We take you back to the TBS Studios in Atlanta in 1987 where we first heard from and then saw in action, "The Total Package" Lex Luger.

Make no mistake, this was not his first time wrestling on television, as he had been a part of Championship Wrestling from Florida, but this would be his first time on a national broadcast.

We will also hear from Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, the Four Horsemen, the World Tag Team Champions--Manny Fernandez and Rick Rude, Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express, the Road Warriors and Ivan Koloff as he brings in Vladimir Petrov to deal with nephew Nikita Koloff (who has gone soft with the American way)!

As always, it is a lot of fun to look back at some key moments in pro wrestling history.
