When big bellies collide! No it’s not time for your trios tag team champions of The House Show to meet up at the local buffet. (Not yet.) It’s time for the sixth episode of Saturday Night’s Main Event featuring Uncle Elmer vs King Kong Bundy in the Battle of the Big Boys! This show was taped May 1, 1986 (and aired May 3) at the Providence Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
In other action, Hulk Hogan opens the show when he teams with the Junkyard Dog accompanied by the Haiti Kid and they take on Terry and Hoss Funk along with Jimmy Hart. The British Bulldogs take on the Iron Shiek and Nikolai Volkoff in a two out of three falls match. THAT infamous Jake Roberts and Ricky Steamboat moment. Plus the beginning of the Adrian Adonis: Bump Machine portion of the show.
Meanwhile the life updates you’ve come to know and love. Kevin is in the middle of intense comic book negotiations. Treats has a fast food adventure then gives a wrestling buddies update with a shocking turn. We also debate how many times is enough times to use an inappropriate word.
Saturday Night’s Main Event 6 – Battle of the Big Boys matches include:
- Hulk Hogan and the Junkyard Dog (with the Haiti Kid) vs Terry and Hoss Funk (with Jimmy Hart).
- King Kong Bundy vs Uncle Elmer
- Adrian Adonis (with Jimmy Hart) vs Paul Orndorff.
- Jake Roberts vs Ricky Steamboat.
- The British Bulldogs (WWF tag team champions) (with Lou Albano) vs Iron Shiek and Nikolai Volkoff (with Classy Freddie Blassie) in a two out of three falls match for the tag titles.

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.
