WWE Top 10 Photos Of Current Wrestlers Before They Were Stars

10Braun Strowman

The current reigning WWE Intercontinental Champion Braun Strowman has taken over the spot as the company’s resident monster following the footsteps of superstars like the Big Show. But he didn’t get to the position where he is without any struggles.

The Monster Among Men worked as a doorman and a mechanic before starting his strongman career. He signed with WWE in 2013 and got assigned to the performance center. Strowman made his first TV appearance as one of Adam Rose’s Rosebuds before finding his break as a part of the Wyatt Family.

9Aleister Black

Aleister Black is starting to pick up steam in his singles career on the main roster. WWE is building him up as the next big thing by making him squash various local talents week after week before giving him some legitimate competition.

Black worked the independent circuit across the United States, Europe & Japan under the name Tommy End before signing with WWE in 2017. He performed for NXT, where he became the brand’s world champion in 2018. WWE is taking it slow in building Black as a potential top superstar, and it will be intriguing to see who will be the next one to knock on his door.


Heavy Machinery’s Otis has taken the WWE Universe by surprise with his unorthodox style of wrestling and his unique attitude. He has earned a lot of fans for himself with his current romance storyline with Mandy Rose, and it looks like he’s in for a potential feud with Dolph Ziggler.

Before making it to WWE, Otis was a successful collegiate wrestler and was even considered a prospect for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. He, along with his partner Tucker has been one of the most entertaining acts in SmackDown, and it will be interesting to see where he goes with his storyline with Mandy Rose.

7Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt is a third-generation pro-wrestler following in the footsteps of his grandfather Blackjack Mulligan and his father Irwin R. Schyster. Wyatt tried his luck in collegiate football before dropping out to pursue his pro-wrestling aspirations. He debuted in WWE’s main roster under the name Husky Harris as a part of Nexus, and after the group disbanded, he got repackaged as Bray Wyatt.

6Drew McIntyre

The 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre has come a long way since making his first WWE debut as Vince McMahon’s Chosen One in 2009. He started his pro-wrestling training at the age of fifteen and competed in the British independent circuit under the name Drew Galloway. He also holds a Masters Degree in Criminology from the Glasgow Caledonian University.

After a few successful years in WWE, he got pushed down the card as a jobber and got eventually released from his contract. He re-invented himself in the independent circuit once again and returned to WWE in 2017. The Scottish Psychopath is gearing up for his big WWE Championship match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36, and it will be interesting to see if he will be able to dethrone the Beast Incarnate.

5Becky Lynch

The current Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch is having the best run of her career after winning the title at the main event of WrestleMania 35. She has transitioned from being the Irish Lass Kicker to the Man and she took her place as the face of WWE. But her road to superstardom was not without any struggles. She had an almost career-ending head injury in 2006 and had to take a hiatus from wrestling for almost six years.

She took various jobs to sustain her life including one as a flight attendant for two years. Lynch fought through all the obstacles and made it back to pro-wrestling and is reaping the benefits of her hard work as the face of the world’s largest wrestling promotion.

4Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins started training to become a pro-wrestler in 2005 and wrestled in various independent promotions under the names Gixx & Tyler Black.

Coming from the roots of the legendary Anoa’i family, Roman Reigns had pro-wrestling in his blood. But it was not his initial choice for a career as he aspired for a career in professional football. He played college football for Georgia Tech before having some brief off-season stints with the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL in 2007.

Reigns started pursuing pro-wrestling after dropping out of football and made it to WWE as a part of the Shield in 2012. The rest is history as Reigns has become one of the faces of the company and looks to have more success in the years ahead.

1Brock Lesnar

The current reigning WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has proved that he is built for combat sports right from his college days. Lesnar had a successful amateur wrestling career being a two-time NJCAA & NCAA All-American with a record of 106–5 overall in four years of college. He signed with WWE in 2000 and wrestled in their developmental territory before making it to the main roster in 2002.

He became the youngest WWE Champion in history, and also the second fastest to win the title. He also had a successful stint in MMA being a former UFC Heavyweight Champion. The Beast Incarnate is still dominating the landscape of WWE and will most-likely walk into WrestleMania as a champion for the third consecutive year.
