This week, we’re asking this: ODB and Eric Young’s recent nuptials have us wondering: what is your favorite wrestling wedding? We’ve read your responses on our social media pages and picked some of the best submissions to highlight here on the website. As always, you can join the debate by leaving your comments!
Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Erin giving us her personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Erin: I think, by default, all wrestling weddings are required to be hot messes in some shape or form (save maybe Liz/Macho Man). There’s been weddings performed in underwear, weddings in drive-thru chapels, heart attacks, etc. But I think the wedding that most encapsulates that “soap opera on crack” essence of a wrestling wedding is the one between Lita and Kane. It’s got the “married against her will” aspect, a pregnant bride, an evil “maid of honor” in the form of Trish Stratus and, to top it off, two fights that end with the groom carrying away the unwilling bride. It was like a Disney movie if you twisted it, made it trashy and let the villain win. That’s the recipe for a memorable wrestling wedding.
|Bobby Wells | Miss Elizabeth and Macho Man! Two icons. They are no doubt the best wrestling couple to ever happen. RIP to both of them. They’re in heaven now smiling and together again.|
|Jack White | WHAT YOU GONNA SAY? It has to be Goldust and Aksana‘s wedding. I had elements of the golden, hints of Dashing, a smidgen of shovel-beating and a sick heel turn at the end!|
|@Jaffney_Quinn | I think that Stephanie McMahon and HHH’s weddings will forever be my favorite. Great start/ending to a great era.
|Josue Guzman | The most entertaining wedding, in my eyes, was the wedding of Al Wilson and Dawn Marie. This wedding was the climax in the long and memorable feud between Dawn Marie and Torrie Wilson; a feud that was a career highlight for both women.
I remember tuning in to Smackdown every week to watch this soap opera storyline unfold. What started out as seduction soon evolved into forbidden love that caused a father and daughter to break apart. In a desperate attempt to save her father from Dawn’s clutches, Torrie agrees to spend one night with Dawn, only to discover that the wedding was still going to take place. When the night of the wedding arrives, Dawn decides to make this wedding no ordinary but a semi-nude wedding! With no objections from anyone, Al and Dawn became man and wife and went off to their honeymoon.
Sadly this honeymoon would be the last time these two spent together as Al passed away. In his honor, Al’s widow had a public viewing, that his daughter Torrie attended. Harsh words are exchanged and soon these words would turn in to blows. Step-Mother and Step-Mother would then meet in the ring at Royal Rumble.
|Laura Alberts | Kane and Lita‘s by far. In an almost unpredictable way, I thought Lita was going to be “saved” by her former beau, Matt Hardy, from the ruthless Kane’s grasp, but to no avail, Kane ultimately threw Hardy off the stage, and thus turned Lita’s world upside down. And plus, we all got to see Lita’s rival, Trish Stratus, in a white lingerie piece, delivering one hell of a heel promo on the fiery redhead. It’s definitely one of my favorite “weddings” of all time, bar none!|
|Wil Mcerlean | Colonel Robert Parker and Sister (Sensational) Sherri, mainly because Sherri and Madusa got into it.|
And now we turn it over to you…
