10. Rollins cashes in (WrestleMania 31)
WrestleMania 31 was a good card you had Sting vs. Triple H, Six man ladder match for the intercontinental champion, and an RKO from out of nowhere to Seth Rollins. The main event saw Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns square up for the world title. Reigns had won the 2015 Royal Rumble which had not gone over with the fans, and Brock Lesnar was this unstoppable force in the WWE that ends bouts in three minutes. The match went more prolonged as both superstars tried to brutalize each other. After they did Seth Rollins music hits and is running down the ramp with the Money In The Bank briefcase. Rollins tried to sneak a win did not work, so it became a triple threat match, but in the end, Rollins came out victorious.
9. A Dream Come True (WrestleMania 12)
Shawn Micheals AKA Mr.Wresltlemania would go on to have an amazing WWE career and have many WrestleMania moments and matches. But no other feeling will be like the moment he had WrestleMania 12. After winning the 1995 Roya Rumble, Micheals would go to face Bret Hart in what is arguably the greatest WrestleMania match of all time. The match was a 60-minute Iron-Man match that saw both men put on a show but ultimately would go to overtime. Micheals came out with the win and won the WWF title at WrestleMania, and his boyhood dream had become true.
8. Austin And Tyson Unlikely Friends (WrestleMania 14)
After his babyface turn at WrestleMania 13, Stone Cold Steve Austin would be built as this anti-authority, brash, loudmouth guy. Austin won the rumble and got the chance to face Mr. Wresltemania himself, Shawn Micheals. Micheals was apart of D-Generation X alongside Triple H and guest enforcer for the match “Iron” Mike Tyson. In the end, Austin comes out victorious after Stunning Micheals and Tyson counting the fall. After the match, Micheals tried to put hands on Tyson but got knocked out with a right hand. This elevated Austin into being a driving force in the Attitude Era.
7. TLC 2 (WrestleMania 17)
When you think about tag team wrestling, you cannot forget some of the greatest tag teams that paved the way for some of the newer guys. Three of the greatest teams all went at it again on the grandest stage of them all. The Hardy Boyz, The Dudleyz and Edge, and Christain. They fought before at Summerslam, but their match at WrestleMania had many memorable spots. One spot, in particular, was the spear by Edge to Jeff Hardy while Hardy was hanging 15 feet in the air. In the end, Edge and Christian won the tag team titles.
6. The Kodak Moment Ending (WrestleMania 20)
WWE tried erasing these moments from everyone’s head due to the tragic and horrific events that took place years later. But nonetheless, this is still one of the greatest WrestleMania moments. WrestleMania 20 had two main events one was Eddie Guerrero retaining his WWE Championship against Kurt Angle. The other was Chris Benoit winning his first World Heavyweight Championship against Triple H and Shawn Micheals. After the triple threat match, Guerrero came down to congratulate long-time friend Benoit the both hugged as confetti came down and it a special moment.
5. The Slam Heard Around The World (WrestleMania 3)
When you think about some of the greatest WWF/E moments, you have to think about Hulk Hogan slamming Andre, The Giant. The rivalry between the two started after Andre had turned heel on Hogan. The storyline would put Andre as a dominating force. Hogan and Andre the Giant would meet at WrestleMania where Hogan would slam Andre and blow the roof of the arena.
4. Icon vs. Icon (WrestleMania 18)
Two of the biggest stars in wrestling history going one on one in the biggest match of the year just seems like a dream. The Rock who at the time was bigger than life itself and Hulk Hogan who was still part of the NWO. Both men went the distance in that match it was a match that as a fan you can’t believe it is happening. The win over Hogan would cement The Rock as “the guy” in WWE at that time. It was more of Hogan passing the torch down to the Rock.
3. Nature Boy Retires (WrestleMania 24)
“I’m Sorry, I love You.” Those were the words an emotional Shawn Micheals muttered to Ric Flair before delivering sweet chin music and getting the three count. At the time the storyline was if Ric Flair lost a match he would be forced to retire, and Vince McMahon would put Shawn Micheals to go one on one with Flair. Flair would eventually lose that match and be forced to retire.
2. Yes Yes Yes! (WrestleMania 30)
Daniel Bryan’s career in WWE is memorable. Bryan was told he was not good enough that he does not have what it takes to be that guy and that he will never win a championship in WWE. Bryan had to jump through hoops just to get his title shot at WrestleMania. Bryan had to face Triple H in the early part of the night if he won he would add to the main event as a triple threat against Batista and Randy Orton. Daniels would eventually win both matches and become champion and the fairytale ending to WrestleMania 30 would be completed.
1. THE STREAK IS OVER! (WrestleMania 30)
The Undertaker has immortalized his legacy at WrestleMania by going undefeated for 21 straight years. Competitors have come and gone, but The Undertaker has buried them all. All of that changed at WrestleMania 30 when Brock Lesnar took on The Undertaker. Lesnar pinned Taker and ended the streak was a moment that nobody can forget. The Undertaker’s undefeated streak made a significant part in the evolution of WrestleMania.
