Best WWE TV program!
7 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Every time Saturday Nights Main Event was on i was glued to the edge of my set my favorite wrestlers Hulk Hogan, Jake the Snake, Macho Man, Ted Dibaise it was one of those WWE programs thats didn't have a weekly event but when it came on you were excited always loved when they had the Main Event first than went down the card unique and different favorite Match of all time has to be Macho Man Vs Honky Tonk Man a great storyline and amazing drama really helped Honky tonk man prove he could stick in the Main Events also the British Bulldogs Jake the snake and Rick rude feud Andre and Hogan in the Main event still the highest WWE Event on Reg TV! between 85-90 SNME was a hit i think it didn't give enough excitement in the later years 91-92 were my least favorite than it faded out the new versions were terrible it didn't have the same energy or excitement i think all in all if you want to see great matches storytelling and get high doses of nostalgia you need to look no further than Saturday Nights Main Event!
