Did You Know?

Prior to the Brain Busters/Hart Foundation match at SummerSlam, The Brain Busters won the Tag Team Championship a month before from Demolition on Saturday Night's Main Event. The match was already signed between them and the Hart Foundation before they won the belts, so it was explained that they were not forced to defend the belts because there was no championship to defend when the match was signed.See more »
Continuity: During the Martel/Rougeau Brothers vs. Rockers/Santana match, Martel pinned Jannetty for the win, despite Jannetty not being the legal man in the match at the time. The legal man for the Rockers/Santana side at the time was actually Shawn Michaels.See more »

WWE Summerslam 1989, 2 October 2005
Author: wrestlingsitewebmaster from England

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
