10 Fascinating WWE WrestleMania 2 Facts 

10. It's The Only WrestleMania Held On A Monday


Author's Indulgent Note: Between 1991 and 1994, I was in 2nd through 5th grade, and always thought how strange it was to go to school the day of a live WWE pay-per-view (in this case, Thanksgiving Eve editions of Survivor Series). Being only two years old in early-1986, I wasn't even aware of what wrestling was, but I imagine for others it might have felt a bit peculiar to have school the same day as a WrestleMania, particularly in hindsight.

Really, there's no known reason why WrestleMania 2 was held on a Monday, but maybe it's actually not too unusual. Most major Madison Square Garden shows of the day took place on Monday nights a few times out of the year, so perhaps having a WrestleMania on a school-day wasn't so far-fetched for the era.
