Impact: The goal of every single WWE event and pay-per-view.
If the wrestling and promos on a night are great for a PPV, they still can't be trusted to be remembered.
If fans leave an event without feeling emotionally impacted by the proceedings, the event has failed, regardless of how good or bad it was.
When it comes to WrestleMania, this becomes an even more essential concept. If you leave WrestleMania unimpacted, you know something went wrong.
WrestleMania XXVIII is almost guaranteed based on its card to a leave a lasting impact, one for the ages, yet even it could fail if it does not leave that lasting impression.
Impact can come from promos, segments, moments and results.
While it is impossible to predict what will be impactful on a night based on moments, it is possible to roughly figure how impactful a night could end up being based purely upon results.
What wins will leave WWE fans remembering the night for a lifetime? What wins will be forgotten the day after?
The following is a ranking of every possible winner on the night and how impactful their win could be. Note that impact is not always a perfect measure, and some of these results you will disagree with, even if they are truly impactful.
