WWE looks to be considering reviving a television program from the 80’s.
It is being reported that WWE has filed a trademark for “Saturday Night’s Main Event”. This was the name of a professional wrestling television program that the WWE had on NBC from 1985 to 2008.
The trademark was supposedly filed on August 11 and was filed under four Goods & Services categories that include: pre-record media, graphics and music via a global computer network and wireless devices, photos, toys, and clothing.
Saturday Night’s Main Event was a 90-minute wrestling show that the WWE, when it was still WWF, produced for NBC. It was not a weekly show but ran for free on NBC at certain special dates.
The first run of Main Event began on May 11, 1985, till around 1992. The show was revived for a limited run on NBC from 2006 to 2008.
Saturday Night’s Main Event was considered a “prime” show, featuring three or four matches with established stars battling each other. The show featured title defenses and even specialty matches such as steel cage matches.
Episodes of Saturday Night’s Main Event are currently available for streaming on the WWE Network.
