We’re just a couple weeks away from the 35 year anniversary of the very first Saturday Night’s Main Event. The show debuted May 11, 1985, from the Nassau County Coliseum.
So, I’ve turned to Jason Skull of the Skullbuster WrestleCast to take a trip down memory lane and chat more about that first episode. From Hulk Hogan to Roddy Piper to Wendi Richter, the show was stacked.
I’d love to know what you think about this show. Please follow My 1-2-3 Cents on social media: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@my123cents). You can also subscribe to the My 1-2-3 Cents blog and YouTube channel. And follow the Jittery Monkey Facebook page for updates too. Thanks!
Oh, the 80s. What a decade! It’s when my fandom got started. It’s also when my guest co-host Jason Skull from the Skullbuster WrestleCast started watching wrestling. This week he joins me for the first installment of Wrestling with the 80s.
We discuss SummerSlam 1988, the first of its kind. Besides the show, we talk about the buildup to it and what was happening with Jim Crockett Promotions at the same time.
Stride Pro Wrestling has a HUGE event planned on Thursday, Aug. 29 at Rent One Park in Marion. I’m teaming up with Heath Hatton to get a shot at the tag team titles. Learn more here.
This week on the podcast, I had a chance to talk with Tom and Jason Skull. They’re the hosts of the Skullbuster Wrestlecast on Podbean. The “brothers from the same mother” have a quality show each week, covering news and a relevant topic. They’re both fountains of wrestling knowledge, with Jason even being the current Ring General Radio Battlebowl Trivia Champion.
