Sandman successfully defended the championship on 5/4 against Sal Bellomo. Sandman teamed with Peaches to wrestle Rockin’ Rebel and Tigra on 5/11, but it ended in a no contest.

On 5/18 Don Muraco made it apparent that he wanted the ECW World Championship. On the same show, Sandman wrestled Rebel to a no contest after Peaches and Tigra came down to the ring. That had been barred from ringside.

A match between Muraco and Sandman was signed to take place on the 5/25 show.
