It seems like with every good WrestleMania, we get two pretty bad ones. Last year’s show was surprisingly entertaining, and hopefully despite the lack of depth to this year’s show, WrestleMania still pulls through with another decent card.
WrestleMania is all about showcasing the best the WWE has to offer. Who can forget some of the greatest main events we’ve ever seen, which included wrestlers like Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, just to a name a few. Unfortunately, it’s not always the best. The WWE has a weird sense of humor sometimes throwing in some of the most idiotic concepts at its fans. To make matters worse, we’ve seen examples of this at the WWE’s biggest stage, WrestleMania. Let’s now take a look at some off the less glamorous WrestleMania moments. Here are 10 of the worst wrestlers to ever main event WrestleMania. Enjoy!
10 Roman Reigns: WrestleMania 31
9 Big Show: WrestleMania 2000
8 Batista: WrestleMania 21
Batista in the main event was intended to be a passing of the torch type of match, and according to several wrestling critics Batista failed to do so on the biggest stage of them all. His match with Triple H was regarded as an absolute flop. Michaels and Angle absolutely stole the show that night. The WWE was going for a feel good type of moment with Batista winning the championship to close off the show, similar to the WrestleMania the year before which saw the late Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit capture the titles. This time however, you didn’t get that same type of feel following the match.
7 Sgt. Slaughter: WrestleMania VII
6 King Kong Bundy: WrestleMania 2
5 Kevin Nash: WrestleMania XI
4 Mr. T: WrestleMania 2
3 Sycho Sid: WrestleMania 13
2 The Miz: WrestleMania XXVII
1 Lawrence Taylor and Bam Bam Bigelow: WrestleMania XI
Not sure when the WWE will figure out that wrestling fans don’t really care for celebrity involvement. McMahon has been obsessed with this motto since the very first WrestleMania, as Vince loves to create a buzz outside of the wrestling business and into the entertainment world. This celebrity cameo however, was an epic fail. The 11 minute main event match was uncomfortable to watch and just plain awkward. This main event is regarded as the worst in WrestleMania history. No surprise that there were only 15,000 on hand in Hartford to witness this train wreck main event match-up.
