Winner: 62 Minutes - Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart - WrestleMania XII
Now this one is a bit more obvious, but nonetheless the distinction of longest match in WrestleMania history goes to the iron man contest between 1996 Royal Rumble Winner and the defending WWE Champion Bret Hart. The sixty minute time
limit proved to somehow not be enough time for the two to settle their score as the match was all knotted up at 0-0 when the timer hit. Hart thought that meant he was done for the night having successfully hung onto his gold but the decision was made to restart the match under sudden death rules. Michaels was able to nail Bret with a Sweet Chin Music to fulfill his childhood dream in just over an hour.
