Ole Anderson started wrestling as "Rock" Rogowski in the mid 60's and his nickname was unofficially "The Rock" for years.

Ole Anderson drifted away from JCP in May of 1987 as his feud with the Four Horsemen ran its course (this is when he teamed with Tim Horner for a couple of weeks) bar a July 11, 1987 card in Greensboro when the promotion had a multicard night and needed extra guys. Out of nowhere, Ole ran in to save the newly babyface turned Lex Luger from the Horsemen at the 12/25/87 Omni show. JCP went right back to the Omni on 1/1/88 with Ole and Lex vs. Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson. The same two teams met at the 1/31/88 Omni card. They met again on 2/14/88 in a cage match at the Omni. Then on 2/28/88 it was Ole, Luger, and Dusty Rhodes vs. Ric Flair, Tully, and Arn at the Omni. During February and March they took Ole and partners vs. combinations of Four Horsemen members to a few JCP core towns. Ole made a WTBS studio appearance or two to cut promos for the Omni cards. He didn't wrestle in squashes and didn't work the syndicated tapings. It was really just a local Atlanta thing that got some national exposure via the Superstation. It was largely forgotten or unnoticed at the time.

I feel these are fairly well-known amongst smarks, but:

-Sivi Afi as "High Chief Afi", the third Islander in 1988

-Jos LeDuc as "The Headbanger" in the WWF around the same time. In the States, I think he only wrestled on Prime Time, where the graphics listed him as "Butcher LeDuc". He was also at King Haku's TV coronation on the syndicated weeklies, with no acknowledgment of who he was by the commentators.

-Marc Mero wrestled as "Johnny B. Badd", with the confetti gun and everything for TNA, circa 2004. TNA did a LOT of these one-time appearances, but this one always struck me as especially weird.

-Shotgun Saturday Night taking place in New York City's Penn Station in 1997.

-"Adorable" Adrian Adonis standing up on TNT and saying: "yes, I AM GAY"...then getting a chorus of boo's from the audience. Aside from the reaction, I bring it up because most folks forgot/didn't know that Adonis' character actually proclaimed that he was, in fact, "gay".

-Dusty Rhodes turning and joining the nWo in 1998.

-Kevin Von Erich getting to slap the CLAW on Rob Conway on Monday Night RAW, sometime in 2005-2006.

Terry Daniels got a world tag-team title shot in July 1984 against Adonis and Murdoch. Slaughter was his teammate. And the match was absolutely great. Just watched it last night. Total hidden gem. Daniels was great playing the super talented underdog.

Murdoch and especially Adonis were great bumping for underdogs too. I didn’t see the match but I tend to think they deserve credit for trying to get Daniels over. Where do I find the match?

I got it from our dvd guy here.  It's the July 23, 1984 MSG card with Moolah losing the title to Wendy Richter.  It might be on Daily Motion or Youtube too.
Daniels keeps going back to this armdrag takedown on Adonis and Murdoch, and the crowd is eating it up.  At one point he almost pinned Adonis with a cross-body (2 and 9/10ths count) and Gorilla says, "no, no, he didn't get him".
Adonis backbody drops Daniels at one point, and Terry does a complete 360 and lands on his feet, kinda stumbles into the ropes but then comes back and sneaks up behind Adonis, and as Adonis turns around, another deep arm drag takedown.  Crowd goes batshit.
It's a great match.

I was going through some Prime Times on the Network, and on one from Dec. 1987 Craig DeGeorge interviews the tag team of Junkyard Dog and Koko B. Ware.

Shawn Michaels was once a special guest referee for an FMW match involving Hayabusa.

The WCW World Tag Team Title tournament in early 1999 was a double elimination tournament. That's the only instance of a double elimination tournament that I know of in wrestling.

WCW having a Women's Cruiserweight championship.

Eddie Guerrero wrestling for WCW in 1989.

Kendall Windham and Butch Reed kinda sorta being Horsemen. 

Brian Adams was the original KISS Demon before Jeff Torborg.

Bruce Prichard's short lived Reo Rogers character in the WWF.

Kerry Von Erich, Davey Boy Smith, and Jim Neidhart wrestling in very early ECW. And for that matter, Neidhart in WCW in the early 90s.

Corey Graves was once a decent commentator

Ok, just kidding, that never actually happened

If you watched every WCW TV show every week, but only that, and didn't read newsletters or the internet, you would have seen the semi-finals of the tournament, but would never have found out who won, since the final was a dark match.

There was an ECW TV show before the one that is on the WWE Network. If you look at the history of the ECW TV title, it goes back to before Snuka won it. The opening credits of the very early shows on the Network use clips from those shows, including Neidhart, who doesn't appear on any of the shows on the Network.
