Wrestle-Mania Rewatch Thread

Post by Iamspiderman » Wed Feb 20, 2019 2:23 pm

So with me attending my very first ever Wrestle-Mania in April, I thought I'd go back and watch ever Mania ever leading up to it!

I've never seen Wrestle-Mania 1-13 either so those should be interesting.

My Wrestle-Mania Rankings:

X-7
XX
2000
XIX
X-8
XV
XIV
21
XII
X
22
23
13
VI
V
VIII
VII
III
IV
IX
XI
II
I

Initial thoughts:

Mania 1 is only 2 hours and 16 minutes long!? Wow.

45 minutes in and 1 squash and 1 no contest. woof.

Nothing really special match wise yet, but I figured as much: On JYD Vs. Valentine now.

Crowd erupted for Bruno though, hot damn.

They edited it. The crowd erupted like you see but then it was announced that the title doesn't change hands and they turned really really bad which you don't see anymore.

On WM4 now so let me just say these are pretty rough to get through. I respect what they meant for their time but they are not great lol.

They have gotten better with each show but still have a lot wrong with them. Midgets?! C’mon now.

That Mania 1 main event was sloppy as hell. Not great at all.

Hogan/Bundy is still the only cage match 8n WM history right? I don’t include HIAC matches in that.

Man no one got time back then, such a shame.

Steamboat\Savage at 3 is the only match I can say I truly enjoyed so far. A bunch had potential but ended in 6 minutes or ending w a DQ/Screwy ending.

Some other thoughts:

Never really got to hear Ventura\Monsoon this much and they were as great as I’ve heard they would be.
Feel like I missed out on a lot of Piper greatness and of all people, JYD really clicked with me lol

If you like JYD, check out Mid-South. JYD got suspended so his pal Stagger Lee took his place. He's basically JYD to the extreme.

On WM VI now.

While I enjoyed the one night theme for Mania 4, felt like it def. could've been 8 people instead of 16 here esp w all the DQs and BYEs thrown in there.

Hogan/Savage at Mania V has been the best Mania Main event to this point in my opinion.

And that Pipers Pit with Brother Love was god awful. Long, unfunny and just an overall dud for me.
