10 WWE WrestleMania Matches That Sadly Get Overlooked

You NEED to check out these underrated classics!

9. Junkyard Dog & Tito Santana Vs. The Funk Brothers (WrestleMania 2)

Like WrestleMania 27, the second incarnation of 'Mania is generally placed on the lower end of the rankings. 

Outside of the Steel Cage finale, The British Bulldogs winning the Tag Team belts, and Andre the Giant's Battle Royal win, there isn't all that much else (okay, the rather-needless three time zone set-up) that stands out historically. And that's a shame, because the match that went on before Hulk Hogan and King Kong Bundy's closer may have been match of the night, even edging out The Bulldogs vs. The Dream Team.

There's a lot to love here: JYD is still absolutely fantastic, while Santana is still an underappreciated wrestling god, and the two were ideal for the classic tag formula. 

But even their shared greatness pales to 41-year-old Terry Funk bumping with endless vigour, taking hard falls onto concrete and even tables, back when the very idea of ECW was a mere glint in some milkman's eye. 

This match kicks ass in any era, and in 1986, it's controlled chaos done extremely well.
