Trivia

WWE claimed that Hogan slamming Andre here was the first time Andre had been slammed. However, Hogan had slammed Andre in their match at Shea Stadium on August 9, 1980, which is included on the Hulk Still Rules DVD. Butcher Vachon slammed Andre on September 1, 1972 at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL during a handicap match with Andre vs. Vachon and Larry Hennig. Shozo Kobayashi slammed Andre in 1971. Stan Hansen and Antonio Inoki both slammed Andre in separate matches in 1981. UWA (Mexico) Heavyweight Champion El Canek slammed Andre en route to defeating him in a Best-2-out-of-3-falls match at the El Toreo in Naulcalpan, Mexico on February 12, 1984. Bruiser Brody slammed Andre in Dallas in 1980. Kamala bodyslammed Andre once in the old Mid-South promotion. See more »

Quotes

Jesse Ventura: [after failing to bodyslam Andre the Giant, Andre falls onto Hulk Hogan and comes just a fraction of an inch from a three count. Jesse The Body isn't sure] Wait, was that two or was that three?
Gorilla Monsoon: Two count only!
Jesse Ventura: Oh! That was close!

29 April 2001 | by (South Yorks, England) – See all my reviews

These WERE the days for the WWF. It's 1987, the absolute height of Hulkamania and there's 93,000 VERY loud fans cheering and booing in all the right places. Perfect. Randy Savage vs Rick Steamboat is the finest 15 minutes of your life, it's a truly great match. Elsewhere, the matches aren't all great, but the sense of history and fun carry them all through. A real wrestling classic, up there with WrestleMania 10 as a 100% great event.
