Stan Hansen and Antonio Inoki both slammed André in separate matches in 1981. UWA (Mexico) Heavyweight Champion El Canek slammed André 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.

Bigger! Badder! Better!
7 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is no doubt the biggest Wrestlemania of them all! 93,172 fans jam packed the Pontiac Silverdome and had the pleasure of seeing Hulk Hogan body slam Andre the Giant!! Man if I would of saw that live, I would have went right through the roof of the Silverdome. Every time I drive past that arena I don't think about how the Lions used to play there, I think about Wrestlemania III!!

Savage vs Steamboat was a great match as everybody knows. Steamboats reign didn't last too long though, as he would eventually lose the belt to the future Greatest Intercontinental Champion of All Time!, The Honky Tonk Man.

A must see for all wrestling fans.
