Dusty Rhodes, Ivan Koloff, Superstar Billy Graham. I am sure there are others.

For the purposes of this let's say when Backlund loses the title although I think somewhere around 1982 is the actual time-window.

Hogab did also get a shot at Backlund in 80 and everyone knows the famous AWA Title matches he had with Bockwinkel.

Where Crusher's matches against Bruno in Pittsburgh in the mid 60's WWWF title matches?
He faced Rogers and Thesz for the NWA title and had many AWA title matches.

I'm heading down to obtain a FOIA subpoena to present to Vince so I can get the exact dates and provide the exact answers to this question. I wouldn't want to put in a guy who got a title shot in the WWF on March 15 if they didn't become the WWF until March 17. That would ruin the integrity of the thread.
