10 Best Attires In WWE WrestleMania History

Fixing up and looking sharp on the Grandest Stage Of Them All...

WrestleMania is prom night for our favourite WWE Superstars. It's the night they spend an entire year looking forward to so everything has to go right - it's the one night of the year where they don't want to make a fool of themselves - it's the one night of the year where they want to be at their optimum. You know how it goes...

It's also the one night of the year where they don't want to end up collapsed in a hotel room alone with their cheek stuck to the floor adjacent to a bottle of strong alcohol wondering where it all went wrong while dying in a pool of their own self-pity... this is NOT how my own prom night ended up way back in 2007.

Because WrestleMania is the biggest night of the year where moments that live on for several lifetimes take place, our favourite RASSLERS like to live out some sort of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen fantasy by taking their gear to the very next level.

WWE meets one of those fashion shows where the host takes a decent looking person and makes them look like one of those Barbie dolls your child can plaster in makeup... some go too far, but the following 10 Superstars got their gear spouting out those hundred point emoji things all the kids rave about today.

Obviously, because I wear nothing outside of dark t-shirts and Cultaholic Hall Of Fame jeans I'm definitely qualified enough to write this article...

10. LOD 2000 & Sunny - WrestleMania XIV


WWE


IKR?! I'm including an attire that is hiding the single best muscle gut in the history of professional wrestling - Animal, I salute your muscle gut, friend.

When it comes to professional wrestling few teams looked as consistently great as The Road Warriors/Legion of Doom/LOD 2000. Their look was iconic. timeless, and as you can see here, tweakable enough to look really modern as well - I guess that's what timeless is, but you know what I mean here.

Even though they'd worn variations of the famous shoulder pads for what can only be described as BARE TIME, this new twist with gnarly helmets added to the mix took their look to all new heights. They just don't build them like they used to...

I guess Sunny didn't look too bad either...


9. Shawn Michaels - WrestleMania XII


WWE


The boyhood dream has come true... FOR GOK WAN as Shawn Michaels turned more than a few heads at 'Mania 12 with this wholesome look.

Those boots. I know they look like motorcycling boots but I don't know what it is. I think they're the best boots I've seen this side of Eli Drake.

'Mania 12 wasn't a bad night for the Heartbreak Kid, with arguably the best WrestleMania entrance of all time, followed up by arguably the best WrestleMania match of all time - where he won the WWF Championship, btw - all while wearing what some consider to be the best 'Mania attire of all time.

I don't know what it is about white and gold trim. Swansea City consistently had the best football kits when they used this colour scheme and they obviously got their inspiration from Michaels' attire at WrestleMania XII.

8. Triple H - WrestleMania XXX


WWE


I've got to be honest, I laugh at Triple H at most WrestleManias - his entrances are just too much for me.

However, while 'Mania 32 hit the right spot for me - thank you Stephanie McMahon and your wonderful tribute to Cher - 'Mania 30's effort is just bloody fantastic. The bloke calls himself the King Of Kings and just look at him there. He's a God among men without looking like an 8-year-old with access to a begrudgingly willing fashion designer. Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss and Charlotte only add to what is already a very powerful image.

This kind of look really does fit the part with Triple H portraying the bossman heel on the Grandest Stage Of Them All - more of his GSOTA looks should be of this flavour. ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THEM should replicate the scenes we saw in Santa Clara where The Game turned up in his Halloween costume... the damn child!

7. Sasha Banks - WrestleMania 32


WWE


I love attires with meaning and this one has that, and then some.

As we all know by know, Sasha Banks loves paying tribute to her biological father, WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero. Tributes don't come with much higher standing than this one, with her gear made to replicate the liar, the cheater, and the stealer's iconic look.

Snoop Dogg really doesn't do anything for me, so once the confetti and senseless rhymes had cleared and everyone inside AT&T Stadium realised what Sasha was doing, there were roughly 100,000 lumps in 100,000 throats. Come one, admit it, you got emotional too.

I guess it's just a shame Sasha's Frogsplashes don't quite live up to the awesomeness of this gear - a fact that Lex Luger is counting his blessings for because if she could hit one, Sasha Banks, in terms of her fitting tributes to one of the GOATs, would be the Total Package.

I'll get my coat because reading that back made me vomit. Nice gear, anyway, Boss...


6. Rey Mysterio - Multiple WrestleManias


WWE


You know what I said earlier about The Road Warriors/Legion of Doom/LOD 2000 looking consistently great throughout their career? Well, you can take that and apply it to Rey Mysterio, who still looks as great today as he did when he started wrestling way back in 1908.

Rey's relationship with WrestleMania is like our relationship with Haloween. Rey uses the GSOTA to dress up like his favourite characters from the silver screen without the threat of anyone calling him a nerd because this is WrestleMania and 'just enjoy life for goodness sake!' Sorry, I got a bit carried away there.

To pick the best Rey Mysterio WrestleMania attire would just be unfair to the rest of them so I've narrowed them down to my top three in the image above, with the Aztec-style headdress and warrior inspired look just nicking it. Maybe. I don't know. It's too hard to pick. Help me. Mam?

5. The Undertaker - WrestleMania XXVIII


WWE


Now I don't know if you've noticed at any point over the past 28 years but The Undertaker is a big scary bastard. Imagine then, if you will (even though you don't need to because I've included a picture) if that big scary bastard had big scary spikes on his overcoat. Aye, this is what is known in the trade as BAD ASS, I've been led to believe...

Just before the match that supposedly ended an era - even though I'm not too sure what era since two of the three men involved have competed at 'Manias since - The Deadman turned up looking even more menacing that he had done over the course of his storied career. I know you're probably thinking of an attire where he looked even more terrifying than this but this is my article and my opinions, OK?! Seriously though, this is subjective and there's something about the hood and the spikes and the mohawk that took me back to being legitimately scared of this man in my youth. He looked like an absolute nutter at WrestleMania XXVIII, and more power to him.

Massive spikes do something for Taker - and for me, quite clearly.

4. Ric Flair - WrestleMania XXIV


WWE


This might have something to do with Charlotte's WrestleMania 32 attire being made from parts of this coat - because I'm a really sentimental man - but just look at Ric there, he looks like a peacock that has achieved more than all of the other peacocks and knows he's the greatest peacock to ever live.

Peacocks are good looking animals according to Sir David Attenborough, so Ric looking like the GOAT in terms of those feather fetishists must mean this attire is one of the best we've ever seen on the GSOTA.

I like the twist on the traditional Flair robe design, while the fact it's blue means more than you probably give it credit for. For a long old while, an easter egg of Flair's was that whenever he wore red in a match, you knew he was going to lose. Therefore, even though a defeat to Shawn Michaels at 'Mania 24 was even more certain than death, taxes, and Michael Cole shouting 'THE BIG DOG' whenever Roman Reigns appears at the top of a WWE ramp, the fact he wore blue left the tiniest amount of doubt in the minds of those who knew the significance of the colour of his gear.

What a classy peacock.


3. Rick Rude - WrestleMania V


WWE


The rendition of The Ultimate Warrior on the back of these tights is a joy to behold. The Intercontinental Championship on the front isn't too bad either...

Rick Rude's gear is my favourite of all time. I'm not too sure if he invented putting the face of his opponent on ring gear but he certainly made it famous - with this mind game being used to his advantage on the GSOTA in his match with The Ultimate Warrior for the Intercontinental Championship.

It's the detail of the design that really gets me with Rude's gear. Again, I'm not too sure what process goes into making these tights, but they never failed to disappoint. It's something he used throughout his career, but few have matched this cunning at WrestleMania, so of course it's got to go close to the top of my list.

All credit to the Velveteen Dream for keeping Rude's look alive these days. It's a shame more Superstars don't utilise it.

2. 'Macho Man' Randy Savage - WrestleMania III


WWE


It's THE Macho Man gear. It's the gear he wore in THAT match against Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat. It's the gear CM Punk - among others - so famously paid tribute to.

I'm not too sure what to say about this gear as it speaks for itself. It's one of the truly iconic ensembles ever seen in a WWE ring, despite being a really simple look compared to everything else on this list.

So yeah... I'm not too sure what to say now. If you see nothing more than a tribute to Mr Blobby here, please get out of my face. If you don't and see this GOAT attire for what it really is, let's grab a beer sometime.

1. Shawn Michaels - WrestleMania XXV


WWE


The light in the face of darkness... outside of Mordecai, why has nobody ever thought of dressing all in white when going up against the heavily black-clad Undertaker? I guess this is why Shawn Michaels is Mr WrestleMania, and all of those other nicknames he likes of be referred to on occasion.

Just look at him there, floating down from heaven like a roll of that toilet paper small labradors play with on the television, with all of the grace and presence of a stork carrying a newborn child to its forever home.

I'm rambling now. Shawn Michaels just looked really good, OK?! And the tights he had on underneath his pristine white coat were very nice too, harking back to 'Mania 12 with the 'can't do wrong' white with gold trim look bringing home the bacon once again.
