Far From Great, But Not "Worst Ever" Either
11 February 2019 | by zkonedogSee all my reviews

WrestleMania XI has gained a bit of reputation as being one of (if not the) worst WrestleManias in the history of the WWE. Considering the fallow period that the company was going through at the time--having their stars poached by the WCW and not yet countering with the Attitude Era--I can understand the sentiment. However, though nowhere near a success by any means, this event isn't quite as bad as its rep.

The trouble here isn't necessarily a lack of talent. Wrestlers like The Undertaker, Razor Ramon, Shawn Michaels, Diesel, and Bret Hart are all solid and put on pretty good shows. The trouble is that they are matched up wrong all over the card.

Some examples...

-Razor has to carry the dud Jeff Jarrett (never got much of a WWE pop), while Undertaker has similar duties with King Kong Bundy. -Owen Hart forming a tag team with Yokozuna? Give me a break. -Bret Hart is the leading member (and best performer) in the company at the time, yet he's embarrassingly paired with Bob Backlund mid-card. -Michaels & Diesel put on probably the best overall match of the night, but inexplicably the main event is Bam Bam Bigelow vs. the NFL's Lawrence Taylor?! There's no excuse for not swapping those final two matches in the order of the proceedings.

So, in the end, WrestleMania XI fails not because there isn't enough talent present, but more because that talent is mismatched and misplaced all over the card. I can't remember if things would get worse for the WWE before they got better, but at this point everything was just so uneven from event to event.
