It’s time again for WWE’s “WrestleMania,” the 31st installment of one of wrestling’s biggest nights. But do you remember “WrestleMania 1”?
Check out the above video from NBC News, which features footage of the first “WrestleMania.” The headlining event featured Mr. T. and Hulk Hogan taking on Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff, with Muhammad Ali as the guest referee and Liberace (yes, this Liberace) as the guest timekeeper.
“It allows the viewer to give in to their emotions,” says Liberace. “Like with my mother, for instance. My mother was a very gentile lady, but when she watched wrestling, she let off some steam.”
Sunday (March 29) is when it all goes down, featuring a singles match of The Undertake vs. Bray Wyatt, a tag team match of The Bella Twins vs. AJ Lee and Paige and the heavyweight title match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. The action kicks off at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, all the pay-per-view information is here.
