These deserve another look!

The grandest stage of them all, WWE's biggest PPV of the year, WrestleMania, has been home to some of the greatest wrestling matches of all time. Matches that are being talked about since decades, and will be talked about for decades to come.

But sometimes the mega event has some great matches that are not talked about, not remembered or even forgotten about, and thus, very underrated.

Here is a list of five such matches.


#5 Bret Hart vs 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper - WrestleMania VIII

A
A smooth collision

This show and match is when Bret Hart became a star. Bret and Roddy Piper, being both ultra popular at the time, had the crowd split right down the middle mere moments into the match. However, as Bret was the future babyface of the company, Roddy had to heel it up to help cement Bret as the popular choice for the audience in this one. He did this perfectly by resorting to heel tactics and short cuts, which commentator Gorilla Monsoon played up to help get Hart over even more.

This was a smooth collision with a perfect blend of fighting dirty, technical skill and putting over an up and comer. The roof nearly blew off the building when Bret scored the 3 count, and was awarded the Intercontinental Championship by Piper himself.
