Hogan slams Andre:
Hulk Hogan was already the biggest star in all of pro wrestling but if there was someone who could give him a run for his money, it was Andre the Giant, who was popular the world over. The two put together an amazing feud that culminated at WrestleMania 3 in front of just under 80,000 fans (WWE would tell you over 93,000). The match itself wasn't very good but it didn't need to be. It was all building to the big moment when Hogan would body slam Andre before pinning him to retain his WWF title.
In the latter stages of Mick Foley's career he used the value of his name to periodically put over several wrestlers who were on the rise and ready to break into the main event as major players. He often did so by performing outrageous stunts and laying his body on the line during matches against whomever he was putting over at the time. In this instance, he allowed Edge to spear him through a flaming table at WrestleMania 22.
