Trivia

The finish to the Justice-Hogan match actually did not occur as planned. The original plan was for Hulk Hogan to hit the leg drop on Justice and for Papa Shango to do a run in and break up the pin causing a disqualification. However, Papa Shango missed his cue and was late in getting down to the ring. Justice improvised by kicking out of the leg drop. From there, referee Earl Hebner would disqualify Justice when his manager, Harvey Wippleman, interfered. See more »

The First One I Remember Watching
4 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a child, "Wrestlemania 8" was the first Wrestlemania I remember really getting into (anything before this I was just too young for). Thus, it will always hold a special place in my WM rankings. However, more objectively speaking, I also feel as if it was a pretty quality event in its own right.

The highlights for me included...

-The debut of Shawn Michael's "Sexy Boy" persona. -The Undertaker absolutely manhandling Jake "The Snake" Roberts -"Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Bret "Hit Man" Hart squaring off in an emotional friend-vs.-friend contest -Ric Flair and "Macho Man" Randy Savage battling for the true affections of Elizabeth (a lot of emotion in this one) -WM debut of Tatanka, always a fun character.

Sadly, as with "Wrestlemania VII", the reason I can't give this event the full five stars is because the final Hulk Hogan vs. Sid Justice match falls flat. Maybe the least inspiring final match of a Wrestlemania since the first one.

Other than that, though, "Wrestlemania VIII" is a solid event filled with some great wrestling and some great characters. There are fewer matches in this event than ever before, but its very much a "quality over quantity" approach at play instead.
