20 Years Ago Today WWF WrestleMania X-Seven Blew Roof Off The Houston Astrodome

2001 was a hot year for WWE, and it arguably spawned their greatest pay-per-view of all time in WrestleMania X-Seven. Today, marks 20 years since that pay-per-view blew our socks off... feeling old?

For an era much-loved and filled with memorable moments, The Attitude Era struggled to produce a WrestleMania that had that buzz and excitement that WrestleMania X-Seven created, frankly it was a spectacle and some believe the swan song for The Attitude Era.

The card was stacked from top to bottom, the event had everything fans could want from the biggest pay-per-view of the year. The wrestling was stellar, the crowd was insanely enthused and the card was filled with fun spots and memorable moments.

Nearly two decades later, this extraordinary event still stands the test of time!
