The event took place just before the end of the Persian Gulf war. The event was moved from Olympic Stadium to the Los Angeles Sports Arena because of slow ticket sales. Vince McMahon made up a story that a sniper might try and take out Robert Remus, who was, at the time, playing an Iraqi sympathizer.

This was the only WrestleMania to feature "The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith in a one on one Match. All of his other WrestleMania appearances were all tag-team Matches or six-man tag-team matches. Smith was supposed to wrestle The Berzerker a year later at WrestleMania VIII in a one-on-one match, but it was cut due to time constraints.

Moving the event from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (an outdoor arena) to the Los Angeles Sports Arena (an indoor arena) proved to have an unforeseen advantage. Weather conditions that day turned out to be cold and rainy, which might have ruined the event had it been held outdoors, as originally planned.
