A WWE record attendance of 93,173 raucous fans witnessed Hulk Hogan bodyslam Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan back in 1987.
Now, nearly 30 years since the feat, the Hulkster is tempted to make WrestleMania history again. Appearing live on ESPN's Sportscenter on Monday to help promote the Special Olympics, Hogan admitted to be currently entertaining the idea of wrestling one final match at WrestleMania 32 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on April 3, 2016.
His main intrigue behind the possibility? The home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium can accommodate up to 105,000 fans — maybe a little more, considering an NFL football field is much larger than the amp-and-ring setup that the WWE has. That creates the scenario of the WWE possibly breaking its record attendance for WrestleMania and Hogan being front and center 29 years later to do it.
Although Hogan — who will be 62 years old by the next WrestleMania — admitted that he'd need to be medically cleared before getting back into the ring, the moment would definitely be surreal.
Adding intrigue to the possible scenario would be who Hogan would be getting into the ring with to create history and possibly shatter the history books one more time. Brock Lesnar? The 24-inch pythons up against the most destructive force that the WWE has ever seen. Big Show? Hogan already slammed Andre the Giant in front of nearly 94,000 fans ... at the age of 62, can he slam Show? Roman Reigns? Hogan and Reigns' cousin, Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson already set off WrestleMania fireworks, so why not Roman? Rusev? The Real American vs. the Bulgarian brute. Just throwing names out there. As big as it'd be for Hogan, it'd be as big for the WWE superstar sharing the squared circle spotlight with him.
Let's see how this one unfolds, brother!
