History of Saturday Night’s Main Event and Clash of the Champions Now in Paperback, Plus Price Drops

Before we get to these new ones, a quick update: I’ve lowered the prices on all of the books. I was looking at them the other day and the prices were just too high. I probably wouldn’t pay that much for them and I have no idea why anyone else should be expected to either. […]

New Column: Happy (and Sad) Holidays

Since everyone has already talked about Goldberg vs. Lesnar (which I’ll get to when I can wrap my head around the thing), here’s something a little lighter this week. http://wrestlingrumors.net/kbs-review-happy-and-sad-holidays/

New Column: How Did I Live Without You?

In other words, it’s me raving about the Network again with some bonus history.

New E-Book: KB’s History of Saturday Night’s Main Event

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, […]

Thought of the Day: Hang On A Minute

I’ll be right back.

On This Day: November 26, 1988 – Saturday Night’s Main Event #18: Andre vs. Savage

Saturday Night’s Main Event 18 Date: November 26, 1988 Location; ARCO Arena, Sacramento, California Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jesse Ventura We’re in the middle of Savage’s title reign here and tonight he defends against Andre.

Saturday Night’s Main Event #3 Date: November 2, 1985 Location: Hersheypark Arena, Hershey, Pennsylvania Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jesse Ventura This is in between the first and second Manias so you can tell that this isn’t going to be anything really special.

Saturday Night’s Main Event 28 Date: October 13, 1990 Location: Toledo Sports Arena, Toledo, Ohio Commentators: Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper This is just after Summerslam 90 where Hogan made his triumphant return.

On This Day: October 4, 1986 – Saturday Night’s Main Event #7: 1986 In A Nutshell

Saturday Night’s Main Event 7 Date: October 4, 1986 Location: Coliseum at Richfield, Richfield, Ohio Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jesse Ventura This is more or less the beginning of Hogan vs. Orndorff and not much else. We’re not quite to the build for Mania but we’re getting closer. Not a lot is going on here as […]
