Wrestlemania III is well known for Hulk Vs Andre and Savage vs Steamboat. However, another great match on the card was Adorable Adrian Adonis vs Rowdy Roddy Piper. The pre-match promos were awesome, and the crowd reaction was insane. Adonis moved very well for a man of his size. There is a reason he was nicknamed the human pinball, and it was his ability to take great bumps. Also, Jimmy Hart did a great job as the heel manager and took his share of punishment.

Also, around 12:55 a fan even entered the ring and congratulated Piper... then got took down by security. Man, the 80s were so lit!

Love this match, I don't rate WMIII as high as most but this one is probably my second favorite match after Steamboat/Savage

We shouldn't really be surprised that Adonis moved well - he deliberately changed his training regimen to appear more flabby for the "Adorable" gimmick, but still remained a good athlete. The whole gimmick felt like a punishment from Vince, and there's something to be said for the fact that they outright ignored his 1988 death, never acknowledging it on TV.

You never saw any of Gorgeous George or Exotic Adrian Street? A lot of their gimmicks were used in the Adorable gimmick. Guess what? All three worked. Guess what else? After Adonis' WWF was done, he took the gimmick with him to AWA. Some punishment, huh? Also had a good position when he was there.

Did you just go read some rant from another Incel on yalls Incel anonymous Twitter page? Was that the source of your anti-vince stick here? Seems like you spout a lot of unverified nonsense on here.

I despise gimmick tbh, I think it just tried to be Adrian Street and Gorgeous George and was a much much worse version :lol But I do rate Adonis as a performer and really enjoyed him before it started

What the hell are you talking about?

That looks nothing like the gay porn I watch.
