Hey everyone. I'm back with PART 2 of the The Best Match of Every Individual WrestleMania. I hope you enjoy.
WrestleMania VI - Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior for the World Wrestling Federation Championship and the Intercontinental Championship
This match was one of the greatest one on one matches of the 20th Century. Intercontinental Champion The Ultimate Warrior and World Champion Hulk Hogan battling it out for both championships. Many thought Hulk was going to win because he was the favourite. This was the first Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior battled. The Ultimare Warrir even hoisted Hogan up in the air and Military Pressed him to the mat. The finish came when Hulk missed the Atomic Leg Drop and Warrior quickly hit the big splash for the pinfall. With this win, The Ultimate Warrior became the first man to hold both the World Championship and the Intercontinental Championship at the same time.
WrestleMania VII - The Ultimate Warrior vs. Macho Man Randy Savage
This match was one for the ages. It all began when Savage cost Warrior the World Championship at the Royal Rumble to Sgt. Slaughter. Over the next few weeks, they feuded until finally the Warrior challenged Savage to a Retirement Match, which Savage accepted. Savage was accompanied by Sensational Sherri for the match and Miss Elizabeth was spotted in the crowd. The Macho Man hit 5 Savage Elbow's off the top rope but Warrior somehow managed to stay alive. The Warrior then hit multiple running shoulder blocks and military presses, followed by a Warrior Splash for the pin, which forced Savage to retire. After the match, Sherri attacked Savage but Elizabeth ran into the ring and fought her off. She then reuinited with Savage and they both walked out of the arena together.
WrestleMania VIII - Bret Hart vs. Rowdy Roddy Piper for the Intercontinental Championship
Another great classic. One of the greatest Intercontinental Championship matches in history. Piper the reigning champion defending against Bret The Hitman Hart. These two wrestled for 15 minutes. Hart was busted open during the match. Piper nearly won but Bret kept fighting. The referee was knocked down late in the match, which gave Piper an opportunity to use the Ring Bell to his advantage but had a change of heart. Hart went to strike but Piper ducked it and locked in the Sleeper Hold. Hart springboarded off the ropes and turned into a modified roll up. The hold was still locked in but the referee counted Piper's shoulders down for the three count. After the match, Piper helped Bret to his feet and the two men showed respect for one another.
WrestleMania IX - Lex Luger vs. Mr. Perfect
Lex Luger originally signed with the WBF (World Bodybuilding Federation) but went to World Wrestling Federation after the WBF company failed. Lex made his debut at the 1993 Royal Rumble, as Bobby The Brain Heenan's newest wrestler. Heenan and Mr. Pefect had a rivalry dating back to Survivor Series 1992 when Perfect turned on Heenan and Flair. This lead to a match between Perfect and Luger at WrestleMania. Luger nearly lost but got his foot on the rope just in time. Luger pinned Perfect but Perfect's foot was on the bottom ropes also, but the referee didn't see it. Luger continued to attack Perfect after the match and even hit him in the head with his forearm, which had a steel plate inserted after a motorcycle accident. Perfect got up thougha and chased Luger to the back.
WrestleMania X - Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart
Greatest match between brothers in Wresting History. The Hart Foundation began to fall apart back at Survivor Series 1993 when Owen accidentally knocked Bret off the apron during an Elimination Tag Team match. That distraction got Owen eliminated from the match. Owen returned later on in the match and confronted Bret. Over the next few weeks, Owen challenged Bret to a match, but Bret declined every time. He then turned on Bret by attacking him after Bret was injured during a tag match with The Quebecers at the Royal Rumble. This led to Bret finally accepting the match. These two went back and forth during the match. Bret hit a Sitout Belly to BellyPiledriver. Bret injured his knee during the match after landing awkwardly when he dived outside and onto Owen. This allowed Owen to capitalize. Owen even locked in the Sharpshooter on Bret but Bret rolled through and locked in the Sharpshooter on Owen. Owen escaped and Bret then attempted to end the match with a Victory Roll Up Pin. Owen blocked it and reversed it into a Modified Victory Roll of his own that allowed him to pin his brother. While Owen was walking away, Bret applauded his brother from the ring.
