WWE takes over NBC Saturday Night

World
Wrestling Entertainment heats up NBC’s late night summer schedule as
“Saturday Night’s Main Event” returns for a special presentation on
Saturday, June 2nd, from 11:30 p.m. – 1:00 am ET/PT for one of the biggest,
strongest, strangest, smallest 90-minute extravaganzas ever seen on broadcast
television.

Key matches include:

WWE Champion John Cena and the 7-foot, 3-inch 420-pound titan The Great Khali
squaring off in a prelude to the highly anticipated rematch for the WWE Championship
at the “One Night Stand” pay-per-view on Sunday, June 3rd.

Batista and Chris Benoit battle World Heavyweight Champion Edge and United
States Champion MVP in anticipation of title match showdowns at “One Night
Stand.”

The WWE’s strangest and smallest going head-to-head in a match that can only
be seen to be believed

“Saturday Night’s Main Event” debuted on NBC in late night as a
replacement for “Saturday Night Live” repeats in 1985, and originally
ran through 1992. The groundbreaking program brought professional wrestling to
broadcast television for the first time and set off two decades of success on
broadcast and cable, including ratings titan “Monday Night RAW” on
USA Network. The televised wrestling rumbles also launched a galaxy of
multi-talented Superstars that crossed over from the ring to countless areas of
American entertainment, such as Hulk Hogan, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper,
Randy “Macho Man” Savage, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, The Honky
Tonk Man and King Kong Bundy.
