WrestleMania V: The Mega Powers Explode! That has a nice ring to it, don't you think? This event took place once again at Trump Plaza in East Rutherford, New Jersey on April 2nd, 1989. The main event was (yep, that's right) Hulk Hogan vs Macho Man Randy Savage for the WWF title.
Was this event worth going back to for another WrestleMania? The answer is no. I felt that this WrestleMania brought absolutely nothing to the table (not even the Mega Powers exploding was worth it).
Here's why I felt this was the weakest WrestleMania thus far: none of the matches were interesting, but does that make the whole event bad? Once again, no. The only saving grace was the InterContinental title between the Ultimate Warrior and Ravishing Rick Rude (then again, I would've like to see this match as the second of their rivalry, with either challenger getting a rematch). That stupid pose down back at the Royal Rumble should've been match 1 with Warrior retaining and this match as number 2. In my opinion, Rick Rude winning the title was a smart choice.
Overall, not only was this the shortest review (thus far) but also one of the lowest graded thus far. A nice, big fat .5 out of 5 (sorry, I can't do zeroes).
