From Vince McMahon’s office, he and Jonathan Coachman try to hash out who his bastard child is. Vince recalls banging some black chick in Kansas City – where Coach was born. And wound up being black in Kansas City. In the 1970s. Vince is disgusted by even the mere thought of having Coach as a son.

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.

Anyways, let’s get started.

This is the first SNME airing from FOX, so we get a new logo and a new style added to the intro.
