It’s Wrestlemania Time!
At 4pm PT, Wrestlemania XXVII will get underway in Atlanta, Georgia. The Rock is back, the match card looks great, and I know I’ll be watching with my friends. The biggest evening in sports entertainment has seen its share of epic matches and starmaking moments, from Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart’s Iron Man match at WM XII to Steve Austin’s heel turn at WM XVII. My personal favorite, though is from Wrestlemania III, which set the indoor attendance record by selling out the Pontiac Silverdome. Hulk Hogan vs, Andre the Giant (a match billed as “Titan vs Titan”) was the main event, and while their match was electric, it didn’t come close to the match that stole the show; a match that remains my favorite match of all time. I’m referring, of course, to the Intercontinental Title Match between The Macho Man Randy Savage and Ricky The Dragon Steamboat. The match had heat, told a great story, and featured two of the best wrestlers of all time in their prime. Rather than show you the entire match, here are some highlights:
Let the show begin!
