3.0 out of 5 stars The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
The first thing you need to know before purchasing this set is that this is the Coliseum Video/Silver Vision Home Video version of Wrestlemania V and VI simply transferred to DVD. Nearly all matches with the exception the main events were cut shorter in order to fit a 4 hour event onto a 3 hour VHS tape. If you are looking for the full uncut versions of these events then...

This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 5 And 6 [DVD] (DVD)
The first thing you need to know before purchasing this set is that this is the Coliseum Video/Silver Vision Home Video version of Wrestlemania V and VI simply transferred to DVD. Nearly all matches with the exception the main events were cut shorter in order to fit a 4 hour event onto a 3 hour VHS tape. If you are looking for the full uncut versions of these events then you need to be looking at the Wrestlemania Anthology Series. However there is one annoying drawback with the Anthology versions and that is, although the action is uncut, a lot of the original theme music is edited out as are any references to "WWF".

Wrestlemania V

Wrestlemania V, as it was the year before, is held at the lifeless Trump Plaza and lacks any real atmosphere. The `89 event was however a tad stronger than its predecessor, although it once again suffered from having too many matches on the card.

The main event was the culmination of an excellent year long storyline as Randy Savage defended the WWF World Title against Hulk Hogan in a very good match and the best on the card. Savage was truly at his best around this time and this is widely regarded as one of Hogan's best matches in the WWF.

What else should you look out for? Well, the Intercontinental Title match is worth a look as Ravishing Rick Rude works his backside off in making the Ultimate Warrior look good before relieving him of the gold. ... The Rockers take on the Twin Towers in a classic battle of power versus speed. Check out Akeem's devastating clothesline on Shawn Michaels! ... Mr. Perfect and The Blue Blazer (Owen Hart) have a very good bout, although with the way it's been cut it looks like Blazer dominated a short match with Perfect escaping with a smash-and-grab victory. ... And the Brain Busters have a decent match with Strike Force.

The rest of the matches are passable (Hart Foundation vs. Honky Tonk Man & Greg Valentine) or awful (Jim Duggan vs Bad News Brown).

Wrestlemania VI

After the lack atmosphere in the previous two years, it finally feels like Wrestlemania again as the Toronto Sky Dome plays host for Wrestlemania VI in front of 67,678 screaming fans! The main event featured a match between the two biggest babyfaces in the industry as WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan took on Intercontinental Champion the Ultimate Warrior in a match where both titles were on the line. You really had to be a fan at the time to comprehend just how big Hulk Hogan versus Ultimate Warrior really was. Hogan was in the unfamiliar role of having to call the match (usually the heel's job) and carry his opponent. It turned out to be a very good match and one of the most famous in WWF/WWE history as the Warrior walked out with the one and only World Title of his career.

The rest of the card was pretty average unfortunately, although you wouldn't know by listening to the hot crowd! Ted Dibiase's Million Dollar Belt match with Jake Roberts was pretty decent, as was The Rockers' bout with the Orient Express but both matches suffered because of the lame finishes. Brutus Beefcake's surprise win over Mr. Perfect wasn't bad and Demolition's third World Tag Team Title win had the crowd roaring even if the action was pretty poor. The rest was filler and squash matches I'm afraid.

This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 5 And 6 [DVD] (DVD)
Wrestlemania 5 (1989) and mania 6 (1990) contain the guts of 24 matches between them highlighting that at this stage the WWF had a real riches of talent,well it looked that way although some of these matches are duds there is enough quality to make this a worthwhile purchase.
When i first bought these on vhs many moonds ago there was nothing better than watching these,now that i am older and have bought them again on dvd i notice that some of this is filler to the max,it is good to have so many matches but some barely last a second so whats the real point,matches like the blue blazer vs mr perfect do indeed deserve longer but at this point the WWF was all about the muscle heads and some of those matches leave alot to be desired.
The two main events are special,hogan vs macho and hogan vs the ultimate warrior,those two matches could grace any arena in any era,scattered throughout both dvds are great matches and poor ones,none of it will kill you but its worth a look,i know you will agree.

4.0 out of 5 stars wwf storied wrestlemanias roll on, 31 Oct 2007
This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 5 And 6 [DVD] (DVD)
ah back in the day. wm5 has over a dozen matches although a lot of them are boring but its still worth watching. wm6 is famous for not only warrior and hogan but other instances, more later.

wm5 couldnt have had a worse opener. hercules and king haku square off, no one cares! maybe a longer version of the blazer/perfect match could have gone here. next up is a match which would have been a good opener. twin towers bulk vs the speed of the rockers. can the 400lb monsters outmuscle the young upstarts?

brutus the barber then squares off against the million dollar man in an average bout. will the barber snip the millionaires locks or is the barber gonna pay the price? next up is the kiss of death for the fabolous rougeou brothers as they job to the bushwhackers. so much for your heel turn!

the blue blazer(aka owen hart) then goes one on one with the undefeated mr perfect. solid match but had this been the early 90s when hart was getting pushed this would have been a 20 minute classic. as it is the wwf is more interested in 300 lb monsters so this lasts about 6 mins. a longer match would have been excellent.

there is a lot of editing here which cuts out segments with jesse ventura, mr fuji, demolition and the powers of pain. the latter 3 mentioned are then involved in the next match which is for the tag titles as powers of pain team with demos former manager fuji to take on tag champs demolition. at the time a lot of people couldnt wait for this bout but its nothing special. but can the powers finally land the gold or are demolition about to continue their year long reign at the top at the very arena they won their titles in?

next is another bore as ronnie garvin battles dino bravo, next please!

and the next bout is one of the matches of the night. the strike force team of rick martel/tito santana reform after one year apart. they go up against the crafty team of the brain busters but will bobby heenans busters be too clever for the reformed duo or is this a winning return for the former champs one year after losing the gold?

then roddy piper returns to the wwf following a 2 year absence as we get a dose of both the brother love show and pipers pit. special guest morton downey junior should have a lot to say. next up we see big john studd referee a match between his wm1 opponent andre the giant and jake roberts. can big john keep these warriors from tearing each other apart?

another tag match highlights the depth of tag team talent at the time as former intercontinental champs greg valentine and honky tonk man (rhythm and blues) take on the hart foundation. not one of brets best booked matches but again not exactly painful to watch (bret hart is involved so its atleast gonna be someway good).

rick rude then goes for IC gold against the ultimate warrior, can the brain and rude outsmart the warrior or is the champ gonna stay undefeated. their matches at summerslam 89 and 90 were far better (although again this was edited as the commentators refer to a pinfall that wasnt even shown). when you talk about ugly matches here though you have to mention jim duggan and bad news brown. youll miss nothing here. or with the match between bobby heenan and the red rooster(why that match was given a wrestlemania spot i dont know).

next up the mega powers explode as former friends macho man and hulk hogan square off for the macho mans title. many regard this as hogans best ever match. and for that we have savage to thank (did savage really excel at wm or what?) and how will their lovely valet elizabeth view it all.

on to wm6
standard opener with koko and martel is followed by a tagtitle bout with andre/haku defending against demolition.can the demos bring the gold home for the 3rd time and leave wm for the 3rd time running with the belts (crowd love this). next is earthquake and hercules, is herc just more cannon fodder for the 470 pound monster?

moving on brutus the barber tries to end the unbeaten record of the man who broke his ribs at the royal rumble mr perfect, or will the genius screw everything up for the barber? another bad news brown brawl then sticks its nose in in a match with roddy piper NEXT

hart foundation take on the bolshevikes, blink and youll miss it, so soon after its bobby the brains new man the barbarian against tito santana(barbie still has his powers of pain gear despite the team splitting).

next is machoman/sherri vs rhodes/sapphire, NEXT the orient express (fujis new team) take on the rockers. is it to be a winning start for Fuji? the jake the snake vs dibiase is next, can jake the snake win the million dollar belt? meanwhile another split tag team the twin towers meet next. big boss man vs akeem which is kept short thankfully.

a forgettable bushwhackers/honky tonk man segment occurs before rick rude takes on the legendary jimmy snuka. finally we get ic champ ultimate warrior vs world champ hulk hogan winner takes all bout. these 2 pull off a great match. the warrior finally destroys hulkamania but this match is so special (as is the end) that words cant describe

worth watching for nostalgic purposes.

3.0 out of 5 stars The peak of Hulkamania...the false dawn for the Ultimate Warrior, 8 Sep 2010
By 
IWFIcon - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 5 And 6 [DVD] (DVD)
Historically, Hulk Hogan's match with Andre The Giant at WrestleMania III is the more lauded (commercially anyway) yet it was his main event at WrestleMania V opposite the Macho Man Randy Savage that saw him earn the first million dollar pay-cheque for one match. Artistically as well, the Savage match blew the primative encounter with Andre out of the water.

Meticulously booked for over a year, this is a WrestleMania main event that makes sense. And for once (in this era anyway) the hype was matched by the action. Sure, WM V is essentially a one match card, but oh, what a match! That's not to say that old-school wrestling fans won't find other things on this disc to enjoy. The Twin Towers/Rockers tag match is about as exciting an eight minute match as you are ever likely to see, Mr Perfect and the Blue Blazer (the late, great Owen Hart under a mask) aren't given a long time to impress but they pull out all the stops nevertheless) and Rick Rude works his magic with the Ultimate Warrior, dragging him to a good match (although the pair would go on to have better matches in the future) and the shock ending (Warrior didn't lose at the time at all) is fun. It's also fun for this viewer to see Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard in tag team action. Sure encounters pitting The Red Rooster against Bobby Heenan, Jim Duggan against Bad News Brown and Dino Bravo against Ronnie Garvin are matches I would never want to have seen once, never mind go back for a repeat viewing, but with the stacked shows the WWF presented at the time it was only expected that some matches would be useless.

WrestleMania VI was supposed to be the coronation of The Ultimate Warrior as the WWF's BIG babyface. He was certainly given every bit of backing in that task, at least until he'd actually won the match. Hulk Hogan losing clean was unheard of in this era and whilst the Warrior benefitted from this, Hogan subtly (or not-so subtly) made sure that all eyes were on him after the match. Still, this was certainly a great match considering who was in it (these two normally had to be carried be superior opponents if we were going to witness anything special) and even though it hasn't aged well it retains it's sense of awe and wonderment to the modern day viewer.

There's precious little else to recommend on the show though. The Rockers have a decent bout with The Orient Express but the non-finish is disappointing and the teams had better matches during their long feud. Similarly Ted DiBiase and Jake Roberts have a decent match which is marred by another non-finish. Precious few other matches are given any decent length of time to work with and those that are don't exactly thrill.

If WrestleMania lives or dies by it's main event, and it certainly did in this era, both of these shows deliver. However given some of the truly great WrestleMania's in the modern era the undercards on these two shows certainly don't live up to the billing of the "biggest show of the year." That said, if you are a fan of this era and for some reason have never seen the two main events you certainly won't be disappointed with them. Whether those two matches are reason enough to shell out on this set is something you would have to make your own mind up about.
