4.0 out of 5 stars VIII edges VII, 28 April 2008
This review is from: WWE Tagged Classics (Wrestlemania 7[1991] / Wrestlemania 8 [1992]) [DVD] (DVD)
The two last Wrestlemania's of the classic Hulkamania era (I don't count the cameo in the awful IX) The most surprising aspect of Wrestlemania VII was the quality of the Warrior match! Savage is a great worker and a methodical perfectionist who carried Warrior through probably his best ever match. Great storytelling and a vintage WWF style ending with Miss Elizabeth. The Rockers also deserve a mention and put on a good match against Haku and The Barbarian. It's a shame they didn't get a legitimate and noted championship run. The Jake Roberts vs Rick Martel blindfold match had all the makings of an embarrassment but other than it being a little too long, it was actually a lot of fun and a decent ending to a storyline that only Roberts was capable of pulling off. Great drama as expected. The Hogan vs Slaughter match rounded things off in a largely forgettable main event noted only really for the fact that Hogan bladed.
3 stars.

Wrestlemania VIII saw the passing of the torch from the old guard to the new breed with the younger guys getting the job done. This event is notable for two classic matches. Firstly, the Bret Hart vs Piper IC title match was very well worked. Bret took a kicking and the two traded technique and brawling very smoothly. It was clear that these two knew each other well and the chemistry was great. Bret really got over after this match. The second was between two of the greats, Flair vs Savage. They didn't have much time to prepare a story but if Flair and Savage can't put on a good match together then nobody can. A rarely mentioned, often forgotten 5 star match. The main event was Hogan vs Flair......oh wait, that's what it should have been, that's what people wanted but Hogan had other ideas and took on Sid. The match was a bit of a mess. Papa Shango got his timing wrong and botched the ending forcing Sid to quietly kick out of the Hogan leg drop. It was nice seeing the Warrior do what he does best...running to the ring, shaking the ropes and posing.
