List of the best WCW wrestlers of all time. Who were the greatest wrestlers in the history of WCW (World Championship Wrestling)?

WCW was born in 1988, and it wasn't too long after that that it went to war with WWE (then WWF) in what became known as the Monday Night Wars between each promotions main attractions, WCW's Nitro and WWE's Raw. The War between these two great wrestling promotions was intensified when many of the top wrestlers from the WWE jumped ship and brought their best wrestling moves over to WCW. Wrestlers like Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall.

That being said, WCW's entire legacy isn't just about old WWE superstars that came over to make more money from Ted Turner (I mean, it became that) but WCW was a brand unto itself with many remarkable talents with no ties (for the time being) to WWE. And that's what this list is about.
