Triple H vs The Undertaker: WrestleMania X-Seven
They'll collide in a few weeks, but they also met each other 10 years ago. This was your classic "I don't have anything to do, but I am better than you" buildup, but it was done so well that you knew this match was going to be great. It was one of the best matches that Taker has had at WrestleMania, despite being one of the matches that doesn't come to mind.
Bret Hart vs Owen Hart: WrestleMania X
A match that was overshadowed by a member of the top 20, a collision of the two Harts was a classic Mania moment. Owen won, which may be the most shocking thing to take out of it. Brothers facing brothers is always a good sell. Keep that in mind for the list.
Mick Foley vs Edge: WrestleMania 22
There may not be a motive for a Mania match that I love more than to establish that "WrestleMania moment." So many great wrestlers never got that marquee moment that they could hang their hat on. This match did great things for both men—although I can think of one moment that overshadows it for Edge.
Big Show vs Mick Foley vs The Rock vs HHH: WrestleMania 2000, "A McMahon in Every Corner"
Leave it to the McMahon Family to make a Fatal 4-Way all about them. It was built up the right way, though. With four of the best in the business at that time aligned with a different personality of the royal family of wrestling, it combined multiple feuds and made a huge main event for that year's WrestleMania.
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper vs Bret Hart: WrestleMania VIII
This was Piper's finest match at WrestleMania. The Hot Rod—who would never be a WWE Champion—walked into this match with his only Intercontinental Championship around his waist. At a WrestleMania that showed so much promise with Ric Flair vs. Hulk Hogan—only to have that match split into co-main events—Piper and Hart stuck to what they did best.
The ending was one of the best I have ever seen in a WrestleMania match. Piper holds the ring bell about to hit The Hitman, but decides against it. He then locks him in a sleeper hold only for Hart to use the ringpost to flip into a small package for the pinfall. The rise of The Hitman began that night.
Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage: WrestleMania V
The two men who used to make up The Mega Powers squared off in WrestleMania V with Miss Elizabeth standing in between. It was a classic matchup between two demigods of their time. Savage became jealous of Hogan after he took care of Miss Elizabeth when she was hurt during a match. Elizabeth was never going to be romantically involved with Hogan, but it did make for a solid build to the breakup of one of the dream tag teams of the 80s.
Randy Savage vs Ric Flair: WrestleMania VIII
Two of the most entertaining mic workers to ever work the WWE. Flair was the world champion at the time and—as previously stated—was supposed to wrestle Hulk Hogan in the main event. However, it got scrapped and split apart.
While Hogan faced Sid Justice in the last match, Flair defended the WWF championship midway through the night against The Macho Man. Savage teased Flair, to which Flair responded by saying he had been with Miss Elizabeth and had pictures to prove it. The pictures were phony but the match was not. Savage was not Hogan that night, but it was the definitely the better match.
