The Main Event at WrestleMania. A spot where every wrestler wants to find themselves at in their career. These matches can elevate a career or be forgotten entirely. So, with WrestleMania inching closer, let’s take a look at where the thirty-one main events of WrestleMania ranked at in my eyes.
31. Lawrence Taylor vs. Bam Bam Bigelow at WrestleMania 11- It’s hard to sell a main event with a football player in it, especially at the biggest show of the year. LT and Bigelow put on a very forgettable match that should have been on the mid-card. It didn’t help that Diesel and Shawn Michaels had an excellent match right before.
30. Bret Hart vs. Yokozuna at WrestleMania 9- This match didn’t have any breath-taking maneuvers or shocking twists and turns. The credibility of this match surely doesn’t help that Yokozuna won off of a dirty tactic by Mr. Fuji, just to lose the title to Hulk Hogan a few minutes later.
29. Hulk Hogan vs. Sid Justice at WrestleMania 8- Not many Hulk Hogan matches disappointed fans, especially at The Showcase of The Immortals. This match was one of the few exceptions, due to the fact that Justice couldn’t keep the intensity going with The Hulkster throughout the match. This match was not deserving of the main event, as Ric Flair and “Macho Man” Randy Savage had a fantastic match for the WWF World Heavyweight Title in the co-main event and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Bret Hart battled for the Intercontinental Title.
