WrestleMania HistoryIn the world of professional wrestling, no event is bigger than WrestleMania. Once a year, the biggest names in pro wrestling’s WWE converge on one spot for the massive event, which includes the all-important WWE World Heavyweight Championship fight. They’re joined by celebrities, the press, and – of course – tens of thousands of die-hard wrestling fans. It’s one of the biggest live events in all of sports, and it’s far and away the highlight of the pro wrestling year. For wrestling fans, WrestleMania tickets are passports to the ultimate WWE experience.
And WrestleMania isn’t just some flash-in-the-pan fad – the event has the weight of history behind it, too. The annual event has been running continuously since 1985, and over the decades it has seen some of the most iconic moments in the history of the WWE. It has drawn record crowds and has featured great matches through good times and bad. Throughout WrestleMania’s run, it’s been a consistent fan favorite and one of the biggest live events in all of sports. Today, it remains as important and popular as ever.
The story of WrestleMania begins in the mid-1980s. The WWE (which was then called the WWF) had been around for half a decade at that point, and the organization had already grown by attracting star wrestlers from competitor organizations like the AWA and NWA. But it was the groundbreaking idea of WrestleMania that would take the WWE’s success into the stratosphere and establish it clearly as the most important wrestling league. The idea of a super-event for wrestling came from Vince McMahon, the head of WWE and the man most responsible for its rise. The name “WrestleMania” came from ring announcer (and former wrestling star) Howard Finkel. McMahon and his WWE team put it all together and began to plan the first WrestleMania in the mid-1980s. The very first WrestleMania would take place in 1985, when the WWF was five years old.
The inaugural event was like nothing that wrestling had ever seen before. The event was held at Madison Square Garden in New York City and featured a tag-team match of Hulk Hogan and Mr. T against Roddy Piper and Paul Omdorff. The star-studded event was a massive success and was by far the biggest event in the history of the WWF. McMahon immediately set about planning the follow-up, which would be even bigger and better than the original WrestleMania.
WrestleMania 2 was expanded to include multiple events at multiple venues. One match each was held in the New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles areas, and the entire event led up to the ultimate match for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship (which featured Hulk Hogan beating King Kong Bundy in a steel cage match). Like its predecessor, WrestleMania 2 was a big hit.
Just two years into its existence, WrestleMania was already one of the biggest events in sports, and fans rushed to buy tickets in record numbers. In 1987, WrestleMania III set a world record in Detroit by attracting an incredible 93,173 paying fans – more than had ever before attended an indoor sporting event. That record stood for more than 20 years before it was finally topped by the 2010 NBA All-Star Game. The Detroit event was a massive success that included the Intercontinental Championship between Randy Savage and Ricky Steamboat, a match that is widely regarded as one of the greatest in professional wrestling history.
WrestleMania left the United States for the first time in 1990, when WrestleMania VI was held at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada. The international excursion was a sign of WrestleMania’s expanding popularity: the entire continent of North America seemed to want WrestleMania tickets.
But not enough of those tickets were sold the following year, when WrestleMania experienced one of its few setbacks. Thanks in part to security concerns over Sgt. Slaughter’s Gulf War-related storyline, attendance dropped in 1991. The event, originally planned for Los Angeles’ Memorial Coliseum, was moved next door to the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena to accommodate the smaller crowd. But the smaller crowd witnessed history as the Undertaker won his first WrestleMania match. The Undertaker would go on to win an incredible 21 matches in a row before finally falling from the ranks of the undefeated at WrestleMania XXX.
WrestleMania IX became the first WrestleMania ever held at an outdoor venue in 1993. Fans packed the venue at Caesars Palace in Paradise, Nevada, and witnessed an incredible show in which the title belt changed hands twice – something that had never happened before and has never happened since.
By the late 1990s, WrestleMania was as big as ever. Huge celebrities made appearances at the event, including Mike Tyson, who appearance at WrestleMania XIV in 1998. That event is also sometimes cited as the beginning of the Attitude Era, when the WWE (then still known as the WWF) began to feature more adult-oriented programming.
The new, harder-edged WrestleMania brought the event to new heights of popularity. The early 2000s saw the reign of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and the rise of new stars like The Rock, who feuded with Stone Cold. The event celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2005 with WrestleMania XX, which, like the first WrestleMania, was held in Madison Square Garden. In 2008, WrestleMania XXIV featured a now-legendary matchup between Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair.
The 2010s continued WrestleMania’s run of success. The event celebrated its 30th anniversary with WrestleMania XXX, which brought the event to Louisiana for the first time. In the New Orleans Superdome, fans watched in shock as the Undertakers 21-0 undefeated streak came to an end against Brock Lesnar. It was 2014, thirty years after the first WrestleMania – and the spirit of the event was still alive and well.
Today, WrestleMania tickets remain the most coveted tickets in all of professional wrestling. Fans from all over the country flock to WrestleMania to see their heroes (and some villains) compete for the ultimate WWE honor. In pro wrestling, no event is biggest than WrestleMania: it has the biggest stars, the biggest fights, and the biggest crowds. Too bad it only comes once a year.
