Today in Pro Wrestling History: March 18th – The Last WCW Pay-per-View

Today in Pro Wrestling History:  On March 18th, 2001, at the Jacksonville Coliseum, WCW held its final pay-per-view event, Greed. The main event featured World Heavyweight Champion Scott Steiner successfully defending his title against Diamond Dallas Page.

This event turned out to be the swan song for WCW, as just days later, World Championship Wrestling and all its assets were acquired by Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation.

Greed registered the lowest PPV buys in WCW’s history, marking a melancholic conclusion to the company that had been WWF’s major competitor.

A last-ditch effort by Eric Bischoff and Fusion Media Ventures to buy the company was unsuccessful, allowing McMahon to acquire WCW at a remarkably low price.
