* Website/{{WrestleCrap}}: The infamous ''Heroes of Wrestling'' [=PPV=] was originally supposed to have a main event of Wrestling/{{Yokozuna}} vs. King Kong Bundy. However, [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]]' infamous drunken performance in his "match" with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart got it hastily turned into a tag match, with Bundy/Neidhart vs. Jake/Yoko. The monsters were tagged in, with Bundy splashing and pinning Jake, who wasn't the legal man, and the ref quickly counting to three to end the whole mess. Yoko never even got into the ring (due to the fact that he had grown so fat that he couldn't get a wrestling license since he couldn't get the needed medical clearance), and the show went off the air some 22 minutes ahead of schedule without even a farewell from the announcers.
