Wrestlemania vi

The meaning of «wrestlemania vi»

WrestleMania VI was the sixth WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) and the first to be held outside of the United States. It took place on April 1, 1990, at SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with an announced attendance of 67,678—then a record for Skydome.

Aside from its record-breaking attendance, the event is arguably best remembered for "The Ultimate Challenge"—the main event match which saw Hulk Hogan (WWF Champion) vs. The Ultimate Warrior (WWF Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion), in which both championship titles were on the line. On February 3, 1990, a week after Hogan and Warrior crossed paths in the 1990 Royal Rumble match, Hogan put forth "The Ultimate Challenge" to Warrior, and had to know whether Hulkamania or the power of Warrior was the strongest force in the WWF. On February 10, the match was officially announced as the main event of WrestleMania VI by then WWF President Jack Tunney. On February 24, Tunney announced that both the WWF Championship and Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship would be on the line for the first time ever during the match. At WrestleMania VI, Warrior won his sole WWF Championship.

WrestleMania is considered World Wrestling Federation's (WWF, now WWE) flagship event, having first been held in 1985. It has become the longest-running professional wrestling event in history and is held annually between mid-March to mid-April.[2] It was the first of WWF's original four pay-per-views, which includes Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series, which were eventually dubbed the "Big Four".[3] It eventually became described as the Super Bowl of sports entertainment.[4]

Robert Goulet sang a rendition of O Canada before the event.

Future multi-time world champions Edge[5] and Christian[6][7] were in attendance, as were Lance Storm and Renee Young. Diamond Dallas Page had a cameo on the show driving Rhythm and Blues and Jimmy Hart to the ring in his pink Cadillac.[8] Actor Stephen Amell, who would go on to compete in a match at SummerSlam in 2015, was also in attendance.[9] Mary Tyler Moore was sitting at ringside, and there was a backstage segment with Steve Allen and The Bolsheviks (Boris Zhukov and Nikolai Volkoff). Columnist Rona Barrett interviewed Miss Elizabeth at the event.

Because Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion The Ultimate Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan to win the WWF Championship, Warrior was forced to vacate the Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship, as the rules prohibited any wrestler from holding more than one singles belt simultaneously. An eight-man tournament was held, conducted on the WWF's syndicated Superstars of Wrestling and Wrestling Challenge, with Mr. Perfect winning the title by defeating Tito Santana in the finals.

When Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake defeated Mr. Perfect at Wrestlemania VI, it was billed as Perfect's first pinfall loss in the WWF. However, in reality, Perfect had been pinned by The Ultimate Warrior in a match at Madison Square Garden that aired on the MSG Network less than two weeks prior to WrestleMania.[10]
