What the World Was Watching: WWF The Main Event – February 23, 1990

Vince McMahon and Jesse Ventura do commentary and they are live from Detroit, Michigan.  According to thehistoryofwwe.com, the show drew a crowd of 21,000 fans.  The broadcast drew a rating of 12.8 (roughly 20.9 million viewers), an increase from the previous year’s telecast that pulled a 11.6 rating (19.9 million viewers) when the show was headlined by the Mega Powers facing the Twin Towers.

Gene Okerlund interviews Randy Savage and Sensational Sherri.  Savage says that he is happy that Mike Tyson pulled out as the referee because he found out that Tyson’s great grandmother is a Hulkamaniac so that made him biased.  Savage warns Buster Douglas to call it down the middle or royal authority will rain down on him.  Sherri closes by vowing that Hulk Hogan is not going to go into WrestleMania VI as world champion.
