WrestleMania X was the tenth annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by the World Wrestling Federation. It took place at Madison Square Garden in New York, New York on March 20, 1994.[2] The central focus of the pay-per-view was the WWF Championship, which was defended in two matches. Lex Luger challenged champion Yokozuna first but the storyline saw Luger disqualified for pushing the referee.[4] Bret Hart faced Yokozuna later in the evening and won the championship by pinning Yokozuna.[2] This led to a lengthy worked feud between Bret and his brother Owen,[5] who defeated Bret in the opening match of the pay-per-view.[2]

Several other major feuds were also highlighted at this event. Razor Ramon defeated Shawn Michaels in a Ladder match to resolve an angle in which the two had argued over the rightful holder of the Intercontinental Championship.[4] Bam Bam Bigelow gained revenge against Doink the Clown, with whom he had been feuding, by teaming with Luna Vachon to defeat Doink and his partner Dink.[2] Randy Savage also settled his feud with Crush by defeating him in a Falls Count Anywhere match.[2]
