Since the inaugural edition back in 1985, WrestleMania has been an absolute staple of the WWE and professional wrestling in general.
Nobody knew how big of a spectacle it would become, but with WrestleMania XXIX closing in fast, it is abundantly clear that 'Mania won't be slowing down any time soon.
Some WrestleManias have been incredible, some have been lackluster and others have simply been average, but the show's impact on the business is undeniable. When wrestling fans are asked to name their all-time favorite match, it's inevitable that most of them immediately point to a WrestleMania bout. When amazing matches happen at 'Mania they are almost always accentuated by the big stage.
It's a pretty common practice to rank the greatest WrestleMania matches of all time, but it all comes down to preference. With that in mind, I decided to put a different twist on things. There have been countless memorable matches from WrestleMania, and I have often wondered what the ultimate WrestleMania card would look like.
I've decided to put that card together, but there are a number of rules that must be followed.
My ultimate card will contain 10 matches, and a Superstar cannot be used more than once, which means that guys like Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan, who have each had multiple elite matches at 'Mania can only appear on the card one time.
Also, the same title can't be on the line in more than one match, which obviously limits things to some degree as well. I attempted to get the vast majority of the WWE's biggest stars on the card, but I unfortunately I had to leave some legends like Ric Flair, Roddy Piper and Chris Jericho off.
With that said, here is my ultimate WrestleMania card. Don't forget to leave a comment and feel free to offer your own ultimate 'Mania based on the criteria listed above.
