Bell was well known in the wrestling community for a 2001 incident with Perry Saturn during a videotaped WWF dark match . Bell botched a snapmare armdrag of Saturn, causing Saturn to land on the mat headfirst. Saturn legitimately attacked Bell in retaliation for this perceived lack of professionalism and in-ring ethic, at one point tossing Bell out of the ring and causing Bell himself to land on his head on the safety mat. Neither performer sustained serious injury, and both were able to resume their respective roles and finish the match as planned, without most spectators realizing what had actually happened.
On October 31, 1989, Wright debuted at WWF Saturday Night's Main Event as a fan cheering on Dusty Rhodes in his match against Big Boss Man .  Sapphire began to manage Dusty Rhodes, both adorned in black outfits with yellow polka dots. She along with Rhodes later on entered into a feud with "Macho Man" Randy Savage then referred to as "Macho King" and Sensational Sherri then Queen Sherri as Sapphire teamed with Rhodes to take on Savage and Sherri in a tag team match at Wrestlemania VI . Sapphire pinned Sherri, with some help from Miss Elizabeth , who had allied herself with Sapphire and Rhodes after a previous incident that precipitated the match.   Sapphire and Sherri would continue their feud competing against each other in singles and tag team matches, across the country from April 21, 1990, at the Richmond Coliseum where she lost to the Queen in a one-on-one match, up until August 25, where she and Rhodes emerged victorious as a team.  In the spring and summer of 1990, she began to receive gifts from a mysterious benefactor. At SummerSlam , Sherri defeated Sapphire via forfeit after Sapphire failed to show.  Seconds before Rhodes' match against Savage, Ted DiBiase revealed that he had bought Sapphire. A distraught Rhodes lost a quick match to Savage after being hit with Sherri's purse behind the referee's back.  Sapphire began appearing in segments where she would do favors for DiBiase, including ironing his money.  She left the WWF a short time later.  Although it was never explained why on WWF programming, Virgil revealed in an interview with WWF Magazine several months later that the ( kayfabe ) reason for her leaving was that DiBiase took all the gifts back.
