Hello and welcome to another WrestleMania Countdown, I’m Joe. Last week, I took you back to WrestleMania 17 for the TLC match between Edge & Christian, The Hardy Boyz and The Dudley Boyz, this week, I’m taking you back much further. March 29th, 1987. The Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan. An EPIC encounter for the WWF Intercontinental Championship, Macho Man Randy Savage defending his Intercontinental Championship against Ricky The Dragon Steamboat.
This will go down as easily one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history, both of these men revolutionized high flying wrestling in the mainstream, these guys were doing things nobody else was at the time, not to mention the amazing chemistry these two had in the ring together. Steamboat came out on top and became the WWF Intercontinental Champion, George The Animal Steele was also a great addition, the match lasted about 15 minutes, but it seemed longer to me, this may have just been the case of fitting a ton of stuff into a certain amount of time, but when I first watched this match it seemed pretty long, I could watch this match anytime and it would still be just as good as it was then. I loved the storytelling both men did in the ring, and the addition of George The Animal Steele and his fascination with Miss. Elizabeth was great as well. I would recommend any of you watch this match, I think you’d enjoy it a great deal.
Thank you for checking out this weeks pick, I hope you guys come back next week, next week I will reveal my #1 pick for my favorite match in WrestleMania history.
