Lanham, Md., native Lio Rush's appearance at the MCW Pro Wrestling event Aug. 12 in Joppa, Md., is being billed as his final match on the independent wrestling scene, as he reportedly has signed with WWE/NXT.

Rush is the latest Maryland-born pro wrestler to make a name for himself on the national stage, as he's already had a noteworthy stint in Ring of Honor. With that in mind, here are my rankings of the top 10 pro wrestling stars from Maryland (Rush just missed making the list, but the 22-year-old hasn't even been wrestling for three years). The rankings are based the level of stardom a performer has achieved on a national level in their respective eras.
