For sentimental reasons, WM 3 has always been the highmark of Wrestlemanias. It had a great undercard,the feel of the Silver Dome something large going on and of course, Hogan/Andre. It was great.
However, Wrestlemania X-7 is the closest one I have ever seen to reach that level and maybe even surpass it. It had an unbelievable undercard and one of the greatest main events ever. I would have like to seen a face win, but the Austin turn was needed and should have been done on a grand stage.
A Fan- Wrestlemania is the showcase of the immortals.

I liked WM2000, mostly because I was there live (it was my first PPV event ever) and enjoyed the show. Benoit-Angle-Jericho was great, TLC beta was amazing (and I still like it best out of all the TTOEAC-Hardyz-Dudleyz matches) and once again, Pete Rose got killed by Kane.
It was a good show(!!!LOL), but just not the greatest WrestleMania ever.
RADIO EDIT: Since I forgot, mah favorite WM moments..
WM3: Davey Boy Smith absolutely kills Danny Davis dead, right there in the Silverdome, with a vicious Tombstone piledriver. WM3: Hogan v. Andre. Nuff said. (THAT WAS THREE, DAMMIT!) WM4: Bad News Brown doublecrosses Bret Hart to win the battle royal WM4: Randy Savage wins the WWF Title WM5: Rick Rude's tights (with the Intercontinental title belt already airbrushed on them) WM5: The Megapowers Explode! WM6: Hunka Hunka Honky Love! WM6: Hogan v. Warrior. Again, nuff said. WM7: Savage and Elizabeth reunite. WM8: The entire Savage-Flair saga. WM8: Sid Justice has to kick out of Hogan's legdrop because Papa Shango's too damn slow. WM9: Double Doink! (It's an ILLUSION) WM9: Bret Hart actually gets the Sharpshooter on Yokozuna. WM10: Bret v. Owen. WM10: Razor v. Shawn. WM10: Bret flukes his way into beating Yokozuna. WM11: Jenny McCarthy's outfit.
WM11: Owen's partner is Yokozuna. WM12: Undertaker beats Diesel. Sosumi, I enjoyed it. WM12: Steve Austin beats Savio Vega with..waitforit..the Million Dollar Chinlock! WM12: Shawn v. Bret. WM13: Austin v. Bret, duh WM13: LOD/Ahmed Johnson v. the NOD, which was WAY better than it had any right to be. WM14: "THAT'S PETE ROSE! PETE ROSE! JUST GOT TOMBSTONED!" WM14: Austin v. Michaels. WM15: Pete Rose gives it another whirl as the San Diego Chicken and fares just as well this time. WM15: Edge gets stuck halfway up his zipline and just twirls around, smiling all the way WM2K: Pete Rose dies. Again. WM2K: TLC beta, oh my. WM2K: Benoit and Jericho win Angle's belts without beating Angle WMX7: Angle v. Benoit. WMX7: The Van Shaneinator. WMX7: TLC II. WMX7: Taker-Triple H. WMX7: The gimmick battle royal, great just for the entrances WMX7: "STONE COLD HAS SHOOK HANDS WITH SATAN HIMSELF!"
Wrestlemania 2000 sucked! From the cat fight to the wretched main event, it bit the big one. And to give The Rock the title a few weeks later at Backlash when I paid $35.00 to see it happen at WM2K, what a retarded decision. I don't care about the triple threat Euro-Continental match or the Triangle Ladder match. Now Wrestlemania X-Seven was a classic. EVERYTHING ROCKED! TLC2, Undertaker vs. Triple H, The Gimmick Battle Royal, Benoit vs. Angle, Shane vs. Vince, and Rock vs. Austin. To me, that's how you do a pay-per-view, something for everyone. It was great. Everything from the arena, to the logo, and yes even "My Way" as the theme song. I have the entire event on tape and it still gives me chills when I watch it. I consider it and still do to be the greatest pay-per-view of all time, and the end of the Attitude era. Let's hope to another classic at Wrestlemania X-8.
That Kane/Bryan/Edge/Sandow opening was amazing. I'm not actually that big of a fan of Edge's comedy in the past, but he slotted in brilliantly. 1/2 an hour of sports entertainment perfection, with a solid match to tie it all together.
