TAPE 30

Quality: VG/EX

Length: 40 min (DVD)

WWF CHICAGO - 5/24/85 (What we have here is a partial house show that aired as part of the 5/27/85 episode of Oprah Winfrey's "AM Chicago" show. This is just before she became a national star. Oprah & Jerry Valiant do commentary and are just atrocious. Valiant adds nothing while Oprah just says "ooh!" every once in a while which is probably to be expected. She at least is having a great time and clearly enjoys the product a lot. Quality on this is VG/EX, super-nice for a very rare show.)
Tito Santana & Junkyard Dog vs Greg Valenting & Brutus Beefcake (Clipped - Of all the guys in this match, the WWF decides to have their I-C champion - Valentine - get pinned cleanly?) Oprah Interview w/Jesse Ventura (Ventura is great as he talks about playing golf with his earrings on and is just generally a riot.) Oprah Interview w/Ivan Putski Jesse Ventura vs Ivan Putski (Typical crap match from these two with a finish I've always hated - two guys fighting outside, one beats count, other gets counted out. Why do I hate it? Because the ref stops counting in that situation in most matches. That's why I hate it when it's done in a countout finish.) Oprah Interview w/Don Muraco & Mr Fuji (Muraco, as are all the guys interviewed on this show, is great here. Oprah, too - she's enthusiastic without being stupid and is having fun and makes the interviews fun too.) Oprah Interview w/Hulk Hogan (This one is a riot. Oprah actually asks Hogan if he "always talks like that" to which Hogan says "that's just for the cameras", LOL) Hulk Hogan vs Don Muraco (Clipped - Hogan scores the pinfall without using the legdrop!)
