The 5 Best And 5 Worst WWE WrestleMania Rematches Of All Time
By SERGIO PEREIRA
Best: HBK Vs. Undertaker
Shawn Michaels faced the Undertaker at WrestleMania 25, and the Deadman’s fabled WrestleMania streak came close to being broken, but ‘Taker persevered. The following year, Michaels faced ‘Taker again, this time putting his career on the line, but after 24 minutes, Undertaker pinned HBK, forcing him to retire.
Worst: Rock Vs. Cena
The clash between John Cena and The Rock at WrestleMania 28 was billed as a “once in a lifetime” match, with Rock coming out victorious. The two squared off again the next year, only for Cena to pin The Rock and take away his title — a title that rightfully belonged to Punk before WWE made him drop it to Rock at that year’s Royal Rumble.
Best: Lesnar Vs. Reigns
The audience reaction for the two times that babyface Roman Reigns faced Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania main events was tepid at best. However, when Reigns adopted the heel Tribal Chief persona going into WrestleMania 38, the audience was pumped for the unification bout of the WWE Championship and WWE Universal Championship.
Worst: Hart Vs. Yokozuna
When Bret Hart and Yokozuna clashed at WrestleMania 9 for the WWF Championship, Mr. Fuji’s interference helped Yokozuna claim the gold. Suddenly, Hulk Hogan came in and squashed Yoko within 30 seconds to win the belt, making both Hart and Yokozuna look weak, while Hogan was lauded as a superhero of sorts.
Best: Rock Vs. Austin
The Rock and Steve Austin have squared off thrice at WrestleMania, making history each time. Austin picked up the first win at WM XV and sided with McMahon mid-match at X-Seven to cheat his way to victory. They met for the last time at WM XIX, where Rock came out victorious, with the audience appreciating both men as it signaled the end of an era.
