Fox Sports 1 is set to air the classic SummerSlam 1992 event next week. The event notably featured WWE Hall of Famer, Sensational Sherri.
FS1 is continuing its trend of airing classic WWE events on Tuesday nights. SummerSlam 1992 from London’s Wembley Stadium will be airing next Tuesday, July 21 at 9 PM EST.
SummerSlam 1992 was the first-ever WWE pay-per-view held in the UK. Whilst no female matches featured on the card, WWE Hall of Famer Sensational Sherri played a prominent role in the match between Shawn Michaels and Rick Martel.
Sherri was a true trailblazer for WWE’s female superstars of today. A staple in the organization’s women’s division during the 1980s, in 1987 she defeated The Fabulous Moolah to capture the WWE Women’s Championship. She would hold on to the title for fifteen-months before dropping it to Rockin’ Robin. In 1990 when the WWE phased out its women’s division, Sherri remained with the company and performed as a manager for male superstars. In 2006, she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
On June 15, 2007, Sherri Martel sadly passed away at the age of 47. Her legacy still lives on in the world of professional wrestling.
