Mr. Tito's PHAT Wrestlemania Rankings
15. Wrestlemania 11
A very weak card her, as it shows that the WWF powerhouse was weakening. Lawrence Taylor beating Bam Bam Bigelo was pathetic, even though Lawrence Taylor put up a good show in the ring. Bret Hart defeating Bob Backlund in the "I Quit" match was good, but you saw Bret Hart winning it a mile away. Nice to see Owen finding Yokozuna to take the tag belts away from the Smokin' Gunns. Diesel vs. HBK was good, but I didn't like the ending with Sid interfering.
14. Wrestlemania 7
Good win for the Rockers vs. the future Faces of Fear. Nasty Boys beat the Hart Foundation..that sucked! Warrior vs. Savage was good, except for the 5 elbows from the top that the Warrior took, but still kicked out from. Hogan vs. Slaughter was a weak main event in my mind.
13. Wrestlemania 12
This one only had a few matches that I really enjoyed. I loves seeing Piper beat the living shit out of Goldust. I also enjoyed seeing the Warrior come back to defeat Triple H. Undertaker vs. Diesel was alright for a big man match, but it was a clean win! HBK vs. Bret in the "iron man" match was too long and boring in my mind. Bret did get screwed in that match in my mind. HBK should've put in the Sharpshooter to start the overtime.
12. Wrestlemania 13
Good, strong card for the WWF, even though their talent was weak. Sid vs. the Undertaker was a good title match, but having the Undertaker dress "oldschool" for the match made the winner way too predictable. Bret vs. Stone Cold was a great technical match, and bloody too! Ahmed Johnson/LOD vs. NOD was a battle! Every match was good on this card.
11. Wrestlemania 9
I loved the Headshrinkers vs. Steiners match up. I also enjoyed seeing Money Inc. win against Hogan and Beefcake by disqualification. I mark for Money Inc. Luger got lucky in his win against Hennig. Darn Giant Gonzalez making the Undertaker pass out with whatever chemical he put on the cloth was interesting. Hogan wins the WWF title, after the Hitman got screwed against Yokozuna. Odd finish. I didn't like the Outdoor effect on this one.
10. Wrestlemania 15
This one had strong matches with mid card wrestlers. Every match had some kind of excitement, except for the low point of the night, Undertaker vs. Bossman in the Hell in the Cell. The Triple H turn was the best! Nicole Bass's debut was great too. The main event, Stone Cold vs. Rock, although it was very easy to predict, was the match of the night. Exciting match there.
9. Wrestlemania 6
The final main event, Hogan vs. Warrior, helped save this card. The undercard was alright, but nothing impressive. Hogan vs. the Ultimate Warrior, in my mind, is one of the greatest matches in the history of wrestling. I say this is the best showing by both of these men, and it was reported that Warrior and Hogan rehearsed this match for 3 months in advance. It shows, and that match, not their recent Halloween Havoc match, needs praised.
8. Wrestlemania 10
Only a few good matches in this one. Owen bs. Bret was great, as Owen defeated Bret. Poor Flexy Lexy couldn't defeat Yokozuna for the title, but Bret Hart later beat Yokozuna in a good match. The match of the night however, was HBK vs. Razor in a spectacular ladder match. Damn, what a match that was!!
7. Wrestlemania 4
It was all tournament, with a few other matches. Classic tournament win by Macho. Great tag match with Demolishion defeating Strike Force for the titles. How on earth can Heenan and the Islander defeat the British Bulldogs and Koko B. Ware? Koko sucks, that's how! The battle royal was great too, with Bad News Brown winning it, only to be attacked by Bret Hart.
6. Wrestlemania 14
Good Wrestlemania, which was the beginning of the great WWF run. The tag team battle royal was great! I liked the Aguila vs. Taka Michinoku match. My favorite match was the Cactus Jack/Chainsaw Charlie vs. New Age Outlaws dumpster match. Gotta love the Rock vs. Shamrock, as Shamrock snaps at the end. The main event was exciting, and I thought HBK hid his back problem good. Very nice hook by Tyson on HBK at the end. HA.
5. Wrestlemania 5
Classic tag battle between Demolishion and the Powers of Pain. The Brainbusters(Blanchard and Anderson) in the WWF..gotta love it! Red Rooster crushing Bobby Heenan was funny. The match of the night was Warrior vs. Ravishing Rick Rude. Classic screwjob there. Hogan defeating Macho was a good match, despite the hardest Savage elbow that I have ever seen.
4. Wrestlemania 2
The 3 city theme was interesting, and it had some classic matches. My favorite match was the Macho Man vs. George the Animal Steele match. The final cage match was good two, pitting Hogan vs. King Kong Bundy with both of them bleeding. The 20 man battle royal was fun to watch, especially the end when Andre eliminated the Hart Foundation to win it. Super tag team match with the Bulldogs defeating the Dream Team. Wow, Terry Funk and Dory Funk Jr. fought Tito Santana and the Junkyard Dog.
3. Wrestlemania 1
The first Wrestlemania layed the groundwork for many great Wrestlemanias to come. The main event will always be the most chaotic match, since it seemed that Piper and Mr. T wanted to kill each other. Andre the Giant vs. Big John Studd was a classic too. I was upset when the classic duo of Mike Rotundo and Barry Windham lost the titles. Mean Gene needs to work on his singing of the National Anthem.
2. Wrestlemania 8
Good singles win for HBK defeating Tito Santana. Midcard was alright, but the main event matches were very strong. WWF really had the superstars for this event. Matches like Undertaker vs. Jake "the Snake" Roberts, Bret Hart vs. Roddy Piper, Flair vs. Savage, and Hogan vs. Sid helped make this Wrestlemania a great one.
IN MY OPINION....the best Wrestlemania is.....
1. Wrestlemania 3
This the Wrestlemania that put the WWF on the map. The crowd for this event was spectacular. Piper's final match, then, was good and it marked the beginning of Brutus "the Barber" Beefcake. Steamboat vs. Savage was the match of the night, and one of the best WWF matches ever. So many attempted pins in that one. The Andre vs. Hogan match was the biggie in this one, as it gave the WWF their strong fan base. Good, solid, all around card.
IN CONCLUSION: I must say, that watching these Wrestlemanias again was so much fun to do. I will say, that I enjoyed them all. You may notice that I critisized many parts of some, but that is what this segment was for; to rank the Wrestlemanias, IN MY OPINION, from first to last, therefore, I had to critisize. I think that the Wrestlemania series, easily, puts on the best wrestling show around. I hope you have enjoyed this segment, as I have enjoyed creating this segment. Thanks for reading.
