Vince McMahon: Heavyweight champion of the world in the locker room just one hour away from his moment of destiny.
Hulk Hogan: Well you know they said it was my last ride man! Yesterday when I finished hanging and banging. When I jumped on the Harley man. As I went thru the intersection. As I headed for the mountains, some of the nonbelievers in the gym said "See ya later Hulkster man! This is your last ride." Tate me alive brothers. When I felt the fury. As I ripped. As I tore this shirt As I headed for the sunset man. ...

MEGA CARD
26 April 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

To this day I don't think WrestleMania III has been topped. Everything about this card was brilliant. I don't think fans will ever see a card like this. It took place 15 years ago and it is still talked about today.

For starters, the crowd were just amazing. The electricity and energy coming from them was phenomenal. The way they cheered during the Hulk Hogan/Andre the Giant match was brilliant. Before Hogan and Andre had even touched each other the fans were screaming-I am surprised they didn't break all the glass with their screaming!

The matches were just superb. Roddy Piper battled the late Adrian Adonis in an entertaining match. The mysterious and charismatic Jake Roberts-and his python-battled Elvis lookalike The Honky Tonk Man. Ricky Steamboat battled Macho Man in a match still held in high regard today by wrestling experts. And who can forget Hulk Hogan battling the late great Andre the Giant!

The event can be summed up in one word-MEGA! These characters were larger than life. If you were to put the stars of this event in a time machine and put them against today's stars then they would destroy them.

This really was a timeless event which will still be talked about fifty years from now.
