From Busch Stadium (19,000 - 14,500 paid)

- Roddy Piper, Jake Roberts, Road Warrior Hawk, and WWF IC Champion Mr. Perfect were all no shows; Piper was in Los Angeles filming a movie while the other three were injured; a match between Bret Hart and Ricky Steamboat was scheduled but the card was changed due to the no shows

1) Col. Mustafa pinned Jimmy Snuka (sub. for Hacksaw Jim Duggan)

2) Ricky Steamboat pinned Pat Tanaka

3) Kerry Von Erich fought the Warlord to a double count-out

4) Bret Hart & Virgil defeated Ted Dibiase & IRS when Hart pinned Dibiase

5) Davey Boy Smith defeated Typhoon (sub. for WWF IC Champion Mr. Perfect) via count-out

6) The Big Bossman & Road Warrior Animal defeated the Mountie & WWF Tag Team Champions the Nasty Boys in a handicap match; the bout was to have been a six-man tag but Road Warrior Hawk was injured

7) Hacksaw Jim Duggan (sub. for Jake Roberts) (w/ Andre the Giant) pinned Earthquake

8) The Ultimate Warrior defeated the Undertaker in a casket match

9) WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan pinned Sgt. Slaughter after guest referee Randy Savage came off the top onto the challenger as Hogan was caught in the Camel Clutch, moments after Slaughter threw Savage to the floor and Gen. Adnan threw powder in Hogan's face; after the bout, Hogan and Savage celebrated in the ring together

That's the same back injury he had at SummerSlam and then kept him out for a while afterwards. Back injuries can linger and are NOTHING to take lightly.

Was it the low turnout, or all the no-shows (or a combination of both) that caused this to not be released as a Coliseum Video special as was likely the plan?

Highest price ticket is 15 bucks.....can't even get nosebleed seats for that nowadays.

Yea, is a guy really a "no show" if he had a known injury and could not perform?

I stumbled over an old Coliseum Home Video clamshell box and landed on my external occipital protuberance.

Steamboat/Hart would have been fun, they had a heck of match in Boston in 86.

This show sucked! I was 15 and talked my poor mama into taking me. Had seats on the fooor that we had to turn our heads all the way to our left to see the ring. I still feel guilty to this day for doing that to my mom. I had even took a camera and was trying to get a picture of Ricky Steamboat from our crappy position and a security guard came and asked me for my batteries. Couldn't get a good pic anyway. It was my last wrestling show.

WWF in 91 was utterly horrible and this card looks like a prime example of how horrible it was.

I sat in the upper deck and saw this show. It was pretty disappointing because of the no shows and card changes. Also they didn't have the matches on the stadium screen so it was hard to see much.

Would it really have been so hard to put Kerry Von Erich over the Warlord via claw & discuss punch instead of a worthless double count out??

A crowd of 19,000 for a stadium show in 1991 was considered fine. The ring was positioned in the baseball infield and thousands of distant seats were never on sale. Wrestlemania has changed how we look at stadium shows. Now you aim to fill the house and if 60,000 turn up to a 70,000 seat facility people call it a failure. Up to WM3 and for some time afterwards most stadium shows were expected to draw in the 15,000 to 25,000 range. As for TV, you'd think the WWF wouldn't let a stadium show go by with no cameras, but no video has ever surfaced, so I'm guessing it wasn't taped. Even with 19,000 fans, you can put the hard camera at second base or so and shoot the crowd in the baseball infield stands and make it seem much bigger.

I bet Steamboat vs Tanaka was the best match of the night. Steamboat was ripping it up curtain jerking with Haku in this time frame.

Coliseum Video released a "Wrestlefest '91" Compilation tape, but none of the matches from this event were on there.
