I don't remember any matches coming from this.


I even read the 'stuff everybody forgot' thread. Nothing. Nada. Nunca. Zippo. Zero.

I looked over at thehistoryofwwe.com this aired the weekend of 8/17/91 .  After Summerslam Warrior was gone.  Between the 8/17/91  and Summerslam it was Warrior vs Taker Matches. Roberts and Warrior never had a match from what I could find out.

Yeah Warrior left before the feud could start. This was a bizarre little vignette, something akin to an early Broken Universe skit. Roberts did his best to make it work and seem sinister though. Warrior's overacting was funny. I have not re-watched the clip here, I'm going entirely from memories from 25 years ago.

Didn't Warrior get popped for steroids and they sent him home because they didn't want heat with the Zakorian trial? Or am I off by a year. All I remember is that for a time both Warrior and Macho Man wrestled in airbrushed shirts during and after the trial.

Yeah that was in 92. He and Bulldog both got canned before Survivor Series. That summer Warrior started wearing a flesh colored singlet with muscles airbrushed on it, I guess to look "bigger". Savage wrestled in a top from about 1991 until he went to WCW.

The Giant Gonzalez look was all the rage in the '90s.  That's high fashion.
