"Considering that the average "Wrestlemania" is usually a three-hour affair and considering the fact that "Wrestlemania" has been an annual event for well over a decade, it's hard to conceive that a 60-minute video can adequately cover "the best" of an event that changed sports entertainment history and made wrestling a staple of pay-per-view TV. You don't really get the best of Wrestlemania --instead you get the best highlights of Wrestlemania. There's not a complete match to be found on this tape. This video may entertain the most casual of wrestling fans but solid wrestling fans may be irritated by the brief glimpses of some of the best wrestling to be found. (One glaring omission: The Savage-Steamboat match on the 1987 card --a match considered to be one of the greatest in wrestling history!) More satisfying are the "Best of" series from the WCW --the matches are edited but much more satisfying to watch. Still, the "Best of Wrestlemania" may serve as a primer to the uninitiated."
WWF slants the past of Wrestlemania

"This 90 minute tape has highs and lows, but is overall satisfing. On the higher notes, the tape illustrates the very idea behind wrestlemania, something that many younger wrestling fans never experienced before. Insight from Gorilla Monsoon, Fabulous Moolah, etc is spliced in throughout the tape, and although they remain in "character" for the most part, is still adds to the quality. The biggest low is a re-occuring theme to belittle the former WWF stars who now work for WCW, ie Hogan, Savage, Flair, Bret Hart, etc. References to Savage's "tainted" victoy at WM IV, calling a near fall on Hogan at WM III as "questionable", remarks insinuating that Kevin Nash sold out and failure to show Bret Hart win the Title at WM X, make this "Best OF" tape subjective to the WWF's current roster, as opposed to objectivly highlighting the actual best moments"
Could be better

"This video is alright, i was quite dissapointed when they left out most of the best matches, There are some good matches like Hogan V Andre,Shawn V Razor.If the video was on for longer it may make it a bit better.I was quite dissapointed."
OK, but matches way too short!!!!

"This video isn't awful, but I need to warn everybody who are considering buying it, they don't show close to the full matches. I think there were too many post-match summaries, and not enough actual matches. I wish I hadn't bought this tape, seeing that I wanted to get classic Wrestlemania matches, in their entirety."
The video is good, but not great.

"This video could have been better. It was entertaining and its worth buying considering its pretty cheap here at Wrestlezone. It would have been better if it had some classic matches in their entirety like the Undertaker vs Diesel match would have been great to see in more than 2 minutes."
