Trivia

Though this event was chronologically Wrestlemania 16, it is never referred to by number throughout the broadcast by commentary, interviews, or logos. It is the only Wrestlemania which holds that distinction. See more »

Goofs

The ending of the Hardcore title match was planned as follows: Hardcore Holly would cover Crash Holly, and the referee would only reach a pinfall count of two before the time limit expired, ensuring that Crash would win the match and keep the title. However, in execution, the referee makes and completes the three count just before the on-screen clock reaches zero. There is some initial confusion among the commentators and the ring announcer Howard Finkel as to the outcome of the match, before an on-the-spot decision is made to announce Hardcore Holly as the winner, and the new Hardcore Champion. A re-write was made for the following night's "Raw" show, allowing Crash to win the title back from Hardcore Holly. See more »

Quotes

The Rock: 12 months. 12 months ago, after every interview, after every run-in, after every backstabbing, after every win, after every loss, after everything they've thrown at The Rock, and after everything The Rock has thrown back, after every chokeslam, after every mandible claw, after every pedigree. The Rock says this. Is that if he can do it all over the again he would say, finally, The Rock has come back to Wrestlemania!

I didn't think this was a very good Wrestlemania. For a Wrestlemania event I would expect better matches. This PPV was just plain dumb and boring. I thought a lot of matches could have been better or scraped. This PPV deserves a C
