“The Great American Bash” name has been resurrected by WWE for next Wednesday’s edition of NXT.
During tonight’s show an advertisement aired promoting that “The Bash is Back” over clips of Dusty Rhodes, Hollywood Hogan, Bret Hart, Booker T and Triple H. The commercial further stated that the tradition of “The Great American Bash” comes to NXT.
Next week’s episode of NXT goes head-to-head with AEW’s Fyter Fest, a two-week event. The subsequent announcement on WWE’s website notes the Bash will also take place over the next two weeks.
The Great American Bash was an annual NWA/WCW event, and later WWE, that ran from 1985 to 2012. Dusty Rhodes came up with the concept of the event. The last Bash aired on SyFy channel as a special episode of SmackDown.
