Originally a house show that was later released as WWF Coliseum home video, The Big Event took place at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto, Canada on August 28, 1986. With Junkyard Dog vs Adrian Adonis, Jake Roberts vs Ricky Steamboat, and Hulk Hogan vs Paul Orndorff as just a few of the show’s big matches, and a live crowd of over 60,000 people (or 70,000 depending on who’s counting), the show definitely had potential.
