My memory can certainly be off after all these years.  I remember seeing SNME and thinking the match was a move-for-move recreation except they added the superplex spot, and telling my father (who was not at all a fan) this and him saying something like "They're not gonna kill themselves if there aren't cameras there.  See, you don't have to go, just watch it on TV."  Truer words have never been spoken for 2019, but he didn't realize that in 1988 it was still an anomaly for the WWF to have a marquee match on free TV, especially one involving Hogan.

In the last 30 years I may be mis-remembering something.  I'm also curious if the match I saw was at MSG or Nassau Colisseum, I can't remember.  I wonder if they did it at both.
