Top 5 Moments of the Vince McMahon WWE era

The Vince McMahon era in WWE has come to an end as it comes to WWE being an independent organization and now that it has been purchased by Endeavor and has been merged with UFC to form a new company with a $21.4 Billion. Therefore It would be wise to look at some of the top moments of the Vince McMahon era of WWE. Vince McMahon is now not the owner of WWE and that is very weird.

There are so many great moments in the 40 year journey of Vince McMahon and WWE that it will be very difficult to narrow it down to 5 but let’s look at the Top 5 Moments in the Vince McMahon WWE era

1) The Austin Era has begun

The biggest moment and the most success that Vince McMahon had during his time as WWE boss was the era of Stone Cold Steve Austin and that is not a disputable fact. Vince McMahon vs Austin is still one of the greatest feuds in the history of WWE and it took WWE to the next level during the attitude Era and Stone Cold Steve Austin was the face that all the fans could connect to the most and Vince McMahon as the heel gave everything he could to make Austin the biggest star in the world. Millions of people tuned In to watch the shows and Austin became the face of the common person.

2) The Attitude Era

In the previous section Stone Cold Steve Austin was talked about but it would not be fair if the entire Attitude Era was the number 2 best moment of Vince McMahon because not only was WWE going up against WCW at the time every Monday but it had to be seen as the biggest in the world. The Attitude Era saw big stars such The Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Edge, Eddie Guerrero, The Undertaker and so many others and they went on to become the biggest stars in WWE history and this has been one of the biggest success stories of Vince McMahon. And during this time Vince McMahon also bought WCW and ended the wars. This was a very special moment in the professional wrestling world

3) Hulk Hogan became the first big star In WWE history

One of the biggest and most successful moments in WWE history was the breakout stardom of Hulk Hogan who became the biggest star in the 1980s and the star of the first 10 WrestleMania events . Hulk Hogan was the WWE champion for more than 1400 days and he main evented the first 8 out of the 10 WrestleMania events and he put WWE on the map. He main evented WrestleMania 3 against Andre The Giant then against Randy Savage and Yokozuna. Without Hulk Hogan there would not been such a successful WWE and Vince McMahon deserves all the credit.

4) Creation of WrestleMania

Perhaps the most important moment in the 40 year career of Vince McMahon was the launch of WrestleMania 38 years ago in 1985. Before then WWE did not have any big time events to put on throughout the year and Vince McMahon risked everything to get WrestleMania 1 and the risk paid off and 38 WrestleMania events later it is one of the biggest sporting events of the year ok a regular basis. WrestleMania 39 was the biggest and most successful WrestleMania of all time and next year will be WrestleMania 40 and WWE will want to make the event the biggest of all time. Vince McMahon deserves all the credit for WrestleMania and getting professional wrestling to such a high.

5) Ruthless Aggression Era and the Women’s Evolution

The fifth and last moment on this list is the Ruthless Aggression Era that started right after the Attitude Era from the early 2000s and it saw the rise of some of the biggest new stars that have become legends now and it saw the likes of John Cena, Randy Orton, Batista, Randy Orton who became the 4 faces of the Ruthless Aggression Era and now they have all become legends and 2 of them are in Hollywood. And then there is the women’s evolution which was the most important thing that could happen to the women in WWE. It all started in 2015 and it started the women’s Evolution and the women were at par with the men for the first time. They started having Hell in Cell Matches, Money in the bank matches and then they had great WrestleMania Matches and then the women got their Royal Rumble Match and finally the main event of WrestleMania 2 times till now.
