Why you Need the Big Event
The main reason you want this is because it took place before Wrestlemania III took place and it was at the height of the WWF’s big time match making ability. The show was held in Canada and there was a legitimate 65,000 plus people in attendance. You think today’s attendance records were big, they have aerial coverage of the stadium, and it’s insane how many people packed in to see this one. I’m not sure if it was shown on pay per view or antying, but this coliseum video release features some great moments.
The best matches on the card in my view are:
Jake “The Snake” Roberts vs. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in a no rules SNAKE PIT MATCH! This has to be where Raven go the “Raven’s Rules” match, right? Great match between the two, and something you have to see. This is Roberts at his best.
Don Muraco vs. Haku was a good one too, for what it was. Muraco was still young and could go, and Haku was not bloated or old, so you get an interesting match up of old school styles.
Hulk Hogan vs. Paul Orndorff for the WWF title definitely put butts in the seats. This match was another classic between the two, and shows off just how big Hogan was in the 1980s. Orndorff was no joke, and I don’t know why they never gave him the title, I loved his schtick as Mr. Wonderful and thought he could go toe to toe with Hogan.
