The Total Champion

July 14, 1991

In 1991, WCW/NWA Champion Ric Flair leaves WCW in favor of WWE and takes the title with him. This forces WCW management to vacate the World Title and have the No. 1 and No. 2 contenders – Lex Luger and Barry Windham, respectively – battle for the championship at The Great American Bash. Inside of a steel cage, Luger defeats Windham to win his first WCW World Title.
