Looking on HistoryofWWE.com it just aired on Prime Time.

For a time, WCW Saturday Night actually had a weekly "Battle of the Jobbers" match (they obviously called it something different, but it had a real name to indicate it was 2 scrubs who never win facing each other).  Joey Maggs and others like him picked up some wins here.

I think it was battle of the underdogs, I believe this was during the watts era

It made sense though to do that. Someone comes into WWF and beats Horowitz or Lombardi in their first match. So what? Everyone beats Horowitz or Lombardi.

But if they showed a few matches with Horowitz or Lombardi beating some genuine squashee, names like Jerry Seavey or Barry Houston, then beating them would mean a little more. It shows that the good jobbers are not just random blokes brought in off the street.

Talking of Horowitz, leading up to his win over Chris Candido, there was a run of matches where he was looking closer and closer to winning. That peaked on Raw with a terrific match with Jeff Jarrett, who had the IC title. The match was a non-title match and WWF made a thing that Horowitz came so close to winning that Jarrett should give him a title match.

Reluctantly Jarrett signed a contract for one, but before Horowitz could sign it, Backlund put him in the chicken wing, and signed instead.

And that seemed to be it. If they ever had a match, it was a one-off, but it looked like a more substantial angle that never went anywhere.

Not sure if these were mentioned yet but Tully's appearance in ECW. Also, Steve Austin had a brief run in ECW where he was clearly transitioning into the Stone Cold character. Dropped a cool promo on Ric Flair.

I think it was Brian Lee that close lined Gordy when he was running the ropes in his warm up jacket before the match and rag dolled him.

Stppped by long enough for the Battle of the Bam Bams against Bigelow. Might have also gotten a title shot against Raven unless I imagined that. He was a shell of his former self at this point though and had almost completely lost the ability to speak coherently.

95/96 ECW is pretty cool, I only saw bits and piece out in SoCal but it seemed like when I did catch someone major was appearing.

Around Halloween 97 I believe Douglas and Candido tagged and dressed up like their WWF personas on a house show. I have it on a fan cam show somewhere. It wasn’t a great match but it was funny to see.

I just watched a nitro from July of 96 and they played a video hyping the new 4 man group of Powers, Wright, Gomez and renegade without face paint. All walking down a beach separately taking their shirts off and then all together. They worked together that night against the dungeon (Sullivan, Morrus, barbarian and the leprechaun. Most of the match wasn’t shown because hall and Nash were taking over the backstage control booth.
