WrestleMania 6 was the World Wrestling Federation's (WWF) sixth WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view event and the first to be held outside of the United States. It took place on April 1, 1990, at the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario with an announced then Skydome attendance record of 67,678.

Aside from its record-breaking attendance, the event is arguably best remembered for "The Ultimate Challenge" – the main event match which saw Hulk Hogan (WWF Champion) vs The Ultimate Warrior (WWF Intercontinental Champion), in which both championship titles were on the line. On February 3, 1990, a week after Hogan and Warrior crossed paths in WWE Royal Rumble 1990 Match, Hogan put forth "The Ultimate Challenge" to the Warrior, and had to know whether Hulkamania or the power of the Warrior was the strongest force in the World Wrestling Federation. On February 10, the match was officially announced as the main event of WrestleMania VI by WWF President Jack Tunney. On February 24, Tunney announced that both the WWF Championship and Intercontinental Championship would be on the line for the first-time ever during the match. At WrestleMania, Warrior won his sole World Championship.

At WrestleMania VI, Brutus Beefcake was the first person to pin Curt Hennig, aka Mr. Perfect in a televised match, thus ending Perfect's lengthy undefeated streak on television. Hennig had actually been beaten on house shows before WrestleMania, as the announcers said nothing about his "perfect record" during the match.
