If you haven’t checked out my WrestleMania 10 look back, then be sure to read it now! Thanks for the support on these guys! Lets get straight into WrestleMania 11..
Venue: Hartford Civic Center
Razor Ramon vs Jeff Jarrett for the Intercontinental Championship
What was Jeff Jarrett wearing here? And the commentators called Jarrett “Double J” way too much. It was interesting to see the Roadie in Jarrett’s corner and the 1-2-3 Kid in Ramon’s corner – they would of course team as part of D-Generation X during the attitude era as Road Dogg and X Pac. This match wasn’t actually that bad. It was a solid performance from both. Jeff Jarrett retained the Championship when The Roadie interfered with the match, allowing Razor to win, but by disqualification.
Bret Hart vs Bob Backlund in an “I Quit” match with Roddy Piper as special guest referee
How do you go from a world championship match to an “I quit” match with Bob Backlund in just a year? This match was horrible to watch, and was just dominated by Roddy Piper screaming “WHAT DO YOU SAY?”. Bret Hart won this one – he was the only good thing in this match.
Diesel vs Shawn Michaels for the WWF Championship
So you would have thought that the WWF Championship match would be on last at WrestleMania, but this one wasn’t. Surely this meant that the main event was a massive match between two of the biggest names in wrestling history? Not quite. Just wait for that one.
This feud stemmed from Shawn Michaels accidentally kicking Diesel when they were tag team champions. Shawn Michaels had won the Royal Rumble earlier that year to face the WWF Champion Diesel. This match was pretty good, but it didn’t really seem big enough for WrestleMania. Big Daddy Cool hit one of the worst jackknife powerbombs ever to retian the WWF Championship.
Lawrence Taylor vs Bam Bam Bigelow
So what was this massive feud that needed to be in the main event? Lawrence Taylor (a footballer) vs Bam Bam Bigelow. Fine, have the match at WrestleMania because Vince has always loved the celebrity involvement, but does this really need to be the main event? I had no interest in this match, and I spent the majority of it looking at the back of King Kong Bundy’s neck.. Look at it above?! Lawrence Taylor won, which is a great way to put over a monster heel like Bam Bam Bigelow. By far the worst ever ending to a WrestleMania.
Thanks for reading this one guys! I honestly think this was a lot worse than WrestleMania 9.. This was my second blog post out to day though remember! Check out all my other Look Backs at WrestleMania on here as well! Thanks again!
