*** On top of this is that this match caused a FaceHeelDoubleTurn - Hart [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown tried to brutalize Austin]] after he'd passed out (getting stopped by Wrestling/KenShamrock), gaining a huge amount of heat from the crowd, while Austin earned the audience's adoration by virtue of [[TheDeterminator refusing to submit]].

** ''[=WrestleMania=] 17'' also featured an outstanding opening between Wrestling/ChrisJericho and Wrestling/WilliamRegal, a fun hardcore match between {{Wrestling/Kane}}, Wrestling/TheBigShow, and {{Wrestling/Raven}}, another outstanding technical match between Wrestling/KurtAngle and Wrestling/ChrisBenoit, a solid match between Wrestling/EddieGuerrero and Wrestling/{{Test}}, a solid 6-man tag team match that the crowd was hot involving the APA ([[Wrestling/RonSimmons Faarooq]] and [[Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield Bradshaw]] and Wrestling/{{Tazz}} against Right to Censor (the latters last PPV match as a stable), and a highly entertaining battle royal with a slew of retired greats, not to mention the street fight between Vince and Shane with Wrestling/MickFoley reffing. Nearly every match delivered, and then some.
* But specifically, Linda [=McMahon=] standing from her wheelchair (she was playing as she was catatonic after a nervous breakdown) and [[GroinAttack kicked Vince in his grapefruits]].
* Or one offhand comment by Wrestling/JimRoss, "The Undertaker has never lost at Wrestlemania''. And with this, The Streak, then at 8 and eventually 9-0 is now officially born[[note]]This had actually been mentioned by Vince [=McMahon=] at Wrestlemania 11 as well, though nobody made a big deal of it then.[[/note]].

* The final match of the night saw Wrestling/BrockLesnar defeat Wrestling/KurtAngle (with a broken neck) to win the WWE Championship. One of the final spots in the match saw Lesnar climb up to the top rope and attempt a ''Shooting Star Press'' (a move that the Hulk-like Lesnar hadn't done since his days in OVW); he under-rotated and ended up concussing himself (and very nearly breaking his neck), but he won the match anyway. Afterwards, he shook hands with Angle and hugged him in the ring to cap off Angle's face turn.

* The WWE Championship match. A month prior at Wrestling/NoWayOut, Wrestling/EddieGuerrero won the WWE Championship against Brock Lesnar and would face Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania with Kurt often lambasting Eddie in the weeks prior for his former drug and alcohol addictions and felt he didn't deserve to be champ. The match itself was spectacular as the two performers really utilized their mat skills for a truly technical match. Towards the end, Eddie untied one of his boots and then faked a limp. Angle, catching the limp, immediately went for his signature ankle lock. When he grabbed Eddie's boot, it came flying off and Eddie took advantage of the surprise by executing a roll-up on Kurt that won the match.

* Kudos to Creator/MariaMenounos for competing with ''broken ribs'' and doing most of the work in her match, taking a lot of hits and bumps.

** Speaking of Foley, he and his daughter cheered his win. So did Wrestling/JimRoss, Wrestling/MattHardy, Justin Roberts, Renee Young, Wrestling/KofiKingston, Wrestling/BretHart, Wrestling/JoeyStyles, not to mention millions and millions of wrestling fans.

* Also on the pre-show is the second Wrestling/AndreTheGiant memorial battle royal. Highlights include Wrestling/{{Cesaro}} tossing Kane over the top (like last year) and almost tossing BigShow out again; [[Wrestling/DamienSandow Damien Mizdow]] [[TheDogBitesBack eliminating]] Wrestling/TheMiz, and Big Show winning.

* The Triple H vs. Sting match is a dream match 14 years in the making. After both made awesome entrances, both competitors not only hitting each other with everything, but even their respective factions: Triple H's D-Generation X, as well as Shawn Michaels, and the New World Order backing up Sting. After Triple H won, it looked like it was gonna be one big brawl, but the two end the long rivalry between WWE and WCW on a handshake.

** Must be mentioned that all three looked good here. Brock wasn't pinned, Roman wasn't ruined (many thought it was too soon for him) and still looked strong, and Rollins is the champ. So not only was Seth the first to cash in at WrestleMania, and the first to cash in DURING a match, but it was done while making everyone look good. If anything, Seth looked like a coward, but it fits his slimy mastermind role.

* The Ladder Match for the Intercontinental title. Aside from numerous intense spots (including a bump from Wrestling/KevinSteen that looked like he was half-dead in the rungs of a fallen ladder), the ending came out of absolutely nowhere. Wrestling/TheMiz is posted to pull down the belt, only to choose to sit atop the ladder to do so. Up from behind comes '''''Wrestling/ZackRyder'''''[[note]]replacing an injured Neville[[/note]] and shoves Miz off the ladder and scoops up the championship for himself. Zack gets to celebrate a major championship victory after nearly ''four years of neglect from WWE brass'' and celebrate in the ring with his father.

** The lead up was awesome enough, with a tossed out of the ring Bayley, Charlotte and Sasha Banks all making it to the rope at the same time. They all look at each other, then across at Nia Jax... who simply tells them to BringIt. Nia even gets off some offense as she's triple teamed by three champions!

* {{Wrestling/Goldberg}} and Wrestling/BrockLesnar have their best match with each other yet. It lasted only five minutes, but those five minutes were ''brutal''. Goldberg hit Brock with some damn impressive spears (including one through the barricade), topped off by Brock ''jumping clear over'' the last one, with Brock ultimately putting Goldberg away with ten German suplexes and an [[FinishingMove F5]]. Oh, and did we mention that ''Brock kicked out of the JACKHAMMER?'' Only [[Wrestling/HulkHogan one man]] has EVER done that.[[note]]And that wasn't even supposed to happen; Kevin Nash was supposed to break up the pin attempt, but he missed his cue, forcing Hogan to lift his shoulder.[[/note]]

* The event kicked off in a big way by having Wrestling/AJStyles and Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon open the show, and they absolutely tore up the ring. In particular, their back-to-back attempts at Coast-to-Coasts as well as Shane busting out a ''shooting star press'' have to be mentioned, as was the way Shane reversed the first Phenomenal Forearm attempt ''into a DDT.''

* After seven long months of waiting, calling out, and injury, Wrestling/SethRollins ''finally'' gets his revenge against Wrestling/TripleH. Highlights of the match included a chain of [[FinishingMove pedigree]] attempts, Seth superkicking Triple H into Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, sending her through a table, and Seth ''finally'' nailing that last sweet pedigree and putting Triple H down for the three-count. Special mention should also be given for their entrances, with Triple H and Stephanie coming out on a three-wheel motorcycle to a police escort, and Seth coming out with a torch and ''virtually lighting the ramp on fire.''
