    One of my favorite wrestling events from the 80s. The battle royal with NFL players and wrestlers was great. I think that's where the "Andre the giant battle royal" comes from because he won it. Overall

    A-.

  • It was the one and only time The WWF/WWE had a Wrestlemania in Multiple Venues in Multiple Cities. WWE never did that again. The Battle Royal was 1/2 WWF Wrestlers and 1/2 NFL Players that was rather interesting.

    It is definitely all fake, well choreographed, but fake just the same.
