WrestleMania Season!!! Ranking Mania’s 1-15

/ by

Welcome to my WWE fansite!!! This site is 2 brothers who’ve been watching wrestling most of our lives, reaching out to the masses and making a site of wrestling memories, news, products, and everything wrestling related. This time of the year takes me back to when my grandpa was around and him and I would sit down every Monday night, PRE WWE RAW! lol and watch WWF wrestling, Saturday was our WCW night.

As the build up for WrestleMania starts and we wonder who our favorite and least favorite stars will face I wanted to make my own top WrestleMania list.. Now once again it’s all a matter of opinion, and if you disagree, please share and give your opinions, alot of these earlier cards are SO BOGGED DOWN with filler matches that we solely have a couple good matches on some cards. So away we go!

15-WrestleMania 2– Mania 2!!! Boy what a crap show! George Wells, Mr. T, Uncle Elmer, Corporal Kirchner, and random NFL players, with Mr. T and Roddy Piper, A Battle Royal, and Hogan-Bundy, headlining this card, few highlights minus WM debuts of Savage and Jake are around. Little more is needed to be said about this event lol

14-WrestleMania 9– The infamous WM 9….. Undertaker Giant Gonzales, and Crush vs Doink, not to mention Hulk Hogans title win are a part of a card, full of what the WWE was in this year. A business in transition, trying to rebuild from many departures, the steroid scandals as well, and a federation desperate for answers. This would be the Hulksters final Mania title win.

13-WrestleMania 4-This one kind of surprised me…  i remember when I first watched this card I enjoyed Savages win, DiBiase, Hogan, Andre, Muraco, Rude, Roberts, so many greats, and so many mediocre matches. In the only mania that was a tournament, you had a bunch of lack luster, blah matches leading up to a showdown between 2 legends in DiBiase and Savage. Watch again for yourself years later, let me know when you nod off to sleep by accident lol.

12-WrestleMania 15-Anybody remember Butterbean vs Bart Gunn? I do! Austin Rock 1, was a showcase of the future, and new era superstars for years to come. From the lynching of the Big Bossman, to Sables’ title defense, the rest of this card was largely forgetable.

11-WrestleMania 1-The show that started it all! I remember when I first watched Mania 1, I was excited. Heck this is the show that started the WWE! Instead I saw King Kong Bundy-SD Jones, Santana-Executioner, with Ricky Steamboat vs the late Matt Borne, probably the most entertaining match on the card, wrestling wise. And what should’ve been a Piper-Hogan main event, was a tag match full of predictability. At the end of the day it is still the first Mania, a must watch for any fan unfamiliar with the Rock N’ Wrestling era

10-WrestleMania 11-Bret Hart vs Bob Backlund and Shawn Michaels vs then WWF champion Kevin Nash…. WATCH THESE MATCHES, Otherwise keep your finger on your DVD players skip button lol. In respect to the late great Bam Bam Bigelow and one of my favorite all time players, Lawrence Taylor, I will speak no further on this main event.

9-WrestleMania 7-Watching Macho Man vs Ultimate Warrior these days reminds me of the great childhood memories I have when I remember both men cutting the classic promos they are known for, and despite yet another Hogan title win, this card can be remembered for their battle as well as watching Shawn Michaels, a couple years away from showcasing the talent we would see for years to come not to mention the early invincible Undertaker, at the beginning of his streak.

8-WrestleMania 6- Saying this is number 8, is hard for me being this was my first Mania, however despite the awesomeness that was The Ultimate Warrior Hulk Hogan, this card is however covered in forgettable bouts from some of our favorites of this era. Still this Main Event is arguably one of the most important matches in the history of the WWE

7-WrestleMania 5-Hogan vs Savage is the one of the greatest feuds and buildups we’ve ever seen in wrestling, despite the predictable Hogan win, this was still a great match, that along with Rick Rude vs Ultimate Warrior, are the highlights of this card, as well as Shawn Michaels Mania debut. Terry Taylor aka the Red Roosters lone mania match added minus points to this card

6-WrestleMania 3– Ricky Steamboat and Randy Savage would put on arguably one of the top 5 WM matches of all time, put together so gracefully I would recommend looking this match up for any fan who has never seen this classic, Hogan slamming Andre are highlights in a show that gave the WWF an all time attendance record.

5-WrestleMania 10-The Shawn Michaels Scott Hall ladder match is a top 10 classic, that put both performers into the superstar stratoshpere. Don’t forget Owen Harts victory over Bret Hart, as 2 matches to make this show a must watch for any die hard fan

4-WrestleMania 12-Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart is a clash of the champions that has tried to be recreated since but rarley duplicated, Undertaker vs Kevin Nash “Diesel”, is watchable battle of the big men as well.

3-WrestleMania 13-Austin vs Bret Hart, is a passing of the torch of things to come as well as watching the Rock and Triple H, proceed in the early stages of their careers makes this mania a fun watch. Undertaker wins the title as well in a infamous bout with Psycho Sid

2-WrestleMania 14-The Attitude era owns this Mania from Austins title victory over Shawn Michaels, the beginning of Undertaker Kanes feud, Triple H and The Rock, continue their climbs to the top as well in what is arguably one of the Most influential cards of all time.

1-WrestleMania 8– Randy Savage and Ric Flair battle in a Main Event many believe was supposed to be Hogan vs Flair, Neither would let the fans down in what was a battle of 2 of the all time greatest, Hulk Hogan would battle Psycho Sid, while arguably Bret Hart and Roddy Piper put on a classic in an Intercontinental title bout. Shawn Michaels solo debut and Undertaker-Jake Roberts, would also be a part of what is the best Mania as well as one of the greatest Manias of All Time

More to come!
