The Main Event: Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant

For tonight’s weekly retro wrestling offering, here is Hulk Hogan defending the WWF Championship against Andre the Giant from The Main Event on NBC, on Friday night February 5 1988.  This is still the most watched wrestling match of all-time, and features one of the most memorable angles of all-time as well.  If you’ve never seen it, I strongly urge you to stick around and watch the whole thing.  The ending is legendary.
