Jordan was in Memphis for a couple of stints in the early to mid 1990s.

In the tag team title match against the Quebecers were PJ Walker, who would soon become Aldo Montoya and later Justin Credible, and Mike Bell.

Bell did jobber work on and off for the WWF from the early 1990s into the Attitude Era. He is likely best remembered for a match around 2001 or 2002 against Perry Saturn on whatever the syndicated B show was called at the time. They got crossed up on a spot and Saturn went nuts, laying into Bell with some stiff kicks and punches, throwing him out of the ring to land dangerously on his head, and then tossing him hard into the steps. The match then resumed with Saturn winning with the planned finish. It was somewhat surprising that the beat down aired when it could've been edited out or the match simply not aired, but the average fan might not have realized what happened and in context of the work, it made Saturn seem like a dangerous and somewhat crazy heel. Because Bell had been around the WWF as a jobber for ages and was known as a vet indy guy who blew a spot rather than some indy high spot wannabe or guy two weeks out of wrestling school, the likes of Undertaker and the APA weren't impressed with Saturn. The WWF turned into an angle and had the APA beat up Saturn stiffly on TV the next week.
