Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 112 min (DVD)

CAP CENTER - 8/17/85 (Outstanding house show from the summer of '85 - way better than it looks on paper. Helping it along is the simply excellent commentary from Jesse Ventura & Gorilla Monsoon. If you ever want to know why they were so great, watch this show. They aren't over-the-top, they don't force anything, they call the action accurately, and they share actual insights into the action - just like you would for a real sport. This is the 24/7 version of the show, with all matches intact. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Johnny Valiant vs Steve Lombardi Cousin Junior vs Moondog Spot Adrian Adonis vs Tony Garea Terry Funk vs Sal Bellomo (Good match! Waaaaaaay better than I expected.) Ricky Steamboat & Junkyard Dog vs Don Muraco & Mr. Fuji (Excellent match that starts off with a wild brawl that gets the crowd HOT. Great stuff, a MUCH better match than the one they had in Boston 2 weeks prior.) Hart Foundation vs Swede Hanson & Lanny Poffo (What should have been a squash ends up as a competitive match that sees the Harts "lucky" to win after Hanson hits a big piledriver on Bret Hart.) Randy Savage vs Rick McGraw (Another good match, this one features some outstanding selling by Randy Savage as he gives a CLINIC in selling a leg injury.) Hulk Hogan vs Brutus Beefcake (Beefcake must be friends with Hogan, as he jobs - but not to the big legdrop...)
