Top 10 WrestleMania Firsts

As the title suggest these are the top firsts to happen at a WrestleMania.

The Top Ten

1 First WWE Superstar to Compete in the Opening and Main Event at a WrestleMania - Bret Hart, WrestleMania X

Breat Hart competed in the opening match at WrestleMania X losing to his brother Owen and later competed in the main event against Yokozuna to win the WWE Championship, 20 years later Daniel Bryan would follow this act only this time winning both the opening and main event match at WrestleMania XXX. - egnomac

2 First WWE Superstar to Win and Lose the WWE Championship at a WrestleMania - Randy Macho Man Savage, WrestleMania IV & V

Ironically Randy Savage not only won the WWE Championship via a tournament at WrestleMania IV but lost the tile a year later at WrestleMania V which was again in the same building the Trump Plaza Hotel where he won the title in the first place. - egnomac

3 First WWE Championship Title Defense - Hulk Hogan vs King Kong Bundy, WrestleMania 2

Oddly enough the WWE Championship was not defended at the first WrestleMania it wouldn't be until WM 2 where Hulk Hogan defended the WWE championship against King Kong Bundy in a steel cage match with Hogan emerging victorious. - egnomac

4 First WrestleMania Main Event Rematch - Bret Hart vs Yokozuna WrestleMania X

Hart lost the WWE title at WrestleMania IX to Yokozuna the next year Hart would again face off against Yokozuna once again in the main event only this time Hart came out victorious wining the championship from Yokozuna and before anyone says anything I am aware that Hogan came out after the main event of WM IX to win the title from Yokozuna. - egnomac

5 First Hell in a Cell Match at a WrestleMania - WrestleMania XV Undertaker vs Big Bossman

The first Hell in a Cell Match at WrestleMania and sadly was nothing to be proud of as the match was short and forgettable with the exception of when Taker hung the Big Boss Man from the cell, there wouldn't be another hell in a cell match at WrestleMania until 13 years later at WrestleMania XXVIII where Triple H and Undertaker clashed in the End of an Era. - egnomac

6 First Ladder Match at a WrestleMania - Shawn Michaels vs Razor Ramon, WrestleMania X

Not the first ladder match in WWE but defiantly the first Ladder match at a WrestleMania which would lead to the triangle ladder match at WM 2000, TLC II or III if you count the ladder match from WM 2000 which in many ways where the TLC concept really started all the way to the birth of the Money in the Bank Ladder match at WrestleMania 21. - egnomac

7 First WrestleMania Match - Tito Santana vs The Executioner
8 First WWE Title Change at a WrestleMania - The Iron Sheik and Nikolai Volkoff vs The U.S. Express, WrestleMania 1
9 First WrestleMania Main Event Match to End in a Submission - Triple H vs Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit, WrestleMania XX

The moment where Christ Benoit made history by forcing then champ Triple H to tap and claim the world title though according to WWE this moment never happened. - egnomac

10 First WrestleMania Squash Match - King Kong Bundy vs SD Jones, WrestleMania 1

The first of mant squash matches to come at future WrestleMania's with King Kong Bundy squashing SD Jones in 24 seconds not 9 seconds as WWE continues to lie about. - egnomac
