I’ll take every single march to WrestleMania or countdown show they ever ran. Shows like these are what make the network awesome for me.

Regarding Italian Stallion doing jobs on WWF TV in the early to mid 1990s, he did that a fair amount when they were in or relatively close to the Carolinas. At one of these tapings, he brought Matt and Jeff Hardy with him in 1994 when Jeff was just 16 and Matt was 19 or 20. This was the first time the WWF and the Hardys got put together.

I vaguely remember Ben Jordan having the slightest degree of indy buzz for a little while, but he never made it.  Tony DeVito of course was a long-time WWF jobber who eventually got a minor push in ECW with Da Baldies and then did northeast indies forever after ECW closed.  He might still be doing them. He tried to kick me out of the backstage area at an indy show in 2001-2002 and then threw a guy into my lap during his match.

Should I not have called him a guinea jobber?  Maybe wop carpenter?

Jordan was in Memphis for a couple of stints in the early to mid 1990s.

In the tag team title match against the Quebecers were PJ Walker, who would soon become Aldo Montoya and later Justin Credible, and Mike Bell.

Bell did jobber work on and off for the WWF from the early 1990s into the Attitude Era. He is likely best remembered for a match around 2001 or 2002 against Perry Saturn on whatever the syndicated B show was called at the time. They got crossed up on a spot and Saturn went nuts, laying into Bell with some stiff kicks and punches, throwing him out of the ring to land dangerously on his head, and then tossing him hard into the steps. The match then resumed with Saturn winning with the planned finish. It was somewhat surprising that the beat down aired when it could've been edited out or the match simply not aired, but the average fan might not have realized what happened and in context of the work, it made Saturn seem like a dangerous and somewhat crazy heel. Because Bell had been around the WWF as a jobber for ages and was known as a vet indy guy who blew a spot rather than some indy high spot wannabe or guy two weeks out of wrestling school, the likes of Undertaker and the APA weren't impressed with Saturn. The WWF turned into an angle and had the APA beat up Saturn stiffly on TV the next week.

Ben Jordan won the Global light heavyweight title from Barry Horowitz in a particularly stupid fashion - the stip was Horowitz had to beat Jordan in ten minutes, otherwise Jordan would get the belt.  Talk about undermining your own promotion.

Basically from this point on (if I recall all these years later) Saturn was not put in any positive positions, correct?  He in essence became a Jobber to the Stars after this beating I think.

After the Mike Bell incident and the APA beat down, Perry Saturn got something of a push still, but rather than being portrayed as a credible midcarder who could be in the mix for the European Title or IC Title, he got Moppy and a retard babyface gimmick. That went on for a few months after which Saturn was someone who put over bigger stars or got wins over other going nowhere guys. He tore his ACL in the spring of 2002, less than a year after the Bell deal, and never wrestled in the WWE again. He was released later that year while still on the shelf due to knee surgery.

I watched the HBK v Austin match from today’s hidden gem drop and it’s a fun 27 minutes. Austin is in full million dollar champ mode and HBK has Jose in tow. Before the match the ring announcer hyped the weekly superstars broadcast in the surrounding markets on the different Fox channels.
