WrestleMania III
When it comes to WWE’s biggest event of the year, WrestleMania, none felt bigger than WrestleMania III, even if the announced attendance of 93,173 fans has been disputed. The crowd-puller was the clash between Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant — possibly the biggest WWF match in the peak of ‘80s Hulkamania.
Royal Rumble 1992
The 1992 Royal Rumble saw Ric Flair lasting a full hour in the show’s titular match, winning the Rumble as well as the World Title in a unique twist. Outside the ring, announcer Bobby Heenan matched Flair minute for minute with some of the greatest announcing ever, balancing between hope and despair depending on Ric’s in-ring performance.
WrestleMania X
WrestleMania X featured a Ladder match between Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels for the Intercontinental Title — the bout that made the ladder gimmick popular at the WWE. The other match that WM X is famed for is the explosion of the months-long sibling rivalry between Owen and Bret Hart, with the devious Owen coming up on top of the heroic Bret.
In Your House 16
WWE’s In Your House 16: Canadian Stampede featured matches like Mankind vs. HHH having a post-match brawl and Vader vs. Undertaker in a world title match. However, nothing came close to the main event, with the Hart Foundation taking on the Americans, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in an electric atmosphere.
Royal Rumble 2000
Royal Rumble 2000 at Madison Square Garden saw Taz choke out Kurt Angle on his WWE debut, and The Hardys and Dudleys go to war in a tables match, but nothing topped HHH vs. Cactus Jack for the World Title. Finally, the chaotic night came to an end with The Rock earning his ticket to WrestleMania by winning the Rumble.
