Another "Old School" WWF show, this time from Madison Square Garden in April 1991. Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan are joined by Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart on commentary. The final match saw Roddy Piper battle Ted DiBiase. Piper had been training/managing Virgil going into WrestleMania. I don't remember the story but Piper had had a leg injury and had been using a single crutch. Well at some point before this match, DiBiase would steal the crutch and bring it with him to ringside. This was Piper's first televised match in 1991. Sensational Sherri, who was now managing DiBiase would get involved in this match at one point attempting to pull him out of the ring only to be dragged in herself. The finish would come when DiBiase would apply a Figure-4 to the injured leg of Piper and the referee stopped the match. Howard Finkel started his announcement of the decision with the fact that Piper did NOT submit, then stated that the referee stopped the match to prevent further injury.

The main event (which as was common at shows like this went on right before intermission) saw Hulk Hogan vs Sgt. Slaughter in a rematch from WrestleMania for the WWF Championship. Hogan came into this match with a bandage on his forehead and, much like WrestleMania, he gets busted open in this match and bleeds bad. This was mostly a brawl both in and out of the ring. At one point the referee gets knocked out, then Slaughter gets a chair handed to him by General Adnan and bashes the already down referee with it. Hogan manages to wrestle the chair away from Slaughter and takes a few swipes at him. The referee comes to, sees Hogan with the chair and disqualifies him. Hogan loses but keeps the belt. This would set up their "Desert Storm Match" (basically a no holds barred match) at the next MSG show.

This event featured the (gimmick) in-ring debut of IRS going up against Superfly Jimmy Snuka. He comes to the ring in a full suit, jacket and all. Removes the jacket before the match and also removes the pants revealing black trunks with the letters "IRS" in red and what at first looks like sheer pantyhose but upon further examination is actually gold/bronze colored tights. Not a good look. Texas Tornado vs The Warlord would deliver us classic Bobby Heenan as he states that Warlord is stronger than Tornado, Gorilla responds by saying that Texas Tornado is smarter and brains wins out over brawn, to which Bobby Heenan replies with "He can't be smarter than The Warlord. He's from Texas."

Also on the card the return of Ricky Steamboat, now known simply as "The Dragon" where he comes to the ring in "dragon" attire and carrying a torch and then "breathes" fire by spitting onto the torch (he would later say how much he disliked the liquid that he had to hold in his mouth in order to spit on the fire. Also Mr. Fuji dons the tights teaming with his Orient Express against Virgil & The Rockers. This match is a showcase for Virgil as he gets the win with the Million Dollar Dream on Tanaka. Plus, there are a couple of forgettable matches with Big Bossman vs The Mountie and Bushwhackers vs Power & Glory.

G.O.D. vs. Hikuleo & El Phantasmo. New Beginning in Sapporo. Tama Tonga tries a side headlock on Hikuleo, who lifts Tama up for a suplex. Tama baseball slides under Hikuleo's big boot attempt. A battle of victory rolls takes place between Phantasmo and Tonga Loa. It then becomes a shoving match between Phantasmo and referee Jado. Since this was Tama's last match in NJPW and he's related to Hikuleo, they didn't take the match too seriously.

GOD execute a Magic Killer on Hikuleo. Hikuleo powerbombs Tama Tonga and finishes him off with the Godsend.
