The Steiner Brothers had already defeated the Fabulous Freebirds (Michael Hayes and Jimmy Garvin) for the WCW World Tag Team Titles at a TV taping on February 18, 1991, six days before this PPV, giving the Freebirds a rare negative title reign.
The Horsemen (Flair/Windham/Sid/Zbyszko)-Sting/Pillman/Steiners War Games match was the second War Games on PPV and the first time that the heel team, in this case the Horsemen, won it, something that would not happen again until the NWO-WCW War Games at WCW Fall Brawl 96.
The Young Pistols (Tracy Smothers/Steve Armstrong)-Royal Family (Jack Victory/Rip Morgan) match was the first time that the Smothers/Armstrong team were billed as the Young Pistols rather than as the Southern Boys.
During the original PPV, during the War Games match. When Rick Steiner has Sid Vicious in the corner you can clearly hear Sid say " is he ready, ok let's go" calling a spot for the next set of moves. Which the WWE Network has edited out of their broadcast as of 2015
