Trivia

Bret and Owen Hart originally planned to put on a match akin to the Randy Savage/Ricky Steamboat match from WrestleMania III (1987) (with numerous pin-fall attempts and reverses); when they attempted to put on a match of that kind at house shows, however, audiences did not respond in the way that they hoped (i.e. people were cheering for Owen, who was supposed to be the heel). To combat this, they went to their father, Stu Hart, for guidance and put together the basic match outline mere hours before WrestleMania X began.
Bret Hart says in Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows (1998) that it was Randy Savage's idea to have all the good guys in the locker room come out and congratulate Bret, celebrating his WWF title win.
A ten-man tag match was arranged for this event featuring The 1-2-3 Kid, Bob Holly, Tatanka, and The Smoking Gunns vs. Irwin R. Schyster, Jeff Jarrett, Rick Martel, and The Headshrinkers; due to the ladder match between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon running longer than expected, however, the match had to be postponed. This was explained on-screen by a backstage scene where the heel team couldn't agree who would be team captain. The contest was held on the April 4th edition of Raw is War (1993), where I.R.S. pinned The 1-2-3 Kid for the victory.
This was the final WrestleMania appearance of Randy Savage who went to WCW shortly after.
Shawn Michaels was originally planning to leave the WWF and join the WCW after this event, but he soon changed his mind after hearing that Hulk Hogan had also signed on with WCW.
This was the first WrestleMania to not feature The Undertaker.
The first WrestleMania without Hulk Hogan.

The first WrestleMania not to feature Tito Santana. He was the only WWF employee other than Hulk Hogan to have wrestled at Manias I through IX, but Tito quit the company when he felt his character was not getting enough promotional support from the powers that be.

Earthquake's opponent was originally scheduled to be Ludvig Borga, who had been out of action with an injured ankle since January 1994. But one week before the event, Vince McMahon realized that Borga would not be ready in time, so Adam Bomb was inserted into his spot.
