  • Brutus Beefcake becomes Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake

  • Greg "The Hammer" Valentine formed the "New Dream Team" with Dino Bravo

  • Paul Orndorff eventually fires Bobby Heenan for the 2nd time.

  • "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan continually followed Nikolai Volkoff making sure he didn't sing the Russian National anthem.

  • The Islanders wrestled the Can-Am Connection in a face vs. face match.  Inexplicably, the Islanders played the role of heels during the match and purposely injure Tom Zenk.  Bobby Heenan steps in to manage the Islanders afterward and Tito Santana steps in to be Martel's partner.  Santana and Martel become "Strikeforce" and begin a feud with the Islanders.
