Throwback Thursday | Wrestlemania III | The Body Slam

Hey Nation!

Today we celebrate the anniversary of the most famous wrestling event of all time: Wrestlemania III!

March 29, 2017 is etched in the memory of every hardcore wrestling fan. Watched by millions around the world, Wrestlemania III broke the record for pay-per-view revenues. Several more millions would watch it later on VHS and Betamax(Remember Betamax, Nation?).

Wrestlemania III: Hogan vs. The Giant

12 matches culminating with the most influential match of all-time and the scoop slam heard ’round the world: Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant!

I was one of the fans who would later watch Wrestlemania III on video and even though I already knew the results, the anticipation I felt as we put the tape in the VCR was palpable.

I can’t imagine how Pulp Nation writer Mark Perry (check out his interview with the lovely Amanda Wyss) must have felt as he took his seat at the Pontiac Silverdome to watch it live!


Tell Bradley he’s a genius or inept here.

By the way, today’s also the anniversary (March 29, 1966) of the Broadway musical It’s a bird…It’s a Plane…It’s Superman!
