Wrestlemania VIII is one of my personal favorites. There are a few duds on the card. Tatanka and Rick Martel's feud at the time was highly hyped, and although the match was good, they should've delivered something a little better. Owen Hart vs Skinner is clearly the worst match on the card, but you can't expect anything better. Skinner was basically a jobber at the time, and Owen Hart was very new to audiences. The 8 Man-Tag match would've made the crowd sleep had it not been for Ray Combs introduction to the match. Those few flaws aside, the rest of the event was up to Wrestlemania standards.

The IC Title match between Bret Hart and Roddy Piper was a great display of technical wrestling, and the finish of the match had me watching it in replay for several minutes afterwards. This was Bret Hart's final wrestling event, prior to becoming a main eventer. His performance here makes you wonder why WWF had him positioned as a mid-carder for so long. The true highlight of the show was the WWF Title match between "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Ric Flair. It was possibly the single most intense WWF match ever, at that point. Savage did what he did best, take a huge beating. I remember Savage and Flair's feud as being the best thing about WWF in the early 90s, and their Wrestlemania match was the perfect conclusion to their rivalry.

The only unfortunate thing about the show was that the Savage/Flair match was positioned in the middle of the show, saving the poorly performed Hulk Hogan/Sid Vicious match for the finale. That decision was obviously made because at the time, Hogan was supposedly retiring. Luckily The Ultimate Warrior's return at the end of the match was enough to leave a good final impression on this event. I found it funny at the time that Warrior's unexpected return got a bigger response than Hogan's so called "Retirement match".

If you're more interested in the good old school wrestling style, as opposed to the over the top soap opera style of today's wrestling, check out Wrestlemania VIII. It's a great event built on great wrestling.
