SPORTS | Wrestling bumps ‘SNL’ this weekend

In Internet, NBC, Programming, Saturday Night Live, Scheduling, USA Network on August 17, 2007 at 11:50 am

This Saturday, in place of the requisite Saturday Night Live rerun, NBC and the WWE present Saturday Night’s Main Event, a live, 90-minute special presentation.

Before the days of Smackdown, it was rare that modern pro wrestling aired on the broadcast networks.

But Saturday Night’s Main Event bucked that trend in the ’80s, and as this Wikipedia entry explains, the show is back as a series of specials as part of the deal that brought WWE’s flagship show, Monday Night RAW, back to NBC Universal-owned USA Network.
