Having not been seen or heard of since Vince Russo called
Hulk Hogan a “big, bad son of a bitch", followed by Booker T defeating Jeff Jarrett to
become WCW World Heavyweight Champion, Bash at the Beach is making a return!
As revealed by AEW, the Wednesday, January 15th edition of
AEW Dynamite will be the launching point of
a nine-day Bash at the Beach fan experience. That January 15th Dynamite will
take place at the Watsco Center in Coral Gables, Florida, and tickets will go
on sale this Friday at 12pm EST.
In a press release, AEW promised that its Bash at the Beach
events “will deliver nine unforgettable days of wrestling and much more from
the hottest company in the business today”.
As for what we know about these nine days of Bash at the
Beach goodness, the only other confirmed piece of information is that the
January 22nd episode of AEW Dynamite will actually be filmed from Chris Jericho’s
Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea Part Deux: Second Wave.
Cody Rhodes filed for the Bash at the Beach trademark
this past March, with that annual WCW PPV running from 1994 up until the
aforementioned 2000 event which spectacularly fell apart.
In addition to Bash at the Beach, Cody has also recently put
in to trademark All Elite Wrestling Blood and Guts. Famously, Vince McMahon’s early
reaction to AEW involved mocking the “blood and guts” style of the burgeoning
promotion. And now, it appears as if AEW are lining up Vince’s words as the
name of one of their 2020 PPVs.
