The first Survivor Series pay-per-view saw the first female elimination match.
Marlena and Sable were just as sexualized as Sunny, with Marlena suggestively smoking cigars at ringside during matches and Sable coming to the ring in form-fitting leather catsuits.
Marlena was the manager of Goldust, her then real-life husband, Chyna was offered as an antithesis to the rest of the Divas, a masculine bodybuilder whose sexual identity was the subject of early storylines.
When the WWF phased out its female-talent roster in 1990, Sensational Sherri remained with the company, joining Sapphire (who then departed from the company in mid 1990) and Miss Elizabeth focusing on managing male wrestlers.
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.
Sunny (Tammy Sytch) debuted in 1995 as the manager of The Bodydonnas.
Sunny's character was at first a continuation of the female manager that had been popular throughout the 1980s and early 1990s.
Sapphire debuted in November 1989 on Saturday Night's Main Event as a 'fan' cheering on Dusty Rhodes at ringside in his match against Big Boss Man.
Sapphire began to manage Rhodes, who adapted Rhodes' gimmick as she adorned black outfits with yellow polka dots.
Over time, the character was significantly sexualized, whereas prior female managers, such as Miss Elizabeth, were depicted as being involved in either platonic or romantic storylines.
Between 19, Marlena, Sable, and Chyna joined Sunny as prominent female on-air talent in the promotion.
Also in 1987 Mike Mc Guirk was introduced as the first female ring announcer of the promotion, arriving after Jesse Ventura referred her to the WWF.
