With "30 Years of WrestleMania" tabbed as the theme of WWE 2K14’s single-player campaign, imaginations and keyboards ran wild as fans speculated about the details.
Finally, the speculation is over—somewhat. We have the exclusive full list of the 46 matches available in the mode. Because the list is so vast, it has been broken into eras. For the next five days (today included) we will be revealing every match by era.
A few of the matches included have already been revealed, but by Friday, Sept. 20, the world will know all 46 of the classics at our fingertips. The objective of each match in the mode is to recreate the most famous moments. Though we don't have the objectives for every match, if you're familiar with the corresponding WrestleMania, you may be able to guess what your assignments will be.
We could start with any of the amazing matches included in the mode, but why not start where it all began? The time spanning from WrestleMania I to WrestleMania IX is being referred to as the era when “Hulkamania Runs Wild.” Unless you’re completely oblivious to wrestling culture, you know that is a direct reference to arguably the greatest sports entertainer in history, Hulk Hogan.
Here on Day 1, we will reveal the first 10 matches in the 30 Years of WrestleMania mode. As a mainstay in the WWE title scene, the first nine years of the Showcase of Immortals was almost all about Hulkamania. Though he doesn’t appear in every match, you should expect a heavy dose of the Hulkster in this era.
Let’s get to it.
