This may be the best place for this.

For some reason went down the rabbit hole of reading about Brian Adams/Crush on Wikipedia.

His final WWF match as Crush was a Shotgun match where all
Members of DOA took on a jobber team that included Marty Garner, Joey Abs and Steve Corino.

IIRC that was during the period where WWF had signed the Hardy Boys and were trying out other OMEGA talent (Garner, Abs). I believe Garner had a couple other on screen matches as well while Abs joined up with the Mean Street Posse later.

This amused me as I believe Heath won the PWI rookie of the year award 4 or 5 years after this was taped.

Also Big Dave was claiming that WWE NEVER lost the match and has had it in their possession. Which if that was the case, why wasn't it on the Unreleased DVD a few years back or one of the gazillion Bret DVDs? They put that YouTube rip of the Andre match from Italy on one.

And apparently match was fully produced and has commentary from Gorilla and Bobby Heenan.

More things that make you say hmmm.

Apparently, speaking of the WM 9 discussion, Mr. Perfect wrestled Rocker-era Shawn Michaels in 1991 which I legit had no idea about. I've long known about other HBK matches e.g. his match against Savage, etc. but this is one of the few I had absolutely no idea existed.

I saw this one on one of those WWF Coliseum Home video tapes rented from a Mom & Pop rental store in the early 90s. I think that's around the time I fell in love with Perfect's theme because I think it was still in between Summerslam 91 and Survivor Series 92.

I just watched a Col. Mustafa match on the Network from after Mania 8 for CXF, but still this timeline doesn't feel like it should work out.

This may not quite meet the criteria of this thread, but here's Earthquake pre-debut, doing a Yukon Lumberjack gimmick, managed by Slick.  Gotta love Roma making sure he kicked out at 3 1/4

Mona (future Molly Holly) Vs Sherri Martel in a random ass No DQ match on a WCW Worldwide from March '00.

What's sad is that I remembered watching that.  When Mona was coming down I said to myself, "I think Sherri jumps her".

Had no idea Sherri Martel was still getting them WCW checks in 2000.
