Trivia

The WWE has always listed the attendance for this show as 93,173, thereby making it the indoor attendance record for any sporting event in United States history. This figure is inflated, as the actual attendance for the show is somewhere around 78,000 (still a very high figure, and still the attendance record for the Pontiac Silverdome, host of this show). People who work for the Silverdome and worked at the show that day can confirm this, stating that the building literally can't house any more people than about 78,000, thus making the figure that the WWE has stated impossible.

Gene Okerlund: [at the press conference, Andre the giant is sitting down] Andre, may I speak to you?
[Andre doesn't do anything]
Bobby Heenan: Well, I guess the man doesn't wanna talk to you, now go ahead slap him around, see if you can get him to talk to you!

the big one!
1 July 2000 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Perhaps the biggest one on one match of all time, the immortal 6"8 303 pound 5-time WWF Champion Hulk Hogan took on the 7"4 520 pound Andre the Giant in front of an audience of over 93,000 in the Pontiac Silverdome in 1987 an indoor attendence record that broke the Rolling Stones old record. This was a collosal match up with many other great matches, the WWF is truly the greatest entertainment ever!
