An Old School WWF Show Could Be Returning

Saturday Night's Main Event WWF WWE SNME

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 16, 2007) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2007, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran The Missing Link (Real name: Dewey Robertson) at the age of 68 due to lung cancer.

Dewey Robertson wrestled for several North American territories during the 60s, 70s & 80s, using different names & characters, before adapting the gimmick of “The Missing Link” in 1983, which he mainly used in Bill Watts’ Mid-South Wrestling, Fritz Von Erich’s World Class Championship Wrestling and Eddie Graham’s Championship Wrestling From Florida, before joining the World Wrestling Federation in 1985.

During his WWF days, The Missing Link was managed by Bobby “The Brain” Heenan and wrestled against WWF Superstars like Ivan Putski, Paul Orndorff, Tony Garea, Salvatore Bellomo and SD Jones.

• An Old School WWF Show Could Be Returning

On Tuesday, August 11, WWE filed new trademarks for “Saturday Night’s Main Event”. While this could mean nothing special, it could also be a hint about this Old School WWF show’s possible return at the same time.

A couple of years ago, WWE did send out a survey to fans to ask them about what kind of programming they’d like to see on the WWE Network, in which Saturday Night’s Main Event was an option.

The idea for it was for WWE house shows to air as Saturday Night’s Main Event every week.
