    WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    January 1, 1991

    As the calendar flips to 1991, some inside the WWF would say the product has begun to get stale. Ticket sales are declining as well as merchandise sales. Long gone are the golden days of the 80’s where everyone was making money hand over fist. Hulk Hogan is still a top draw but doesn’t have the drawing power he once had. The Ultimate Warrior experiment has essentially flopped. The question remains-has the product really gotten stale? Or is the cyclical wrestling business just headed for the inevitable down period? Vince McMahon doesn’t want to wait for the answer. He grows impatient with each passing day.

    We can trace Vince’s impatient manner back to just one short week ago. WWF was running their biggest house show of the year-the day after Christmas at Madison Square Garden. Well known to flip a quick profit, Vince was banking on this show to deliver both inside the ring and at the gate. Instead, it flopped, bringing in the lowest gate at Madison Square Garden ever. Who was to blame? Instead of pointing fingers, Vince decided to call an emergency meeting with both staff and superstars.

    At this meeting Vince didn’t raise his voice once. He was calm and cool as he went over each bullet point he, Pat Patterson and Bruce Prichard thought out over the course of the long week following the dreaded MSG house show. The response from the meeting was an overly positive one, from all included. Vince has promised a new and different WWF moving forward in 1991, and all we can do is sit back and watch with excitement.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. Much appreciated.

    BIG ROYAL RUMBLE ANNOUNCEMENT
    In the first news of the 1991 calendar year, WWF President Jack Tunney announced a twist to this year’s 30-Man Royal Rumble Match. The winner of this year’s match will automatically be granted a WWF Championship match at Wrestlemania 7.

    Hulk Hogan was the first person to jump on board when he announced he would be entering the Royal Rumble match. Seen as the overpowering favorite, Hogan has all the momentum in the world heading into the Royal Rumble match.

    As of right now, we have a short confirmed list of current participants for the Royal Rumble Match:
    Hulk Hogan, Jake Roberts, Mr. Perfect, Ted Dibiase, The Undertaker, The Warlord, "The Model" Rick Martel, Big Bossman, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Sgt. Slaughter, Road Warrior Hawk, Road Warrior Animal, Earthquake, Tugboat, Greg Valentine, Tito Santana


    QUEEN SHERRI’S ULTIMATUM
    Queen Sherri is not known to be a patient woman. She has gotten fed up with Macho King not having the WWF title around his waist. Since joining forces with the Macho King, he has struggled to catapult himself into the WWF title picture, and Sherri is well aware of that. She told Savage that if he didn’t produce World title gold around his waist in 1991 that she would look elsewhere for services. Martel rolled off other house brand named superstars such as Ted Dibiase, Mr. Perfect and even Jake Roberts as replacements for Savage if he doesn’t produce. In return, we have seen a very aggressive and angry Macho King over the past month. Savage made his presence toward WWF Champion Ultimate Warrior felt when he brutally attacked him on the last episode of Prime Time Wrestling of 1990. With the Royal Rumble right around the corner, Savage then issued a challenge to the Ultimate Warrior for a title match. Warrior, not being known to back down from a challenge, accepted Savage’s request.

    In recent weeks since the match was announced for the Royal Rumble, we have seen a new side of Macho King that none of us have ever seen. He has become extremely paranoid and jealous every time Queen Sherri mentions leaving him to manage another superstar. He begins to peak behind him at all times, thinking someone is out to get him. He questions Sherri and wonders if she is setting him up, but she re-assures him that she is just giving him a jolt to perform better inside the ring and out.

    TURNING TO THE DARKSIDE
    Jake Roberts has had a very successful tenure in the WWF since joining a few years ago. During that time he has seen his stock raised to unforeseen heights, but there is still something missing. After being absent from television for the entire month of December, Roberts returned in early January and everyone could clearly see that he wasn’t the same. Roberts cut a chilling promo in which he declared he was sick and tired of playing second fiddle to the likes of Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior and Macho King. Roberts said he wrote a list, with those three on the top of it, and one by one, he will cross each name off his list. He said being a fan favorite has done nothing but leave him in Hogan’s shadow. Roberts went on to say that 1991 will be his year, and he doesn’t care how it gets done, but he will become a main event player. Roberts then entered himself in the Royal Rumble match, and is clearly out for blood if he gets his hands on Hulk Hogan.

    THE BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE
    “Everybody’s got a price!” The quote is not only Ted Dibiase’s most famous, but it is the words that he lives by. After the announcement that the winner of the Royal Rumble would be guaranteed a WWF title shot at Wrestlemania, every superstar entered in the match began trying to one up each other. Ted Dibiase appeared on The Brother Love Show in early January, promising fans he had some monumental news. Dibiase announced that he will begin recruiting talent to join him as he builds his “Million Dollar Empire.” Speculation grew as to who he would recruit.

    We didn’t have to wait too long, as the next week on The Brother Love Show, Dibiase paid off Slick for the rights to THE WARLORD. Dibiase crowned Warlord as the muscle of the Empire, and another step to Dibiase winning the Royal Rumble and becoming the WWF champion. With The Warlord in his pocket, Dibiase wasn’t done and said Warlord was only the tip of the iceberg. He wasn’t kidding when the following week he announced THE UNDERTAKER as his newest member. Dibiase also added BROTHER LOVE to his Empire, as head of Media Relations. Due to Brother Love’s promotion, he told Undertaker he bought him a new manager, straight from the morgue. PAUL BEARER was then brought out and announced as not only the newest member of the Empire, but The Undertaker’s personal manager.

    Dibiase, Undertaker and The Warlord all entered the Royal Rumble match. Dibiase told the world he has a top notch game plan set in place that even Bill Parcells couldn’t infiltrate, and he would be the last man standing in the ring at the Royal Rumble. On paper, The Million Dollar Empire has the chance to be the most dominant faction to ever step foot in the WWF, and with the financial backing of Dibiase, the heights as to which it can grow are limitless.

    ON TOP OF HIS GAME
    Since beating Texas Tornado for the Intercontinental Championship back in November, Mr. Perfect has looked better than ever both inside and outside the ring. Texas Tornado demanded a re-match at the Royal Rumble following a victory over The Barbarian on Prime Time Wrestling. He called out Mr. Perfect and told him that he beat him once, and he can beat him again. Perfect gladly accepted Texas Tornado’s challenge and even went as far as to say Tornado wouldn’t last more than 10 minutes in the ring with him at the Royal Rumble, that’s how good he is right now.

    Perfect is clearly one of the best wrestlers on the roster and announced he would be pulling double duty at the Royal Rumble. Not only will be defending his Intercontinental title against Texas Tornado, he will also be a participant in the Royal Rumble match. If anyone is equipped to go 2 for 2 at the Royal Rumble, it is Mr. Perfect.

    TAG TEAM SUPREMACY
    The Hart Foundation have reigned supreme in the tag team division for quite some time now, and at the Royal Rumble will face one of their tougher opponents in Smash and Crush. There have been rumblings inside and outside the locker room that Bret Hart is looking to become a full time singles competitor and focus on winning the Intercontinental and eventually the World title. Demolition has exploited this rumor ever since it was announced the two teams would square off at the Royal Rumble. Demolition even went as far as to sneak attack Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart the week before the Royal Rumble. As The Hart Foundation were heading down to the ring for a non-title match against Power & Glory, Smash and Crush appeared out of nowhere and brutally beat down both men. Eventually Crush dropped Neidhart throat-first on the steel guard rail, while Smash took care of Bret Hart. Smash placed Hart’s arm on the steel ring steps. Crush threw the ringside announcer from his chair, picked it up and sandwiched Bret Hart’s arm between the chair and the steel steps.

    With the champions less than 100 percent leading into the Royal Rumble, the speculation has only grown that The Hart Foundation is clearly headed for an exit. We don’t know the condition of either Hart or Neidhart, but knowing the tough Calgary background they both come from we should expect them to come into the Royal Rumble looking for blood.

    SHOCKING
    The Mountie isn’t well liked in the WWF. There is just something about both him and his manager Jimmy Hart that rubs people the wrong way. British Bulldog, on the other hand, is a fan favorite and loved by all. When the two squared off in early January, The Mountie was getting jealous that the fans were cheering for Bulldog and not for him. After Bulldog easily hit his finishing move the running powerslam, Jimmy Hart pulled The Mountie out of the ring and to the back, with the referee awarding the match to Bulldog via countout. Bulldog wasn’t satisfied and challenged Mountie to a re-match the following week. This time, as Bulldog hoisted Mountie up for a running powerslam, Jimmy Hart handed Mountie his cattle prod. While Bulldog was running to execute the move The Mountie stuck the cattle prod right in between the shoulders of Bulldog, stunning him instantly. The Mountie then easily hooked the leg for the 3 count. Since then, Bulldog has been out of action rehabbing his injured back from the cattle prod attack. Bulldog was seen in a special interview last week and challenged The Mountie to a match at the Royal Rumble, and vowed to end The Mountie once and for all.

    POWER VS. SPEED
    Hercules and Paul Roma, known as Power & Glory are a hot tag team entering 1991. So are their opponents The Rockers. These two will square off at the Royal Rumble, and also have a past history dating back to last year’s Summerslam. Both teams want a win here to move closer to that coveted Tag Team title shot.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    I take it you're retconning the Jake Roberts' eye injury? Some good stuff here in terms of character work especially Savage and Roberts. For DiBiase's faction, I really like the inclusion of The Warlord. An awful worker, but if he's used as just the muscle rather than be the focus as a singles wrestler, it'd be far better use of him. I'm not exactly sold on The Undertaker though. Sure, DiBiase brought him into the WWE, but what's the reasoning behind getting Taker to join the group? He's not exactly someone swayed by offers of money.

    Good start though.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    Jim, first off thanks for reading. To answer your questions, the Roberts being blinded by Martel angle never happened, and I believe (I could be wrong) Brother Love was Undertaker's manager at the beginning of 1991 and Paul Bearer was introduced early in January. So the story here is Dibiase bought out both Brother Love and Undertaker. Anyways, here is the Royal Rumble. I want to get around reviewing a few other BTB's on here and will be doing so over the next week. Hope everyone enjoys!


    Royal Rumble 1991 Results
    January 19, 1991
    Miami Arena
    Miami, Florida
    The WWF logo is shown, followed by the Royal Rumble logo. The classic Royal Rumble theme song plays as Vince McMahon narrates the participants in the Royal Rumble match later tonight.

    We cut to a shot of 16,000 screaming fans to the voice of Gorilla Monsoon welcoming us to the Royal Rumble. He introduces his commentating partner for tonight, Rowdy Roddy Piper! Piper says he’s excited to be here tonight and his heart goes out to those brave men and women overseas fighting for our freedom. Gorilla and Piper talk about who has the best shot to win the Royal Rumble match, and wonder what type of tricks Dibiase will have up his sleeve. No more time to talk, The Rocker’s theme song hits and we go down to ringside for our opening contest!



    The Rockers vs. Power & Glory

    The Rockers start out hot here, hitting double team moves left and right. Roma and Hercules have had enough and begin walking up the aisle way, signaling they are finished here tonight. Not so fast. Michaels and Jannetty run up the aisle way and pounce on Hercules and Roma. The referee begins to count to 10 but eventually The Rockers get their foes back into the ring. Some more double team moves by Michaels and Jannetty, who look more locked in than ever here tonight. Hercules begins to get some offense in on Jannetty after Roma tripped him up while running the ropes. Hercules hits a huge sidewalk slam followed by an elbow drop for a near fall. Hercules and Roma begin to cut the ring in half, leaving Michaels as the hot man on the outside looking in. Jannetty fights and claws his way toward Michaels but Roma drags him back over to his corner. Roma hits a snap suplex on Jannetty, and then props him up onto the top turnbuckle. Roma attempts to hook his arm but Jannetty blocks his attempt. Jannetty fights his way out of Roma’s grasp before kicking Hercules off the apron and to the floor. Jannetty then jumps off the top turnbuckle and hits a tornado DDT on Roma! Jannetty quickly tags in Michaels and the two hit a double Russian Leg Sweep! Hercules tries to run in but gets hit with a double superkick! Michaels lifts Roma up in a suplex position while Jannetty climbs to the top turnbuckle once again. Jannetty flies off and the two connect with the Rocker Plex! Michaels hooks the leg and gets the three count!

    Winners at 8:24- The Rockers

    Our announcers talk about how athletic The Rockers looked here tonight and say they are one of the fastest rising teams in the WWF.

    We cut to the back where Gene Okurland is standing by with Intercontinental Champion Mr. Perfect. Okurland asks him his thoughts on tonight. Perfect says he will be the first person ever to defend his title in one match and then go on and win the Royal Rumble. He says he stands by his words that Texas Tornado won’t last longer than 10 minutes tonight in their match.



    Intercontinental Championship
    ©Mr. Perfect vs. Texas Tornado


    Perfect starts out the match taunting Tornado, holding up his IC title while telling him he will never get his hands on it again. Perfect then pokes Tornado in the eye while the referee hands the IC title to the timekeeper. Perfect puts Tornado in a headlock. Tornado throws Perfect off the ropes and hits a shoulder block. Perfect gets up and Tornado hits another shoulder block. Perfect rolls out of the ring, signaling for a timeout. Tornado waits for him to get back in the ring. Perfect rolls in the ring and quickly rolls back out, saying he isn’t ready to enter yet. Perfect walks over to the timekeeper to ask him how much time has passed; the timekeeper tells him under 2 minutes. Perfect then hops up on the apron and Tornado grabs him by the head. Perfect hops off the apron and smashes Tornado’s neck on the ropes! Perfect then climbs to the top turnbuckle and hits a flying cross body. Perfect then lifts Tornado up and delivers a suplex. Perfect is in complete control now, and begins to toy with Tornado. Perfect slaps him in the back of the head, telling him he’s looking at a real Intercontinental champion. Tornado fights back with hard punches and kicks. Tornado hits a quick DDT and sets Perfect up for the Discus Punch. Tornado spins and goes for it but Perfect ducks, grabs Tornado and hits him with the PerfectPlex! Perfect holds the bridge while the referee counts to 3.

    Winner at 9:59 and STILL Intercontinental Champion- Mr. Perfect

    Perfect quickly exits the ring as he grabs his title belt. He checks with the timekeeper as he tells him the total time of the match was 9:59. Perfect smiles as he taunts Tornado and the crowd while he struts up the ramp, holding his IC title high in the air.

    On the side of the stage Gene Okurland is standing by, waiting for his next interview. Everyone is waiting in anticipation as to who is coming out…"OHHH WHAT A RUSHHHH!” The crowd becomes unglued as Hawk and Animal, the Legion of Doom, head out towards Okurland. Hawk says they came out here tonight to issue a challenge. Animal says they have been sitting around watching teams like Demolition and The Hart Foundation rot away the tag team division. Hawk says they want the winner of the tag team championship here tonight at Wrestlemania 7. They don’t care which team wins because all they are gonna’ be doing is keeping the titles warm for them. Hawk lets out another “OHHH WHAT A RUSHHH!” as the crowd cheers them to the back.

    A video is shown of some superstars talking about the Royal Rumble. We see Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Sgt. Slaughter, Big Bossman, and The Model Rick Martel all state their case to win the Royal Rumble.



    Tag Team Championship
    ©The Hart Foundation vs. Demolition (Smash & Crush)


    Bret Hart is sporting an elbow brace, following the attacks from Demolition this past week. Hart and Smash begin the match. Hart is clearly the more athletic of the two, and uses his speed to his advantage early on to neutralize Smash’s power. Hart and Neidhart keep Smash far away from his corner, cutting the ring in half to their favor. Neidhart begins wearing down Smash with hard right hands and forearms. Neidhart whips Smash into the corner and follows up with an avalanche.

    Smash falls flat on the mat and Neidhart goes for the pin attempt until Crush breaks it up. Bret Hart runs in and delivers a dropkick to Crush. Crush stays on his feet, staggering. Hart runs off the ropes to clothesline Crush, but Crush ducks and Hart runs right into Neidhart, knocking him down. Hart turns around and Crush picks him up and tosses him over the ropes, to the floor. The referee finally restores order. Smash has had enough time to muster up enough strength and tags in Crush. Crush takes control of Neidhart, still dazed from the mistaken clothesline from Bret Hart.

    Hart is on the outside in pain, as he attempts to make it back to his corner for his partner to tag him in. Crush lifts the massive Neidhart in the air and presses him over his head before dropping him hard to the mat. Crush gets a near fall. Our announcers hype up the size and strength of the youngster Crush and say he has some future ahead of him here in the WWF. Crush lifts Neidhart up again for a powerbomb but Neidhart muscles out of it and hits a desperation DDT. Neidhart struggles to get to his corner and tags in Bret Hart. Hart begins to clean house hitting Crush with flying forearms left and right. Hart even goes over to Smash and knocks him off the apron. Hart turns around and ducks a big boot from Crush before tagging in Neidhart.

    Hart and Neidhart begin some double team work with a double clothesline. Neidhart holds the beaten Crush up as Hart goes to punch him but Crush ducks and Bret Hart nails Jim Neidhart with an unintentional right hand. Our announcers play up this was the second time in the match Hart has hit is own partner instead of a member of Demolition! Crush then grabs both Neidhart and Hart’s heads and bangs them together. Hart falls on the mat in pain while Neidhart is out on his feet. Crush then picks up Neidhart and hits a sit-down powerbomb! Crush tags in Smash. Crush hits a backbreaker and holds it while Smash climbs to the top turnbuckle. DEMOLTION DECAPATATION! Smash hooks the leg and gets the three count. We have new tag team champions!

    Winners at 15:27 and NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS- Demolition (Crush & Smash)

    Demolition are handed their newly won tag team title belts as they celebrate up the aisle way. Hart and Neidhart both get to their feet. Neidhart looks at Bret Hart with a sad look, knowing this might just be the last time they’ve tagged together. Hart and Neidhart share a hug before Neidhart raises Bret Hart’s hand, signaling the end of the run as a tag team.

    We see a few more videos from earlier today with superstars hyping their spot in the Royal Rumble. Hulk Hogan, Jake Roberts, Mr. Perfect, and Ted Dibiase with the entire Million Dollar Empire.



    WWF President Jack Tunney walks out to an applause, as he will be sitting ringside to award a WWF Championship match to the winner of the Royal Rumble.

    In the ring is Howard Finkel, who goes over the rules for the Royal Rumble match. Let’s all find out who drew number 1!

    The Model Rick Martel is out first at number 1. He has a smug look on his face and is surely not too happy about drawing number 1.

    Number 2 is Tito Santana! These two have a history and Santana hasn’t forgotten about Martel turning on him.

    Santana enters the ring and immediately attacks Martel, almost eliminating him in the process. Martel responds with a thumb to the eye of Santana to slow him down just a bit. Martel wears down Santana with an armbar and a sleeper hold, and taunts the crowd who think he is boring.

    The Barbarian is number 3. Barbarian runs down and begins to beat down on both men. Barbarian picks up Santana and goes to eliminate him, but Santana holds on. Martel attempts to eliminate both men, but Barbarian mule kicks him across the ring. Santana is on the apron but slides back in the ring. Barbarian shifts his attention to Martel, who begs and pleads for him to not hurt him. Barbarian picks up Martel and chokeslams him hard to the mat as the clock counts down.

    Greg Valentine is out next at number 4. Valentine runs in and begins to beat down on Santana. Barbarian joins in and throws punches at both men. Martel runs into the corner and sits, giving himself a breather. The Barbarian picks up Valentine and attempts to throw him over, but Valentine holds onto the ropes and kicks Barbarian in the head. Valentine then tries to throw The Barbarian out but to no avail.

    Jimmy Snuka is in at number 5! We haven’t seen him in quite some time. Snuka goes over and begins beating down on The Barbarian. On the other side of the ring Martel throws Greg Valentine over the top rope and to the floor. Snuka and Barbarian trade knife edge chops in the corner with both men not feeling a single chop. The crowd is into this and the two chop each other until both of their chests are beat red.

    Greg Valentine is Eliminated by Rick Martel

    Number 6 is Ted Dibiase! He does not look thrilled about drawing such a low number. He walks down to the ring, escorted by Virgil and Brother Love. Dibiase takes his time getting into the ring. Dibiase finally gets into the ring and is met by Jimmy Snuka. Snuka begins unloading on Dibiase who eventually falls to the mat and rolls out of the ring through the bottom rope, so he is not eliminated. Dibiase, Virgil and Brother Love huddle up on the outside and talk things over. Meanwhile, inside the ring Martel hits Santana with a neck breaker before passing him off to The Barbarian. Barbarian hits a big body slam before tossing Santana over the top turnbuckle.

    Tito Santana is Eliminated by The Barbarian

    Number 7 is Koko B. Ware! Koko flaps his arms and dances his way into the ring. Once he crosses the ropes he gets flattened by a clothesline from the Barbarian. On the other side of the ring, Rick Martel escapes elimination from Jimmy Snuka. Martel gets tossed over the ropes but hangs onto the bottom rope with everything he’s got. He crawls back under the ropes and hits Snuka with a low blow. Martel then easily tosses Snuka out and to the floor!

    Jimmy Snuka is Eliminated by Rick Martel

    Big Bossman is out next at number 8! Bossman gets a big crowd reaction as he enters the ring and targets Ted Dibiase. Brother Love hops up onto the apron and attempts to hand Bossman a wad of $100 bills. Bossman looks at Brother Love and throws the money back at him before pushing him off the apron. Brother Love falls on top of Virgil. Back in the ring Koko B. Ware is getting in some offense on Rick Martel. The Barbarian momentarily helps Dibiase beat down Bossman before turning his attention to Dibiase and hits him with a body slam as the clock counts down.

    Number 9 is Haku! Haku runs down to the ring and begins to hit everyone with hard right hands. Haku cleans house. Dibiase once again rolls underneath the bottom rope and regroups on the outside. Haku easily disposes of Koko B. Ware, eliminating him. Dibiase quickly runs into the ring while Haku is still gaining his balance after eliminating Koko and Dibiase throws him up and over the top rope and to the floor!

    Koko B Ware is Eliminated by Haku
    Haku is Eliminated by Ted Dibiase


    Number 10 is Bushwhacker Luke! Luke slowly makes his way to the ring. Our announcers talk about how Martel is too smart to get eliminated, and conserves his energy by picking and choosing his spots during the match. Luke enters the ring and is quickly eliminated by Martel who throws him over the top and to the floor. Bossman begins to work over on Dibiase, attempting to get him out of the ring. The Barbarian and Martel trade blows as we wait for the clock to count down.

    Bushwhacker Luke is Eliminated by Rick Martel

    Tugboat enters at number 11. Tugboat was built for the Royal Rumble match. Tugboat enters the ring and immediately helps Bossman with Dibiase. Both gigantic men have Dibiase on the ropes but Virgil and Brother Love grab onto Dibiase’s legs to prevent him from being eliminated. The referees on the outside warn both men that next time they get involved, they will be thrown out to the back. The clock continues to count down.

    Number 12 is a surprise entrant, making his unannounced return to the WWF! RICKY THE DRAGON STEAMBOAT! Steamboat gets a huge ovation from the fans as he runs down and slides into the ring. Steamboat goes for Dibiase right away. Bossman and Tugboat double team The Barbarian on the other side while Rick Martel sees everyone fighting each other and decides to sit back down in the corner, taking another breather. Bossman and Tugboat are successful this time and eliminate The Barbarian over the top rope!

    The Barbarian is Eliminated by Big Bossman & Tugboat

    Earthquake is in at number 13. Another man built for the Royal Rumble. Naturally, Tugboat and Earthquake seek one another out and begin throwing cinder block right hands on one another. Big Bossman gets his hands on Dibiase while Steamboat attempts to eliminate Martel.

Hogan begins his signature poses inside the ring as our announcers speculate whether he will face Ultimate Warrior or Macho King, which is still to come later on tonight.

    Roberts begins to walk up the aisle way, with a sadistic mean look on his face. Our announcers speculate if Roberts is now completely turned to the dark side following a loss to Hogan- the man he can’t seem to dethrone to get to the top.

    A promo for Wrestlemania 7 is shown. Stars and Stripes Forever!

    A video is shown documenting the attack The Mountie placed on British Bulldog a few weeks ago. We see The Mountie shocking Bulldog with his cattle prod. We then see clips from Bulldog’s special interview from his home vowing to end The Mountie and give him a taste of his own medicine.

    We cut to Gene Okurland standing by with British Bulldog. Okurland asks Bulldog how his rehabilitation has gone since that heinous attack by the hands of The Mountie. Bulldog says he has brought his back up to full strength and will have no trouble lifting The Mountie up in just a few short minutes. Bulldog tells The Mountie to get himself ready for the worst beating he has ever endured in his little pathetic life.



    The Mountie w/Jimmy Hart vs. British Bulldog

    Bulldog starts off hot with a barrage of offense on The Mountie. Mountie attempts to fall into the corner but Bulldog won’t let him, and drags him back into the center of the ring. Bulldog picks up Mountie and hits a vertical suplex. Bulldog quickly picks him back up and drops him right on his face in the corner! Mountie can’t get any offense in right now. Mountie finally catches a break when Jimmy Hart hops up on the apron and distracts Bulldog and the referee. Mountie then hits a knee strike to the injured back of Bulldog. Mountie begins to wear down Bulldog’s back with an abdominal stretch and some more knee strikes to the back. Mountie throws Bulldog off the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Bulldog ducks, flies back off the ropes and nearly takes The Mountie’s head off with a clothesline! Bulldog picks up Mountie in the corner, setting him up for the running powerslam. While The Mountie is on his back, Jimmy Hart hands him his cattle prod. Bulldog begins to run but quickly drops The Mountie and The Mountie shocks himself with the cattle prod! Mountie writhes around in pain as Bulldog kicks the cattle prod out of the ring. He picks Mountie back up and hits the running powerslam for the 3 count!

    Winner at 7:12- British Bulldog

    Bulldog celebrates in the ring as Jimmy Hart runs in to check on The Mountie. Bulldog turns around and looks at the crowd while pointing at Jimmy Hart. Jimmy Hart begs for him not to touch The Mountie. Bulldog kicks The Mountie out of the ring and points to Jimmy Hart. Bulldog lifts Hart over his shoulder and hits him with a running powerslam! Bulldog celebrates with the crowd as our announcers say he looked better than ever tonight.

    Lord Alfred Hayes is standing by in the back with Jake Roberts. Roberts is in no mood to talk. He tells Hayes what everyone witnessed here tonight is another travesty. Roberts should have won the match and he has no one to blame except himself. Hayes asks if he still stands behind the fans and everything that’s right in the WWF. Roberts looks at Hayes and laughs before walking off.

    Gene Okurland is with Macho King and Queen Sherri. He asks Macho King if he is worried that Queen Sherri will replace him if he loses tonight. Macho King tells Okurland to stop making up false claims because the last thing he is gonna’ do tonight is let Ultimate Warrior pin him. Sherri says Macho King knows what he has to do to keep her by his side, and the entire world is about to find out.



    WWF Championship
    ©Ultimate Warrior vs. Macho King Randy Savage w/Queen Sherri


    Macho King and Queen Sherri are out first. Savage has fire in his eyes and is locked in. Sherri walks by his side with a smug look on her face. Ultimate Warrior is out next to a huge ovation. He springs down to the ring and shakes the ropes while pointing at Savage. Savage doesn’t waste any time and attacks Warrior, throwing him into the ring. Warrior hasn’t even taken off his WWF title belt yet as Savage pounces on him. The referee pulls Savage off of him.

    The referee officially calls for the bell and the match is under way. Savage goes right back on the offensive, with hard punches and kicks on Warrior. Savage controls the beginning of the match, hitting Ultimate Warrior with everything in his arsenal. Queen Sherri applauds Savage’s performance thus far. Savage hops to the top turnbuckle and leaps off with a double axe handle. Warrior is down on the mat. Savage goes for the cover, but Warrior kicks out and tosses Savage off of him. Savage goes back on the offensive, wearing Warrior down with a bear hug. Warrior begins to fight out of it with elbows to Savage’s head. Warrior finally breaks the bear hug with a big headbutt on Savage!

    Warrior runs off the ropes and hits Savage with a shoulder block. Savage gets up and runs into another shoulder block by Warrior. Savage exits the ring as Queen Sherri talks things over. Warrior doesn’t waste any time and begins to chase after Savage. Sherri stands between Warrior and Savage, attempting to seduce Warrior. Warrior isn’t here to play any games and picks her up, moving her aside. This gives Savage enough time to regroup and when Warrior puts Sherri down Savage throws his head into the ring post. Savage rolls Warrior back into the ring. Savage climbs to the top once again but Warrior dives into the ropes and Savage falls crotch first on the top turnbuckle. Warrior then picks him up and hits a suplex. Warrior calls to the sky as he gets ready to press slam Savage. Warrior hoists up Savage, but Savage slips out of it and hits Warrior with a DDT. Both men are down.

    They both get up slowly and begin trading right hands, while they stagger to say on their feet. Savage goes for another right hand but Warrior ducks and hits him with a sidewalk slam! Warrior goes to press slam him again, but Sherri distracts him as she climbs up on the apron. Warrior walks over to her and Savage drills him in the back, and in the process Warrior knocks Sherri off the apron and to the floor. Savage with a rollup gets a near fall!

    Suddenly from the back, Jake Roberts walks down with a chair in hand. Roberts has a devilish grin on his face. Roberts has both Warrior and Savage’s attention. Instead of using the chair as a weapon, Roberts sets the chair up and sits at ringside. Warrior catches Savage off guard and drills him with a clothesline. Warrior flies off the ropes and goes for a big splash but Savage moves. Savage hits Warrior with a dropkick that connects right to the face. Warrior is out cold on the mat. Savage climbs to the top turnbuckle and connects with the Big Elbow! On the outside Roberts glances over at Sherri who nods her head. What is going on?!? Roberts quickly enters the ring and drills Warrior across the back with the steel chair! The referee immediately calls for the bell!

    Winner at 18:09 by Disqualification and STILL WWF World Champion- Ultimate Warrior


    Savage is irate. He had the match and the WWF Championship dead to rights. He comes after Roberts who drills him over the head with the chair! Roberts stands over both men as Sherri enters the ring and embraces Roberts. Sherri had set up Savage all along! Roberts holds the chair up high in the air and drills Warrior across the back once more. Sherri laughs and cheers him on as he drills Savage over the back again.

    HULK HOGAN emerges from the back and runs down to the ring. Hogan and Roberts trade blows before Hogan wrestles the chair away from him. Roberts slithers out of the ring as he and Sherri walk up the aisle way, holding hands. Inside the ring Hogan checks on both Savage and Warrior. Savage throws Hogan off to the side before falling out of the ring. Hogan helps Warrior to his feet and hands him his WWF title, before taking a long look at it. Hogan hands Warrior the belt and extends his hand to Warrior. Warrior looks down at his WWF title before looking back at Hulk Hogan. Warrior won’t shake Hogan’s hand! Hogan turns his back to Warrior and attempts to get the crowd behind him to shake his hand. Hogan turns back around and Warrior decks him with the WWF title belt! Warrior walks off as he continues to look down at his belt.

    Our announcers are at a loss for words as to what we just witnessed. Sherri has sided with Jake Roberts, who has officially turned to the dark side and turned his back on the fans, Savage has been double crossed, Hogan, who came out to help his future Wrestlemania 7 opponent, got attacked for his actions, and Ultimate Warrior has seemingly gone off the reservation!

    Royal Rumble 1991 ends with a shot of Hogan getting to his feet, staring down at Ultimate Warrior who holds his WWF title high in the air! THE ULTIMATE RE-MATCH HAS BEEN SET!

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    When did the Mountie debut in this BTB? Since in reality, he debuted at this PPV, I would imagine he would have had to have been around for a bit to not only get the cattle prod over, but to also build up the idea of someone causing Mountie to shock him.

    Some good build to some of the Wrestlmania 7 matches especially as it seems likely that Savage/Roberts will be a match. I wouldn't be surprise if DiBiase/Steamboat is a match as well based on DiBiase's elimination.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond


    The Royal Rumble brought excitement, action and betrayal to the Miami Arena this past Sunday. Many questions were answered while some more questions were raised as we begin our ascent on the Road to Wrestlemania 7.


    Hulk Hogan won the Royal Rumble match, giving him an automatic bid to the WWF Championship match at Wrestlemania 7 against reigning WWF Champion Ultimate Warrior. Hogan, showing no hard feelings towards Warrior, came out later in the night to help save him from an attack by the hands of Jake Roberts. Warrior responded by refusing to shake Hogan’s hand following the attack. He then drilled Hogan in the face with the WWF title belt before walking off.

    Warrior couldn’t be reached following the Royal Rumble event, and brushed off both Gene Okurland and Lord Alfred Hayes on his way to his car. No one knows what is going through Ultimate Warrior’s mind right now besides him, but we will eventually see the inevitable showdown between Warrior and Hogan in what is being billed as “The Ultimate Re-Match” set for Wrestlemania 7.

    Jake Roberts shocked the world when he officially completed his turn to the dark side, and picked up a new valet in Queen Sherri in the process. Roberts had stated all month leading up to the Royal Rumble that he was tired of playing second fiddle to the likes of Savage, Hogan and Warrior. In one fell swoop, he attempted to take out all three at the Royal Rumble. Roberts was a dangerous man before the conclusion of the Royal Rumble, and now with Queen Sherri by his side could be considered a lethal combination.

    Macho King Randy Savage has a lot of figuring out to do following Royal Rumble. Not only did he have his shot at the World title seemingly taken directly from him by Roberts, he was then betrayed by the woman who made him more aggressive in the first place. Savage is in a dark place right now following the Royal Rumble and will have a lot to say in the coming weeks regarding Roberts, Sherri and his quest for the WWF championship.

    Some news and notes from the Royal Rumble Match:
    The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan & Rick Martel all tied for the most eliminations in the match with 6.
    Rick Martel spent the most amount of time in the match at 55:49.
    Sam Houston spent the least amount of time in the match at 0:07.
    Hulk Hogan became the first repeat and back to back winner.
    The man who has drawn number 30, set to be the best spot to enter, has still never won the Royal Rumble Match.

    The Million Dollar Empire, led by Ted Dibiase, have said they have created a new list of guys they are ready to take out following the Royal Rumble. No names have been announced yet, but we have to believe Ricky Steamboat has to be at the top of that list following his elimination of Dibiase from the Royal Rumble.

    In another note on The Million Dollar Empire, Dibiase went on record following the event and said that Virgil needs to be held accountable for allowing Steamboat to eliminate him. Dibiase says Virgil needs to get his head in the game. Virgil hasn’t responded to Dibiase yet, but those close to the Empire have said the tension is beginning to grow between Virgil and Dibiase.

    Mr. Perfect was very close to going 2 for 2 on Sunday at the Royal Rumble. He was successful in defending his Intercontinental title but came up as the 2nd to last man eliminated from the Royal Rumble match. Mr. Perfect has now set his sights in finding an opponent to face for his Intercontinental title at Wrestlemania 7. Perfect has said he wants to find the “perfect” man to embarrass in front of the entire world at Wrestlemania 7. Possible opponents are not yet known at this time, but we will certainly find out who is ready to step up and challenge Mr. Perfect in the coming weeks.

    Demolition backed up their guarantee on beating The Hart Foundation for the Tag team titles at Royal Rumble. Waiting in the wings to be the first challengers are the Legion of Doom, who sent out a challenge to the winner of the tag team championship match minutes before the match started. In what would be billed as a “dream match”, Demolition vs. Legion of Doom has the entire wrestling world buzzing. A match between the two teams would be something fans around the world have waited for since Demolition debuted back in 1987.

    Rumors have been running rampant since the start of 1991 that Bret Hart would be breaking away from Jim Neidhart to pursue a singles career. The talk lasted throughout The Hart Foundation’s latest tag team title reign, and now with the titles gone, the writing is all but on the wall for Bret Hart. In a moment that signaled the end, Hart and Neidhart embraced in the ring following their loss to Demolition at the Royal Rumble.

    The Road to Wrestlemania 7 heats up in the coming weeks. The greatest time of the year is upon us, and the WWF will be at full tilt for the next few months.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond



    Wrestlemania 7 comes to us live on March 24, 1991 from the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. Dubbed with the theme “Stars and Stripes Forever,” Wrestlemania 7 is jam-packed with 10 exciting matches. Hulk Hogan looks to re-gain the WWF title while newcomers such as Bret Hart and the Legion of Doom look to get their first taste of championship gold. Macho Man Randy Savage looks to turn his career around and take out his arch-nemesis Jake Roberts. The Million Dollar Empire will be very active, with 3 separate matches. If there is any Pay-Per View you wouldn’t want to miss, it is Wrestlemania 7!

    THE ULTIMATE RE-MATCH
    Once Hulk Hogan eliminated Jake Roberts to win the Royal Rumble match, the stage was set for a blockbuster main event for Wrestlemania 7. Hogan received an automatic bid to wrestle the man who dethroned him at last year’s Wrestlemania-Ultimate Warrior. Later in the night Hogan did the right thing by saving Warrior from an attack by the hands of Jake Roberts. Warrior repaid Hogan by refusing to shake his hand, and hitting him over the head with the WWF title.

    The two are on a collision course for Wrestlemania 7 in a match that is being billed as “The Ultimate Re-Match.” Since the Rumble, Warrior has explained his actions by saying he was not being underhanded or dark, but he was just simply doing what he needed to do. Warrior said he still loves the fans and respects Hogan more than anybody in the WWF, but right now he is Warrior’s enemy and he will do whatever it takes to defend his WWF title. He will show no weakness or mercy for the man he beat last year.

    Hulk Hogan, in an exclusive interview with Vince McMahon, said he understands why Warrior didn’t shake his hand and drilled him in the head with the belt. Hogan said he has been at the top with everyone gunning for him before and understands the pressure that comes with being the guy. Hogan says he set out to win the Royal Rumble to prove he still has “it”, and now that he’s back in the WWF championship picture he will do whatever it takes to get that belt back not only for himself, but for the fans and for the great United States of America.

    Throughout February and early March, Hulk Hogan spent his time visiting soldiers overseas, becoming the epitome of an All-American Hero. Ultimate Warrior on the other hand has shown a new, more aggressive side to him in the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania 7. The two found themselves in the ring once more after they were forced to team up to take on Ted Dibiase & The Undertaker on an episode of Superstars. After winning by Countout when Dibiase decided he and Undertaker had enough and walked out, the two played into the fans with their signature poses. They then turned around and stared at each other face to face. Hogan, looking for a sign of mutual respect, held out his hand for Warrior to shake. Once again, Warrior left him hanging as he slapped Hogan’s hand away and walked to the back.

    Since that tag team match on Superstars, Hogan has surprisingly stood by his claim that he is just looking for respect and all he wanted was for Warrior to shake his hand. Warrior responded by saying he will never shake the hand of a man he will do battle with before it happens.

    The two men met face to face one final time at the Wrestlemania 7 press conference in Los Angeles, California. In front of a jam-packed audience of reporters and fans, the two set out to sign the dotted line to make their Wrestlemania 7 match official. After both men signed, the two got up from the respected chairs and had a stare down. Hogan, once more, held out his hand for Warrior to shake. Hogan held his hand out while repeatedly telling Warrior- “Just shake my hand brother!”

    Warrior began shaking with rage as he snapped the pen in his hand in half. He stared down at Hogan’s hand before looking at his WWF belt draped around his shoulder. Warrior then looked at Hogan and raised his title high in the air as he pumped his arms to the sky, growling and snarling at Hogan. Hogan stood stone still, not moving a muscle, staring a hole through Warrior. By the end of the press conference, both men needed to be separated and fire in both men’s eyes could set off a smoke alarm.
    The energy both these men bring will surely tear the house down at Wrestlemania 7, as both men could be considered the two biggest alpha males in the WWF. When it’s all said and done, the best man will win and lead the WWF into the future.

    BETRAYAL
    5 Minutes is all it took. In a span of 5 minutes, Macho King Randy Savage’s world was turned upside down. Not only did Jake Roberts cost him the WWF Championship, but his valet and girlfriend Queen Sherri double crossed him and joined forces with Jake Roberts. All throughout January, Queen Sherri gave Savage the ultimatum that if he didn’t get the WWF title around his waist, she would leave him. At the same time, Jake Roberts began cutting dark promos about how he was tired of being overlooked by the likes of Savage, Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. The writing was on the wall, but no one thought the stars would align like they did at the Royal Rumble when Roberts cost Savage the match then sided with Sherri.

    Since the Royal Rumble, Savage has been on a war path in an attempt to get his hands on both Jake Roberts and Queen Sherri. Their first interaction came when Sherri and Roberts cut an in-ring promo on Superstars following the Royal Rumble. Sherri told everyone who was listening that she would lead Jake Roberts to the promise land and help him cross Savage, Hogan and Warrior off his list. She also told Savage to lose the “King” title from his name because a king is a man who is supposed to produce inside and outside of the ring and Savage did neither. Since Savage did neither, he doesn’t deserve to be called King. Roberts then took it from there saying turning to the dark side enables him to do whatever he wants without the loser fans questioning his motive. Roberts then set out a challenge for Savage to a match at Wrestlemania 7.

    Savage responded the following week by cutting a heartfelt promo saying he is taking away the Macho King title and wants to go back to being called the Macho Man. He said it’s not because Sherri told him to, but it’s because his time as King was a joke and everyone knew it. He said he did what he never thought he would do-turn his back on the fans and his friends. He lost Elizabeth in the process, something he will never forgive himself for. The past 2 years have been the hardest he’s had to endure, and everything came to a head at the Royal Rumble. Savage says he is still eyeing the top prize in the WWF title, but for right now he’s put that to the side, because his problems with Roberts are too personal to let go. Savage accepted Robert’s challenge for Wrestlemania 7 and the match was made official.

    Throughout the ensuing weeks Roberts and Savage were at each other’s throats at every chance they got. The first instance happened when Savage was taking on Dino Bravo on Superstars. After finishing Bravo off with the top rope elbow drop and the pinfall, Savage climbed to the top turnbuckle to celebrate. Suddenly Roberts and Sherri made their way through the crowd, snuck behind Savage and Roberts threw him off the turnbuckle to the floor! Roberts then pounced on Savage, drilling him with hard fists while Sherri continued the attack by stomping on Savage with her high heels. Eventually, officials needed to pull Roberts and Sherri off, and Savage was left a bloody mess on the outside floor and helped to the back for examination. At this point, Savage’s status for Wrestlemania 7 was up in the air.

    The following week Sherri and Roberts cut another promo on Savage saying he is weak and hurt, and at this rate may not even make it to Wrestlemania 7. Sherri cut a little deeper into the wounds of Savage by asking him if he is going to run back to his little “tramp” Miss Elizabeth. Roberts questioned Savage’s heart as he told him he’s not cut out to fight with a man like Roberts.

    For a few weeks Savage wasn’t seen or heard from. His status for Wrestlemania 7 was still a big question mark, and it was said that WWF officials couldn’t even find Savage to check on his status. Finally, Savage broke his silence after being away for 2 weeks. Jake Roberts was taking on Texas Tornado. Just as Roberts was going for his DDT, commotion broke in the crowd. Soon, the camera panned over and everyone saw Macho Man running down through the crowd. Savage hopped over the guard rail and made a bee line for Roberts. Savage pounced on Roberts, taking him down to the mat before hitting him with a barrage of fists. Officials attempted to pull the two men apart, but Savage was like a rabid dog and wouldn’t let Roberts out of his grasp. Eventually, an entire team of officials separated the two.

    Savage had the final say, in a promo the week before Wrestlemania 7. Savage talked about his life and how when things went bad in the past, he dug in and crawled out of the hole. He’s said it 100 times before and he will say it again- the cream always rises to the top! This time is no different. He talked about what he’s went through since January and how he will never be the same until he takes out Roberts and finishes him at Wrestlemania 7. Savage ends the promo by telling Roberts to “tape up your fists, because our match has just become a No Disqualifications Match!” With the announcement from Savage that his match with Roberts will now be a No DQ Match, the wrestling world is buzzing at the thought of these two fighting with virtually no rules. We do know this one will be a match you don’t want to miss!

    TURNING ON THE USA
    Sgt. Slaughter was always seen as a clean cut, no nonsense American Hero throughout the 80’s. When he returned to the WWF in August of 1990, something was off about his return. He didn’t mention the USA, nor the fans. He came back and immediately denounced America. Since then, he has voiced his displeasures with the way things are going in the world right now. Slaughter has grown increasingly negative over the past month, and took out his aggression on his former friend Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

    The two were scheduled to team up to take on Power and Glory on an episode of Prime Time Wrestling. Slaughter seemed unenthused with the match and refused to tag in. Eventually, Slaughter hopped off the apron and watched from the floor as Hercules and Roma took down Duggan and ultimately won the match. After the match was over, Slaughter entered the ring and berated Duggan for being a fake American hero. At the same time, Slaughter began insulting the fans saying they were all spoiled little brats who don’t know what the real world is like. Duggan tried to talk things out with Slaughter, but he was met with a right hand by Slaughter that knocked Duggan to the ground. Slaughter then continued his assault by breaking Duggan’s 2X4 over his back. Slaughter then brought out The Iron Sheik, and said he would be his manager moving forward.

    Duggan, knowing the true Sgt. Slaughter would never attack a fellow American brother, called out Slaughter the following week to give him a second chance. Slaughter came out and responded by beating down Duggan once more, this time with the help of the Iron Sheik. Roddy Piper busted onto the scene to save Duggan from the attack.

    Shortly thereafter, the match was made for Wrestlemania 7 pitting Sgt. Slaughter against Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Duggan didn’t want it to get to this point, but after 2 brutal attacks he said he has no choice but to teach Slaughter a lesson at Wrestlemania 7. Roddy Piper will be in Duggan’s corner, to assure the sneaky Iron Sheik won’t get involved in any way.

    THE MILLION DOLLAR EMPIRE TAKES ON THE WWF
    Once Dibiase announced The Warlord and The Undertaker as his inaugural members of The Million Dollar Empire, they began to take the WWF by storm. Leading up to the Royal Rumble they were unstoppable and picked up numerous wins on television. Then the Royal Rumble came and it was clearly evident that The Empire failed its first big test. Not only did all three men get eliminated from the Royal Rumble match, but Dibiase was seen verbally berating Virgil for letting Steamboat eliminate him from the match after the show was over.

    Following the Royal Rumble, Dibiase and co. decided to create a list of WWF superstars they wanted to take out. At the top of that list was Ricky Steamboat. The Empire made it known it wasn’t messing around when they viciously attacked Steamboat on an episode of Superstars. The Empire would have done more damage if it weren’t for Big Bossman and British Bulldog running down to save Steamboat.

    The Empire’s list then grew to 3 men with the addition of Bulldog and Bossman. Bulldog and Bossman didn’t back down, and attacked The Undertaker and The Warlord on The Brother Love show the following week. Dibiase seemingly got away from the raucous when he attempted to escape through the side. When he turned around he walked right into a spinning heel kick from Ricky Steamboat. Steamboat then beat down on Dibiase until Virgil came in and decked Steamboat. Steamboat, Bulldog and Bossman then chased The Empire all the way through the backstage area until The Empire all hopped into a waiting limo and sped off.

    The following week it was announced that 3 separate matches were made for Wrestlemania 7. Ted Dibiase would face Ricky Steamboat, The Undertaker would take on British Bulldog, and The Warlord would square off against the Big Bossman. Once the news was announced, Dibiase began devising a plan to flip Big Bossman to The Empire. Bossman had just finished up beating The Mountie on an episode of Superstars the week before Wrestlemania 7 when Dibiase and Virgil walked down, with Virgil holding a briefcase full of cash. Dibiase offered Bossman a spot in The Empire as their official Bodyguard. Bossman shook hands with Dibiase, much to the surprise of the fans. This brought out Ricky Steamboat and British Bulldog, who were shocked that Bossman had accepted the deal. Virgil handed Bossman the briefcase full of cash. Bossman held it up in the air before looking down at it. Dibiase and Virgil headed to exit the ring and Bossman drilled Dibiase with the briefcase. Steamboat and Bulldog then began beating down on Virgil and Dibiase until The Undertaker and The Warlord ran down to help out. The episode of Superstars ended with all six men brawling in the ring, up the aisle, and through the crowd.

    Following the melee on Superstars, Dibiase was irate that Bossman had double crossed him and stole a large chunk of money. Looking to take is frustration out on someone, he once again singled out Virgil for not being more of a help. Dibiase berated Virgil and told him he is supposed to have his back, no matter what the circumstances are. As Dibiase continued to berate Virgil, he became increasingly agitated while he stood there, rubbing his hands back and forth while staring a hole through Dibiase. Dibiase then warned Virgil that if he didn’t get his head in the game by Wrestlemania 7, Dibiase would fire him in front of the entire world.

    At the Wrestlemania 7 press conference, Dibiase took the podium and declared that not only would The Empire sweep at Wrestlemania 7, they would end the careers of all three men. When asked about the status of Virgil moving forward, Dibiase shook off the question and stated that all Empire personal decisions would be made in house, and he wouldn’t be telling anyone anything. Another reporter asked Dibiase if he was beginning to feel the pressure of maintaining a high class stable such as The Empire. Dibiase looked at the reporter and before he could answer Brother Love-the president of Media Ventures of The Million Dollar Empire, cut off Dibiase and abruptly ended the interview.

    On the other side, Steamboat, Bulldog and Bossman are as confident as ever heading into Wrestlemania 7. All three know the odds are stacked against them, but if any 3 superstars can overcome the odds it is them. Steamboat, a surprise return in the Royal Rumble match, made it clear that he came back to the WWF to set his sights on championship gold. Running through Ted Dibiase will be his first true test as he looks to climb up the ladder.

    The Big Bossman has a terrific opportunity to make a name for himself with a big win over The Warlord. Seen by most as the weak link of The Empire, Warlord will also be looking to get a win and show he belongs in The Empire.

    British Bulldog just may have the toughest task at Wrestlemania 7. The Undertaker is seemingly unknown, as there are only a handful of matches for Bulldog to calculate a scouting report. If any man has the brute strength to combat the massive size and strength of The Undertaker, it is British Bulldog.

    THE DREAM BECOMES A REALITY
    Ever since Demolition debuted at the end of 1987, they have drawn numerous comparisons to the Legion of Doom. Many wrestling fans and magazines had always wondered who would win the fantasy dream match between Demolition and LOD. When the Legion of Doom signed with the WWF in 1990, that fantasy dream match was closer than ever to happening.

    Fans had to wait a few more months, but the stars aligned at the Royal Rumble. First, LOD came out onto the stage to issue a challenge. LOD challenged the winner of the Tag Team Championship match between The Hart Foundation and Demolition. Shortly thereafter, Demolition defeated The Hart Foundation to become new Tag Team champions, and the speculations that they would now defend against Legion of Doom were more apparent than ever.

    LOD fired the first shot on the Superstars after Royal Rumble. LOD came out for another interview with Gene Okurland. They said now that Demolition are the tag team champions, that means they are the next on LOD’s war path. Demolition wouldn’t let this one go quietly, as they appeared on stage to confront LOD. The crowd was at fever pitch as the two teams stared down. Smash said they know what everyone wants, and Demolition never backs down from a challenge, so LOD is on for Wrestlemania 7!

    WWF President Jack Tunney officially announced Demolition vs. Legion of Doom for the Tag Team titles at Wrestlemania 7, and the fans that have waited for years for this match now will get it at Wrestlemania 7. In the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania 7 following Tunney’s match announcement, these two needed to be kept separated so they would both stay in one piece until the big match.

    At the end of February, LOD were fighting a local team on Superstars. After finishing them off with the Doomsday Device, Hawk and Animal posed on the top turnbuckle. They stared into the crowd and up the aisle where they saw Smash and Crush, holding their tag titles high in the air. LOD let this one go, but Animal declared if Demolition came into their vicinity again, they would think twice about knocking them out.

    Demolition didn’t listen to Animal, and two weeks later the same scene played out. LOD just finished off Earthquake and Dino Bravo when up in the aisle way Smash and Crush were seen standing tall. This time, Demolition made their way into the ringside area and climbed up onto the apron. LOD charged and Animal ended up flying through the ropes, tackling Crush to the ground. Hawk and Smash traded blows and the two teams fought up the aisle way. No team of officials wanted to get in between this, so a team of local policemen broke up the brawl. The brawl left Hawk with a black eye, while Crush was seen bleeding from his nose and mouth.

    WWF President Jack Tunney issued an order that if LOD and Demolition got into another altercation before Wrestlemania 7, the match would be called off. The two traded barbs in promos where LOD promised a blood bath, while Demolition said for there to be 2 stretchers present because LOD wouldn’t be walking out of Wrestlemania 7!

    In a match pitting the top two alpha teams in the WWF against each other on the biggest stage for the biggest prize, this one will be a knock down drag out fight. Both teams have something to prove here, and we hope there are enough security guards in Los Angeles to pull these two apart if things get out of hand.

    THE PERFECT OPPONENT
    Mr. Perfect has ruled the Intercontinental title division for the better part of the last year. In that time span he has taken on and beaten virtually everyone that has crossed his path. His only hiccup was losing the Intercontinental title to Texas Tornado at Summerslam 1990, but he shortly re-gained it a few months later. In his latest run as champion he has been unstoppable, putting in his best work in the WWF to date.

    After defeating Texas Tornado at the Royal Rumble, Mr. Perfect was hoping for a 2 for 2 night, but came up short after making it to the final 3 in the Royal Rumble match. After the Royal Rumble, Perfect shifted his focus back to his Intercontinental title while searching for the “Perfect Opponent” to embarrass in front of the world at Wrestlemania 7. On an episode of Superstars in early February, Perfect came out to announce his opponent. Perfect said he searched long and hard and came up with the perfect man to defend it against- no one! Perfect said no one is on his level therefore no one deserves a shot at his title.

    Suddenly Bret Hart made his way down to the ring. Hart said he came out here tonight to step up and challenge Perfect at Wrestlemania 7! Perfect initially laughed at Hart’s challenge, but then thought about it. Perfect said Hart isn’t a singles wrestler and hasn’t been properly introduced to the Intercontinental title division, so what better way that for Perfect to embarrass him in front of the world? Perfect told everyone he found his perfect opponent, before hitting Hart with a cheap shot by kicking in the gut before drilling him with a right hand.

    In the weeks leading up to their Wrestlemania 7 match, Perfect set out to give Hart “pointers” in his matches. Bret Hart would wrestle and Perfect would sit at ringside with a notepad in hand, jotting down ideas about Bret Hart’s matches. After the matches were over, Perfect would hand Hart his sheet of paper. Each week the paper said something different. Perfect didn’t write much, other than a word like “retire” or “find another profession” and another great one in “don’t show up to Wrestlemania 7.”

    Hart responded by ripping up the papers each time. Hart reached his boiling point on the Superstars before Wrestlemania 7. Hart was in another singles match, this time against Haku. Hart had his work cut out for him but eventually forced Haku to tap out. Following the match Mr. Perfect hopped into the ring to hand Hart another sheet of paper, but Hart wasn’t so nice this time. As Perfect went to hand Hart the paper, Hart popped him with a double leg take down and began to pounce on Perfect with a barrage of fists. Hart then turned Perfect over and locked him in the Sharpshooter! The fans went crazy as Hart refused to let go. Perfect screamed in pain as he tapped out. Eventually, Hart broke the hold before getting his hands on the Intercontinental title. Hart held the title in his hands before tossing it down on the fallen Perfect.

    Once this match was made official, it was met with lot of intrigue and buzz around it. Bret Hart has been known to be a budding superstar for quite some time, and gets his first shot at singles gold on the biggest stage of them all. The only problem? He is going up against the pound-for-pound best wrestler in the WWF and quite possibly the wrestling world today. If Hart were to win, it would be one of the biggest upsets in WWF history. Perfect will be ready for anything and everything, as he attempts to prolong his title reign.

    MAKING THEIR MARK
    Set for singles action at Wrestlemania 7, “The Model” Rick Martel will square off against the Texas Tornado. Martel is fresh off his record 55 minute stay in the Royal Rumble match. Texas Tornado is looking to get back into the win column after Mr. Perfect beat him at the Royal Rumble. Both men are looking to make their mark, as a win would catapult either man into the Intercontinental title picture moving forward.

    TIME TO GET NASTY
    WWF President Jack Tunney announced The Nasty Boys would face The Rockers at Wrestlemania 7.
    The Nasty Boys were introduced to the WWF in mid-January by their manager Jimmy Hart. Since their highly touted debut, they have gone undefeated in tag team action. With Jimmy Hart at ringside, they are a force to be reckon with. The Rockers have been on a hot streak as of late, racking up victories left and right. These two teams meet at Wrestlemania 7 with a chance to shoot up the tag team division rankings, while leaving a mark on the grandest stage of them all.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    i really enjoy the way u do your shows. they are not hard to follow and while i was born in 91, my family got all the wwf ppvs from this time period so i watched them growing up. I am looking forward to Mania especially Perfect and Hart. I was hoping that the time thing would be more of a factor with Perfect after what happened with the match at Rumble with Tornado. I like that you went realistic with Hogan winning and the rematch for the belt will be really good. Macho and Roberts will be really good as well.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    I feel really conflicted on the Perfect/Hart match. I love aspects of it, but also hate others. The problem is that it's the right match, but the wrong time. You dismissed the #1 tag team of 1990 in favor of losing out on Neidhart and putting Bret in a big Wrestlemania match before he has any singles star power. And yet, the lack of star power is played up nicely with the actual angle of the program with Perfect dismissing him and playing up the fact that Bret is the massive underdog in the match. Ultimately, there's a reason why the WWE kept the Hart Foundation together until Wrestlemania and then used the five months between Wrestlemania and Summerslam to build Bret up as an underdog challenger to Perfect's title.

    Jim, thanks for reading. I was torn when booking the Hart/Perfect angle as I wanted to wait before putting the match on, but I have other plans in store moving forward. I needed to get the titles off HF to set up Demolition/LOD for WM7 so instead of booking HF in a lower card tag match at WM7, I decided to jump the gun on Bret Hart early. From a historical perspective regarding the project, things such as timing of wrestlers signing/debuting/leaving and when guys began getting pushed or written off will be in the ballpark as to when it really did happen, but I plan on putting my own twist on things.

    Re: WWF- 1991 and Beyond

    Wow, I decided to dive into this booker because it's a rare time period and isn't terribly long yet, and I am not disappointed. Early 90s WWF is not my specialty but I realize it's a critical time in history and tons of the greatest of all time are at your disposal. The most intriguing thing to me will be how you develop characters and what unique match ups and/or alliances you might put together. On another note I love the format, easy to read and follow, and it helps advance through the timeline a little faster while taking nothing away from the actual stories. I love your Rumble presentation, I think it was put together really nicely, definitely one of the easiest reading Rumbles I've seen. Your Mania card looks killer, especially the marquee matches and Demolition vs. LOD. I'll be back for more I can guarantee that.

    WRESTLEMANIA 7 RESULTS
    MARCH 24, 1991
    LOS ANGELES MEMORIAL SPORTS ARENA- LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA


    "STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER!"

    Wrestlemania 7 starts off with a shot of 17,000 fans inside the LA Sports Arena going crazy. The entire arena is decked out in red, white and blue. We then cut to a video narrated by Vince McMahon going through tonight’s stacked card.

    Howard Finkel is standing in the ring and welcomes everybody to Wrestlemania 7. He then brings out Willie Nelson to sing his rendition of America the Beautiful. After Willie is finished, the crowd breaks out in a huge “USA!” chant. We cut to a special message from Vince McMahon to the fans.

    Vince McMahon is standing with a USA flag in the back drop. “Hello, and welcome to Wrestlemania 7. I’d like to start out by saying that tonight is about more than the WWF. Wrestlemania 7 is a spectacle in itself and wouldn’t be possible without you-the fans’ support. More importantly, tonight is about the brave men and women of the military that sacrifice their lives day in and day out for all of us to enjoy such a show. Again, thank you to the troops, the fans in the arena, and the millions watching at home. Now let’s get ready for Wrestlemania 7! God Bless America!”

    We then go down to our announcers for tonight, Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan. Both men welcome us to Wrestlemania 7 and talk about what a historic night it’s going to be for the WWF. Without further ado, let’s go down to the ring for some Wrestlemania 7 action!

    The Nasty Boys are out first with their manager Jimmy Hart. Hart is carrying his trusty megaphone as the fans boo Knobbs and Saggs. Out next are The Rockers, who get a tremendous ovation. Michaels and Jannetty run down the aisle way while slapping the fans hands. We are ready for our opening bout!



    The Rockers vs. The Nasty Boys

    Knobbs and Jannetty start out the match. The two lock up and Knobbs pushes Jannetty into the corner. He hits him with an elbow to the head as the referee commands him to get out of the corner. Knobbs waits for Jannetty to get out of the corner and knees him in the gut. Knobbs has the upper hand early. Knobbs bounces Jannetty off the ropes and hits a big body slam for a 2 count. Knobbs drags Jannetty over to his corner and tags in Saggs. Saggs with a headbutt. Saggs tosses Jannetty into the opposite corner but Jannetty hops up onto the turnbuckles and flies off with a cross body on Saggs! Jannetty gets up quickly and hits a dropkick. Jannetty gets up once more and hits another dropkick! Saggs rolls out of the ring as Jimmy Hart coaches him up at ringside. Jannetty tags in Michaels.

    Michaels wastes no time, and flies off the ropes before hitting a dropkick on Saggs that knocks him off the apron and to the floor! Knobbs runs in and Michaels connects with a drop toe hold. Michaels’ fast paced style is too much for the Nasty Boys as he runs circles around them. Michaels lifts up Saggs and hits a vertical suplex for a 2 count. Saggs slides over and tags in Knobbs. Michaels lunges at Knobbs but misses and Knobbs connects with a big clothesline. Knobbs slows down the pace with a head lock on Michaels. Michaels wrestles out of the headlock by bouncing Knobbs off the ropes but Knobbs comes back with a flying shoulder block! Knobbs covers but only gets 2. Knobbs with the quick tag back to Saggs. Saggs stands in the corner with his arm raised as Knobbs smashes Michaels’ head into Saggs arm pit! Michaels hits the mat as the Nasty Boys share a laugh.

    The Nasty Boys have now cut the ring in half, not allowing Michaels to make the hot tag to his partner Marty Jannetty. Knobbs holds Michaels arms back from the outside while Saggs punches away on the body of Michaels. Saggs then grabs a hold of Michaels’ head and hits a running bulldog. Saggs gets up and taunts Jannetty. While Saggs taunts Jannetty, Michaels gains his strength and hits Saggs with a huge superkick. Michaels crawls over to the corner to make the tag. Saggs tags in Knobbs who sprints to catch Michaels but is too slow and Michaels tags in Jannetty! Jannetty rushes in and clotheslines Knobbs. He runs over and knocks Saggs off the apron. He then jumps to the top turnbuckle and flies off with a top rope missile dropkick! Jannetty is on fire! Jannetty turns around and runs into a huge big boot from Knobbs! Knobbs then picks him up and hits a big sidewalk slam. Knobbs slows the pace down once more with a chinlock on Jannetty. He then shifts into a sleeper hold, and Jannetty begins to fade. The crowd is behind Jannetty as he tries to power out of it.

    The referee raises Jannetty’s arm twice and the third time he won’t let it down and begins to power out of it. Jannetty forces Knobbs into his corner and stretches his arms out and tags in Michaels. Michaels hops to the top turnbuckle and jumps off. Jannetty ducks and Michaels hits a cross body on Knobbs! Jannetty runs over and kicks Saggs off the apron. Jimmy Hart rushes the ring apron and is met with a double clothesline from both Rockers that knocks him to the floor! The Rockers turn around and hit double missile dropkicks on Knobbs. Jannetty superkicks Knobbs who then runs into a superkick from Michaels! They signal for the end as Jannetty climbs to the top turnbuckle. Michaels lifts up Knobbs in the suplex position. Jannetty flies off with a cross body as they connect with the Rocker Plex! Michaels hooks the leg and gets the 3 count!

    Winners at 12:34- The Rockers

    The referee raises The Rockers’ hands as the crowd is on their feet, applauding the team. Michaels and Jannetty share a huge before slapping the fans hands while they walk back up the aisle way.

    Sean Mooney is with “The Model” Rick Martel. Mooney asks him his thoughts on his upcoming match with the Texas Tornado. “First off, this Texas Tornado, he has no fashion sense. Those tassels on his boots? Atrocious. After I teach him a few things in the ring about wrestling, I’ll give him so fashion tips.” Martel then looks at Mooney, before scoffing at him. “And you, Sean Mooney, did you get dressed in the dark today? You need to look less like you, and more like me!” Martel poses for the camera before spraying his bottle of arrogance high in the air, walking off.

Mooney says he is here with Macho Man on the verge of an historic match with Roberts. “JAKE ROBERTS! You think you can intimidate the Macho Man with your dark language and morbid lines? Na-uh. Oh I’m mad Sean Mooney, the angriest I’ve ever been in my life. These past few months have taken a toll on the Macho Man no doubt about it, but that all ends tonight. I hope your fists are taped and you bring your fighting boots Roberts, because this isn’t gonna’ be no picnic uh-huh. I’m out for blood tonight, and I’ve heard that snake blood is the sweetest kind around! DIG IT!"

    Savage rushes off the interview set as we head down to our announcers. Heenan says Roberts will mop the floor with Savage while Monsoon thinks Savage has a lot of pent up anger he will release here tonight.

    We cut to a camera shot in the crowd where we see Miss Elizabeth sitting at ringside, directly in the middle of the first row. She has a worried look on her face, and our announcers bring up that we haven’t seen Liz in quite some time.

    Jake Roberts’ music hits as the fans begin to boo. Roberts slowly walks to the ring with Sherri by his side. Roberts is without his snake tonight. Roberts slithers into the ring and sits in the corner, waiting for his arch nemesis to enter.

    Macho Man’s music hits and the fans are on their feet. Out comes Macho Man, dressed in silver and blue. Savage gets a thunderous ovation from the crowd. He walks by Miss Elizabeth at ringside and the two share a moment, staring at each other before Savage snaps out of it and hops into the ring.



    No Disqualifications Match
    “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. Jake Roberts w/Sherri


    Roberts continues to sit in the corner as Macho Man takes off his entrance outfit. Savage then charges at Roberts who gets up at the perfect moment and drills Savage with a big boot, and we are under way. The referee has been instructed to let these guys go, so he is really just there to count a pinfall or score a submission attempt. Roberts and Savage begin to throw haymakers at each other. The crowd gets to their feet to cheer on the action as Roberts and Savage attempt to knock each other down. Roberts sends Savage off the ropes and hits him with a clothesline. Roberts begins to stomp on Savage. Roberts picks him up by the hair and smashes his face into the turnbuckle. Roberts turns Savage around and hits him with knife edge chops. Savage responds by hitting Roberts with an uppercut each time Roberts hits him with a knife edge chop. Roberts then grabs Savage’s head and begins biting down on it! Heenan says now Savage is snake bit for the rest of the match. Savage rakes Roberts’ eyes to get him off.

    Savage tries to walk off the pain from the bite of Roberts, and Roberts kicks his legs out from underneath him. Sherri begins to hold the bottom rope over Savage’s throat, choking him in the process. Roberts steps on the rope for added leverage. Savage kicks his legs in the air and finally manages to get out of it. Savage is down and out as Roberts stands over him, slapping him in the face, taunting him.

Roberts hops off the apron and hits Savage with a double axe handle. Roberts smashes Savage’s head off the apron, and Savage flies back to the ground. Roberts begins punching Savage right in front of Miss Elizabeth, sitting in the first row. She winces with each punch landed. Sherri runs over and begins to shout at her. Elizabeth just sits there, taking it all in.

    Roberts goes to throw Savage head first into the ring post but Savage reverses it and throws Roberts right into it! Savage gets up quickly to his feet and pounces on Roberts. Savage has found his second wind now, and begins beating Roberts down with hard right hands. Savage puts Roberts on the apron and then hops into the ring. Savage hooks Roberts and suplexes him back into the ring. Savage takes control with a scoop slam followed kicks to Roberts’ head. Roberts tries to slide into the corner and manages to do so. Savage follows him and begins stomping him out in the corner. Savage then hops off the ropes and comes back down with a dropkick to Roberts in the corner! Savage hooks the leg and only gets 2. Savage climbs to the top turnbuckle and hops off hitting Roberts with a double axe handle. Savage climbs back up to the top turnbuckle, signaling for the elbow drop, until Sherri hops up on the apron and distracts him. This gives Roberts enough time to get up and push Savage off the top and he comes crashing down to the outside floor!

    Roberts smiles as he exits the ring and hits Savage with another right hand. Savage attempts to fight back, hitting Roberts with punches and kicks. Roberts falls into the timekeepers table, and slyly picks up the bell without Savage noticing. Savage goes for another punch but Roberts swings the bell around and cracks Savage over the head with it! Savage falls to the ground as Roberts takes the bell and hits him again in the head while Savage lies on the floor! Savage is now busted open. Roberts drags Savage to the other side of the ringside area and holds Savage’s head up for Miss Elizabeth to see. She holds her hands over her face, trying hard not to look, and begins to tear up. Roberts then goes to chuck Savage into the steel ring steps but Savage reverses and Roberts hits the steps knees first then flies over the top of them. Savage grabs a chair at ringside and goes over and drills Roberts across the back! Savage throws the chair into the ring and then slides Roberts in.

    Savage drills Roberts over the back with the chair once more. Savage signals for the end and quickly hops to the top turnbuckle. Savage flies off and connects with the Elbow Drop! Savage hooks the leg but Roberts kicks out at the last second! Savage can’t believe it. Savage kicks Roberts a few more times before hopping back to the top turnbuckle. Savage holds his hands in the air, but looks over to the commotion at ringside. The camera pans to ringside where we see Sherri dragging Liz by the hair over the guard rail.

Savage hoists her up on his shoulder and points to the crowd. All is right in the world again!

    Savage and Elizabeth walk up the aisle way holding hands, while Heenan is disgusted at what we just witnessed. Monsoon says we just witnessed a classic moment in the history of Wrestlemania, one that will live forever. Savage may have lost the battle, but his war with Roberts is far from over!

    Sean Mooney is standing by inside The Million Dollar Empire’s dressing room. They are all popping champagne bottles.

Piper holds up the fallen Slaughter and Willie Nelson decks him with a right hand! Duggan, Piper and Nelson celebrate while Duggan flies the American flag high in the air! What a Wrestlemania moment!

    We shift focus as we begin seeing photo stills of Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. Our announcers play up our main event, which is coming up next!

    Gene Okurland is standing by with Hulk Hogan. Hogan stands there, as massive as ever, flexing his 24 inch pythons. He is sporting an American flag bandana. Just moments away from the match being billed as “The Ultimate Re-Match,” Okurland asks Hogan what he’s feeling right now. “Well you know something Mean Gene, tonight isn’t just about me brother. Tonight is about all the brave and women fighting overseas, keeping us safe. And let’s get one thing straight. The Ultimate Warrior and I don’t have any beef brother, it’s just survival of the fittest at the top of the food chain right now, it’s sink or swim dude. There is only room for one of us at the top, and tonight I’m gonna’ show all my Hulkamaniacs that when you train, say your prayers, eat your vitamins, be true to yourself and true to your country, that anything is possible brother!” Hogan lets out a grunt as he flexes for the camera. Okurland sends it back down to ringside.

    Hulk Hogan’s music hits and he gets surely the biggest ovation of the night. Hogan points to the crowd before strutting down the aisle way. He hops into the ring and rips his shirt off, before flexing. The crowd eats this up and loves every bit of it.

    Ultimate Warrior’s music hits next and out he comes, sprinting down to the ring. Warrior gets a mixed reaction, but mostly cheers. It’s hard for the fans to pick a side in this one, but with the events leading up to the match it is clear they favor Hogan more than Warrior. Warrior shakes the ropes and calls to the sky as he stares a hole through Hogan.

    The referee calls for the bell and the match starts. Hogan begins by putting out his hand. Warrior continues to stare a hole through Hogan. Warrior slaps Hogan’s hand out of the way and tackles him to the mat. Warrior and Hogan begin throwing haymakers at each other. Heenan and Monsoon quickly point out that we have never seen this side to either man before, so you know that this match means everything to both guys. Neither man gets the upper hand with the punches thrown and they stare each other down. Hogan calls for a test of strength. Warrior obliges and the two men lock hands. It is a stalemate as they meet right in the middle, until Warrior kicks Hogan in the mid-section. Warrior backs Hogan into the corner where he thrusts his shoulder into Hogan’s ribcage. Warrior then takes Hogan and slams him down on the mat. Warrior runs off the ropes and Hogan hops up, hitting Warrior with a clothesline.

    Hogan now takes control of the match. The crowd is behind him at every turn. Hogan picks up Warrior and slams him to the mat. Hogan goes for a cover but Warrior kicks out. Hogan goes for another clothesline but Warrior ducks and flies back off the ropes with a shoulder block. Warrior lifts Hogan high in the air and dumps him face first into the corner on the turnbuckles. Warrior then hits a hip toss on Hogan. Warrior wears down Hogan with hard hammer fists to Hogan’s neck and back. Hogan fights back with elbows and forearms to Warrior. Warrior sends Hogan off the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Hogan ducks. Hogan comes flying back and both men hit each other with clotheslines at the same time!

    Both men are down on the mat. The referee begins to count. Both men are on their feet by the 8 count. Warrior decks Hogan with another right hand and Hogan falls hard to the mat! Warrior then calls to the sky. He picks up Hogan and hits the Power Press Slam! Warrior then runs off the ropes and goes for the Big Splash but Hogan ducks and begins Hulking up! Warrior begins punching Hogan but to no avail! Hogan gains more strength with each punch Warrior throws! Hogan throws three punches of his own before sending Warrior off the ropes. Warrior runs right into the Big Boot by Hogan! Hogan runs off the ropes and hits the Leg Drop! The crowd is about to blow the roof off the stadium. Hogan hooks Warrior’s legs! 1…2…3! HOGAN WINS THE WWF TITLE!

    Winner at 11:05 and NEW WWF CHAMPION- Hulk Hogan

    The crowd erupts for Hogan as his music starts to play. The referee hands him his newly won WWF title as he stares at it and begins to cry. He grabs an American flag that was placed at ringside and waves it high through the air. Hogan puts the flag down and looks over at Warrior, who is holding his neck, just coming to. Warrior gets to his feet before standing face to face once more with Hogan. Hogan extends his hand out. Warrior looks down, before saying something to Hogan. Warrior FINALLY shakes Hogan’s hand!

The final scene of Wrestlemania 7 sees Warrior and Hogan waving the American flag high in the air as our announcers tell us this was a perfect ending to a monumental night. They sign off before Monsoon tells everyone “Good night, and God Bless America!"

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    WrestleMania VII review:

    --- Woof. This is a massive event. Fitting. Here goes nothing…
    --- Willie Nelson is the GOAT… way to embrace that patriotic theme from the top. I smell a Hogan victory.
    --- Good rub for The Rockers. As you've already decided to set off Bret’s singles career, I wonder if you'll be fast tracking Michaels as well?
    --- The interview set up is great, why don't they still do this? Anyways I really liked Martel’s dialogue in this. Honestly, Martel is one of those guys I always wished had done more in his career. He was like a discount Rick Rude, in a good way. Him defeating The Texas Tornado bodes well for him getting a shot at the IC title in the future.
    --- Tough start for DiBiase’s empire. Like that you kept the Warlord/Bossman encounter short because anything more than 8 minutes with these two would be a guaranteed bore.
    --- Perfect’s mic work is gold. Too bad he's about to lose his title 😂 I think Hart was destined to win this match, so good call. I kinda hope this feud carries on for a little while though, these two could put on some instant classics for sure. And I think both guys epitomize their roles perfectly so it's a top heel vs a top face with plenty of fan investment. The apron spot was cool and definitely a dangerous move to pull out there. This match felt like a show stealer.
    --- Nice WM debut for Taker that he made him look like a threat to anybody on the roster. Beating the Bulldog will definitely look better on his resume 27 years from now than a past-his-prime Snuka.
    --- Convincing victory for LOD, even more lopsided than I could have expected. If they beat Demolition with that much ease, who in the WWF stands a chance?
    --- Nicely booked bout between DiBiase and Steamboat, you really had me guessing if Virgil was gonna stay loyal to DiBiase’s empire, kudos.
    --- I think the way you executed the Savage/Roberts match was excellent, better than Savage/Warrior imo.
    --- Slaughter vs Duggan was nice to break up the action between the last bout and the main event. This is honestly a better use of Slaughter than being in the main event. That post match action would have got huge pops for sure.
    --- The main event was appropriate. Good call on setting up this rematch. The match was short by most standard but it makes sense. Both of these guys finish most of their opponents in about 3 minutes so an 11 minute match is like a marathon with these two. Good result though I must say Hulk Hogan As WWF Champion will only keep me interested for so long.
    --- All in all, awesome show. It just felt like a WrestleMania. So that's always a plus. It had plenty if big moments and memorable matches and the card was easily superior to the real WM VII. Can't wait to see what comes next bro, keep it up.

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Good looking WrestleMania, shame Perfect lost the Intercontinental Championship though. I think Roberts winning was also a smart idea, instead of what WWE really did in late '91 - early '92 and never giving Roberts a solid victory over Savage.

    Undertaker's 1-0 starts off solid with what would have been a pretty alright match against Bulldog.

    Sign me up to this one.

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    The Big Boss Man is easily the biggest villain in the WWE now. The asshole makes his own mother pay in order to talk to him on the WWE Hotline! I'm sure The Warlord doesn't make his momma pay to talk to him.

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Just a quick thought on Wrestlemania.

    All the results went pretty much as you would expect them to. Just wanted to commend you on your interview segments. Every single one was short but smooth and sweet, I could really picture each person saying what was said. Whether that's the characters being a lot easier to identify with or not you've still done an awesome job with that.

    Was hoping Bossman would be the one to save Dibiase against Steamboat. I can see Dibiase pushing himself into contention for the World Title in the coming months, especially with Savage still tied up with Roberts. Would love for you to take Warrior into a feud with Taker as the little period involving Warrior, Taker and Roberts in reality is one of my favourite.
