10 best WrestleMania main events
When wrestling fans think of wrestling events, they think of WrestleMania. WrestleMania persists not only as a wrestling mega-show, but also as a crossover between sports entertainment and pop culture.
The involvement of pop culture icons in WrestleMania storylines continues to be an effective way for the WWE to expand its audience. Celebrities frequently appear at WrestleMania as a part of the crowd or matches, and sometimes they even perform live.
While the appearance of celebrities compliments wrestlers’ in-ring performance, a stand-out WrestleMania showing influences can boost an entertainer’s standing in the company. By the same token, a mistake or botch can land one in trouble.
However, the main event is the culmination of this mega show and should stand out. Thus, here are the top ten WrestleMania main events in no specific order. These ten matches were chosen based on their importance, match quality, build up, and historical significance.
#10 Wrestlemania VI: Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior for the WWF championship
In 1990, Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior were two of the biggest Superstars in the WWE. Leading up to Wrestlemania VI in Toronto, WWE had positioned The Ultimate Warrior, then Intercontinental champion, The Ultimate Warrior, as the next megastar. He was soon to be on Hogan’s level.
During the road to WrestleMania, the two entertainers delivered passionate sometimes strange promos against each other. Neither wrestler was known for their technical acumen, but they were able to put on an entertaining 20-minute plus match.
Hulk Hogan missed his trademark leg drop and the Warrior hit a big splash and got the three count. This main event was their first encounter as opponents and was their best match. Warrior came out on top in front of 67,000 fans packed in the Skydome.
