So which are the stories that find their place among the five best in 35 years of WrestleMania? Find out here.
Kane and Undertaker's intense feud ahead of WrestleMania XIV
Kane was introduced to the WWE as The Undertaker's brother in 1997, and since his first appearance, WWE knew he would become a huge draw. Kane and Undertaker entered an epic feud before WM as Kane wanted revenge from his older brother who had burned their family house down, killing their parents. The story was told meticulously, and the match became a huge attraction.
Hulk Hogan betrayed by Andre the Giant before WM III
Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant were friends, but as WM III was approaching, WWE wanted to give Andre a heel turn. This happened during one of Roddy Piper's talk show segments, Piper's Pit, when Andre directly challenged Hogan. Everyone played their roles to perfection, especially Andre's manager Bobby Heenan who was great at promos. The match became one of the most iconic ever.
Daniel Bryan wins against all odds at WM 30
Daniel Bryan, on his way to becoming WWE Champion, faced a lot of troubles at the stable called The Authority led by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. They even cheated him out of winning the WWE title and said he was a B+ superstar, never worthy of becoming WWE's face. However, at WrestleMania 30, Bryan defeated Randy Orton and Batista to prove them wrong.
Shawn Michaels puts Ric Flair's career to rest
Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels are the two greatest pro-wrestlers ever. Their WrestleMania story started when Vince McMahon told Flair that the next match he loses would be his last one. He did not lose a single match until his WM 24 bout against Michaels. The way these two legends fought and the very real tears from both at the end remains special.
The collapse of the Mega Powers
1988-1989 was the time when the iconic tag team comprising 'Macho Man' Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan started collapsing. It was because Savage thought Hogan was flirting with his wife, the beautiful Miss Elizabeth. The story was written well and acted out to perfection, culminating into a match which became one of the greatest ever.
