TAPE 961

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.4 hrs (2 DVD)

MSG - 12/30/85 (Decent, but not great, MSG house show. This is the 24/7 version of the show. I've got a DVD master so VQ is perfect.)
SD Jones vs Ron Shaw B. Brian Blair vs Jim Neidhart (20-min draw; they ran singles matches between the halves of the Killer Bees and Hart Foundation on this show. Tell me, would you rather have 20 minutes of Blair - who I enjoy quite a bit - vs Neidhart or Brunzell vs Hart? Yeah, gimme 20 of Brunzell/Hart, too. BUT NOOOOOOO...) Hercules Hernandez vs Jose Luis Rivera Adrian Adonis vs Lanny Poffo Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage (Good match with a ton of heat. Savage in 1984/85 was really something special - an athlete the likes of which wrestling fans had never seen before.) Big John Studd vs Tony Atlas (Weird finish to this as Studd goes for the pin and gets a 2 count and they ring the bell. It seems like both guys are expecting the match to continue but they give Studd the win anyway.) Haiti Kid vs Butch Cassidy Bret Hart vs Jim Brunzell (Good, but not great, match) Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake vs Hillbilly Jim & Uncle Elmer (yep, this is crap)
