April 1, 2016

Our site's staff has ranked every WrestleMania match, and on The Dissent Glenn Butler, Jordan Duncan, and Scott Butler run down some highlights & lowlights from WrestleMania history to see where they agree and disagree with the final list. They discuss Hart vs. Hart, Kurt Angle's legacy, how many main events are better than Lesnar vs. Reigns, whether anything can stand up to the main event of WrestleMania Negative Seventy-Five, short matches, the case for Hogan vs. Andre as an obvious number one, and the merits of Uncle Elmer.

In segment two, the three take a look at every competitor who's had more than ten matches at the granddaddy of them all and examine their highs and lows to try to answer the question: does anyone have more crappy WrestleMania matches than The Undertaker?

Hopefully Bret Hart will accept the invitation laid out for the next episode. In the meantime, join us for all the fat gut thrusts you can take on The Dissent!
