You can feel it in the air. WrestleMania is only two weeks away. For a wrestling fan, WrestleMania is like the combination of the Super Bowl and Christmas morning. The WWE Universe's anticipation and excitement grows more and more, as the day draws near. We have seen countless moments that include Hulk Hogan slamming Andre the Giant, the Austin era beginning, and Shawn Michaels retiring "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair. All of these memorable events occurred at a different WrestleMania. So, which WrestleMania is the best?
Everyone remembers the "Attitude Era". It was an awesome time to be a wrestling fan. The WWE roster was loaded with gigantic stars. "Stone Cold", The Rock, DX, and The Undertaker carried the WWE to victory in the Monday Night Wars. After Mr. McMahon purchased World Championship Wrestling, he wanted to prove to the world that he was the king of sports entertainment. WWE flexed their muscles by putting together one of the greatest match cards in the history of professional wrestling.
WrestleMania X7 is the greatest WrestleMania in it's 34 year history. Vince McMahon needed a huge venue for this massive event. As they all say, "everything is bigger in Texas". The WWE loaded up their trucks and headed to the Astrodome in Houston, Texas.
The main event featured the WWE Champion, The Rock taking on Texas' own, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Two of the biggest superstars in WWE history battled for the biggest prize in the business. Anytime you put The Rock and Austin in a match, the place will sell out. It is the undercard that separates WrestleMania X7 from any other WrestleMania.
The Dudley Boyz will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on the night before WrestleMania 34. Their former rivals, Edge and Christian will do the honors of welcoming Bubba Ray and D-Von to the Hall of Fame. These two decorated teams, along with The Hardy Boyz made a name for themselves at WrestleMania X7. The second ever Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match was the best of it's kind. Jeff Hardy's death defying leaps and Edge's spear from a 20 foot ladder makes this the greatest tag team championship in history.
The Tag Team Championship wasn't the only title on the line as Right to Censor's Ivory looked to keep the Women's title in a match against the returning, Chyna. "The Ninth Wonder of the World" had recently returned from a devastating neck injury. After being unable to walk at the Royal Rumble, she made quick work of Ivory and walked out the WWE Women's champion.
The phrase "End of an Era" was used during Triple H and The Undertaker's feud going into WrestleMania 28. The Hell in a Cell match in Miami, Florida was booked because of the result of their match at WrestleMania 27. However, this feud officially began a decade before in 2001. Triple H realized he has defeated The Rock, Austin, and other stars. "The Game" thought he had beaten everyone in the WWE. The Undertaker was quick to respond by challenging Triple H to a match at WrestleMania X7. The Undertaker would have his hand raised, but "The Deadman" knew his streak nearly ended before it really picked up steam.
WrestleMania X7 proved to be the biggest and best ever. Kurt Angle, Kane, Chris Jericho, and Eddie Guererro were all victorious on April 1st, 2001. This event was clearly the showcase of the immortals.
