What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think back to WrestleMania 19? Hopefully, it's not Lesnar's attempt at the shooting star press.
Safeco Field in Seattle hosted this event and there really isn't much it didn't have. All in all, it was a very good show.
What Made It Good?
Michaels and Jericho had a perfect one-on-one matchup. It was so good that it was a shame to see someone lose. This is another match that doesn't get mentioned often when it comes to best matches in the history of the event, but it should.
Hogan and McMahon was a match that old-school fans had to love and had to be on one side or the other. Not even an appearance by Piper could stop the Hulkster from pulling out the win.
Austin and The Rock completed their trilogy against each other in grand fashion. The Rock, who had accomplished basically everything in the business, had never defeated Austin at WrestleMania. That changed at WrestleMania 19 when Rock finally got a win over him. To this day, it marks the last match of Austin's career.
The main event saw Angle and Lesnar, arguably the top two athletes on the roster at the time, square off for the WWE title. Lesnar got the win despite his attempt at the shooting star press that could've ended much, much worse than it did.
What Dragged It Down?
The involvement of Nathan Jones was about the only blemish on this card. He was scheduled to team up with Undertaker to face Big Show and A-Train but instead was taken out of the match, turning it into a handicap match.
Undertaker would still win, as he has done every time he has competed at the event.
