WrestleMania Moments: Hulk Hogan slams Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III

  |   WWE

we look back through 32 years of iconic WrestleMania moments, there's little doubt as to the singular moment in wrestling history -- the one that stands above all others in the memories of wrestling fans. It was 30 years ago Tuesday that the irresistible force met the immovable object. The moment that Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant to the mat at WrestleMania III continues to stand the test of time, even three decades later.

On March 29, 1987, more than 93,000 screaming fans at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan watched as Hogan slowly approached Andre in the middle of the ring to start the match -- a goose bump-inducing moment in and of itself.
