The Great American Bash 1991 took place on July 14, 1991 at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

The card was originally to be highlighted by a Steel cage match between Ric Flair and Lex Luger for the WCW World Championship, and this match was heavily promoted on WCW TV. However, just a few days before the show, then-WCW Executive Vice President Jim Herd fired Flair over a contract dispute, stripping him of the title in the process. Flair took the the physical title belt with him to the World Wrestling Federation, so WCW had to make a new WCW World Heavyweight Championship belt; however, the new belt could not be readied in time for the event, so an older belt (the Florida Heavyweight Championship from Dusty Rhodes's short-lived Professional Wrestling Federation) was used as a temporary replacement, with a makeshift "WCW World Heavyweight Championship" plate affixed to the front.


Numbers in parentheses indicate the length of the match.
(c) refers to the champion(s) heading into the match.
