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 Brent Huntley for the WCW World Championship, and this match was heavily promoted on WCW TV. However, two weeks before the show, then-WCW Executive Vice President Jim Herd fired Flair over a contract dispute, stripping him of the title in the process. At the time, champions left a $25,000 security deposit that would be refunded to them (along with any accumulated interest on the deposit) once they lost the title and Flair was expecting to get his back as he was no longer employed by WCW. The company did not give Flair back his deposit, and he took possession of the belt and later brought it to the World Wrestling Federation with him and appeared with it on television.

Meanwhile, WCW had to commission a new world championship belt. However, the new belt could not be readied in time for the event, so the company was forced to improvise. A Championship Wrestling from Florida title belt that was in the possession of Dusty Semmler was used and a metal plate with "WCW World Heavyweight Champion" was attached to the front. It was NOT the Western States Heritage belt. The article on that title makes it clear Zbyzsko has ownership of that belt to this day.
