On March 29, 1987, Wrestlemania III was held at the Pontiac Silverdome. With an attendance of 93,173, the wrestling event was the most highly attended sporting event until the NBA All-Star Game of 2010. The main event featured Hulk Hogan vs André the Giant, and also starred wrestling luminaries like Randy Savage, Junkyard Dog, Rickey Steamboat, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, and more.

The event was considered one of the high points for 80s wrestling. Since then, the Pontiac Silverdome has fallen on hard times. It's currently the home of the Detroit Mechanix, the city's ultimate frisbee team, when it's not being repaired from various damages.
