This Week In 90’s Wrestling: March 22 – March 28


WWF Prime Time Wrestling was a low-key show focused on allowing the events of Wrestlemania VII to sink in. The reunited Randy Savage and Elizabeth shared a tender moment on a dance floor, while Koko B. Ware and Vince McMahon had an anything-but-tender moment there, with Vince trying hard to show his soulful side while dancing.

AJW held the Queendom card in Yokohama in front of 9,000 fans. In the main event, Manami Toyota ended the two-year-plus reign of Aja Kong as WWWA World Champion, defeating her in a ****1/4 match. Also on the show, Lioness Asuka and Yumiko Hotta had a ***3/4 fake shootfight that was quite the spectacle.

All Japan continued the Championship Carnival in Matsumoto before a sellout 3,200 fans. In the main event, Mitsuharu Misawa defeated Kenta Kobashi in a ****1/2 match.

All Japan continued the Championship Carnival in Chiba, where Toshiaki Kawada faced Jun Akiyama in a ***1/4 match.

NWO dissension continued on WCW Thunder, as Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash were publicly at odds for the first time. Nash asked Hogan why his buddy Syxx no longer had a job, and Hogan claimed that it was not his fault Syxx could not “cut the mustard”. Hogan and Nash later teamed against Sting and Lex Luger in the main event. The show did a 4.4 rating.
