The annual event takes place in March or April and brings in scores of wrestling fans. It is an immensely popular show and it has become the longest running event in professional wrestling.

WrestleMania holds great esteem in wrestling circles, since some of the most epic clashes between wrestlers have taken place on this grand stage. Some of the most memorable ones include the iconic Hulk Hogan taking on Andre the Giant, Shawn ‘The Heart Break Kid’ Michaels going up against the legendary Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, and the ‘People’s Champion’ The Rock facing off against the ‘Rattlesnake’ Stone Cold Steve Austin. There have been many career changing moments at WrestleMania, for several wrestlers that catapult their career into unprecedented fame; such is the importance of this classic event.
When Hollywood hulk Hogan faced Andre the Giant, Hogan was on a three year championship reign. Andre the Giant, on the other hand, was reveling in his fifteen year unbeaten streak. They were both pitted against each other at the third WrestleMania and it was obvious that only one would come out as the victor. In the match that ensued Hulk Hogan lifted the Giant off his feet and slammed him against the mat in a slam that was ‘heard around the world’. Hogan then completed his victory over the Frenchman by his signature atomic leg drop. In front of more than ninety thousand spectators, Hulk Hogan made history at the WrestleMania. This match was perhaps the catalyst for future matches that defined the legacy of the biggest stage of them all.
It was just during last year’s WrestleMania that history was rewritten in the WWE. The Undertaker, one of the most revered wrestlers in the WWE bid adieu to his unbeaten WrestleMania Streak. The ‘Dead Man Walking’ was known for having survived twenty one years in WrestleMania without losing a single fight. He had fought off many worthy adversaries which included Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Edge, Randy Orton and none other than his brother, Kane. His streak continued for more than two decades, a record that remained unchanged. However at WrestleMania thirty, a crowd of seventy five thousand was shell shocked to see the Undertaker being pinned to the mat, for the first ever time in the history of WrestleMania, by Brock Lesnar.
