Trivia

After Shawn Michaels' title victory, it was claimed by several sources that Michaels told referee Earl Hebner to kick his manager, Jose Lothario, and Bret Hart out of the ring so he could have his "moment." Bret later claimed in his 2005 DVD that Shawn actually told him to "Get the !!!! out of my ring - it's my moment." See more »

WWE Wrestlemania XII, 1996

A passable Wrestlemania.

Firstly lets get the bad out of the way. Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart fought for the WWF Heavyweight Championship in a 60 minute iron man match. However the match was mediocre and bored fans senseless with their methodical rest holds and boring moves. The match was restarted at the 60 minute interval and Michaels pinned Hart to capture the belt, but no one cared. At least 5,000 fans walked out on the match near the end because they were bored.

'The Ringmaster' Steve Austin downed Savio Vega in another boring match. Austin did not like this gimmick at all and was made worse by the fact that he was managed by Ted DiBiase who still thought at the time it was the year 1988 and not 1996. Austin was relived when DiBiase left the WWF for WCW at the time which was understandable.

The Ultimate Warrior squashed Hunter Hearst Hemsley in 30 seconds. Warrior refused to put Hemsley over in any way and even demanded he kick out of the pedigree, not believable at all. Triple H has stated many times that he found Jim Hellwig "The most unprofessional person, he's ever stepped into the ring with". Considering Triple H's record of winning nearly all his matches and screwing over people (Booker T at Wrestlemania 19 and Rob Van Dam at Unforgiven 2002 and many more) he's got a bit of a cheek.

The PPV does have it's highlights though, such as the Hollywood Backlot Brawl featuring 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and Goldust (the sight of two wrestlers chasing each other down the highway at the time was unbelievable, even though some of it was footage of OJ Simpson) and the match between The Undertaker and Diesel was fairly decent.

Results from the show which was held in Anaheim, California: Owen Hart, The British Bulldog and Vader defeated Jake 'the snake' Roberts, Ahmed Johnson and Yokozuna in a fair 6 man tag match.... 'The Ringmaster' Steve Austin downed Savio Vega in a mediocre match.... The Ultimate Warrior pinned Hunter Hearst Hemsley in a 30 second squash.... The Undertaker downed Diesel in a fair match.... 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper went to a non finish with Goldust in an entertaining Hollywood Backlot Brawl.... Shawn Michaels defeated Bret Hart to capture the WWF title in a poor match.
