Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet.com is reporting that WWE is pretty close to revive some old WCW pay-per-view names for a couple of live televised events and Network specials.
Satin, quoting sources, said that the idea is “getting closer than you’d think” and these events will happen “in the very near future.”
Ever since purchasing WCW in 2001, WWE only made use of The Great American Bash and Clash of Champions names. During its peak, WCW also ran SuperBrawl, Uncensored, Slamboree, Bash at the Beach, Spring Stampede, Hog Wild, Fall Brawl, Halloween Havoc, World War 3, and Starrcade as pay-per-view names. Starrcade was the company’s most important event while other events like Bash at the Beach and Halloween Havoc were pretty popular as well.
WWE’s version of The Great American Bash was revived in 2004 and ran on pay-per-view for six years before it returned in 2012 as a Smackdown-themed episode. The Clash of Champions, named slightly different from WCW’s Clash of the Champions, made its WWE debut last year and it is scheduled as another pay-per-view in December.
