AllMusic Review by

If you knock the WWF for trying to cash in where they can, it may not do you any good. Vince McMahon not only turned professional wrestling into a ratings bulldozer, but the music industry also felt a touch of his wrath. What can you say about WWF Music Vol. 5 except for that the diehard wrestling fanatic will certainly appreciate it. But the average music listener may not jump at the opportunity to hear the Rock's unfortunate cornball attempt at his own song, "Pie." Billy Gunn's theme song, "The One," has a happy catchiness, and you might get a kick out of Motorhead's dark and angry theme for Triple H ("The Game"). But overall, the tracks are more thrilling on television, where you can watch your favorite stars walk down the aisle.
