Miss Elizabeth took a leave of absence in 1990, but returned in 1991 and was a key player in Randy Savage's retirement match with The Ultimate Warrior at Wrestle Mania VII; Elizabeth left the company for good in 1992; shortly after her departure, Savage and Elizabeth divorced in real life.
Sapphire and Rhodes later feuded with Randy Savage and Sensational Sherri and wrestled in a tag team match at Wrestle Mania VI.
Meanwhile, Savage became allied with "Sensational" Sherri, who had success as a wrestler from 1987–1989 and was phased into a role as an ill-tempered, venomous valet.
Sherri initially debuted on July 24, 1987 by defeating The Fabulous Moolah for the WWF Women's Championship.
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.
