15 WCW Superstars Who Failed In WWE: Where Are They Now?

The thing about Vince McMahon is that he asserts total control over what he produces and even what he buys from others, not really paying much heed to other’s opinions about his work. One can say this is what has guided WWE to such a popular status, as his control over his product has made for such entertainment over the years. But control can be a bad thing, as Vince often misuses his control to vent out his anger on his rivals and sticking it to their ‘fans’ by mistreating other company’s talents.

WCW has been a prime target of Vinny Mac ever since the Monday Night Wars. He ‘buried’ most of the product he bought off the company, but ironically his biggest sell in "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was once a part of WCW. Many wrestlers flocked from WCW to WWE during the Monday Night Wars, especially after McMahon bought off the WCW in 2001, as some saw short-term success in the company and some even became a pivotal part of it while others perished in the long term.

Because off Vince McMahon’s mistreatment of top stars off other promotions, many hesitate to join the company and how he handled the flock of WCW superstars which arrived at WWE is prime example of it. Most of the mid-carders were given bizarre gimmicks which diminished any relevancy they had in the company, while most of the top stars either refused to join them or left soon after joining because of various disputes inside the company. It’s almost like Vince McMahon didn’t want his former rivals to get one over ‘his men’ and thus we saw the failures of so many promising WCW superstars in the WWE, who have to look somewhere else after meeting their ends in the WWE and some even got into some interesting lines of work.

Sting is a born again Christian and tries to advertize the magic of Christianity as much as he can. He also appeared in a 2010 Christian filled ‘The Encounter’. He has also written a book about his transformation upon embracing Christianity named ‘The Moment of Truth’. Sting has also trademarked his name which collides with the musician Sting. Though he can’t wrestle anymore, Sting is still contracted to the WWE. He is willing to make appearances in the Indy Circuit to put over some promotions, and help some talent youngsters get their appreciation. Last seen being inducted by good friend Ric Flair to the WWE Hall of Fame, Sting is now happily enjoying retirement in his home state of Texas and hopeful that his legacy can influence budding wrestlers to get to the top.
