Rate this Entry
Hi everyone. I'm back with another opinion. I'm continuing the Top Match of Every Individual WrestleMania. Here's PART 4. I hope you enjoy.

[B]WrestleMania XVI - Triple H vs. The Rock vs. Big Show vs. Mick Foley for the World Wrestling Federation Championship [/B]
This match was an elimination match. Triple H retained against Foley at Royal Rumble in a Street Fight to retain the title and then again at No Way Out against Foley in a Hell In A Cell match. The Rock won the Royal Rumble match after last eliminating Big Show. Big Show claimed that The Rock's feet hit the floor first and defeated Rock at No Way Out to gain Rock's title match at WrestleMania but Rock defeated Big Show with help from Mr. McMahon to gain entry into the match, which made it a Triple Threat match but Linda McMahon announced that Foley would also be in the match, making it a Fatal-4-Way match. Foley, Triple H and Rock ganged up on Big Show and Foley hit Big Show with a chair and Rock eliminated Show after a Rock Bottom. Foley immediately hit the Double Arm DDT on his former tag team partner but was eliminated by Triple H after two Pedigrees. The Rock and Triple H brawled for another 15 minutes until Mr. McMahon came out and struck Rock in the head with a chair two times. This turned Vince heel and allowed Triple H to pin Rock and retain the title. But Rock got even by hitting the Rock Bottom on Vince, Shane and Stephanie.

[B]WrestleMania X-Seven - Edge & Christian vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. The Hardy Boyz for the World Tag Team Championship [/B]
Okay, everyone should of heard about this match. A Triple Threat Tables, Ladders & Chairs match...Oh My! Also known as "TLC II". The Hardyz were accompanied by Lita, The Dudley Boyz were accompanied by Spike Dudley and E&C were managed by Rhyno. All three managers interfered but Jeff Hardy took Rhyno and Spike out with a Swanton Bomb off a ladder and through two tables. Jeff tried to grab the titles but Bubba Ray knocked the ladder from under his feet, which left Jeff hanging above by the titles. Edge climbed up another ladder and Speared Jeff in mid-air and down to the mat. Jeff was out for the rest of the match. Matt and Bubba were pushed off another Ladder by Rhyno outside and through more tables. And with help from Rhyno AGAIN, Christian climbed the ladder and took the belts down, making him and Edge the NEW Tag Team Champions.

[B]WrestleMania X8 - The Rock vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan [/B]
After The Rock's victory over The Undertaker at No Way Out 2002, The Rock challenged Hulk Hogan to a match at WrestleMania. Hogan accepted and the two shook hands but Rock kept the hold and hit Hogan with a Rock Bottom, which led to an ambush on Rock by The nWo (Kevin Nash and Scott Hall). They then spray painted "nWo" on The Rock's back. Later on, The nWo trapped Rock in a van and drove a truck into it. The Rock returned and teamed with Steve Austin in a Handicap match against the nWo but lost after Rock was pinned by Hogan. Hogan and Rock met at WrestleMania. Rock locked the Sharpshooter on Hogan and Hogan tapped out but the referee was knocked out, so the match continued. Hogan hit Rock with a low blow and his version of The Rock Bottom but Rock kicked out. The Rock eventually hit the Rock Bottom on Hogan but Hogan kicked out. And Hogan hit the Leg Drop on Rock but Rock kicked out again. Rock hit two more Rock Bottoms on Hogan and finished him with The People's Elbow for the pin and the win. After the match, Hogan and Rock shook hands and as Rock was leaving the ring, Hall and Nash came out and attacked Hogan but Rock came back out and saved Hogan, thus turning Hogan face once again.

[B]WrestleMania XIX - Mr. McMahon vs. Hulk Hogan [/B]
This one was so difficult to choose which was the Top match. Hogan vs McMahon, Lesnar vs Angle for the WWE Title, HBK vs Y2J and The Rock vs Stone Cold Steve Austin. But this match was 20 Years in the making. McMahon cost Hogan a match against The Rock at No Way Out and on SmackDown, he admitted that he hated Hogan for jumping ship to WCW in 1994 and for testifying against him in a steroid trial in 1994. McMahon challenged Hogan to a match at WrestleMania, which Hogan accepted and if Hogan lost, he would be forced to retire from Professional Wrestling. During the match, McMahon placed Hogan on a table and climbed a ladder and did Hogan's Atomic Leg Drop on Hogan, putting both of them through the table. Later on, Rowdy Roddy Piper returned to WWE and turned heel by striking Hogan with a lead pipe. Sylvan Grenier, a "referee" who helped screw Hogan at No Way Out came down to count the pin. Hogan kicked out of the pinfall attempt and Hulked Up. He tossed Grenier out of the ring and he hit McMahon with a big boot. Hogan then hit three consecutive Atomic Leg Drops on McMahon before pinning him for the win.

[B]WrestleMania XX - Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Benoit for the World Heavyweight Championship [/B]
This started when Eric Bischoff preventing Shawn from winning his 5th World Title. At the Royal Rumble, Michaels and Triple H fought to a draw in a Last Man Standing match, which meant Triple H retained the title. That same night, Benoit won the Royal Rumble after last eliminating Big Show. Benoit came to Raw the next night and challenged Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship. During the contract signing, Michaels came down and hit both men with Sweet Chin Music and put his name on the contract, controversially making the match a Triple Threat match. During the match, all three men hit their Signature Moves. Benoit applied the Crossface on Michaels but Triple H intercepted it just as Michaels was about to tap out. Triple H then hit the Pedigree on Benoit but Michaels stopped the pin attempt. Later on, Michaels and Triple H double teamed Benoit by suplexing him through the announcer table. Benoit then made a come back and Michaels attempted to hit Sweet Chin Music, but Benoit tossed him outside of the ring. Triple H tried to capitalize with a second Pedigree on Benoit but Benoit countered it into the Crossface. Triple H tried to reach the ropes but Benoit rolled him back to the center of the ring and Triple H tapped out, giving Benoit his first and only World Heavyweight Championship, and second overall World Title.

    No chance that the elimination match makes this when two other matches on the show were by far stole the show. Both were triple threat matches by the way. Triangle ladder match for the tag titles was on the line. How can you possibly believe that Wrestlemania 17 Ladder match was the best on the show? Must be a huge Rhino fan or something because that ladder match sucked in comparison. Rhino, Lita, and Spike made the match really terrible. Other than the Jeff Hardy spear.....the rest of the match sucked. Angle vs Benoit stole the show that night. It is foolish for anyone to believe otherwise. Like Undertaker vs HHH was any good or that the TLC was better.

    As far as the WM 16 that I got off track from. Jericho vs Benoit vs Angle was a great match as well.

    WM19 goes to Jericho vs HBK

    The rest is alright with me.
