Another massive thank you for your support guys! The interest in these blogs have slowly increased, so thank you for that! Let’s get on with WrestleMania 7 now!
Venue: Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena
Attendance: 16, 158
I loved the logo for this WrestleMania! I just really liked how they made a change at ringside with the American theme, centred around the main event of the evening.
The Nasty Boys vs The Hart Foundation for the WWF Tag Team Championships
The Hart Foundation were super over here! The Hart Foundation had control for the most of this match, but The Nasty Boys kept their hold on the match by keeping the faces down with submissions. After some confusion between The Nasty Boys, Jimmy Hart managed to throw in his helmet to break up a pin for the Hart Foundation, and allow The Nasty Boys to steal the victory. This was an extremely solid tag team match!
The Undertaker vs Jimmy Snuka
I’m covering this one as it was The Undertaker’s debut at WrestleMania, and his first win in the most famous streak in wrestling history. The Undertaker used to actually be so scary, and the visuals from Paul Bearer were second to none! The Undertaker hit the tombstone to end the match in a very short time. Bobby Heenan mentioned “Tombstone City”…
“Macho Man” Randy Savage vs The Ultimate Warrior in a retirement match
The crowd were so split as two of the most influential figures in wrestle history went head to head at WrestleMania with some high stakes on the line! Heel Randy Savage was so fun to watch! This match had the potential for so many sub plots! Savage came down to the ring with Sensational Sherri, but his former valet Miss Elizabeth was sat ringside.
This was honestly one of the best matches I’ve seen so far in this series! Both had a back and forth match up. Savage thought he had one it when he hit 5 beautiful Elbows from the top rope in a row to Warrior, only to have him kick out! The Ultimate Warrior then hit the Big Splash on The Macho Man, but he also kicked out! The crowd was going wild at this moment! The Warrior wrapped this one up by hitting a couple of shoulder barges, and simply pinning Randy Savage with one foot. The career of Randy Savage was over.
After the match, Sensational Sherri showed her disappointment in Savage by getting in a couple of kicks on the already beaten down body of his. This made Miss Elizabeth climb over the barricade and save her former partner. When the Macho Man got back up, him and Miss Elizabeth rekindled their relationship with a hug, and a huge roar from the crowd. While Randy Savage did move to a commentary role, he didn’t officially retire, making sporadic appearances in WWE, and then of course a run in WCW. This was one of the best WrestleMania matches ever I would say.
Hulk Hogan vs Sgt. Slaughter for the WWF Championship
Sgt. Slaughter’s heel turn has to be one of the most well done heel turns in history. He was super over supporting the American cause until his last dying breathe, but in 1990 he decided to turn against the great country, and side with Iraqi General Adnan. Such a simple, but so damn effective heel turn! Of course, this prompted Hulk Hogan to try and stop Sgt.
Hulk Hogan got hit with a steel chair by Slaughter, and had one of the most obvious blades ever! This led to some pretty cool shots of Sgt. Slaughter having a bloody Hulk Hogan in a Camel Clutch. Slaughter draped the Iraq flag on Hogan and pinned him, only for Hogan to kick out and tear the flag up. He then hit the Big Boot and the Leg Drop to win the WWF Championship for the third time.
This match was pretty good towards the end, but it was a little too boring for my liking at times in the middle. The ending was pretty entertaining though, I loved the flag being ripped! That match of the night was most definitely Warrior vs Savage however!
