Kane & Chavo Guerrero: Quickest Wrestlemania Match
Going into Wrestlemania 24 we were treated with a Battle Royal to determine who would face Chavo Guerrero for the ECW title later on in the night. With many superstars entering many thought that Mark Henry or Khali would walk away with the title opportunity but to our surprise and delight Kane was victorious.
Later on in the night Kane would face Chavo for the ECW title, Chavo walked out first and as he awaited The Big Red Machine, he never realize that Big Red was standing behind him all this time. The bell rang and before you knew it Kane was the new Champion.

TO the Rock's dismay the celebration ended after The Rock made a fool out of Mankind. it was one of the most entertaining and exciting promos we have ever seen, it was so good that it went longer then expected, normally Vince would not let something like this happen however it gave him the Highest Rated Segment of that Time as it reached 8.41 on the Ratings.
Bret Hart: 2 Time King Of The Ring Champion
We all no Bret Hart as the King of Harts. Well there is a good reason for that Nickname as he won not one but two King of the Ring Tournaments, A feat that has never been accomplished by any superstar to this date.
