When I last left off, the Rock N’ Wrestling Connection hit its climax with the famous battle between Wendi Richter and Fabulous Moolah.  But great angles never end in one match alone.  It’s kind of like that great Hollywood classic movie, there just has to be a sequel.  So the aftermath of this angle occurred immediately after the match itself in the locker room celebration.  Cyndi Lauper and her “real” manager David Wolfe were there being interviewed by “Mean” Gene Okerlund, when who should show up but the reigning World Champion himself, Hulk Hogan (you just knew his ego wouldn’t let him sit on the sidelines for the greatest angle of all time).  He stopped by to congratulate the new champion and said he was going to personally see to it that Moolah’s face is taken of the Ladies World Title belt and that Richter’s face is put there instead (which never happened but at least Richter did get a new belt).  Then who should show up but Capt. Lou Albano, who did one of his usual tirades saying the match was a fluke, and that Wendi cheated, until Hogan popped him in the head and he left. The skit was actually hilarious, as Albano usually was.

Just if you’re keeping score at home, Hogan was there to defend his title against Greg Valentine that night, so his appearance wasn’t just a coincidence.  The whole card was eventually aired on USA as a “Special Wrestling Event” about three weeks after it originally took place.  And the final match of the night was a 20-man battle royal (probably so Hogan wouldn’t get jealous that the ladies title match took precedence over his own).

Gorilla Monsoon (the WWF head booker at that time) seemed lost on where to go from here.  They had no ladies division to provide challengers for Richter and rematches would only take them so far. They did hold a famous rematch on “Saturday Night’s Main Event” at one point, and several others took place around the circuit.  David Wolfe stuck around the area to manage some newcomers who wanted a recording contract in The Fabulous Freebirds.  But the Freebirds didn’t last long in the WWF and neither did Mr. Wolfe. 

Finally, they found a new challenger in Judy Martin.  One week on USA’s “All American Wrestling”  (did Vince McMahon have vested interests in cable television at this time or what?) Martin debuted to challenge Richter for her Ladies World Title.    More...
