Wrestlemania 3 and Hogan vs. Andre the Giant


On March 29,1987 a world record indoor attendance of 90,873 people packed into Detroit's Pontiac Silverdome. They, and countless thousands glued to their televisions had come to see the final act of a classic tale of envy, deceit and blind ambition. The epic struggle between good and evil, the story book blonde haired hero and the hideous monster. The chance to achieve victory over seemingly insurmountable odds. The event was Wrestlemania 3 and the match Hulk Hogan Vs Andre the Giant. PAGE 2 Fans around the world come every Monday to watch their favorite wrestlers step into the ring, trying to win over their opponents with brut force. After punch, kick and body slam the wrestler wrenches in pain then rises to action. He returning to his opponent with a clothesline, then grabs a chair, and slams it into his opponent's head. They wrestle, only to come up with no blood or even a black and blue. People stare and wonder, are it real; did he really get hit with a chair. For wrestling fan, Chris Mortensen: The show is a fascinating look into how the sport -- and at one time it was a Sport -- evolved into the combination Super Bowl-Vegas show it is today with its spectacles, parody, profanity, and comic crowning and uncrowning. Indeed there would be few forms of modern entertainment whose roots can be traced back so clearly to the tradition of the carnival as pro-wrestling. "Modern pro-wrestling is all about spectacle, from the elaborate ring entrances of the sports biggest names, the grandiose excesses of their costumes and the stylized battle in the ring, pro-wrestling thrives on spectacle." And in pro-wrestling, there is no bigger spectacle than Wrestlemania. "I do believe that wrestling is fake, but much doubt is left in my mind." The show or match is filled pain-staking moves. "I don't know how they fake some of the stunts they pull off in the ring; people getting hit with steel chairs or getting smashed through a table." PAGE 3 This industry was brought up real, by carnivals and sideshows. The strong men would challenge people, if those people won, they got cash reward. Now these athletes are former football player, weight lifters, and people from anywhere with a desire to get into the ring. Chris, like many people think wrestling is not real, but the doubt is there in his head.

Wrestlemania III Essay

- Wrestlemania III is simply put one of the greatest Wrestlemania's of all time, if not for 17 and 19, I would rank this as the all time best.

But the real classic on this show, is Steamboat Vs Savage, you will rarely see any better. Gorilla and Jesse Ventura are the perfect announcing tandem, and the crowd is huge and LOUD!....   [tags: Film Review]

But I also enjoyed the storyline with HBK and Jericho, and Vince and Hogan. It's a nearly flawless Wrestlemania, with only The Undertaker deserving of a better match up....   [tags: Film Review]
