This was a special show for WCW because not only was this the 20th Clash of the Champions special, but also the 20th anniversary of wrestling on TBS. There’s tons of honored guests here including Bruno Sammartino, Hank Aaron (he works with TBS) and the last American television appearance of Andre the Giant alongside Gordon Solie.

Clash of the Champions XIX
June 22, 1992
I know this really isn’t a good note to start out on, but according to ProWrestlingHistory.com, this was the lowest-rated Clash on TBS for the first 20 shows with just a 2.8. The lowest-rated Clash ever got a 2.6 one year later when some guys named Steve Austin & Brian Pillman took on Ric Flair & Arn Anderson in a main-event match that still makes people’s ears perk up today when they hear about the combination. Just something meaningless that I thought was sort of interesting.
On this night, WCW has brought in guys from all over the globe to compete in the first round of the NWA World Tag Titles tournament!
Your hosts are JR & Jesse! (Jesse’s first Clash and he’s pumped up!) Read the rest of this entry
