Hey everyone! It's The Wrestling Classic here with another list for ONE37pm. This month I have been tasked with writing an article where I rank the 40 best WrestleMania matches of all time. This is a hard task, especially when it comes to WrestleMania. The WWE always goes above and beyond to make sure they deliver at the biggest show of the year. I have covered WrestleMania in the past when I ranked every event and even when I ranked every match The Undertaker had at WrestleMania. This task is no different.
The criteria for this list are based on the substance of the actual matches. That means I am not considering the overall rivalry or build-up to the matches. There are matches missing from this list that were highly significant, had amazing build-ups, and did big in drawing power for the WWF/E. To be quite honest, Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant and Hulk Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior didn’t make this list because the matches themselves aren’t something I desire to go back to watch.
The multi-man ladder matches, whether for the Money in the Bank contract or the Intercontinental Championship, weren’t considered for this list either because they would take up most of this list as they’re all pretty memorable. It’s not hard to steal the show with a multi-man ladder match including innovative moments and high spots. They actually deserve to be ranked on their own separate list.
Now read this list as if it’s a catalog for someone who never watched wrestling or is new to watching wrestling but wants to watch some of the best matches from WrestleMania. Be sure to share with your wrestling friends to get into some serious debates!
