Top 10 Best Wrestlemania Opening Matches


The Top Ten

1 Bret Hart vs Owen Hart - WrestleMania X Bret Hart vs Owen Hart - WrestleMania X

By far the best opener in WrestleMania history a technical wrestling masterpiece as both Hart brothers went all out. - egnomac

2 Daniel Bryan vs Triple H - Wrestlemania XXX

After all the complaining by the fans WWE finally gave in and gave Daniel Bryan the spotlight that he truly deserved with an amazing opener against Triple H with the winner being added to the WWE World Heavyweight title match with Randy Orton and Batista, Triple H did everything he could do to try and put an end to Daniel Bryan's WrestleMania dreams but Bryan difed the odds and defeated the game to go on to the main event and win the World title making him the only superstar to compete and win both the opening and main event at WrestleMania. - egnomac

3 Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio - WrestleMania 21

A really underrated match and one of the best opening matches at WrestleMania it would be Guerrero's last WrestleMania match. - egnomac

4 CM Punk vs Shelton Benjamin vs Kane vs Christian vs Kofi Kingston vs MVP vs Mark Henry vs Finlay (Money in The Bank Ladder Match) - WrestleMania 25
5 Edge vs Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy vs Finlay vs Mr. Kennedy vs King Booker vs CM Punk vs Randy Orton (Money in the Bank Ladder Match) - WrestleMania 23

While it doesn't have star power as the earlier Money in the Bank ladder matches but there were so many crazy moments like Jeff Hardy leaping of the ladder crashing through Edge, King Booker sacrificing the MITB briefcase to save Sharmell, Randy Orton RKOing CM Punk off the ladder and Mr. Kennedy hitting his move with Hornswoggle off the ladder. - egnomac

6 Daniel Bryan vs Dean Ambrose vs Bad News Barret vs Dolph Ziggler vs R-Truth vs Stardust vs Luke Harper - WrestleMania 31
7 Edge vs Alberto del Rio - WrestleMania XXVII

A great opener to a terrible WrestleMania but it was still a pretty good match with it being Edge's final WrestleMania match. - egnomac

8 AJ Styles vs Shane McMahon - WrestleMania 33

While it may have been one of the most random match ups in WrestleMania it was still a pretty great match even though Shane was past his prime. - egnomac

9 Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn vs Dolph Ziggler vs Sin Cara vs The Miz vs Stardust vs Zack Ryder - WrestleMania 32

Another really great ladder match that saw Zack Ryder getting his WrestleMania moment before being mercifully taken away from him the next night. - egnomac

10 John Cena vs Big Show - WrestleMania XX

Marked John Cena's WrestleMania debut and his first Championship win though not as great as most WrestleMania openers it was still a good opener and a sign of things to come later that night. - egnomac
