During an interview with Mr. SantiZip, “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan recalled his legendary WrestleMania 3 match against Andre The Giant for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.

Here’s what Hogan said about the biggest victory of his career:

“That night he weighed 660. If you watched Andre’s career, sometimes they would say 500 pounds. He was never 500 pounds. He was always 550. That’s as light as he ever was.

Sometimes when he ate and he drank too much, you’d see his belly swell up like a balloon and everything else kind of swelled, so he got really heavy when his health wasn’t that great. He was coming off a huge back surgery.

So that night, actually in ’87, it was over 30 years ago, 33, 34, 35 years ago, I was a lot younger back then and I was actually training with heavy weights and I didn’t think I could slam him.

At WrestleMania 3, about 30 seconds into the match, I went to yoke him up and I got him chest high, that position you’re talking about, and I fell back. I almost lost the match in the first 30 seconds.

He got like a two and a half count, but as he got tired and I started feeling better, the longer the match goes, it’s almost like the more energy I would get from the people, you know, I would start shaking and go crazy, that I found the perfect spot where he was kind of off balance.

He was kind of floating towards me. I happened to get underneath him and when I got to that position again that you’re talking about, I just said, ‘The heck with it’. I turned him and he went down.

It was a one time deal brother, never, to happen again. I didn’t think I could do it, but when you’re in front of 94,000 Hulkamaniacs, you gotta do what you gotta do, brother.”
