Taped on Halloween night and airing two nights later, it’s the Halloween episode! The heels and babyfaces have taken sides and will compete in challenges throughout the evening. But with a twist! Saturday Night’s Main Event: Halloween Episode takes place at the Hershey Park Arena in Hershey, Pennsylvania on October 31, 1985 (airing November 2) in front of 8,000 fans. Hershey Park means chocolate and there is an abundance of it throughout the show.
Your favorite WWF Superstars are in full Halloween costumes for the backstage competitions. Captain Lou Albano takes on King Kong Bundy in a chocolate pie eating contest. Bobby Heenan takes on Cousin Junior in a pumpkin bobbing competition. Pumpkins inside a tub of chocolate syrup! Roddy Piper entertains some trick r’ treaters. In the finale, the heels battle the faces in the traditional pumpkin pass.
The House Show discusses the charisma of the Junkyard Dog. Did anyone think wrestling was real at this time? How much money would it take for any of us to publicly embarrass ourselves? Who is the real Dream Team?
Plus a debut of a brand new segment involving the main event of the show every week.
Saturday Night’s Main Event: Halloween Episode matches include:
- Terry Funk (with Jimmy Hart) vs the Junkyard Dog.
- Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant (with Captain Lou Albano) vs King Kong Bundy and Big John Studd (with Bobby the Brain Heenan).
- Macho Man Randy Savage (with Miss Elizabeth) vs Tito Santana (WWF Intercontinental champion).
- Ricky the Dragon Steamboat vs Mr Fuji (with The Magnificent Muraco) in a Kung Fu Challenge match.
