Report by: Eric Loy

[Note: My cable company didn't start showing the coverage until 12:50 PM (EST), so this first part comes courtesy of 1wrestling.com]

12:00 PM (EST) - 1:00 PM (EST)

Opening
- The show opened with a great highlight package of clips from all Wrestlemanias, interspersed with sound bites from past shows. We then went to our first hosts for the day, Ivory (who was still in her robe and slippers) and Michael Cole. They are at Axxcess, which is empty, until an hour from now when they open the doors.

Then we went to Lillian Garcia and Kevin Kelly, who are at the Arrowhead Pond, which is also empty.

We then began with the history, starting with the first Wrestlemania. Michael Cole gave us the first unusual fact of the day, that the idea of Wrestlemania came to Vince while on vacation in the Caribbean. They went to an interview, where Vince McMahon talked about how risky the event was from a financial standpoint, and how people thought he was nut's. I guess he's having the last laugh now, 15 years later!

Gerald Brisco Interview
- They went to an interview with Gerald Brisco, who talked about the difficulty to convince buildings to carry the first Wrestlemania on closed-circuit TV. Howard Finkel then talked about when Vince first presented the idea of Wrestlemania to the office, and his decision to hold the event at Madison Square Garden.

Flashback: Wrestlemania I
- This led into the highlight package of the first Wrestlemania. Tons of clips, including King Kong Bundy killing S.D. Jones, the Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff winning the World Tag Team Titles, and Andre The Giant slamming Big John Studd.

They went back to Cole and Ivory (who sounds like she drank too much coffee today, but looked great in a short robe), and they talked about the "Rock N' Wrestling Connection." They had more comments from Brisco, who talked about his initial doubts over bringing in celebrities.

Flashback: Wrestlemania I
- They then aired Mean Gene Okerlund's interview with Cyndi Lauper and Wendi Richter from Wrestlemania. We then saw extensive highlights of the Woman's title match between Lelani Kai, with the Fabulous Moolah, and Richter, where Richter regained the title by rolling through a bodypress attempt into a pin. Cole and Ivory then reminded us that Cyndi Lauper was a big star back in 1985.

- Then we had a discussion of the main event from the inaugural event, and showed a package of events leading to the big match, including news clips from that time. They even showed footage of Hulk Hogan and Mr. T hosting Saturday Night Live the night before the event.

- We went to the classic footage, with the late, great Yankees manager Billy Martin acting as guest ring announcer. Liberace came out with the Rockette's, and did their kickline. Muhammad Ali is the guest referee, with Pat Patterson as the in ring official. The late, and also great, Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse Ventura are the announcers.

- Then the bagpipes hit, and out came Rowdy Roddy Piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff, along with Cowboy Bob Orton. Then out came Hulk Hogan & Mr. T, with Jimmy Snuka. They came out to "Real American" which was NOT even released at this point. Looks like the WWF did some creative editing here with the sound.

- Similar to the woman's title match, we have extended highlights of the tag team match. For those that don't remember, or never saw it, Hogan pinned Orndorff after Orton accidentally hit Mr. Wonderful with his cast.

Back at the still empty Axxess, where Ivory and Michael Cole were standing between the Kane and Rock race cars. Ivory is dressed now, and her skirt is shorter than the robe was! They went to Pat Patterson, who talked about being the referee at the first event. They also had an interview to Kerwin Sifles, who was the director for the first Wrestlemania broadcast. Vince McMahon was then back, talking about the post show party, and finding out that his gamble had paid off. Vince talked about being depressed that his big moment was over, and wanting to top himself.

They then began to talk about doing Wrestlemania 2 in three markets. Vince talked about the event. The tape slowed down of Vince's interview at one point, but quickly recovered. Gerald Brisco said he thought Vince was nuts, again.

Flashback: Wrestlemania II
- The highlight package for Wrestlemania 2 then aired. They showed a clip of Ray Charles singing "America, The Beautiful" in New York, and the video package of historical monuments and leaders that had accompanied him. The New York hosts were Vince McMahon and Susan St. James. They reviewed the ton of celebrities, but aired little match footage of the New York event.

- Then it was Chicago, with the NFL/WWF battle royal. I wonder if Vince will let his XFL players go at it in a battle royal. Gorilla Monsoon and Cathy Lee Crosby were the hosts. Andre The Giant won the battle royal. No other clips from the Chicago show was aired.

- They went to Los Angeles, and aired an even quicker clip package. Definitely not as in-depth as the coverage of the first Wrestlemania.

Fabulous Moolah Interview
- Ivory and Michael Cole then interviewed the Fabulous Moolah, who talked about working for Vince McMahon Sr., and the old territories.

Flashback: Wrestlemania II
- They then aired Moolah's victory over Velvet McIntyre at Wrestlemania 2 in Chicago, complete. Moolah got the pin when Velvet missed a second rope splash, even though Velvet had her foot on the ropes.

Back to Cole, Ivory and Moolah. Moolah talked about being one of the few women on the road in the old days. She talked about wrestling two matches (a handicap and 2/3 falls bout) for five dollars, then having to spend 3 on transportation and 1 on her license. She said things got much better working for the McMahons.

Flashback: Wrestlemania II
- We then had a history package on George "The Animal" Steele's infatuation with Elizabeth. She was hot then, and she's hot now. This was followed with extensive highlights of Randy Savage beating Steele at Wrestlemania 2, successfully defending the Intercontinental title. It should be noted that Steele actually kicked out of Savage's flying elbow during the match, but was pinned when Savage used the ropes for leverage.

Cole and Ivory explained how Wrestlemania 2 was one of the first big Pay-per-view events.

Flashback: Wrestlemania II
- Then we went to the history behind the Mr. T-Roddy Piper boxing match. Then it was extensive highlights of the fight, where Mr. T had Joe Frazier in his corner, and Roddy Piper had Lou Duva in his. Roddy Piper was disqualified for hitting the referee and bodyslamming Mr. T in round 4. We also saw the post match melee with the seconds.


1:00 PM (EST) - 2:00 PM (EST)

Howard Finkel Interview
- Howard Finkel was interviewed, and talked about Wrestlemania 3's attendance. He said he was proud of Vince achieving that moment.

Vince McMahon Interview
- Vince said that he was proud of Andre The Giant, Wrestlemania 3, and Hulk Hogan for the whole event. He said he wanted to give the 93,000 at that show the best he could. He said he wished his dad would have been there, because he would have been proud of his son. Vince is getting a tear in his eye talking about his father; understandably so. He said he felt that his father was there with him

Flashback: Wrestlemania III
- Vince McMahon is shown introducing Aretha Franklin preforming "America, The Beautiful" at Wrestlemania III, in one of the great WM moments, in my opinion, in front of the 93 some odd thousandin attendance.

Back at Axxess, Ivory and Cole are talking about the proud moment for Vince, being WM3. They go to Kevin Kelly and Linda McMahon at the Arrowhead Pond.

Linda said that he was equally as proud as Vince for being a part of the huge Wrestlemania III show. She said that Aretha was having problems getting to the building because of her immense popularity and the immense attendance. Linda then said she was thrilled and privledged to be a part of the main event at tonight's Wrestlemania. She said she is putting her money on Mick Foley to win tonight. Kelly and Linda then talk about the McMahons being the "most dysfunctional family on television."

Kelly then cuts back to Cole and Ivory at Axxess, where fans are starting to fill-in at the event. Cole then went to some clips of the Savage/Ricky Steamboat feud, leading up to the legendary match at Wrestlemania III.

Flashback: Wrestlemania III
- This match was for the Intercontinental title, pitting the champion Randy Savage against Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. Steamboat cut an interview before the match, saying he wanted to scorch the body of the Macho Man. Steamboat came to the ring with George "The Animal" Steele in his corner. Steamboat controlled the match early with a number of arm drags and armbreaker maneuvers. The match then continued to go back and forth between the two competitors. The crowd is really into this match. Steamboat continued to use his classic small packages, school boys, and other pinfall maneuvers. Savage throws Steamboat into the referee, knocking him out. Savage hit the elbow drop, but the referee is still out. Savage goes to the outside to get the bell, but Steele takes it from him. Savage takes it back, but Steele knocks him off the top rope. Steamboat capitilizes with a school boy to win the match and the Intercontinental title, in what went down as one of the greatest matches of all time.

Chris Jericho Interview
- Y2J talked about the Steamboat/Savage match. He considered it one of the greatest matches of all time and said it was a great techinical match. Jericho said that he learned a lot from that match.

Michael Cole is with Stacey Pauly, who is discussing the history of the WWF action figures. She then shows us what figures will be out in the summer, which look pretty cool. A video is then shown to show us how WWF action figures are made, more specifically, the new Realscan figures. The Realscan figures are made from real pictures, and makes the most realistic figures I have ever seen.

Vince McMahon Interview
- Vince is talking about how he convinced Andre The Giant to come back to the WWF for Wrestlemania III. He said the Andre had done everything in wrestling, but he needed a suitable opponent for Hulk Hogan, since he was a monstrous babyface. Andre had just had back surgery and had no interest in returning. Vince, being the awesome salesman he is, convinced Andre that facing Hogan would be the best for the business and for himself. Andre was sold on it, and came over from England to work with Hogan.

Flashback: Wrestlemania III
- Andre The Giant came to the ring with his manager, Bobby Heenan, to face Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship. By the way, the WWF title belt looks like the WCW TV title at this time period. Hogan still has some hair on the top of his head at this time, heh. Hogan hulks up while in a bearhug by Andre and breaks the hold. Hogan goes for a shoulderblock, but on the third try gets clotheslined down. The match went to the outside, where Hogan tried to piledrive Andre on the floor, but gets back body dropped. Hogan knocks Andre down with a monstrous clothesline. Hogan hulks up once again, while the big man is reeling. Hogan powerslammed Andre and hit the big leg-drop to win the match.

Kerwin Silfees Interview
- Kerwin Silfees is a television writer for the WWF and talked about the genius behind the booking of Hogan vs. Andre. Silfees said that Andre said that he was very proud of the match, and felt that he put those 93,000 people in the arena.

Pat Patterson Interview
- Patterson said that during the main event, he crawled out to ringside to watch the match, to get the feeling of it.

Ivory is back at WWF Axxess, where she tried to put her hand in an actual mold of Andre The Giant's hand. She then went to a tribute video for Andre.

Tribute: Andre The Giant
- Video clips in this tribute included Andre appearing on several TV shows, and being interviewed by a very young Vince McMahon. The 8th Wonder of the World made his impact on the wrestling world that will never be forgotten. R.I.P. Andre.

Michael Cole and Ivory are interviewing Hillbilly Jim, a person who helps the WWF in making their home videos, and a former WWF wrestler. Jim talked about how nice a person Andre was and was a great man. Hillbilly Jim was at Wrestlemania III and said it was a rush to be a part of that show, because it was a phenomenal atmosphere to be a part of.

Flashback: Wrestlemania III
- Hillbilly Jim and two midgets took on King Kong Bundy and two midgets in a six man tag team match at Wrestlemania III. Bundy gets tagged in against one of the midgets, but Hillbilly Jim got tagged in to prevent the midget from getting stepped on. Bundy was disqualified for beating up one of the midgets. All of the midgets got mad at Bundy and stayed with Hillbilly Jim, while Bundy left alone.

Hillbilly Jim talked about the match with Cole and Ivory afterwards, and plugged all the WWF home videos.

Pat Patterson Interview
- Patterson said that when he traveled around after Wrestlemania III, everywhere he looked he saw Wrestlemania hats and shirts, because people from all around came to it.

Taka and Hardcore Holly were having a match in the Crunch 'n' Munch arena during this time.

- WWF front office man, Basil DeVito was telling the story of how he got the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, NJ to host Wrestlemania 4.

Flashback: Wrestlemania IV

After the clips, DeVito continued to give his stories of Wrestlemania IV.

Flashback: Wrestlemania IV
- This flashback was all from the WWF Title tournament. Ted DiBiase defeated Hacksaw Jim Duggan in the first round; Don Muraco defeated Dino Bravo in the first round; Greg Valentine defeated Ricky Steamboat in the first round; Randy Savage defeated Butch Reed in the first round; One Man Gang defeated Bam Bam Bigelow; and Rick Rude and Jake Roberts went to a draw, so both men were eliminated from the tournament. In the second round action, Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant were both eliminated via a DQ [both had first round byes]; Ted DiBiase defeated Don Muraco; Randy Savage defeated Greg Valentine; One Man Gang got an automatic bye to the semifinals because of the Rude/Roberts draw. In semifinal action, Ted DiBiase got an automatic bye to the final because of the Hogan/Andre double DQ; Randy Savage defeated One Man Gang to advance to the final. In the final, Randy Savage captured the WWF Championship by defeating Ted DiBiase.

Flashback: Wrestlemania V
- Andre The Giant took on Jake "The Snake" Roberts, with Big John Studd as the special guest referee. Jake Roberts ended up winning the match by disqualification.

Michael Cole and Bruce Pritchard talked about the Jake Roberts character, and how it started. Pritchard said that people like Andre and Bobby Heenan didn't care for the snake being carried around, because Heenan is deathly afraid of snakes. Pritchard told a story of when he was DDTed by Roberts, and he ripped his clothing off and put the snake down his pants.

Flashback: Wrestlemania V
- This match was for the Intercontinental title, pitting the challenger Rick Rude, with his manager Bobby Heenan, facing off against the champion, the Ultimate Warrior. Rude is wearing his classic trunks with the IC title drawn on them. Steve Blackman should be taking notes on this match; maybe he can get some charisma from Warrior in this match. Bobby Heenan held on to the Warrior's legs while Rick Rude pinned him to win the Intercontinental title.

Cole, Ivory, and Pritchard talk about the legacy of Wrestlemania. Many consider it the "Super Bowl of Wrestling," but Pritchard feels that it is even bigger than the Super Bowl. They then cut to the arena, where people are setting up getting ready for Wrestlemania. Pritchard does his classic "I lovvvve youuuuu" line, when he was Brother Love, to close out the interview.

Flashback: The Mega-Powers
- After Wrestlemania IV, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage formed the Mega-Powers, and in turn, had one of the greatest feuds of all time, including Miss Elizabeth in it. Hogan said that Savage was jealous of him, and was upset that Miss Elizabeth was getting put in the middle of everything.

Flashback: Wrestlemania V
- This match was for the WWF Championship: Randy Savage defending his title against Hulk Hogan. Savage has held the title since Wrestlemania IV at this point. Elizabeth went over to help Savage but he almost hit her because he didn't want any help. Savage busted Hogan open and continued to work on busting open his face. Savage shoved Elizabeth away from ringside, and the referee threw her out. Savage hit the big elbow on Hogan, but Hogan kicked out, and in turn, hulked up. Hogan hit the big boot and the leg-drop to win the WWF Championship, yet again.

Michael Cole praised Hulk Hogan for his ability, and went to Vince McMahon.

Vince McMahon Interview
- Vince said that Hogan had a ton of charisma, but little athletic talent (ha!). Vince then talked about Hogan leaving the WWF to film Rocky, with Sylvester Stallone. He credited that movie appearance as putting Hogan on the mainstream map, and put the WWF over. He then discussed Hogan going to Minneapolis to work on his character and mic skills. He then brought the Hulk Hogan character back to the WWF.


3:00 PM (EST) - 4:00 PM (EST)

Slaugher had Hogan in the Camel Clutch twice, but Hogan wouldn't submit. Hogan hulked up and got out of it the second time, but Slaugher pushed him into the turnbuckles. Slaugher brought the Iraqi flag into the ring, draped it over Hogan and tried to pin him. Hogan ripped the Iraqi flag to pieces and hulked up once again. Hogan hit the big boot and the leg-drop to win the WWF Title at Wrestlemania .. again!

After the match, Cole said to Slaugher that he said that his match against Hogan was his favorite Wrestlemania moment of all-time.

Flashback: Wrestlemania VII

Warrior hit his Gorilla Press Slam, but Savage kicked out. The match went to the outside, where Warrior took control. Back in the ring, the Warrior hit countless shoulderblocks and pinned Savage, forcing him to retire. Sherri is pissed and gets in the ring afterwards and beats up Savage.

Perfect then hit Savage with a chair while Flair had the referee distracted. Miss Elizabeth makes her way down to the ringside area, while Flair still attacks Savage's legs.

Back at the arena, Kevin Kelly and Jim Ross are discussing commentary. Ross says that it has gotten better as time has gone on.

Gerald Brisco Interview
- Brisco was talking about how athletic Yokozuna was, and still considers him a phenom in this business. He had amazing talent for a man his size.

Flashback: Wrestlemania IX
- WWF Title: Bret Hart vs. Yokozuna. Yokozuna dominated most of the match by using his size to his advantage. Hart recovered and hit a second rope bulldog on Yokozuna. It took Hart two clotheslines to take the big man down. Bret Hart hooks the Sharpshooter on Yoko, but Mr. Fuji threw powder in Hart's eyes. Yokozuna pins him to win the WWF Title, but Hulk Hogan comes down and Yoko challenges him for a match right then and there. Fuji goes to throw powder in Hogan's eyes, but hits Yoko. Hogan hits a clothesline and a leg drop to win the WWF title at a Wrestlemania .. AGAIN.

Flashback: Wrestlemania X
- A video package was shown recapping all the events that occured at Wrestlemania X, including the famous ladder match between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon, Yokozuna vs. Lex Luger, and Yokozuna vs. Bret Hart.

Flashback: The Road to Wrestlemania
- At the Stars & Stripes Challenge during the Summer of '94, Lex Luger bodyslammed Yokozuna, and thus earned a WWF title shot at Summerslam against Yokozuna. Lex Luger beat Yoko, but by countout, so he did not win the WWF title. The only other way that Luger would get another title shot is if he would win the Royal Rumble. Both Bret Hart and Lex Luger touched the floor on the outside, so both were declared winners. In a coin flip the next night on RAW, Luger won the cointoss, and the right to face Yokozuna first at Wrestlemania X. The winner of the Yoko/Luger match would face Bret Hart at Wrestlemania X as well for the title.

Flashback: Wrestlemania X
- In one of the top 5 greatest Wrestlemania matches ever, Owen Hart took on his brother Bret in the opener of Wrestlemania X. It was a very technically sound match, where Owen amazingly picked up the pinfall victory. [I have talked to Bret personally before, and he said the plan was for him to win, but he refused to win the match, because he wanted to put Owen over, because Bret winning would do nothing, but with Owen winning, he gets an awesome rub and can continue his rise on the WWF ladder.]

Edge & Christian Interview
- Edge said that he didn't ever think that Owen would beat Bret in the match, and he said he considers that one of the best matches he has ever seen.

Ivory and Michael Cole are talking about the Owen/Bret match now at the Arrowhead Pond. They then go to clips of the two WWF Title matches at Wrestlemania X.

Flashback: Wrestlemania X
- The first title match was Yokozuna vs. Lex Luger. Mr. Perfect (who was the guest referee) refused to count the three, as Luger had Yokozuna pinned several times. He was disqualified for touching Perfect.

- The second title match was Yokozuna defending the title against Bret Hart. Bret pulled Yoko off of the second rope while he was going for the Banzai drop, and got the pinfall to win the title.

Chris Jericho Interview
- Jericho began to talk about his favorite matches of all-time; including the Bret vs. Owen match and the Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon ladder match.

Flashback: Wrestlemania X
- The storyline going into the HBK/Razor ladder match was that HBK had been stripped of the Intercontinental title due to an injury, and Razor had won the vacant belt. HBK said that he never lost the title, so he began carrying around a fake IC title belt, claiming he was the real champion. This match was filled with high spots, and I have seen it thousands of times because I own the Wrestlemania X tape. Razor ended up winning by grabbing both the fake and real IC title belts.

Gerald Brisco Interview
- Brisco praised Vince McMahon, saying he has a niche for giving fans what they have never seen before.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XI

- LT appeared on Regis and Kathy Lee, where Regis was dressed up as Bam Bam Bigelow.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XI
- Lawerence Taylor vs. Bam Bam Bigelow. This was a very stiff match, with referee Pat Patterson doing his best to control the action. Bam Bam's Million Dollar Corporation and LT's All-Pro Team got involved in the match and with eachother during the match as well. LT won the match with a stiff elbow smash off the top rope. This was the match that sent Bam Bam's career on a downward spiral.

Flashback: Diesel and Shawn Michaels
- Diesel was brought into the WWF by HBK as his bodyguard. HBK was jealous that Diesel had achieved his dream of winning the WWF title. HBK then brought in a new bodyguard, Sycho Sid.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XI
- Shawn Michaels vs. Diesel for the WWF Championship. The match went back and forth and went to the outside a lot during it. Diesel hit a nasty looking Jackknife powerbomb to retain the title.


6:00 PM (EST) - 7:00 PM (EST)

Flashback: Wrestlemania XII
- Video highlights were shown of Wrestlemania XII, including Steve Austin, HHH, Ultimate Warrior, Roddy Piper, Bret Hart, Yokozuna, Goldust, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Diesel, and more.

Pat Patterson Interview
- Patterson said that he knew that Austin and HHH were going to be stars in the WWF in time.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XII
- Iron Man Match: Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels. The person to get the most decisions in 60 minutes will win the WWF Championship. Both Shawn and Bret are huge babyfaces in this match. It got to the 11 minute left mark, and there were still no decisions. It got to 2:30 left and there still wasn't a decision. It got all the way down to 1:00 without a decision. Bret had Shawn in the Sharpshooter but he wouldn't submit. The time expired, and there still wasn't a decision, so Bret retained the title. Gorilla Monsoon came down and ordered the match to continue under sudden death rules until someone got a decision. HBK hit Sweet Chin Music and got the pinfall to win the WWF Championship for the first time ever.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XIII
- Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin: "I Quit" Rules, with Ken Shamrock as the special guest referee. Stone Cold Steve Austin a star. Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are the announcers. Austin was a bloody mess, and the finish, where Austin refused to submit to the sharpshooter and passed out from the pain, is classic. They also showed the aftermath, where Shamrock had to pull Bret off of Austin, and Stone Cold gave a stunner to Earl Hebner and walked out of the ring on his own.

The Rock came on, and said that this was his favorite Wrestlemania match. Pat Patterson said the match made them major superstars. Back to the Pond, where Cole and Ivory were with Jerry Lawler. Lawler commented on the change in WWF Attitude, and the popularity of Steve Austin. Michael Cole pointed out how this was the beginning of the switch where typical heels became popular, and typical babyfaces became booed. Ivory said "whoopass" and gave the finger while talking about Austin.

They then talked about the Cat fight, and Lawler was hoping to see a kiss between the combatants. Lawler then made his prediction for the main event, The Rock, mainly because Vince would be in his corner. Then it was time to go into the main event of Wrestlemania 13.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XIII
- It was the Undertaker challenging Sid for the WWF World Title, with Shawn Michaels joining Vince and Lawler on commentary. They joined the match in progress, which ended when Bret Hart tried to interfere again (he had interfered earlier), Sid tried to knock him off the apron, but Bret pulled him throat first across the top rope. The Undertaker took advantage of the situation and tombstoned Sid for the pin and the title.

Michael and Ivory were next to the USA production truck, which was going to be broadcasting Heat in a few moments. Then they discussed The Rock, who made his Wrestlemania 13 debut as Rocky Maivia, when he was the youngest Intercontinental champion ever, defending against the Sultan (who we now know as Rikishi Phatu, although they didn't mention it). Michael then talked about how he didn't get over as a babyface. Lot's of shooting in this thing folks.

The Rock and Pat Patterson both discussed how the Rocky Maivia thing just never got over with the crowd, and how the fans turned on him.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XIV
- Time to look at Wrestlemania 14, from Boston, with a highlight video. Remember LOD 2000 with Sunny? Seems like so long ago, and it was only two years. They interspersed a lot of fan comments in this video. Of course, they had to show Pete Rose getting tombstoned by Kane.

Ivory and Michael Cole then talked about Mike Tyson's involvement in Wrestlemania as the special referee for the World title match between Shawn Michaels and Steve Austin. They had a cool video, set to the original DX theme, of the events leading to the main event.

We then had comments from Pat Patterson about how chaotic the backstage situation was for this main event, with each guy (Austin, Michaels, Tyson) wanting to steal the show. Triple H put over how Shawn worked so hard, despite his injured back. It's hard to believe it's been two years since Shawn Michaels has wrestled, but it's true.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XIV
- An extensive highlight package of the main event from Wrestlemania 14, Shawn Michaels vs. Steve Austin, with Mike Tyson as the special enforcer referee, for the WWF World title was shown. This may have been the best package yet. Of course, Austin won the title with the Stone Cold Stunner after a superkick attempt by Shawn, and Tyson knocked out Shawn after the match.

They had footage of Austin and Tyson at the post Wrestlemania press conference. Then we had comments from Vince McMahon, who talked about the toll the match took on Shawn Michaels, and the breakthrough of Steve Austin. He talked about their drive to put on a great match, and their doubts if they could do it. McMahon also mentioned how professional Tyson was throughout, despite some reservations due to his being so volatile. Vince said that in the end, the fans got what they deserved.

Ivory changed clothes again, now wearing a nice red dress.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XIV
- We went to a highlight video of Kane vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania 14, which was their first one-on-one match. Undertaker won this match with the Tombstone piledriver.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XV
- We then got to take a look at Shane McMahon becoming the first wrestling McMahon at a Wrestlemania, taking on X-Pac at Wrestlemania 15 last year. They interspersed highlights of the match with comments from Shane, X-Pac and the Mean Street Posse. All of the comments were done in a shoot style. Shane won the match, and retained the European title after Triple H interfered, turned on X-Pac and pedigreed him, allowing Shane to get the win. X-Pac talked about how DX had fought the storyline, since they didn't want to be broken up. Shane called the match one of the best moments of his life.

Michael Cole was then shown above the arena, looking down at the crowd.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XV
- Then they went back to Wrestlemania 15, and the Brawl-For-All match with Bart Gunn vs. Butterbean. They showed this match in it's entirety. All 90 seconds of it. Butterbean killed Bart, who is now in All Japan Pro Wrestling, wrestling as Mike Barton.

The Rock Interview
- The Rock then commented on watching it with Steve Austin, and saying that Austin had picked Bart to "knock that sonofabitch out". Rock said that Austin still owes him 20 bucks for that one!

They showed Ivory and Michael Cole above the arena, and you could see the ladder in the ring in the background. Are they going to open with the most anticipated match on the show? Could be.

Flashback: Wrestlemania XV
- We then had a feature on the main event from last years Wrestlemania, with extended highlights of The Rock vs. Steve Austin for the WWF World Title. Vince McMahon tried to screw Steve Austin, but thanks to Mankind he was unable to do so, and Austin defeated The Rock with a stunner to win the title, as Mankind counted the three count.

Back to Michael Cole and Ivory, and then a final chat with Vince, to discuss celebrities. Vince talked about the hoopla of the first event, how funny it was to tell people like Liberace what to do. He said that since then, they have done a 180, and that the WWF stars were now the true celebrities.
