10 Things You Didn't Know About WWE In 1990
The beginning of a memorable decade.
As we have seen from previous installments, sometimes the biggest stories in WWF/E happen off screen rather than on screen. Last time, in 1991, we learned about the identity of the mysterious Mariner, Typhoon and Shawn Michaels continued to wrestle as babyfaces after their heel turns, the Hart Foundation briefly reunited in Madison Square Garden, and Andre The Giant was scheduled to make an in-ring return, among other tidbits. In this installment, we take a look at 1990, the beginning of a pivotal decade in WWE's history. The Rock N Wrestling era of the 1980s, led by Hulk Hogan, was in the process of being phased out, giving rise to a new generation of wrestlers.

With so much happening on- and off-screen, youd think you would know everything that went on backstage in the WWF, but youd be wrong. There are plenty of little nuggets of trivia that came from this year. Some of these you may have also known about, but simply forgot. Here are 10 things you didnt know about the WWF in 1990.
