The Best of the Best At WrestleMania
For wrestling fans, WrestleMania is more than just your average monthly pay per view consisting of all of your favorite superstars. WrestleMania is the one night where an entire year of storylines and drama finally culminates and all loose ends are tied up. In just a little over a week, WrestleMania 29 will be our reality.
The headlining main event for WrestleMania 29 is The Rock defending the prestigious WWE Championship against the #1 contender John Cena. Many are stating that this may be the biggest and most important rematch in pro wrestling history. Yes, WrestleMania has had its fair share of historic rematches, but none as important as the meaning behind this bout. For Cena, this is his one shot at redemption from last year’s loss to The Rock at WrestleMania 28. This would be Cena's opportunity to solidify himself of being an all-time great. For The Rock, it's proving the doubters wrong. That he is anything but some "part time" world champion. It means that after many years of being away from the ring, he still has what it takes to show that he is called "The Great One" for a reason. This match is expected to be a classic.
WrestleMania's history has given fans some classic battles. What makes these matches so special are that they have been immortalized to eternally be fixated into our hearts and minds. When you wrestle on the grand stage, that would be the defining moment. No matter what, you will always remain a historic icon. This list encompasses 12 of the all-time greatest matches that we have seen on the biggest wrestling stage in the world. Enjoy the top 12 Greatest WrestleMania matches of all time.
