  • Unlike with Mortal Kombat, where the characters were filmed only moving sideways, the wrestlers in WWF Wrestlemania would also be moving upwards and downwards. To be able to film their movements properly, the developers were required to purchase a horse treadmill.

  • It was long rumored that the only reason that the Undertaker is the only wrestler with an actual "fatality" of sorts was that the WWF got wind of this and told Midway not to include any other fatalities in the game. In reality, the design team was in a rush to finish the game and decided to exclude the other wrestlers' fatalities in order to speed up development.

  • The home versions of WWF Wrestlemania (released as WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game on home consoles and computers) were developed simultaneously alongside the arcade game. However, the conversions were started before the arcade game was completed, meaning that some features found in the arcade were not included in the home versions.
