10 Things You Probably Never Knew About WrestleMania III

The WWE will be having their biggest show of the year in just a few weeks, as WrestleMania 33 will be held in Orlando, Florida for the second time at the old Citrus Bowl, a place that they transformed for WrestleMania XXIV back in 2007.

This year the card is focused around Brock Lesnar and Goldberg, in a match that was booed out of the building when put on the first time at WrestleMania XX in New York back in 2004.

This time around both men seem a lot more focused, and the WWE Universal Title is on the line to boot.

The Undertaker vs Roman Reigns, a mixed tag featuring John Cena, Kevin Owens against Chris Jericho, HHH vs Seth Rollins and Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt are the other highlight matches on the card this year.

If you are a wrestling oldie, you may remember the same event 30 years ago this month, WrestleMania III, held in Michigan at the old Pontiac Silverdome, the site that housed the Detroit Lions until Ford Field opened in Downtown Detroit.

WrestleMania III was billed as ‘bigger, badder, better’ and by the size of the build and the crowd it most certainly was, as over 93,000 (announced) fans crammed into the dome for the mega event.

We all know and likely most remember the main event of Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant for the WWF Title, a match that was bigger than most could image, and for 12 plus minutes two of the biggest characters in the sports history did battle in a match that we will discuss a lot more in this list.

Today, we go back three decades to the third Mania, as we give you ’10 Things You Probably Never Knew About WrestleMania III.’
