I know, I know.... it's impossible for a show that took place in 1987 to get booked nearly 30 years later. Yet, it brings up a interesting question: would one of wrestling's most iconic supercards turn out differently if mapped out during the age of fan activism?
You've seen WrestleMania III before, right? Of course you have. The irrestistable force meets the immovable object? Savage-Steamboat? Those little ring-shaped carts that transported people back and forth to the ring?
Great - now toss it aside for a minute as we play 1987 armchair booker and re-do the iconic pay-per-view.
Let's begin with the main event. Yes, the "first" meeting of Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant was certainly a huge draw, and no one will ever forget the iconic image of the two former friends staring each other down in center ring.
But in 2015? Fans would be booing Hogan like crazy, knowing that he's really just Vince McMahon's manufactured choice to lead the company. They want someone who's more talented to fight for the championship - a technical wrestling marvel who can fly in the air when the situation calls for it and shows real fire in the ring. But of course, because he's a darling of the fans, he gets all but overlooked.
So the fans harp on the issue, writing in letters to Pro Wrestling Illustrated in disgust, and criticize Mean Gene Okerlund whenever he attempts to promote the main event each week from the WWF control center.
Finally, the company brass takes the hint. President Jack Tunney makes a huge announcement on Superstars of Wrestling. While Hogan and Andre are certainly still in the main event, another competitor will be added to make this a Triple Threat Match!
