Yeah, the match length is the only real drawback. It's back when WWF used to jam 14 matches into WrestleMania. But even as a little mark who couldn't be bothered to care about the quality of technical wrestling, that match wowed me on workrate back in the day.
With our next pick I am going to select what can only be called simply the greatest match in wrestling history. If star power is what you want, this is for you. If surprising returns is what you want, this is for you. If you're a fan of classic mat wrestling with fast pace back and forth action then this is the match for you.
Austin/Rock at WM X7 is considered one of the greatest matches of all time. But it wasn't even the best match on the card.
And who can ever forget the winner of this match:
The GOAT Yokozuna vs. Brooke Hogan's Dad- World Wildlife Foundation Championship
Mean Mark Callaway vs. Giant Gonzales- The Streak's Ultimate Test
Bret the ****man Fart vs Vinny Mac- The match 56 years in the making
Jerry the King Lawler vs Sir Michael Cole (with Jack Swagger) Special Guest Referee: The RingMaster
Bill Goldberg vs Bork Laser Special Guest Referee: That guy from the Hollywood Blondes
Gimmick Battle Royal
Possibly the worst story ever with a love triangle between Edge, Big Slow and Vickie and then Cena gets thrown in cos he threatened to reveal Vickie cheated on Edge with Slow if he didnt get a title match and then did anyway cos he is a huge dick isnt something ive gone out to draft. But this one is for the kids who get to cheer on jeaaaaannnnnn ceeeeeeeeeennnnnnaaaaaaaarrrrrrr and when three of the most decorated champions in wrestling come together in one triple threat the match itself is no worse than really really solid.
Rounding out my dual main event is Edge (c) vs Cena vs Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship, joining the completely star packed card of:
Angle (c) vs Brock for the WWE Championship
MITB featuring CM Punk and Jericho
Rock vs Stone Cold
HBK vs Vince McMahon
Undertaker vs Kane
So far I have almost covered every major star since the start of the attitude era.
World Heavyweight Championship - Triple H (c) vs Booker T
It's time to add another World title match to my card, and this is the only one left available to me. It's certainly a good enough match though, and is my best option at this point. Triple H is in his prime as a heel around this time, and Booker is probably the most over he has ever been; a lot of people think Booker should have gone over here. Also, JR and the King are on fire during this one.
Flair is at ringside but I don't think that hurts my card as the match he is in is as a part of Evolution, and Triple H was also in Evolution so it fits.
My Wrestlemania Card:
WWF Championship Hulk Hogan (c) vs Andre The Giant (WM3)
Streak vs Career The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels (WM26)
World Heavyweight Championship
Triple H (c) vs Booker T (WM19)
Intercontinental Championship Roddy Piper (c) vs Bret Hart (WM8)
Women's Championship Trish Stratus (c) vs Mickie James (WM22)
Three on Two Handicap Match Evolution (Ric Flair/Randy Orton/Batista) vs Rock n Sock Connection (The Rock/Mick Foley) (WM20)
If the match is as meh as TN and lkj says would have drafted something else rather than the WHC match. I watched an undrafted that would have been a very similar like for like swap only it used a midcard belt instead of the big gold belt as you dont need the draw of the BGB on top imo.
I heard in an interview that it wasn't HHH's fault that Booker didn't go over in that match. They had been planning for Booker to go over but they literally signed Goldberg 10 days before Mania. And Vince's thought process was that it's important that they have a strong heel for Goldberg to take on once he got to the WWE.
Ok, then back to me now? Well, since I was a fan of Jeff Hardy from late 2006 to the day he got arrested, I decided to choose what's left of his matches so I choose the match against his brother (who too was all right, before he went crazy).
Hardy vs Hardy still annoys me. It wasnt especially offensively bad, but i went in expecting balls out craziness with spots galore and at least one mega spot that id never forget. The closest that came was i recall there being a leg drop from a ladder.
Matt turning on Jeff was a flawed story from day zero. Shudda gone with Christian attacking Jeff ffs, no one cared that we "worked it out", you dont need to ****ing shock us every time, when we like it you should still do it!
