Among wrestling fans, the Nassau Coliseum may be considered “The House that Piper Built.”
From seconding Bob Orton in the main event of the first “Saturday Night’s Main Event” NBC primetime special in 1985, to headlining the New York portion of WrestleMania 2 in a boxing match against Mr. T in 1986, to winning a 1990 Bunkhouse Battle Royal with the help of a chain saw, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has been front and center in some of the most epic wrestling cards the Uniondale arena has ever seen.

The most important action of Tuesday’s WrestleMania 30 news conference at Hard Rock Café in Times Square didn’t take place on the podium.
To the stage’s left, behind the press chairs, Josh Mathews spoke to the Bella Twins live on the WWE Network before the event began. Scribes turned their backs to the stage and took pictures of that broadcast, part of the biggest gamble Vince McMahon has taken since mortgaging everything he had to put WrestleMania I at Madison Square Garden on closed-circuit TV.
Former ECW Champion and WWE Superstar Justin Credible has published a new column at PWMania.com. Credible discusses his favorite WWE WrestleMania moments.
Here are some highlights from his article:
“WrestleMania 17. This was my favorite WrestleMania for many reasons. The main event was a dream match. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. The Rock. These guys were the two biggest wrestlers of the “Attitude Era”. The build for this match was also masterful. Then on the other side of the spectrum It was my first appearance at WrestleMania. I had been to WrestleMania’s before during my Aldo days, but never performed. The show was held at Reliant Stadium in front of 67,000 fans. Even though it was on the pre show I got to go out, and wrestle on the WrestleMania stage. When the X Factor music hit I went through the curtain, and I couldn’t believe the sea of people. As I’m walking down the huge ramp to the ring I couldn’t help but think I made my dreams come true. The match was ok. I never got that big Mania moment, but for that moment I made it full circle. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The rest of the card speaks for itself, but WrestleMania 17 was Justin Credible.”

TheRichest.com presents: “Top 10 Shortest WWE Championship Reigns in History” by Stefano Mocella
The WWE Championship has had a long history and many title holders. In its early days, many held it for months, even years. However, as wrestling evolved, title reigns became shorter and shorter. With the abundance of tv shows, pay-per-views and live events, there are many more opportunities these days for the title to change hands. Sometimes it borders on ridiculous, as in recent years we have seen several superstars win the title 10 times.
