Description - The Main Event by Brian Shields
The 1980s ushered in the golden age of professional wrestling as television shifted from the scratchy, black and white screened grapplers of the earlier years to colorful, larger-than-life men like Hulk Hogan, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Jessie 'The Body' Ventura. Professional wrestling became the place to be, and the place to be seen. This was the era that cemented WWE as home to the best wrestlers on the planet. MAIN EVENT: WWE IN THE RAGING 80s dips into those years and reveals the most celebrated matches that are portrayed as not just the best of the eighties but the best of the ages. Everyone knows Hulk Hogan. This was his era. This is when he wrestled his most famous matches. But Hogan wasn't a lone figure -- he wrestled against and with some of the most colorful men in the business. Now, in vivid detail, their stories are told, from Andre the Giant to 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and many, many more. Capturing every major Superstar and covering every major event, this is the retrospective that every wrestling fan with fond memories of this era will want to own.
