As of this writing, there have been well over 400 WrestleMania matches since the event began back in 1985. Since then, countless WWE wrestlers (and even a couple celebrities) have battled it out in so many different ways and with quality that runs the gamut from unwatchable to undeniable. In what is supposed to be WWE’s biggest annual show, some matches fall short, but others rise to the occasion and put together some unforgettable performances.

But today we’re celebrating the very best matches WrestleMania has ever offered wrestling fans. But first, some ground rules. First, as there are so many WrestleManias to cover, we are only going to allow one entry per event. The modern shows with two nights of festivities will only count as one combined event. Second, to keep things from becoming repetitive, there will be no match redundancies. If two wrestlers battled it out in multiple WrestleManias, only one of those matches can be on the list.

Without further ado, here are our picks for the very best WrestleMania matches of all time…

15. Bret Hart vs. Roddy Piper (WrestleMania VIII)

WrestleMania VIII was a slog of a show carried by two fantastic matches. There was Randy Savage winning the WWF Championship off Ric Flair, and then there was this match for the Intercontinental Championship. The Hitman and The Hot Rod had an absolutely awesome face vs. face clinic that may have been Bret’s best match during his midcarder run.
