The return of the Ultimate Warrior...
Not when he came back to help Hogan, versus Sid Justice, but when Warrior came back and destroyed Triple H.
Warrior's music hits, the pop is unbelievable, one of the best ovations in Mania history.
Warrior destroys Triple H like Hogan would destroy the Brooklyn Brawler.
Why this is significant?
This is probably Triple H's worst defeat, given how much time it took for Warrior to dismantle him. I got two words for you if you're not down with the Ultimate Warrior, GET LOST.
PCH comes in peace, no reason to delete my account, Mods.

I'll be glad to.
Never could stand the Warriyah. Useless in the ring, and only Rick Rude seems to have ever been able to drag a decent match out of him.
Top Moment for me?
Benwaa and Eddie hoisting titles over their head at Mania. The era of the giant monoliths are over, and maybe- just maybe we can get some great matches for the titles with Jericho, RVD, Kurt, Booker T, Edge and Christian working for the titles. - Plus Shawn and HHH were having more fun as a tag team.
Plus with gOLDBURG and Lesnar gone- Almost the only giant stiffs around were Kane and Undertaker in the UpperCard.
Maybe Benwaa and Eddie could rule the Fed for a year- and at Mania 21 we would get the mega-matchup to rival Savage/Steamboat in Mania history.
(Didn't happen- but we had hope that night)

Hogan beating my boy Sgt. Slaughter.
The Gulf War was going on during this time, and Sgt. Slaughter acted like an Iraqi sympathizer. Sgt. Slaughter sold this fued with ease. Arguably one of the best heel gimmicks the WWF/E's, ever HAD. I don't need to post youtubes, or show his interviews, which were legendary. "You meggget".
Hogan at the time was preaching, "USA, USA, USA", more so than, "eat your vitamins, brother", and was making Hacksaw Jim Duggan look like your weird elementary school janitor.
The plot was thick between these two Legends.
WWE literally was using Hogan as an inspiration for our country, at a time of war. There's really nothing in my eyes that tops that. Maybe being so young, it means a little more, but besides the leg drop and cobra clutch being a zzzzzzzzzzz fest, LA was rockin.
Hogan nails deathly leg, it's a wrap. USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my last pick with the "warriyah" was WM 12.
Trying to spread these out a little.
NC, you read about Sting coming back the night after 'Mania, and your boy, Hogan, coming back for the 30th edition?

I could care less about what the Orange Goblin does, and few things have made me happier that watching Sting bleed all over the ring at the hands of Flair in a steel cage.
You do know that Hogan/Sgt sold so poorly they MOVED IT TO A SMALLER ARENA, right? Only time in WM history they have had to move it due to shatty sales.
My number 2 moment was a "you had to be a fan at the time" moment.
Bret Hart getting Ghetto-Blasted at WM 4.
I could take the moment of Savage winning the title, but again the Goblin would not let him have his moment,
But at the time, you had no Andre, so you didn't know who was going to win, and there was some TALENT in that ring Harley Race, JYD, and a slew of tag teams- many whom had challenged for the title and several who had held the straps.
And Bad News Brown. Acted like New Jack without the goofy dancing and shopping cart. Just came to the ring and whupped arse.
BH and Brown dump JYD, and we might have another member of the Hart Foundation, a growing collection of talent
and Bret comes back and busts up the trophy- starting his turn.

Def. remember that. Bad News Brown was the truth. Roddy Piper vs Bad News Brown was one of my favorite matches, where Piper was half white/ half black.
Those two put on a SHOW...
for my last pick though, NC, I've got your FAVORITE rastler of ALL TIME, BIG SLOW...
a.k.a Big Show...
You know, the "biggest/best athlete in sports entertainment". bahahahaha
His finisher right now is the knockout punch, guess where he got it from?
None other than Floyd "Money" Mayweather. He copyied that fool.
WrestleMania 24... Floyd knocked out Big Slow with the brass knuckles.
It was the equivalent of Rey Mysterio pinning Andre the Giant. Mayweather played a GREAT heel, was very surprised, and Big Show getting knocked out cold by him should never be forgotten.

Why I keep coming back to Fannation .
We got Pch kneeling before the Golbin, People with no comments/TD/history voting in droves, and discussion threads having no bearing on the TD at hand in the comments.
1. I would avoid Clowney- let someone give me some picks and be their motivation issue.
2. One day Peach is going to learn about the NBA.
My final Pick.
Liz saving Savage from Sistah Sherri.
