Wrestlemania XVIII (or `X8') was held on March 17th, 2002, at the Skydome in Toronto, and I was fortunate enough to witness the live event in person. But when viewed with some perspective in 2010, Wrestlemania X8, well, it ain't that great. The biggest WWF pay-per-view of 2002 featured, for better or worse, many of the key stars of the WWF's `Attitude era', and several of the main players in the WWF / WCW `Monday Night War' of 1995 - 2001. For this reason, the show was the nearest thing the fans ever got to a climatic blow-off to that legendary struggle. Following Vince McMahon's purchase of his competition in early 2001, the resulting official WCW `Invasion' had been a washout, due in large part to a total lack of genuine WCW headline wrestlers taking part; but this was followed up, a few months too late, by the hiring of Ric Flair, and the NWO trio of Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall, collectively the dominant power players behind WCW, and on whose appearances Wrestlemania X8 was primarily sold to the fans.
By far the most heavily promoted of the four, Hogan (formerly McMahon's meal ticket during the 1980s and early 1990s) came to dominate the run-up to the pay-per-view to such a degree that his `dream' match with The Rock was allowed to overshadow everything else on the card; and their bout was a great spectacle, featuring Hogan's best in-ring performance since he faced the Ultimate Warrior in the same building at Wrestlemania VI, twelve years before. As a member of the crowd on the night, I remember the fever that overtook the building as everyone `marked out' like crazy for Hogan, and abandoned all loyalty to The Rock, despite the fact that he was, at that stage, the WWF figurehead, their most popular fan favourite, and arguably the most skilled all-rounder in the business.

By IWFIcon VINE VOICE on 16 May 2010
I was lucky enough to be at the Skydome in Toronto on March 17th 2002 for WrestleMania X8 and it's fair to say that the moment when Hulk Hogan's music kicked in and he made his way to the ring, I experienced Wrestling Nirvana. It's easy to be cynical about professional wrestling and those that don't "get it" never will, but there was something genuinely special about seeing Hulk Hogan against The Rock that words alone could never quite explain sufficiently. And in fact, the atmosphere and the electricity in the air cannot even get close to being done justice by watching this DVD.

All of which causes a slight problem. Whilst WM X8 is far from a one match card, it's only that one match which is fondly remembered by most concerned and as it loses a little of it's sparkle on the small screen this DVD is fighting un uphill battle after that.

There is some entertaining stuff on the under-card to be viewed; Ric Flair against The Undertaker, for instance is a lot better than I ever thought it would be) and maybe it's just me, but Diamond Dallas Page's obvious thrill at wrestling at WM makes his match with Christian entertaining. There's also the ever watchable Kurt Angle carrying Kane to one of his better matches. But that last match is symptomatic of the show in many respects.

Why is Angle fighting in a mid-card match that no-one has really made any effort for us to care about? Why "showcase" Rob Van Dam in a match where his opponent (William Regal) is so ill-suited to his style? Why are Edge & Booker T fighting over a Shampoo endorsement? (And their match is SO important that it was inadvertently left of the disc contents listing in the poster that came with the original release). Why is Steve Austin given a throwaway match with Scott Hall?

In my mind WrestleMania X-8 in the Skydome in Toronto will always be remembered because of the famous match up between the immortal Hulk Hogan and the Peoples Champ The Rock. Since only watching WrestleMania X-8 last week, i got to say i loved every minute of it, not only because of the Rock vs Hogan match but there were some pretty damn good matches that i enjoyed so much.

Intercontinental Championship Match ***
William Regal vs. Rob Van Dam

A great opening contest and it was RVD's first WrestleMania and without a shadow of a doubt, he was impressive. William Regal didn't perform too bad but as soon as RVD hit his special, Regal was out for the count. A watchable match where RVD walks out the new Intercontinental Champion.

European Championship Match ***
Diamond Dallas Page vs. Christian

A surprisingly good match between Christian and DDP as most people said that this match weren't brill. This match i was pretty much into, DDP was the impressive star and glad to see him retain the European Title.

Hardcore Championship Match **
Maven vs. Goldust

A match that really didn't go on long but i was glad to see that some weapons were used. The one thing great about the Hardcore Title was that it was changing hands every 20-25 mins and the belt was going to the likes of Spike Dudley, The Hurricane, Molly Holly, Christian and a shocking Maven. I still to this day think that the best WrestleMania hardcore match has to be the one at WrestleMania X-7.

Kurt Angle vs. Kane ****

One of my sub favourites of the event thinking that this has got to be one of Kurt Angles best matches of his WWE career. I mean he really gave it to Kane.
