At "WrestleMania V", she sang "America the Beautiful." Backstage, Sherri took the opportunity to mock her. Robin continued to defend the Women's title against Martin throughout the summer of 1989. Robin held the championship until 1990, when she left the company, and the title was retired by the WWF. The title remained inactive until 1993.

On June 9, 1991, Robin defeated Candi Devine to become the first UWF Women's Champion at UWF Beach Brawl, the company's first and only pay-per-view.

Robin also competed in the Ladies' Professional Wrestling Association (LPWA). She formed a tag team with former WWF Women's Champion Wendi Richter and competed at LPWA's only PPV: LPWA Super Ladies Showdown.
