Welcome to an article all about WrestleMania X-Seven. It is, without hyperbole, the glow of nostalgia nor the benefit of hindsight, the greatest pay-per-view in WWE history.
If you've made it this far through this WrestleMania-based series of Ups and Downs, it's quite possibly because this show served as a payoff to all of them - or at very least the previous four (and if it is the case, please stick around to read the next 17).
That's if you've even read the others. Perhaps you're only here because of this particular 'Show Of Shows'. Here to reminisce, to remind yourself, or to remember. To double check that the 'Grandest Stage' was never grander than on April 1st 2001. To confirm that all your thoughts and memories, long-held over decades, were still true. Here for familiarity, rather than surprise.
Like the fine wines Vince McMahon probably quaffed by the bucketload whilst lighting cigars with c-notes at the time, this show improves with age...
Square eyes on a square head, trained almost exclusively to Pro Wrestling, Sunderland AFC & Paul Rudd films. Responsible for 'Shocking Plans You Won't Believe Actually Happened', some of the words in our amazing Wrestling bookazines (both available at shop.whatculture.com), and probably every website list you read that praised Kevin Nash.
