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

Here they are, the top two matches from WrestleMania VII: Superstars and Stripes Forever! The easy first-place winner is Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage in a career match with an ending that either brings tears to everyone’s eyes, or their shoes are on too tight. Second place took a little prodding but went to the underrated tag team title match between the Hart Foundation and the Nasty Boys, managed by Jimmy Hart, who of course “knows all your weaknesses,” Hart Foundation! Cackle cackle cackle! (Come on, even at 11 years old, who didn’t think it was suspect that Jimmy Hart was wearing a motorcycle helmet to ringside?)

56 Days of WrestleMania – WrestleMania VII’s Best Matches

Stars and Stripes Forever! WrestleMania VII brought with it probably the most controversial headlining angle in WM history: Sgt. Slaughter as an Iraqi sympathizer during the Gulf War defending the WWF Title against real American Hulk Hogan. It drew so few people that WWF moved WrestleMania from its original location, the 100,000-seat Los Angeles Coliseum, to the 15,000-seat L.A. Sports Arena, and blamed it on “security reasons.” Did the match live up to the hype? Do any other matches qualify for best? (One, I’d argue.) Vote now!
