On this day in 1985, the very first WrestleMania took place at Madison Square Gardens in New York City. Professional Wrestling was booming in the 1980’s, and nothing exemplified this more than the World Wrestling Federation and the incredible success of WrestleMania. The main event featured a tag team match. On one side was the Heavyweight Champion, Hulk Hogan, partnered with Mr. T, and supported by Jimmy “Super Fly” Snuka. Their opponents were Rowdy Roddy Piper and Paul “Mr. Wonderful” Orndorrf, supported by Cowboy Bob Orton.
15 year old boys everywhere, including Vancouver, were stoked.
