WWE has long been where the biggest stars migrate to, but there have been some great wrestlers to never wrestle for them.
In the '80s and beyond, Vince McMahon Jr. and WWE changed pro wrestling forever.
Whatever your opinion of his product, it's undeniable that he had a huge hand in changing the sport into a global money-making phenomenon.
The men and women on this list never worked for McMahon because the company wasn't around during their time, wrestled in a far away land or in the case of one man, just refused to join the WWE team.
Note: I've revised this after realizing some of my initial entrants had in fact worked for McMahon in some fashion. Seeing just how few great wrestlers never worked for WWE is a testament to how dominant the company is.
