Originally, the plan was for Owen Hart to win the tag team titles with Jim Neidhart. However, due to 'The Anvil' no-showing a number of WWF live events, Neidhart was released from the company, and Yokozuna was instead selected to be Owen's tag team partner.
Due to a production foul-up, one of the WrestleMania ring aprons did not get shipped to the Hartford Civic Center. As a result, the standard blue "WWF logo" ring apron had to be used on the blind-side of the camera. It is visible, most notably when Shawn Michaels leads Jenny McCarthy around the ring.
This was the only WrestleMania to feature the Smoking Gunns together as a tag team. They were supposed to be in the ten-man tag match at WrestleMania X (1994), but that got called off. The Gunns did not appear at WrestleMania XII (1996) due to injury, and broke up a few months afterward.
Pamela Anderson's husband Tommy Lee reportedly got into a physical altercation with Shawn Michaels backstage. This was why the stipulation of Pamela accompanying the Royal Rumble winner Shawn Michaels to the ring at WrestleMania was changed to Jenny McCarthy escorting Shawn instead.
Prior to WrestleMania XI, the WWF held pay-per-view events every 2-3 months. After this show took place, the company would start to broadcast them on a monthly basis due to competition from WCW, who had been doing the same thing. WWF/E have done this ever since, in some cases broadcasting two per month.
