Tazz & Sabu vs Public Enemy (Tag Team Tables... by ROH4ever

20 years ago today in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Sabu and the Tazmaniac defeated The Public Enemy (Johnny Grunge & Flyboy Rocco Rock) in a double tables match to win the ECW World Tag Team Championship.

14 years ago today, Women of Wrestling (WOW) presented their only PPV, Unleashed, from the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, California. About 9,500 were in attendance with just 6,000 homes watching on PPV. The extremely low buyrate caused the collapse of the promotion, and WOW stopped producing original episodes just a month later. The show itself was plagued by technical difficulties, production glitches, and low-quality bouts (half the bouts on the show finished in under five minutes; the first four matches on the show lasted less than three minutes each) and is considered one of the worst shows in professional wrestling history.

  • Randi Rah Rah defeated Jacklyn Hyde.
  • The Beach Patrol (Sandy and Summer) fought Farah and Paradise to a double-pin draw.
  • Tanja the Warrior Woman defeated Jane Blond.
  • Nicky Law defeated Heather Steele.
  • Boom Boom and Caliente defeated The Asian Invasion (Jade and Lotus).
  • Bronco Billie defeated The Disciplinarian.
  • Roxy Powers and Slam Dunk fought to a double-disqualification.
  • Riot defeated Wendi Wheels in a hardcore match.
  • Jungle Grrrl defeated Beckie the Farmer's Daughter in a splash match, where the winner was the first to hit a splash. Jungle Grrrl hit a splash off the top of a ladder set up outside the ring.
  • Caged Heat (Delta and Loca) defeated Harley's Angels (Charlie Davidson and Easy Ryder) to become the first WOW Tag Team Champions.
  • Terri Gold defeated Danger to win the WOW Championship.
  • Patti Pizzazz defeated Ice Cold and Poison in a hair versus hair match.
  • Thug defeated Selina Majors in a steel cage match.

14 years and a day ago today, NBC presented the debut broadcast of the XFL. One year to the day the XFL was announced in a press conference, the WWF-inspired football league led off with the Las Vegas Outlaws shutting out the New York/New Jersey Hitmen 19-0, and the Orlando Rage hanging on for a 33-29 win over the Chicago Enforcers. The league's first games were watched by 14 million viewers, but it would lose half its audience by the next week. By season's end, one of their games would be the least-watched primetime program in television history.

12 years ago today at an NWA-TNA weekly PPV taping, Abyss & AJ Styles defeated Red Shirt Security (Joe E. Legend and Kevin Northcutt) to win the NWA World Tag Team Championship.

10 years ago today at a RAW taping in Saitama, Japan, William Regal and Tajiri defeated La Resistance (Robert Conway and Sylvain Grenier) to win the World Tag Team Championship.
