DECEMBER 2019 WRESTLING CHAT.

Recommended Posts

I thought Tommy Dreamer might qualify but he doesn't appear to have had a WCW jobber match.

There are a few ECW talents that have been everywhere except AEW and are still working. Assuming a few eventually sneak into future battle royals for that nostalgia pop, that list can grow quite a bit. 

And if we want to count WWECW, Chavo Guerrero working a match in AEW would also get him in the mix. 

Actually, wasn't Tommy Dreamer in the Casino Battle Royal?

Dreamer was never in WCW unless he worked as a jobber on some obscure taping, but apparently, he almost went as part of the American Males w/ Bagwell. Plus, there was a proposed ECW invasion of WCW. 

Also, I don't count WWECW.

Yeah, I edited that Dreamer bit. I fucked up. 

Depending on who the EVPs would want to bring in for a nostalgia pop, who's left that could make that cut? Not counting my stretch for WWECW Chavo, we've got:

  • Sabu
  • Sandman
  • RVD
  • Raven
  • Stevie Richards
  • If he found himself available and willing to do even a tiny bit of physicality, Mick Foley
  • I guess Shane Douglas is still taking bookings?
  • Terry Funk hasn't wrestled in a couple years but he's not dead yet

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few. I know most of those are highly unlikely, but a couple couple easily join the club.

There's actually a bunch that are an AEW match away.

I wouldn't be shocked to see RVD make the cut as he'll probably continue working for quite a while. His midlife crisis is likely going to be super expensive.

With all the promotion hopping he did in the 90s, it's a little surprising that Jarrett never stopped in ECW for a cup of coffee. 

Did Corino ever work any dark or job matches in WCW?

Anyone else I'm missing? I know most of those are highly unlikely, but a couple couple easily join the club. 

 

Johnny Swinger, The Harris Twins, Juventud Gurrerra, Konnan, PCO, Scott Steiner, Tajiri, and Erik Watts, going by the all time roster Wiki and memory. Those are all guys that worked matches in the OG ECW, WWF/E, WCW, and TNA/Impact and are still "active", although I'm pushing it with Watts and I think the Harris Twins are out.

Tajiri never worked WCW, did he? He won some WCW titles during the Invasion, but who didn't?

You're right, he didn't work WCW.  I'm not sure why I tossed him in there.

Rikishi never worked ECW, that was Samu and LA Smooth

I won't speculate about his motives, but that's the opposite of the old-school working handshake.

Norman Smiley once goofed on me for like two days for stiffing him on a handshake. That is one A+, super cool dude. He was more than happy to just shoot the shit for a good long time about grappling, and showed me a handful of really nifty reversal / escapes.

Are there any wrestlers who have worked a match (rather than worked backstage) in all 5 of the recent big companies in the US (WWE/WCW/ECW/TNA/AEW) I would think the closest is Jericho but I'm pretty sure he never went near TNA. Did Billy Gunn ever work WCW and ECW (even the McMahon reboot)? Speaking of that reboot, did Dustin Rhodes work there? I think he might be the guy.

The aforementioned Norman Smiley would also make the cut if he ever lands in AEW. He tagged with Whipwreck against Malenko / Benoit, and I'm sure he made other bookings for them, but I know that one for sure.

If AEW ever makes the trek to Kentuckiana, Tracy Smothers would have a chance at being in all five companies.

What if The Dark Order is what Sid meant by that for the last 30 years? WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW!

Fit Finlay has hands like a couple of Baseball Catcher's Mitts, but his handshake is extremely light. Feels like he could crush every bone in your hand to powder if he wanted, though.

The Young Pistols worked for WCW for a couple of weeks before becoming the Smoking Gunns. But he was never in ECW.

The best guy who's an AEW appearance short of the full set is Scott Steiner. Who, let's face it, would be awesome on Dynamite

The Young Pistols were Tracy Smothers and Steve Armstrong.

Who were Colt and Kip Winchester?

Colt and Kip Winchester worked WCW before they were the Smoking Gunns. Bart Gunn somehow managed to work WCW, WWF, TNA, NJPW and AJPW in his career. No ECW though.

How did Jungle Jim Steele never work WWF?

Jerry Lynn worked for WWE, WCW, ECW and TNA as well as AWA and ROH. He works for AEW but I don't see him having a match for them.
