Video packages are filled with them, announcers praise them, and wrestlers can’t stop talking about them: Each year, the WWE makes a massive deal when it comes to WrestleMania Moments, containing incredible events that undoubtably make the annual event a major success. They continuously play throughout time and are considered a universal feeling above all else. These moments are essentially the backbone of WWE, which is why wrestle enthusiasts keep coming back for more. With a total of 32 events, there have been endless moments in WrestleMania.
Let’s take a look at some of the top-rated moments that will live on for years to come.
WrestleMania 6 – The Ultimate Challenge
It’s difficult to explain what occurred in our heads when the Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan faced each other. The match was created out of pure confrontation during the Royal Rumble. After facing each other, the Ultimate Warrior saved Hulk Hogan from elimination, only to be clotheslined by the Hulk himself. Both of them agreed to fight each other, creating the biggest match the world has ever seen as it was basically the Intercontinental Champion against the Heavyweight champion. At the end, the Ultimate Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan which is a fight no one will ever forget.
WrestleMania X8 – Icon vs Icon
WrestleMania Moments are basically about fantasy turning into reality. No one can argue that the two most renowned wrestlers colliding in the ring wouldn’t symbolise everything WrestleMania stood for. That is exactly what occurred when Hulk Hogan went up against the Rock. This was a phenomenal moment in wrestling history, the present versus the legendary past and the crowd went absolutely nuts for each and every performance provided by these two superstars.
WrestleMania 12 – The Boyhood Dream
Bret Hart versus Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 12 is arguably the most unfairly maligned and unfairly praised match in the history of WrestleMania Moments. The run-up to the event contrasted Hart’s and Michaels’ diverse background, including Hart’s rise from the dungeon of his father to the top of the WWE along with Michaels’ close relationship with Jose Lothario as his mentor. Shawn was coming off a difficult year, both in-story and personally and was in the process of facing the face of the WWE at the time. The match was extraordinary, to say the least, but at the end, Michaels took the belt, turning the Heartbreak Kid’s dream into a reality.
WrestleMania 30 – 21 – 1
Undertaker’s winning streak is something that never should have ended in WWE. A total of 21 years with a whopping 21 victories. The streak eventually turned into a high profile event, providing more wonder and excitement with each passing year. However, at WrestleMania 30, Brock Lesnar squared off against the Undertaker, changing everything in the process. The two pro wrestlers battled it out for quite some time, indicating that the Undertaker might claim another victory. However, Brock Lesnar performed his famous F5 move, ending the streak dead in its tracks.
