SLAM! Wrestling Review: By JOHN POWELL

WRESTLEMANIA For the first time ever WrestleMania is held outside the United States. As the majority of us at SLAM! Wrestling call Ontario home and were part of the SkyDome attendance that day, we can't help to be slightly biased as far as WrestleMania 6 is concerned. I, myself, was sitting with my future wife in the nose bleed section praying that Hulk-A-Mania would finally be destroyed. That day I got my wish.

WrestleMania 6 was very similar to WrestleMania 5. Both had so-so undercards chased by a main event of colossal proportions. Now dubbed The Immortal One, Hulk Hogan is hounded by a man who represents the future of the WWF, the Intercontinental Champion, The Ultimate Warrior. Warrior is so convinced that he can beat Hogan he's putting up the I.C. belt in a title-for-title match. That alone makes things very interesting. Neither is really the heel though the WWF does try its best to portray the Warrior as such by having him assume a wilder look (frizzy hair) and putting down the Hulk-A-Mania movement as outdated and weak. For me personally, I can't hard remember hearing a louder live pop than when The Warrior covered Hogan for the 1-2-3. It was simply amazing to be there.

Favourite Moments: Hogan leaving SkyDome looking all dejected like as Warrior whooped it up in the ring. The Colossal Connection (Haku / Andre The Giant) and Demolition slugging it out.

Least Favourite Moments: Jimmy Snuka as a jobber.

Rating: Good.
