Ultimate Warrior vs. Hulk Hogan
Intercontinental and WWE Championship Match

Champion vs. champion. The two biggest names in the business. Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. It was "The Ultimate Challenge." It was the main event for WrestleMania VI in which both Hogan's WWE and the Warrior's Intercontinental Championship were on the line.

In what went down as one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history, both Hogan and Warrior gave it their all for nearly 20 minutes. After Hogan escaped from a Warrior splash, the adrenaline began to run through his body and Warrior saw that all-too-familiar look in his opponent's eyes -- Hogan was about to finish the Warrior off.

Hogan nailed the Warrior with a boot to the face and went for the patented leg drop to end the match. But at the last second, Warrior moved and nailed a stunned Hogan with a second splash to win both championships and the "Ultimate Challenge!"

In a true show of sportsmanship, Hogan handed Warrior the WWE Championship after the match. The two then shared an emotional embrace in the center of the ring.
