I used to get a kick when Lanny would read a poem abouthis opponent and then his opponent would kick the crap out of him.  Grin


What's funny, though, is that despite being basically enhancement talent for most of his career, Lanny is better off financially than many guys who worked much bigger programs and made more money.
I think his biggest run was as "The Genious," and it sounds like most guys didn't want to work with him because they thought it would relegate them.

I don't know if Hennig was one of those people, but I always wondered why they paired those two.
Curt benefitted from having Heenan - as did anyone - but I don't think he needed any help getting over from guys like Lanny and The Coach.

Karl Gotch was VERY proud of the fact that he trained these two:

A few observations:

  • I've understood more and more over the years just how close Beefcake & Hogan were as friends.
  • LOL @ Gene claiming Ozzy's body was "shaking" at 1:29 in clip 2. I never caught that before.
  • Dynamite had a good build, but horrible ILS.
  • Ozzy had no lats at all.

I remember watching that Mania at my cousin's house.

From the memoirs of an 8 year-old:

Rick Martel & Tom Zenk opened the show against two Canadian guys who didn't have action figures.
The midgets all turned on Bundy in the mixed tag match.
Hacksaw Duggan & Iron Scheik set up an awesome feud that was sure to last until WM IV.
Steamboat's throat was all better, and he beat that asshole Savage.
The Predator trailor that indicated Jesse Ventura would be the next Arnold for sure.
Hulk (gasp) beat evil Andre, and at 8, I really thought several times he might not.
Who the fcuk is Bob Uecker?


As a kid, that's what I remembered from & thought of WrestleMania III.

lol. Ive watched that ppv countless times, and not to sound like a fanboy but there had to have been at least 90,000 people there. It's overwhelming. I can't imagine working in that atmosphere.

Yeah, they claimed 93,173, and from some of those shots, I believe it.
Supposedly, Joey Marella said to Hogan & Andre during the match something to the effect, "Can you believe this? This is incredible!"

I'm really surprised Vince ran that stadium again for - what was it - WM 23?
He had to have known he wouldn't sell the place out that year.
During the Attitude years, maybe/likely, but not when he did.

WrestleMania is SUPPOSED TO SELL OUT...period.

I remember a Jake Roberts interview where he said riding to the ring, Alice Cooper was gasping for air saying he's never been in an atmosphere like that. 23 was at Ford Field. According to Wiki the attendance was 80,103 which was a record for that place... It's wiki so take it for what it's worth.

Okay, I must have been mistaken.
I thought Vince booked another WM at the Silverdome, or whatever it's called now.

You and me both. It was the craziest crowd I have ever seen. Even Jesse was looking around and said to Gorilla, "Look at all these people". There will never be an era like the late eighties boom. No way Jose. Monty stated that WM is supposed to sell out, period. He's right, and WM3 was a HUGE sellout.

What  don't understand is why the hell did they have WM4 & 5 back to back in the same venue?

Nice match - I especially love the way Saturn sold for Chyna.
Check out the bump at 3:16; landing on a gym mat is a lot different than the center of a wrestling ring.
Eddie & Saturn had quite a few entertaining spots overall here:

I thought the Radicalz was a GREAT angle, and I looked so forward to where it would lead.
I became disappointed very fast.

You and me both. I thought that was a great faction. What an awesome score for WWE. Bringing in Saturn, Benoit, Guererro and Malenko from WCW. All phenomenal wrestlers in their own way.

Aside from having some of my favorite workers, this match stands out as being one of the BEST examples of why Tony Shiavonne sucks hairy sack as an announcer.
Listen to his commentary at 0:55

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR9SMTgprV4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR9SMTgprV4</a>

"You know whatís been great about this match, guys, is we have seen these two teams repeatedly try to win the match."

Really, Tony?
Really?
Iíve never seen a match in which anybody tried to WIN!
How unusual.
You don't see matches like that often.
