Defeats that in retrospect were great upsets

I've run across a few match results recently that in retrospect stick out like a sore thumb.

Brooklyn Brawler pins Tommy Dreamer- WWE, White Plains, NY - August 17, 1993
Barry Horowitz pins Ken Shamrock - WWE, Greensboro, NC - July 29, 1989
Jim Powers pins The Tazmaniac (Taz) - WWE, Morristown, NJ - June 29, 1993
Tommy Dreamer pins The Prototype (John Cena), WWE, Cincinnati, OH - June 22, 2002
Kanyon pins Brock Lesnar, WWE, Columbia, MO - October 20, 2001
Shawn Stasiak defeats Randy Orton via submission, WWE, Lakeland, FL - Nov 24, 2001
Jamie Noble pins Daniel Bryan, WWE, East Rutherford, NJ - Jan 12, 2003
Scotty 2 Hotty pins CM Punk, WWE, Milwaukee, WI - May 24, 2005
Spike Dudley pins American Dragon (D. Bryan), MCW/WWE, Popular Bluff, AR - June 13, 2001
Ted Dibiase Jr pins Dean Ambrose, WWE, Philadelphia, PA - Dec 19, 2011
Junkyard Dog pins Mark Callous in 39 seconds, WCW, Atlanta, GA - May 20, 1990


Curious if you know of any others.

I was at a Raw in the late 90s where Techno Team 2000 beat the Hardy Boys in the dark match.

Not an upset. Tekno Team 2000 is clearly the better team.

Tommy Dreamer and Brooklyn Brawler have similar win/loss records.

Since we're talking retrospect, this one actually looks better for Razor than it did originally, since Sean Waltman went on to win multiple championships in multiple promotions.

Re: Defeats that in retrospect were great upsets

The Hurricane Pins AJ Styles, WWF Metal, 2002. Don't know the arena but looking at it in the way that if AJ was that big back as he is now it would be a huge upset.
