274. King Kong Bundy (w/ Jimmy Hart) vs. Special Delivery Jones

March 31, 1985
Madison Square Garden
New York City, NY

Ah yes, the infamous WrestleMania I squash match.

They claimed it was 9 seconds, but really, from bell to bell, it took 24 for Bundy to catch the sprinting Jones, run him in to the turnbuckle, give him an avalanche, then deliver a splash for a three count.

The purpose was to essentially showcase Bundy as a monster as he would be headlining the next year’s main event against World Champion Hulk Hogan. In that way, it does its job, but little more.
