WWE names the 50 greatest stars in WCW history

Bill Goldberg is high up on the list. But how high? Photo via WWE.com.

This one should be fun.

WWE.com is back with yet another click-baiting countdown style list and we here at Cageside Seats just can't get enough of it. The subject this time centers on the 50 greatest stars in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) history.

They have a set of criteria for their rankings that include:

  • Eligibility starts in 1988 when Ted Turner bought the company.
  • Ratings were only on performances while in WCW. Accomplishments outside the company were not considered.
  • The basis for the rankings was wide ranging from "longevity to cultural impact."

The WWE.com article does admit to some personal biases but the editing team settled on a top 50 and now we can check it out and debate it endlessly in the comments section while waiting for Raw to kick off tonight.

Check out the list after the jump.
