So, I thought as I'm pretty good with remembering past events in wrestling along with a lot of the dates they occurred that this could be a cool thing to update on possibly a daily basis if people contribute.
Today is the 25th of March, so I'll make a start with a couple of events that happened on this day in history.
March 25th 2002 - The first WWE Draft took place on Raw and thus the brand split was born.
March 25th 2004 - A week after abandoning Faarooq, The former Bradshaw became known as John Bradshaw Layfield on SmackDown. On the same show, Kurt Angle became the general manager of SmackDown.
Former WWE referee Tim White was born on this day and is 59 years old today.
It was 20 years ago today when the episode of WCW World Wide aired on TV, that saw the Hollywood Blondes finally beat Ricky Steamboat & Shane Douglas for the WCW/NWA Unified World Tag Team Titles, in what was a well over 20 minute match on free TV!!
I remember this match happening, I was a huge fan of both teams, and it was finally cool to see the Blondes finally win the tag belts. And those 2 teams could have amazing matches constantly!!

March 29th 1998: Wrestlemania 14. 2010: The day after Wrestlemania 26 on Raw, where Shawn Michaels gave his goodbye speech. 2004: Here's the results for that episode of Raw, the most notable occurence being Shelton Benjamin's first win over HHH.
March 29 1987 wrestlemania III bigger badder better!!!
The Wrestlemania that changed the business. Hogan/Andre attracted the masses, proved Hulkamania was the biggest draw in the sport, and provided highlight reel moments that will never be forgotten. Steamboat/Savage had the wrestling classic that showed how good the actual wrestling can be. Roddy Piper ended his really big, main event run here with a great match. Alice Cooper brought even more media with him in his involvement with Jake Roberts
WrestleMania's 1 and 2 were fine, but 3 I think showed just how BIG and good the business could get, and eventually did get. To me, this was the defining WWF event, not WrestleMania 1.
April 2 1989 - Hulk Hogan defeated "Macho Man" Randy Savage for his second WWF Championship. Also Jim Crockett Promotions ran Clash of the Champions VI free with NWA Champion Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat defeating Ric Flair in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match to retain the title.
