WCW started a few guys on winning streaks in 1998. Wrath, Scott Norton and Mike Enos off the top of my head, but there were probably more. They weren't counting the wins, but they did make a point to mention on commentary that these guys were on winning streaks. It was either lazy booking because Goldberg had been so successful, or the idea was for Goldberg to end all their streaks. After Goldberg won the world title, this seemed to end, since, as something only WCW could have done, Goldberg's push ended when he won the title, and pretty much all his matches were clusterfucks until he lost the title.

Early ECW had a Pennsylvania and Maryland championship.

When Paul Wight first joined the WWF he was temporarily nicknamed the Big Nasty. 

"Real American" was first used by Mike Rotundo and Barry Windham.

Randy Culley was the original Smash In Demolition and Johnny V was their original manager.

Cpl. Kirchner was originally spelled Kirschner and the vignette of him swimming with a knife in his teeth ended with him introducing himself and spelling his name. The video was later edited, removing the "S".

Towards the end of his run as the Texas Tornado, Kerry von Erich was referred to on WWF programming as Kerry von Erich. It was as if they were going more "real" and trying to drop the Tornado persona.

The team of Steve Lombardi and Barry Horowitz once got a televised win. Against Lanny Poffo and Scott Casey.

The Great Muta was billed as "Mota" when he first arrived in WCW

Was he originally from the Dominican and related to manny?

I do remember that Gary Hart did bill him as Great Kabuki’s son since Hart managed Kabuki in WCCW for so many years. I’m not sure if any WCW fans at the time cared though.

After Ed Wiskoski had established the Mega Maharishi cult character in Portland Wrestling in 1985, based on the regional movement and the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, someone in Memphis decided they should copy it. I forget who portrayed Memphis Maharishi but it didn't last...like most Memphophenalia.

I always liked that aspect.  The story was that Kabuki was swindled into signing the rights to his first born son's career over to Hart.

Good Lord!  I really liked Poffo & Casey prior to joining the WWF.  At that point they must have realized they were never getting a push as wrestlers.

Amazing that they used 7 and a half minutes of TV time for a match with four jobbers.

It was Prime Time Wrestling...You had a lot of matches like that. They had 2 hours to kill.

If it was a prime time exclusive I’m not surprised but if it aired on superstars or challenge I would be. I love watching prime time but it had a lot of bad matches.
