3.0 out of 5 stars Classic WWF but not Great, 10 Nov 2003
This review is from: WWF: Wrestlemania 5 [VHS] [1989] (VHS Tape)
If like me you have been a fan of the WWF for ever then WM5 is a must have. Although it is not the best Mania by far on the theory that all the matches are far too short it is definitely vintage wwf with all the big stars.
The main event where the Mega powers"Explode" is more of just a Fizzle. Randy Savage spends most of the match beating the hulkster only for Hogan to Kick out of the Flying elbow and then
Pin savage within 60 seconds even though he only uses 3 moves to beat the Macho Man! Very dissapointing Finish.
The rest of the card is ok quite a good match between The Warrior and Rick Rude for the IC title but could The Weasle really hold down the Warrior? The Tag title between Demolition and the Powers of Pain with Mr fuji is like the rest of the matches far too short.
The other highlights include the 1st Mania Appearances of Mr.Perfect and Owen Hart (the Blue Blazer) both who have sadly passed away. After the Match a great Interview with Perfect and Mean Gene which started the ball rolling towards the greatest match of all time at summerslam 91 between Perfect and Bret Hart.
WM5 is a video that is great to watch to remember great names and some great finishing manouvers but dont blink or you will miss 3 matches (or if your watching Bobby Heenan vs the Red Rooster then you might miss more than that). Definitely one for the collection but not one to watch over and over again.
