WrestleMania is the Showcase of the Immortals and while the marquee matches that take place at the annual event are the ones that traditionally sell the show, some of the greatest matches in the history of the event have taken part in the undercard.
Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage. Bret Hart vs. Roddy Piper. Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels.
Those are just a few of the matches that stole the show out from underneath their more hyped main event counterparts.
While the format of WrestleMania has changed over the years with midcard matches being afforded no time to really steal the show as they have in the past, the bouts remain an integral part of the show. They are the matches that set the stage for the main events and get the talented stars that have not been able to breakthrough the glass ceiling to that point on the card.
With the main event stories and matches beginning to come into focus, attention will soon shift to the undercard and the limited number of matches that there will be enough room for. There are so many talented individuals vying for so few spots for the secondary bouts on this year's card that the construction of every match could be the difference between a 'Mania payday and a seat on the sidelines for the biggest show of the year.
Which matches would help elevate the undercard and, at the same time, help the most deserving stars onto the show?
Let's take a look.
