SLAM! Wrestling has an article on Rick Martel talking about his memories from WrestleMania. “The Model” competed at WrestleMania every single year from 1987 through 1992. He was scheduled to compete at WrestleMania X, but his multi-tag match was pulled due to time constraints. “I was disappointed, of course,” said Martel. “But I was more disappointed for the other guys, because I remember that there were a lot of rookies in the match, and some of them had their families there to see them in Madison Square Garden. It was their first Wrestlemania, and they were excited to the max. I was disappointed to a point, but I had been in a few Wrestlemanias. I wanted to be in there for sure, but I didn’t make a big deal out of it.”
