Not a great Wrestlemania match: Hulk Hogan vs. Sycho Sid--Wrestlemania 13

When it comes to Wrestlemania Icons, you can't get much bigger or bolder than Hulk Hogan. His Wrestlemania opponents are a veritable who's who of wrestling legends.

Then there was the time he faced the not-so-legendary Sycho Sid, aka Sid Vicious (Sid was initially brought in as Sid Justice, a babyface, but changed to heel so he could feud with the champ.)

At this point, Hulkamania was beginning to fade. After years of watching Hogan go through his shtick--getting pummeled for most of the match only to rise invincibly at the last minute--fans were just getting tired of it. You can look at the fan's faces in the above photo and see a lot of disengagement with the match. On paper, two behemoths in a Wrestlemania ring is a good thing. But this time, not so much.
