It would be a disservice to wrestling history as a whole to not give one of the greatest events in WWE history and a turning point for WWE. In my opinion, Wrestlemania X-Seven was the event that ended the Attitude Era when Steve Austin turned heel and joined Vince McMahon officially ending the legendary feud between the two stars. Comparing this year's show to Wrestlemania 2000 it is like a tale of two events. Last year a lot of the filler matches felt like they didn't belong on Wrestlemania, but this year WWE even did work to build up the less important matches for the event to make the show feel more complete.
Top to bottom Wrestlemania X-Seven is one of the top five best Wrestlemania's in the history of WWE and provided some moments that we will never forget. Outside of Austin vs Rock my mind immediately goes to the Triple Threat TLC Match, because this is the show when Edge speared a hanging Jeff Hardy to mat from a ladder. Raven went crashing through a window while Kane and Big Show broke through a wall during the Hardcore title match. Undertaker choke slammed Triple H from an elevated position where they keep cameras and this was also the first of three meetings between these two at Wrestlemania.
Overall even though everything would change following this event it was an incredibly high note to go out on for WWE. After Wrestlemania we would see the formation of the Two Man Power Trip and then after Triple H got injured the launch of an Invasion and from there everything changed.
