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 »

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!
