Every day we use slang terms in our vocabulary to describe different occurrences within the world of wrestling. "Heel," "face," "puny marc," (Hi, Brodus!) the list goes on and on!

So I thought it would be fun to pick out one term and have you guys comment on the first thing that comes to mind.

Today's word is: "Wrestlemania" - A professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event, produced annually in mid-late March or early April. WWE first produced the event in 1985 to be its premier annual event. WWE regards it as a flagship event due to it being the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history and is considered to be the WWE's Super Bowl equivalent.


For me, it's all about Wrestlemania VI: Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior. I was just getting into pro wrestling around this time, and this was one of the matches that made me a fully invested fan. As a kid, I had no idea about Hogan and Warrior's backstage politics, which made things all the better. All I knew was Hogan vs. Warrior was the coolest thing ever! Two of the biggest stars going head-to-head, with the surprise (at least to me) victor being the Warrior.


Okay, Cagesiders, now it's your turn. What's the first thing that comes to mind for you?
