It's hard to believe that it's been 33 years since Wrestlemania I. Over the years, Wrestlemania has grown by leaps and bounds. A large part of that growth can be attributed to marquee match-ups that lived up to or, in many cases, exceeded the fans' expectations. Here are my five greatest Wrestlemania matches of all time.

#5 The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 25
The buzz around this match was whether the Undertaker's streak of 16 straight Wrestlemania wins would continue or not. Fans wondered why Shawn Michaels, rather than another younger opponent, was accorded the privilege of being the challenger.
While there was the expectation of a surprise in store, also, there were lingering doubts on whether these two aging legends were still capable of delivering a Wrestlemania mania event worth performance.
What followed was a grueling thirty-minute war that kept the fans on the edge of their seats. There were high-quality maneuvers, big hitting and swift moves that awed the audience. In the end, the result was as most people expected, or rather, as most fans had hoped for- an Undertaker win.
The respect for these two legends, at the end of that match, had risen another notch in the eyes of their fans. For this reason, this match makes it to #5 of my greatest of all time matches.
