Founded on October 11th, 1988, WCW became the first and only wrestling promotion to ever rival the WWE. Ted Turner and WCW not only rivaled the WWE, but at one point were the superior product for 84 weeks in a row. Despite their success, a lack of direction and an inability to create new stars caused WCW to struggle. They were later bought out by the WWE in 2001, officially ending the Monday Night Wars.
After the purchase was finalized some wrestlers were given an opportunity to prove their worth, while others were immediately let go. Some former WCW stars stayed in the business while others went in a complete opposite direction.
This list of 15 former WCW stars varies from jobs in the adult entertainment industry to working in the automobile industry, to still working in the wrestling business. Let’s now find out where these former wrestlers are; here are 15 former WCW stars: where are they now, part two. Enjoy!
