[1990-07-28-WWF-Saturday Night's Main Event] Show opening

Recommended Posts

WILD KINGDOM. Vince sure loves his theme shows. Rude/Warrior, Demolition/Rockers and Santana/Perfect. I remember this being the best SNME ever, so let's see if that holds up. The lineup sure is good on paper. They gave away Kerry Von Erich in the opening? WHY?

Alfred Hayes in safari gear and Ventura is dressed like Skinner. They really milk the animal kingdom puns for all they're worth. This is pretty much Jesse's swan song for this yearbook--two weeks later he'd be gone.

The natives are restless. Jesse still around and dressed up. McMahon just in his tuxedo. Warrior to face Rick Rude. Still weird to me that they are matching them up in a singles match this close to PPV. Kerry was in the opening so he has arrived.

Even as a mark, I hated the overdone puns and belabored references we'd get to whatever theme Vince decided on for SNME. A few clever allusions would have done the trick in most cases, but clever and subtle wasn't Vince's style then and still isn't now. Hopefully the creativity in the ring makes up for the lack of same in the writers' room.

Lord Al Hayes is dressed up like he’s off on safari and welcomes us to a special edition of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, before the voice of Vince McMahon corrects him and says it’s the World Wrestling Federation’s ‘Wild Kingdom’ on Saturday Night’s Main Event. Vince runs down the line up (Ultimate Warrior vs Rick Rude, Demolition vs Rockers, Mr Perfect vs Tito Santana and the return of Hulk Hogan) while Jesse Ventura makes animal puns. The opening credits play and we also get a shot of Kerry Von Erich in them, so he’s scheduled for tonight’s episode too.

 

Stacked card with all three titles being defended on the show, an appearance from Hulk Hogan and the SNME debut of Kerry Von Erich.

Love the themed SNME's like this and Oktoberfest. Again, such a stacked card with three potentially awesome matches, plus a high caliber return and debut.
