Final WWF PPV appearance for Butch Reed, who left the WWF shortly after this event, upset that a promised feud with Randy Savage was canceled. He later joined the NWA (which would become WCW), and was vocally critical of the WWF and its booking of African American wrestlers.See more »

Wrestlemania IV 1988, 6 October 2005
Author: wrestlingsitewebmaster from England

I quite enjoyed Wrestlemania IV. It was a change from all the singles matches that bothered us all at WM I, II and III. Once again Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse 'the body' Ventura were fantastic on the commentary booth.

This WM featured too many matches to write about, but they were all watchable. Ted DiBiase's matches were all outstanding (yes even the one with Jim Duggan) and Ricky Steamboat vs Greg Valentine was fantastic.

The main event was 'Macho Man' Randy Savage vs 'Million Dollar Man' Ted DiBiase and it was good. Things picked up when Hulk Hogan came to the aid of Savage resulting in Savage picking up the WWE Undisputed Championship.

Overall Grade - B
