Last event SuperBrawl Revenge

SuperBrawl was an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) during the month of February (and in May in 1991) from 1991 through 2001. Along with Starrcade, Bash at the Beach, The Great American Bash, and Halloween Havoc, SuperBrawl was booked to be one of WCW's flagship pay-per-views. The first SuperBrawl was held in May, but from 1992 onward it was held in February to coincide with the Super Bowl, which inspired the SuperBrawl name. The 2001 SuperBrawl was the penultimate WCW PPV, and the rights are owned by the WWE after it bought the promotion's intellectual properties in March 2001. Sting holds the record for most appearances at the pay-per-view with eight. In 2015, all WCW pay-per-views were made available on the WWE Network.
