It’s how you start the show. WrestleMania has one of the deepest histories of any wrestling show of all time. The event began all the way back in 1985 and even today, when the show is going to be nothing compared to its usual self, WWE is likely going to have something out there to make the event feel special. A lot of that comes down to video and that is where WWE is going today.
Whether they meant to or not, WWE turned their opening video packages into great history lessons about their upcoming shows. The videos do a great job of recapping stories and showing you why you are here. That wasn’t always the case though as some of the earlier videos were more about reminding you that you were watching WWE. A look back could be interesting and WWE has you covered.
Let’s get it started. Check out WWE’s latest countdown:
WWE has released a countdown of every WrestleMania intro of all time in order from the first event through the most recent, with WrestleMania 35. The videos also include the first shots of the arena or stadium, with a bit of commentary or intro from the ring announcers. The latter videos include little more than the sponsor of the show being announced with nothing involving what will be taking place.
Opinion: This is one of those things that offers an interesting look of where things have gone and where they have gone. WrestleMania is the most important WWE show of the year and having the show get off to a hot start is one of the best things that the company can do every year. They know how to make these things work and while this was good, it could have been better with the full intros included.
