WWE TV programming could be adding new content to its weekly schedule, with the possible return of Saturday Night’s Main Event , a show that was very successful in the late 80’s.
This was reported by Pro Wrestling Times, in a report that reads the reporter Sean Blake of the website SportsKeeda , and this is what is mentioned:
“According to the Pro Wrestling Times, WWE can bring back Saturday Night’s Main Event, a show that was once a public favorite and would now be airing occasionally instead of Saturday Night Live on NBC, probably from the spring of 2018.
“Saturday Night’s Main Event was originally broadcast from 1985 to 1992, being a tremendous success in audience for NBC, the most notable rating was that of February 5, 1988, show that was starred by a rematch of WrestleMania III between Hulk Hogan and André The Giant . This show attracted 33 million viewers and had a rating of 15.2 points, which is still the highest rating for a television show in the history of professional wrestling.
“The show returned in 2006 with fights and fighters from both Raw and SmackDown and eventually from ECW when it joined as a brand. The program was then performed periodically until 2008. The main key to Saturday Night’s main event was that it had fights that could only be seen at pay-per-view (PPV) events and were broadcast for free on television Open.
“Some notable fights were the rematch of WrestleMania III by the WWE Championship between Hulk Hogan vs.. André the Giant, John Cena and Triple H vs. Kurt Angle, Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio, Shawn Michaels vs. Shane McMahon in a Street Fight and Batista’s first fight after his return, where he joined World Champion Rey Mysterio and Bobby Lashley to fight Mark Henry, Finlay and King Booker.
“There is a lot of time between now and spring of 2018, which means that WWE plans could change at any time, especially with this report coming out to the public with a lot of advantage. However, if they decide to do the event, there would be no doubt that it would be a success as their previous versions. “
