The Ultimate Challenge: World Heavyweight Champion vs. Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion [Rare Videos]

The build up to the match started at the 1990 WWF Royal Rumble where the Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior went face to face for a brief encounter that excited the fans and the matchmakers of the World Wrestling Federation. In February 1990, Hulk Hogan offered a World Heavyweight Championship title shot to The Ultimate Warrior.

Now imagine this: April Fool's Day, April 1, 1990, nearly 68,000 people attending a professional wrestling event to witness Hulk Hogan, the World Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Champion against The Ultimate Warrior, the World Wrestling Federation Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion in a Title vs Title Match. 

Named 1990's "Match of the Year" by Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine readers, the match lasted almost 23 minutes and ended with a clean pinfall. The Ultimate Warrior went on to hold the WWF World Heavyweight Championship for 293 days. Hulk Hogan wouldn't become WWF Champion again until he defeated Sgt. Slaughter on March 24, 1991.
