Ranking the Wrestlemanias

WrestleMania | Logopedia | Fandom

In honor of the only major “sporting” event going on this weekend, I have produced a list of the best wrestlemanias including my notes about the main events, best matches, and memorable milestones.  I am not a huge wrestling fan by any means but I have had enough phases through the years where I feel like I can produce a decent ranking.  Enjoy and feel free to comment or debate.

Greatest Wrestlemanias
Notes:
1 Wrestlemania III (1987) Hogan vs. Giant in main event; Savage vs. Steamboat was legendary match
2 Wrestlemania XIV (1998) Stone Cold beats Shawn Michaels
3 Wrestlemania VI (1990) Hogan vs. Warrion in one of the great title matches ever
4 Wrestlemania XVII (2001) Stone cold vs rock rematch and loaded card with tons of stars
5 Wrestlemania X (1994) first-ever ladder match in WWE history
