The Summerslam You Thought You'd Never See!
Did You Know?
According to Road Warrior Animal, the tag team match of the Legion of Doom vs Money Inc. was originally scheduled midway through the show, but was moved to the first match on the recommendation of Animal, after his partner Hawk had been up all night drinking & drugged out, and was starting to lose consciousness. On the way to the ring, L.O.D. rode motorcycles, and Hawk, in his inebriated state, parked his motorcycle right next to Animal, trapping Animal's leg with the hot tailpipe of the bike, scalding Animal's leg. Animal proceeded to take part in the match with his tights melted onto his leg. See more
