Surprised!? Probably not, but that’s okay.
Wrestlemania X-7 was the perfect WWE event. It had the perfect balance of wrestling action and entertainment that made this one of the greatest Wrestlemania’s ever.
The under card matches were all awesome. Yeah the APA and Tazz vs. The Right to Censor was stupid, but everything else was great.
The match for the Hardcore Championship was really pretty awesome. Kane, Big Show, and Raven really blew my mind. I expected it to be bullshit, but they did a great job of using the entire Astrodome as a weapon.
The William Regal/ Jericho match was an okay match. It had nothing special but it was still a good contest between two solid workers.
The Benoit/Kurt Angle match is one of my all-time favorites. They wrestled an awesome match that made me glad I bought the Wrestlemania Anthology. (That’s right I won every Wrestlemania; all 24 of them out on DVD. “Be jealous”)
Who could forget TLC II? The three-team that redefined tag team wrestling and ladder matches came back to give us one more spectacular match. Almost every spot in the match is still used in WWE montages today. It was hardcore tag team wrestling at its finest.
The gimmick battle royal may have been horrible, but it provided a nice nostalgic feeling to the event. It was nice to see the Iron Sheik get the victory. If he hadn’t, he might have spent the next five years cussing about losing.
The Undertaker and Triple H match was by far the highlight of the event and was the first time these two faced off one-on-one.
Many describe it as a match and a street-fight as the referee was knocked out early on and the two battled through the crowd for most of the match. It was a very different type of match and the crowd got to see their hometown boy get the victory over “The Game”.
Austin and The Rock did it again with another amazing encounter at ‘Mania. They battled all over the place, but no one could have ever guessed the ending. Vince McMahon came out and gave Austin a chair and told him to hit The Rock. After nearly three years of feuding we saw McMahon helping Austin and it blew everybody’s mind.
