We are almost a month away from the 30th edition of Wrestlemania; the grandest stage in all of sports entertainment. This years spectacle promises to feature many stars past and present, and with the 30th anniversary of this transcendent event approaching, I thought I would take a nostalgic look back through time and rank the first 15 Manias.
12. Wrestlemania II (1986, Chiago, New York, Los Angeles). The second version of Wrestlemania was just as large of a gamble as the first one was the previous year. The WWF put this event on from three different locations and also provided the show on closed circuit television all over the U.S. The card had its moments including Chicago Bears legend William "The Refrigerator" Perry competing in a battle royal and Rowdy Roddy Piper fighting Mr. T in a boxing match. The main event featured Hulk Hogan vs. monster heel King Kong Bundy in a cage match which was solid if not somewhat unspectacular. Overall, this was quite a production for the WWF at the time and it set the standard for what was to come.
