One of the highlights of a pretty darn good WrestleMania VII was The Nasty Boys beating The Hart Foundation to win the WWE Tag Team Titles in a grand match. 

Another highlight was Willie Nelson's stirring rendition of God Bless America that began the show. 

The country music legend was a hit with the boys in the back and wound up partying with Brian Knobbs, Jerry Saggs, Shawn Michaels, Curt Hennig and Curt's father Larry 'The Axe' until the early hours of the LA morning. 

During the hazy scene, Knobbs ended up gifting his newly-won championship belt to Nelson as a souvenir after Willie had serenaded him with a version of Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground. 

Knobbs had known Nelson for years due to a connection with mutual friend Dusty Rhodes, and considered him a hero. 

Unfortunately, just a few short hours after the party was over, The Nasty Boys were due at a Gold's Gym to film material with Vince McMahon for an upcoming episode of Prime Time. 

They showed up as scheduled, but only with one of their titles.
