Hulkamania Triumphant as WrestleMania 3 Venue Survives Attempted Demolition

In 1987, in front of 863 billion screaming Hulkamaniacs at the Pontiac Silverdome, the Immortal Hulk Hogan hefted the 2,000-pound Andre the Giant high above his head and slammed him down to the mat, etching forever into history one of pro wrestling's most memorable moments at WrestleMania 3.

But in 2017, the Silverdome is scheduled for demolition, which was set to begin today. But proving that the unstoppable force of Hulkamania is still running wild, when explosive charges were detonated to take out some steel support beams and destroy the stadium, the Silverdome stood up, shook its head, and stuck its finger in the face of the city of Detroit as the crowd shouted, "YOOUU!"

The explosives had no effect, and the stadium remained completely intact, effectively no-selling the entire thing. Does the Silverdome have a creative control clause in its contract, brother?

The Hulkster himself has taken notice of the failed demolition, and offered to step in.

It looks like the city of Detroit worked itself into a shoot, brother. As the explosive charges went off, and the building stood strong, we can only imagine that the silky smooth voice of Rick Derringer filled the arena…

I am a real American…

Fight for the rights of Every Man…

I am a real American…

Fight for what's right…

Fight for your LIIIIFFFE!
