This special WWF pay-per-view featured the No Holds Barred movie, produced in 1988 by Vince McMahon himself, followed by a pre-taped Steel Cage match between SummerSlam main event opponents, the team of Hulk Hogan & Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake on one side and the team of “The Macho King” Randy Savage & “The Human Wrecking Machine” Zeus on the opposite side.
The cage match was previously taped during a WWF Wrestling Challenge taping on December 12, 1989.
