The Freebirds had a tag reign of like -5 days since they lost the belts at one of those marathon Orlando tapings before winning them from Doom on a live Clash.

Dusty Rhodes beating Buddy Landell for the NWA National Heavyweight Championship. Buddy no showed TV tapings so they put the title on dusty.  JJ Dillion started to manage Tully.

Is this the shortest championship reign on record?

Hammer to Fall wrote: Didn't WCW have several weird tag title changes in 1995? I think there was at least one negative title reign and perhaps a relabeled or fictitious switch. I recall something involving the Nasty Boys.

I don't think the Bunkhouse Buck and Dick Slater title win actually happened, at least as a title switch. However WCW moved the tag straps to them via tape editing and post produced commentary.

The deal with WCW not switching the Cruiserweight Title from Lenny Lane to Psychosis directly was due to the heat from the gimmick on the Time Warner honchos. GLAAD and other groups made it known that they wanted the homosexual gimmick gone and the corporate suits made it clear that Lenny, Lodi, and the gimmick were to be dropped immediately. Lenny and Lodi nearly lost their jobs over this, but were ultimately allowed to stay although they were off TV for quite a while. WCW had no option of even bringing back Lenny minus the gimmick to do a quick TV match or even dark match at a taping or house show bout to lose the strap. The edicts came from way above anyone in the wrestling business and couldn't be ignored or negotiated. Instead of phantom switching the belt to Psychosis, WCW would have done well to just vacate it and run a tourney or #1 vs. #2 contenders match.

Don't know about that, but they had the one tournament that featured teams from several different countries that allegedly won tournaments in their country to get to the final 8. I think it was the Pat O'Connor Cup or somethign like that. Deklerk and Krueger from South Africa, kahlua from Africa, Benoit and Wellington from Canada, etc.

I don't believe that there were any tournaments.

I think WCW also did a similiar thing when Kensuke Sasaki lost the WCW US Title to One Man Gang. They had Sasaki win then turned off the cameras then restarted the match and him lose to the One Man Gang?

I do remember something bizarre along those lines, but I want to say that it was re-started because they botched they finish the first time.

They showed the end of Sasaki-Gang on Saturday Night, I think. I know I have it on tape.

I think I have the 1995 tag mess on tape.

I used to keep up with television results in a notebook. For Harlem Heat winning the straps, I have the tv airdate of June 24. I suppose it aired on either Pro or Worldwide as I have them working (I presume) Saturday Night on June 24 and not being champs.

Must have been a rash decision as Saturday Night was generally taped only a week or two in advance.

I THINK the Buck/Slater win was a legit win.  The screwiness came when WCW grabbed an old title defense with Tag Champions Harlem Heat beating the Nasty Boys and aired it months after the fact on Worldwide, passing it off as a title change.  Good luck figuring out the length of that title reign.

As for Sasaki and the Gang: the finish was Gang getting a disputed 3-count on Sasaki and parading around the ring with the belt, which was what was shown on television.  In the arena, the match was restarted, and Sasaki rolled Gang up for the pin.  This apparently had to be done to appease New Japan, who didn't want a top star of theirs doing a clean job to the Gang, who was really nothing at that point.

This is correct.  I remember that at the time there was a buzz that the Buck/Slater win might not air, but it did, and it was a legit switch.

The Heat-Nastys switch appeared to be planned far in advance as a way to do the switch w/o exposing the business like they did in the '93 Orlando tapings.  When Heat won, they were announced as "winners and WCW tag team champions" (NOT "still champions") and acted overwhelmed like they won the belts.
