I take umberage with Foley never having a good Wrestlemania match. I thought he did the best he could do with 2000. I think that match would have gone down as the best ever if not for the end. I bought the DVD a few months ago. I still have trouble sitting through it espically when Mick turns on Rock for no reason. Once that happened the first time, I knew who was going to win, but to this day I still don't understand why. Especially after Rock did SNL a week or two before cementing him in the mainstream media as the champion.
A Fan- Sorry, but I don't blame Mick for that I blame Vince and HHH for that one.
Wrestlemania X7 holds three matches I like, Austin/Rock, Vince/Shane, Angle/Beniot. However my FAVORITE match would definitly be Warrior/Savage.
"Monsoon, look! He isn't running, he's WALKING! When have we EVER seen Warrior walking to the ring? We usually see him running down acting like a fool, but he's not doing that Monsoon, he's walking. That's how important this is!"

These aren't matches, but I just watched last year's Mania and saw some funny vignettes. -The Rock and Coach. Coach praying "Wassup, G?" Rock totally losing it "What in the blue hell..?"
-I had totally forgotten about this one, Hurricane wins the Hardcore belt and uses a broomstick to fend off attackers. He hides behind the screen. In come the Godfather's Ho's asking if their breasts were too big. Hurricane shaking his head "no". Then comes the sight gag with the shadow and the broom. It was just like an "Austin Powers" movie. Hilarious.
It's no wonder the Rock and Hurricane were so good together backstage. I hope we see more from these two.
In my mind, no doubt. WMIII Macho Man/Stemboat. The build-up to this match was great with Savage as the ultra-heel. I'll never forget in the months leading up to the match, Macho Man taking out Steamboats throat with the ring bell. The great heel announcing of Jesse the Body. George the Animal Steele (the original Mr. Shave your Back), and top it all off Miss Elizabeth at ringside!!! As j9479 said earlier that match still holds up to this day.

That was a sad main event. Angle looks in great shape. His definition is superb. But the slow pace of every element makes it look more like a semblance of a wrestling show instead of an earnest competitor to the WWE.
