This week, Bleacher Report will reveal the matches included in the mode. There will be 46 different matches that will be playable in "30 Years of WrestleMania" that will span five specific eras in the history of the WWE. The first two eras revealed were "Hulkamania Runs Wild" and "The New Generation." On Wednesday, the next era that was announced was the forever loved "Attitude Era."

While "The New Generation" started a change for the WWE, the "Attitude Era" completely changed the company and the wrestling (or sports entertainment) industry forever. Gone were the comic book like characters (except The Undertaker to a point) and in were human characters that had real issues that viewers could relate to. It was just man-to-man problems that were settled in the ring with no stupid effects or ridiculous stunts. This change led to some of the biggest ratings and record revenues for the WWE and is still considered the best time in wrestling history. In WWE 2K14, there were only four matches for this era and some of the selections, especially for WrestleMania 14, is a little odd but here are the four matches that represented the "Attitude Era."

WrestleMania 14: Undertaker vs. Kane, Fleet Center, Boston

WrestleMania 15: The Rock vs. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, First Union Center, Philadelphia

WrestleMania 16: Triple H vs. The Rock vs. Mick Foley (Fatal Four Way Elimination Match), Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim

WrestleMania 17: The Rock vs. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Astrodome, Houston, TX

WWE 2K14 is set for an October 29 release date in North America with a November 1 European release. It will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Check out the other matches that will be in the mode below.
