‘We’re gonna have a SummerSlam Online Viewing Party, whether we want to or not’
Come join us as we watch SummerSlam together and celebrate the most iconic moment in British Wrestling history.
As we can’t get into our venues to run our normal viewing parties for SummerSlam, we are going online instead for an online viewing party. Not only that, we are going to make the night a huge celebration of SummerSlam 1992 and the iconic moment The British Bulldog won the Intercontinental Title at SummerSlam 1992.
In partnership with Wrestle Merch Central we have some extra special guests to help us give you guys a unique experience for the night.
As with our usual viewing parties, we will start the night at 8PM UK time to give you guys four hours of extra special content in the run up to the PPV itself.
Here’s what we have in store:
– We will be hosting a watch-along of the entire SummerSlam 1992 main event featuring extra special guest contributors, Harry & Georgia Smith – The children of the late, great Davey Boy Smith. They will be discussing the match with us and telling some wonderful stories about their father’s career.
– Q&A/Interview with Diana Smith, Davey Boy’s ex wife who will relieve the event and the build up from the families perspective. What was it like to have her family members take the spotlight in the biggest moment in SummerSlam history? What feelings were going through their head during the whole period?
– Live interview with Martin Goldsmith. Martin is the man responsible for bringing the then WWF to the UK in the first place and alongside his brother Harvey, they were the promoters that made SummerSlam 1992 in the UK happen. Hear Martin tell the stories of how they convinced Vince McMahon to bring the event to Wembley as well as some of the crazy stories from the day of the event.
– We are also planning a bunch more special interviews. Keep your eyes on our social media for announcements.
– Of course it wouldn’t be a Hooked On Wrestling viewing party without a big ‘Wrestling Pub Quiz’. Paul & Rob will be hosting a SummerSlam night special version of their regular LIVE Sunday quiz with big prizes for random entrants taking part.
– At midnight, SummerSlam will begin. As you all watch on the WWE Network, our Hooked On Wrestling team will be watching along with you and discussing the action and the history of SummerSlam. They might even have a few guests to help them along….
So please mark yourself as ‘going’ to the event to receive updates over the next few weeks. The whole event is FREE and will be broadcast on the Hooked On Wrestling Facebook page as well as the YouTube channel. You will of course need the WWE Network if you wish to watch along SummerSlam 2020 with us.
We can’t wait. We might not be in the bars with you guys but this is undoubtedly the next most exciting thing.
We have decided that this event will act as a fundraiser for The Cauliflower Alley Club, the society dedicated to helping former wrestlers and their families who have fallen on hard times. Our goal is to raise £1000 before the first bell of SummerSlam and we request than anyone joining us on SummerSlam night makes a donation in order to give back in a small way to those that have brought us so much joy.
