This is it.  The biggest show of the year, Wrestlemania.  Rivalries are taken to the next level.  Feuds come to a climax.  Wrestlers are elevated.

This year the big event hits the quarter century mark and at least on paper, it has a chance to be one of the best Wrestlemanias ever.

Chris Jericho vs. Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat and Jimmy Snuka (with Ric Flair) – Handicap elimination match

Jericho has been as good or better than he’s ever been with this clean cut anti-Y2J character.  What started as a feud with Mickey Rourke ended up as a feud with Ric Flair, who was retired after losing a match at last year’s Wrestlemania.  Since Flair is retired, three legends will fight for him: Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat and Jimmy Snuka.  I think it’s about time that Jericho moved back up to the main event, and I don’t expect this match to finish without at least a little bit of of Ric Flair in the ring, and while Flair might get the better of Jericho, the match will end with the three Legends defeated.  Jericho eliminates them all.
