It was a different time.

Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan's mammoth main event isn't entirely about the ownership of The Mega Powers' former manager Miss Elizabeth, but there's more than a whisper of that in the mid-match angle in which she's harassed all the way backstage.

Of note but not in a way that'll feature here, Jimmy Snuka returned to WWE after years in the (not literal, despite what they'd probably have you believe) wilderness, His first WrestleMania appearance since the inaugural 'Show Of Shows' was greeted with a muted response because the industry had moved on without him, not because people had either knowledge or particular interest in his alleged misdeeds.

It was a different time.

We Need To Talk About Kevin (Nash). Michael can be found in articles or on podcasts extolling the virtues of New Generation WWF, New Japan Pro Wrestling or the new WWE angle they definitely definitely won’t ruin this time.
