Miss Elizabeth's first major angle was during Savage's feud with George "The Animal" Steele in 1986.In the angle, Steele fell in love with Elizabeth, angering Savage and leading to a series of grudge matches between him and Steele.Additionally, the WWF also recognized Moolah as having been champion ever since first winning the title from Judy Grable in 1956 and disregarded other reigns or title losses that occurred during the title's existence in the NWA.Thus, The Fabulous Moolah's reign was considered to have lasted 27 years by the promotion.In the fall of 1987, Mc Guirk provided color commentary for several arena show tapings in the Houston, Texas area, which aired on Prime Time Wrestling.The first Survivor Series pay-per-view saw the first female elimination match.
When the WWF phased out its female-talent roster in 1990, Sensational Sherri remained with the company, joining Sapphire (who then departed from the company in mid 1990) and Miss Elizabeth focusing on managing male wrestlers.
In February 1989, the WWF Women's Tag Team Championship was deactivated and The Glamour Girls (Leilani Kai and Judy Martin) were the final title holders.
Sapphire debuted in November 1989 on Saturday Night's Main Event as a 'fan' cheering on Dusty Rhodes at ringside in his match against Big Boss Man.
Richter then lost the title to Leilani Kai the following year, but won it back at Wrestle Mania I on March 31, 1985.
In the summer of 1985, the WWF did a storyline where all established managers in the promotion competed to offer their services to Randy Savage.
