King Kong Bundy & "Big" John Studd when Hogan hit Studd with the atomic leg drop.  After the match, Bundy and Studd cleared Hogan and Orndorff from the ring.  Andre "The Giant" came in and attacked both Bundy and Studd then cleared them from the ring.  Andre also knocked down multiple referees until a team of WWF officials as well as Hogan and Orndorff had to restrain him.  Interestingly, Andre did not attempt to attack Bobby Heenan.



  1. Andre "The Giant" was suspended for his conduct after the Main Event ended.  He would not be reinstated until shortly before the Royal Rumble.  Interestingly, Bobby Heenan did not object to Andre's reinstatement.

  2. In his last interview before being suspended, Andre was asked why didn't Hogan pick him as a partner for SummerSlam to which Andre replied, "Hogan did not ask me but that's okay because he can pick any partner he wants."

  3. Paul Orndorff eventually attacked Hulk Hogan after a tag team match.  Orndorff claimed that Hogan wanted all the spotlight during their SummerSlam match.

  4. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and "Adorable" Adrian Adonis continued to feud over which show was better - "Piper's Pit" or "The Flower Shop."
