Default 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 !

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.

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

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...

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.

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.
