25th Anniversary Of WrestleMania 3– Scott Remembers [VIDEOS]
For all you WWE fanatics like me, this weekend is WrestleMania 28 live on Pay Per View from Sun Life Stadium In Miami, FL. The big Main Event is the one every one has been talking about for the past year now John Cena Vs. The Rock. I myself can’t wait, It’s going to be a great show and I have a party all planned at my apartment with a few of my close friends.
Speaking of WrestleMania, It came to my attention that today is the 25th Anniversary of the Biggest WrestleMania of all time! WrestleMania 3 happened on March 29th, 1987 at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan. It set the indoor attendance record at the time of 93, 173. I remember as an 11 year old kid really being psyched for this event. I unfortunately didn’t get to watch it live, but since the internet wasn’t around to spoil things I watched it on tape the following day. The Main Event was the biggest of it’s time as Hulk Hogan took on his former friend Andre the Giant. As a kid who didn’t know better, I didn’t know how Hogan could win this match!
Although this was the Main Event, another match stole the show and in my opinion still stands the test of time as being the greatest Wrestlemania match of all time. The Late, Great “Macho Man” Randy Savage Vs. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat for the Intercontinental Title. These guys told a story like only two legends could.
Realizing all this happened 25 years ago makes me feel a little bit old, but it also brings out alot of great memories. I remember watching that video tape over and over again and I think I still actually have it sitting around with all my others. I’m still a kid at heart and it will show this Sunday as well when I get together with my buddies for WrestleMania 28.
