Significant events

Unknown dates

  • The Silverton Casino Lodge first opened in Las Vegas, Nevada.
  • A year after being indicted on charges of distributing steroids to his wrestlers, Vince McMahon, Jr.'s case goes to trial. The jury acquits McMahon of the charges and he would resume his role in the day-to day operations of the WWF

July

  • 3 - Bob Backlund turns heel after losing a match against WWF Heavyweight Champion Bret Hart. A storyline is developed where Backlund's character would be that of an embittered older wrestler frustrated with ungrateful and uneducated fans, undeserved pushes of his opponents and mostly that he had never truly lost his match 10-1/2 years earlier to the Iron Sheik for the WWF Championship (i.e., his longtime manager and mentor Arnold Skaaland had mistakenly thrown in the towel)

  • 26 - Diesel defeats WWF Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund in eight seconds to win the title during a non-televised match at New York City's Madison Square Garden. In addition to the match becoming the shortest match where a major WWF title changed hands (except for future Money In the Bank cash-ins), this match was the last non-televised match where the WWF Champion was defeated for the title, although several video sharing services had clips from the match uploaded
