WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event – Episode 2 (10.05.1985) (Wrestling Review)


Saturday Night’s Main Event 

East Rutherford, New Jersey

Oct. 5th, 1985


WWF World Heavyweight Title Flag Match
Hulk Hogan (c) vs. Nikolai Volkoff (w/Freddie Blassie)

A typical Hogan match here with him dominating most of the match. Crowd loved it, he praised the USA. This was just to kick the show off strong. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Uncle Elmer (w/Cousin Junior & Hillbilly Jim) vs. Jerry Valiant

An awful match by which matches should be joked. A waste of time. .1 isn’t low enough even. 

.1 / 5

Tag Team Match
Andre The Giant & Tony Atlas (w/Captain Lou Albano) vs. The Heenan Family (Big John Studd & King Kong Bundy) (w/Bobby Heenan)

A wrestling match that tried its hardest to not include wrestling. Ending in a DQ and run in made this short mess even messier. 

.5 / 5

WWF World Tag Team Title Match
The Dream Team (Brutus Beefcake & Greg Valentine) (w/Johnny V) (c) vs. Lanny Poffo & Tony Garea

Tony Garea is the real MVP of this match. This was just a quick thing to make the champs look good, except at no point did they look good. 

1 / 5
