WrestleMania V (1989) Poster

(1989 TV Special)

Alternate Versions

The DVD version changed the following superstars entrance themes to generic music:
  • The Twin Towers (The Big Boss Man and Akeem)

  • Demolition (Ax and Smash)

The old Coliseum video release omits an hour of footage to fit the event on one VHS tape. Almost all the archive footage from the original event was cut, and some matches were shortened. The new WWF DVD release is the full-length event, only with verbal references to WWF edited out, and some wrestlers' music replaced.
In the original pay-per-view broadcast, Howard Finkel accidentally announced "King Haku" as "King Tonga", which was a previous identity of Tonga Fifita years prior. All video releases of WrestleMania V have been dubbed over with the correct name announced.
