Five myths about WrestleMania which many believe to be trueLast updated on Feb 21, 2019, 07:04 pm
WrestleMania is known as the Showcase of the Immortals and it is here that icons are created, and history is scripted which lasts across generations.
However, WrestleMania being such a huge event, there are bound to be stories which get etched into its legend and keep spreading among fans.
However, not all such stories are true, and here are five such WrestleMania myths.
Hulk Hogan's black eye at WrestleMania IX
This story has been carved into WrestleMania folklore, and is about Hogan sporting a black eye during his WM match that got everybody talking.
The rumor was that the Hulkster had been attacked by Randy Savage before his WM IX match and that is how Hogan ended up with a sore eye.
Hogan later revealed that it was the result of a jet-ski accident.
King Kong Bundy was to end The Undertaker's streak
Undertaker's WrestleMania streak is as popular as the man himself, and legend says that King Kong Bundy was the one who was about to end the streak.
However, this story isn't true, as Bundy was hardly as popular then and could not be given the honor.
Moreover, there was not much of a streak yet, as Undertaker had only three WM wins by then.
WrestleMania III's historic attendance figure
WWE has been criticized several times for providing inaccurate attendance figures.
Most of the attendance figures that they announce on Raw and SmackDown and even at WrestleMania have been deemed to be fake.
Their most famous attendance record of 93,173 at WM III to watch Hulk Hogan vs Andre The Giant is cherished by many WWE fans, but unfortunately, that too is fake.
Shawn Michaels did not want to drop the title
It was at WrestleMania XIV when Shawn Michaels was to face Stone Cold to defend his WWE Championship.
However, rumors went that Michaels refused to drop his title but did so after The Undertaker threatened him.
Later Michaels said he was doing it to keep all of WWE on their toes while he did want to drop the title and put Austin over.
Hogan was not the first to body-slam Andre the Giant
Andre the Giant vs Hulk Hogan encounter at WrestleMania 3 always ranks among the greatest moments ever.
Hogan defeated the French giant by body slamming him on the canvas and counting him out by pinfall. It was propagated that Andre has been body slammed for the first time.
This is false as he had been body slammed by Kamala and others, numerous times before.
