Did You Know?

Trivia

Brutus Beefcake was originally supposed to be the challenger for the Intercontinental Championship. He was attacked and had his head cut open by "Outlaw" Ron Bass's spur after a match on "WWF Superstars of Wrestling." This development came after boxes for the Coliseum Video VHS release were printed, on which Brutus appears as the named challenger to The Honky Tonk Man. A corrective sticker, declaring The Ultimate Warrior as challenger, was placed over Brutus' name. The main reason for the change to the match was because, according to an interview he conducted in 2005, Beefcake claimed that the Warrior threatened to leave the WWF if he didn't get the title shot, and so Beefcake stepped aside and made the best of it, which resulted in his storyline injury.

WWE Summerslam 1988
25 June 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is my favourite WWE PPV ever. It was just brilliant, I mean they promoted a boxing match during the PPV and the commentary team of Gorilla Monsoon and Superstar Billy Graham was just outstanding.

Match 1 saw The Fabulous Rougeou Brothers against The Dynamite Kid and The British Bulldog in a very good match. No one won because the time limit expired. Next up Ken Patera tried to defeat Bad News Brown, but to no avail, but this was a decent effort. Next up Ravishing Rick Rude defeated Junk Yard Dog via DQ when Jake 'the snake' Roberts ran down to ringside and wrestled with Rude! In the match Rude came off the top rope and showed his other tights of Roberts and his wife! The fans went nuts for Roberts!

Next up Nikolai Volkoff and Boris Zuckoff tangle with Barbarian and The Warload. The Powers of Pain won a decent battle. Then we are treated to an interview with the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history, even to this day as The Honky Tonk Man blables on about how he can defeat anyone. Little did he relise what was waiting for him!

The next match saw The Hart Foundation battle Demolition in a neat and good match. The Honky Tonk Man came out. Note: Brutus Beefcake was meant to wrestle him but for storyline purposes he had been attacked by The Outlaw Rob Bass. The all of a sudden The Ultimate Warrior's music hit! The fans went nuts and Warrior slammed Honky and took the 1-2-3! The fans went absolutely off their heads!

Next up Big Bossman battled Koko B Ware in a good match even though the result was never in doubt! Bossman won (obviously)

Then Jake Roberts defeated Hercules with the DDT!

Then the main event pitted Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage against Ted DiBiase and Andre the Giant in a hard hitting match up. Hogan and Savage won!

Such a brilliant PPV, but it's sad to say that the following who were on the PPV are no longer with us:

British Bulldog Rick Rude Junk Yard Dog Hercules Andre the Giant Big Bossman Gorilla Monsoon Elizabeth (Randy Savage's manager) Joey Morella (Robert 'Gorilla Monsoon' Morella's son who was a referee)

RIP

Bulldogs/Rougeous - 9/10 Patera vs Brown - 7/10 Bossman vs Koko - 7.5/10 Warlord/Barbarian vs Volkoff and Zuckoff - 8/10 Warrior vs Honky

  • 7.5/10 Hercules vs Roberts - 7.5/10 Hart Foundation vs Demolition -


8/10 Rude vs JYD - 7.5/10 Hogan/Savage vs Andre/DiBiase - 8/10
