An iconic WrestleMania moment.
We are, of course, talking about Hulk HoganIs against Andre the Giant At WrestleMania III. And, in an exclusive chat with E! News, Hulk (born) Terry Bollea) Revealed how important that match was in wrestling history.
As WWE fans are well aware, the 1987 match is now considered an important moment for the wrestling industry. Why? Well, the then World Heavyweight Champion had a record-breaking performance of more than seven feet in front of the audience in this match. So, it is no surprise that the Hulk remembers the duel as if it were yesterday.
“You know, WrestleMania I turned out well, WrestleMania II turned out fine. None of us lost our home or our investment, even if we had the farm at stake to work on,” Hulk recalled to E! News. “But, when WrestleMania III came along, we had rented the building, the Silverdome, and they called us.”
According to Hulk, he was encouraged to cancel WrestleMania III as the date was sandwiched between two other high-profile events.
