Yearly Review: WWF June 1991
An historic engagement takes place. A former WCW star makes his debut. Plus, more!
WWF World Championship Scene: (currently held by: Hulk Hogan)
Hogan successfully defended the championship against Sgt. Slaughter in a Desert Storm match in Madison Square Garden. Hogan tossed a fireball into Slaughter’s face to get revenge for the fireball Slaughter tossed into Hogan’s face in April. That’s all that went on for Hogan, for the most part. Of course, he continued to beat Slaughter on the house shows.
WWF Intercontinental Championship Scene: (currently held by: Mr. Perfect)
Perfect continued to wrestle Davey Boy Smith on the house show market, but it also looked like Bret Hart was getting in the mix for the championship. During the June 18th taping of Wrestling Challenge, Hart got involved in Perfect’s match with Smith and attacked the champion and his manager to save Smith. This wasn’t televised, but looks to be a hint at what to expect in the future.
WWF World Tag Team Championship Scene: (currently held by: The Nasty Boys)
The Nasty Boys continued a brief feud with the Bushwhackers during the June 17th taping of WWF Superstars where they lost to the Bushwhackers by disqualification after Sags used a megaphone on Butch. They also would lose to the Legion of Doom on a regular basis on the house show market. Lastly, they teamed with the Mountie to feud with the Big Bossman and the Rockers on the house show market on a infrequent basis.
– It was teased throughout the month that Randy Savage was going to propose to Miss Elizabeth. During the June 17th taping of WWF Superstars, Randy Savage proposed to Elizabeth and she responded with an “oh yeah!”
– Vignettes promoting the debut of a new superstar began to air. That superstar was none other than Sid Justice. Sid was previously in WCW but jumped ship to the WWF after promised the world by Vince McMahon. Part of the vignettes saw several wrestlers say that Sid could do whatever he wanted in the promotion because he was that talented. Sid made his debut during the June 17th taping of WWF Superstars and announced he would be the special referee for the SummerSlam main event to make sure everything was even.
– Big Bossman made it clear that the Mountie and the Nasty Boys would pay for the attack they did on him previously. Mountie won a match at MSG on June 3rd, but Bossman got far more wins over the course of the month.
There weren’t any major televised events this month.
