I attended this card. This is where I believe the burial of Bigelow began. Also, my brother and I were shocked to see Bundy with hair. It would be his final match for several years. When leaving the garden that night, almost the entire crowd was walking out screaming Hooooo!!!!! I mean Duggan was over big time. It was a fun card and your podcast brought back memories of that evening

While the Garden was only half full that night, I’m not sure if there was crowd sweetening. I was there and the crowd went apeshit throughout the entire Duggan-Bass match. The crowd chanted ho throughout the entire match and Duggan was the most over act on the card. Like I said earlier, the crowd exiting the Garden chanted ho in unison. Best match Bass had in his entire WWF run. They should have had Duggan go over. Bass was going nowhere

I don't know why you guys keep calling the Warrior tag the main event.  It definitely wasn't.  Dibiase-Bigelow was the main and promoted as such.  Originally this would have been a WWF title match, but it was decided to cut Dibiase's crooked reign much shorter than intended due to low houses, which this half full MSG would support.

 

At the time Warrior, Muraco and Reed were all doing pretty much nothing and Bundy had been gone for a few months (his last SNME aired weeks after it was shot).

 

Good podcast besides that nitpick, though to me this card is the very definition of meh.  I've seen a few different six man cage tags and sadly they aren't quite as good as you might hope.

You make a great point. When I attended MSG shows between 83-94, the last match wasn’t always the main event

Isn't there something odd about the finish of Hogan and Race? It looks like the legdrop was filmed in post. Perhaps something to do with Harleys injury.
