I’ll throw this one out there as I just watched this show the other night and had totally forgotten this.  The Young Stallions got a title shot against the Hart Foundation on Saturday Nights Main Event and actually came within an eyelash of getting the pinfall victory.
This was the October 1987 show with the uniting of the Megapowers.

Johnny Polo calling Vince McMahon "Vic" when they co-hosted one of the syndicated shows.

Rather than All Japan perennials like Stan Hansen and Steve Williams, I'm thinking about Ray Traylor going there as Big Bubba Rogers after leaving the WWF and his Big Bossman gimmick behind in 1993, but before going to WCW later that year. Another one was Ted DiBiase. He left the WWF after Summerslam '93 and started touring with All Japan. He'd have likely been still wrestling there as late as the Pro Wrestling NOAH breakaway at which point he was in his mid 40s, but suffered a neck injury and wound up retiring before 1993 was done.
Traylor was awesome in AJPW.

They actually beat them in a non-title match to set this up. One of the biggest upsets in WWE history.

Yep, they beat them on Superstars of Wrestling that summer. The Harts lost to the Stallions that summer and the Killer Bees. Trying to recall without looking it up... I think the Bees win happened first via pinfall after they used the masks. The Stallions may have been a funky reverse decision with Mr T coming down to reverse the call. Good stuff. Then of course those two teams ended up co-winners in the Survivor Series.

The Young Stallions got a nice push in the early fall of 1987 as change of pace opponents for the Hart Foundation since the British Bulldogs and their feud with the Harts was played out, the Killer Bees were also played out, the WWF hadn't yet figured out what to do with the Rougeaus, and Strike Force had just become a team and were getting established ahead of getting the belts. It was over by the time WM4 passed.

I know things are different now a days but I used to enjoy seeing the champs lose a non title match or have a series of matches that ended in draws or count outs to build the challenger. All of which made the Hart’s non title loss to Arn and Tully at SS89 all that more surprising. 

And speaking of Traylor in AJPW it was great to see him wearing his Bossman gimmick in the ring with The AJPW stars.

Hornswoggle once escaped from Carlito by painting a door onto the dressing room wall.

Regarding the Young Stallions, it occurred to me that the reason for their mini feud with the Hart Foundation, which included the SNME match and a month or so of house show bouts, was that Jimmy Hart sang an upbeat pop/rock song called "Crank It Up" on "Piledriver: The Wrestling Album 2" with the intention that it would be the entrance music for the tag team champs only for Roma and Powers to swipe it for themselves. I think Roma was using it on and off as his music almost until he turned heel to join Hercules in Power & Glory in mid 1990, nearly three years later.

Jim Powers hung around in the WWF until 1994...still using "Crank it Up" the whole time!

Another one of those things that happened that few remember PG-13 appearing on Monday Night Raw back in 1995. The WWF had a shallow talent pool at the time and especially on the tag team side of things. The Smoking Gunns won the WWF Tag Team Title from Owen Hart and Yokozuna on the live 9/25/95 Raw. At the same taping, in an episode taped for 10/2/95, PG-13 debuted by winning squash over Sonny Rogers and Al Brown. On the episode taped for 10/9/95 they did an inset interview challenging the Gunns for the title. In the fourth and final Raw from that taping which aired on 10/16/95, the Gunns beat PG-13 to retain the title. JC Ice and Wolfie D then returned to Memphis and weren't mentioned again. When they came back to the WWF in November of 1996 as sidekicks for Faarooq and the first members of the Nation of Domination, their previous WWF matches were not acknowledged even though it was a year or so earlier and they used the same names and gimmick.

As I remember it, when PG-13 were the rappers for the NOD, they were never mentioned by name, except for giving themselves a name check in their entrance rap. The commentators never named them and their team name was never used.

Goldberg was billed as being from "Parts Unknown" for a while in 1998.
