Professional Wrestling: What is your opinion on World Wrestling Entertainment's Wrestlemania I?
World Wrestling Entertainment's Wrestlemania I March 31, 1985, the Pay-Per View that started it all.
Tito Santana Vs. The Executioner: Eh.
David Sammartino w/ Bruno Sammartino Vs. Brutus Beefcake w/ Luscious Johnny Valiant: David Sammartino looked really solid much like his father, unique look at Brutus Beefcake before becoming 'The Barber' and he was decent enough in this match although David Sammartino clearly out shined him in this match.
Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat Vs. Matt Borne: Poor Steamboat, this match was a wreck.
King Kong Bundy w/ Jimmy Hart Vs. Special Delivery Jones: Grease Stain, nice old fashion squash match.
Bodyslam Challenge: Andre the Giant Vs. Big John Studd: Clearly not the best match on the card, but it stands out none the less; helped by Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan for Professional Wrestlers Andre The Giant and Big John Studd's Size this match was relatively decent.
Junkyard Dog Vs. Greg "The Hammer" Valentine w/ Jimmy Hart: Nice win for the JYD, Jimmy Hart is on a roll.
Nikolai Volkoff & Iron Sheik w/ Classy Freddie Blassie Vs. Mike Rotundo & Barry Windham W/ 'Captain Lou' Albano: Best Match Of The Night, This match stole the show helped a lot by two of the greatest professional wrestling managers of all time 'Classy' Freddie Blassie and 'Captain Lou' Albano.
Wendi Richter w/ Cyndi Lauper Vs. Leilani Kai w/ Fabulous Moolah: That Hammerlock throwdown by Wendi Richter was beautiful, this match was rather solid.
Celebrity Role Call:
Billy Martin - Guest Ring Announcer
Liberace - Guest Timekeeper
Muhammad Ali - Outside Referee Enforcer
Hulk Hogan and Mr. T w/ "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka Vs. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff w/ Cowboy Bob Orton: Mr. T didn't look half bad in this match, everyone else looked solid enough; nice finish for the first Wrestlemania;
Nice Note: Pat Patterson was the Referee for the Main Event of the first Wrestlemania.

can I do the cliche internet elitist gimmick and say that anything before WM3 is garbage? yeah that is what I'm doing. We all know Roddy Piper and Mr. T carried the card and the main event. All of the Piper & Orton segments on WWF tv were gold! Mr. T being in Rocky 3 was a big deal......Hogan guest star on A-Team was a big deal.
the rest of the celebrities were meh.....outside of THE GREATEST boxer none of them are special to me.
Billy Martin - okay big deal baseball manager
Liberace - gay
The Rockettes - gotta have the dancing gimmick!!!!!
