Well, Hogan and Andre were on Piper's Pit in early February '87 and WrestleMania was Mar 29. Maybe they started having the tension between Andre and Hogan a few weeks prior to that on the Pit. The first week Tunney honored Hogan with a large trophy on Piper's Pit for being Champion as long as he had been. The following week (or two) on the Pit Tunney gave Andre a much smaller trophy for his accomplishments. And during this you had Ventura and Heenan stirring the pot about the size difference of the trophies. But 30 years ago so I may be forgetting something, but I would say that match started to be promoted on the Pit in the few weeks of Mid January until early February when Andre attacked Hogan on that last Pit. As for when they announced the date and location I don't remember, but I certainly wasn't like it is now. I would say at best it was a couple months prior to the event. (Maybe Dec/Jan) Also remember there was no internet back then.
