Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

isn't that the card where 40% of the wrestlers are now dead or something?

[edit] Not quite, just one of the venues

WWF WrestleMania 2 4/10 40.00%
WWF WrestleMania X 7/20 35.00%
WWF SummerSlam '90 9/26 34.62%
I-Generation Rodman Down Under 4/12 33.33%
WWF SummerSlam '88 9/28 32.14%
WCW The Great American Bash '92 5/16 31.25%
WWF WrestleMania VI 11/36 30.56%
WWF In Your House 6: Rage In The Cage 3/10 30.00%
WWF WrestleMania VII 10/36 27.78%
WWF The Wrestling Classic 5/18 27.78%

Wrestlemania, - Wrestlings biggest killer.

Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

New York

Savage vs. The Animal was pretty good, but nothing special. Savage deserved a much better opponent for a show this big.
Mr. T vs. Piper was okay, mostly thanks to Piper sellng it like a champ.
The other matches blew.

Chicago

Bulldogs/Dynamite vs. Dream Team was a great tag match.
Battle Royal was okay, but the rest was forgettable.

Los Angeles

Steamboat vs. Hernandez and The Funks vs. Tito/JYD were both okay matches.
Hogan/Bundy in a cage bored me to tears.


Had this been one card, still wouldn't rank it any higher than 5/10. Horrible followup to the first one.

Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

Running Wrestlemania from 3 different venues was an experiment. I very aggressive and risky one at that. I wouldn't all it a failure, but I wouldn't call it a success because they needed to have Vince Mcmahon in every venue.

Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

I think it would be interesting to see the opinions of the card/show in relation to age of those replying. If you started watching WWF in the 90's, like during the Attitude Era, and saw Wrestlemania 2 on tape, yeah, you're probably not going to like it.

Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

You might have a point. I was quite young when WM 2 happened. I probably saw it on VHS around '90 or '91. Didn't see my first WM as it happened until 7, although I stand by the opinion that 7 was much better than 2.

Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

Opinions vary. Bulldogs were one of the best tag teams of the era.

Re: WWF WrestleMania 2

Of course. And Bulldogs were great. But, the Funks match tops the work in the Bulldogs vs Dream Team bout and then some.

Underrated gold.

Shit Wrestlemania tbh. T and Piper is the one thing that has withstood the test if time and even that was awful.
