The often forgotten Wrestlemania! Most often remembered for being the experimental Wrestlemania as it took place from three different venues:
April 7, 1986
Uniondale, New York
Los Angeles, California
Ray Charles sang America The Beautiful.
"Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorf Vs. "The Magnificent" Muraco
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP: "Macho Man" Randy Savage Vs. George "The Animal" Steele
Jake "The Snake" Roberts Vs. George Wells
BOXING MATCH: Mr. T. Vs. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper
WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP: The Fabulous Moolah Vs. Velvet McIntyre
FLAG MATCH: Corporal Kirchner Vs. Nikolai Volkoff
20-man Battle Royal
TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The British Bulldogs Vs. The Dream Team (Valentine/Beefcake)
Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat" Vs. Hercules Hernandez
Adrian Adonis Vs. Uncle Elmer
Terry Funk & Dory Funk, Jr. Vs. The Junkyard Dog & Tito Santana
WWF CHAMPIONSHIP (CAGE MATCH): Hulk Hogan Vs. King Kong Bundy
Admittedly, a lot of it nowadays is nostalgia but I love this Wrestlemania & think it is underrated. I remember I used to rent the VHS of this all the time. Pretty sure Hogan/Bundy was the first cage match that I ever saw. I also used to have a huge crush on Elvira and she was on commentary at one of the locations (and admittedly terrible at it). The Boxing match is pretty memorable as Piper is just that good.
Random Trivial Pursuit Info: The only Wrestlemania to ever be held on a Monday. Also was the first Wrestlemania to be shown on Pay-Per-View.
So, curious what memories you have of this event. If you're a fan or not. Where does it rank in terms of the other Wrestlemania shows in your mind?
