The January 15, 2020 episode of AEW Dynamite will have a special name to it: Bash at the Beach.
If the name sounds familiar that’s because it was a name that World Championship Wrestling used for pay-per-view events in the month of July from 1994 to 2000. When WCW died, WWE bought the company and while WWE could have used some PPV names that WCW used, they barely used any of them except Great American Bash while also running Starrcade live events in recent years.
Tickets for this special edition of Dynamite in Miami are on sale this Friday, November 22.
Here’s a press release that AEW sent out this morning:
