Known for his famous Gore finishing maneuver that could incessantly be screamed for an indeterminate amount of time, Rhyno has been a fan favorite due to his willingness to do just about anything extreme one can imagine to his 6-foot-2, 295-pound frame.
He followed up that time with a five-year stint with TNA from 2005-2010, where he got to utilize his unique skill set for various hardcore matches. Since then, he has been on the independent circuit wrestling many of the same competitors he has seen from his past. Having returned to WWE and wrestled in NXT since 2015, Rhyno has now become a member of the WWE roster once again; but for how long is still to be determined by the upcoming November election.
