A brief look at the best matches that have opened WrestleMania.
There is certainly no doubt in the fact that WrestleMania is the biggest festival in the world of wrestling. The home of some of the biggest matches and storylines, WrestleMania season brings a different adrenaline rush in both the fans as well as the wrestlers. Closing the 'Grand Spectacle' is a dream for every professional wrestler, but only a selected few get a chance to be in the main event of WrestleMania while others always stay on rest of the card. Being in the main event of WrestleMania is a demanding task as the fans have been waiting to see the main attraction for almost 4 hours.
