What the World Was Watching: WCW Saturday Night – July 29, 1995

Gene Okerlund interviews WCW Champion Hulk Hogan in a dark room.  Hogan says he misses Andre the Giant and how it was unfair the Pontiac Silverdome did not chant Andre’s name.  He does his best to act dramatic, sniffing Andre’s old shirt, as he says he felt Andre’s presence when the Giant threw the shirt at him at Bash at the Beach and that rumors of Andre having a son were true.  Hogan concludes by saying that the time has come to rise and face the challenge of the Giant again and to do so he will have to fight through the Dungeon of Doom.  That journey will start on next week’s Main Event.

Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan are doing commentary and they are taped from Atlanta, Georgia.  The matches on this broadcast took place on July 11.

What the World Was Watching: Bash at the Beach 1995

Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan are in the booth and they are live from Huntington Beach, California.  Schiavone says that the crowd is the biggest ever to see a WCW event.  This passes the eye test but there was no accurate way to verify how many people were there to see the show since WCW did not sell tickets to the event.

A video package hypes Meng.

United States Champion Sting is interviewed by Gene Okerlund.  Sting says that he has home field advantage and the fans – including his mother and father who are at ringside – will give him the energy to defend the U.S. title.
