Chapter One. "A Giant Awakens"
Andre the Giant has just won the WWF World Heavyweight Title achieving a goal that he was longing to accomplish for years now. It was eight years prior that a young brash Hulk Hogan came into Andre's territory and tried to give him a run for his money, but he had sent him packing all the way to Hollywood.
Four years later Hogan came back to his yard and was immediately given the Title. They became friends, but it was odd watching this man he could easily dismantle walk around with the biggest prize in wrestling. A prize he was never even given an opportunity to win. A prize which really should had been his. That is something he learned a few years later. Bobby Heenan, a man Andre was not very found of, was able to lift his suspension under one condition. That condition was he had to hear "The Brain", as he was known, out. He expected to hear something rather ridiculous, but it actually made a lot of sense. Hogan was walking around as the biggest star in the world, even though that spot belongs to Andre. That is when he let his "friend" Hogan know that he was indeed worthy of a title shot.
In 1987, Andre received that shot and it sure seemed like he won. However the referee decided Hogan got his shoulder up at the last second, even though Andre didn't think that happened. Hogan was able to duck Andre for another year, irritating an already angry giant. That is when the richest man he ever met made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Ted DiBiase said he would get Andre that title shot, if once he won the title he gave it to him. Of course Andre would be rewarded handsomely. If this was year's earlier Andre would never consider the offer, but he was getting older and his massive frame was causing him harm just existing. Holding and defending that title may be more work than it's worth.
The Main Event finally came and Andre finally achieved his goal, he had won the WWF World Heavyweight Title. The celebration was on, but it was also time to surrender that title. Weird thing though, Andre felt a bit drowsy and disoriented. The joy of winning the championship was being over taken by a weird sensation.
After a few moments Andre felt something he hadn't felt in years, relief. His joints didn't hurt. His back didn't hurt. Andre, besides a light head, felt great. Maybe I won't give DiBiase the title, if this is how I feel. However, how did he feel. More importantly, where was he?
He finally started to look around and noticed that he was in a small dark room laying on a pretty comfortable, but unorthodox bed. He sprang up as a hologram of a small person appeared before him.
"Hello, my name is Emperor Ralph." said the hologram to Andre's shock. The clothing was bizarre and the technology was out of this world. What was happening? That is when Ralph continued "Subject F. Let me see.. oh yes, Andre the Giant. Well Giant, I would like to welcome you to your new home for the next few months. Welcome to the Moon, and, I guess, welcome to the future.".
Andre didn't know what to make of this, could it be that he was on the moon in the future? This can't be happening, he was just in the ring. His thought process was interrupted by Ralph again "This may come as a shock to you and that is why this room is being filled with a pleasant gas that will help you relax and take this information in. Shortly you will fall back asleep and when you awake you will be released from this room and into the Facility where you will meet our other guests. Other wrestlers from your time. You have been brought here, because the Moon needs you badly. The citizens need a great spectacle and wrestling is the greatest spectacle the human race as ever devised."
Sleep was washing over the Giant, but he had to take this all in. "When I say you have been brought here, what I mean is just your mind and just for a short period. Afterwards your mind will be wiped of this whole experience and you will return to the exact moment when time when we gathered you. It will be like none of this happened. Until that time though, enjoy the facility, and in two weeks you will compete compete in a Royal Rumble with winner becoming the King of Moon Wrestling. I hope you enjoy your stay and put on a great show." With those words, Andre fell into the deepest sleep of his life. Although he was drowsy during this speech, he took in every word and by the end he knew it was true. Andre the Giant's mind was on the Moon, in some kind of body, and was here to kick ass.
