ABOUT
ABOUT

Early Life

Terrance Guido Gerin, better known by his ring name Rhyno is most fondly remembered for his

hardcore run in ECW as well as subsequent run in WWE. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Rhyno trained

under Scott D’Amore, Doug Chevalier and Mickey Doyle before starting his professional career in

wrestling.

ECW

After a few years in WCW and CWA, Rhyno came to ECW in 1999 as Rhino. His main feud here at

ECW throughout 2000 was with The Sandman, defeating him in big title matches. On multiple

occasions, like Heatwave, Rhyno attacked The Sandman’s wife and valet Lori as well. Rhyno defeated

arch-rival in 2001 to win the World Heavyweight Championship of ECW. He went on to defend it

twice, beating The Sandman again and then Spike Dudley on the last two ECW matches ever.

WWE Career

Rhyno debuted in WWE (then WWF) in 2001 as a heel, aligning himself with Edge and Christian. On

April 17 SmackDown the same year, he defeated Kane to win the WWF Hardcore Championship.

Rhyno was part of the team of ECW wrestlers led by Paul Heyman who “invaded” WWF. Later in the

main event of Invasion, he feuded with Chris Jericho due to the fact that Jericho had been insulting

the on-screen owner of ECW, Stephanie McMahon for a while.

He lost his WCW United States Championship to Kurt Angle within a month which led to his kayfabe

firing from the company. This angle was shown to explain his absence due to a cervical fusion

surgery he was undergoing. When he came back 16 months later after the brand switch, Rhyno did

so as a face for the first time.

He was released by WWE in 2005 due to a public argument with his wife at a Wrestlemania

afterparty, after which he went on to wrestle in TNA.

Since then he returned to WWE and teamed up with Heath Slater in 2016 to become the first-ever

SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions.

Rhyno was recently put in a WWE match on RAW to fight for his career again Heath Slater. Rhyno

lost the match and was fired from with rumours circulating he had retired.
