I originally wrote the majority of this article as it exists today and I can affirm to Lbmixpro or anyone else that my contributions to this article are not copied from another source. I used accounts of the event on other sites to write the article, but the article itself is my own work. --Chrysaor 17:25, Apr 5, 2005 (UTC)

Acknowledged. But the article still needs some wikification. --LBMixPro(Holla back!) 00:36, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
That should do it. --Chrysaor 16:43, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)

Rock pinned Hogan after two Rock Bottoms and a People's Elbow.Rock pinned Hogan after two Rock Bottoms and a People's Elbow.Hogan was supposed to be the heel in this match, having run down an ambulance containing The Rock with a semi truck a few weeks previous. However, the fans turned on Rock and cheered for Hogan to win. Every time Hogan touched The Rock, the crowd erupted in thunderous cheers; likewise, any offense by Rocky was met by a chorus of boos. Alas, The Rock put a hurting on the Hulkster. The Rock slapped on the Sharpshooter. This would have been only the third time Hogan has been defeated via submission. The first time was at WCW Monday Nitro in 1997 when he was defeated by Lex Luger, then later in the same year at WCW Starrcade when he was defeated by Sting). The Rock let go of the hold and tried to revive the ref, but Hogan gave him a low blow. Hogan got The Rock in his own Rock Bottom. Hogan covered but only got a two-count. The Rock gave Hogan a Rock Bottom of his own but Hogan kicked out. Hogan 'hulked up' and got the Leg drop but The Rock kicked out. The Rock finally got the pin with two more Rock Bottoms followed by the People's Elbow, which turned The Rock into a face in the eyes of the SkyDome crowd once more. After the match, Hogan offered his hand to the victorious Rock, and the Rock took it to the cheers of the fans. As Rocky was leaving, Nash and Hall chided Hogan for his conciliatory attitude and started to attack him, but Rocky made the save and then as a sign of respect, The Rock stopped Hulk from leaving the ring and asked him to pose for the crowd.(26:57) —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheTruth2 (talkcontribs)

Not notable, the article is not about the history behind the match. It is about the event. The text you added is full of grammatical errors and is already summarized above it. Please do not re-add the text and sign your comments! --3bulletproof16 20:09, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Bullet. People come here to get info. These events happened in the match. Leave it in.—Preceding unsigned comment added by TheTruth2 (talkcontribs)

The information has already been stated in the article.--3bulletproof16 20:14, 25 July 2006 (UTC)


No it doesn't. It states nothing about the match. along with the other matches—Preceding unsigned comment added by TheTruth2 (talkcontribs)

I did. Leave it in It is not vandalism.--TheTruth2 20:21, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Bullet it is summarizing the match leave it in. THis is your last warning--TheTruth2 20:31, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Summary[edit]

Bullet just to make you happy I took the article thru a grammer check and took out anything that needed citations. Once again this is a summary of the match which people come here to see. YOu cannot find it anywhere else here.--TheTruth2 15:48, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Please go to Wikipedia: WikiProject Professional Wrestling to see how you are supposed to format a wrestling results page. TJ Spyke 19:43, 26 July 2006 (UTC)


My edit follows the page. Leave it in. I have alerted the staff in regards to your edits. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheTruth2 (talkcontribs)

I have done nothinw wrong. I am the one formatting the show the correct way and I hope they see that. TJ Spyke 19:49, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

I am following all the rules. The Hogan and Rock pages do not mention the match in detial like this article should.--TheTruth2 19:50, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

You are still not following th guidelines agreed upon by at at WikiProject: Professional Wrestling. I have submitted this issue for arbitration since you don't seem to get that you are wrong and should stop changin my correct edits. TJ Spyke 20:05, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

  • When writing results, the match result should be in bold, followed by a second point (**) on any notable points in the match. If there are no notbale points, refer to point

I am following the guidelines. Hence the bold.

Also If you are concerned about the wrestling pages on this site, YOu should as well have summaries of the matches. If lets say No Way Ot. Hogan vs Rock or whomever, a person wanting to read about No Way Out would like to read the summaries of the match which happened at that event. Since their is nowhere else to go except for other wrestling sites on the web. WHich I assume you do not want--TheTruth2 20:08, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Just have summaries of the matches. It will help promote your project. You would have more people coming to your sites More people more word out on the "street". will hear about you. It might help your project achieve some of your goals--TheTruth2 20:18, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

To summarize what TheTruth has been trying to say, it's generally not necessary to rewrite a Wikipedia entry for a major wrestling event. Usually those of us who are already members of the pro wrestling project have edited them down to a consistant (within themselves and to other articles) format that lists wrestlers and results, and links to the names of the wrestlers and their own Wikipedia pages. Adding MORE information clutters things up. Now if you see a grammatical error correct it, and if you see a factual error correct it, but if you're editing in a play-by-play description of the matches "Hogan fans cheered, Rock fans cheered, so and so did this, the People's Elbow, the big boot, the rock bottom the leg drop and what'chu gonna do brother" that's completely unnecessary on this site. There are a zillion websites out there that already have play-by-play, and plenty of links to them. (Please also remember Wikipedia is not a "link farm" so don't add links to those sites.)

Roman Numerals and Numbers[edit]

The article says in trivia that this is the first event to feature a name with Roman numerals and Arabic numbers. This is untrue as the previous year was the first. The text is the same on both pages as well.G0aT CheEZeY 22:14, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Incorrect -
WrestleMania X-Seven says: ...title included a combination of a Roman numeral and a number being spelled out
WrestleMania X8 says: ...title included a combination of a Roman numeral and Arabic numeral -- bulletproof 3:16 22:26, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

My bad. Thanks for clearing this up for me.G0aT CheEZeY 18:39, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Triple-H's Entrance[edit]

Tha article states that this was the third time HHH was played to the ring by a live band. That is incorrect, as this was the second time. He has been played to the ring at a WM on a third occassion, but that didn't happen until three years at WrestleMania 21. --HDC7777 13:09, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

He was played down by a band at Wrestlemania XIV, X-Seven, and X-8. Three times. -- 64.19.152.102 20:06, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Theme Songs[edit]

I just re-watched WMX8 last night and I think the article should say "the theme songs were Tear Away" by Drowning Pool and "Superstar" by Saliva" rather than "The official theme song for the event was 'Tear Away' by Drowning Pool. The secondary theme song was "Superstar" by Saliva. I don't think either song was more prominent. Both bands performed the song, Tear Away was played during the background most of the time, but Superstar was on the WMX8 highlight music video at the end of the event. Mark handscombe (talk) 07:22, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Tear Away was also the intro song during the opening pyro. -- bulletproof 3:16 08:10, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
Actually, that was dubbed in for the DVD. You can tell the crowd noise is fake. SuperStar played originally. Mshake3 (talk) 04:47, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Anyone see Wrestlemania 18 on wwe 24/7 this month? They actually dubbed over the NWO theme music for both Hogan's and Scott Hall's entrance. WTF? Don't they own the rights? They've been playing it on all the old Nitros. I really hope this isn't a sign of things to come. The audio dubs kill the notsalgia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Justnashole (talkcontribs) 17:00, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

No they don't own the rights (it's a licensed song). They also dubbed over the nWo them for the WrestleMania box set. Just like they dub over other songs too (like for this same event, they dubbed over Undertaker's them at the time "Rollin'" with his Ministry of Darkness theme). TJ Spyke 17:09, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Regarding new edits[edit]

I made new edits to the page.


While HHH/Jericho closed the event, it was far from the main feud heading into it. The whole thing took a backseat to the Rock and Austin vs nWo feud, particularly the Rock/Hogan match which was the most hyped match for that event. Since that storyline got the most hype and attention, it was really the main storyline, while HHH vs Jericho was secondary. Hell, I think Taker vs Flair was a bigger storyline that HHH/Jericho.

I didn't change the fact it was the main event though, or the last match on the card. However I think calling it the main feud and storyline is a bit of a stretch, especially since I saw the WM23 article and it had the main feud be Vince vs Trump, when Rock/Hogan and Hogan/McMahon got the same amount of hype over the championship matches, along with Show/Mayweather. Neither were the closing matches, but all of them were the biggest and central matches of their respective PPVs. Nowadays the title match is hardly the main feud or storyline. —Preceding unsigned comment added by BigShow189 (talkcontribs) 21:08, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

It has been reverted due to lack of reliable sources, original research, not to mention being badly written. -- bulletproof 3:16 21:15, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

RVD vs. Regal[edit]

The paragraph about the intercontinental championship contradicts itself. It says RVD defended his intercontinental championship, and won his first intercontinental championship. - Dunc0029 (talk) 21:22, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Hardcore title matches[edit]

Why hardcore title matches (with the exception of Maven vs. Goldust) are not counting in the results section? Technically they all are matches for the title, and as far as I'm concerned, HAVE to be counted.176.36.57.234 (talk) 21:36, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
