Back in the day just about everyone wrestled there at some point. Gagne, Race, Andre .... and then with the national expansion in the 80s you had plenty of guys that maybe were on the downside of their careers coming through there.

Off the top of my head I'll say "Abdullah The Butcher" never wrestled there and that's as big as I can think of right now.

I don't think Fritz Von Erich ever appeared at MSG, at least I don't remember him there.

I'd add The Destroyer, although he may have appeared and I don't have knowledge of it.  Other names you could check:

 

Otto Wanz

Fritz Von Erich

Dutch Savage

Enrique Torres

Yvon Robert

Happy Humphrey

Billy Robinson

Magnum T.A.

Paul Jones

Jos LeDuc

 

 

I realize some of these guys never ventured north (south in Robert's case) , but might have gotten a guest slot at least once.  LeDuc worked the South so often I don't consider him the same as Robert.   Maybe he did a spot in '88 as The Headbanger...

Paul Jones took on Jerry Brisco in 1972

Billy Robinson over Johnny Rodz in 1975

Otto Wanz never actually wrestled there but was introduced to the crowd by Finkel before a 1985 show.

Funny thing with Yvon Robert. He didn't appear at the Garden per se but he beat Johnny Barend on a July 12, 1951 Yankee Stadium show.

Enrique Torres did 5 shows in 1958

I believe Happy Humphrey appeared at the Garden in 1958 as the Mighty Jumbo.

Sting appeared at a couple of WCW shows in 1993 at The Theatre (formerly the Felt Forum) but never in the main arena.

Surprisingly no. Bock's only time at the Garden seems to be during his shortlived announcing gig in the late 80's.

Bockwinkle I actually thought of at one point. I figured that he wrestled as the AWA champion at some point on one of those shows that never got televised and hasn't resurfaced in the trading and collecting community.

Most of the names go back pretty far.

I think Ole Anderson probably also never appeared there.
