This is our DVD review for WWE Best Of WrestleMania Main Events, a self-explanatory celebration of WrestleMania‘s most memorable headline attractions. This is the latest DVD review for our site. So, let’s see what we think of Best Of WrestleMania Main Events!

WWE Best Of WrestleMania Main Events

Disc One

Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant from WrestleMania III seems slower than ever but is no less historic. And it achieves more in its bell-to-bell running time than almost any other match in the 34 years since. The Iron Man match between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XII is very divisive. And I would argue that it’s a dodgy choice on a two-disc set at a time when few match compilations get a release. Nevertheless, it’s compelling stuff, particularly for Shawn’s infamous zip wire entrance and the closing minutes of the bout itself. Then we come to a true classic in The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin from WrestleMania X-Seven. Indeed, it’s one of the all-time great main event matches, and the Austin heel turn remains a major talking point.

Moving on, Kurt Angle vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XIX is a strong outing, though it does serve up plenty of “what if’s”. Namely, what if Kurt wasn’t nursing injuries, and what if Brock hadn’t almost paralysed himself with a Shooting Star Press. Regardless, though, it’s a worthy inclusion, as is John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels from WrestleMania 23. Now, this bout barely receives any referencing from WWE nowadays, which is odd considering the stage and the combatants. Yet it’s an awesome clash and possibly the most underrated WM main event of them all. Then, we get to see Edge at his best as he faces The Undertaker during his Streak-defending prime at WrestleMania XXIV. If this is new to you, then it’s a must-see match and a perfect example of The Streak’s significance.

Disc Two

Furthermore, The Streak forms the basis for what is probably, from a work-rate standpoint, the absolute greatest WrestleMania main event of all. That would be Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXVI, with the drama, stakes and quality at the highest level. Next up, we revisit a modern triumph as Daniel Bryan gets his crowning moment at WrestleMania XXX. But don’t overlook the efforts of Randy Orton and Batista, who put on a show themselves in this three-way clash. Nevertheless, Bryan owns the show, and his long-awaited “proper” WWE Title win caps off the most memorable storyline of the past decade.

Now for something completely different, as Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns absolutely destroy one another at WrestleMania 31. More so Brock pounding Roman, to be fair, though, Reigns does split open Lesnar’s skull. But of course, the moment belongs to Seth Rollins, who cashes in Money In The Bank in unforgettable fashion. Finally, we have Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch from WrestleMania 35. Historically, this one has merit, but rounding off what was a 5 ½ hour PPV event, it struggles to maintain fan interest. Hopefully, Becky and Ronda finally get their singles clash at some point in time. WrestleMania 38, perhaps?

Analysis

The Rock vs. John Cena from WrestleManias XXVIII and 29 are noticeable absentees in terms of any notable omissions. Surely there was an opportunity to squeeze in at least one of their clashes (most likely 28)? Otherwise, I can’t think of too many surprising exclusions, at least with this not being a three-disc set. Had there been a third disc, I would also advocate the main events for WM I, WM V, WM VI, WM XIV and WM 22. But since the days of three-disc match compilations are apparently behind us, perhaps that’s wishful thinking on my part. And that’s a shame because, with a third disc, this becomes an essential collection.

Best Of WrestleMania Main Events Summary

Despite the familiarity of the content and the minimal running time, Best Of WrestleMania Main Events is a thoroughly entertaining two-disc set. To me, this works well as an introduction for new fans to the legacy of WrestleMania. After all, most longtime fans have almost certainly seen most of these bouts in some form. And even if they haven’t, the WWE Network serves that purpose. But if you want a snapshot of top WM headline clashes, then this is a DVD worth checking out.

Overall Rating: 8.5/10 – Excellent
