You Actually Need a Review?
25 July 2002 | by MarkyIceSee all my reviews

What are you sitting here reading these reviews for? GET THE TAPE! WM3 was THE moment in WWF history that can never be forgotten. Andre/Hogan is still the biggest match of all time, despite sucking like very few matches could possibly do. Does it matter that the match is bad? No. It's still mark-out moment number 1 for all wrestling fans.

Steamboat/Savage, regarded as the greatest wrestling match of all time until Steamboat/Flair in 1989, is still unbelievable to this day. Intense psychology and crowd interaction make for the WWF's first 5-star PPV classic.

Sure the rest of the matches weren't very good, but who cares? It's Wrestlemania 3!

This was wrestling at its peak. Nothing has come close since. Hulkamania was at its best and it was the Golden Age of Sports Entertainment. See the show, relive the excitement, and understand exactly why Andre/Hogan is the biggest match - ever.
