 Join us on SEscoops.com as we look back at WrestleMania’s of years past! 

Wrestlemania1WrestleMania (1985)
Date: March 31, 1985
Venue: Madison Square Garden
Attendance: 19,121
Hall Of Famers: Tito Santana, Ricky Steamboat, Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Andre the Giant, Big John Studd, Wendi Richter, Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Piper, and Paul Orndorff.

In 1983, Hulk Hogan was fired from the WWF for appearing in Rocky III. Vince J. McMahon felt it was a breach of contract (it may also have been part of the hype for the upcoming event). However, the notoriety Hulk received from being in the movie forced McMahon to welcome him back in 1984. In a nice promotional move McMahon then hired Hulk’s Rocky III costar Mr T to wrestle as Hulk’s tag team partner in the main event.
