They call WrestleMania the "showcase of the immortals." And for more than 25 years, it's lived up to that name, hosting professional wrestling's very best. A who's who of superstars have entered the ring, from wrestling stalwarts Andre the Giant and John Cena to celebrities like Pete Rose, Liberace and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
These men and women have walked right past hundreds of lookalikes, ridden in motorized carts, zoomed in on a zip line from high above the fray, dressed as barbarian kings and even styled and profiled right into the arena inside a shiny pink Cadillac. But, as delightful as the pomp and circumstance can be, it's in the ring and not on the ramp where business really picks up.
All the celebrities in the world, all the musical acts, all the hoopla would be worthless without the ultimate pro wrestling product—a great match. In honor of WrestleMania 29, I've selected the 29 best bouts in the history of wrestling's grandest spectacle.
This list has it all. High flying. Spectacular stunts. Hard-hitting action. And, of course, the biggest stars in the matches fans most wanted to see.
