There are many current WWE Superstars whose paths have crossed before they started working for the company. Several performers came up through the independent wrestling scene around the world and supported one another en route to WWE.

During their WWE careers, wrestlers often train together and learn new skills and techniques from one another. Many stars also become trainers once their in-ring careers come to an end. Some huge names are current WWE trainers including Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels, and English wrestling legend, Robbie Brookside.

Sometimes, up-and-coming stars have helped to train others while honing their craft themselves. It isn't uncommon for younger and independent wrestlers to help to train others, and in some cases, establish their own wrestling schools.

Multiple current WWE superstars trained others, and some may come as a surprise.
