Fun Fact: Before we get into the show itself, let’s get into the reasons why Wrestlemania was set up the way it was. On February 5, 1988, NBC held a special prime time edition of Saturday Night’s Main Event. This was on a Friday night, and it was called “The Main Event.” It was the first time in over 3 decades that Read the rest of this entry
