To many, WrestleMania X-Seven is considered the best 'Mania ever. For me, it is WrestleMania 21.
This WrestleMania was the PPV where a lot of memorable moments occurred. We can still see the effects to this day.
The night began with Rey Mysterio defeating Eddie Guerrero in a good opening match. That led to both feuding for months in 2005.
The match that many people consider the highlight of the feud occurred at the 2005 SummerSlam.
The first ever Money In The Bank Ladder match came after. This was the beginning of a tradition for the event. The match even got it's own PPV.
It featured Edge defeating Chris Jericho, Christian, Kane, Shelton Benjamin and Chris Benoit. The match was awesome, and the highlight was Benjamin's wild antics.
Edge cashed in his briefcase at New Year's Revolution the following year and defeated John Cena to win his first WWE Championship.
Randy Orton vs. The Undertaker went on next, and it was good like the two previous matches. Orton was set out to end the streak, but failed.
Throughout 2005, Orton and 'Taker continued their feud. It led to the feud ending at Armageddon in a great Hell In A Cell match.
Next up was a match to calm the people down. Trish Stratus defeated Christy Hemme to retain her Women's Championship.
The match was not good, but it continued to show Stratus proving why she was that good in the WWE.
Shawn Michaels vs. Kurt Angle came after, which was the match of the night. Angle defeated Michaels by submission to show why he was the best wrestler in the company.
The feud continued on Raw when Angle was drafted to the brand in June.
A Sumo match came after the classic Angle/Michaels confrontation. Akebono defeated Big Show in a boring match.
It may have sucked, but history was made that night. It was the first and only Sumo match to have taken place at a WrestleMania.
The next match began the era of John Cena. He defeated JBL for the WWE Championship, and kept it until January.
The match that followed also marked history as it began the era of Batista. He defeated Triple H to win the World Heavyweight Championship.
Overall, WrestleMania 21 marked the beginning of careers, feuds and great matches. This was also the first time both the WWE and World Heavyweight Championship changed hands at the event.
Not only do I consider this my favorite PPV because of the history within it, but also because I was personally in attendance.
Yes, WrestleMania X-Seven will always be considered the best, but to me, WrestleMania 21 will always be my favorite.
