I am thinking this day may have had potential. Of course 1982 at the Omni (Flair vs Backlund)

I am guessing some "Great American bash" shows happened to fall on a July 4th. Anything of significance on this day in history?

It was far from being a major title but Kerry,Kevin and David Von Erich won the WCCW six man title today in 1983 from the Freebirds.

In 1984 the Freebirds won the same title from Kerry,Kevin and Mike in a Badstreet match (all six in the ring at the same time) and it was named Wrestling Observer's Match of the Year.

The Spoiler unmasked in late 1967 as well by losing a bout to Fritz Von Erich. Bastien was booking when the other unmasking happened.

Igor Putski was Ricky Ferrera. He was billed as Ivan's brother. Biggest push Ferrera ever got his in his career. He was mainly an undercard performer when he used his real name. He later became a referee for Watts.

1987 - Jim Crockett Promotions holds the main show of their 1987 Great American Bash tour in Atlanta, Georgia at the Omni, featuring the debut of "War Games: The Match Beyond".  The match features two rings, side by side, covered by a large steel cage with a roof. The bout saw The Four Horsemen (Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard & Lex Luger) & manager JJ Dillon vs. Dusty Rhodes, Nikita Koloff, The Road Warriors & manager Paul Ellering.  The match started with Rhodes vs. Anderson for five minutes, then the teams alternated sending in a wrestler in two minute intervals.  Once both teams were completely inside the cage, the match could only end by submission or surrender.  Dillon surrendered, giving Rhodes' team the victory. Dillon was injured during the match, and was replaced in the other War Games matches on the Bash tour by "The War Machine" (Bubba Rogers under a mask).
