Default [WWF 1991] Gulf War Wrestling

Background Information
Good morning/afternoon/prevening/evening to everyone that has taken time out of their lives to take a look at this diary. This diary is angeldelayette presenting his take on World Wrestling Federation beginning in the month of January and the year of 1991. I have done many diaries in the past, both Cornellverse and Real World. My latest diaries ended about three months ago. Though I may go back to them at some point. Those diaries are located here: [WCW 1991] Bischoff Era Begins Early and here: USPW: My Birthday. Though, chances are that those diaries will not be restarted.

I love this time period as it brings me back to my childhood. It is a wonderful time where The Ultimate Warrior is the king of the WWF, Sgt. Slaughter is an Iraqi sympathizing turncoat and Hulkamania is still running wild. I hope to bring a very unique take on this time period as we move forward. I am going to keep this diary as unique to the time period as I can. However, there will be a few changes made.

I have made a couple of changes to the schedule for the World Wrestling Federation. One of them is that WWF Prime Time Wrestling is now the 'A' show. This show takes place Prime Time on the USA Network for 2 hours on Monday nights. It is announced that it will be live every single week. The 'B' show now is WWF Superstars. All other shows have been removed from their show slots.

Inspiration
justtxyank - I would like to thank justtxyank for the hard work in creating the data that this diary is built from. I have enjoyed the hard work and I hope that I do this data justice.

jhd1 - A great diary writer and one that I go to for support again and again. He is one of my best friends on these GDS boards. He is also responsible for a lot of the graphics work that gets done both in the diary and in different games. I thank him for that.

Eisen-verse - Another amazing diary writer. He is another one of my friends and always offers good advice when I need it. His epic SWF diary, DOA diaries, PSW and the list goes on and on, have been an inspiration on everyone that reads it. I have definitely been inspired by his depictions of wrestlers in all of his diaries. One cannot help but to be inspired.

Cut Artists - I cannot forget these amazing artists that bring the real world to life. All credit for the cuts and pictures goes to their respective artists. A special thank you goes to these artists. If there is one that you see that you would like me to change the name to include/give credit to you as the artist, please feel free to let me know here or in pm.

Beejus - He is someone to whom I want to give some special thanks. His epic diary, WCW '94: War of the Thrones, is a definite diary to read. I only hope I can live up to half of what he has written there. Thank you for being an inspiration to us all.

Smasher1311 - Another predictor that has been with me for a very long time. I appreciate both his dedication and his comments when it comes to predictions time. Those comments are very important and can be a true inspiration.

KnowYourEnemy - A special thanks here to KYE for all of his inspiration and support. Throughout all of my diaries, he has been there watching my back and I am forever grateful for that.

One Star Bandit - You know who you are. I don't know who you are. But you still inspire me to put out diaries that maybe one day you will rate just a little bit higher.

Lexa90, BHK1978, critical-23, TheLeviticalLawKid3, 20LEgend, Bigpapa42, Emark, Tigerkinney, Rayelek, Midnightnick, RKOwnage, pennyone, 3rdStringPG, packerman120, Zergon, James The Animator, horseman4lyfe, to4sty, Warhawk8492, Kijar, The Lloyd and more - These names have been some of the more long-lasting names that have commented and predicted within my diaries in the past. They have been and always continue to be an inspiration to me in their comments and predictions. They always seem to stick by me through thick and thin, though some more-so than others now. Which, again, I do not blame them for their choices. I just want to thank them here and now for their predictions and comments in the past.

-We are on the road to the Royal Rumble this month. This night begins that road on WWF Prime Time Wrestling! As announced this past week, Prime Time will be live from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey! It will be the first live show in the series and there will be more successive live shows as we move forward. It will be hosted by Gorilla Monsoon, Vince McMahon and Roddy Piper.

-The main event will feature two men who have an earnest dislike for each other. Back in May 1990, Earthquake attacked Hulk Hogan and crushed Hogan's ribs. Then Hogan made his return at SummerSlam 1990 when he defeated Earthquake by count out. Now, the two of them meet on the first ever live edition of WWF Prime Time Wrestling. Only one man can come out of this with a win and momentum toward the Royal Rumble. Can you predict which of these two men will win?

-The first hour will, also, see a very good main event match in the tag team division. We will see Haku and The Barbarian of the Bobby Heenan Family take on The Legion of Doom! This match promises to be one of the biggest hardest hitting tag team bouts of the month. The winner of this bout is definitely promised to move up in the tag team rankings and possibly get a future WWF World Tag Team title shot against The Hart Foundation.

-Roddy Piper will host Piper's Pit this week on Prime Time Wrestling. His very special guests will be none other than the WWF Heavyweight Champion The Ultimate Warrior and his challenger at the Royal Rumble, Sgt. Slaughter! Fireworks will definitely be ready to explode on this night with these two men in the very same ring.

-Roddy Piper is not the only one hosting a segment on Prime Time Wrestling, Brother Love will host the Brother Love Show. His special guests will be The Million Dollar Man and Virgil. These two men are scheduled to take on Dusty Rhodes and Dustin Rhodes at the Royal Rumble. What will these two evil men have to say about that upcoming match? Make sure you tune in on Monday night on USA and find out.

-Jack Tunney also plans to make an announcement regarding the Royal Rumble. What will the WWF President have to say when he makes an appearance on Prime Time Wrestling?

Non-Title Match
Mr. Perfect vs. Brian Costello
Comments: Mr. Perfect wins in a quick match. Looking forward to seeing his first true challenger for the belt.

Brooklyn Brawler vs. The Texas Tornado
Comments: Texas Tornado wins in what should be a good match. Brawler is one of my favorite jobbers of this time next to Iron Mike Sharpe.

The Warlord vs. Al Burke
Comments: Match to get over Warlord. He could be a great heel for you.

Haku and The Barbarian vs. The Legion of Doom
Comments: This would have been an interesting match to see at this time. Don't think they met until WCW several years later.

Rick Martel vs. Sam Houston
Comments: I think Martel wins although Houston would be someone who if he can control his demons could be a star in the midcard.

Barry Hardy and Bob Bradley vs. The Rockers
Comments: Rockers pick up the victory in a squash match.

Earthquake vs. Hulk Hogan
Comments: PPV Quality match on free TV.

Thoughts On Diary: Looking forward to seeing the schedule of PPVs as they are starting to try to add some more events. Seeing the title pictures and storylines develop as the Hogan era starts to die out and the Next Gen start. Curious to see who will get the straps moving forward. Hope this save makes it several years into the game.

Non-Title Match
Mr. Perfect vs. Brian Costello
Comments: Mr. Perfect, IMO, was one of the best pure wrestlers of that era, and he had the charisma. It's a shame he never got a chance with the main title.

Brooklyn Brawler vs. The Texas Tornado
Comments: Ditto what I said about Tornado. He and Hennig left this world far too soon.

The Warlord vs. Al Burke
Comments: Definitely a squash match here.

Haku and The Barbarian vs. The Legion of Doom
Comments: Really looking forward to seeing how this match plays out.

Rick Martel vs. Sam Houston
Comments: Martel was really under utilized in both WWF and WCW. Don't remember much of Houston.

Barry Hardy and Bob Bradley vs. The Rockers
Comments: The Rockers were one of my favorite tag teams, hope they get a good push as a tag team here.

Earthquake vs. Hulk Hogan

Comments: I really, really hate to pick Hogan. I actually liked Hogan growing up, he was my hero. Then I found out what kind of person he really was, and now I pretty much despise him. Nevertheless, you're going to have a hard time booking him to go over cleanly, especially as the face of the company.

Thoughts On Diary: Really looking forward to this, as my WWF 1991 attempt got washed out. Mine was a brand split though, so I'll be interested to see what you do with the whole roster together.

The first show will most likely be posted tomorrow barring any real life distractions. I hope y'all will enjoy it as we move forward on this journey together. I thought I would go ahead and respond to some of the comments here. Thank you to everyone who predicted and commented for my first show.

Hey KYE. It's great to see you here. This is definitely a great time period for the WWF. It's weird to think that this will be my first WWF 1991 diary for TEW 2016. I definitely have some plans as we move forward. It's great to have you on this journey with me.

Hey horseman4lyfe! Thanks for the predictions and comments. It is definitely sad that Kerry's demons get the better of him in real life. That is one reason why I love TEW. We can possibly see what might have been. There's definitely a lot of good midcard talent. I just hope that I can utilize them to the best of my ability.

Hey RyanR93WKU. Thanks for the comments and predictions. I am definitely trying to keep some things true to real life, such as certain feuds, while being able to expand my horizons and make my own decisions. With this, I can tell you that Perfect's first challenger will be...well, just wait and see with the first show.

Brooklyn Brawler is one of my favorite jobbers, as well. I am one of the few that is actually a big fan of jobbers. Guys like Iron Mike Sharpe, Brooklyn Brawler, Barry Horowitz, etc. You will eventually see them all here.

I did give away a PPV quality match here as Earthquake takes on Hogan. But I do have a reason for it. This will be the feud ender either way when it comes to the Hogan/Earthquake feud. There's a little bit of a spoiler.

As far as the schedule of PPVs go, there definitely will not be a full 12 month schedule just yet. I want to keep things as realistic as possible. King of the Ring, though, will be getting a pay-per-view all it's own. But that's not for a few months now. I have plans for the straps from this point through WrestleMania right now.

Hey sportsfanmas! Thanks for the predictions and comments. I am in total agreeance with you when it comes to Mr. Perfect and The Texas Tornado. They both could have been so much more if not for certain timely things. Imagine them in today's WWE. They would be right at the top, in my opinion.

So many people complain about Hulk Hogan but the truth is that most people were Hulkamaniacs back in the day, myself included. Back in the day, he did a lot of things for charity and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. But I'm not here to defend him because I know he's not a perfect man(that's Curt Hennig). I hope you enjoy going on this journey with me as we move forward.

Non-Title Match
Mr. Perfect vs. Brian Costello
Comments: Im not particularly familiar on this era so Im sure I screw predictions sooner or later but pretty sure this is a squash match

Brooklyn Brawler vs. The Texas Tornado
Comments: Tornado gains some momentum

The Warlord vs. Al Burke
Comments: Warlord is a guy I have heart about, Burkes name does ring some bell too but I cant recall anything about him so I figure hes jobber.

Haku and The Barbarian vs. The Legion of Doom
Comments: So this is certainly a closer match but I just have to go with Legion.

Rick Martel vs. Sam Houston
Comments: Again, going with the guy who I know better.

Barry Hardy and Bob Bradley vs. The Rockers
Comments: Named team over random pairing

Earthquake vs. Hulk Hogan
Comments: Hogan doesnt lose a whole lot, right?

Non-Title Match
Mr. Perfect vs. Brian Costello
Comments: Goes without saying that Perfect goes over

Brooklyn Brawler vs. The Texas Tornado
Comments: Ditto for Kerry....hopefully you can keep his demons under control because I was a big Tornado fan back in the day

The Warlord vs. Al Burke
Comments: Three for three in the squashes....I was a big Powers of Pain fan, not so much the Phantom of the Opera Warlord's solo run.....guessing you bring Davey Boy in at some point, since Bulldog and Warlord wrestled at virtually every event this year I believe

Haku and The Barbarian vs. The Legion of Doom
Comments: It's gonna be stiff brother the Doomers go over....although if you were looking for credible challengers for the Harts (since I'm not sure if the Nasty's have jumped ship yet) you could do worse than the future Faces of Fear

Rick Martel vs. Sam Houston
Comments: Houston is no Jake Roberts that's for sure....he's a decent underdog babyface, but Martel wins here

Barry Hardy and Bob Bradley vs. The Rockers
Comments: Shawn and Marty keep rocking along here....until the eventual split

Earthquake vs. Hulk Hogan
Comments: Huge TV match that co-headlined Summerslam only a few months earlier.....I was always more of a Warrior/Savage fan that Hogan, but he doesn't lose much at the best of times, let alone on tv......that and I'm assuming he has a showdown with Slaughter in his future, so this keeps him strong

Thoughts On Diary: Good to see you taking on the "F" after your NWA diary, it's certainly an interesting time too, so I'm curious to see what direction you take things.....and while I would have no problem seeing Hogan/Slaughter and Warrior/Savage at Mania (much as IRL) I would much rather see the stipulations reversed......Warrior vs. Savage for the Title, Hogan vs. Slaughter in a retirement match

WWF PRIME TIME WRESTLING!
Monday Week 1 January 1991
Location: Izod Center (Tri State)
Attendance: 19,640
Overall Rating: B+
TV Rating: 4.01


Quote:

[Following the opening video, WWF Prime Time Wrestling begins at the announce booth and a focus on the three man announce team of Gorilla Monsoon, Vince McMahon and Roddy Piper. Monsoon welcomes everyone to a very special live edition of Prime Time Wrestling, reminding everyone that they will be live every single week right here on the USA network. So, if you want the best in sports and entertainment, make sure you tune in each and every week to Prime Time Wrestling. McMahon steps in, doing a run down of what you can expect to see tonight, including The Million Dollar Man and Virgil in the Brother Love Show and a main event that features Earthquake going one on one with The Immortal Hulk Hogan. Roddy Piper pipes up, stating that he will be hosting Piper's Pit tonight with special guests the WWF Heavyweight Champion The Ultimate Warrior and his challenger at the Royal Rumble, Sgt. Slaughter. Monsoon reminds everyone that the Royal Rumble is coming up at the end of the month and that Jack Tunney will be making a special announcement about the Royal Rumble match tonight. McMahon sends us to the ring for our opening match which features the WWF Intercontinental Champion Mr. Perfect.]
Match #1
Quote:

Non-Title Match
Mr. Pefect vs. Brian Costello


[In an extremely short match, Mr. Perfect(B+) defeated Brian Costello(E+) in 3:36 by pinfall with a Perfect Plex.]

Winner: Mr. Perfect (Via Pinfall @ 3:36)
Match Rating: C-
Quote:


[Bobby Heenan enters the ring and raises the arm of his client, Mr. Perfect. Heenan is handed the WWF Intercontinental title and he raises the belt up high in the air before some familiar music hits and here comes the Big Bossman! Bossman has the nightstick in his right hand as he enters the ring, ducking underneath as Heenan tries to hit him with the belt. He strikes Perfect in the gut with the nightstick, doubling him over. Bossman prepares to strike Perfect again but he gets attacked by two more members of The Heenan Family, Haku and The Barbarian! The crowd boos in the background as Haku strikes Bossman with a headbutt. The Barbarian catches Bossman with a running big boot right before the crowd cheers as Haku and The Barbarian's opponents for tonight, The Legion of Doom, rush the ring! Heenan has seen enough and calls his men to exit the ring without battling the LoD. The Heenan Family back up the ramp together as Hawk and Animal help Big Bossman to his feet. In the background, Vince McMahon lets the fans know that the Big Bossman will be receiving a WWF Intercontinental title shot against Mr. Perfect at the Royal Rumble. As the staredown ensues, Gorilla Monsoon sends us to the video segment known as Update.]
Quote:


[It's time for Update with Gene Okerlund! Mean Gene talks about shows coming up in the Great Lakes and New England areas before turning his attention to the ongoing feud between Rick Martel and Jake Roberts. He shows us the beginning of this feud, which happened in October 1990. On an episode of the Brother Love Show, Martel accidentally sprayed Roberts in the eyes with his arrogance, blinding The Snake. Roberts came back for Survivor Series where Martel's team, The Visionaries, defeated Roberts' team, The Vipers. With that having been shown, Okerlund sends us to a promo with The Snake. Jake Roberts is shown standing in front of a snake background. He paces for a moment before looking in the camera. Roberts says that the sad fact in life is that the things that other people do to you not only affect you but they affect everyone around you. He says that loved ones have to take care of you when you're sick or injured. He says that's why he doesn't keep anyone around like that. He doesn't want anyone else to be affected when he gets hurt doing the things that he has to do. But he hopes that Rick Martel has someone like that. He knows that Martel is going to need someone when he finishes The Model off at the Royal Rumble. He tells Martel that if he isn't a coward, he will meet The Snake at the Royal Rumble one on one. He promises to make history on that night. Trust me. Roberts smiles and we head back to the ring.]
Match #2
Quote:

Brooklyn Brawler vs. The Texas Tornado

[In an extremely short match, The Texas Tornado(C+) defeated Brooklyn Brawler(D-) in 3:47 by pinfall with a Tornado Punch.]

Winner: The Texas Tornado (Via Pinfall @ 3:47)
Match Rating: C-
Quote:


[It's now time for the Royal Rumble Event Center hosted by Sean Mooney! Mooney talks about the upcoming 30 man Royal Rumble match at the end of the month. He begins listing off the names of some of the wrestlers who will be involved in the match. These include Haku, The Barbarian, Jake Roberts, Rick Martel, Jimmy Snuka and these two men. He sends us to a promo featuring Jimmy Hart standing by with Earthquake and Dino Bravo. The three men are standing in front of the Earthquake logo with Hart holding his usual megaphone in the air. Hart tells the WWF fans to take a good look at these two men standing with him because one of these two men will win the Royal Rumble this year. He says that last year it took six wrestlers to eliminate Earthquake. This year it will take twenty nine if they want to even have a chance to eliminate Earthquake. Then there's tonight where Earthquake gets his revenge against Hulk Hogan for what happened at SummerSlam. Hart says that it's going to be a 10.0 on the Richter scale tonight when Earthquake destroys the man who all the little Hulksters worship, baby. During the promo, Earthquake and Dino Bravo look menacing in the background. With that, we head to the ring for our next bout.]
Match #3
Quote:

The Warlord vs. Al Burke

[In a terrible match, The Warlord(C-) defeated Al Burke(E+) in 4:14 by submission with a Bearhug.]

Winner: The Warlord (Via Submission @ 4:14)
Match Rating: C-
Quote:


[Slick enters the ring as The Warlord releases the Bearhug, tossing Al Burke over the top rope to the floor. Slick has a microphone and says that this is exactly what's going to happen to twenty nine other wrestlers at the Royal Rumble. He tells everyone to take a good look at The Warlord because there's no one in this company that's stronger than him. When he steps into the Royal Rumble, they are going to have turn out the lights because the party's over. The promo is interrupted by the arrival of The British Bulldog! Bulldog walks out toward the ring with a microphone, stating that he would like to argue about The Warlord being the strongest man in the WWF. Bulldog enters the ring and flexes his muscles before going face-to-face with The Warlord. After a short staredown, Bulldog throws the first punch 6 foot 5 inch Warlord. Warlord fires back with a punch! The two men go back and forth with punches before Bulldog blocks a punch and fires three in a row, rocking The Warlord backward. Slick quickly steps in between the two wrestlers, distracting The British Bulldog. This distraction allows The Warlord to come back and send Bulldog over the top rope with a clothesline! Bulldog lands on the floor at ringside and The Warlord roars as he celebrates in the ring. Slick raises the arm of The Warlord and this could be the scene at the end of the Royal Rumble.]
Quote:

[We cut to a promo with the number one contender, Sgt. Slaughter and his manager General Adnan. It's quickly obvious that neither of them are in the building tonight despite being advertised for Piper's Pit. Slaughter begins the promo by telling the maggots to stand at attention for a man who is their superior. He says that there is no way that he is going to be in New Jersey tonight, the armpit of America. Instead, he has been in touch with one of the greatest leaders of the world in Saddam Hussein. He says that after he is victorious at the Royal Rumble, he is going to take the WWF Heavyweight title belt and lay it at the feet of Hussein. He says that The Ultimate Puke has no chance when stepping in the ring with him at the Royal Rumble. When they step in the ring the same thing is going to happen there that is going to happen in Iraq. An American is going to fall to a better man, a better country. He announces that he is dedicating his victory at the Royal Rumble to a good friend and a great ally, the true leader of Iraq: Saddam Hussein. He says that in that moment The Ultimate Puke will be dismissed and that's...an order! Slaughter gives a salute of dismissal before we go to the ring for our first hour main event.]

Haku and The Barbarian vs. The Legion Of Doom

[Our first hour main event features two of the hardest hitting tag teams in the business as Haku and The Barbarian with Bobby Heenan take on Animal and Hawk of The Legion Of Doom. The match begins with Haku and Animal in the ring, both trying to show their strength in a tieup. Animal grabs a side headlock and Haku shoots him to the ropes. A shoulderblock from Haku but Animal doesn't sell it at all. Instead, he sticks out his tongue at Haku! Haku bounces off the ropes and Animal throws a shoulderblock that is not sold by Haku! Haku bounces off the ropes again and Animal catches him with a stiff clothesline, sending Haku to the mat. Animal picks up Haku and brings him down with a press slam to the mat! Haku quickly tags in The Barbarian and Animal tags in Hawk. Following some back and forth between the two men, The Barbarian takes control. The Barbarian drags Hawk into the corner and makes quick tags in and out with Haku, keeping a fresh man in the ring and Hawk in their half of the ring. Haku catches Hawk with a flapjack, making a cover but only scoring a two count. The crowd tries to work Hawk back into the match with cheers and claps. Haku tags in The Barbarian and The Barbarian goes for a crescent kick but Hawk manages to duck and catch The Barbarian with a flying shoulderblock that sends The Barbarian through the ropes to the floor, giving Hawk a major opportunity to get to his corner. Bobby Heenan yells at The Barbarian to get up at ringside as Hawk crawls over and manages to tag in Animal, drawing cheers from the crowd.]

[Animal enters the ring and goes right after The Barbarian when he comes inside. He throws Barbarian to the ropes and catches him with a snap powerslam, getting a two count because the pinfall is broken up by Haku. Animal picks up The Barbarian and catches him with a swift kick to the gut before bouncing off the ropes and catching him with a running knee to the head. The Barbarian manages to stagger backward and actually tag in Haku. Haku rushes Animal but Animal ducks his head and sends Haku up and over with a back body drop. Animal looks around for a moment before raising up two thumbs! He tags in Hawk and then picks up Haku, placing Haku up on his shoulders! Hawk climbs to the top turnbuckle and looks at Haku for a moment -- Doomsday Device! Haku goes flying off the shoulders of Animal to the mat below. Hawk makes a cover as Animal knocks The Barbarian off the apron: One, Two, Three! A big win for The Legion of Doom! The Hart Foundation better watch out!]


Winners: The Legion Of Doom (Via Pinfall @ 9:35)

[To end the first hour, we are taken to the office of WWF President Jack Tunney. Tunney says that he hopes everyone is enjoying this live edition of Prime Time Wrestling. He reminds everyone that the Royal Rumble is coming up at the end of the month and that this features the Royal Rumble match where 30 WWF Superstars will try to win by eliminating their opponents. The only way to win is to throw 29 of your fellow competitors over the top rope and their feet hit the floor. Tunney talks about previous winners of the Royal Rumble, including Jim Duggan winning the first Royal Rumble, Big John Studd winning in 1989 and Hulk Hogan winning last year. He says that in previous years, the winners of these Royal Rumbles received a trophy and bragging rights. But this year he is upping the ante. He says that the winner of this year's Royal Rumble will receive an automatic WWF Heavyweight title shot at WrestleMania. He reminds everyone that the Royal Rumble is every man for himself and only one man can win the biggest prize. He wishes everyone good luck before we head back to the ringside area.]
Quote:


[The second hour begins with Gorilla Monsoon and Vince McMahon briefly talking about that stunning announcement made moments before by Jack Tunney. Inside the ring, the ring is set up for Piper's Pit with Roddy Piper standing in the middle of the ring. Piper says that the Royal Rumble is now one of the biggest matches in the history of the World Wrestling Federation. But now they are here for the biggest show in the history of the WWF: Piper's Pit. Piper announces that the coward, Sgt. Slaughter, will not be here on the Pit. Instead, he introduces the man who is looking to retain the WWF Heavyweight title at the Royal Rumble, introducing The Ultimate Warrior! The crowd cheers loudly as Warrior comes running in from the back, heading right to the ring. He slides inside and begins shaking the ropes on all four sides before turning his attention to the host of the Pit, Roddy Piper. Piper welcomes Warrior to Piper's Pit, reminding him that just when he thinks he has all the answers, Piper changes the questions. Piper begins by asking Warrior about his upcoming title defense against Sgt. Slaughter at the Royal Rumble. Warrior snarls and says that Sgt. Slaughter has all of his focus on the war in Iraq and not the war inside the WWF ring. He says that there is a war in the heart of Sgt. Slaughter, a man who betrayed his country. That war is between the good man and the bad man. That is a war that can only be won with the total destruction of Sgt. Slaughter. Piper shifts gears slightly and asks Warrior if he knows that Slaughter set up an agreement with Randy Savage for a WWF Heavyweight title shot if Slaughter wins the title. Warrior says that the agreement will be null and void because Slaughter will not walk away from the Royal Rumble with the championship. The Pit gets interrupted by someone, a female walking down the aisle.]


[Here comes the Sensational Queen Sherri! The crowd boos as she walks down to the ring, stepping up the stairs and then entering the ring. Roddy Piper says that she was never invited here tonight but Sherri responds that women who obey the rules rarely make history. Then she turns her attention to The Ultimate Warrior. She confirms that Sgt. Slaughter agreed to give Randy Savage a WWF Heavyweight title shot if he defeats The Ultimate Warrior at the Royal Rumble. Now, she says, it is time for The Ultimate Warrior to do the same. She claims that she will make it worth Warrior's while if he agrees to that match. At this point, she is definitely invading his personal space as she runs her fingers along his chest. She says that all The Ultimate Warrior has to do is say yes. Warrior grunts as he looks down at Sherri before he gives her the answer that she doesn't want to hear: NO! Sherri immediately looks angered as Warrior turned her down. She slaps him twice but he grabs her wrist as she goes for the third time. He holds that wrist in his hand until he is attacked from behind by Randy Savage! The Macho King strikes Warrior in the back of the head with his sceptor, sending Warrior down to the mat. Savage and Sherri take turns stomping on Warrior as Piper tries to get some order. Instead, Savage swings the sceptor at Piper and the host ducks, escaping from being attacked. Savage picks up Warrior and drops him to the mat with a body slam before heading to the top turnbuckle. Officials come running in to stop Savage but he leaps anyway, striking Warrior with the flying elbow drop! Savage gets on his knees and throws punches before officials finally manage to pull him off. He is forced away as Warrior is checked on in the ring.]
Match #6

Rick Martel vs. Sam Houston

[In an extremely short match, Rick Martel(B-) defeated Sam Houston(E-) in 5:16 by submission with a Quebec Crab.]

Winner: Rick Martel (Via Submission @ 5:16)
Match Rating: C
Quote:


[The bell sounds but Rick Martel refuses to release the Quebec Crab despite Sam Houston giving up. Martel has an evil smile on his face as he leans back while referee Tim White begins counting, reaching in and trying to physically break the hold. Martel finally releases but turns back to Houston, putting the boots to him before walking over and getting the Arrogance atomizer. Martel strikes Houston on the back of the head with the atomizer and then motions to his eyes, looking like he might try to blind Sam Houston! The moment ends, though, when Jake Roberts comes running in from the back with snake bag in hand. Roberts slides in the ring under the bottom rope and is struck with the atomizer by Martel! Martel pulls Roberts up but Roberts catches Martel with a kick to the gut -- DD -- NO! Martel slips free from the DDT attempt and quickly escapes the ring. In the ring, Roberts releases Damian from the bag! The snake crawls around the ring, crawling toward Sam Houston. The announcers are surprised as Houston doesn't shrink from the snake. Instead, Houston pulls the snake in close, almost cuddling with Damian! Roberts looks down at Sam Houston and actually helps him up and they stand side by side with Damian across their shoulders.]
Quote:


[At a staging area, we see the set up for the Brother Love Show! Standing in the middle of the church background is Brother Love himself. Standing guard behind Brother Love is his current client, The Undertaker. Love has a microphone and begins by telling the WWF fans that 'I Love you!' He says that he is here in New Jersey today to spread the word of love. There are no two better people in this world for him to share this love with than his guests today on the Brother Love Show. Those two guests are Brother The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and Brother Virgil! The eerie laughter of DiBiase brings the two men out from the back together and they walk right for the staging area where the church is set up for Brother Love. DiBiase shakes hands with Love and just motions for Virgil to stand back in the background. Love welcomes Brother DiBiase to the Brother Love Show and says that they are here tonight to talk about DiBiase and Virgil spreading love to brothers Dusty and Dustin Rhodes. DiBiase says it's great to be here on the Brother Love Show and then turns his attention to the man standing behind Brother Love, The Undertaker. He reminds everyone that everyone has a price for The Million Dollar Man, including The Undertaker. That is why he was the man to bring The Undertaker to the World Wrestling Federation. DiBiase turns to Brother Love and says that he has a proposition for him. He says that he wants to purchase the services of The Undertaker for the match at the Royal Rumble against the Rhodes family. Virgil looks upset in the background at the thought of being replaced. Love says that in the spirit of Love, he will talk with The Undertaker and get back with The Million Dollar Man. Love and DiBiase shake hands and Love ends the segment, sending us back to the ring as the camera zooms in on a very unhappy Virgil.]

Barry Hardy and Bob Bradley vs. The Rockers

[In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, The Rockers(Michaels-B-, Jannetty-C+) defeated Barry Hardy(E-) and Bob Bradley(D-) in 3:50 when Shawn Michaels defeated Barry Hardy by pinfall with a Rocker-Plex.]

Winners: The Rockers (Via Pinfall @ 3:50)

[As we get ready to go back to the ring for our main event contest, we are taken to a backstage interview with Gene Okerlund standing by with Hulk Hogan. Okerlund reminds us that we are only minutes away from Hogan's match tonight with Earthquake. Okerlund asks Hogan what he has to say about his match tonight. Hogan opens things up with his usual 'Let me tell you something, Mean Gene.' He says that he remembers back on the Brother Love Show when Earthquake attacked him and broke his ribs. More importantly, he remembers all of his Hulkamaniacs at his back sending cards and letters. He says that those Hulkamaniacs were with him at SummerSlam when he defeated Earthquake then and they will be at his back tonight, brother. He says that he knows that the Hulkamaniacs here in New Jersey will watch his back. He threatens Jimmy Hart with his pythons if Hart decides to interfere in the match. He says that Hulkamania is running wilder than it ever has before. He reminds everyone that he won the Royal Rumble last year and he is going to ride that wave of power to back to back Royal Rumble victories and a slot against the WWF Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania, brother. But his focus right now is tonight when he has to ask Earthquake one important question. That question is what are you going to do? Whatcha gonna do when the power of Hulkamania runs wild over you?!?! Okerlund sends us to the ring for this main event match.]
Match #8
Quote:

Earthquake vs. Hulk Hogan

[This main event match is definitely a pay-per-view quality match as the Canadian Earthquake steps in the ring against The Immortal Hulk Hogan. The two men make their entrances and when the bell sounds they go face-to-face. Jimmy Hart yells at Hogan through his megaphone at ringside. Earthquake shoves Hogan backward, knocking him all the way to the mat! Hogan pops right back up and bounces off the ropes, hitting Earthquake with a shoulderblock! Earthquake barely moves, staring Hogan down! Hogan bounces off the ropes but Earthquake catches him with a clothesline! Earthquake picks up Hogan and brings him down with a body slam! Earthquake goes for an elbow drop but Hogan rolls out of the way and Earthquake catches nothing but mat! Hogan gets to his feet and then pulls Earthquake up, driving him backward into the turnbuckles. Hogan climbs up and begins raining punches down on Earthquake! The crowd counts along with each punch until Hogan gets to five and Earthquake shoves him off to the mat. Hogan pops back up but runs right into a kick to the gut from Earthquake. Earthquake strikes Hogan with a forearm shot to the back, sending him down to the mat. Earthquake picks up Hogan and tosses him out of the ring before getting the attention of the referee. With the referee distracted, Jimmy Hart slams the megaphone to the back of Hogan. Could we see another count out in this feud? Earthquake stands back and lets the referee do the counting but Hogan makes it back in the ring before the count out. Earthquake continues his control for the next several minutes, focusing on the back of Hogan. He wraps his arms around Hogan in the center of the ring, squeezing him in a bear hug. Hogan shakes his head, refusing to submit. Earthquake squeezes tighter and Hogan looks like he might be passing out. The referee steps in and begins raising Hogan's arm.]



[....1....



....2....



...Hogan's arm doesn't fall, raising back up to cheers from the crowd]

[Hulk Hogan throws three straight punches to Earthquake! Hogan breaks the bear hug and bites Earthquake on the forehead! Earthquake is staggered backward and Jimmy Hart climbs on the apron. Hart has the attention of the referee and then the attention of Hogan. Hart manages to secretly get the megaphone to Earthquake, who bashes it over the back of Hogan's head! Earthquake tosses the megaphone away and brings down Hogan with a body slam before bouncing off the ropes -- Earthquake Splash! Earthquake is settled sitting on Hogan's chest as Jimmy Hart drops off the apron. The referee turns back around and begins making the count: One, Two, HUGE KICKOUT BY HOGAN! Hogan fights up to his knees, shaking his head and beginning to Hulk Up! Earthquake begins throwing punches but Hogan doesn't sell them. Instead, he works his way back up to his feet and then points toward Earthquake. He waves his finger back and forth before blocking a punch from Earthquake! He throws three straight punches, knocking Earthquake back to the ropes. He sends Earthquake to the opposite side -- Big Boot! Earthquake is staggered! Hogan makes a body slam motion with his hands and then picks up Earthquake -- Body Slam! Hogan cups his hand to his ear, drawing in cheers from the crowd! He bounces off the ropes -- Leg Drop! Hogan hits the Leg Drop on Earthquake! He gets back up and bounces off the ropes -- a second Leg Drop in a row! He makes the cover, hooking the leg:]

Winner: Hulk Hogan (Via Pinfall @ 15:19)
Match Rating: B+
Quote:

[What an incredible main event! Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper and Gorilla Monsoon state that this is already a match of the year candidate and the year is just beginning. Hulk Hogan gets to his feet and begins to celebrate in the ring. Jimmy Hart helps Earthquake from the ring and to the back. In the ring, Hogan cups his hand to his ear, listening to the cheers and the chants of 'Hogan,' 'Hogan,' 'Hogan!' Hogan flexes in the ring, posing for the crowd here in New Jersey. He exits the ring and begins moving around the ringside area, grabbing a small American flag from a fan at ringside. He waves the flag before handing it back to the fan. He hugs the younger fans and kisses the babies. Gorilla Monsoon reminds everyone to tune in this Saturday for WWF Superstars where we will see Virgil take on Tito Santana! The credits begin to roll as Hogan continues to celebrate with the fans. We'll see you Saturday!]

Hey Zergon! Thanks for the predictions and comments. If you have any particular questions about the era, please feel free to ask here or in my pm box if you'd rather. But you did a great job on the first show!

Comments: Three for three in the squashes....I was a big Powers of Pain fan, not so much the Phantom of the Opera Warlord's solo run.....guessing you bring Davey Boy in at some point, since Bulldog and Warlord wrestled at virtually every event this year I believe

Earthquake vs. Hulk Hogan
Comments: Huge TV match that co-headlined Summerslam only a few months earlier.....I was always more of a Warrior/Savage fan that Hogan, but he doesn't lose much at the best of times, let alone on tv......that and I'm assuming he has a showdown with Slaughter in his future, so this keeps him strong

Thoughts On Diary: Good to see you taking on the "F" after your NWA diary, it's certainly an interesting time too, so I'm curious to see what direction you take things.....and while I would have no problem seeing Hogan/Slaughter and Warrior/Savage at Mania (much as IRL) I would much rather see the stipulations reversed......Warrior vs. Savage for the Title, Hogan vs. Slaughter in a retirement match
Hey to4sty! Thanks for the predictions and comments! I am definitely doing what I can in order to keep Tornado's demons under control. I really don't want to see what happened in reality happen here.

You were definitely right about the whole Bulldog/Warlord feud. It is an easy way to start things off. But I don't expect it to run for the entire year, though.

The Hogan/Earthquake match is definitely a huge TV match. I hope that my write-up for it conveyed what a big match it was. Does Hogan have a date with Sgt. Slaughter in the future? We will just have to wait and see.

Glad to see that there is interest in the WWF version of 1991. It is definitely a switch from my NWA past. But I love the focus on the characters. Will we see the same matches coming up at WrestleMania? The only way to find out is to make sure to keep tuned in.

Hey Kijar! Thanks for the predictions and comments! I actually like Rick Martel as well. I think he was very underrated in both WWF and WCW.

Thanks a lot for being here for me as I embark upon this new journey. This is going to be a lot of fun. I am using my roommate as a sounding board for my storylines as I move forward.
