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.


WrestleMania 7, all out war

History Of WrestleMania

Date: March 24, 1991.
Place: The Los Angeles Sports Arena, Los Angeles.

WRESTLEMANIA
The WWF capitalizes on the patriotism surrounding the on-going Gulf War to enlist The Real American, Hulk Hogan, for active duty once again. Since stripping The Ultimate Warrior of the WWF World Title, Sgt. Slaughter has been on a rampage with his manager General Adnon spewing hateful venom against America and extolling the virtues of Iraq. Although Slaughter's best days are behind him he has commendable slugfest with Hogan. The best part being the wickedly cool backstage fireball thrown in Hogan's face which was filmed but shown afterwards on the WWF's flagship Saturday wrestling show. The Blindfold Match goes down as one of the worst matches...ever. Randy Savage puts his carrer on the line against The Ultimate Warrior and a mystery guest shows up to aid Savage. There's a nice twist thrown into the Nasty Boys - Hart Foundation match too.

Favourite Moments: Randy Savage goes out with style. Hogan gets hardcore...as hardcore as he can be anyways.

Least Favourite Moments: Jimmy Snuka as a jobber...again. The Blindfold Match.

Rating: Average.
