This Day in Wrestling History
This day 24 years ago the WWE had a PPV only they didn’t know then that the PPV would become a staple of their company for the next 24 years. I am talking about the Biggest Party of the Summer, Summerslam today the first Summerslam was held 24 years ago. The Card featured a multitude of future WWE Hall of Famers and also was the night that Honky Tonk Man’s record setting reign came to an end. To that point Honky held the title for 454 days which is a record that still stands to this day in WWE. Honky went into the show thinking he was going to face Brutis Beefcake but he didn’t and instead he fought Ultimate Warrior. Warrior won in 31 seconds thereby ending not only Honky Tonk’s record setting reign but the only time Honky Tonk would hold the title in his career. The Main event of the show was the Mega Powers (Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage) vs Money Inc. (Ted Dibiase & Andre The Giant). This match set the tone for the next 24 years of Summerslam that would follow this show.
