This week in 1990: Wrestling packs the Blaisdell Arena. About a month before, the WWF calls and asks me to coordinate the event. I ask who is headlining - Hulk Hogan is the reply, so I know we have a winner.

The event sells out in four-and-a half hours. For the World Championship, Hulk defeats “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig.

In other action, The Ultimate Warrior defeats “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Demolition retains its World Tag Team Championship by sending Andre the Giant and Haku home in shame, Rick “The Model” Martel is counted out and loses to Jake “The Snake” Roberts; the Big Boss Man wins by disqualification over “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase; Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka pins Greg “The Hammer” Valentine; and Bret “The Hitman” Hart beats Tino Santana ...

The No. 1 record is Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O’Connor.
