I still don't think out of 35 Wrestlemanias that every show, or most shows, had memorable moments. But I agree with your point
oh absolutely - i wasn't trying to say that I think every wrestlemania is full of memorable moments. i apologize if it came across that way.

i can think of a few wrestlemanias off the top of my head that didn't have anything memorable happen except it being memorable for being not so good lol

i think WWE has to stop pushing for this cause it's really lame. i don't want that notion shoved down my throat - it's like let me decide if the damn moment is memorable!

Re: Wrestlemania Moments?

The term WrestleMania moments, like many other things in WWE these days, has been overused and applied to situations that it doesn't fit. I think back to when Big Show beat Cody for the IC Title and they called that "A WrestleMania Moment".

The first time I remember hearing the term was when JR called Rock/Hogan's stare down at X-8 a "WrestleMania Moment". That felt organic and cool, but as with anything else, WWE took it, ran with it, overplayed it, and now it means very little.

When I think of real "WrestleMania Moments" I think of those things that will stick out in my memory, days, weeks, months, years, and decades after seeing the show. I'll always remember Warrior beating Hogan, or Hogan Slamming Andre, or Tyson counting the 3 for Austin, and things like that. But Beth Phoenix getting her moment in a 4 way tag for belts I don't care about? Not so much.

Last night, the only things I'd probably call WrestleMania moments were Kofi's victory and the unveiling of the real WWE Title belt to award to Kofi and the Miz/Shane Super-Duper Plex to hell. Maybe Becky's victory but the ending of the match left me so flat that it kind of soured it for me.

Exactly. I think Punk was the first one to do the sign pointing thing and it felt cool...until literally every single person on the roster with a spot on the card started doing it. Now it is just a bad, overplayed cliche that means nothing.

when you say pointing at the sign....do you mean like what rousey did last year when she debuted on raw?

love the way you worded that last sentiment "genuine wrestlemania moment" - not so sure i'm sold on the whole Kofi celebration though....yea it was cool I guess. but the Miz's father was ringside. so was triple H's father. kurt angles family. seems they have incorporated the families much more in recent times which for me takes away from the uniqueness of it.
