The 13 Greatest Things About WWE’s New Generation Era

With each passing mention of WWE’s ‘New Era’, which is said without shame several times per episode every Monday and Thursday night, it harkens back to a previous time WWE tried to aggressively promote a New Era. Back in 1992, the WWE roster went through a massive undertaking and ridded itself of many of the stars of the 80s for various reasons. Whether they were stars who just couldn’t cut the mustard anymore, didn’t fit Vince’s vision, or were synthetically enhanced; there were gaping holes and a bleak outlook for the future of the promotion.

 

While the likes of Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, and Ric Flair were no longer around, WWE developed a brand new nucleus built around Bret Hart, The Undertaker, and Shawn Michaels who each put away stalwarts of the previous era at WrestleMania VIII, when Roddy Piper, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, and Tito Santana bowed in defeat to the aforementioned stars. Bret Hart would later win the WWE Championship in October ’92 from Ric Flair, but the era didn’t officially change over until the next summer which we’ll be looking at shortly.

Matches such as Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant, Ric Flair vs. Dusty Rhodes, and Stone Cold vs. Vince McMahon proved that a hero and villain competing for reasons based on moral disagreements, will always be a compelling story for an audience simply because spectators at large love to see malevolent people get what’s coming to them.

10 Wrestlemania Main Events ( That Happened Before Wrestlemania)

WrestleMania is the biggest event in all of professional wrestling. It’s often referred to as “The Showcase of Immortals,” or “The Granddaddy of Them All,” and for good reason. Era’s originate and close here, and the greatest superstars define themselves by their legacy on this stage. Typically we see the biggest stars in the sport, engaging in battles over championships, personal issues or respect.

Furthermore, most of these meetings are marketed as dream matches we’ve never seen before. Whether they were always truthful about that or not wasn’t always important to WWE. In the 1980’s it was commonplace for WWE to rewrite short-term history, and push the agenda exactly as they saw fit. With the lack of technology, things moved slower back then. Understandably, as time went on, rematches were unavoidable and sometimes encouraged.

Nevertheless, when looking over the main events that have happened over the last 30 years, WWE did an admirable job giving us fresh matchups that have never happened on a major stage. However, the following 10 matchups, not only took place before WrestleMania, but also sometimes weren’t acknowledged by WWE. These contests act as great companions to the more remembered ones.
