Wrestlemania season is once again upon us, and with that comes the annual excitement leading up to the biggest show in wrestling. This year sees the return of fans in a limited capacity, after last year’s Wrestlemania was held in an empty performance centre. One of the coolest things we look forward to at Wrestlemania each year, are the over-the-top entrances as they try to outdo themselves year after year. Today, I’ll take a quick look at my 5 favourite Wrestlemania entrances ever.
5. CHARLOTTE FLAIR: WM 35
At Wrestlemania 35, the women headlined the biggest show and Charlotte Flair made sure no-one would ever forget her entrance as she made her way to the MetLife stadium in a helicopter.
4. TRIPLE H: WM 22
At Wrestlemania 22, Triple H faced John Cena for WWE title. His King Conan-like entrance sent chills all around the arena as he sat on his throne.
3. UNDERTAKER & SHAWN MICHAELS: WM 25
This one you get 2 for one! At Wrestlemania 25, Shawn Michaels and the Undertaker faced off in what many consider the greatest match in Wrestlemania history. Their entrances will also go down in history as 2 of the greatest ever.
2. UNDERTAKER: WM 20
At Madison Square Gardens at Westlemania 20, the Deadman returned to face his brother Kane, and with the the Undertaker’s dark persona making a comeback he was accompanied by his long-time friend Paul Bearer. Kane had believed his brother to be dead, but boy-oh-boy was he wrong as the famous druids held their torches aloft and gave us the most bone-chilling entrance of all time.
1. SHAWN MICHAELS: WM 12
As a kid, nothing was cooler than seeing HBK zip-line from the roof to the ring as he took on Bret Hart to win his first WWF title. Even after all these years, this entrance holds up as the greatest Wrestlemania entrance of all time – and after all, he is called Mr Wrestlemania for a reason.
Hopefully, even with limited fans in attendance, this year’s Wrestlemania can produce more iconic entrances and moments to help everyone forget how much the world sucks at the moment.
