WWE – The Best of Saturday Night’s Main Event – Disc One

WWE – The Best of Saturday Night’s Main Event – Disc One
Released: 2/10/2009

Your host is Gene Okerlund.

Gene introduces the show by taking us back to 1985 – the origin of Saturday Night’s Main Event. This was the first wrestling program on broadcast television since the 1950s. The Rock N Wrestling Connection defined the era and Saturday Night’s Main Event became the must-see show of the time. On the main event of the very first show just weeks after the first WrestleMania, WWF champion Hulk Hogan took on Roddy Piper’s partner in crime “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr. for the title.

The Hart Foundation YouTube/DailyMotion MixTape

Arguably one of the greatest tag teams of the ’80s. Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart and Jimmy Hart started from the bottom up and captured two WWF tag team championships in three years. Their battles with the Killer Bees, the Rougeau Brothers, the British Bulldogs and the Rockers are examples of tag team wrestling excellence. In 1997, the Hart Foundation became a stable and other members of the Hart family joined to compete against the best the WWF had to offer at the time as an anti-American group. By the end of 1997, Bret Hart was screwed out of the WWF title, Davey Boy Smith and Jim Neidhart left the WWF, Brian Pillman passed away, and Owen Hart hung around in the mid-card – ending another successful run of the Hart Foundation.

Top 20 SNME Matches!

Now that I have completed all 31 original episodes of SNME, I’ve compiled a Top 20 list to commemorate the best of the show. These matches are based on workrate versus memorable moments on the show, so the Hogan/Orndorff cage match won’t be included because I feel its pretty overrated outside of the controversial “both guys hit the floor at the EXACT same time” business.

20. WWF Tag Team Champions The British Bulldogs vs. Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff – 2/3 Falls (SNME #6 – May 1986) ** 3/4
19. Randy Savage vs. Brutus Beefcake (SNME #22 – July 1989) ** 3/4
18. Ted DiBiase vs. The Blue
Blazer (SNME #20 – March 1989) ***

15. WWF Tag Team Champions The Hart Foundation vs. The British Bulldogs – 2/3 Falls (SNME #11 – May 1987) ***
14. Randy Savage vs. Jake Roberts (SNME #30 – February 1992) ***
13. Tito Santana vs. Rick Martel (SNME #23 – October 1989) ***
12. WWF IC Champion Randy Savage vs. Jake Roberts (SNME #8 – November 1986) ***
11. WWF Tag Team Champions Demolition vs. The Brain Busters (SNME #21 – May 1989) ***1/4

Saturday Night’s Main Event #7 (10.86)

WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event #7
October 4, 1986
Richfield, OH
Richfield Coliseum
(Taped on 9/13/1986)

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Hulk Hogan (1/23/1984)
Intercontinental Champion: Randy Savage (2/8/1986)
World Tag Team Champions: The British Bulldogs (4/7/1986)
Women’s Champion: The Fabulous Moolah (7/9/1986)

Tonight, does Jake Roberts and Damien really take showers together? Only they know for sure. Plus, the Dream Team look to send the Bulldogs to the dog pound and take back their tag team belts. Can you really send people to the dog pound merely because a nickname? With that logic, you could say lighting Dynamite Kid on fire would cause him to eventually explode! And later on, Kamala makes his return to the WWF! It seems he’s already in talks with the Dungeon of Doom nine years ahead of time. Must be a hard club to get into! But first, Benedict Orndorff calls Hogan a crybaby. OH NO HE DIDN’T! Yes he did. It’s time for Saturday Night’s Main Event!

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Jesse “The Buckwheat” Ventura. Read the rest of this entry
