The House Show SNME: Uncle Elmer’s Wedding

Take off your shoes and get ready for the most entertaining episode of WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event!

Your wedding venue is Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NJ where 8,000 guests have RSVP for October 5, 1985.

Only two episodes into the series and can anything beat this show? The highlight of the evening is Uncle Elmer’s wedding! The beautiful dress. Mean Gene on piano. Fans pelting the ring with trash and batteries.

Plus one of the best brawls we’ve ever seen as “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and “Mr Wonderful” Paul Orndorff beat the hell out of each other throughout the building.

We debate the use of flags. What can and cant be done with an evil foreigner character today? Appropriate attire for a wedding. The under-rated Lanny Poffo. Plus exposed feet talk!

Saturday Nights Main Event 2 matches include:

  • Hulk Hogan (WWF Champion) vs Nikolai Volkoff (with Classy Freddie Blassie).
  • Uncle Elmer (with Hillbilly Jim and Cousin Junior) vs Jerry Valiant.
  • Paul Orndorff vs Roddy Piper.
  • Tony Atlas and Andre the Giant (with Captain Lou Albano) vs King Kong Bundy and Big John Studd (with Bobby the Brain Heenan).
  • Brutus Beefcake and Greg Valentine (WWF tag team champions) vs Lanny Poffo and Tony Garea.
