Classic World Wrestling Federation Promotional Shots [1990-1992]
Enjoy the gallery of absolute, one-hundred percent, bonafied legend of professional wrestling. Seeings these photos just makes me wonder who we’ll see as legends from this generation…
Came across this photo of Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant hanging out in Japan and cannot help but wonder what a random non-wrestling knowing Japanese person would think about this sight.
Andre the Giant Fights Off Black Gordman - WWF TV [3/22/1974]
Shortly after this photo was taken, Andre ate the child.
World Wrestling Federation Superstars Spoof - MAD Magazine #285 [March 1989]
I’ve always seen this cover floating around the Internet and always wondered what kind of feature the magazine ran. After some searching through some Austin comic book shops, I finally came across a copy of it (for only $2.50!!), and scanned the feature in. If only I could come across the WWF vs WCW Cracked Magazine that I used to own…

Ric Flair vs Andre the Giant - Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling [10/14/1977?]
Proof that these two legends actually faced each other inside a wrestling ring. In fact, “The Nature Boy” and Andre wrestled several times against each other in their careers, but it was usually in tag-team competition. The only other time I can find the wrestling icons one-on-one was in Orlando, Florida on 2/13/1983.
Andre the Giant Crushes Hulk Hogan - WWF WrestleMania III [3/29/1987]
Classic match between two legends.
Hulk Hogan’s Wedding Day [12/18/1983]
Andre the Giant and Antonio Inoki were front-and-center for the Hulkster’s wedding, but one can only imagine who else was in attendance. When it comes to moments I’d like to visit in a time machine, I think I can mark this date down as something I’d like to do*.

Andre the Giant getting Double Dropkicked by Toshiaki Kawada and Mitsuharu Misawa - AJPW Real World Tag League [2/12/1991]
A great shot of The Giant getting hit by the feet of two very dangerous men. However in the end, Andre and his tag team partner Giant Baba ended up being victorious.
