Significant events

Unknown date

  • The Ladies Professional Wrestling Association ceases operations

February

April

  • 19 - Miss Elizabeth makes her final live appearance for the WWF at a show in Sheffield, England, seconding WWF Heavyweight Champion Randy Savage in his match against Shawn Michaels (in one of Michaels' first matches where the World Heavyweight Championship was on the line). Shortly after this show, Elizabeth and Savage separated in real life; however, an ongoing angle involving Elizabeth, as part of Savage's feud with Ric Flair -- Flair going on television to show photos of him and Elizabeth, supposedly taken before Savage began his (on-screen) serious relationship with Elizabeth -- continues to play out on television to its conclusion. The Savage-Michaels match, meanwhile, is aired in early June on television, and will mark Elizabeth's final television appearance for the WWF during her lifetime, at roughly the same time as the conclusion of the Savage-Elizabeth-Flair storyline (the photos are proven to have been Flair and Curt Hennig PhotoShopping himself into existing photos of Elizabeth and Savage, hoping to gain a psychological advantage over Savage)
  • 30 - Portland promoter Don Owen retires and sells Pacific Northwest Wrestling to PNW referee Sandy Barr. The Portland Sports Arena, a converted bowling alley which had served as the home to live telecasts of Portland Wrestling for years on local TV station KPTV, is sold separately to a local church which subsequently renovated the building for its offices and meeting hall

July

  • Pacific Northwest Wrestling is reorganized as Championship Wrestling USA

August

  • South Atlantic Pro Wrestling ceases operations
  • The syndicated Superstars of Wrestling (not the similarly-named WWF show) is cancelled when series creator/host Joe Pedicino decides to end production of the program due to other commitments

September

  • The divorce of Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth is finalized and announced. A simple announcement is made on television, and also published in WWF Magazine, a rare break in kayfabe. Savage and Elizabeth had been married (in real life) for just less than eight years, and had no children together. Other than the announcement on TV, the situation is never mentioned again and never figures into any of Savage's future feuds during his remaining time with the WWF

November

  • 24 - Jerry Lawler makes his debut as a color commentator for the WWF's syndicated Superstars, during tapings on this date at the Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio. The first programs air December 12, with Lawler -- taking the "nasty heel" persona style, which he would use until roughly the late 1990s -- working alongside Vince McMahon, Jr. and Bobby Heenan
