Trivia

Greg Valentine actually pinned Hercules during their match by putting his feet on the ropes, but ring announcer Ronnie Garvin refused to give the match to Valentine and announced Hercules the winner, but Valentine won ultimately. 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

The Genius: From the Meadowlands Arena to the multitudes beyond, I, The Genius, full of glory and renown, share my wondrous words of wisdom with the SummerSlam spectacular to validate my mortar board and gown. Brutus Beefcake and Hulk Hogan shall be running for their lives, the highest card they're holding is a deuce. They are totally unqualified to match the royal flush that shall be coming from the Macho Man and Zeus. "Scary Sherri" is the term that Brutus Beefcake used in slander, and he had the nerve ...

WWE Summerslam 1989
2 October 2005 | by wrestlingsitewebmasterSee 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
