WrestleMania’s 5 greatest rematches

Bret Hart vs. Yokozuna (WrestleMania X)

After winning the 1993 Royal Rumble Match, the seemingly unstoppable 500-pound Yokozuna set his sights on Bret “Hit Man” Hart’s WWE Championship at WrestleMania IX. Despite his Hart Family Dungeon training and technical mastery, not even “The Excellence of Execution” could fell the mighty Japanese juggernaut — thanks in no small part to the meddling of Mr. Fuji. By tossing salt in Hart’s eyes as the “Hit Man” had his gargantuan challenger locked in the Sharpshooter, Fuji ensured that Yokozuna would continue his reign as WWE Champion.

The nefarious manager’s actions would set the stage for an impromptu WWE Championship bout between Hulk Hogan and the new WWE Title holder immediately — resulting in a championship victory for The Hulkster — but retribution for Hart would come nearly a year later at WrestleMania X.

In front of a capacity Madison Square Garden crowd, Hart capitalized when Yokozuna lost his balance before executing the devastating Banzai Drop, earning “The Pink-and-Black Attack” his second WWE Championship in the process. This hard-fought and redemptive triumph was immediately celebrated in the ring by the likes of Lex Luger, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Razor Ramon and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and gave WWE Universe members around the globe a chance to stand up and cheer in unison for “The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be.”
