I can only think of 1 man who has appeared in all 5 major American promotions of the past 25 years: Scott Hall.  And Hall makes it by the skin of his teeth (2 untelevised matches in ECW which have gone largely forgotten now).  It seems hard to believe but I can't think of another. 

Did Jerry Lynn ever job in the AWA as a young Minnesota kid?  Seems likely so he'd be another if he did.

I would definitely think he passed through the AWA at some point although I really can't remember any specific matches.  I also think it's possible he had 1 match in TNA but I can't say for sure on that either.

I seem to remember he and Dory wrestling The Road Warriors for the AWA tag belts.

Off the top of my head, Ricky Morton & Dusty Rhodes would also be on that list.  And didn't Snuka appear with Piper on TNA?  If so, he'd be on the list too.

Terry Funk qualifies. He appeared on AWA cards in Denver and Minneapolis.

To add to the list:

Road Warrior Hawk
Hector Guerrero
Rick Steiner

And I'm pretty sure Dory Funk Jr. would qualify, as I'm pretty sure he worked shots in the AWA.

Don't believe so, but that did remind me that Sherri Martel would be on the list also.

Am I the only one that thinks UWF/Mid South was bigger than TNA or ECW?

would that qualify Ricky Morton?  I know he did at least 1 ECW shot, a few WWE/F shots and a few TNA's

Is that debatable?

MidSouth/UWF was drawing huge crowds in '82-86.  Crowds that ECW only wishes they could draw.   I guess if you factor in that they were house shows and not PPV's, then if you really stretch, MAYBE.
