WWE may be the number one promotion in the world today, but they were not always on top of the food chain.

A few decades ago, this prestigious position belonged to World Championship Wrestling, who competed with the WWF for years before their demise in 2001.

Originally known as Jim Crockett Promotions, WCW helped give plenty of Superstars their big break, including Booker T, Goldberg, and DDP.

But whilst these three Hall of Famers are known for their incredible careers in the Georgia-based promotion, there are plenty of Superstars, both past and present, who fans may not be aware competed in WCW.

Here are five WWE Superstars you (probably) did not know were in WCW, what they accomplished, and how they eventually found their way to the WWE.


#5. Rhyno

Rhyno and Heath Slater were the first ever WWE SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions.

The Man Beast from Detriot, Michigan may be best remembered for his time in WWE and ECW, but Rhyno did indeed spend some time in WCW.

Competing as the much less imposing sounding 'Terry Richards', the young man-beast came up short on several occasions, including losing to former WWF stars such Hacksaw Jim Duggan and the Road Warriors.

Leaving WCW in 1995, the final Champion of the original ECW wouldn't head to the lad of Extreme just yet, as he would join the WWF during the New-Generation era, where he wouldn't have much success.

Whilst he may not have been much in his first WWF run, Richards did get the name Rhino as part of the company, and would eventually join ECW in 1999, as one of the extreme promotions most successful stars of all time.
