–Gene Okerlund and Bobby Heenan handle studio duties for the last Main Event episode of 1995 to feature new matches.
–Eric Bischoff, Bobby Heenan, and Steve McMichael are in the booth and they are live from Augusta, Georgia. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, 8,100 fans attended the show, with 3,000 paying to do so.
–Madusa interrupts the announce crew, holding the WWF Women’s Championship. She says she will always be Madusa and she dumps the WWF Women’s title in the trash can. The promo was terrible, but this was a HUGE shock at the time since Madusa had just competed at Survivor Series weeks earlier and plans called her for to face Aja Kong at the Royal Rumble. This incident had long-term ramifications too as Vince McMahon feared Bret Hart would do the same to the WWF title if he retained at the 1997 Survivor Series, thereby leading to the Montreal Screwjob. Also, the WWF would not restart its women’s division until 1998. WCW would attempt to create its own women’s division with Madusa as a centerpiece, but it never worked out.

It’s the night after SuperBrawl and almost nothing has changed. That’s about as close to the truth as you can get here as no titles changed hands, unless you count a tournament final for a new champion. The big story continues to be Hogan/Sting vs. Flair/Luger as we’re back in the earliest days of this show, minus Randy Savage. Let’s get to it.
