After Flair lost a retirement match to Hogan, there were rumors that Martel was going to be paired with Steve Austin , but Austin was soon injured and on his way out of WCW at the time (Martel had previously managed Flair and Austin in tag team matches. She was also scheduled to manage Austin and Shane Douglas in a tag team match in ECW, but Austin was replaced by Brian Pillman due to his knee injury). Behind the scenes, Kevin Sullivan wanted her to be the manager of Ron Simmons , but this was during the time of the Nicole Brown and . Simpson investigation, so they thought that might be pushing it. Instead, Martel began managing Harlem Heat ( Booker T and Stevie Ray ) using the name Sister Sherri.
