Yearly Review: WWF July 1991

A busy month for the WWF. Plenty of new talent debuts for the company.

WWF World Championship Scene: (currently held by: Hulk Hogan)
Throughout the month, Hogan continued to successfully defend the championship against Sgt. Slaughter with most of the matches having the Desert Storm stipulation. Hogan also wrestled the Undertaker during the July 29th taping of Superstars and was able to beat him in less than five minutes.

Hogan will team with the Ultimate Warrior next month to wrestle Slaughter, Adnan and Mustafa at SummerSlam.

WWF Intercontinental Championship Scene: (currently held by: Mr. Perfect)
Mr. Perfect didn’t wrestle much during the month due to a nagging back injury. The few matches he did compete in where against the British Bulldog. Perfect will defend the championship against Bret Hart at SummerSlam.

WWF World Tag Team Championship Scene: (currently held by: The Nasty Boys)
The Nasty Boys successfully defended their championships against the Hart Foundation at the July 1st MSG show. The match would mark the last time Bret and Neidhart would team for roughly six years. The rest of the month saw the Nasty Boys lose to the Legion of Doom by count-out on the house shows.
