The House Show: SNME 8 – This is Where the Power Lies

Look! Look at our hands! Your trios tag team champions of The House Show hung and bung to discuss WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event 8. This episode was taped November 15, 1986 (aired November 29) at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in California before 16,000 fans.

We discuss a rare heel vs heel match. Hulk Hogan endlessly fed new challengers. Roddy Piper’s face turn. Debate over masks and twins. Who is Brian? Plus, how much TV time remains for the main event?

All of this plus food discussion that’s both tasty and disgusting. Who among us is brave enough to attempt to conquer the Meat Mountain?!

Saturday Night’s Main Event 8 matches include:

  • Randy Savage (Intercontinental champion) (with Miss Elizabeth) vs Jake Roberts.
  • Hulk Hogan (WWF World champion) vs Hercules (with Bobby Heenan).
  • Roddy Piper vs Bob Orton (with Jimmy Hart).
  • The Killer Bees vs The Hart Foundation (with Jimmy Hart).
  • Koko B Ware vs Nikolai Volkoff (with Slick).
  • The Magnificent Muraco (with Mr Fuji) vs Dick Slater.
