Default Re: When did the WWF/E World Title surpass the NWA/WCW World Title in prestige?

You can argue which title you thought was more prestigious in the 80s when Flair and Hogan dominated but once the NWA separated from WCW in the early 90s it never had the recognition it had in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. So my answer is the early 90s for the NWA title.

Now the WCW Championship gained the recognition in the mainstream once NWA cut its ties with the company. However, when they put the belt on an actor that was just one of the lowest circumstances for a World Title ever in mainstream wrestling. So 2000s for the WCW title.
