Now before we begin, kids, I want to say that the WCW Nintendo 64 video games will never be topped. Those were the greatest video games eeeeever.
I am basing most of my criteria on what wrestlers accomplished after the separation from NWA. So Dusty Rhodes, Nikolai Volkoff, etc. will not be found.
If that taints your own list, feel free to make a list of your own. I didn't get cable until WCW was running as its own entity.
After compiling this list it's pretty obvious WCW didn't create too many stars. Five of the 10 wrestlers were stars in a previous promotion before coming to WCW.
I apologize to everyone who was expecting to see Rip Rogers on the list, he didn't quite make it.
This list is not going to count down the best pure wrestlers. It's not going to count down the greatest characters.
It is counting down the most influential, recognizable, noteworthy wrestlers in the company's history.
WCW was a great promotion and had many influential moments in wrestling history. This list pays tribute to the 10 best wrestlers in WCW history.
