Fade to black

Return with a shot of modern day Hogan standing in an empty arena.

Hulk Hogan:
My lasting memory from Wrestle Mania … Pontiac, Michigan … 90,000 people stood in awe, as Hulkamania ran wild, and body slammed Andre The Giant … that’s my ultimate Wrestle Mania moment … like a dream becoming a reality.

Cut to Triple H fixing his knee pads in a locker room.

Triple H:
Sky Dome, March 17 2002. My best moment from Wrestle Mania. I rehabbed for months from torn quads, for that moment. That main event … my dream became a reality.

Cut to Chris Benoit doing push ups in training.

Chris Benoit:
Chris Benoits greatest Wrestle Mania moment has yet to take place … but March 26th, Wrestle Mania Twenty Two, Chris Benoit dares to dream for a reality.

Cut to Shawn Michaels dropping onto his knees

Shawn Michaels:
Every time good ‘ol HBK steps into the ring, on that stage, our Superbowl, our World Series, I promise, and provide, a moment that is NEVER forgotten. I make my boyhood dream come true every year, I steal the show … I am the show.

Cut to Orton striking a destiny pose

Randy Orton:
Wrestle Mania Twenty didn’t go to plan … Wrestle Mania Twenty One didn’t go to plan … Third time lucky, dreams to become reality, at Wrestle Mania Twenty Two, when I kill that myth.

A shot of Shane McMahon stretching his arms

Shane McMahon:
My family built this. They made their dreams a reality. Now, I have the privilege to compete at a McMahon family creation.

Clips of John Cena slapping hands with fans

John Cena:
Just to be part of it is special. To main event is unreal. And to feature in another title match this year, as a champion, like so many greats before me. It’s the type of thing you can only dream of.

The first few notes of ‘Shed Some Light’ plays, and a number of classic Wrestle Mania moments are shown…

“I'm falling apart again”

Mr. T and Roddy Piper head to head

“And I can't find a way to make amends”

“And I'm looking in both directions”

“But it's make believe, it's all pretend”

Hulk Hogan dropping the leg on Vince McMahon.

We then cut to clips of Steve Austin, as the Ringmaster at WM 12, before clips of Austin at last years event.

Steve Austin:
Wrestle Mania is the defining moment for any wrestler on the planet. To even compete … is an honour. To main event, is a dream come true. Three titles, multiple main events, at this one event, Wrestle Mania is my legacy.

Shots of The Rock from Wrestle Mania 13, and then to last years Wrestle Mania becoming a ten time WWE Champion.

The Rock:
I’ve done it all in this business. I’ve made all my dreams come true. Tonight, I’m giving the fans a match they’ve dreamt of for a long time, on the biggest of stages.

Shots of Kurt Angle from Wrestle Mania 16, and then Wrestle Mania 21.

Kurt Angle:
I’ve competed under those lights. I’ve main evented with the world’s eyes on me … but tonight … tonight is my defining Wrestle Mania moment. I’m not the main event. But I AM the spectacle.

Clips of Christian with Edge at Wrestle Mania past in TLC, then last year, breaking out alone, beating Edge

They said I couldn’t break out. They said I couldn’t be a star. I’ve proved them all wrong. Love me or hate me … I’m the superstar of today, and my mission is to clear out the old, and I’m doing it at the biggest event of the year. At Wrestle Mania 22 … Christian … arrives.

Clips of Brock Lesnar winning the WWE Championship at his first ever WM, and last year, losing out to Steve Austin.

Brock Lesnar:
I’m the WWE Champion. I’m the WWE Iron Man. I’m the one who everyone wants to beat … but nobody can. Wrestle Mania brings out the best in everybody … but it brings out even more in me. Tonight, I etch my name into the history books at Wrestle Mania by becoming the most dominant WWE Champion of all time.

Shots of Bret Hart from Wrestle Mania 2, as a young upstart, with the shot slowly forming through the years, as Bret progressed, to the main events, ending with Bret clenching in the Sharpshooter on Austin at Wrestle Mania 13.

Bret Hart:
I’m proud to say that I helped build this event. I’m proud of my accomplishments, and all the things that I’ve done. But tonight, I could do one of two things. I could tarnish my legacy, and never get a chance to rebuild it … or I could put a finishing touch onto my career, and die a happy man.
