The show begins with a video hyping the matches between No Way Jose and Killian Dain and Hideo Itami and Oney Lorcan. We get the opening credit with their new theme song and then its on to Full Sail where the crowd is already chanting “NXT! NXT!” and then it’s on to the ring for the first match of the night.

Mickie James vs. Princess KimberLee (Chikara National Pro Wrestling Day February 6, 2016)

Posted on

Kimber Lee is the Chikara Grand Champion here, but this is a non-title match. Decent grappling in the first few minutes before Mickie James gets annoyed at her inability to put Kimber Lee away and starts heeling it up. At one point she kicks Kimber Lee in the midsection and shouts, “NO BABIES FOR YOU!” which is horrible and hilarious.

Less than a year after this match took place both women would be in the WWE with Mickie James facing Asuka for the NXT Women’s Championship in a one off match that impressed the powers that be so much she earned herself a spot on the Smackdown roster and Kimber Lee appearing in NXT where she has thus far appeared as “enhancement talent.”

WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event (May 11, 1985)

WWF_Saturday_Night's_Main_Event

The first ever Saturday Night’s Main Event begins with Cyndi Lauper and Wendi Richter discussing strategy. Lauper tells Richter to, “make sure, Wendi, that Moolah doesn’t grab your hair, you know she loves to do that,” while Wendi Richter nods and is like “Right, right…”

We go next to Hulk Hogan and Mr. T. Hogan yells some stuff about his match with Bob Orton while Mr. T uses some sort of weird arm exercise bar thing. Mr. T has on work gloves for some reason. He cuts a promo on Piper and says, “I PITY THAT FOO!” Hogan also pities that fool and then tells us to, “Kick back and relax for Saturday Night’s Main Event!”

Kana & Minoru Suzuki vs. Syuri & Yoshiaki Fujiwara (Kana Produce ProMania Party October 7, 2014)

Posted on Updated on

Before she became the longest reigning champion in NXT history and beat Goldberg’s streak, Asuka wrestled as Kana in Japan. On occasion she would play booker and book her own shows. This match is from one such card.

While other bookers/wrestlers would perhaps be more inclined to book themselves as worldbeaters, Kana here books herself to get roughed up by a 60 something year old Yoshiaki Fujiwara and on occasion, slapped around by her own partner, Minoru Suzuki in this mixed tag team match from 2014.

NXT (May 31, 2017)

NXT has some new theme music this week. It’s pretty generic core of some sort. It kind of reminds me of the old Raw is War theme song. Anyway we’re back in Orlando after spending some time out in Chicago for TakeOver and a more or less disposable episode of NXT last week that saw the debut of The Velveteen Dream and little else. Let’s get down to the ring for action talking!

WWE Saturday Night’s Main Event (August 2, 2008)

When I was a kid Saturday Night’s Main Event was kind of a big deal since most of the televised wrestling matches were King Kong Bundy or Ric Rude or whoever squashing the fuck out of S.D. Jones or some other job guy. If you wanted to see guys who could win taking on other guys who could win you had to order PPVs…or tune in to NBC a couple times a year. It was a decent concept, but it stopped being a thing in ’92.

In 2006 the WWE and NBC brought it back. It ran for a couple years before being replaced by Tribute for the Troops. This is, to date, the final Saturday Night’s Main Event.
