Overview

"Introducing your champion, from Venice Beach, California, at three hundred and three pounds — Hulk Hogan! And his challenger . . ."

Hearing those words ring out across the arena meant you were there. It didn't matter if you were there in person, or watching on television or closed circuit. You were in the place where everyone wanted to be. You could feel the crowd; as the tension built, you were swept up and into the action. You knew you were going to witness history. You were experiencing the main event at a live WWE show.

It seemed that wrestling had changed overnight, that the men who entered the squared circle were suddenly larger than life.

Everyone wanted to see the behemoth Hulk Hogan wrestle. And the men who wrestled with and against him were his equals in creating a match and a character that no one would soon forget: Andre the Giant, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Jake "the Snake" Roberts, Sgt. Slaughter. They all kept you pinned to your seat as they were pinning their opponents to the mat. You just knew that you were going to see things that no one had ever seen before.

The eighties was the era that cemented WWE as the place where the best wrestlers on the planet worked. Main Event — WWE in the Raging 80s dips into those years and reveals the most celebrated wrestlers and the matches that will be recalled as not just the best of the eighties but the best of the ages.

    So ya read this

    So just be cause there not having all the good tables match,2 on 7 or stuff like that wwe fans and wwf fans were getting angry just because its not reaching their expectations that doesnt mean wwe is falling apart that means they are trying to leearn which match they are going to do and whos in it. Im sure the wwe buisness and the head of wwe are sure doing a better job that you could do yourself. So shutup about this stuff. It will happen sooner or later but not right at this moment. So let them do their thing,thank for reading if u did :)
