This is kinda funny in light of some of the discussion I've seen recently about the WWF schedule around the time of the big expansion in '84 when Vince had the crews flying all over hell and back every day of the week.  Listen to the exchange between 1:00 and 2:00 at the beginning of the show.  Monsoon greets the crowd and introduces Mean Gene.  Gene responds by saying "I'm still stuck in a taxi...or an elevator...or an's MURDER!".

(pause).  This is the best part.  Monsoon gives an awkward chuckle and says something like, "I know what you mean, I just got back from Chicago.", but you know in his mind he's saying, "Oh just shut the fuck up."

God, Okerlund was brutal calling matches.  Was Vince's idea that Okerlund would do play-by-play and Monsoon would be the color guy? 

"Well, maybe I like the nightlife just a little bit more than I like the damn gym, jack! And when you're makin' $500,000 a year, there ain't no reason to change what you're doing." - Dusty Rhodes, 1/4/1986
