WCW Great American Bash, June, 13 1999
WCW Great American Bash
Sunday, June 13, 1999
Reporting from Canada: Xavier Doom, Esq. from The Slayground
Additional commentary by Wheezer©
Ah, yes, it's time for U.S. wrestling's most patriotic wrestling event: The
Great American Bash.
Being Canadian (and not far from the border), my heart
swells with patriotic glee. Don't believe what you saw and heard
during Bret Hart's "Slander America" WWF days -- in Canada, wrestling fans
are conditioned to cheer the red, white & blue.
There's nothing funnier than watching a crowd of Canadian fans get behind
your Sgt. Slaughters, your Jim Duggans or your Corporal Kirschners with a
"U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!!" chant.
In fact, in years gone by, you didn't have to put an American super-patriot rassler in the
ring to get my fellow Canadians reciting the "U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!!" mantra.
An evil foreigner like Nikolai
Volkoff or the Iron Sheik also did the trick.
In 1986, the Iron Sheik got on the stick at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens
and gave the fans hell
for it. "Stupid Canadians," he screamed in his patented patois, "why do
you chant 'U-S-A, U-S-A' when you are not Americans???"
There was this mass reaction. Suddenly, a hush went over the crowd as the
16-thousand fans realized how silly they were acting. Some just looked at the
floor, embarrassed. It was rather funny.
A few moments later, they were screaming for Billy Jack Haynes to kick the
Sheik's flabby butt. The bloodthirsty "U-S-A!!! U-S-A!!!" chant started again.
After the match, some fan sitting beside me (we were about 82 rows back) threw both
of his sneakers at the entrance ramp, in an attempt to hit the Iron Sheik as he went back to
the dressing room.
One shoe disappeared into the crowd, about 30 feet off target. The other
bonked some poor guy in the back of the head, knocking him over the seat in front of
him and into another fan. I sat there absolutely speechless in my Ozzy
Osbourne Bark at the Moon tour t-shirt. I was what Dusty Rhodes would call
The shoe thrower then casually climbed down over the 80 or so rows in the
packed arena to retreive his footwear. He found both shoes, and climbed back up.
He then turned to me and complained in a thick accent that the guy he hit on
the head gave him a hard time, and tried to keep his shoe.
The shoe guy then told me his motivation for chucking his Nikes: he was from
Iraq, and that his country was at war
with the Shiek's country, Iran. I then got a history lesson about Middle East
relations as I struggled to be polite and still enjoy the killer Roddy Piper-Cowboy Bob Orton match.
The moral? Don't throw stuff at live shows. People can get hurt.
And don't throw your shoes under any circumstance; you have to walk to retrieve them. Oh, and
don't rant about war when the main event of a wrestling card is underway.
1986. Piper vs. Orton. Yeah, Roddy Piper was cool back then. If you're a relatively new
fan, I know that must come off as an outrageous statement. But it isn't.
Piper was awesome. In mid-1986, he eclipsed Hulk Hogan as the world's most
popular wrestler. I'm not kidding. Piper was the perfect badass, equally
effective as a heel or face. And he
worked the crowd so well with a mixture of credible wrestling and hilarious
I think I've figured out when he went from super funny and absolutely
intense to unfunny and out-of-touch.
The transition happened sometime after his first retirement in 1987.
At around the time of that
retirement, Piper was involved in making bad-to-mediocre movies, like Hell
Comes to Frogtown and They Live. Hell Comes to Frogtown was like a crappy
Mad Max with mutant frogs and exploding jock straps.
They Live was a '50s-inspired alien invasion flick. Piper was no longer
a wrestler, you see.
He was a Hollywood actor. Though, not for too long.
By late 1988, Piper decided it was time to return to wrestling in a limited
fashion. The NWA (later WCW) toyed with the idea of bringing him in. But he
was dubbed not worth the money he demanded. So, instead, he appeared on the
Portland Wrestling television show for his long-time buddy, promoter Don Owen.
The angle that showed just where Piper started to go from cool to wacko
was aired on Jan. 21, 1989. Piper decided he was going to take young wrestler
Art Barr, and transform him into a man with some major intensity.
Here's how he did it.
On the set of the show, Piper came out and told Barr to take off his boots. A confused looking Barr complied.
Piper then sniffed the boots and commented on how smelly they were. Ha-ha.
Piper then called out a couple of rasslers who held up a sheet in front of Barr
so he could change his clothes on television. Piper assured Barr he was turning him into
a wrestler people could be proud of. He told Barr to take off his tights.
Barr complied, Piper sniffed the tights. They smelled bad. Go figure.
Piper then told Barr to take off anything else he was wearing. The shirt
came off. Then Barr gingerly tried to hand over a pair of panties. Grrrrrroan.
Piper then gave Barr new pants, shoes and a jacket, smeared black face paint under his eyes,
put shaving cream and baby powder in his hair.
And voila: the wrestling version of Beetlejuice was born.
Suddenly, the once passive Barr sprung to life, hooting and kissing people on
Never mind that this was serious copyright infringement at work, it was just
frikkin' sad. Barr came out later in the broadcast and attacked Colonel
DeBeers for what seemed to be no reason. He was Beetlejuice now, folks!
He was all revved up -- vvvvvrrrroooooooom!!!!
Anyway, the announcers tried to play this up like Barr's "transformation" was a major
happening. Basically, they were polishing a turd.
It was easily one of the lamest moments in wrestling history, and certainly
marks when Piper seriously misfired for the first time.
I got a copy of the tape of this non-event from Herb Kunze, the webmaster of
Connoisseurs of kitsch wrestling may want to take a look. Hey, the haircuts
alone were worth the price of the tape, as far as I was concerned.
A side note: Barr took the Beetlejuice character to WCW in 1990, where he was called
"The Juicer." It sounded like the name of one of those infomercial products.
The transition to WCW didn't make the Beetlejuice/Juicer
wrestling character any better --
it was just lame on a national scale. By 1994, Barr became a top heel in
Mexican wrestling, and then died of "drug related causes." Whoops.
As for Piper, he returned to the WWF for a feud with Rick Rude later in 1989.
In 1990, more lameness. This time, in a feud with Bad News Brown.
Piper flubbergasted thousands of fans by adopting this look
at WrestleMania VI:
Piper disappeared, and came back to the WWF in 1991 for a successful run that
included an Intercontinental title reign and a feud with Ric Flair. He was
seen now and then, and took on the WWF Commissioner's role in
1996. He jumped to WCW in October '96.
Since then, big moments of lameness (like Piper's Family and a terrible U.S.
title reign) have tarnished the man's once-pristine image further. Topping it all off
are old jokes, cheap heat references and bizarro analogies only he understands.
And guess what? More than ten years after the degeneration started with the
ridiculous Beetlejuice incident on Portland
Wrestling, we get to see Piper tonight at the 1999 Great American Bash.
More than ten years out of touch is our man Piper.
Geez... all these stories, and I nearly forgot the reason I started writing
this report to begin with. The pay-per-view. Yeah, I guess I'd better get
back on track here. This year's Bash doesn't really look all that good
Let's face it. With an old and out-of-touch Piper facing an older and
fading Ric Flair, we could be in for a long night.
The build-up to this card has been something of a joke. I don't know about
you folks out there, but I think that when WCW resorts to having Kevin Nash spray
Randy Savage and his chickies with poop soup, there's something wrong.
Hmm... is Nash out of touch? It's hard to tell at this point, though
in his defence, he hasn't tried to turn a young wrestler into a movie
character. Billy Kidman, meet Darth Maul. Humperdido!
But I wouldn't be surprised if all the excrement on recent Nitros is symbolic
of the quality of the wrestling and booking we'll see here tonight...

on "Raging Bull" Manny Fernandez. (He's due for a big comeback.)

Some are born to move the world, to live their fantasies.
But most of us just dream about the things we'd like to be.
Sadder still to watch it die, than never to have known it.
For you, the blind who once could see,
The bell tolls for thee...
