TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… JULY 13th: Rodman debuts at Bash at the Beach 1997

DATELINE: JULY 13, 1997 – THE OCEAN CENTER – DAYTONA, FL


Lex Luger and The Giant defeated Dennis Rodman and Hollywood Hogan, in a match that helped WCW grab the attention of the sports world and mainstream America.

The presence of ‘Rodzilla’, who had just come off winning the NBA title with the Chicago Bulls, helped fuel an impressive pay-per-view buyrate: 325,000 homes purchased the event, which was nearly four times more than the 1996 edition of the event.
