Some of the later ECW blokes.  Chris Chetti, Doring/Roadkill.  Given the WWF had little interest in them, I'd've thought WCW might have taken a look.

Mero made one WCW appearance in 2000. I just watched it the other night. He got into it with Tank Abbott and then, he was gone.

I don't fully remember, but I think this was around the time that Sable showed up on Nitro sitting in the front row.  They couldn't say who she was but pretty much let everybody know who was on the screen.

No offense, but I would have been really surprised if Brian Blair DID show up in WCW.  I know - Rick Martel was pretty shocking, after not doing much for a number of years.  But Blair?  He was long finished by the time WCW mattered.  When he could have gone to WCW in the early 90s, it probably would have been a huge paycut.

Since it was brought up with Blair...did Jim Brunzell ever show up in WCW after his WWF run?  For some reason I think he did during the Disney tapings, but not 100% sure.

I think he just worked the Slamboree 1993 event.  I'm working on his career record now and I don't see anything as of yet; results are pretty thin so far from 1994-97 but Jim was wrapping his career up by that point for all purposes anyway.

Not offended. Just thought he was one of those guys who was in tight with Hogan. Would not have been surprised to see him turn up at some point. The rest of them did.

Good point, forgot he was a friend of Hogan.  And as far as age, etc...the Nasty Boys showed up in TNA, so Blair would've fit back then.

Doug Furnas and Phil LaFon. Those guys had 'WCW Saturday Night' written all-over them.

While Furnas wasn't on the WCW roster during the Monday Night Wars era, he had a brief WCW stint a few years earlier including a Clash of the Champions match.

Weren't MoM in the USWA between 96--99? Seem to remember them popping up around then.
