WrestleMania History

By JOHN POWELL -- SLAM! Wrestling

WrestleMania. It is the most distinguished event in pro wrestling. Simply put, it is the show of shows. The brainchild of Vince McMahon Jr., the first WrestleMania, broadcast in 1985, expanded the pay-per-view market (along with closed circuit TV) and added a whole new dimension to the industry as a whole. So influential was McMahon's venture that the business of pro-wrestling now is almost entirely built around pay-per-view broadcasts.

If you're like us at SLAM! Wrestling, every year you like to refresh your memory and once again experience those WrestleMania moments that are an essential part of why you remain a devout wrestling fan. You dust off those tapes, DVDs or that Best Of WrestleMania tape you dubbed on your own and distributed to the other members of the office staff, slam them into the player and transport yourself back in time. To help guide you along your journey and celebrate the history of WrestleMania, SLAM! Wrestling will be publishing a WrestleMania review each and every day (Monday to Friday) leading up to the big show. We invite you to come along for the ride and share in your favourite moments too. The events are rated as Poor, Average, Good and Excellent.


Hart elevated at WrestleMania 10

History Of WrestleMania

Date: March 20, 1994.
Place: Madison Square Garden, New York City.

WRESTLEMANIA
Much like WrestleMania 8 in many respects. Here is another two match card but what matches they were! Their fictional sibling rivalry reaching a boiling point, Bret and Owen Hart put on a classic contest that both Canadian superstars would look back on as one of their best matches ever. The same goes for Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels who set the standard for ladder matches with their pulse-pounding, rip-roaring collision of flesh, bone and steel that literally brought the house down.

In a ingenious twist, all three world title participants -- Yokozuna, Lex Luger and Bret Hart -- had to wrestle twice in one evening to capture (or in Yokozuna's case...retain) the coveted gold strap. To instill the notion of a changing of the guard to everyone, the locker room emptied out to celebrate Hart's hard-fought WWF World Heavyweight Title win.

Favourite Moments: Owen beating Bret by outwitting him. The ladder match. Bret in turn outwitting Yokozuna. Luger losing.

Least Favourite Moments: Men On A Mission as a tag team. The blunder of a mixed tag team match.

Rating: Great.
