Default Who from today would have fit well in WCW?

As it says in the title, who do you think from today's current crop of wrestlers would have fit well and could have thrived back in the days of Nitro and Thunder?

One guy I have always felt would have worked is Antonio Cesaro. WCW had quite a few guys working a similar style to Cesaro. IE: Regal, Finlay. I feel he could have easily had a good run with the US or TV titles if he had been around at the time.

Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

Wade Barrett & Cody Rhodes


Firm believer Barrett has what it takes to be a top heel and while that may not have been the case in WCW, I could still see him in some upper mid card programs with guys like Booker T, Chris Benoit and even Luger, among others.

Cody would have been a strong mid card talent for WCW, especially around the TV Title.


Fast forward to the Russo days, both would be main eventers.

Kidd would fit well with those random cruiserweight matches they always had.. Sin Cara obviously too..

On the other side of the coin Cesaro would have fit in for reasons previously mentioned..

Big E always seemed like a WCW type talent to me for some reason.

John Cena could have been a big babyface back then.

Given that at one point WCW had a 80+ person midcard, any wrestler worth their salt today should have been able to make it.

CM Punk, DB, Ziggler all could've been great cruiserweights. Not so sure about the bigger guys, it was hard if you were a big guy to make a name for yourself because they would always bring in already established heavyweights from the WWF.... with the exception of the Giant of course. I couldn't really picture any of the tag teams fitting in, between the Steiner Brothers, Harlem Heat, and the Outsiders, any team would have tough competition.... in late 99, 2000, 2001 anything could've happened though.

yeah Big E was the first guy that came to mind too, also Ryback & Cena, Cena woulda been the next Sting easily, I'd prolly like Cena more in WCW tbh.

I would love to see D Bry, Kofi, Yoshi Tatsu, SHelton Benjamin & Evan Bourne against some of them great cruiserweights & Luchadores from that Era
