• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (May 27, 1985) – WWF on A.M. Chicago
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation was featured on an episode of ‘A.M. Chicago’.
“A.M. Chicago” was a local talk and variety show in the Windy City starting in 1974. By 1983, the show was last in the ratings, which prompted the station manager to hire Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah had risen from an abused past in the Milwaukee ghettos into becoming a charismatic young newscaster then working in Tennessee.
The move created a sensation no one saw coming as Winfrey took “A.M. Chicago” to number 1 in the market, and by September 1986 the show was nationally syndicated.
This episode takes look at the “A.M. Chicago” cameras following Oprah as she ventured into a WWF show at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois on May 24, 1985, 3 days before this aired.
“Gentleman” Jerry Valiant calls the action at ringside with Oprah.
You can find the match-card below:
– The Junkyard Dog & Tito Santana vs. Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake
– Ivan Putski vs. Jesse “The Body” Ventura
– WWF Champion Hulk Hogan vs. Don Muraco
