WrestleMania VII was the seventh annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). It took place on March 24, 1991 at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California.
WrestleMania VII was originally supposed to be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, but it was decided to move the event to the adjacent Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. The World Wrestling Federation's stated reason for the venue change was that a threat had been issued towards the company in the wake of Sgt. Slaughter's portrayal of an Iraqi sympathizer; others have cited slow ticket sales.
The tagline for the event was "Superstars and Stripes Forever," and is remembered for its theme of American patriotism. American flags were hung all over the arena and the ring apron and banners were colored red, white, and blue, which was the basis for the main event between Hulk Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter for the WWF Championship. WrestleMania VII is remembered for the emotional reunion between "Macho Man" Randy Savage and his manager, Miss Elizabeth, which occurred following "The Ultimate Warrior getting his Ultimate Win" (as Henry Winkler put it on the broadcast) over Savage in a "Retirement Match". The theme song to this event, "Worldwide Spectacle", was written by WWF's internal composer, Jim Johnston.
