56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania 1’s Best Matches: Results

On a mostly lackluster card – including squash matches with the Executioner, Matt Borne and Special Delivery Jones – it’s no surprise that the top two vote-getters for WrestleMania 1 include the top talent on the card at that time (wait, you couldn’t have trotted out skinny Bret Hart for one match?). Hulk Hogan, Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper could pull the weight of an entire roster if need be, including a barely-trained Mr. T. Add to that the question of an aging Andre the Giant being able to bodyslam a 6’10”, 380-lb. Big John Studd, and you have enough star power to carry this card. Put these matches on top at WrestleMania 29, and you might get a riot. But for 1985, this is the best of what we got!
