I agree that the Snake-Macho match is the best match on SNME up until that point. IMO, it will eventually be surpassed by Hart-Savage November 87

With the full MSG shows being harder to find lately, Ive been following along with you guys watching all the Prime Times on the Network. Its a great companion to the podcast and also fun viewing when considering the GWWE project.

I seem to recall reading that it was around this time that SNME was sort of separated from the rest of the company, in terms of promotion.   I recall it was very rare when Superstars and Challenge would hype one and likewise, they didn't seem to hype PPV"s all that often.  I think I remember reading this was done on purpose, SNME had to be kept separate from the rest of the company in a sense, in order to make NBC play ball.

I was thinking that, and theyd be proven right, they figured that the hype on their regular shows would be enough to bring in a massive audience as well.

But yeah, I can see it more of an keep this a separate entity thing for NBC.

Maybe thats why they had Fight Forever with the Savage-Steele fued on the SNMEs. Granted they did Jake-Savage, but its almost like they wanted to be safe especially knowing what was coming in a few weeks, as opposed to running someone fresh that might throw a wrench into the plans for the title change due to a massive reaction versus Savage?

This seems to be the answer I am seeing most. Basically NBC didn't want to be used as an infomercial and wanted strong programming.

 

It was still jarring how far they went not to mention it... like once or twice probably could have been OK.

I watched the Prime Time prior to WM3 as well, and I was kind of surprised at the lack of push to purchase the PPV as well.  They did mention it more than the SNME, but the matches they showed weren't really a huge push towards the PPV.  Bobby and Guerilla had their usual back and forth about Hogan and Andre, and they mentioned the show was 6 days away, but they didn't come out and say go buy the PPV (or mention it right before they went off the air).  I found it a little odd.  Maybe there are some commercials that are edited out of the Network that we don't see.  Or, maybe I'm just so used to being beaten over the head with things now it just felt like they didn't push it that hard.

 

I will add I loved that episode of SNME.  The battle royal was awesome, loved the Piper stuff, really enjoyed the Roberts/Bundy match, and all things Macho Man.

My memory is uber hype mode for PPV really begins when the numbers start dropping after Summerslam 89.
