The Grandest Stage of All: Ranking Every Male Wrestler at WrestleMania, Part 1

For every wrestling fan, WrestleMania is the penultimate show each year. The same could be said about every wrestler to every tie up their boots and squeeze into tights.

Many pro wrestlers never get the chance to experience being part of WrestleMania, while others make their careers there with defining moments generally associated with the event.

So with WrestleMania 28 being held in a little over six months, I decided to rank every male performer that wrestled at least two WrestleManias. I decided that they needed at least two WrestleManias as it's hard enough to appear at one WrestleMania. So I immediately removed all wrestlers who only had one appearance including any guest performers like NFL players, boxers, or sumo wrestlers.

I also did not count any battle royal-type matches as a performance since those were made up of wrestlers who only had one appearance. If a wrestler did perform in a battle royal but still had more than one appearance, the battle royal does not help nor hinder their ranking.

After going through the cards of each WrestleMania I compiled a list consisting of 138 wrestlers that fit into my criteria. From there I established a point system that would allow me to properly rank each wrestler.

I then will give a letter grade as well that is separate from the ranking, as the grade reflects how the wrestler performed, not how many high profile matches that they had.

So please read through the first part of what will be a long series and tell me what you think.
