Tuesday in Texas 1991

Hey, Scott. Question for the blog…

I was watching the Tuesday in Texas PPV. Survivor Series 1991 was the first PPV I ever ordered. I was maybe 13 at the time. I was a fairly new fan, and wasn't aware of their PPV rotation yet, but I knew that WWF only did PPV once every 3 or 4 months. I remember they had been teasing that Survivor Series would be Macho Man's reinstatement, so he could replace Sid Justice in the main event. But right from the opening, they say (in the form of Jack Tunney) that not only will Savage not be appearing in the match, but Jake will be out as well. This was basically the hottest feud on the card at the time, and now it's not happening? But they will indeed be having a match "this Tuesday night, in Texas." Ok, that was kind

​ ​

of weird. Then we get a screwjob finish in the title match with Hogan and Taker, only to be teased for their rematch, "this Tuesday night in Texas." And they don't even announce that the show will be available on PPV until much later in night.

So my question is, what was the point of that? Just to simply milk more money from the PPV buys? I remember it was much shorter, and I would assume didn't cost as much to order. Was this their first try at what would later become In Your House? And I've also heard that after the lame finish to Team Piper vs Team Flair at Survivor Series, that the two had a singles match un-televised before the Tuesday in Texas PPV went to air. Why not put that on the actual PPV, instead of giving us Bulldog vs Warlord?

Thanks!

​Yeah, this was a pretty big experiment at the time, trying to see if something like what became TNA's weekly PPV idea would fly. They basically did the show on a shoestring budget with no advertising just to see if they COULD milk another few million dollars out of the top programs.  And the answer proved to be "yes, sort of" because it kind of annoyed the cable companies and they abandoned the concept until In Your House.  
As for the Flair-Piper match, I'm assuming they didn't want to kill the house show business that the match was doing at the time, especially on a show that was only 90 minutes and didn't have any advertising anyway.  That being said, a three-match show with Hogan-UT, Savage-Roberts and Flair-Piper would have been pretty killer, so it might have been a better idea to just run it there.  ​
