Top 3 most iconic moments in WWE history
- Find out the 3 most iconic moments in the history of the most popular pro wrestling brand.
This world is defined by iconic moments, because we always have that one thing about some place, or some event which we just can’t forget. That moment keeps repeating in our heads, and we cherish it with our friends over a cup of coffee or whenever we hang out with them.
Those moments give us goosebumps and make us excited or sad, and send us on a roller-coaster of emotions.
It’s these great moments that leave a lasting impression in people’s minds about a person or a place, and it creates a bond.
When it comes to WWE, a lot of these moments happen which create a star out of a wrestler overnight. Even though they may have been putting in the work for years, but they get the centre stage thanks to their iconic moments.
There are a lot of such moments which have happened in the rich history of WWE, but perhaps none greater than the three mentioned below.
#3 The birth Of Austin 3:16
Give me a hell yeah!! One of the most popular wrestlers of all time, and the man with the most merchandise sales in WWE history, Stone Cold Steve Austin’s 3:16 moment was his beginning towards unparalleled stardom and popularity in the years to come.
This moment happened after his match against Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts in which he beat him for the King of the Ring title in the year 1996.
Reason: In that interview when he says that Steve Austin’s time has come, it truly had come.
After that there was no stopping this man, as he went on to win 3 Royal Rumbles (most ever), 6 World Championships, and also main evented WrestleMania 3 times.
#2 R.I.P the streak
When one of the most popular streaks in all of sports history was broken, nobody could believe what had happened. It was a moment no one thought would ever come.
First because The Undertaker seemed unbeatable in his yard, and second - WWE seemed to always make a big deal out of The Undertaker’s WrestleMania matches.
Reason: This is an iconic moment because it was unpredictable, as betting odds were in The Undertaker’s favour, and Brock Lesnar had lost his prior match to Triple H.
Nobody could have predicted that WWE had such big audacious plans to push Brock Lesnar to the roof after breaking the streak.
Before that The Undertaker had won 21 consecutive matches on the Grandest Stage against big names such as Shawn Michaels and Triple H.
