No matter how big something becomes, it always starts small. Well, unless your name is Vince McMahon… Join the Wrestling Unwrapped crew as we watch Vince put everything on the line for one shot at the big time with Wrestlemania 1. Join us as we delve into the magic, mystique, and majesty that would become the “show of shows” as we do our WWF Wrestlemania 1 Review.
A massive main event greets us for the first ever extravaganza as World Wrestling Federation Champion Hulk Hogan teams with Mr. T to take on Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff with special guests galore. Other titles are on the line as Greg Valentine defends the Intercontinental Title, the US Express defend the Tag Titles, and Leilani Kai defends the Ladies Title as well.
As always, Harry, Patrick, and Sean take on their cash and trash, best and worst, and give their final rating for this show. All of this and more as WU covers where it all started, with Wrestlemania 1

Patrick Ketza: The Host of Wrestling Unwrapped is never one to mince words, Patrick has spent his whole life growing up in one of the best wrestling cities in the world, Chicago. A fan of all types, Patrick not only follows the big companies, but smaller indie companies as well.
Harry Broadhurst: The Co-host of Wrestling Unwrapped is a thirty year old from Ohio, but a twenty five year long fan of professional wrestling. He started watching with his uncle and his grandpa at the age of five. He is also the play by play voice of Real Action Pro Wrestling based out of Campbell, Ohio.
Sean Garmer: The producer on Wrestling Unwrapped studied Journalism at the University of North Texas. Sean loves pro-wrestling so much that he even trained to be a wrestler at the age of 17. Though he eventually had to quit wrestling to go to college, he still returned to do play-by-play commentary, help write storylines, and most of all, to watch matches. Sean started his love of pro-wrestling at the age of five after watching a Hulk Hogan match. Due to his family hating sports-entertainment, there were many years he missed. However, he returned full-time to being a fan in the late 1990’s. Since then, Sean has gone on to write for various wrestling websites in a number of capacities, but he discovered his true passion, Podcasting, four years ago when he and Gary started the Wrestling 2 the MAX Podcast.
