FighterHayabusa’s Top 5 Wrestlemania Moments

April 5, 2013

[repost from 2011]

5. HBK loses to Undertaker in their WrestleMania rematch


Mascara De Fuego: Great emotional moment, every time I think back to this match I think of HBK standing in the middle of the ring saying thank you to the crowd. A moment that was built over TWO YEARS something unheard of from the WWE!

Great Puma: This is one of my favorite WrestleMania endings in recent history. As soon as the ref counted to three, I immediately missed Shawn Michaels. It meant the ending of an era of one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time. As much as wrestling is a work, this moment was all real and Shawn Michaels’ heartfelt gestures at the end of the match put this moment over the top.

4. Stone Cold winning the WWE Title at WrestleMania 14


Mascara De Fuego: Without question the beginning of what the WWE would call the “attitude era”. Stone Cold brought the WWE into the forefront of the industry once again and it all started here. The addition of Mike Tyson did wonders for the WWE and no moment captured this than Tyson taking off his DX shirt and knocking out HBK. Now as a pro wrestling fan it was not my personal favorite to see that but I knew it was right for the business.

Great Puma: This was Stone Cold barely reaching his peak. Stone Cold pinning HBK, followed by Mike Tyson’s knockout punch, catapulted the WWE into the second golden age of pro wrestling since the late 80’s. It was a great moment for wrestling fans who couldn’t be more happier to see Stone Cold finally get what he deserved.

CM Punk’s Eddie Guerrero Tribute

September 25, 2011

I first saw this beautiful story on wrestlinginc.com. CM Punk grabbed the mic in front of the El Paso, Texas crowd this weekend and gave this touching tribute to Eddie Guerrero.

CM Punk gave props the El Paso crowd and told them how much the locker room appreciates all their chants. He then said he was lucky to have the opportunity to wrestle in front of them and to have known Eddie Guerrero and to call him ‘friend.’ Here are some excerpts from his moving speech:

“We all lose people who we care about. That we can all share in common. When I think of El Paso I think of one man. (Huge “EDDIE” chants)

“Nobody ever really dies as long as the people who he or she touched continue to spread their legacy and preached what they preached.”

“I miss Eddie Guerrero. Eddie Guerrero was a great man. So right now I don’t want to hear the name “CM Punk.” You know the name I want to hear.” (The crowd chants “EDDIE” as CM Punk walks out.)

5 Years ago today…

November 13, 2010

… We lost a true wrestling great in Eddie Guerrero. It’s still a surreal feeling not to have him around.

In celebration of his life here is one of his biggest career wins, defeating Brock Lesnar for the WWE Title.

 

Rest in Peace Eddie.
