Hulk Hogan: The poster boy of the 80s as the WWE Champion.
The Ultimate Warrior: Upcoming superstar that carries the InterContinental Championship.
Who will emerge victorious after their bout? I'm not going to tell you! (Yeah, go ahead and Wiki it, you lazy gits!)
All that aside, everyone remembers that showdown between these two. Many call it one of the greatest matches of that time (remember, there were equals fans between the two). But was this the only match that made WrestleMania VI memorable?
Well, I hate to be bearer of honest news, but yeah, this was the only match that made WrestleMania VI. I say this because I was about 5 or so when I watched this event. I really enjoyed watching WWF back in the day (PLEASE, for the LOVE OF GOD, Vince McMahon, make pro wrestling about PRO WRESTLING). Now, at 30 years old, my opinion has changed quite drastically.
While this event wasn't a complete flop, I felt that too many unnecessary matches really killed this event. A good example would be Bolsheviks vs Hart Foundation. A match that lasted less than a minute, and no excitement. I HATE matches like that (the ONLY exception being SummerSlam 88 between Warrior and Honky Tonk Man).
Speaking of which, his concert with Greg Valentine? BORING (although the Bushwhackers destroying the set was okay). I felt that these two teams should've had an impromptu match, then it would've been better.
The rest of the even was only average, until we get to "The Ultimate Challenge". And did it live up to the tagline. While the match itself was fun to watch, only one thing could've made it better. And that would be if the match was NO HOLDS BARRED! If it was like this, then the match would've been even better to watch.
Overall, on a scale of 1 to 5, I would give this a 2 out of 5. Not a great way to kick off the 90s, but at least they tried.
