WrestleMania is the biggest professional wrestling extravaganza and has held that moniker since its inception in 1985. It has grown in size and popularity over the last 33 years and is a worldwide spectacle. There have been countless WrestleMania moments that have been deemed priceless. Hulk Hogan slamming Andre The Giant at WrestleMania III, Shawn Michaels winning his first WWE Championship at WrestleMania XII, or Brock Lesnar breaking The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania XXX.

These moments don’t necessarily always emerge from the best match of the night. Andre getting body slammed will always live in infamy but what about Steamboat versus Savage? Lesnar beating Taker was monumental but was it better than either one of Daniel Bryan’s matches?

These questions and more will be answered. We have watched every WrestleMania, thanks to the WWE Network, and come up with the greatest match from each one. Keep in mind there are spoilers in this article but if you do not know the outcome of some of the best Mania matches by now, are you really a fan? This is Sports Al Dente’s best match from each WrestleMania.

WrestleMania I

Hulk Hogan & Mr. T vs. Paul Orndorff & Roddy Piper

The first WrestleMania main event was a tag match that featured WWE(F) Champion Hulk Hogan teaming with Mr. T to square off against “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff. The Hollywood addition of Mr. T was just the beginning. Muhammad Ali was the guest referee outside of the ring, Liberace was the guest timekeeper, and New York Yankees manager Billy Martin was the guest ring announcer.

Through all of the fanfare, the match itself was actually pretty entertaining. Hogan carried his team while Piper and Orndorff both contributed as well as expected. There were moments of mayhem while all four men were in the ring at once and moments Ali got involved to keep the ringside clear of any interference. The crowd was eating it up.

“Cowboy” Bob Orton, who was ringside, came off of the top rope with the intention of hitting Hogan but missed and hit Orndorff instead. This allowed Hogan to get the 1, 2, 3.

WrestleMania II

The British Bulldogs vs. The Dream Team

Davey Boy Smith and Dynamite Kid formed one of the most athletic tag teams in professional wrestling history. They faced the team of Brutus Beefcake and Greg “The Hammer” Valentine for the WWE Tag Team Championships at the second WrestleMania.

The art of tag team wrestling was on display from both squads in this mid-card matchup. The lightning-quick attack of Dynamite, the sheer strength of Davey Boy, and the colorful characters of Valentine and Beefcake kept the fans intrigued throughout the battle.

The Bulldogs won their only Tag Team Championships that night when Valentine stopped his own cover after a Shoulder Breaker. Smith then ran Valentine into the corner where he butted heads with Dynamite. Smith covered Valentine for the win and new champions were crowned.

WrestleMania III

Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage

The Dragon and Macho Man went toe to toe for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania III. The match was electric from start to finish with countless near falls and back and forth action.

The commentary team of Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse Ventura really played up how resilient Steamboat was but Ventura was clearly on Savage’s side. Pointing out every single “trick” Ricky pulled while simultaneously justifying every dirty move Randy took. The timing and chemistry between these two stars were unmatched that night.

In the end, Savage had a three count after hitting his patented Flying Elbow but referee Dave Hebner was knocked out. He then attempted to use the ring bell but was halted by George “The Animal” Steele. Steamboat countered a body slam attempt into a roll-up pin for the victory for what ended up being his only championship reign in his WWE tenure.

WrestleMania IV

Randy Savage vs. Ted DiBiase

WrestleMania IV was mostly dedicated to the tournament for the vacant WWE Championship. Ted DiBiase and Randy Savage met in the finals to determine the new champion. Whoever won the match would earn their very first WWE Championship reign.

DiBiase was slated to have the advantage as he received a bye in the semi-finals due to Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant both being disqualified in their matchup. On the other hand, Savage had three grueling matches to get to the finals.

DiBiase had Andre at ringside to ensure a victory but Miss Elizabeth countered that by going to the back and bringing out Hogan to even the sides up. Hogan would eventually hit The Million Dollar Man in the back with a chair while he was applying The Million Dollar Dream. The referee was reprimanding Andre during Hogan’s interference.

Savage used the opportunity to hit his Flying Elbow and earn his first WWE Championship. Savage would hold the championship for an entire year until the next year’s WrestleMania where he makes his third straight appearance on this list.

WrestleMania V

Hulk Hogan vs. Randy Savage

Randy Savage kept the WWE Championship around his waist for 371 days after his victory at WrestleMania IV. Throughout the year he became more and more paranoid and in the main event at WrestleMania V, he faced off against the man who helped him win the championship the year prior.

Savage and Hogan’s rivalry was centered around Miss Elizabeth and she was ringside for most of the bout. Referee Earl Hebner made her leave when she was becoming too much of a distraction for both competitors.

“The Macho Man” stayed in control for the majority of the contest even busting Hogan open. Hogan eventually ‘Hulked Up” the only way he knows how. Hogan hits The Big Boot and the Leg Drop to win his second WWE Championship. Savage and Hogan’s rivalry and the story behind it was one of the best in all of wrestling.

WrestleMania VI

Ultimate Warrior vs. Hulk Hogan

The Ultimate Challenge between the two biggest superstars in the company at the time went down at WrestleMania VI. The WWE Champion Hulk Hogan had to defend against the Intercontinental Champion Ultimate Warrior. These two were at the top of the hierarchy at the time and only one man could walk out as champion.

Hogan versus Warrior is a rare Hogan match that can actually keep my attention. It was a true testament to the will of both men to prove they are the best that the company had to offer. It was the encapsulation of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.

Warrior would endure Hulk’s patented boot and then move out of the way from his Leg Drop. He immediately hit his Ultimate Splash and pinned Hogan for the win and his one and only WWE Championship.

WrestleMania VII

Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage

A career would end at the conclusion of this one as the loser would be forced to retire. The feel throughout the entire match was The Ultimate Warrior was on his way out. He calmly walked to the ring rather than his normal sprint. On the other hand, Miss Elizabeth appeared in the audience which led you to believe this was Savage’s final match.

Warrior kicked out of five flying elbows from Randy and Savage kicked out of Warrior’s splash which led to him almost walking out on the match due to him believing he was powerless. Warrior eventually fought off Savage’s attack and pinned Savage.

Sensational Sherri then began to berate Savage in the ring which led to her kicking and assaulting him. Elizabeth would make her way to the ring and stop Sherri. This led to the highly emotional reunion of Savage and Elizabeth. For the time being, The Macho Man’s in-ring career had come to an end.

WrestleMania VIII

Bret Hart vs. Roddy Piper

Roddy Piper defended his Intercontinental Championship against Bret Hart at the 1992 event. While the two competitors showed mutual respect for each other, the match got pretty intense. Both men tried underhanded strategies to get the upper hand on the other. Bret faked a shoulder injury while Roddy came within inches of hitting his challenger with the ring bell before deciding not to.

Roddy planted the Sleeper Hold on The Hitman but Bret countered by lifting his feet to the top turnbuckle and pushing off. The Excellence of Execution used the momentum to pin Roddy down and earn his second IC Championship. Piper placed the belt around Hart’s waist and the two combatants embraced before leaving the ring together.

This match was a great showing of two professional wrestling studs and felt like a bit of a ‘passing of the torch’ moment. This was the period of time when Bret’s singles career was really starting to gain traction and a big-time win over an established star like Piper only propelled his ascent. Hart would win his first WWE Championship a few months later.

WrestleMania IX

Tatanka vs. Shawn Michaels

The first match of the night wound up being the best. There were a lot of elements that makes this match the highlight of the ninth installation of WrestleMania. Tatanka entered undefeated and was very popular amongst the WWE Universe, Michaels was a great heel who sold like nobody else could, and it was the first WWE match ever called by the legendary Jim Ross (JR).

Throughout the match, there was a sense that either man could walk away from this victorious. Tatanka was undefeated and putting the Intercontinental Championship would have made a lot of sense. On the other end of the spectrum, Michaels was doing a great job with the title.

In the end, Michaels was counted out which gave Tatanka the victory but not the championship. Not the best way to end it but regardless of how it ended, the performance put on inside the ring set the bar and wasn’t reached the rest of the night.

WrestleMania X

Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels

This was a difficult decision. Owen Hart versus Bret Hart or Razor Ramon versus Shawn Michaels? While the Hart Brothers contest may have been more technically sound, the innovation and stipulations surrounding the ladder match helped my decision making here.

Ramon and Michaels partook in the first highly publicized ladder match in WWE history. Both men had legitimate claims to the Intercontinental Championship and the winner would earn the right to be the undisputed champ. This contest laid the groundwork for future generations to take this type of match to the highest of highs.

Razor and Shawn took their games to the next level with multiple high-risk spots. There were so many ‘Oh My God’ moments in this one. Michaels jumping off the top of the ladder onto Razor, Razor using the ladder as a battering ram on Shawn, and of course The Bad guy climbing the ladder while The Heartbreak Kid was tied up in the ropes to grab the two IC belts hanging above the ring.

WrestleMania XI

Owen Hart & Yokozuna vs. The Smoking Gunns

A young Bart and Billy Gunn, sporting some fresh mullets, defended their Tag Team Championships against Owen Hart and the returning Yokozuna. The double team maneuvers put on display by the Gunns were impressive, to say the least. The tandem of power and speed put together by Yoko and Owen made them a formidable and dangerous team.

The chemistry between these four men was a bit surprising but it was a pleasant surprise. You could tell that Yokozuna was not in the best ring shape but being paired with Owen made up for that in a big way. Yokozuna hit his Banzai Drop on Billy and even after tagging in Owen, proved to be enough to get the win. This was Owens first taste of championship gold in the WWE but of course was not his last.

WrestleMania XII

Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart

The Heartbreak Kid, The Excellence of Execution, and 60 plus minutes of 5-star action. WrestleMania XII was the culmination of years of pent up hostility between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. While the two were the best at what they did, their styles both in the ring and in life could not have been farther apart.

During their Iron Man Match, neither superstar was able to gain a victory over the other so after the 60 minutes were up, Gorilla Monsoon ordered the match continue to crown a true victor. It didn’t take long for HBK to hit two consecutive Sweet Chin Musics and cover Hart for his first WWE Championship.

For two guys to keep a crowd interested for an entire hour and then extra time goes to show just how special these two were. My only wish was that they could have put aside their personal differences to give the WWE Universe more one-on-one matches.

WrestleMania XIII

Bret Hart vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin

The infamous double turn where Austin would go from heel to face and Hart would go from face to heel in the same match. There were no championships to be decided but this was one of the most anticipated matches of the entire night.

The Rattlesnake had been rolling and getting hotter and hotter with the WWE Universe. Before he had even won a championship, Austin was arguably the most popular name on the roster. The encounter between Austin and Hart ended when guest referee Ken Shamrock called the match after Stone Cold passed out from the Sharpshooter.

One of the most iconic images in all of WWE came out of this match. A bloodied Austin screaming in pain while he dons a crimson mask is etched in the brains of an entire generation of wrestling fans.

WrestleMania XIV

The Undertaker vs. Kane

Had Shawn Michaels been 100%, this choice would have been different but history would not be so. The first one-on-one war between Kane and Undertaker took place in Boston at WrestleMania XIV. Never before had two 6’10 superstars put on a clinic the likes of this.

The Undertaker launched himself from the ring and Kane sidestepped him and slammed him through an announce table. Kane took Undertaker to the wire in a way no other has ever done. Then Kane sustained three tombstones and still almost kicked out.

The backstory of Kane and Undertaker is the greatest piece of storytelling ever by WWE. This was the first in-ring confrontation between the two tortured souls and it set the standard for a Kane versus Undertaker match.

WrestleMania XV

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Rock

There hadn’t been a match with two hotter superstars since Hogan and Warrior. The Rock versus Stone Cold is arguably the best rivalry in WWE history. They had feuded over the Intercontinental Championship about a year before their first WrestleMania showdown but this match raised it to a whole other level.

In November of 1998, both Austin and Rocky were getting unreal pops whenever their music hit. They were both seemingly on Mr. McMahon’s bad side until The Rock made a deal with the devil and became the Corporate Champion with McMahon’s endorsement.

Austin and Rock headlined Mania, the first of three they headlined and put on a show for the WWE Universe. Austin would hit The Rock with his Stunner (Rock was always the best at selling it) and won his third WWE Championship in only a year.

WrestleMania 2000 (XVI)

Edge & Christian vs. Dudley Boyz vs. Hardy Boyz

What can be said about this match that hasn’t been said already? These three teams were responsible for rejuvenating tag team wrestling in the late 1990s and early 2000s. They all took part in a ladder match for the Tag Team Championships.

The groundwork I mentioned earlier from the Ramon/Michaels match was taken and these teams built a three-story mansion on top of it. There were high flying spots, guys going through tables, and eventually, we had winners.

The most memorable moment was Jeff Hardy delivering a Swenton Bomb off the top of a 20-foot ladder onto Bubba Ray Dudley while Bubba laid on a table. Edge and Christian would emerge victoriously and these three teams would be forever linked and it all started with this match.

WrestleMania XVII

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Rock

The second WrestleMania conflict between Austin and The Rock came to a head at WrestleMania XVII. Once again their battle was focused on the WWE Championship. This match changed the course of history as Austin would turn his back on the WWE Universe and make a heel turn for the first time since WrestleMania XIII.

He joined forces with Mr. McMahon who had been his bitter enemy for the previous three years. Austin won the championship from The Great One again. The Rock and Austin would headline Mania for an unprecedented third time at WrestleMania XIX. Their ability to captivate the audience was unmatched and something we may never see again.

WrestleMania XVIII

The Rock vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan

In Hulk Hogan’s first WrestleMania since WrestleMania IX, the entire WWE Universe was treated to a one-on-one match that many never imagined would happen. The Rock and Hollywood Hogan squared off in one of the most iconic matches in wrestling history.

The audience was mixed between who they were cheering for, to say the least. The older generation of fans was solidly behind Hogan and the younger fans were rooting on Rocky. The Hogan fans were louder and more noticeable but you could hear The Rock backers as well, just a little more faintly.

The best part of the night was Hogan kicking out of a Rock Bottom and starting to ‘Hulk Up’ The fans went crazy! Hogan hit Rock with a succession of punches, the Big Boot, and then his Leg Drop but The Rock kicked out. After two more Rock Bottoms and a People’s Elbow, The Rock covered Hogan for the three count.

Afterward, the NWO came out and began attacking Hogan to which The Rock responded by helping Hogan and the two walked out of the ring together.

WrestleMania XIX

Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho

The Heartbreak Kid’s absence from WWE is well documented but at WrestleMania XIX he made his return to Mania, his first since WrestleMania XIV. Chris Jericho served as his welcoming committee. The rivalry between these two heading into the contest was wrapped up in hatred and disgust.

Michaels would reach the ropes on a couple of occasions to break Y2J’s Walls Of Jericho and then Jericho walked right into a Sweet Chin Music after pleading with the referee that HBK tapped, which he clearly didn’t. Jericho would kick out of the super-kick but Michaels would counter a backdrop attempt into a roll-up pin for the three.

Shawn extended his hand to Jericho in a show of respect to which Jericho responded with a hug. Then a nasty kick below the belt before exiting the ring leaving Michaels writhing in pain.

WrestleMania XX

Chris Benoit vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H

Before we all get in an uproar about Chris Benoit being mentioned on this list, we all know the terrible tragedy surrounding Benoit. We all know what he did but for the purposes of this list, he is going to be talked about so I am sorry if I offend anyone.

Triple H defended his World Heavyweight Championship against Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit. Throughout the match, none of the three could gain a large advantage on the other two. Hunter and Shawn each got busted open and Benoit was sent through an announce table.

By the end, they were all exhausted. Benoit had Triple H in a sharpshooter and it looked as if Trips was going to tap but Michaels nailed The Rabid Wolverine with a Sweet Chin Music to break the hold. After kicking out, Benoit ducked another super-kick and sent Michaels flying out of the ring. With Michaels out of the equation, Triple H went for a Pedigree but Benoit countered it into a Crippler Crossface and eventually forced the defending champion to tap out.

WrestleMania XXI

Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels

Two of the greatest in-ring competitors to ever step through the ropes faced each other at WrestleMania XXI. Kurt Angle and Shawn Michaels competed in a match for pride and to see who the better man was.

After a technically sound back and forth the match eventually spilled to the outside of the ring where some dirty tactics were used. Then some more ground wrestling and finally the finishers. Angle would hit an Angle Slam but couldn’t keep HBK down. Michaels hit his Sweet Chin Music but Angle kicked out. Angle delivered an Angle Slam from the top rope but then missed a moonsault from the top turnbuckle.

Angle would lock in his Ankle Lock and after what felt like an eternity, Michaels tapped out. The audience let their idols know how much their efforts were appreciated as both men received a standing ovation as they left the ring.

WrestleMania XXII

Edge vs. Mick Foley

There was no championship on the line, there was no long-standing rivalry coming to fruition, it was just a fight. These two put on a hardcore clinic from bell to bell. There was barbed wire, thumb tacks, and even a table set on fire.

Both Mick and Edge put their bodies through excruciating pain for the entertainment of the WWE Universe. Edge landed on tacks, Mick was hit with a barbed wire bat, and both men went through a table that was on fire.

Edge speared Foley from the ring apron through the burning table and got the 1, 2, 3 for the win. Both men walked out different than when they walked in. Both bloodied and battered, but both applauded.

WrestleMania XXIII

The Undertaker vs. Batista

This begins a streak of six straight matches on this list that features The Undertaker. In 2007, Taker won his first and only Royal Rumble and earned a shot at Batista and his World Heavyweight Championship. Undertaker was 14-0 at Mania entering this match as his streak was alive and well.

The two big bulls exchanged multiple high-velocity moves. Batista hoisted The Deadman over his shoulder and lept from one announce table to another driving the challenger to the floor. The Undertaker would kick out after Batista’s pin attempt inside the ring.

Undertaker would hit a chokeslam late but The Animal would return the favor and kick out. The champ would hit his Batista Bomb but even that couldn’t keep The Phenom down. Taker would eventually get his Tombstone landed and covered Batista for the victory. He not only improved his WrestleMania record to 15-0 but also claimed the World Heavyweight Championship.

WrestleMania XXIV

The Undertaker vs. Edge

I am well aware that the popular choice here would be Ric Flair’s retirement match against Shawn Michaels. I agree that match is significant for so many reasons but in this writer’s opinion, it wasn’t the best match of the night. Both Edge and Undertaker were at the top of their careers. Edge would go on to appear in four straight World Heavyweight Championship matches at WrestleMania starting with this one.

The World Heavyweight Champion Edge defended his title against The Lord of Darkness. The Undertaker walked into Mania 15-0 but Edge had never lost to The Undertaker either. The story of the match was Edge’s ability to keep countering or kicking out of Undertaker’s big moves. Old School, Chokeslam, and The Last Ride were all either countered or kicked out of by Edge.

While the referee was out, Edge nailed his opponent with a television camera but no referee meant no pinfall. Taker hit the Tombstone but with a new referee sprinting to the ring it gave Edge a chance to kick out before the three. Edge hit two spears but Undertaker kicked out of the first and then countered the pin attempt with his Triangle Choke Hold that forced Edge to tap out.

WrestleMania XXV

The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels

Perhaps the greatest match in WrestleMania history took place on April 5, 2009. Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker told an unbelievable story on that night. Two of the best to ever lace up the boots proved why they are legends.

Toward the end of the match, The Undertaker hit a Tombstone on Michaels after catching him in the middle of ‘skinning the cat’. Michaels kicked out leading to a crowd frenzy. He then hit Taker with a Sweet Chin Music but The Phenom kicked out of that leading to an even bigger frenzy.

The two living legends exchanged blows until Michaels climbed the top rope and attempted a moonsault. Taker caught HBK in mid-air and delivered another Tombstone, this time it worked.

WrestleMania XXVI

The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels

In their second consecutive WrestleMania battle, the expectations were absolutely through the roof. The two impressively did not disappoint. In a match heralded as Career versus Streak, if Michaels lost this match, it would be his last.

Similar to the year prior, Michaels and Undertaker took turns kicking out of their signature finishers that kept each and every fan at home and in attendance on the edge of their seats.

In the end, Undertaker told Michaels to “stay down”, Michaels mimicked Taker’s signature throat slash and then slapped the undefeated Lord of Darkness. Undertaker gave Michaels the fiercest Tombstone I have seen and thus ended HBK’s Hall of Fame career.

WrestleMania XXVII

The Undertaker vs. Triple H

With a No Holds Barred stipulation, anything and everything was legal in The Undertaker and Triple H’s second WrestleMania showdown. They competed against each other at WrestleMania XVII where The Undertaker walked away as the victor.

Triple H’s Pedigree nor Undertaker’s Last Ride ended the match. After countless chair shots to the Undertaker’s body, Triple H still couldn’t keep The Phenom down. Trips mirrored the Undertaker’s actions from the previous year and yelled at him to “stay down”. Triple H delivered Undertaker’s own Tombstone to Taker but the legend still kicked out.

Hunter went to his old reliable and brought out his sledgehammer. Undertaker would counter the attack with a Hell’s Gate which led to The Game tapping out. Triple H walked out of the ring while Taker was carried out on a cart.

WrestleMania XXVIII

The Undertaker vs. Triple H

The End Of An Era match pitted Undertaker and Triple H against each other for the second straight year but this time it would take place inside a structure that both men knew all too well, Hell In A Cell.

Shawn Michaels made a return to serve as the Special Guest Referee. He would eventually get involved only after The Undertaker got physical with him. In retaliation, Michaels hit a Sweet Chin Music. Triple H would cover a downed Taker but before HBK could get the three count, Taker kicked out.

Shawn would beg both men to just stop after Undertaker took a play out of Trips’ playbook from their last match by using a chair over and over on. Taker would wind up using a sledgehammer on Triple H after one last DX crotch chop from The Cerebral Assasin. After a good measure Tombstone, HBK counted to three for Undertaker’s win. The three men all left together and it truly was the end of an era.

WrestleMania XXIX

John Cena vs. The Rock

In the first John Cena and Rock matchup the year before, many fans were left a little letdown. It did not live up to expectations so the Leader of Cenation and The Great One gave it another try.

Nothing like Hogan versus Rock from WrestleMania XVIII but Cena versus Rock was a match between two of the biggest names to ever compete in WWE. Unlike the previous year, this match had the WWE Championship on the line.

The Rock entered as champion with Cena the challenger. The Rock appeared to be in much better ring condition this time. Both superstars gave it their all until Cena was able to capitalize on his third Attitude Adjustment and capture the WWE Championship from The Rock.

WrestleMania XXX

Daniel Bryan vs. Batista vs. Randy Orton

Daniel Bryan had to defeat Triple H earlier in the event to even earn his right to compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Bryan was white hot entering the match.

Bryan overcame every single odd and even though he was outsized and outweighed, he was not outwrestled. Toward the end of the match, Bryan would hit big moves on either Orton or Batista and then be thrown out by the other. Whoever was not hit would try to capitalize on Bryan’s move.

After Orton received a Batista Bomb, Bryan applied the Yes Lock and forced Batista to tap out. Daniel Bryan achieved his WrestleMania moment to the delight and sheer elation of the WWE Universe.

WrestleMania XXXI

Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns

What started out as a one-on-one contest between Reigns and Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship turned into a triple threat when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase.

Before Rollins showed up, Lesnar had been dominating Reigns although Roman kept coming back for more. Reigns would gain the advantage when he busted Lesnar open by shoving him into the ring post outside. With both men down, Rollins saw the opportunity.

After Reigns hit Lesnar, who was about to hit an F-5 on Rollins, with a spear, Rollins nailed a Curb Stomp on Reigns for the final three count.

WrestleMania XXXII

Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch

Three out of the Four Horsewomen blew everyone away at WrestleMania XXXII. With the winner being crowned the inaugural Women’s Champion, this match had a lot at stake and none of the three combatants were going to give anything but their all.

These three athletes are the staples of the Women’s Revolution and they made every single wrestler of past or present extremely proud. There were a lot of elements to this match including Snoop Dogg and Ric Flair.

The highlight was Charlotte’s picture perfect moonsault from the top rope to the outside onto both Sasha and Becky. Charlotte would eventually lock in her Figure Four on Lynch as her dad Ric prevented Sasha from entering the ring. Becky tapped out and Charlotte was crowned the new Women’s Champion.

WrestleMania XXXIII

Seth Rollins vs. Triple H

Last year’s WrestleMania provided us with a rematch of Goldberg versus Brock Lesnar as well as what appeared to be The Undertaker’s final match. We will see on Sunday night what happens with The Undertaker. But with those big moments, the best match of the night was Seth Rollins versus Triple H.

The entrances for both superstars set the tone for a highly competitive match. Rollins had a trail of flame on the ramp leading him down to the ring while Triple H was led to the ring by a police escort.

The match itself was back and forth while Triple H was really playing toward Rollins legit knee injury that had kept him out of WrestleMania XXXII. Rollins would eventually get the three count on The Game, only after multiple counters. The insult to injury here was Rollins used Triple H’s Pedigree to seal the victory.

So there you have it, folks. Sports Al Dente’s list of the best matches from each WrestleMania. Agree or disagree we want to hear or see your thoughts so please feel free to comment but keep it respectful.

What match will steal the show this year? Will it be The Miz defending his Intercontinental Championship against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor? Will Charlotte and Asuka leave everyone in awe? Find out on Sunday, April 8th when WrestleMania XXXIV takes over New Orleans.
