The NWA and Jim Crockett Promotions first used The Great American Bash back in 1985. WCW also used the pay-per-view name for several years, as did WWE after they bought WCW in 2001. WWE has used the name for RAW, SmackDown, ECW, and now NXT. The last Great American Bash event was a special edition of Super SmackDown Live on July 2, 2012.
