The one that started it all
1 January 2003 | by Eraser81See all my reviews

March 31, 1985, Wrestlemania was born!!

Hulk Hogan and Mr. T squared off against Rowdy Roddy Piper and Mr Wonderful Paul Orndorff. The very first main event of a Wrestlemania. Truly memorable.

The Executioner got kicked over the top rope, but landed right on a chair!! Classic!
