Availablity on the WWE Network
WCW closed in 2001 and all rights to their television and PPV shows was bought by WWE, including the Beach Blast shows. With the launch of the WWE Network in 2014 the 1992 Beach Blast show became available on demand for network subscribers. Due to copyright concerns some of the theme songs originally used were initially replaced with generic music, notably the entrance music for Sting and the Steiner Brothers composed by Jimmy Papa. In March 2014, WWE restored the original music after an unsuccessful lawsuit by the composer. The show was one of the first major events held after Bill Watts had been put in charge of WCW and would be the first show where a number of Watts' new rules would be enforced, including any move that included jumping off the top rope would result in a disqualification.
