A great back and forth match with Sheiky selling like crazy for Tito and the crowd loving every minute of it. Another GREAT one was Sheiky's first late '84 Spectrum title shot against Hogan. This match is actually in my personal top 20 of all time. Double juice, even Hogan was working his ass off. Great stuff. 
Yep. Great match. They would have gotten tons more mileage out of Hogan vs The Sheik if they booked the feud like this match (fairly even) as opposed to having no doubt that Hogan would win.

Is that the match were they fucked up the finish and Savage got pinned twice?

RIP Philly Spectrum...where Hulk Hogan had his two-match set with Bob Backlund in 1980 and Fred "Ayatollah" Blassie got pissed at Kal Rudman during a Sheik interview and asked him if he was "goofy"

most memorable (to me) for the Celtics-76'rs rivalry in from 80-83...talk about hot crowds!
