For the next 26 days I plan to write a blog about SummerSlam to go along with a corresponding letter of the alphabet. I'm starting the series with one of the greatest of all-time Andre the Giant. The 8th Wonder of the World was a part of the first couple of SummerSlam events, main eventing in the inaugural show.
In 1988, Andre was well past his prime, but was arguably the company's top heel still, feuding with Hulk Hogan for more than a year. Andre and "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase made up the team of The Mega Bucks, set to take on WWF World heavyweight champion Randy "Macho Man" Savage and Hogan. That duo was known as The Mega Powers.
