I hope you guys enjoyed this list. I tried to mix the list it up to where I could have the matches that would play to the favor of today’s wrestling fan and and also the old-school wrestling fans. The list was formed out of historical significance, story telling, and match quality. It’s a subjective list there’s no right or wrong answer, but at the same time I would like to hear back from you guys. Tells us your favorite WrestleMania matches from the Golden Era of the WWE. Next week I’ll have the difficult task to come up with a list of the best 31 WrestleMania matches from the New Generation Era.
