- Hosted by "Mean" Gene Okerlund in the WWF Sports Control Center (DIG THAT UNNECESSARY CAMEO OF KEVIN DUNN), it's the day of WrestleMania and we've got a hot show this week, including a feature match of The British Bulldogs taking on Barry O and Rene Goulet. Also, this week, Max Maxine, Big John Studd, and Greg Valentine are here, as well as an edition of Piper's Pit. Did I mention WrestleMania is taking place at 1 p.m.? What are you doing home, watching this?! GO TO YOUR LOCAL CLOSED-CIRCUIT AREA AND WATCH WRESTLEMANIA (unless you're one of the few people who had the limited access to something called "Pay-Per-View.").
- WWF Update with Lord Alfred Hayes (this is a WWE Classics version, so there's no blatant ripping off Michael Jackson's music). The Junkyard Dog may love to dance, but he can be deadly in the ring. We get a montage of him dancing with "Grab Them Cakes" dubbed over whatever the real music was (He was using "Another One Bites the Dust", so maybe that was used for the segment).
- Big John Studd vs. Jim Young from the March 16th episode of Championship Wrestling is featured, with the highlight being Andre the Giant running in on the match and walloping Studd.
- "Mean" Gene standing by to run down some of the card for WrestleMania, and we toss it to an interview with Cyndi Lauper and Wendi Richter. Will lightning strike twice in the same building? Lauper calls Moolah a chump and says she's going to keep Moolah out of the ring, and that Leilani isn't half the woman that Wendi is.
- Piper's Pit, with no special guests, just more WrestleMania hype from himself, Orndorff, and Orton. He grabs a toilet seat and puts it on the WrestleMania poster of Hulk Hogan and Mr. T. Orndorff offers Mr. T a banana and calls him a monkey. "We don't want to leave them with egg on their face" says Piper as they crack eggs onto the poster. Piper says these are the heroes people look up to. Orton says his arm is still hurting as he uses the cast to knock over the entire set.
- We're on location from New York City (a.k.a. "Hulk Country") with Hulk Hogan and Mr. T doing more training. Hogan points out the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center. Mr. T wants to see Central Park to get some muggers and jump on them like they're Piper and Orndorff. Hogan and T are next seen jogging and phantom punching "SLOW AND MEAN". Now the icing on the cake, they need the eye of the tiger as they hit the gym (and more stock music playing over what was likely "Eye of the Tiger").
- "Mean" Gene Okerlund runs down the major matches for WrestleMania (Hogan/T vs. Orndorff/Piper, Andre vs. Studd, Rotundo/Windham vs. Sheik/Volkoff, Richter vs. Leilani, and JYD vs. Valentine). No mention of the prelim matches, but we do know Sammartino vs. Beefcake is happening, and on TNT, McMahon noted "all 9 matches have been signed".
- "Mean" Gene standing by for more WrestleMania hype (this is the THIRD time he runs down the card in this hour-long program). The show is NOT available on Cable TV. Lou Albano joins Okerlund for comments on the upcoming Tag Title Match. They expect a rough and tough match, but they can walk out victorious. Windham and Rotundo join the scene with belts in hands. Rotundo hopes they show this match in Iran because the Sheik will be "our hostage on that day... this afternoon." Okerlund already corrected him once that the show "is today." They couldn't do another take?
- "Mean" Gene runs down the card AGAIN. Oh my God, I know it's called hard-sell, but this is too much, especially since All-American ran either late in the morning or around noon, meaning the show begins likely as soon as this broadcast ends! Gene hypes next week's show, including the team-up of Jimmy Snuka and Ricky Steamboat, as well as The Magnificent Muraco in action against "Quick Draw" Rick McGraw, and The Anvil vs. S.D. Jones taped from MSG. Sorry, I don't have this episode, and will likely have to jump around a bit as I cover more 1985.
Final Thoughts: Go watch WrestleMania! Oh, and we got the in-ring debut/return of the British Bulldogs and Mad Maxine, but seriously, this was all about pushing WrestleMania as much as possible in a one-hour block.
