Jesse Sorensen
While a lot of people were under the assumption that his career as a professional wrestler was over after he suffered a serious neck injury, Jesse Sorensen has shown that there is life after TNA. He has been wrestling on a pretty frequent basis on the independent wrestling circuit.

John Morrison
Throughout the past several months, Chavo Guerrero has been taking in quite a few business meetings, in order to set up his career outside of professional wrestling. It looks like one of those ventures has come to fruition, as Guerrero is now doing a talk show for GeekNation.com, called Where Men Come To Be Men. Rampage Jackson and John Morrison recently filmed an episode with him.

Matt Hardy
A look back at one of the most brutal injuries suffered within a WWE ring. Joey Mercury, who was teaming with John Morrison at the time, suffered a broken nose in a match against Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy when a ladder spot went awry. This video is very graphic, so proceed at your own risk.

John Morrison
Even though he remains quite focused on his movie career, John Morrison has been gaining a reputation on the independent wrestling circuit as quite the asset. He handles himself professionally and is a pretty good draw at these shows. That is how the former WWE star has been able to consistently get booked across the country.

John Morrison
With so many wrestlers being rumored to be joining Jeff Jarrett in his new wrestling promotion, John Morrison has become the latest speculation, as many feel that he has enough name value to be utilized immediately as a main event performer for Jarrett. His main focus is still movies, but Morrison has kept himself involved in wrestling since leaving WWE.

Miz

"If Miz and Morrison never happened, I truly believe that I would have been fired within a year. I think being with Morrison really gave me the opportunity to take risks. It gave me the opportunity to really stand tall in our realm. When we created a thing called The Dirt Sheet, which… Back then, YouTube was just getting going with its popularity. WWE now has its own YouTube channel. It didn't have its own YouTube Channel. It didn't have those internet shows. We were the first. So we kind of became originals and we were doing those sorts of things that were going against the grain because we wanted to get noticed. I think Morrison pushed me and I pushed Morrison to really do the best that we possibly can. We brought the best out of each other, is what I thought."

R Truth
Six wrestlers stepped into the gigantic steel cage structure at Elimination Chamber 2011, fighting for a chance to challenge Miz for the WWE Championship. CM Punk, John Morrison, Randy Orton, R Truth and Sheamus tried, but it was John Cena that was victorious that evening in the main event.
February 20, 2011
Lance Storm
The boring gimmick that Lance Storm received while working in WWE was actually a little jab at internet wrestling fans. Many viewed him as a guy that was just too boring to be a star. In actuality, though, Storm has a pretty good personality and a sense of humor backstage. WWE went with the gimmick in order to try to something to see if it would give him momentum.
April 13, 2014
Kamala
Back when he was a teenager in Mississippi, Kamala was a bit of a thief. He became known in town as a burglar who came from a poor family. The local police did not want to arrest him, so they heavily suggested that he leave town to avoid any further complications. The future WWE star opted to flee to the state of Florida, where he made money by picking fruit.
April 11, 2014
Bobby Heenan
In a little known fact in professional wrestling, Bobby Heenan was originally scheduled to manage Jesse Ventura. Vince McMahon had lured him away from the AWA for that particular role. However, Ventura had blood clots in his lungs, which was due to his stint in the Vietnam War, and was forced to retire as an in ring performer. WWE moved Heenan on to other wrestlers.
April 10, 2014
Wahoo McDaniel
In one of the more interesting connections in professional wrestling, when Wahoo McDaniel was a teenager in Texas, he was coached in baseball by George Bush, who would go on to become the 41st President of the United States.
April 9, 2014
Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not. The relationship was created for their on screen characters to help Arn connect with the audience quicker because Ole was already established in the territory.
April 4, 2014
Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television. It was an actual wedding, as the performer was really wanting to marry his longtime girlfriend. When he approached Vince McMahon about it, the promoter loved the idea and decided to make it a draw for WWE.
April 4, 2014
Bobby Eaton
One of the biggest mysteries in professional wrestling involves Dennis Condrey and his decision to walk away from the Midnight Express. When asked about the situation, Bobby Eaton said that his former tag team partner basically left without saying a word to him for two years. Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.
April 2, 2014
Balls Mahoney
Prior to making a name for himself in ECW, Balls Mahoney had a very brief stint in WWE as a character named Xanta Klaus, who was supposed to be the younger brother of Santa Clause that lived in the South Pole and stole Christmas presents. He was introduced by Ted DiBiase at an In Your House event in 1995 as a foil for Savio Vega.
March 24, 2014
Jim Cornette
While a lot of performers will say that they always wanted to be involved in the professional wrestling industry, Jim Cornette actually means it. The legendary NWA manager started working in the business when he was just 14 years old, serving as a photographer, ring announcer, magazine correspondent and as a public relations person.
March 23, 2014
Randy Savage
Back when he was a star for WWE during the late 1980s, Randy Savage made a discovery that would have a bit of an impact on the professional wrestling industry. The former world heavyweight champion was the one that discovered Sid Vicious, whom he convinced to give the industry a try. Savage sent Vicious to train with Tojo Yamamoto to start his career.
March 22, 2014
Jesse Ventura
After serving six years in the Navy and before becoming a professional wrestling star, Jesse Ventura had a brief stint with the Mongols, a well known motorcycle gang. He states that he was a fully patched member and actually served as the third in command. He left the group prior to the Mongols starting a longstanding war with the Hell's Angels.
March 22, 2014
Alundra Blayze
Years before she became known to WWE fans as Alundra Blayze, Madusa Miceli became an international star in professional wrestling after leaving the AWA and heading to All Japan. She impressed the company so much that they made her the first non Japanese wrestler to be given a multiple year contract. Miceli was given a three year deal.
March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Since he was the only professional wrestler in the history of the industry to have been trained by Ric Flair, Stan Lane paid homage to mentor very early on in his career. At one point in time, he used the name Stan Flair. He also went by Nature Boy Stan Lane, while making a name for himself in Florida. He became Sweet Stan Lane while teaming with Bobby Eaton in the Midnight Express.
March 21, 2014
Ernest Miller
Prior to making a name for himself in mixed martial arts and professional wrestling, Ernest Miller was a pretty good football player. He was the star linebacker for his high school team in Georgia. He was good enough to become an All American at Savannah State University, where he played linebacker and studied electrical engineering.
March 21, 2014
Dick Murdoch
When he first made his debut in WWE, there were people who speculated that Trevor Murdoch might have been related to the late Dick Murdoch, a wrestler who made his name during the territorial days. However, there are no bloodlines between the two performers. Someone backstage in WWE simply gave Trevor the name because of his resemblance to Dick.
March 21, 2014
Mike Rotunda
Back when he was with the NWA, Mike Rotunda had an amateur wrestler gimmick when he teamed with Rick Steiner. It was actually based on his real life athletic career in college. Rotunda really did wrestle at Syracuse University. He was never an All American, though.
March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.
March 20, 2014
Bret Hart
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter. Since she would not sign a new contract with the company, McMahon wanted to take the belt off of her, so instead of telling her about it, the future WWE CEO opted to put the Fabulous Moolah in a mask. Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.
March 20, 2014
Bryan Clark
Since the video game was sweeping the nation, WCW decided to capitalize on the popularity of the Mortal Kombat series by creating wrestling characters that were similar to the ones in the game. Bryan Clark, Ernest Miller, Glacier and Chris Kanyon were given characters that were part MMA fighters and part superheroes.
