Braun Strowman Compares His WWE Crown Jewel Match To Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant

Braun Strowman and Hulk Hogan

The fateful battle between Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant at WrestleMania III has gone down as one of the biggest main events in WWE history.

While the bout was far from a technical masterclass, the site of the WWE Champion going up against the now-villainous giant was a spectacle like no other. The match almost ended early when Hogan attempted to bodyslam Andre and the 7ft star fell on top of him, almost getting the pinfall victory.

However, Hulk Hogan fought on and was able to create one of the first WrestleMania Moments when he picked up the 525lb Andre and slammed him to the mat. He followed up with his signature Leg Drop to get the win and retain his title to a rapturous ovation from the audience.

Braun Strowman claims his match with Omos will be just as big

At Crown Jewel on November 5th, The Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman, will face off against The Nigerian Giant, Omos.

Not wanting to downplay the significance of the two behemoths meeting in singles action for the first time, Strowman has taken to social media to hype the match. In an Instagram post, he claimed there has never been a “monumental match” like it, and says the only comparison is Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant.

“A fight fit for literal kings!! There’s has never been a monumental event like this in history idk ever. The only thing that can compare is Hogan vs Andre.
