Trivia

The WWF World Championship was again not defended at the PPV, in fact the belt was not put on the line by the champion until SummerSlam 1990. See more »

Goofs

Backstage announcer Gene Okerlund was set to interview then-WWF Intercontinental Champion Rick Rude and Rude's manager Bobby "The Brain" Heenan prior to Rude's title defense against The Ultimate Warrior when the Summerslam backdrop fell backwards. An off-camera Vince McMahon could be heard saying "Nice move", followed by Okerlund yelling "F*** it". See more »

Quotes

[outside the ring, the Ultimate Warrior has hit Ravishing Rick Rude with the Intercontinental Title belt]
Jesse Ventura: This should be a disqualification! That's a disqualication! Where the hell is the referee?
Tony Schiavone: That's outside of the ring, Jesse.
Jesse Ventura: So what?
Tony Schiavone: As much, it could just be a countout here.
Jesse Ventura: What are you gonna tell me, Schiavone? You can shoot somebody outside the ring as long as it's outside the ring?
Tony Schiavone: Well, no...
Jesse Ventura: You know, you're even dumber than Monsoon! I thought Gorilla was the stupidest guy alive!

WWE Summerslam 1989
2 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This Summerslam from the Meadowlands arena, failed to product a worthy PPV. Summerslam in 1988 was way better than this and some of the matches were a colossal bore. Tom 'Zeus' Lister was an actor not a wrestler and it showed. All he could do was shout and smile, he had no wrestling qualities, but then again McMahon liked the guy because of his size. The result? A p*ss poor main event.

Results from the show:

  • The Brain Busters (Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard) defeated The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Heidhart) in a fair but long match.


  • Dusty Rhodes defeated The Honky Tonk Man in a boring match. The only interesting thing in this match was at the end. Jimmy Hart accidentally hit Honky with his own guitar and Dusty got the win.


  • Mr Perfect downed The Red Rooster in a short match.


  • The Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty) and Tito Santana lost to The Fabulous Rougeou Brothers and Rick Martel.


  • The Ultimate Warrior beat Rick Rude to win the Intercontinental Championship in a passable match.


  • King Duggan and Demolition defeated Akeem, Big Bossman and Andre the Giant in a fair match.


  • Greg 'the hammer' Valentine defeated Hercules. However special ring announcer Ronnie Garven declared that Hercules won by DQ after Valentine cheated by putting his feet on the ropes. No one actually knows who the winner was, even to this day!!!


  • 'The Million Dollar Man' Ted DiBiase defeated 'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka in a good match.


  • Hulk Hogan and Brutus 'the barber' Beefcake defeated 'Macho Man' Randy Savage and Zeus in a crap match.


Not good! Overall Grade - C
