That Main Event was the very first wrestling show I ever recorded.  My dad "failed" each and every time to record SNME on our Betamax (he admitted years later he never tried because he couldn't understand it and didn't want to admit that) but this one was on early enough I was able to stay up and record it.  To this day I can do the commentary word for word I watched those two matches so many darn times as a kid.  It was the only wrestling I had recorded (I never thought to tape the weekly shows as tapes were too hard to get for me) until Summerslam 1990, the first PPV I saw (some of) live.

As for the 3/23/90 the main event is whatever match Hogan had, rarely the last match.   Depending on who you ask this was due to curfew in some buildings, the need to have it happen midway so as to announce next month's card and get max impact or because Hogan didn't want to miss room service at the hotel.
