15 Superstars you didn't know competed in WCW


The film “No Holds Barred” is a cult classic. The over-the-top but enjoyable flick featured Hulk Hogan as a pro wrestler named Rip facing a monstrous opponent known as Zeus. Although the film was fiction, Zeus didn’t take his loss to Hogan’s character in the movie lightly and set his sights on his co-star in 1989. When Zeus failed to exact revenge on The Hulkster, he left WWE and sports-entertainment.

In 1996, The Four Horsemen and The Dungeon of Doom forged an alliance to stop the spread of Hulkamania through WCW. “The Alliance to End Hulkamania” recruited rivals and former allies from Hogan’s past, including the devastating Zeus. Now known as Z-Gangsta, the massive competitor battled Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage as part of a disastrous Tower of Doom Match at Uncensored 1996. Once again, Zeus failed to best Hogan and he was gone from the Atlanta-based organization as fast as he showed up.
