  • 0:00 - 0:03
    SPEAKER: And never, number one,
    asked for a title match
  • 0:03 - 0:06
    and number two,
    never wanted a title match.
  • 0:06 - 0:09
    SPEAKER: He can tell you he wanted it
    Walter your knowledge is wrong
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    because right he's got one
    and he definitely asked for it.
  • 0:12 - 0:15
    He ripped the shirt off the champion
    as well as the crucifix.
  • 0:15 - 0:17
    I figure that's a direct way
    of asking for it.
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    SPEAKER: Yeah, it certainly is
    but all that came
  • 0:19 - 0:22
    with the provocation
    of that guy right there

    with the white waiter's jacket on,

    Hulk Hogan!
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 1:08 - 1:12
    SPEAKER: The roof of the Silverdome
    about to explode here
  • 1:12 - 1:18
    as the Hulkstar greets at least
    93,00 fans greet him.
  • 1:18 - 1:20
    You're looking at him.
  • 1:20 - 1:23
    The greatest professional athlete
    in the world today
  • 1:23 - 1:25
    the world's heavyweight champion.
  • 1:25 - 1:28

    SPEAKER: A phenomenal individual
    and Hulkamania, look at him Jess.
  • 1:52 - 1:54
    It's a lights and running well.

    SPEAKER: You got 93,173 fans standing on
    their feet for this one Gorilla,

    and I hope my voice holds up.
  • 2:02 - 2:06
    SPEAKER: It's holding up just fine Jess.
  • 2:06 - 2:11
    And look at the Hulkstar.
    What an unbelievable individual he is.
  • 2:11 - 2:15
    And what a representative as the
    world's heavyweight champion.
  • 2:15 - 2:20
    SPEAKER: This is the biggest match in
    the history of professional wrestling.
  • 2:20 - 2:27
    SPEAKER: No question.
    This is the final time chest
  • 2:27 - 2:32
    win, lose or draw for the Hulkstar
    to wear that particular belt into the ring.
  • 2:32 - 2:35
    SPEAKER: And what pressure
    on referee Joey Marella
  • 2:35 - 2:38
    refereeing the biggest match in history
    right here.
  • 2:38 - 2:42
    SPEAKER: Look at the stare
    of the champion against the challenger.
  • 2:42 - 2:46
    The irresistible force
    reading the immovable object.
  • 2:46 - 2:50
    SPEAKER: Look at the size of The Giant.
    I mean Hogan is 6 foot 8".
  • 2:50 - 2:53
    SPEAKER: Andre is 7 foot 5".
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 2:53 - 2:58
    The bell is gone,
    this one is officially underway.
  • 2:58 - 3:02
    Look at the look of disdain
    on the face of Andre.
  • 3:02 - 3:04
    SPEAKER: What's Hogan saying
    to him I wonder?
  • 3:04 - 3:07
    What could Hogan possibly
    be saying to him?
  • 3:07 - 3:09
    SPEAKER: I'd certainly like to be able
    to read lips at this point.
  • 3:09 - 3:11
    SPEAKER: He's on though,
    he's hulking up right now.
  • 3:11 - 3:15
    SPEAKER: Shoved by Andre
    and the champion retaliates.
  • 3:15 - 3:19
    Oh, big right hand blocked
    by the champion (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 3:19 - 3:22
    and the Hulkstar unloading, body slam!
    Oh,he almost got him up.
  • 3:22 - 3:26
    Oh, he collapsed, one two!
  • 3:26 - 3:28
    Two count only.
  • 3:28 - 3:30
    SPEAKER: Was that two or was that three?
  • 3:30 - 3:31
    SPEAKER: Two count only.
  • 3:31 - 3:33
    SPEAKER: Oh that was close Gorilla!
  • 3:33 - 3:34
    SPEAKER: Shoulder was up.
  • 3:34 - 3:36
    SPEAKER: Oh, was that close,
    Andre thinks he won
  • 3:36 - 3:38
    and just like that, Hogan is hurt.
  • 3:38 - 3:40
    Hogan went for a body slam
    earlier in the bout
  • 3:40 - 3:43
    and he may have injured his back.
  • 3:43 - 3:45
    SPEAKER: The man hurt
    that lower back area for sure
  • 3:45 - 3:48
    with that extreme weight
    of Andre the giant.
  • 3:48 - 3:51
    Referee showing the timekeeper
    that it was a two count
  • 3:51 - 3:53
    and his shoulder came up.
  • 3:53 - 3:57
    SPEAKER: Well that was very very close,
    Hogan may be injured.
  • 3:57 - 3:57
    (LOUD THUD)
  • 3:57 - 4:02
    Oh Andre is going to work on the back.
    He definitely is, Hogan's back is hurt.
  • 4:02 - 4:05
    That's a bad sign for the champion
    this early in the bout.
  • 4:05 - 4:07
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 4:07 - 4:11
    SPEAKER: Referee riding down and
    questioning the champion.
  • 4:11 - 4:18
    And Andre just patiently grinding away
    with those awesome forearm shots
  • 4:18 - 4:19
    into the kidney area of the champion.
  • 4:19 - 4:23
    SPEAKER: You know, I gotta say Andre's
    making it look easy right now Gorilla.
  • 4:23 - 4:25
    SPEAKER: He certainly is Jess.
  • 4:25 - 4:27
    SPEAKER; You know, the champion may have
    signed himself out.
  • 4:27 - 4:31
    He may have gotten so hyped for this match
    and he's blown himself out
  • 4:31 - 4:33
    before it even happens.
  • 4:33 - 4:36
    SPEAKER: That adrenaline has got
    to be flowing through the body
  • 4:36 - 4:39
    of the world's heavyweight champ.
    Oh, a knee lift by Andre
  • 4:39 - 4:43
    and the Hulk's in serious
    serious trouble.
  • 4:43 - 4:46
    SPEAKER: And the big man keeps him down,
    and the man, it's trouble alright.
  • 4:46 - 4:49
    SPEAKER: Oh slam.
    Andre picked him up with ease.
  • 4:49 - 4:50
    (BODY SLAMS, HULK GROANS)
  • 4:50 - 4:55
    And puts him right in
    that lower lumbar region,
  • 4:55 - 4:57
    that kidney area that's
    already been damaged.
  • 4:57 - 5:01
    SPEAKER: He almost broke Hogan right
    through the back of it Andre.
  • 5:01 - 5:04
    Andre telling the champion get up.
    Get up!
  • 5:04 - 5:08
    SPEAKER: There is almost literally a hush
    here in the Silverdome Jess.
  • 5:08 - 5:14
    SPEAKER: You know it's almost seemed
    at this point the bout, it's a mismatch.
  • 5:14 - 5:16
    SPEAKER: Hulkstar trying to make it
    to his feet,
  • 5:16 - 5:20
    Andre gets him up
    and puts him in another slam.
  • 5:21 - 5:24
    How many times can the champion take that?
  • 5:24 - 5:26
    SPEAKER: The big giant's working him.
    Wow, look at this!
  • 5:26 - 5:28
    (HULK GROANS)
  • 5:28 - 5:31
    SPEAKER: Walking right over the back
    of the champ.
  • 5:31 - 5:33
    SPEAKER: You know, The Brain's gotta be
    feeling good right now,
  • 5:33 - 5:37
    Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan,
    he's gotta be feeling good.
  • 5:37 - 5:40
    SPEAKER: Anxiety running through
    his veins as well as he is...
  • 5:40 - 5:43
    What a golden opportunity
    for him to walk out of here
  • 5:43 - 5:45
    the manager of the new world's
    heavyweight champion.
  • 5:45 - 5:49
    SPEAKER: You know I've never seen Hogan
    beaten down like this.
  • 5:49 - 5:53
    I've never seen Hogan crawling on the mat
    it's obvious he's hurt his back
  • 5:53 - 5:57
    attempting to go for that big body slam
    earlier in the bout.
  • 5:57 - 6:03
    SPEAKER: Andre picks him up literally
    by the tights,
  • 6:03 - 6:08
    rips him into the side.
    Further damage done.
  • 6:08 - 6:12
    And Andre's just taking his time,
    Andre seems to have no fear at all
  • 6:12 - 6:15
    for Hogan's strength.
  • 6:15 - 6:20
    SPEAKER: None whatsoever but a lot of guys
    have made that mistake as well Jess.
  • 6:20 - 6:25
    Hard again once into the turnbuckles.
    (CROWD SHOUTS)
  • 6:25 - 6:29
    And the referee right over there
    taking a good look at the champ
  • 6:29 - 6:32
    as we look over the shoulder of
    Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan.
  • 6:32 - 6:37
    SPEAKER: I heard on Andre yell
    what do you think of your champion now?
  • 6:37 - 6:38
    (GRUNTS)
  • 6:38 - 6:41
    SPEAKER: Andre with a shoulder block
    into the stamina,
  • 6:41 - 6:46
    you can hear Bobby 'The Brain'
    screaming again, again!
  • 6:46 - 6:48
    SPEAKER: And I'll tell you,
    Hogan started off quick
  • 6:48 - 6:52
    but has had virtually no offence
    since going for that big body slam
  • 6:52 - 6:55
    at the start.
  • 6:55 - 6:56
    (GRUNTS)
  • 6:56 - 6:59
    SPEAKER: Oh, champ's gotta get
    out of that corner,
  • 6:59 - 7:02
    he is getting crushed in there.
  • 7:02 - 7:03
    SPEAKER: Gorilla...
  • 7:03 - 7:07
    SPEAKER: Oh, The Brain just screamed
    headbutt him, and Andre delivers.
  • 7:07 - 7:10
    SPEAKER: If Hogan doesn't get out
    of this predicament right now
  • 7:10 - 7:13
    we're gonna see a new champion Gorilla.
  • 7:13 - 7:15
    SPEAKER: You got that right.
  • 7:15 - 7:19
    SPEAKER: How much punishment
    can the champion Hogan take?
  • 7:19 - 7:22
    SPEAKER: A whole lot Jess, I've seen him
    do it on a number of occasions.
  • 7:22 - 7:25
    SPEAKER: But never from a guy 525 pounds.
  • 7:25 - 7:27
    SPEAKER: Absolutely not.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 7:27 - 7:29
    Oh the Hulkstar sneaked out
    under the back door.
  • 7:29 - 7:31
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 7:31 - 7:36
    He's out of the corner
    and it's the Hulk with a right hand
  • 7:36 - 7:40
    and another one,
    walk the ropes, a big roundhouse right!
  • 7:41 - 7:42
    He's got the giant stunned!
  • 7:42 - 7:45
    SPEAKER: He's got him stunned,
    can he keep him? Big elbow.
  • 7:45 - 7:49
    SPEAKER: An elbow,
    and Andre is just teetering.
  • 7:49 - 7:51
    (LOUD SMACK)
  • 7:51 - 7:53
    SPEAKER: Hogan's giving it everything
    he's got right here,
  • 7:53 - 7:56
    he's got the giant reeled into the corner.
  • 7:56 - 8:00
    SPEAKER: It's the champion with the
    upper hand right now and he rams Andre.
  • 8:00 - 8:03
    Once, twice, three times, four times!
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 8:03 - 8:09
    Hitting that top turnbuckle
    time after time (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY).
  • 8:09 - 8:15
    Andre dazed,
    the eyes were looking very strange there.
  • 8:15 - 8:17
    As the Hulk comes after (CROWD GROANS)
  • 8:17 - 8:21
    Ran right into that size 22.
  • 8:21 - 8:23
    SPEAKER: Andre with a tremendous
    desperation move
  • 8:23 - 8:26
    caught the champion coming in
    flush on the jaw
  • 8:26 - 8:30
    with that size 22/24 boot,
    and Hogan's back on the mat
  • 8:30 - 8:32
    and back in trouble again.
  • 8:32 - 8:34
    SPEAKER: He is grinning like a giant,
    are you alright?
  • 8:34 - 8:39
    And he looked down and nodded affirmatively.
  • 8:39 - 8:40
    (LOUD SMACK, HULK GROANS)
  • 8:40 - 8:45
    Wow! What a chop by Andre.
  • 8:45 - 8:46
    Oh, the bear hug!
  • 8:46 - 8:49
    SPEAKER: He could get a submission
    on this.
  • 8:49 - 8:51
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 8:51 - 8:58
    SPEAKER: I will be the Hulk's surprise guy
    in all these 93,000 plus,
  • 8:58 - 9:00
    if the Hulkstar submits to this.
  • 9:00 - 9:02
    SPEAKER: Well he may not have
    no choice Gorilla.
  • 9:02 - 9:06
    He has never been put in a hold
    in a bear hug like this
  • 9:06 - 9:09
    by a man with the size
    and the strength of Andre.
  • 9:09 - 9:12
    SPEAKER: This guy has guts personified.
  • 9:12 - 9:15
    SPEAKER: I'm not denying that,
    I'm not denying that for a minute.
  • 9:15 - 9:17
    He's a tremendous champion
    but he's facing a man
  • 9:17 - 9:20
    who has never been beaten in 15 years.
  • 9:20 - 9:22
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 9:22 - 9:25
    SPEAKER: The record of the reigning
    world's heavyweight champion
  • 9:25 - 9:28
    is not a shabby one either Jess.
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 9:28 - 9:30
    SPEAKER: Heenan's yelling out,
    ring the bell, ring the bell.
  • 9:30 - 9:33
    You can hear Bobby Heenan
    yelling to referee Joey Marella
  • 9:33 - 9:35
    it's over, ring the bell.
  • 9:35 - 9:38
    SPEAKER: Referee right there,
    checking every side.
  • 9:38 - 9:41
    Checking to see if the Hulkstar
    indeed wants to quit.
  • 9:41 - 9:44
    Highly unlikely in my book.
  • 9:44 - 9:49
    But going from side to side as the hulk
    tries to ram that right hand,
  • 9:49 - 9:50
    he was unsuccessful Jess.
  • 9:50 - 9:53
    SPEAKER: Yeah, I'm telling you,
    Gorilla what's happening here,
  • 9:53 - 9:57
    Andre is putting the squeeze on
    He's taking the air away from Hogan.
  • 9:57 - 10:00
    Hogan is not being allowed
    to get a full breath of oxygen in there,
  • 10:00 - 10:03
    and that's subsequently gonna
    make him light headed,
  • 10:03 - 10:06
    and it's gonna make the knees shake
    and it could set him up.
  • 10:06 - 10:10
    SPEAKER: Well eventually he'll put him
    away with it if possible,
  • 10:10 - 10:15
    he'll just squeeze all the air out of him
    and not allow any air to get in.
  • 10:15 - 10:18
    And the fans watching him try
    to bring in that oxygen.
  • 10:18 - 10:22
    SPEAKER; You can see Hogan's appealing
    to the 93,000 Hulkamanians
  • 10:22 - 10:24
    here in the Silverdome.
  • 10:24 - 10:27
    SPEAKER: Give you that little bit
    of extra something that you need,
  • 10:27 - 10:29
    to get that adrenaline flowing once more
  • 10:29 - 10:33
    to combat the likes
    of Andre the Giant.
  • 10:33 - 10:36
    SPEAKER: Andre holding tough
    with him though,
  • 10:36 - 10:39
    Andre's, you know,
    he's got him ready for this bumping.
  • 10:39 - 10:43
    'Cause Andre has rushed nothing,
    Hogan's arm is going down.
  • 10:43 - 10:46
    This could be history right here
    Gorilla Monsoon.
  • 10:46 - 10:52
    SPEAKER: The Hulkstar
    just withering away here.
  • 10:52 - 10:54
    Referee checking the arm,
    wow, look at that.
  • 10:54 - 10:57
    SPEAKER: One more time and it's over.
    One more time if that arm drops
  • 10:57 - 10:59
    and it's over.
  • 10:59 - 11:02
    SPEAKER: Dropped again.
    It's gotta be three times I believe Jess.
  • 11:02 - 11:05
    Wow, look at that!
    It's up now. (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 11:05 - 11:10
    Listen to these fans.
    (CHEERING CONTINUES)
  • 11:10 - 11:12
    SPEAKER: He's still got it,
    where'd the hold go?
  • 11:12 - 11:16
    SPEAKER: He's still the champion.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 11:16 - 11:20
    Hulk fighting with every ounce
    of courage in him.
  • 11:20 - 11:23
    Right on the side of the ear
    with a right.
  • 11:23 - 11:26
    And another one,
    still hasn't broken the hold.
  • 11:26 - 11:29
    The third one did, and another one,
    and another one.
  • 11:29 - 11:30
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 11:30 - 11:33
    And the champion unloading
    with everything he's got.
  • 11:33 - 11:37
    SPEAKER: He's still in,
    he finally broke the hold.
  • 11:37 - 11:40
    SPEAKER: Andre being stunned now.
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 11:40 - 11:46
    The champion hurting his hand but
    he's hurting the giant as well.
  • 11:46 - 11:50
    It's the champion on the ropes.
  • 11:52 - 11:57
    Coming off once again,
    driving Andre back a few steps.
  • 11:57 - 12:01
    SPEAKER: Unbelievable Monsoon,
    I can't believe it.
  • 12:01 - 12:05
    SPEAKER: Ram's hard into the champ.
    (CROWD CHEERS)
  • 12:05 - 12:08
    SPEAKER: Hogan is down, Andre needs
    to do something here to finish him off.
  • 12:08 - 12:12
    SPEAKER: Andre is shaking his head
    and trying to clear the cobwebs.
  • 12:12 - 12:16
    Picks up the champion (INAUDIBLE)
    downed him with that boot
  • 12:16 - 12:20
    and the Hulkstar's out.
    Out onto the floor.
  • 12:20 - 12:22
    SPEAKER: Don't let this match
    end in a countdown.
  • 12:22 - 12:27
    SPEAKER: Andre going right out after him.
  • 12:27 - 12:31
    Andre the Giant continuing to administer
    the punishment.
  • 12:31 - 12:35
    What a job.
    Referee is counting both men.
  • 12:35 - 12:38
    SPEAKER: Oh! Andre headbutted the post.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 12:38 - 12:42
    SPEAKER: He sure did.
    The champion dropped right out of the way.
  • 12:42 - 12:46
    Look at the Hulk crawling
    around the side
  • 12:46 - 12:50
    trying to figure out where he's at.
  • 12:50 - 12:53
    SPEAKER; What do you think he's doing?
  • 12:53 - 12:56
    SPEAKER: He's rolling back
    that canvas area
  • 12:56 - 12:56
    SPEAKER: For what?
  • 12:56 - 13:02
    SPEAKER: To expose that concrete.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 13:03 - 13:08
    The world's champion Hulk Hogan,
    oh look at this!
  • 13:08 - 13:10
    He's going for a palm driver Jess.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 13:10 - 13:13
    SPEAKER: He can't possibly get it.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 13:13 - 13:19
    SPEAKER: Andre turned it over.
    Hulkstar made a big mistake there.
  • 13:20 - 13:23
    SPEAKER: I'll tell you what that there,
    I don't know what Hogan
  • 13:23 - 13:26
    was thinking up there,
    but that was horrible sportsmanship
  • 13:26 - 13:27
    on his part.
  • 13:27 - 13:30
    Pull him back in, and Andre's firing
    him back into the ring.
  • 13:30 - 13:32
    SPEAKER: The champion being
    thrown back in
  • 13:32 - 13:35
    and Andre underneath
    the bottom rope as well.
  • 13:35 - 13:36
    (CROSSTALK)
  • 13:36 - 13:38
    SPEAKER: At least we won't get
    a countdown
  • 13:38 - 13:40
    we don't wanna see any countdown
    I wanna see a winner.
  • 13:40 - 13:44
    SPEAKER: Absolutely.
    Andre now with an Irish weapon.
  • 13:44 - 13:46
    SPEAKER: He misses the foot.
  • 13:46 - 13:48
    SPEAKER: And the Hulk's stepped
    underneath that!
  • 13:48 - 13:49
    (LOUD THUD)
  • 13:49 - 13:53
    SPEAKER; Oh! He dropped the big guy!
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 13:53 - 13:56
    Look at Heenan, he's been out of shape.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 13:56 - 13:58
    SPEAKER: That's the first time I think
    that the Giant's
  • 13:58 - 14:00
    ever been knocked off his feet one time.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)
  • 14:00 - 14:03

    He's hulking up Jess.
  • 14:08 - 14:11
    SPEAKER: I don't know if he's got
    enough left in him.
  • 14:11 - 14:14
    SPEAKER: Well adrenaline can do wonders!
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)

    We're seeing what this guy
    is really made of, what he is.

    I don't believe it.
  • 14:26 - 14:27
    I don't believe it.
  • 14:27 - 14:30
    SPEAKER: Hulk drops in a big leg.
    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)

    (CROWD CHEERS WILDLY)

    I'm the man who tells it like it is,
    I'll give credit where credit's due.

    Andre the Giant

    had ever defeated.
    ('REAL AMERICAN' BY HULK HOGAN PLAYS)
  • 16:04 - 16:06
    SPEAKER: Never been slammed
    for that matter Jess.
  • 16:06 - 16:12
    SPEAKER: Wow. I mean that's 525 pounds
    and that's not dead barbell weight.
  • 16:12 - 16:18
    That's 525 pounds of living flesh
    that he picked up and slammed.
  • 16:18 - 16:21
    SPEAKER: There go the losers,
    look at Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan.

    SPEAKER: Look at The Brain.
    The Brain thought he had it Gorilla

    what they wanted, the win,
  • 16:55 - 17:01
    this is just his egomaniac self
    out there now.

    SPEAKER: When you can do
    what he's done right here,
  • 17:04 - 17:08
    in this record breaking event,
    you can do anything you wanted.
  • 17:08 - 17:09
    SPEAKER: Well, you know what Monsoon?

    I may have to come out of retirement
    to win this title.

  • 17:42 - 17:45
    SPEAKER: Greatest wrestling event
    of all time.
  • 17:45 - 17:50
    Wrestlemania 3 here in the Silverdome
    and the Hulkstar once again,
  • 17:50 - 17:55
    thanking, as he usually does,
    the man upstairs.

    will have to be against Bob Uecker.
  • 17:59 - 18:03

    They're all on their feet Jess.

    SPEAKER: I'll tell you Gorilla,
    there were 93,173 here

    80,000 of them here.

    Down on one knee,
    thanking the guy up there
  • 18:27 - 18:33
    who makes it all possible
    and he fulfills that dream
  • 18:33 - 18:36
    by keeping it all together.
  • 18:37 - 18:41
    This has been a happening Jess.
    ('REAL AMERICAN' BY HULK HOGAN PLAYS)
  • 18:41 - 18:43
    History is made here in the
    Silverdome, Pontiac, Michigan,

    and that guy right there,
    has made history all over the world.

    SPEAKER: Well I gotta tell it like it is,
    I didn't think it could be done Gorilla,
  • 18:52 - 18:54
    but he did it.
  • 18:54 - 18:58
    SPEAKER: Proving a lot of skeptics wrong,
    world's heavyweight champion,
  • 18:58 - 19:02
    Hulk Hogan put an end
    to the undefeated streak.
  • 19:02 - 19:06
    The 15 year reign of Andre the Giant
    as undefeated,
  • 19:06 - 19:08
    he'll never be able to say that again.
  • 19:08 - 19:10
    SPEAKER: That' s right.
  • 19:10 - 19:15
    ROB: Being from Michigan I was
    fortunate enough to land a 24th row ticket
  • 19:15 - 19:18
    and when you're seeing the unimaginable
  • 19:18 - 19:22
    when Hulk Hogan picked up
    Andre the giant and body slammed him.
  • 19:22 - 19:27
    93,000 people screaming their heads off
    and I was one of them.
  • 19:27 - 19:30
    That was definitely a memory.
