1993 - ECW held their first "November to Remember" event at the ECW Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Here are the results:
- Salvatore Bellomo defeated The Rockin' Rebel in a Chair match.

2005 - Eddie Guerrero, 38, was found dead in his hotel room in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he was scheduled to wrestle Randy Orton and Batista that night in a three-way match to be aired on Smackdown.  For more on Eddie Guerrero's passing, go to the next page.

2006 - At the Wrestling Society X taping in Los Angeles, California, an angle was shot where Vampiro was attacked by a mysterious wrestler (Ricky Banderas) and had a fireball thrown in his face.  The angle would end up causing problems with MTV, who felt the fireball shot was too graphic to show on television.
