  • Trivia

    • While the amount of fans has been announced as 93,173, some controversy states that the attendance was more in the 78,000 range. However, this has never been officially proven.

    • I found one big goof on Wrestlemania III, at the ppv everyone acted like the Hogan VS Andre match was the first time they fought (Televised), when many years eariler back when Vince Sr. own the WWWF Hulk and Andre fought two times on August 9, 1980, and September 22, 1980 and Andre won both times. I thought I should just point that out.

    • Aretha Franklin sang a rendition of "America the Beautiful.

    • The match between "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat for the prestige WWF Intercontilnetal Championship has been deemed by many fans as one of the greatest matches in WWF history.

      On a side note, this match was the reason Chris Jericho wanted to become a wrestler.
