Jim Neidhart vs
Macho Man Randy Savage W/ Sensational Sherri
Savage has a new manager and she is
Sensational! The chemistry is not there just yet but this will be quite the pairing,
I love the idea that Savage simply replaced Elizabeth, claiming that Elizabeth
was nothing special. The magic will be the same with Sherri according to The
Macho Man. Interesting to see Neidhart in a singles match, looks like a fun
contest between two personalities. Savage takes his time, posing and winding up
the fans, we have our first lock-up. Neidhart out-powers Savage, Sherri

with Neidhart smashing his throat off the guard-rail, Diving Elbow Drop from
Savage and The Macho Man is back in the win column.
A whole new dynamic has been added to
Savage’s character, Sherri is enforcing herself from the beginning, allowing
Savage to heel it up. Neidhart gets a lot of offence in there and the crowd
reacts to everything going on in that ring, just a great crowd that’s making
this show a stand-out show.

This was great, we start with
establishing Zeus as a force to be reckoned with, Hogan makes Zeus look like
the strongest man in the WWF. Hogan is a wounded man going into the match and
Bossman takes full control. Bossman batters Hogan, believably and in an
entertaining fashion. The superplex oh my God, I was not expecting it! It’s a
great spot and the way they lay down not moving for a minute adds to the drama,
they milk the spot for all its worth. The finish is great too, a race to see
who will escape first with the drama at a fever pitch, this might be the best Saturday
Night’s Main Event I have ever seen!

improve dramatically. I am dying for a rematch, hope we get to see it!

Foundation but mainly, The Mega-bucks and The Twin Towers. Hogan and Savage
were the two most popular stars in the WWF and the previous Wrestlemania, Hogan

the coveted WWF Championship. The team fell apart as Hogan carried Elizabeth to
the backstage area during a tag match, Savage felt betrayed and snapped,
attacking Hogan severing their friendship forever. Now, the two collide for the
WWF Championship. Literal chills ladies and gentlemen as I type this, been
looking forward to this ever since they began teaming together. Let’s do this!

popular superstars with the audience for different reasons but this match goes
to show that does not always equal a good match. The match never seemed to get
going for me, it was as if they were going through the motions. Beefcake looked
awkward at times while Dibiase never got into that selling zone where he steals
the show. A big match in terms of personality but that finish leaves me wanting
these two to stay far way from one another.
Bushwhackers vs The Fabulous Rougeaus W/ Jimmy Hart
Bushwhackers as The Sheephearders are one of the most badass tag teams of all
time, look up their work and you will not be disappointed. As The Bushwhackers,

That was a
rough sit through which is crazy because I think it went maybe six minutes but
I felt like turning it off at least three times. How bad can a match be? The
Bushwhackers were beaten to death for the match and a battering ram later, this
match was over. Just a match, I fear for things to come if I must watch that
for a few years but bless them for their work as The Sheephearders.

kicking some serious ass. Loved this match, could have been even better with
Mr. Perfect over The Blue Blazer via Perfect-Plex!
World Tag Team Championship Match) Demolition © vs The Powers of Pain & Mr.
This was crazy
because it is a very memorable heel turn for Fuji and face turn for Demolition
but the match handled it so badly, the fans did not know what to make of it all
when The Powers of Pain were saving Fuji as the duo were babyfaces. It was all
made clear in the post-match interview. So, Fuji sold out Demolition to side
with The Powers of Pain, a double turn was achieved and now Demolition look to
destroy Fuji and his new toys.

the asses of The Powers Of Pain. We had a nice little face in peril segment
with Ax before getting down to the finish which was a whole lot of fun, Fuji
gets the ass-whipping that he has deserved since Survivor Series.

the feud between the two.

Foundation get the win.
Good stuff and
another pay-off to an angle, Bret sells his ass off in this match as per usual.
Valentine is so rough and mean inside of the ring, I just buy all his offense
inside of the ring. Honky is so unlikable, it’s fantastic. Every movement is perfect,
enjoyed this match a lot more than I thought.

Intercontinental Championship Match) The Ultimate Warrior © vs Ravishing Rick
Rude W/ Bobby Heenan
Rude is in
love with himself, after vanquishing Jake Roberts Rude wanted to show that The
Ravishing One had the best body in the WWF. The Ultimate Warrior had something
to say about all that, they has a memorable pose-down where Rude attacked Warrior
from behind and left the champion knocked out. They now collide for Warrior’s
championship, Warrior starts the match battering Rude. Hard Irish whips, Rude is
tossed around the ring like a doll. Warrior poses and talks trash to Rude,
bear-hug from Warrior. Eye rake from Rude and a massive missile dropkick but
Warrior powers out, scoop slam by Warrior.

That was an
odd one for sure, Warrior and Rude are very over and Warrior is being presented
as damn near invincible so how were they going to work this? Well, Warrior dominated
for large portions of the match and that leads to a boring match for me. Rude
sells everything like a boss, making Warrior look great but for me, it became
dull as Rude was being bounced over and over. Warrior never looked in danger to
me so I did not get fully invested in this, might give it a rewatch but not in
love with this match, that’s for sure.

whip to the corner. Heenan misses a corner shoulder thrust and Rooster scoops

Heavyweight Championship Match) Hulk Hogan vs Randy Macho Man Savage©
this one, the two biggest babyfaces in the WWF united in early 1988 forming The
Mega-Powers. With great highs like Summerslam 1988 where the duo took on The
Mega-Bucks, came great lows as Savage felt Hogan wanted Elizabeth and the WWF
Championship. Jealousy and ego ran rampant as Savage became more delusional,
walking out on Hogan and attacking The Hulkster with his WWF Championship on
Saturday’s Night Main Event. Miss Elizabeth is in the middle of these two men,
supporting both as both men want to tear one another apart inside of the ring.
This build has been fantastic, a true memorable one for the WWF and this match
is going to be fantastic.

possibly my favourite Hogan match in the WWF thus far, Savage was tremendous as
a heel in this match. All the little touches from Savage, the mind-games and
the dirty tactics, loved every moment of Savage acting in such fashion. Liked
the work on the throat too, wished it was a bit more drawn out. Could have been
established earlier but Savage identifies the weakness and destroys Hogan’s
throat on his way to the finish. The finish is classic Hogan, an ass-kicking
that would kill a normal man and even the elbow drop could not keep down Hogan.
A fitting end to the war between these two men, Hogan has overcome the bitter
and jealous egomaniac that is The Macho Man Randy Savage, justice has been
Hulk Hogan over Randy Macho Man Savage via Atomic Leg Drop!
That was WWF
Wrestlemania V, the best of the Wrestlemanias that I have reviewed here during
this retrospective. Wrestlemania V has a number of big clashes between big
superstars and a lot of matches that deliver combined with the culmination of
one of the best feuds in WWF history. Two quality tag matches with The Twin Towers
vs The Rockers and The Hart Foundation vs Rhythm & Blues, memorable moments
such as Rick Martel turning on Tito Santana and Piper’s Pit and finally, the
best Hogan match that I have seen in a long time, Hogan and Savage tear the
house down in that main event, this was a rough Mania at times but when it was
good, it was very good. You could trim an hour off this and it could have been
great but as it stands, it is the best Wrestlemania out of the first 5. Thanks
for reading and remember: there’s always another night!
Hello and welcome to another edition
of Seanomaniac Wrestling Reviews, the only wrestling review series on the

Saturday Night’s Main Event before Wrestlemania V, a decision of a lifetime for
Miss Elizabeth. Elizabeth must choose who she will accompany to the ring for
Wrestlemania. Will it be Randy Macho Man Savage or Hulk Hogan? This is also the

Tonnes of matches on tonight’s cards with high stakes and star-power. Rude vs

winner and even Andre has to stop, this could be quite the fight. Roberts

Fine match based on what we saw, two
very over superstars of the WWF colliding. Rude is quality inside of that ring,
egotistical to the max. The gimmick is never in doubt, selling is quality and I
like how they incorporated the Andre vs Jake feud into the match, thought Rude
could have used the win going into Wrestlemania but Beefcake was very popular
and the segment was still awesome.

That was a tonne of fun between Hogan
and Brown, Brown had bucketloads of potential in the WWF as a heel, loved the
way Brown carried himself inside of the ring, not one thing was likeable about
the guy. The promo skills were on show too, short and sweet from Brown but I
loved it. Hogan knocks it out of the park like always, sells everything and
sends the fans home happy, awesome stuff.
