Im going with Chris Benoit winning the world title closing the landmark wrestlemania XX and then being a participant and not winning the MItB ladder match at Wrestlemania 21.


Slaughter 7-8 is a good answer too. Also mentioned above, I agree with was Miz from 27-28

The Miz dropped pretty far from the main event at the next Mania.

How about Chris Jericho going from wrestling CM Punk for the title, to losing to Fandango the next year?

I wouldn't call it a huge drop-off in competition, but Eddie Guerrero did go from being a headliner at Wrestlemania XX to losing to Rey Mysterio in the show opener at 21.

I would have to go with Sgt. Slaughter on this one.

There have been many good examples of drop-offs mentioned in this thread. But the thing is the majority of them were either in show-stealing caliber matches, had a good believable storyline or both.

The 8-man tag team match at WrestleMania 8 didn't have a storyline attached to it nor was it a show-stealing caliber match. It seemed that it was just thrown in there as filler. So that's why I'm going with the Sarge.

Stone Cold Steve Austin - WrestleMania X-Seven/WrestleMania 18

Austin went from wrestling The Rock in the main event of the best ever WrestleMania event in Houston, to taking on Scott Hall and Kevin Nash a year later. And whilst Hall and Nash might have created a nice little niche for themselves in wrestling, they are no Dwayne Johnson and they are no Stone Cole Steve Austin. Moreover, Austin came around the middle of the card at WrestleMania 18 and it was almost as if he had been totally underestimated. This was the same guy that, the year before, made the biggest heel turn in the history of the company. This is the same guy that everyone talks about as being amongst the very best to lace some boots. And he's 10 minutes and a throw away match with a washed up Hall and Nash? Bullshit!
That's Austin's fault.

He originally was offered the match against "Hollywood" Hogan at WMX8, and turned it down, because he has issues with Hogan.

So, maybe the Rock was set to fight Scott Hall, but when Austin-Hogan didn't happen, the matches were switched around and the Rock got put in the match instead, and Austin got Hall.

Bam Bam Bigelow v Lawrence Taylor was last on the card at WM11 (in the main event spot. WTF?) to neither even competing at Wrestlemania 12.

Shawn Michaels competing and winning the title at Wrestlemania 12, and then not even having a match at Wrestlemania 13. He then main-evented Wrestlemania 14, and then missed the next 4 Manias.

Also on HBK, he wrestled Taker at WM26 (in the main event spot) and has never wrestled since.

So, three times at Mania, HBK has had the last match of the night one year, and then not even had a match the next year.

Bret Hart going from main eventing 9 & 10 to facing an ageing Bob Backlund in a pretty poor and annoying 'I quit' match at 11

Macho Man from winning the title at 8 in what should have been the main event (nice work Hogan) to commentating at 9.

Brock Lesnar from main eventing 31 to a pretty poor mid card match with Ambrose last year- probably his own fault but still...

Lex Luger - Wrestlemania X/Wrestlemania XI

Luger went from being the new top face, being set up as the next Hulk Hogan and the next WWF Champion, main eventing Wrestlemania X with Yokozuna for the WWF Title to opening Wrestlemania XI against Jacob and Eli Blu in a random meaningless filler match.
