We interrupt our regularly scheduled The House Show podcast for this breaking news. The Educator is down! Tune in to this week’s show as we discuss our fallen co-host and how he’s doing with the Educator News Network. Live updates throughout the show.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
This ninth edition of Saturday Night’s Main Event took place December 14, 1986 (aired January 3, 1987) at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut for 10,000 fans. A huge match takes place tonight as Hulk Hogan defends his world title against Mr Wonderful Paul Orndorff inside of a classic WWF big blue steel cage. This is an iconic match of the era and we give it all of the love and attention it deserves.
In other conversations, we discuss Orndorff as a potential world champion. The build up to WrestleMania III. The Hogan vs Heenan feud. Opinions on faces vs heels when we were kids and now as adults. What makes a King? And how much money would it take to avoid a fight?
Saturday Night’s Main Event 9 matches include:
- Hulk Hogan vs Paul Orndorff (with Bobby Heenan) in a Steel Cage match.
- Randy Savage (with Miss Elizabeth) vs George “the Animal” Steele.
- Junkyard Dog vs Harley Race (with Bobby Heenan).
- Adrian Adonis (with Jimmy Hart) vs Roddy Piper.
- Blackjack Mulligan vs Jimmy Jack Funk.
