Best WrestleMania entrances of all time

WWE WrestleMania is without a shadow of a doubt the biggest show of all the sports entertainment. In another word it's like a Christmas of the wrestling world. It's time to celebrate the biggest festival of wrestling promotion on earth. Isn't?
Everything about this wrestling show is quite fascinating to watch, and one of the most fascinating thing about this show is the entrance of the WWE wrestlers and it's one of the essential parts of the wrestling match. The entrance has played a huge role to make wrestling lived up to its hyped since its invention. And there are so many memorable entrances that have blown the mind of the wrestling fans from the past decade. So today we're gonna look at some of the best WrestleMania entrances of all time. 

Rusev: #WrestleMania 31

This match of Rusev was scheduled with John Cena. Many Cena haters were backing Rusev in this match. However, that never stopped WWE to book Rusev on his anti-America gimmick to make Cena over with the fans. The Bulgarian wrestler switching his loyalty to Russia for the storyline purposes was simply awesome. Having debuted his new character in 2014, Rusev went on an impressive streak that saw him dominating the United States title scene. Nonetheless, with big match Cena, especially at WrestleMania, Rusev was facing his most frowning test to date.
That being said, the Russian national anthem playing out the crowd in "San Francisco", this was "Rocky IV" with the volume turned much higher with Rusev taking on the role of Ivan Drago was the highlight of this match. And he wasn’t finished there, he was coming from backstage in an actual tank. Rusev stood proud on the military vehicle as he waved the Russian flag to make WWE boo him and it did work. regardless of the grand entrance, Rusev eventually failed to beat Cena to add to his impressive winning streak as he suffered his first clean loss in WWE.

The New Day: #WrestleMania 32

WWE making three mid-carders apparently with no hope in WWE and putting them together as "The New Day" was indeed a masterstroke by the WWE creative. This tag team faction of Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E are still doing incredibly well today with Kofi earning a spot to take on Daniel Bryan for the Smackdown's "world heavyweight title" on Sunday at WrestleMania 35.
There was a time when many fans criticized WWE for putting these three wrestlers together. And three years back the New Day took part in the most ridiculous entrance in the history of WWE when they appeared from a giant cereal box that was placed at the side of the entrance. With full of Booty O’s, The New Day made an appearance their way out of the box and into the ring with The League of Nations. Nonetheless, the funniest thing is that their entrance outshone the whole match due to the wildness that encircled it.

Steve Austin: #WrestleMania 13

Stone cold, aka "The Rattlesnake", took a huge walk as a malcontent wrestling character in the early part of 1997 and his feud with Bret Hart, aka "the hitman", heading into WrestleMania 13 was a battle that has arguably changed Austin's WWE career forever. And due to his character to fasten musicians and light shows to a "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's ring walk would be to disgrace the man who went about this business in a no-nonsense manner.
Well, long before basketball court-sized stages became the standard at WrestleMania, wrestlers would make do with the same curtain. However, at Mania 13, a screen was constructed instead which Austin said he never liked on several interviews. Apparently,  when it was Austin’s turn to make his entrance, the words “Austin 3:16” appeared on the big screen before smashing in and sync with his legendary entrance theme. And the match was debatably the greatest match in WWE history, and that brought Austin to the next level.

Edge: #WrestleMania 24

Despite the fact that Undertaker’s streak was considered to be the most talk about in WWE, Brock Lesnar shockingly ended it in 2014. But the real chance of it ever being broken before Lesnar crushed was it the match in 2008 when Edge was the only believable superstar left with the task of beating The Undertaker at WrestleMania for the first time.
As he appeared from the backstage, Edge, standing alone with his world title fastened firmly around his waist, took in the entire crowd as a deafening firework show went off around him. For years, there were questions raised about Edge’s main event potential, but they were all put to rest after that night. Undertaker kept his record intact, but it was a stunning effort from Edge who matched “The Deadman” every step of the match.

CM Punk: #WrestleMania 29

The self-proclaimed "best in the world" CM Punk, who would be gone from the company by the time the nest WWE PPV’s next aired into the City. And man, what a way to walk out as he took on The Undertaker who is easily the WWE’s standout performer in the last five-six years. Heading into WrestleMania 29, Punk was on a new gimmick where he always spoke his mind and complained about those people who were running the company. His new heel persona placed him in incredible feuds with the likes of John Cena, The Shield, and The Rock. But at WrestleMania, a heel Punk, with Paul Heyman by his side, was on a mission to break Undertaker's streak.
C.M punk was arguably the hottest thing in WWE at that point of time. And his most notable song, "Cult of Personality," to the live crowd in New Jersey was phenomenal as it showed appreciation for Punk’s suitable entrance music by the hardcore fanbase of WWE. For years, Punk had raised his voice about not being given the superstar treatment by those handling the higher post in WWE. Nonetheless, there was no way he could have any injustice with how his employers made him look.

Ultimate Warrior: #WrestleMania 7 

Initially, Warrior was still a heel within the territory, managed by Gary Hart, though he was cheered throughout a heel versus heel feud with WCWA World Heavyweight Champion Rick Rude when the 2 fell out throughout a tag match. And that showed how exactly fans loved him. But regardless of his incredible popularity in the late 1980s and early into the following decade, The Ultimate Warrior perhaps only participated in two memorable feuds. 
His initial run with Hulk Hogan at the beginning of 1990 made him reach the pinnacle in Warrior and made him win the company’s biggest prize at WrestleMania 6 in Toronto Cannada. But it was in the following year, in Los Angeles, where Warrior hit the pinnacle of his career thanks to his stunning match with "Macho Man" Randy Savage, which featured an entrance that fans had never witnessed before.
Famed for his typical energetic sprints to the ring, the seriousness of his contest with Savage due to both wrestlers’ careers being on the line ensured Warrior took his time when approaching ringside. As fans inside the arena waited for the curtains to explode and Warrior to emerge, they were shocked to see him walk to the ring.
Moving at a slow pace as he considered his upcoming bout with Randy Savage, this basic alter of Warrior’s usual high-octane gallop ensured we were watching his full concentration and focus. The match indeed delivered as the man claimed the victory, but his grand entrance to the match was one of the standout highlights of the match.

The Undertaker: #WrestleMania 20

Well, whenever the topic of best entrance comes out Undertaker always comes to our mind. There is such a wide collection of Undertaker entrances fit for this list including spectacular shows at WrestleMania 19 and 29. But his return to the "Deadman" gimmick in 2004 was without a shadow of a doubt the best of his career. With the majority of fans tired of Taker’s biker gimmick, the return to the character that shot him to superstardom was always going to arrive, but reaching its destination took a long time perhaps WrestleMania was the perfect platform to unleash it for the second time.
The kayfabe and storyline to attend as an injury at the previous year’s Survivor Series at the hands of Kane, Taker tormented his storyline brother for months before returning at Mania. With Kane already in the ring waiting for him, the infamous squawk of Paul Bearer’s "Oh Yes" indicated that Taker was back in his original gimmick and the crowd at Madison Square Garden melted down for it. Despite the fact that the match was dud, Taker’s entrance was easily one of the showcase’s most memorable.

John Cena: #WrestleMania 25

The Warm receptions for the poster boy John Cena have been missing at WrestleMania for quite a long time. Before becoming an isolating wrestler around 2005, Cena, in the early days of his Hip Hop gimmick, received unconditional support from the crowd. However, for a number of reasons, the cheers were swiftly transferred into the cheers of pain. At WrestleMania 25, the Cenation leader wasn't alone when being booed, he had brought an army to help him persist the bile of the crowd inside Reliant Stadium in Texas.

Before making his way to the ring in his typical tough guy fashion, more than 100 Cena clones appeared on the stage before occupying positions on the ramp to form a guard of honor for their man they were imitating. With boos still audible, Cena, as always, dismissed the crowd’s dissatisfaction as he made his way through the tunnel of Cenas as they performed the Westbury man’s "You Can't See Me" pose. Cena went on to win the world heavyweight title in a triple threat match with Edge and Big Show, but the sight of Cena being spurred on by his huge number of an army was the real highlight.

Triple H: #WrestleMania 22

Whether you had Triple H peg-top as a real king or not, this made the whole idea seem pretty cool. Whilst donning some charismatic gimmick and sitting upon his throne, HHH's entrance in Chicago at WrestleMania 22 had to be seen to be believed. The whole thing was a mixture of bizarre and outstanding, with pretty much every fan inside the arena pulling for The Game to defeat John Cena.
It's times like these that HHH seems more cyborg than a man because his stone cold expression when coming to the ring never fails to send chills down the spine of fans all around the world. You may hate the guy, but you can't deny that on this night he managed to grab the attention of the entire WWE Universe. That's something, right?
We move nine years into the future where the "cyborg" term took on a whole new meaning.

Shawn Michaels: WrestleMania 12

Shawn Michaels, aka mr.wrestlemania, knew how to make an entrance, and that believed was turned right up whenever the Texas man performed at WrestleMania. With a body of work from the event that stands out far more than any other WWE performer in history, Michaels’ "Mr. WrestleMania" moniker was richly deserved, and two years after first establishing that alias at WrestleMania 10, Michaels finally went all the way as he won the big one from Bret Hart in a 60-minute Iron Man match where he made one of the grandest entrances ever.

The Heart Break Kid was lowered into the ring via a zip line as the crowd underneath reached out to touch him in any shape or form. Michaels than landed in the crowd and was mobbed immediately before his manager for the match, Jose Lothario, reminded him what was about to ensure. His match with Hitman didn’t live up to expectations with far too many rest periods, but Michaels’ entrance signaled that he was going to grab the world title from “Hitman” for the first time in his career.

Bottom line:

Giving the best WrestleMania entrance plays a huge role in every pro-wrestlers career. A unique entrance could even make a particular superstar over with the fans. Likewise, some of these WrestleMania entrances are some of the best entrances that would be remembered for years to come. Hopefully, we'll see more mouth-watering entrances this year as well as in the coming future.
