-The biggest match of all time is/was/will always be Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant at WM 3.
As a fan,one would like to witness an unstoppable monster like Brock face the guy that has beaten Austin,Hogan and Cena clean at Mania.
Speaking more specifically,we Rock fans are waiting since 2002 when the Rock passed the torch to Brock,to get his win back.No better place to do this match than at WrestleMania.
Brock is the biggest UFC draw,Rock is the biggest wrestling draw.That match will attract hardcore wrestling fans,UFC fans and hopefully some Hollywood fans as well.Hence it will draw big,no two ways about it.
Andre vs Hogan was definitely one of the biggest Mania matches,yes perhaps the biggest,not arguing with you.But the crowd reaction that Hogan vs Rock got was unbelievable.The crowd reaction for that match makes that match, for me personally, the biggest WM match of all time.The crowd was so loud,and there was such an uproar that it gave that match a majestic feeling.
In terms of financial success last WM was the biggest of all time,so one can argue,not based upon quality of the feud,but based upon this financial success that Rock vs John Cena was the biggest match of all time.
Anyways,back to the topic.I would love to see the Texas Rattlesnake back in action,going 1-on-1 againt The best in the world.I think this match will take place next year.
Now,whether Austin will mainevent over Rock and Taker is a totally different subject altogether.About which talking right now would be pre-mature.
: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.
1. Holds the record of drawing most arenas with 10,000+ attendance on top in one calendar year. [Broke Hogan's(1986) and Austin's(1998) record in 1999 and set a record of headlining over 100 shows with 10,000 plus people in attendance in year 2000. A box-office drawing record that is unsurpassed till date.]
2. Holds the record of main-eventing almost 17 PPVs that have got over 500k buys
. Over 80% of the PPVs he main-evented drew over 400k buys
. As a PPV headliner no one is even close.
3. Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE(real quartely segments not over-run). Took ratings to heights never before seen in 2000.
4. Sold more merchandise than anyone active(Austin
) between mid 1999-2001.
