Greatest Legend of Wrestlemania?

So who exactly is the greatest WWE wrestler in Wrestlemania history? is holding a "Vote for the Greatest Legend of Wrestlemania" contest presented by Best Buy which began 1/26/09 to determine the top superstar. Each week for six straight weeks, fans can vote at to choose the top legend of 5 WWE wrestlers. In the final week, the top 5 vote-getting superstars from the previous 5 weeks will make up the final field of 5 WWE Legends. Fans will choose the Greatest Legend from that Final 5, and that wrestler will be announced at the 2009 WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony. Week 1 is already in the history books, with one of wrestling's greatest stars receiving the most votes, but just barely winning over another legend.

Week one's breakdown went as follows:

Week One Results:
* Hulk Hogan: 47%
* The Rock: 44%
* Mankind: 5%
* Ted DiBiase: 3%
* Big Show: 1%

In quite a battle, you can see Hulk Hogan barely edged out The Rock. You could easily argue that Mankind being in the same group may have taken away some of the Rock's votes. (More at about the results). Nonetheless, Hulkamania prevailed and is on to Week two of the voting here. Week two's choices include Triple H, Kurt Angle, Roddy Piper, Andre the Giant and Kane.

The top vote getter after all the voting closes will be named the Greatest Legend of WrestleMania at WWE’s Hall of Fame ceremony on April 4. The new field of 5 wrestlers is announced each Monday at 6PM EST. The contest is in conjunction with not only Wrestlemania 25 and the Hall of Fame ceremony but also the upcoming video game release, WWE Legends of WrestleMania, available March 24th, 2009.
