Welcome back. It’s no secret that Wrestlemania is the biggest wrestling show of the year. It has the biggest matches and the biggest moments but it also often has some major returns. Wrestlers come back after a long time away from the company and that can make for some Wrestlemania moments. Time for a countdown!

WrestleMania's memorable returns: WWE Top 10, March 24, 2018

WWE has released a Top Ten video of the most memorable Wrestlemania returns. Some of these are in matches and some of them are in segments, but most of them were surprises. As usual, this runs throughout the history of the show, dating back well over twenty years in some cases.

Opinion: These are always a lot of fun as you never know who might be brought in for either a one off appearance or for a fresh run with the company. WWE is rather willing to forgive past transgressions for the sake of a surprise or of course for the sake of making money. If the fans get a great moment out of it and have a lot of fun as a result, I guess I can live with it.

You knew this would be high on the list.
