• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran Rhyno (Real name: Terrance Gerin) celebrates his 43rd birthday today.

After doing jobs on weekly WWF TV & weekly WCW TV as ‘Terry Richards’ during the mid-90s, he ended up joining Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1999, where he was known as ‘Rhino’.

Rhino stayed with ECW till the bitter end and ended up being the last ever ECW World Heavyweight Champion when the promotion folded, not counting the WWE version of ECW that aired between 2006 and 2010.

When ECW closed its doors, Vince McMahon signed him to a WWF contract and the name changed from ‘Rhino’ to ‘Rhyno’, similar as Taz became Tazz a little bit earlier.

Rhyno stayed with the WWF (later WWE) till 2005, went to TNA and won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.

He returned to the WWE in 2015 and is currently a member of the RAW roster.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RHYNO!
