I watched WrestleMania V again recently and the match order seems different to the VHS version. Unless it is the same and because of the edits they made its different.

I haven't seen it in a long time, but this order looks like what I remember https://prowrestling.fandom.com/wiki/WrestleMania_V

I don't know if they changed it from the PPV, but that's the VHS tape order from what I remember.

Thanks, I believe the UK version follows this match listing

They edited out 40+ minutes (from the original PPV broadcast which I'm assuming is the tape the Network is using) so WMV fit the three hour VHS. WrestleMania IV was on two 2 hour VHS so to my knowledge that is the complete event. Another thing they edit Rick Rude's music but I read somewhere they lost the license to that theme in 2016.

My uncle used to tape the original PPV broadcasts for me. I remember WM 4 clocking in at well over four hours and the original WM 5 PPV was like three and a half hours. I traded those tapes for Japanese wrestling and ECW and discovered New Jack and girls dripping blood from barbed wire in FMW.

I kinda miss my VHS wrestling tape days.

Yeah, VHS tape trading was cool. It's easy to download everything ever or get WWE Network, but back then you had to work for it so the stuff felt more special. Kind of like the days of buying music versus having every album on Spotify. People only listen to stuff once and move on to the next thing. But when you bought an album you had to spend time with it and maybe appreciated it more because you gave it repeated listens. When you got a tape you watched the whole thing several times and maybe enjoyed it more.

We are old. We will be in a nursing home talking about FMW tapes that looked like shit because they were 8th generation dubs soon. :olol:
