WrestleMania has been providing WWE fans with unforgettable moments for more than 30 years. It’s a sport filled with thrills, drama, and unbelievable spectacle. Year after year this event has delivered memories for fans that will last a lifetime.

Fans love to debate what year was the best WrestleMania. With so many personalities and crazy matches, it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite. With that in mind, let’s take a look at just a few of the best moments of WrestleMania history.

Top 10 Best WrestleMania Moments That Shocked The World

If you’re an avid fan of WrestleMania, you know the excitement is frequent and warranted. Some of the best WrestleMania moments in history were real shockers, even beyond the normal excitement. Check out WWE’s top 10 most shocking moments to date.

1. Hulk Hogan Gets Pinned Clean by The Ultimate Warrior

Going into WrestleMania 6, the smart money was on Hulk Hogan. Since his first championship in 1984, when he beat The Iron Sheik, Hogan had never lost a clean match. This is why it was shocking when The Ultimate Warrior beat him cleanly with a Big Splash and press slam.

2. Roddy Piper Returns

WWE fans were shocked to see the return of Roddy Piper at WrestleMania 19. The moment seemed totally random, given the build toward the matchup between Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan for that year’s event.

It was during the middle of this showcase match, while both Hogan and McMahon were down, that Piper stepped into the ring. The crowd went nuts as he spat on the two men, then smacked Hogan in the head with a pipe. The moment was shocking and totally cool.

Check out this list of the 5 biggest WWE wrestlers.

3. Mick Foley and Edge Go Through Flames

Fans expected any match featuring Mick Foley vs. the Edge to be brutal. Yet nothing could have prepared them for this moment.

The match had already included barbed wire and thumbtacks, but the crowd was shocked when Lita suddenly doused a table with lighter fluid and set it on fire. The match then got out of control when Edge speared Mick Foley through the ropes, both men tumbling onto the table and through the flames.

4. Hulk Hogan Walks Out as Champ at WrestleMania 9

At this point in his career, Hogan had been relegated to the mid card, having faced a number of challenges, including allegations of performance-enhancing drug use. He had simply come out to the ring to check on his friend Bret Hart after Mr. Fuji had thrown salt into Bret’s eyes.

Mr. Fuji began taunting Hogan, and Yokozuna challenged him to fight, so Hogan climbed into the ring and promptly defeated Yokozuna in the impromptu match. Hogan exited triumphantly, quickly returning to the top of the card.

5. Miss Elizabeth Returns

This was truly one of the most shocking and emotional moments in WrestleMania history. Following a match between the Ultimate Warrior and Macho King Randy Savage, the announcer pointed out that Miss Elizabeth was seated in the crowd.

After Savage lost the match and was down, his manager Queen Sherri started kicking him, prompting Elizabeth to run to the ring and pull Sherri off him. It was so emotional because Randy and Elizabeth hadn’t seen each other in a couple of years.

6. WrestleMania XXX

This was the moment that featured The Rock, Hulk Hogan, and Steve Austin. These three had never been in the same ring together before, aside from a throwaway moment.

As Hogan came out to kick things off as host, Austin interrupted him. This made the crowd lose their minds. The Rock hadn’t been advertised for the event, so his presence made fans lose their minds.

Even though the three of them didn’t get physical, having them in the ring together was a truly monumental moment.

7. Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 31

Seth Rollins made a huge statement at WrestleMania 31. This was the first time since WrestleMania 9 that someone not even advertised to compete, walked out as champion.

Rollins cashed in and defeated both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. It was a last minute decision to have Rollins win the title, making it one of the most shocking WWF moments ever.

8. Steve Austin Joins Forces with Vince McMahon

It might not seem like such a big deal now, but way back at WrestleMania 17, the notion of McMahon helping his worst enemy win the championship seemed inconceivable.

These two men had one of the greatest professional wrestling rivalries of all time. So it was a huge shock when McMahon came out during the match between Austin and The Rock, to help Austin take the victory.

9. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX

When Brock Lesnar stepped into the ring and ended The Undertaker’s streak at WrestleMania XXX, it was the end of the greatest streak in wrestling history.

It’s unlikely that a streak like that will ever be replicated. Even more shocking was the sudden manner in which The Undertaker lost. By far one of the most shocking moments in wrestling history, it felt as though all the air had been let out of the building.

10. The Ultimate Warrior’s Return at WrestleMania 8

Vince McMahon fired The Ultimate Warrior at Summerslam 1991, and he seemed to have disappeared. So it was shocking to hear The Ultimate Warrior music cue during a WrestleMania 8 match when Hulk Hogan was being double teamed by Sid Justice and Papa Shango.

Warrior cleaned house, posing with Hogan at the end of the match. Fans loved seeing the two icons together in the ring.

The love didn’t last long though. Warrior was again fired later that same year.

The Ultimate Pro Wrestling Event

WrestleMania is the event that transformed professional wrestling. True fans of the sport might never agree on which was the best WrestleMania of all time, but they can agree that each one has been awesome.

The best moments of WWE have all the elements of great drama. Filled with spectacle, violence, and unforgettable personalities, it’s an event that has created dozens of wrestling legends.
