History: Dennis Rodman definitely had a small run in the world of professional wrestling, but he was most well-known for his activities in another pro sport. Rodman displayed his rebounding skills with the Chicago Bulls (among other teams) in the National Basketball League and made it on the NBA Championship team four times (2 with Detroit, 2 with Chicago). He first appeared as a wrestler in March 1997, when he accepted an nWo t-shirt from "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan. He later appeared infrequently at Hogan's side, due to his basketball commitments.

In June '97, after the NBA season ended, Rodman appeared once again at Hogan's side, attacking Lex Luger and the Giant. At Bash At The Beach '97, Hogan and Rodman fought (and lost) to Luger and the Giant in the main event. This was Rodman's first ever wrestling match. He soon faded from the wrestling scene, probably to go back to training for the next NBA season.

A year later, Rodman returned (again nearing the end of the basketball season), aiding Hogan as they viciously attacked Diamond Dallas Page. Soon after, DDP challenged Rodman and Hogan to face him and Karl Malone at Bash At The Beach '98. Thanks to the Disciple's interference, Hogan and Rodman won the match, getting Rodman his first WCW PPV victory. Rodman, however, shortly thereafter, headed back to basketball, at least for a while. There were rumors that Rodman was angry at WCW, since they apparently owed him some money.

In August '99, Rodman reappeared once again in WCW, this time feuding with "Macho Man" Randy Savage. He even kidnapped Savage's girlfriend, Gorgeous George, for a short period of time. This led Savage to keep George underwraps, while he and Rodman exchanged some "entertaining" language in their speeches. The two met at Road Wild '99, with Gorgeous George reappearing to help Savage's cause with a low blow. This left Rodman open to a chain-covered fist, which knocked him out, allowing Savage to get the pin. After the defeat, Rodman journeyed out of WCW, and never returned, later retiring from basketball.

He has occassionally been seen in the wrestling ring, including fighting Curt Hennig for the i-Generation Championship in July '00. It is unknown, though, if Rodman is still involved in the wrestling business, or if he is enjoying his retirement from the sport where he was a star.
