Turner renamed the promotion World Championship Wrestling and it remained an NWA affiliated promotion where some NWA championships were defended until WCW's withdrawal from the NWA in late 1993.

The Heavenly Bodies

To fans excitement, he reformed the Fabulous Ones with Keirn briefly in the USWA, with Cornette as their manager. On January 7, 1991, they won the USWA Tag Team titles, defeating Tony Anthony and Chris Bullock. Three weeks later, on January 28, after a controversial match with Jeff Jarrett and Jerry Lawler, the titles were held up; a week later, on February 4, the rematch for the held-up titles was held and they lost the match and the titles to Lawler and Jarrett.

In October 1991, he went to Smoky Mountain Wrestling to reunite with Cornette and form a new team called "The Heavenly Bodies" with Tom Prichard. They feuded with the Rock 'N Roll Express and won the tag team titles 5 times, until he retired from the ring and was replaced in the team by Jimmy Del Ray.

The Fabulous Ones

In 1982, Stan Lane went to Mid-Southern Wrestling and formed a team called The Fabulous Ones with Steve Keirn. The team feuded with the Midnight Express, Jerry Lawler & Bill Dundee, The Sheepherders (Butch Miller & Luke Williams), Randy Savage & Leapin' Lanny Poffo and the Moondogs with whom they had a series of exceptionally bloody matches. They were also pioneers in the "MTV style" of promotion, creating promotional videos and spectacular entrances with their popular theme song "Everybody Wants You" by Billy Squier.
