I always found Ricky Steamboat boring when I was a kid. And I loved the Hogan/Andre match, and it was the main reason I wanted to see the show.

So I agree with Snow.

Flair/Steamboat was like the exact opposite of "over-rehearsed." They went out and did their thing while barely thinking about it.

I think Hogan/Andre was moderately well-worked for what it was, but I wouldn't call it a great match regardless of how much money it drew.

Why do I have the feeling that the people complaining about these "over-rehearsed" matches absolutely LOVE Hogan-Warrior?

Certainly the Andre/Hogan match wasn't the best but it sure drew the fans in, I believed the WWF hype that Andre never lost and was never slammed so I didn't think Hogan winning was a given. What really made Wrestlemania 3 so special was that I also cared about a number of the other matches and  was really enjoying the other feuds. My friends and I were really interested in many of the matches lower on the card like JYD/Race, Hercules/Haynes, Roberts/Honkytonk Man and seeing Dangerous Danny Davis get beat up by the Bulldogs.

As action packed Savage-Steamboat was, it also didn't involve the crowd very much. There wasn't a whole lot of 'reacting'. It has that in common with the "over rehearsed as seen on TV" matches now...more reacting than they do now, but still, it was pretty much the two guys checking spots off, with the crowd trying to keep up.

Hogan-Warrior they went over it once, but if you watch it there's reacting to the crowd, as well as "the dance".  

Savage and Steamboat could have had that same match in a TV studio.

Andre vs. Hogan was all about the moment and the anticipation to it. It's not a match that can be enjoyed when viewed after the fact, at least not from an artistic standpoint. Andre was too far gone by then physically.

Most of Flair/Steamboat matches came off very, very rehearsed. they did the same spots, over and over again. Very little involvement with the sparse crowds they drew, and it has very little replay value for me. I am not going to waste 45 mins of my time watching them again.

For the record I enjoyed Steamboat's run with Roberts and Luger a heck of a lot more because those matches featured brawling and contrasting styles.

I thought the segment where they go to the floor was a mistake all around. It didn't help the match. (Hogan-Andre).
