273.The Godwinns (Henry O. & Phineas I. Godwinn) (w/ Hillbilly Jim) vs. The Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher) vs. Dough Furnas & Phil LaFon vs. The New Blackjacks (Windham & Bradshaw)

Timeline:
WrestleMania 13
March 23, 1997
Rosemont Horizon
Rosemont, IL

A four way elimination matchup to determine a Tag Team Title shot the next night on Raw does not exactly scream WrestleMania. Then again, this was the height of WCW’s popularity that a Mania had to compete with, so promoting Raw was becoming increasingly important. Calling this a four team match is somewhat generous, as The New Blackjacks and Furnas & LaFon both get disqualified fairly early. It isn’t long before a silly ending with all four remaining men in the ring leads to Henry beating down Thrasher and not noticing Mosh doing the Stage Dive to Phineas for the win. A pretty disjointed opener to a disjointed WrestleMania.
