dustin Rhodes and Young Pistols, Johnny B. Badd-Brian Pillman, and heck, even the World title match all sound like they could be good but clearly, something ("allegedly"...this will be my first time watching this) went horribly wrong. That something is probably the departure of Naitch.

Of course, it doesn't bide well that the show is main evented by a comedy mixed tag team match. What the hell is that shit?

I don't know, there's a lot more Wrestlecrap on this card than the Russo cards. None of the Summer of 99 shows had characters as bad as Oz, El Gigante, Black Blood, The Yellow Dog, PN News, etc. Aside from the No Limit Soldiers maybe.

Post by: Bernie Bro Kamala on June 05, 2009, 03:45:41 AM
That's true...characters-wise, this has to be the worst show has to have the tackiest bunch of characters we've watched. Even The Freebirds are the cheesy early '90s version with Brad Armstrong and Oliver Humperdink. You also forgot to mention The Diamond Studd and The York Connection. Yeesh! Every match but the last three include at least one WrestleCrap inductee.

Still it'll be hard for this show top Bash At The Beach '99 and Heroes of Wrestling. Though I certainly won't be surprised if it does!
Title: The We Watch Shitty WCW Club 9th Meeting (Great American Bash 1991)
Post by: I Know You Like Sugar on June 05, 2009, 04:09:28 AM
The Diamond Studd was kinda generic, wasn't he? I don't remember much about him, besides being your typical cocky heel. I'm somewhat of a mark for the York Foundation. The idea of someone using computer simulation to make them a better wrestler would be so much more effective now than back then, but the concept was at least somewhat interesting.

Maybe I'm slightly bias because this was one of the shows I first watched as a kid. I'll admit to having a real soft spot for one of the matches (6-Man Tag). But I think the Flair saga plays a big part in the "worst show ever". Same way people will say Razor/Shawn is the best ladder match ever, in it's way you could make a case and even though people have done their best to top it, it's got tenure.

"Johnny don't be Badd, Johnny be GAY!"

SuperBrawl I was the first WCW PPV we ever ordered at our house (my dad had a friend with an illegal box which we used to catch Starrcade 90 and Wrestle War 91), but the tape messed up.  So, this is the oldest recorded (live) WCW PPV I own.  The Russian chain match was a favorite as a kid, me and my cousins would watch it all the time when they visited.

Have to take it back that I've never seen the show, although I haven't seen the entire show.  I think I have seen Zenk-Studd (TBS used to show random wrestling matches to fill time during Braves rain delays/to kill time after short games) and recall it being decentish.  I've also seen Gigante-Gang which is a candidate for worst match ever, and they actually had rematches around the horn afterwards

This was a good choice because between the Scaffold Match and Gigante-Gang you want to kill yourself and still haven't addressed the "We Want Flair" chants or the fact that somebody thought a 20 minute match with Robert Gibson playing Ricky Morton was a good idea.

So I'll be getting shitty for this. I bought a case of Budweiser for some stupid kids and they only drank like six and left it my house. I don't even like Budweiser, it's one step above the Natural Ices and on par with the Milwaukee Best and Busch's of the world IMHO but I'll like it even less if it's sitting around my house for a few days. And what better beverage for the Great American Bash then The Great American Lager, amirite?

'95...if you can't get it, it's on DailyMotion. It's The Turner Home Version but at this stage, I think they'd stopped clipping matches.

And, yes Jingus, I actually counted the votes up!

I'm so glad I came to my senses.

I did rewatch a bit of it though, and man, that "WE WANT FLAIR!" chant was awesome.  Especially since JR and Fat Tony had to talk over it and pretend it wasn't there.  Even when there were close-ups of fans clearly chanting it.  Tremendous.

Boy, nostalgia really gave this show a free ride for me. A lot worse than I remembered it. But there were three passable matches, which puts it over Havoc '00 (1) and BATB '99 (0), which also had worse booking and zero good finishes between them.

The Scaffold Match may be the worst match we've watched. It's got a lot in common with the Junkyard Brawl. Lazy booking, unneccessarily dangerous, utterly pointless, something nobody really cares out despite the "risk" involved. Only difference is, the Junkyard Brawl had injuries, because stuff happened. Literally NOTHING happened in the Scaffold Match. Just think how much better Austin vs. Eaton or Taylor vs. Eaton or even a straight tag match would have been.

Post by: Jingus on June 10, 2009, 12:01:34 AM
Oh, why not write about it further in depth. 

Scott Keith actually provides a pretty apt quote here: "Let this be a lesson to future generations of posters: Don’t watch this show, even to see how bad it could be. It’s just not worth it, no matter how cool your friends say you’ll be. Take up smoking instead." 


Before we even get to the matches, we must note a shitload of pointless nothing-happening filler spots.  Most of this is just the camera sitting and staring at Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone as the explain what's happening, what's going to happen, and what has already happened before.  There's a few stupid backstage segments, like one where Pervert Bischoff sneaks into Missy Hyatt's shower to peep on her, and Missy actually has to act like this annoys her.  Also, the hostility of the crowd has really been overhyped in the years since then; they rarely if ever do WE WANT FLAIR chants outside of the main event, and even there while loud they're rather sporadic. 

-Scaffold Match: Steve Austin & Terrence Taylor vs PN News & Bobby Eaton
I must disagree, I don't think this is the single worst match we've ever done.  At least it was short and nobody got hurt.  Compare that to the Junkyard, which stretched on for twenty endless goddamn minutes and injured half the participants.  As for sheer boredom, I think the infamous Varisty Club/NWO Japan could give it a run for its money, as well as a couple of matches from Heroes of Wrestling.  Still, a fucking horrible negative-star match.  Further fucked up by a seemingly botched finish where the match kinda ends but kinda doesn't, it's impossible to describe, nobody else knew what the fuck was going on either. 

-Tom Zenk vs Diamond Studd
I find it ironic that in 1996, the WWF sued WCW for plagiarism over Razor Ramon, when you'd think Turner's lawyers could just play this tape of Hall doing the exact same gimmick right here.  I missed most of this match, but something tells me I didn't really miss anything. 

-Oz vs Ron Simmons
I've probably seen several Kevin Nash matches that were worse than this one, but none readily come to mind.  Nash showed all his later in-ring talent with none of his later personality or charisma.  Ron Simmons didn't seem to know what the fuck to do with this guy either. 

-Richard Morton vs Robert Gibson
ARGH.  This match had NO right being this fucking bad.  It feels like it's still going on right now.  ENDLESS boredom with what should've been a hot grudge match instead being the world's worst Work The Leg match, with Morton doing a piss-poor Flair impression.  Literally half this match was stalling, starting an unfortunate trend for the rest of the night.  Even the announcers are politely bitching about how they were disappointed here.  And to repeat my question from the chat: of these two guys, why the fuck did they turn Ricky heel? 

-Young Pistols/Dustin Rhodes vs the Freebirds
Well, at least fucking Tracey Smothers had his working boots on tonight.  Unfortunately, nobody else did, and even the Smokey Sellout FBI Thug Freddie Boy Smothers ain't enough to carry this all by himself.  Lots of stalling by the 'Birds, including moments where they just stop dead in their tracks and start posing or talking shit to the crowd while their opponents are standing right next to them with their thumbs up their asses.  Also, this match is elimination rules, which makes no sense since they go for 15 minutes without eliminating anybody followed by eliminating everybody in about two minutes at the end.  Oh yeah, Dustin is the sole survior.  Gee, who's booking this show? 

-Yellow Dog vs Johnny B. Badd
Kamala predicted that even if they were quarter-assing it, Pillman/Mero should be good.  Well, he was half right.  Simplistic match that I already have a hard time recalling any details about.  Stupid DQ finish when Teddy Long runs in for one of those "the manager comes in for the blatant disqualification for absolutely no apparant reason, I mean the babyface hasn't even hit their finisher or anything" retarded finishes. 

-Black Blood vs Big Josh
This is a lumberjack match, with two men you might know better as Billy Jack Haynes and Matt Borne.  Thus making it the sort of thing that the WWF might've run as the semi-main of its C-team house show in 1986.  But these two guys are actually trying to make it a real match and put some effort into it.  Not enough to make it worth watching, there's still brawling lumberjacks and a fucking executioner's battleaxe involved in the finish, but the crowd halfway woke up at times. 

-El Gigante vs One Man Gang
Yes this sucked, and it was GANG's fault.  Gigante did the best he could, and except for one moment where he forgot he was supposed to slam OMG off the top he didn't fuck up anything.  Hell, the big goof sold, bumped a little, did a suplex, that poor guy executed every single move he was capable of.  Meanwhile, Gang seemed to blow up in about thirty seconds and looked sluggish and listless for the duration.  Extra negative bonus points for Kevin Sullivan cutting what sounded for all the world like an Ultimate Warrior promo on the ramp, a babbling stream of meaningless incoherence that defied all possible explanation.  Also, some shit with some midgets.  I dunno and I dun'care. 

-Sting vs Nikita Koloff
Match Of The Night here, and sadly that ain't saying much.  This is a Russian chain match, and it isn't even one-tenth as good as the strap match Sting would have with Vader next year.  They at least do some tolerable brawling in that Shane Douglas vs Pitbull #2 sort of way.  But the finish is stupid, with the Both Guys Are Touching Each Corner bit as well as a patented "wow, Sting rode the short bus" moment as he just chooses not to win the match when he obviously could.  Sigh.  Best thing all night, and not even worth tracking down on Youtube. 

-Barry Windham vs Lex Luger
NOW the crowd gets their WE WANT FLAIR in.  Complete with the morons in the truck giving us several closeup shots of people screaming it into the camera!  Anyway, the match: sucks.  Boring, never gets out of first gear, never felt like a world title match.  You saw Lesnar vs Goldberg, right?  Imagine that match.  But in a cage.  Oh yeah it's a cage match.  Except they never even use the cage once.  Harley Race and Curtis Hughes come to ringside and do absolutely nothing, which somehow leads to WCW's top babyface Luger turning heel and winning the belt.  Fuck all this. 

-Arn Anderson & Paul E. Dangerously vs Rick Steiner & Missy Hyatt
YES, THIS IS YOUR MAIN EVENT!  SERIOUSLY!  And they even fuck the audience out of anything they could've expected here, as Dick Murdoch and Dick Slater show up to kidnap Missy for no apparant reason.  So it just turns into a handicap match.  It lasts all of two minutes, and the highspot is Paulie attempting a halfassed cell phone shot by jumping off the top rope.  Steiner no-sells and kills them both, the end.  THANKS FOR COMING OUT, DRIVE HOME SAFE! 


I don't know if this was the worst show of all time.  I still maintain that Heroes of Wrestling was worse, and most everyone agreed that Bash at the Beash '99 was more painful.  But I don't think I've ever seen one more boring than this, just a fucking neverending parade of slow inaction without even one genuinely exciting moment.

He ran in trying to unmask Pillman, as opposed to just saving Badd. So you could explain that away if you tried. Of course, JR and Tony didn't have much heart to try at that point.

Someone should start taking notes in the thread here whenever we spend an entire match talking about a completely different topic.  Like, our WCW as Saved By The Bell discussion.  I think we decided that Sting is Zack, Scott Steiner is Slater, Alexandra York is Jesse, and... fuck, I can't remember who we said for the rest.  Although I now come to the conclusion that Harley Race would make an awesome Mr. Belding.

Post by: Bernie Bro Kamala on June 10, 2009, 02:23:17 AM
Sting= Zack Morris
Scott Steiner=Slater
Eric Bischoff=Screech
Missy Hyatt= Uber slutty version of Kelly Kapowski
Alexandra York= Jesse
Ted Turner=Mr. Belding
?= Lisa Tuttle ( I don't think there were any black chicks at this point)
Jason Hervey= Johnny Dakota (the celebrity who came to Bayside to film an anti-drug PSA but in an ironic twist of fate got caught smokin' a joint in the bathroom)


And I don't think we could come to a consensus of what the worst show was but we definitely agreed that this was the 2nd worst show and I agree with Jingus that it was the most boring. Maybe not quite as bad as its reputation but pretty god damn close. Just don't watch this PPV. It doesn't even have much entertainingly bad hijinks.

Well, next week's show should be a slight respite. There are three matches in the *** range supposedly (Pillman/Alex Wright, Sting/Meng, and Flair/Savage) and the rest doesn't seem as spectacularly bad as the shows we've watched for the past couple weeks.

Oh and do we want to swap out Great American Bash '00 for '99? That seemed to be the consensus of the chat last night and I'm fine with it...though a little suspicious that you guys only want to do it because I said I didn't want to do it >:(. I'm just joking with ya but we should make some sort of decision on that in the next few days. I think some of us may be getting a little Russo'd out or something.

Post by: KingPK on June 10, 2009, 04:28:02 AM
I suggested Johnny B. Badd as Lisa.

The show's reputation is slightly overblown; the crowd isn't exactly hostile and is actually trying their best to get into the show most of the time and there is SOME decency in the matches, but it definitely is still one of the top 5 worst PPVs ever put out by any promotion.

I love the utter silence from the crowd after the last match as they collectively realize "Wait, THAT'S IT?!"

I'd be interested in knowing what the deal was behind that. Surely they couldn't have planned it out originally as a 3 minute main event like that? I mean, they spent literally ten minutes talking while the scaffold was coming down and maybe eight while the cage was going up. Something must have been up.

It had to have been longer. I don't know the story but I'm willing to bet that they were running out of satellite time and had to rush it before the feed cut out.

The weird thing is this type of thing happened at least two other shows we watched...last week's and Fall Brawl '00. Stupid WCW not knowing how to pace their shows.

for the shows on dailymotion if people have firefox and the tool downloadhelper then you can download from the dailymotion and hardcore if that makes downloading the shows easier.
