Actual main event: Yokozuna vs. Bret Hart
What the main event should have been: Bret Hart vs. Randy Savage
A lot of people probably think that the amazing Ladder Match between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon should have been for the WWE Championship as opposed to the Intercontinental Championship, but I’m not taking that route. Those two were exactly where they were supposed to be at this time and put on one hell of a show.
WrestleMania X was very strange. Bret Hart and Lex Luger simultaneously eliminated one another to end the 1994 Royal Rumble, and both were granted a WWE Championship match at Madison Square Garden. Luger won the right to go first, but to make things even, Bret had to fight his brother Owen to open the show, a match that was simply wonderful. Luger got himself disqualified in his match, and Hart went on to get his revenge on Yokozuna and win the WWE Championship in yet another average match.
Now, way down the card you had Randy Savage, one of the best WrestleMania performers in history, taking on Crush in a grudge match in the third bout of the night. There’s a travesty right there, but Vince wasn’t sold on the Macho Man as a wrestler anymore and he didn’t get much. What a shame. Bret Hart vs. Randy Savage as the main event of WrestleMania X could have been gold.
Okay, I’m going to break one of my rules here and pretend that my WrestleMania IX main event with Hogan and Hart actually happened. Hart is the face of WWE and has taken on all challengers put in front of him for the past year … everyone except Randy Savage, who himself is looking for one more shot at glory. He gets hot and goes on a nice winning streak and is finally confident enough to challenge for the WWE Championship one more time. But Hart is standing in the way and the two put on a fantastic main event with The Hitman coming out on top.
