A RARE FIND UNCOVERED ABOUT “SATURDAY NIGHT’S MAIN EVENT” …

From “Hardcore” Harry Simon …

I’ve been binge-watching¬†Saturday¬†Night’s Main Event on the WWE Network. I just finished the February 1988 “Main Event” special where Andre The Giant beat Hulk Hogan with the double-Hebner shenanigans.

The live show ended with Vince McMahon abruptly signing off during the Strike Force vs. Hart Foundation match for the Tag Team Title. However, if you watch it on the Network, it stays with the in-ring action for another minute and actually shows the finish. Originally, the show cut off in mid-match due to the time constraints of being a live special. The match was only a few minutes to begin with and the commentators only talked about the Hogan-Andre angle during it. To my knowledge, this is the first time the finish of the tag match has ever been shown anywhere.
