30 Years of WrestleMania: Wrestlezone’s Top 10 Superstars to Headline the Showcase of the Immortals

Mike Killam

WZ Top TenWrestleMania is known by many names. The Showcase of the Immortals. The Granddaddy of Them All. The Superbowl of Sports Entertainment. Where it all begins again….and again…and again. 

The very first WrestleMania started a national phenomenon – three years later Hulkamania was at its peak as 93,000 people packed into the Pontiac Silverdome to watch Hogan slam Andre the Giant. WrestleMania X marked the first time Hogan wasn't involved in the main event – three years later the Attitude Era was born. WrestleMania XX gave birth to an entire roster of new champions and contenders – three years later John Cena was an international superstar, and a household name. 

In three days, it's WrestleMania XXX. It marks the first time in a decade that John Cena hasn't competed in one of the main event matches on wrestling's greatest stage. In the immortal words of Bob Dylan, "the times, they are a-changin'". 

Today we look back on the top ten WWE Superstars to have ever headlined WrestleMania. The big draws. The major attractions. The main event. The quintessential icons that have shaped an industry for what will be 30 years this Sunday.
