WWF Saturday Night's Main Event - 11/2/85

1) The Junkyard Dog vs. Terry Funk - 5
2) King Kong Bundy & Big John Studd vs. Hulk Hogan & Andre the Giant - 6
3) Randy Savage vs. Tito Santana - 3
4) Ricky Steamboat vs. Mr. Fuji – 4

Man, was this ever a hidden gem! I liked the JYD vs. Funk match more than I should have. It was a really interesting match to watch because of the clash of styles. The tag match wasn’t really that memorable but provided for another fun match to watch. The final two bouts were nothing short of standard TV bouts which ran less that five or six minutes. Now then, this was a Halloween themed show which meant there some pretty funny skits were included in the program. Probably the best one was when Roddy Piper was handing out Halloween candy to kids. It was an absolute smash to watch and proves that vintage WWF programs such as this are just as fun and ten times better than what you see on Raw or SmackDown today.
