Golly, thanks, I have a lot more. I feel kinda stupid.
On my birthday, March 26th...
1981: Perro Aguayo beats Gran Hamada in a tournament final to win the WWF light heavyweight title. 1991: The Texas Hangmen defeat Jeff Jarrett and Eddie Gilbert for the USWA tag team title. 1994: Shane Douglas pins Terry Funk for the ECW World heavyweight title. 2001: Billy Kidman and Rey Misterio Jr. beat Kid Romeo & Elix Skipper for the WCW cruiserweight tag team title. 2001: Booker T beats Scott Steiner for the WCW World heavyweight title.
There's others,but I don't feel like typing them all up. Those're the big ones.
Wow, lots of March birthdays here (in a row, anyway)
On March 31, throughout the years...
Wrestlemania was born! In 1985, the Iron Shiek and Nikolai Volkoff beat those real Americans, Mike Rotundo & Barry Windham for the WWF Tag Team belts. Also on that card, Wendi Richter won the WWF Women's title from Lelani Kai.
March being WM month, 11 years later, Shawn and Bret had their Ironman Match. HBK gets the win and his first belt.
In the year 2000 (in the year 2000!) Kidman is booked to a one-day WCW Cruiserweight championship reign, losing the title to TAFKA Prince Iaukea, the last Pre-New Era champ.
Sting beat Mike Rotundo in 1989 for the WCW TV Title, thus proving ... something. (At least the fact to bet against the Varsity Club winner on my birthday. And wasn't Lelani Kai the cheerleader for the last version of the VC in WCW? Hmmm...)
Finally for our Canadian brothers and sisters, the British Bulldogs won a tournament final for the vacant Stampede Tag belts back in 1984 (only to vacate them when they jumped to the WWF later that year).
Checking with a couple of websites, no titles that I'd consider major ever changed hands on my birthday (December 21).
There were a bunch of title changes, but just about all of them were territorial.
I mean, I guess that time when Chick Dude (I can't even make up a name like that) beat Albion Britt for the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title on December 21, 1936 was a pretty big deal.
Also, Bobby Duncum defeated George Gaiser in Tampa, Fla. on Dec. 21, 1971 for the NWA Florida Brass Knuckles Title. That belt became defunct in 1984. No word on if Regal will try to revive it on the WWF's next trip to the Sunshine State.
February 14 - and the big story was the epic, classic 1999 match when Hardcore Holly won his first hardcore championship in Memphis, TN defeating the redoubtable Al Snow for the belt after Road Dogg gave it up due to injury on the previous Raw.
That same night, Val Venis brought the love to dust Ken Shamrock for the IC belt, as well. Ah, what sweet, sweet memories.
Well, looking through the online histories of WWF, WCW, and ECW, I get: Steve Blackman defeating Crash for the WWF Hardcore title. Yep, nothing better than celebrating your 21st birthday (7/2/00) watching a Steve Blackman match.
In terms of the trade, I'm guessing Mark Henry, it would make the JR reference of Mae Young's hand seem right. Is there a way to salvage the Big Slug, possibly. First thing they need to do is give him a submission move.
