March 2nd

On this day in history in ....

1936 - Dick Shikat defeated Danny O'Mahony for the NWA Heavyweight Wrestling Title.

1939 - Marv Westenberg defeated Steve Casey for the AWA World Heavyweight Title.

1993 - Paul Orndorff defeated Erik Watts in a tournament final for the WCW World Television Title. Previous champion Scott Steiner had been stripped of the title when he left for the WWF, so a tournament was formed with 16 wrestlers divided into two brackets, called the "Anderson Conference" and the "Mr. Wrestling II Conference" in honor of two of the better known Television champions. Orndorff defeated 2 Cold Scorpio, Cactus Jack and Johnny B. Badd to reach the finals, while Watts defeated Johnny Gunn, Maxx Payne and Vinnie Vegas (Kevin Nash) to reach the finals. Interesting to note that Chris Benoit and Robbie V (Rob Van Dam) were in this tournament, long before they would ever get a push in the U.S.

1993 - Steve Austin & Brian Pillman defeated Shane Douglas & Ricky Steamboat  for the WCW World Tag Team Championship in Macon, Georgia, beginning the only tag title reign ever for the Hollywood Blondes.

2002 - The 6th Annual Super 8 Tournament was held in, St. Matthew's Parish Hall in Wilmington, Delaware. Here are the results of the tournament:
First Round:
- Donovan Morgan defeated Pepper Parks.
- Jamie Noble defeated Matt Stryker.
- Red defeated Bobby Rude.
- AJ Styles defeated Xavier.
- Donovan Morgan defeated Jamie Noble.
- AJ Styles defeated Red.
- Donovan Morgan defeated AJ Styles to win the Super 8 Tournament.

2004 - WWE taped Smackdown in Savannah, Georgia.  In the most hilarious moment of the night, Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas did a parody of the APA (who they were feuding with), then sang a rendition of the West Texas Rednecks (a WCW stable) song "I Hate Rap" with new lyrics making fun of the APA, leading to a brawl between the teams. Also on the show, WWF World Champion Eddie Guerrero was to wrestle Paul Heyman with his hands handcuffed behind his back.  However, it was a set-up, as Heyman left the ring and Kurt Angle came out and beat up the handcuffed Eddie. Guerrero responded by spitting in Angle's face, so Angle knocked out Guerrero with the title belt.
