This slideshow is a list of main events that I would've loved to have seen at Wrestlemania but never happened or haven't happened as of yet. To me these are some of the all time greatest rivalries in WWF and wrestling history. These main events would've been the culmination of some of the longest and most memorable feuds, deserving to be on the grandest stage of all.
In the height of the WWF's huge popularity in the 80's there were two standout stars in the company. Hulk Hogan was the biggest face at the time, while Roddy Piper was the most hated bad guy of the time. This would've made for one of the biggest and most memorable main events of all time.
The ideal scenario would've been Piper winning the title off Hogan in controversial circumstances and holding on to it for several months. This would've set the stage for Hogan to go on a long journey to reclaim the title and culminate one of the greatest feuds of all time.
I guarantee this match would've created a great amount of interest, particularly around WM 2. It definitely would've been greater than Hogan vs King Kong Bundy. What would make this great would be that for a change Hogan is chasing the title. Who better to chase then the biggest baddie at the time.
These two are without a doubt two of the most popular superstars of all time, throughout every promotion they wrestled in. Both are also two of the most accomplished wrestlers of all time, having close to 30 combined world title reigns. This would've been one of the ultimate main events in wrestlemania history.
In my opinion, I would've preferred to have seen Hogan vs Flair for the title at WM 8, no disrespect to Randy Savage. I guarantee this would've been one of the most watched wrestlemanias of all time and could've made millions more.
These two had one of the greatest feuds in the history of the WWF/WWE during 2002. They put on very memorable matches such as their unsanctioned match and hell in a cell match. This would've been one of the truly great wrestlemania main events and would've been the perfect place to culminate their long and heated rivalry.
In addition, there would've been greater interest if it was held at wm 19 seeing as this was Mr Wrestlemania's long awaited return to the grandest stage and fighting the biggest bad guy at the time. No doubt it would've been an excellent and memorable match.
Before people comment on these two being in the 2000 wrestlemania main event, I wanna clarify that they didn't face each other one on one. During this time, The Rock took over Stone Cold's place as the top face of the company. He was also popular among mainstream audiences. On the other hand Triple H was the biggest heel and had control of the wwf and its title with his on screen wife by his side.
This feud was one of the greats and deserved to have been ended in a singles match. No doubt it would've been an all time great.
This would've been perfect for Wrestlemania 9. Hogan had been the top face of the WWF for the past decade. On the other hand, you had Bret Hart who was breaking out as a singles superstar and the likely successor. This would've been the perfect opportunity for Hogan to pass the torch to Hart.
This match would've been a huge draw and nice to see Hogan genuinely put over the future of the company. No doubt Hart would've made this one of the most memorable main events in wrestlemania history.
