Yearly Review: WWF February ’90
World Wrestling Federation February 1990
WWF World Championship Scene: (currently held by: Hulk Hogan)
On the house show market, Hogan continued to do battle with Mr. Perfect. They would have several steel cage matches with Hogan prevailing over Perfect. At the February 19th MSG house show Hogan teamed with Brutus Beefcake to get a tag team victory over Mr. Perfect and The Genius.
Hogan also had to deal with the Ultimate Wariror and Dino Bravo. At the February 14th taping of WWF Superstars, Hogan competed in a match with Bravo, which he won, but was attacked afterward by Earthquake until his opponent at WrestleMania VI, the Ultimate Warrior came out for the save.
The rather productive month came to an end with Hogan squaring off against former friend and current rival, Randy Savage. They had a match on February 23rd for the Main Event III special on NBC. The special referee for the match was Buster Douglas. Hogan was able to pin Savage after a legdrop to retain the championship. Later on in the show, Hogan saved Warrior from a post-match beat down by Bravo and Earthquake.
WWF Intercontinental Championship Scene: (currently held by: Ultimate Warrior)
Warrior primarily competed in matches against Dino Bravo in a few steel cage matches or traditional singles matches. Warrior also teamed with Jake Roberts to compete against Ted DiBiase and Akeem in tag team main events on the house show market.
WWF World Tag Team Championship Scene: (currently held by: Andre the Giant & Haku)
Just like last month, the tag team champions continued to compete against Demolition on the house show market and were successful in retaining the tag team championships. There weren’t any new developments in the feud between both teams.
– Jake Roberts and Ted DiBiase continued their series of matches on the house show market with the Big Bossman serving as the special referee for the match. Roberts didn’t have any problem walking out victorious as Bossman would sometimes get involved in helping Roberts win the match.
– The Orient Express made their debut during the February 13th taping of WWF Superstars.
– Earthquake showed his dominance as he beat up jobbers to the point that they would need to be stretchered out of the arena. He also destroyed Ron Garvin at the February 19th MSG house show causing him to be stretchered out.
– Randy Savage and Dusty Rhodes would have several matches on the house show market with Rhodes winning them all by count-out or disqualification.
– For most of the month, Rick Rude was losing steel cage matches to Roddy Piper as they finished up their feud that had been taking place for the last several months.
