FLiX | It was a cool night Friday in early 1988 and I was parked, along with my older sister, mother and father, in front of the television with anticipation as Andre The Giant squared off against Hulk Hogan in his WWF title rematch on The Main Event.
The match was very back and forth, but I always knew that Hogan would prevail. He had to because he had overcome the odds so many times before.
However, on this night, it wasn’t meant to be as Andre was able to pin Hogan, even though his shoulder was up, and win the WWF title, but then sold it to The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase seconds later as they both celebrated in the ring and a dejected and angry Hogan could only helplessly look on.
I was shocked and angry and wondered had this been a bad dream as it was found that Earl Hebner and his twin brother, Dave, had been in on an elaborate ruse and in the back pocket of DiBiase all long.
