[1984-08-04-WWF-Philadelphia, PA] Andre the Giant vs Big John Studd


Recommended Posts

"The Battle of the Behemoths"

This is one of those PWO challenges where these guys wrestled so many times that there had to be at least one of them that doesn't stink, right? The best work I've seen from Studd is on the Garbage Tapes and those are usually partial clips. This is hardly worked as the title in quotes above from the ring announcer would suggest. Instead, Studd stays outside the ring and plays chickenshit a lot only to come back in for chin locks and front face locks and not much else from Andre. They run that same basic sequence three times but it does result in a decent chop fest when Studd does finally come at Andre with blows. Studd blocks the slam by grabbing the top rope and takes over with more big fists. Andre hits a huge knee lift and goes for another slam but Studd takes a walk. 

Better luck next time.
