BRET HART VS YOKOZUNA (WRESTLEMANIA 10)
After winning the 1993 edition of the Royal Rumble, the unstoppable Yokozuna looked to WWE champion Bret Hart at Wrestlemania 9. In the match, while Hart applied his Sharpshooter to Yokozuna, his manager Mr.Fuji threw a The eyes, which exorbitated it and allowed Yokozuna to take the victory and the WWE Championship. The situation gave rise to an improvised contest for the championship between Hulk Hogan and the new champion, where Hogan ended up taking the title. A year later, at Madison Square Garden, Hart had his rematch in a match where Roddy Piper was a special referee, and won the WWE Championship.
EDGE AND CHRISTIAN VS HARDY BOYZ VS DUDLEY BOYZ (WRESTLEMANIA 17)
When you think of tag teams that have revolutionized division, these 3 teams always come to mind. Edge, Christian, Matt, Jeff, Bubba and D-Von were given two bouts that became classics at WrestleMania 16 and 17. In the 16th edition in 2000, they met in a Triangle Ladder Match where Edge and Christian took the championships. A year later, in WrestleMania 17, these 3 teams returned to face in a TLC Match, a stipulation that the 6 had introduced months before in SummerSlam. Also in this match we saw interventions, those of Spike Dudley who went to help the Dudleyz, Lita who helped the Hardyz and Rhyno that finally helped an exhausted Christian to take the titles and give victory to his team for the second consecutive year.
THE ROCK VS STONE COLD (WRESTLEMANIA 19)
In 2003, Stone Cold and The Rock had previously faced 2 times in this event by the WWE Title (WrestleMania 15 and 17). After a time out, The Rock returned to WWE to end the fact that they never defeated Stone Cold at WrestleMania. And after weeks of attacks and mental games (including his first “Rock’s Concert”), The Great One had its chance of rematch on March 30, 2003 at Safeco Field in Seattle. Even though there was no championship at stake, the expectations were huge. The match came to an end after The Rock applied 3 Rock Bottoms in a row to Austin, taking the victory and the long awaited rematch. This was Austin’s last bout in WWE, and even though he lost, he left with all ovation and with his head held high.
SHAWN MICHALES VS UNDERTAKER (WRESTLEMANIA 26)
No superstar personified more the WrestleMania show as Undertaker with its legendary streak. In WrestleMania 25, he faced Shawn Michaels, and in the 26th edition, the time came for the rematch, where this time in addition to his streak, Michaels’ legendary career was at stake. At first, Taker refused to have this match, but weeks before, in an Elimination Chamber Match, Michaels interfered and cost the Phenom his World Heavyweight Championship. After Michaels survived 2 Tombstone Piledriver, he could not get past the third. Undertaker increased his streak to 18-0, and closed the curtain of the career of one of the most beloved superstars of all time.
TRIPLE H VS UNDERTAKER (WRESTLEMANIA 28)
They had already met in two previous editions (17 and 27), but this time the match was in a Hell in a Cell, with the great Shawn Michaels as special referee, and also under the title of “End of an Era”. At first Triple H refused to fight, but when Taker questioned him, he finally agreed. The combat was brutal, full of great emotions, even Michaels intervened sometimes. After a Tombstone Piledriver, Undertaker raised his streak to 20-0. The final image of the 3 embraces will forever be engraved in the memory of the fans of Wrestling.
