WWE WrestleMania History: 20 greatest moments in the history of the PPV (#10-6)
The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania, is just days away. The 35th edition will emanate from Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. WrestleMania has annually set the stage for the most iconic moments in the history of the professional wrestling business.
In order to honour 35 years of the Grandest Stage of Them All, I will be counting down the 20 most memorable moments in WrestleMania history up to this point.
The first and second part of the list can be viewed here: 20 greatest moments in Wrestlemania history (#20-16).
Let's continue this list with number 10.
#10 Steamboat beats Randy Savage for the Intercontinental Title - WrestleMania 3
WrestleMania 3 had the biggest WrestleMania main event in history with Hulk Hogan facing Andre the Giant in front of 93,000 fans in the Pontiac Silverdome.
While that may have been the match that put the fans in their seats, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat vs. “Macho Man” Randy Savage for the Intercontinental Championship was the match that took them out of their seats.
It has been 32 years since this match happened and it still holds true today as one of the best matches of WrestleMania history. The crowd pop at the end when Steamboat became Intercontinental Champion was massive, and that is still a great moment in WWE history.
#9: Three legends meet in the ring to kick off Wrestlemania - Wrestlemania XXX
When you have names like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan, and The Rock all in the ring at the same time, it’s sure to make an unforgettable moment. That’s what the fans got last year at WrestleMania XXX.
Up until this point, we’ve had 30 WrestleManias and the three men in the ring for this moment were a part of the main event in some form or fashion for half of them. They said on commentary that night, that the Mount Rushmore of wrestling came alive in the ring. For anyone watching, it was a big moment fit for the Grandest Stage of Them All.
