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.

Saturday Night’s Main Event #24 (11.89)

WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event #24
November 25, 1989
Topeka, KS
Expocenter
(taped on 10/31/1989)

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Hulk Hogan (4/2/1989)
Intercontinental Champion: Ultimate Warrior (8/28/1989)
World Tag Team Champions: Demolition (10/2/1989)
Women’s Champion: Rockin’ Robin (10/7/1988)

Tonight, Warrior plans to CHOP ANDRE DOWN TO SIIIIIIIIZE! Not according to Andre though, he says ULTIMATE WARRIOR CHAMPION NO MORE. Man, lots of yelling tonight. Also, Dusty Rhodes stole Bossman’s nightstick and now Bossman will have to make him serve hard time by shining that nightstick up real nice, turning it sideways, and shoving it straight up his CANDYA-oh wait, nobody says things like that for another ten years. Plus, The Genius thinks he’s smart just because he can rhyme. Please. Someone should introduce him to the Ying Yang Twins. Not even Einstein, Plato, or Socrates knew what to do when Hulkamania was run wild on them! Whoa, that makes no sense unless Hulk Hogan truly is immortal! If so, way to go WWF on the continuity! It’s time for Saturday Night’s Main Event!

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Jesse “The Body” Ventura. It’s my final SNME, and I couldn’t think up a witty nickname for Jesse’s wardrobe this time around. Read the rest of this entry

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

Before we get started, Slick preaches a quick little sermon about “light” or “light-ah” as he calls it. “When there is darkness in the WWF, it’s only temporary.” AMEN, BROTHA!
