Wrestlers that repeated an angle they were previously involved in during a run in a different territory. For example:

Greg Valentine breaks Wahoo McDaniel's (Native American wrestler) leg in Mid Atlantic. Later, Valentine breaks Chief Jay Strongbow's (another Native American wrestler) leg in WWF.

Dusty Rhodes loses a loser leaves town match to Kevin Sullivan, returns to Florida under a mask as the Midnight Rider. Rhodes later gets suspended from World Championship Wrestling and then re-emerges under a mask again as the Midnight Rider.

Jimmy Valiant got his beard cut off by Paul Jones and his crew back in JCP around 1984. They made a big deal about him having grown it out without cutting it since his son was born. When Jimmy was in Memphis 1990, some heel there cut his beard, possibly Jerry Lawler, and the same deal about him growing it out since his son was born was brought up.

In 1984 in Mid-South, the Rock & Roll Express were going to face the Midnight Express in a match that would feature Jim Cornette wearing a straight jacket to keep him from interfering. To demonstrate how it would work, Ricky Morton strapped Robert Gibson into the jacket on TV. Once Robert was incapacitated, Cornette ran in with Condrey and Eaton to triple team Morton. In 1988 in JCP, they reran this angle with The Fantastics. Once Bobby Fulton was in the straight jacket, Cornette ran in with Eaton and Lane to destroy Tommy Rogers.

David Von Erich beat Jimmy Garvin in World Class to get Garvin and Sunshine as his valets for a day in 1983, leading to skits with Garvin and Sunshine doing all sorts of manual labor and whining throughout. In 1986 or 1987, the UWF had The Missing Link beat either John Tatum or Eddie Gilbert, whichever Missy Hyatt was with at the time, to make Missy valet for a day for Dark Journey, complete with the same type of skits with Missy whining her way through doing laundry and cleaning the floors.

Cornette did the cake gimmick in a few territories.

In Georgia Championship Wrestling, the Iron Sheik attacks Dick Murdoch while Murdoch was trying to win the Persian Club Challenge resulting in a feud all over the territory.

Approximately a year later, Iron Sheik attacks Bob Backlund while Backlund was attempting the Persian Club Challenge. Sheik injures Backlund's neck and shoulder during the attack which is further injured by the Masked Superstar's swinging neckbreaker in an MSG match. Backlund ultimately loses the title to the Iron Sheik when Backlund's manager throws in the towel to protect Backlund's neck from further damage while he is trapped in the Sheik's camel clutch,

Dick the Bruiser would have heat with a tag team and would take on a partner of dubious talent to challenge them. His partners included Super Brucie and George Ringo, the wrestling Beatle. Not in different territories but the same bit in the WWA. Almost always this was an attempt to get at Bobby Heenan who managed the heel team in the feud.

Pepper Gomez and the cast iron stomach leap off the top rope into the throat by a frustrated heel after the stomach proved too formidable.  I think he did it in the AWA, Bruiser WWA and San Francisco.

Did Cornette do the loser wears a diaper/dress in both the UWF and Georgia/Mid Atlantic?

Ric Flair did the amateur wrestling angle where he was pinned by Roddy Piper in JCP and in Florida by Barry Windham.

Gordy vs Hayes in a cage. Gordy wins the match Heels come in the ring. Heels want to Gordy to cut Hayes hair. Gordy doesn't want to do it. Heels about to cut Hayes Hair but Gordy attacks them before they can. Turning Gordy face. First time reforms the freebirds with Hayes.

I forget what Promotion that was in.

The 2nd time was in WCCW Gordy does not team with Hayes untill WCW a year later.

Southeastern was when Gordy beat Hayes. Joe Leduc & The Sheepherders came into the ring with scissors trying to get Gordy to cut Hayes' hair. When Gordy refused, Leduc and the Kiwi's got mad and Gordy when on the offensive, beating up all 3. In the dressing room, Hayes & Gordy talked things out, but Gordy didn't officially rejoin his partner until an episode of GCW when the Super Destroyer & Buzz Saywer was suppose to have a match with Hayes & I think, Kevin Sullivan. Hayes' partner wasn't there and Sawyer & Super D wanted the match, so Hayes went to the back and after 20-30 seconds or so, Hayes & a blur went running to the ring. When the cameras caught it, it was Hayes & Gordy cleaning house.

Dick Slater is North American Champion and TV Champion in Mid-South, so he gives away the tv belt to Buzz Sawyer.

Dick Slater is the US Champion and Mid-Atlantic Champion in early '84, so he gives the MA belt to Ivan Koloff.

I am pretty certain The Mongolian Stomper ran the same angle in Stampede and Southeastern in which a young rookie wrestler was brutalized by a heel with his new career put in jeopardy. Stomper ran in to save the youngster who was subsequently revealed to be his son (no actual relation and not the same guy in each territory). The Mongolian Stomper then turned babyface and spoke for the first time in each territory, vowing bloody vengeance against the heel responsible for the injuries.
