Taking place January 4, 1986 (recorded December 19, 1985) it’s time to put on our sun screen and bathing suits in the middle of winter. It’s time to have some “Fun in the Sun” with the WWF Superstars.
The wrestlers and fans are enjoying the warmer weather from the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida and there is a hot night of wrestling action ahead. Tonight will see a world title match, the Country Boys get their revenge, and a Peace match bringing countries together.
Plus your trios tag team champions debate the show and debate each other’s decisions. Matty Treats spends way too much money. Is Hillbilly Jim and under rated big man? How does one settle disputes in a water slide competition, and what are the rules? We talk about magazine racks. Debate Cousin Junior vs Cousin Luke. Plus, how do you like your hot dogs?
Saturday Night’s Main Event: “Fun in the Sun” matches include:
- Jesse the Body Ventura, Rowdy Roddy Piper, and Cowboy Bob Orton vs Hillbilly Jim, Uncle Elmer, and Cousin Luke.
- Hulk Hogan (WWF World champion) (with Junkyard Dog) vs Terry Funk (with Jimmy Hart).
- Macho Man Randy Savage (with Miss Elizabeth) vs George the Animal Steele (with Captain Lou Albano).
- Nikolai Volkoff (with the Iron Sheik and Classy Freddie Blassie) vs Corporal Kirchner in a Peace Match.
- Junkyard Dog and Ricky the Dragon Steamboat vs Magnificent Muraco and Mr Fuji.

The Retro Network’s own Kevin Decent (@MaskedLibrary) along with his two best friends “Sweet” Matty Treats (@MattyTreats) and Matt “the Educator of Excellence” began The House Show by reviewing WWF’s In Your House pay per view events over the course of the worldwide quarantine. Next, they covered all of the WCW Halloween Havoc events finishing out 2020. Now in 2020, they will be going back to WWF for all the Saturday Night’s Main Event shows. This trios team has been watching wrestling all their lives and debating the outcomes since high school. Invite them in your house each week for the main episode on Thursdays and The Run In on Mondays.
