There is no show in wrestling quite like WrestleMania.

With 93,000 packed into the Pontiac Silverdome, fans were treated to one of the greatest all-time matches ever between “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, and then they witnessed one of the all time greatest moments when the immortal Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the GIant.
All too often, this Wrestlemania seems to go overlooked as it happened in a down period for the wrestling business, but make no mistake, this card offered up two of the best matches of all time: First, the opening match that pitted Bret “The Hitman” Hart against his baby brother, Owen. THEN we got the first ever ladder match in an epic confrontation between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon. Every exciting ladder match that would ever follow has to pay tribute to the high bar set between these two.
