Hey everyone! It's "The Wrestling Classic" Justin here with another article for ONE37PM. For this article, I wanted to do something for the more casual or younger fans who were not around for World Championship Wrestling. I grew up a huge WCW fan as a kid during the Monday Night Wars. I still find myself watching WCW/JCP a lot on the WWE Network/Peacock. Therefore, I wanted to write an article about a handful of superstars and legends I consider to be homegrown WCW talent. These are the superstars I associate with World Championship Wrestling more so than any other company they might have worked for after, such as the WWE.
These superstars made their names in WCW or Jim Crockett Promotions (JCP would become WCW in 1988), unlike talent such as Scott Hall and Kevin Nash who might have come through WCW first but really made their name in the WWE as Razor Ramon and Diesel before returning to WCW. If you were born before the mid 90s, many of your first memories would be of these superstars in WCW or JCP too. Enjoy!
