It’s crazy to think that World Championship Wrestling has been out of business for a whopping 18 years now, but facts are facts. In fact, you could argue that WCW was already dead and buried long before Vince McMahon purchased the company in 2001. It wasn't so much a purchase as covering the funeral costs.

For all the faults of its later years, WCW undoubtedly had some fantastic moments, rivalries, and characters throughout its run. That said, the company did let several notable stars of tomorrow slip through its fingers. The most famous example of this, of course, is a fired “Stunning” Steve Austin eventually going on to become “Stone Cold” Steve Austin – the hottest star of the hottest period in wrestling history.

While names like Austin, Mick Foley, The Undertaker, Triple H, Chris Jericho, and Eddie Guerrero are all well-known figures who were at one point tied down to a WCW contract, there are other names who you may have zero idea were actually employed by WCW throughout the years.

Some may have gone on to become main event WWE stars.

Others, not so much.
