“A Superstar can be great 364 days out of the year, but if they don’t deliver at WrestleMania, they won’t mean much in the grand scheme of sports-entertainment lore.
The competitors who have excelled on The Grandest Stage of Them All are a select fraternity. The best of them didn’t have a good match or two — they anchored WWE’s biggest event of the year on multiple occasions. They made history on a regular basis, stole the show like it was theirs for the taking. They walked into stadiums as men and left as icons.
WrestleMania is known as The Showcase of the Immortals. The 10 Superstars on this list are the reason why.”

“In the pantheon of WWE pay-per-views, only one event — The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania — outstrips SummerSlam in terms of prestige. Since SummerSlam first appeared on the WWE pay-per-view calendar in 1988, comparisons between it and big brother WrestleMania have only been natural. As such, shouldn’t there be a “Mr. SummerSlam” by now?
Shawn Michaels has the moniker “Mr. WrestleMania” all locked up, of course, but who’s HBK’s equivalent on the biggest stage of the summer? Armed with a loose set of criteria — match quality, milestones and endurance — WWE.com editors have made their case for why certain Superstars should be called Mr. SummerSlam. Read the arguments and then decide for yourself by voting in our Mr. SummerSlam poll.”
