I completely forgot about the Royal Rumble 1990 to set up the Dusty/Sapphire vs  Macho/Sherri feud.

As a follow up to Rude's attack on Piper on the show, Piper did the "Dope on a Rope" thing with BL.

Paul Bearer was introduced as Undertaker's new manager.

The brief Texas Tornado/Ted DiBiase feud also kicked off on Brother Love when Kerry came out to help Dustin Rhodes. That led to DiBiase becoming the special ring announcer for the IC title match between he and Perfect and costing him the belt.

I forgot the Kerry/DiBiase angle on the Brother Love Show. DiBiase was running down Dustin and Texas, so Kerry ran in, smacked DiBiase, and yelled something like: "I'm from Texas, too!"

I'd mention the WrestleMania V Bro Love Show... but the less about that, the better.

FWIW, Love also did some special house show performances. Some were televised on stuff like MSG. Like a fall 1989 Show, where they stirred up more stuff between Hacksaw and Macho Man for their feud. Notable, because Miss Elizabeth appeared...and at one point Bro Love cornered her in the ring and was excited to "tell (her) all about love."

I don't think anything significant started on these shows, though. It was usually just stuff to keep feuds simmering. I saw one in Denver in March 1989 that was the unofficial return of Roddy Piper.

Taking Brother Love on the road was a plus for the WWF because he had more heat than all but a few guys on the roster and billing him for an arena more or less was a promise to fans that he was going to take a beating, albeit a mild one.

The last ever edition of The Brother Love Show in the 1988-91 era was Ultimate Warrior building up the "career ending match" with Randy Savage at WM7 by ending Brother Love's career. Warrior destroyed the set, chased Brother Love to ringside, and then hit him with his clothesline, shoulder block, and splash spots. Brother Love did a stretcher job and the gimmick wasn't seen again for many years. The end of Brother Love at this point was because Bruce Prichard had fallen out with Vince McMahon and had major heat on himself in the office with others for reasons I don't recall. He left the WWF for a while after this, spending some time down in Dallas with the GWF in its early stages when Joe Pedicino was running things.

I remember that one well. Warrior said he was going to "start ending careers, right now" and launched into attack mode. I had hoped that Piper's return, about two years earlier, would signal the end of the Brother Love Show and return of Piper's Pit. Mildly similar to the Piper's Pit vs. Flower Shop thing. When Piper did the "dope on a rope" segment, I thought that may have been the end of the Brother Love Show. Nope--- more than a year to go.

Honestly, I thought Brother Love sounded funny...at first.  Heenan cut a promo, the week before, about this amazing new guy who was coming to the WWF. Then in his first-ever televised segment, Love rambled on and on and on (and on) about "luuuuvvvv". So when the Bossman attack happened, it finally gave the segment some significance.
Also helped that the Brother Love Show had moved to "Superstars" from "Challenge" around that time. Maybe with the post-SummerSlam "fall season"?
