Default Re: Worst WM Main Event of all time

We're getting a range of responses based on how people are judging the Main Events on: Some are judging solely on match quality, some solely on the build-up, some on the crowd atmosphere, some on the result of the match, some a mix of all the above.

Having that said and knowing that each match is different to each individual and they're all opinions, it simply baffles me how certain matches like Rock vs Cena are even mentioned as one of the worst main events of all-time. Absolutely baffling no matter how I slice it.

Here's how I personally rate each one based on certain aspects (chronological order):

Worst Match-ups
* Hogan vs. Bundy - WM 2
* Hogan vs. Sid - WM VIII
* Bigelow vs. LT - WM XI
* Sid vs. 'Taker - WM 13
* Miz vs. Cena - WM XXVII

Worst Match quality
* Hogan vs Bundy - WM 2
* Hogan vs. Andre - WM III
* Hogan vs. Sid - WM VIII
* Sid vs. 'Taker - WM 13
* Miz vs. Cena - WM XXVII

Worst Atmosphere
* Sid vs. 'Taker - WM 13
* Jericho vs. HHH - WM X8
* HHH vs. Orton - WM XXV
* Miz vs. Cena - WM XXVII

Worst Result
* Bret/Hogan vs. Yokozuna - WM IX
* HHH vs. Rock vs. Foley vs. Show - WM 2000
* Miz vs. Cena - WM XXVII

I hear a bunch of reasons talking about the hype and how disappointed they were in the match between Rock vs. Cena but just because it didn't live up to the hype does not mean that it's a bad main event. I KNOW you're not basing it off match quality because that would mean you think such gems like Sid-Taker or Hulk-Andre are better. It's definitely not a dead crowd that's for sure and it's certainly not build-up either. You could list it as your most DISAPPOINTING WM main event ever, but I don't think labeling it as bar none, worst ever (or top 5 or heck, even top 10 ever) WM main event applies here. I just can't see it.


As for me, I'd say the worst WM Main Event overall are as follows:
1. Miz vs. Cena - WM XXVII
2. Sid vs. Undertaker - WM 13
3. Hogan vs. Bundy - WM 2
4. WrestleMania IX debacle
5. Bigelow vs. LT - WM XI

I wonder why nobody talks about BRET/YOKO at WMX. Seriously I think this is probably the worst WM match speaking about quality. And the ending was so stupid. Don't get me wrong I loved having Bret hart winning, but why this way? It should have been LUGER/BRET anyway.

My vote would be with WM 27 Cena/Miz. The atmosphere was dead and the crowd didn't seem to give two shits
Agreed. It made Orton Vs. Helmsley look like MOTY material!

If you think Bret/Yoko is the worst, you haven't seen enough WM's.

Cena/Miz.

And I don't blame Miz for it either...

Wrestlemania 9 was bizarre though. Yoko beats Bret Hart to win the title and then Hogan comes down and wins the title in 20 seconds. For like 15-20 minutes Hart tries everything to beat Yokozuna to no avail, and then magically Hogan wins because Yoko gets salt in the eyes? After successfully putting down all of Hart's technical offense...it's the salt that does him in?

Stupid.

I like the guy, but the two Wrestlemanias matches Sid main evented were up there with the worst. Of course, if it counts as the actual main event, Hogan vs Yokozuna is the worst of all time.

I tend to give Hogan/Bundy a pass for several reasons. Yes, I know Elvira on commentary was UNGODLY and yes, I know it wasn't the most exciting match up as it was basically just "Hogan Vs. Big Guy we All Know He is Going to Beat".

However, it was the first World Title match in Wrestlemania's history, and it was the first Steel Cage Match in Wrestlemania history (and to date, only if you exclude the two Hell in a Cells). That gives it its own little designation. It was also the first time the big blue bars were used, the justification being that Bundy needed the extra support to climb the cage. I always liked the big bars better. It looked more solid to me than a chain link fence with a lot of give. I dunno. And I didn't think the match was bad personally. It was typical Hogan in a lot of ways, but it was solidly entertaining.

Also, it wasn't the biggest match up they could have done, but to me, Wrestlemania was still in its infancy. There wasn't really a standard yet for a Wrestlemania quality main event. I've often said that Wrestlemania was born in 1985, but it came to life in 1987. Hogan Vs. Andre at III was the first one that really set the standard of "OK, THAT is a caliber main event attraction for the biggest show of the year". Before that though, they were just pretty much doing standard shows but showcased to a larger audience and with celebrity guests.

So in my mind, Hogan/Bundy kind of gets a pass on a lot of things, and I enjoyed it for what it was.

Hogan's worst Mania performance in my eyes was his match with Sid at VIII. That one would probably go down as the worst had it not been for the return of The Ultimate Warrior to really end the show with a huge bang.

That make the situation worse, Bret holding his eyes, pointing for Hogan to go get Yokozuna for him was the dumbest looking thing ever. Made Bret look like an even bigger pile of shit.

Please take a look at it. It's WM10 and the Main event lasts only 10 mins at most! and its almost all about punches, it's horrible. Look at the ending. is it supposed to be epic? I don't know if it's the worst WM main event ever but it should be considered in that list.
