|Passing the torch? (WWE)|

I will talk more about this in a future video on My 1-2-3 Cents on YouTube, but since I'm going in order with my Mania Memories blogs, I figured I'd write about it too. I think Wrestlemania 6 may (and I repeat may) have had the biggest main event in the history of the extravaganza. I'll go into further details in the vlog, so save your comments for then.
Hulk Hogan vs. the Ultimate Warrior was the first time the WWF ever pitted two baby faces against each other in the main event of Wrestlemania. It was also the first time (I believe) that there was a title vs. title match. I know in the past world champs had faced Intercontinental champs, but only the world title was on the line. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
However, Warrior in the driver's seat didn't last long and Hogan came back from Hollywood and was soon again on top. One thing I never understood though was why they didn't book the rematch for Wrestlemania 7. Like I said, it wasn't a scientific matchup by any stretch of the imagination, but it would have been a better main event than Hogan vs. Sgt. Slaughter. But that's for another post.

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper also made his Wrestlemania return at 6. He battled Bad News Brown to a double count out while painted half black. It's still one of those moments that stands out to me when I think back on the history of Wrestlemania. This mania also marked the first pinfall loss on TV for Mr. Perfect. Brutus Beefcake defeated Curt Hennig, who would soon go on to win the IC title that the Warrior would have to forfeit.
