This was during my "dark period" of being a comic book nerd. Was freshman year of HS, so baseball, pro wrestling, and the recently released Nintendo were my jam.  Didn't get back into comics again until college.

This went down on June 5, 1987- not sure how I remember this, but my dad took my buddy and me to a WWF show at the Rosemont Horizon that night. It was a Saturday if I recall. Main Event was Hogan vs. HonkyTonk, but HTM did not wear the IC belt (and nobody knew at the time in the crowd), since that match wouldn't air until the following weekend. I think I knew he had beat Steamboat earlier in the week from calling Coach Kurt's hotline (976-6363!).

"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
