After being a part of the NWA’s calendar for three years, they finally narrowed down the concept to one show and one city; Baltimore. Baltimore would be home to eight of the next twelve “Bashes”, which is more than any one city has ever held for one particular wrestling show in North America.

Clash of the Champions #2 (6/88)

NWA Clash of the Champions II: Miami Mayhem
June 8, 1988
Miami, FL
James L. Knight Center

Talk about a drop from the original, CotC 2 doesn’t even have an NWA World title match OR a multi-million dollar wrestling company to compete against in this timeslot. Basically from this show forward, the Clash was used to further a major feud (or feuds) before a big blowoff match. Which feud (or feuds) am I talking about? Let’s find out!

Clash of the Champions #1 (3/88)

NWA Clash of the Champions
March 27, 1988
Greensboro, NC
Greensboro Coliseum

So the WWF wants to put on a PPV to make cable companies choose which wrestling show they let America watch on Thanksgiving? Fine. The WWF gets two hours on free-TV for the first-ever Royal Rumble show, while we’re trying to have a crappy battle royal inside of a cage called “The Bunkhouse Stampede”? Whatever, that’s cool. But if you think for one second that we’re not going to put on a show during that one day a year where you show forth your abnormal compulsion of “wrestling” and that we’re not going to show you guys up North how it’s done with a two-hour wrestling extravaganza, then you’re DEAD WRONG, mister (McMahon)!
