Saturday Night’s Main Event #29 (04.91)

WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event 29
April 27, 1991
Omaha, NE
Civic Auditorium
(Taped on 4/15/1991)

World Champion: Hulk Hogan (3/24/1991)
Intercontinental Champion: Mr. Perfect (11/19/1990)
World Tag Team Champions: The Nasty Boys (3/24/1991)

This is the final SNME episode to air on NBC for fifteen years due to declining ratings. The remaining two episodes (2/92 and 11/92) would be picked up by Fox, which seemed to get a lot of NBC’s table scrapings in the early ’90s.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Randy Savage, because he’s retired from all that ‘rasslin! Read the rest of this entry

WrestleMania VII

WWF WrestleMania VII: Superstars and Stripes Forever
March 24, 1991
Los Angeles, CA
L.A. Sports Arena

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Sgt. Slaughter (1/19/1991)
Intercontinental Champion: Mr. Perfect (11/19/1990)
World Tag Team Champions: Hart Foundation (8/27/1990)

So much for that 100,000+ sell-out crowd at the LA Memorial Coliseum. Due to low ticket sales and a supposed bomb scare, the WWF had to settle with the MUCH smaller LA Sports Arena that held just over 15,000 people.

Willie Nelson sings the national anthem. Yeah, doesn’t get much more American than a pothead tax evader.

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby Heenan! Read the rest of this entry

World Tag Team Champions: Hart Foundation (8/27/1990)

Opening montage: When Hulk’s not gunning for the WWF title or making movies, he goes on the USO tour and hangs out in tanks at local army bases or he’s cheering up kids in hospitals. On his way to the arena today, he nursed a sick bunny rabbit back to health! It was red, white and blue and everything! Hulk Hogan is great!

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

The Main Event #4 (11.90)

WWF The Main Event #4
November 23, 1990
Fort Wayne, IN
Allen County Coliseum
(Taped on 10/30/1990)

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)

What would’ve been a 90-minute SNME #29, turned into a 60-minute “The Main Event #4” and was aired the night after the Survivor Series. The major Hart Foundation/Rockers tag title switch was supposed to air, but was cut from the show. From what I’ve heard, the reason the title switch was never recognized was because of backstage problems with different tag teams, so Vince dropped the whole thing and returned to the belts to the Harts as if nothing had happened.
