Not *literally* no one, but years go by and it doesn't get thought about much and then you go "Holy shit, that actually happened".

- Courtney Cox appeared on Nitro several times at the height of "Friends" hysteria to try to talk David Arquette out of wrestling

- Little-known referee Mark Johnson was a full-fledged member of the NWO reboot at one point

- Evander Holyfield boxed Matt Hardy on SNME

- Jake Roberts appeared on an ECW PPV

- Rob Feinstein managed to make TV as a performer for ECW, WCW, and the WWF during the late '90s

- The Hart Foundation spray painted the "N word" in the Nation of Domination's locker room

- New Jack and Shark Boy formed a comedy team in TNA

- Rico Constantino pinned Ric Flair cleanly on Raw

- Black Bart was a full-fledged WWF jobber for a year, not far removed from being named World Class' first "World" champion

- Eric Bischoff beat Terry Funk for the WCW Hardcore title

- CM Punk's first high-profile feud was with Raven and it lasted more than 6 months in both ROH and TNA

If not for WWE.com mentioning it this morning, I totally forgot that Holyfield came in to box Matt Hardy.

Until you mentioned it, I completely forgot Courtney Cox' nipples were on Nitro.

A couple I don't know at all, like the N word being spraypainted, Feinstein, and the New Jack/Shark Boy team. But the others I remember clearly (but admittedly wouldn't have brought them up in conversation if you didn't mention it).

That's what DX said.  I thought the storyline would go that DX did it to frame the Hart Foundation, but WWF dropped it fairly sharpish.

That was very bizarre as David had been retired for 5 years at that point, wasn't actively competing, and basically never wrestled again with the exception of some fanfest matches 15 years later.  He wrestled Dean Malenko on Nitro for the Cruiserweight title and the connection there is that David and Joe Malenko were tag partners during an All-Japan tour in 1990.  I always wondered if maybe that's how he got the match.

And consider this: David Sammartino holds wins over hardcore legends Atsushi Onita and Cactus Jack, and once beat Genichiro Tenryu too.

I love this topic.

- In the summer of 1986, before the Machines vs. Heenan Family angle really got going, the WWF teased one of Big John Studd and King Kong Bundy turning babyface after they got into a shoving match following a disqualification loss to the British Bulldogs on TV and then had King Tonga bodyslam Studd on TV when only Andre and Hogan had accomplished this feat, setting off a brief feud before the future Haku got channeled into the Islanders tag team.

- The WWF intended to push the Moondogs again during the summer of 1986 and recorded a match at the Championship Wrestling taping in Poughkeepsie with Jimmy Hart as their manager, only to scrap the idea and quietly burn the bout off on All American Wrestling.

- Andre The Giant was announced as a Royal Rumble '91 participant in the long list of wrestlers Mean Gene would rattle off during the promo segments. Then he was quietly removed from the match with no fanfare and never had a WWF match again despite the promotion teasing he'd wrestle again during the course of that year.

- Shawn Michaels vs. Tito Santana at WM8 was to have been Shawn Michaels vs. Marty Jannetty, but Marty got fired right after the Barbershop window angle. He had a girlfriend who 19 or 20 and was denied entry to a nightclub where alcohol was sold for being underage. They made a big scene and the police were called. Marty had some drugs (cocaine, I think) on him and was arrested. He didn't make it back until November or December. Tito got his Mania spot.

- Iron Mike Sharpe did some TV squash jobs for the WWF as late as mid 1995.

- The Bushwhackers were in the WWF as a babyface tag team getting house show and TV wins as late as September of 1996 and even were in an angle with Brian Pillman.

- Tom Zenk was in WCW into the spring of 1994.

Owen Hart had some televised matched on WCW Worldwide in the very early 1990s.

Also on WCW Worldwide, the Freebirds and the Southern Boys had a best of three series for the Southern tag team trophy, which I don't think was ever used again.

Brian Pillman had a weird series of matches where he faced jobbers like Rip Rogers and George South in gimmick matches. Weird shit like no falls count in the first five minutes, and match where both men started with ten points and lost a point if they touched the mat with anything apart from their feet. Pillman's opponent lost a point by doing a cartwheel.

The Owen hart stuff in WCW was an interesting visual.

Great stuff. Didn't remember any of these. Saw Owen in WCW through the magic of old rasslin tapes but otherwise drew a blank on these.


I also fell off a ladder last September and had a double skull fracture , a concussion and was laying in a pool of spinal fluid so maybe my memory isn't up to par just yet.

The Conquistadors beat Sam Houston and Terry Taylor clean on TV. Then the cameramen completely ignores the Conquistadors who inadvertently walk out to pay attention to Taylor heel turn.
