The 15 best pay-per-views ever

Just eight months after WWE changed sports-entertainment with the first WrestleMania, the company revolutionized the industry again on Nov. 17, 1985, with The Wrestling Classic. WWE’s first-ever live pay-per-view event, the show featured a 16-Superstar tournament, which was won by The Junkyard Dog. In the decades since that landmark night, WWE, WCW and ECW have beamed hundreds of epic events into homes around the world — all of which will be available on-demand when WWE Network launches on Feb. 24, 2014!
