Saturday Night’s Main Event #28 (10.90)

WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event #28: Oktoberfest
October 13, 1990
Toledo, OH
Sports Arena
(Taped on 9/18/1990)

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Ultimate Warrior (4/1/1990)
Intercontinental Champion: Kerry Von Erich (8/27/1990)
World Tag Team Champions: Hart Foundation (8/27/1990)

So now we get ANOTHER bad idea for a theme: the Oktoberfest edition of SNME. The superstars who aren’t on the card get to sit around in Bavarian costumes and drink beer while everybody else has to work.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Roddy Piper! Read the rest of this entry

Saturday Night’s Main Event #27 (07.90)

WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event #27: Wild Kingdom
July 28, 1990
Omaha, NE
Civic Auditorium
(Taped on 7/16/1990)

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Ultimate Warrior (4/1/1990)
Intercontinental Champion: Mr. Perfect (4/23/1990)
World Tag Team Champions: Demolition (4/1/1990)

From Vince’s odd sense of humor comes a parody of the “Wild Kingdom” nature show. In between matches, we would check in with our friends Marlon Perkins (played by Lord Alfred Hayes) and Jim Fowler (played by Gene Okerlund) who are involved in an on-going safari. The whole time, Gene remains in his usual character (It’s Gene, not Jim!), but Lord Alfred really seems to think he’s zoologist Marlon Perkins. It’s as hilarious as it sounds.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Jesse “I wear Indiana Jones cabana wear” Ventura! This would be Ventura’s last SNME. Read the rest of this entry
