One of the most common complaints wrestling fans have today is how
much content there is to watch. WWE alone has at least seven hours of
wrestling TV a week. For over twenty years, we’ve gotten used to
wrestling airing every Monday night with some of the biggest stars in
the sport squaring off. However, things weren’t always the same. Back
in the 1980’s, wrestling television was based around the idea of squash
matches. Most shows featured a big name against an unknown and matches
against other stars were almost unheard of.
Things began to change in 1985. Powered by the strength of
Wrestlemania and Hulkamania, the WWF was able to air a series of
specials on NBC, featuring matches between big name stars and even title
matches, all for free. The shows were major successes and helped push
the company into their golden era, sending professional wrestling to
heights no one had ever seen possible.
In this book, I’ll be looking at all thirty six episodes of the
series, as well as the five Main Event specials, breaking down every
match, segment and show as a whole. As usual I’ll be providing play by
play, historical context and analysis of every show.
The books runs over 300 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or
the equivalent in other currencies. If you don’t have a Kindle or e-book
reader, there are several FREE apps you can use to read it on pretty much any electronic device. You can find those from Amazon here.
