Monsoon, I was there, I still have my ticket stub, that should be worth a point or two!

After seeing this question, I looked to see if there was video of it. The fight is on Youtube, and boy, Andre not only was moving quick...he was really legit pissed off. Wepner is lucky he didn't really get hurt.

The 'match' is great. 100 times more entertaining than Ali vs Inoki was.

The Ali / Inoki was a joke. It was on a big screen from Japan, Blassie was there instead of with Hansen, who was wrestling for the title!

Robert Gino Gorilla Monsoon Marella. This fight no predetermined ending was at Shea Stadium June 25 1976. It was on the undercard of Bruno-Hansen. A melee broe out at the end with Gorilla Monsoon and Al Braverman Wepners second going at it. It was over the boxing people trying to get Chuck back into the ring after he was counted out.

What is the story on this? I know I have seen a clip before.... but I will have to revisit it. Was this a warm-up match after Ali/Andre was already announced?

And they legit went into it with no finish booked?

Monsoon is there 'just in case' as the story goes. I'll have to go back and watch it. I think it is worked but I forget what the tipoff to that is.
