The greatest spectacle in sports entertainment takes place in just a couple of weeks. March 29th will be the 31st WrestleMania and the highly anticipated event will happen at the Levi's Stadium in Silicon Valley, California. WrestleMania has always set the standard for any other wrestling pay-per-view and quite possibly any other televised sporting event. Many die-hard wrestling fans can remember the phenomenal matches of the past, especially some of the ones that involved controversy, so much so that many people still talk about them today.
WrestleMania 31 will most likely have some controversy as well and will most likely be remembered years from now, for one reason or another. Some of the matches featured at this year's event are Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns, HHH vs Sting, and The Undertaker vs Bray Wyatt, and that's just to name a few. Fresh off last year's huge surprise of the Undertaker's undefeated streak being broken, there's no telling what will happen this year.
10 Taker vs Giant Gonzalez - WrestleMania IX
9 Benoit and Guerrero - WrestleMania XX
Respectfully, Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero were two wrestlers who were power houses and did, in fact, give the best of wrestlers the matches of their lives. They may not have had the stature of The Rock or Stone Cold Steve Austin, but these guys were a great contribution to the history of the WWE.
Because Benoit and Guerrero weren't the A-list wrestlers like others on the bill at WrestleMania XX, it was questionable as to why they were given such a huge moment that night. Shawn Michaels, Chris Benoit and HHH fought for the World Heavyweight Championship in a phenomenal match, and Benoit came out on top and became the World Champ.
8 Mayweather vs The Big Show - WrestleMania XXIV
Through the years quite a few celebrities have been part of the WWE's live event shows, but being knocked out by a celebrity is pretty uncommon. The no disqualification between Big Show and Floyd Mayweather at WrestleMania XXIV is a perfect example of this.
7 Lesnar VS Angle - WrestleMania XIX
6 Goldberg vs Lesnar - WrestleMania XX
5 Bryan vs Sheamus - WrestleMania XXVIII
4 Austin vs The Rock - WrestleMania XVII
3 Michaels vs Austin - WrestleMania XIV
2 Hart vs Austin - WrestleMania XIII
1 Hart vs Yokazuna - WrestleMania IX
The match that took place at WrestleMania IX between Bret Hart and Yokazuna has been mentioned over the years as one of the worst pay-per-view matches in WWE history. Yokazuna ended up defeating Hart in just a few minutes for the title. The fact that this was the main event at the biggest wrestling event of the year only made this match a bigger disappointment for everyone watching. Yokazuna won after Mr. Fuji threw powder into Harts eyes. Eventually Hulk Hogan ran out to the ring to tell the referee what happened, only to be challenged my Mr. Fuji to wrestle Yokazuna. Hogan immediately accepted and won the title.
