Greatest Wrestlemania Main Event EVER

For me it has got to be WM17 Austin v The Rock

Such a intense rivalry, such a gripping pre match promo, such a brutal match .. with an even more brutal ending

The rematch the following night on RAW was also the introduction to the 2 Man Power Trip !

VERY good times !

ALL TIME TOP 5
  • Stone Cold
  • HHH
  • Kane
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Randy Orton

CURRENT TOP 5
  • HHH
  • Randy Orton
  • Stephanie
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Seth Rollins

CURRENT WORST TOP 3

John Cena - The Usos - Dolph Ziggler

ATTITUDE ERA ENTHUSIAST

Re: Greatest Wrestlemania Main Event EVER

Well there is a saying,"to each his own."
As far as the greatest main event of WM goes,some of the following contenders can be:

1.Hogan vs Andre

2.Rock vs Austin(WM17)

3.Rock vs Hulk Hogan

4.Rock vs John Cena(in terms of financial success).


Out of all these great matches,my favourite is Hulkster vs Rocky,solely because of that roar of the crowd,which lasted throughout those 18 seconds.The crowd reaction is the one thing that makes that match the G.O.A.T in my opinion.


However,no denying Austin vs Rock was awesome with Austin 3:16 selling his soul to the devil himself.

THE ROCK: The biggest star and draw of pro-wrestling industry EVER.

1.Holds the record of drawing most major shows 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(again,a feat of inimitable drawing power that is unmatched by anyone in pro-wrestling history)

3.Drew the highest cable ratings during the AE.

4.Sold more merchandise than anyone active between mid 1999-2001.

Re: Greatest Wrestlemania Main Event EVER

The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels (Streak vs Career) : Wrestlemania XXVI





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

I would love to say it is Austin vs Rock @ WM 17 but there can't be any other answer except Hogan vs Andre


1.Hogan vs Andre
2.Austin vs Rock 2
3.Hogan vs Warrior

Then everything else

Re: Greatest Wrestlemania Main Event EVER

WM17 also proved that Austin was bigger than Rock.

During the match, Austin was continuously cheered while as The Rock was boo'ed.

Which made the ending even more so dramatic

Disagree heavily there, for one it was in Texas, so of course Austin would get the bigger pop, and secondly The Rock didnt just get booed, his reaction was mixed...

Re: Greatest Wrestlemania Main Event EVER

Hogan/Andre
Hogan/Warrior
Hogan/Savage
Rock/Austin (17)

In that order for me.

Hogan/Warrior was so great. Top 2 faces dividing the fans. No heel turn hints. Just a big time match that passed the torch even though the torch burned out quickly.

Re: Greatest Wrestlemania Main Event EVER

Best wrestled main event: (TIE) WM 12, WWF title - Hart vs. Michaels 60 mins.; WM 20, World title Triple threat
Runner-up: WM 26, Streak vs. Career - Taker vs. Michaels II

Most entertaining main event: (tie) WM 17, WWF title - Rock vs. Austin; WM 28 - Rock vs. Cena


WISH LIST

A new, 44th WWE Champion [x]
Daniel Bryan, SummerSlam 2013. Then Orton won it and the WWE was like

SmackDown moves to live Thursdays []
Cena is not in a title match nor a main event at WrestleMania []
Raw returns to two hours, instead of three []

Austin was more over than the Rock for sure. Texas or no Texas, Austin made Rock. Rock was the perfect antagonist for Austin at that time. Great rivalry.
