Barry Windham and Mike Rotunda as tag partners were two time WWE tag team champions around 1984-1985. They were actually a very talented and extremely popular tag team at the time. It just seems that despite their tremendous popularity as a tag team that their legacy as a tag team seems to have dwindled over time. Maybe it is because they were not a tag team for many years but just a few.

Re: Guys who were better in WCW than WWF

I can't believe people are saying Rude. I know he won the International Title in WCW, but his IC run and "Simply Ravishing" were awesome and way over in WWF.

Re: Guys who were better in WCW than WWF

Lord Steven Regal instantly comes to mind. Loved him in WCW. Couldn't stand him for much of his WWE career.

Saturn & Malenko.

Windham, Steamboat, Giant, Vader, Raven.....lots of guys.

Definitely Big Show

He always looked intimidating in WCW, where he's been booked to look like a naive goof in the WWE almost the exact moment he stepped foot there.

Re: Guys who were better in WCW than WWF

Lex Luger has to be at the top of the list.


Despite his push being forced in both companies, at least WCW knew how to use him and that wasn't as a Hulk Hogan replacement. He was able to "grow" naturally in WCW and was constantly put in situations where he could shine. Goes to WWF and Vince's dick gets hard, thinking he has the next Hogan. Total failure.


Luger is one of those guys that could only work in certain elements and it helped that, throughout his WCW run, it was usually somebody in power that was backing him, be it Dusty, Jim Herd or the fact that WCW wanted to do right by his best friend, Sting, which is how Luger came back in the first place and was immediately given a good position on the roster.



The Steiner Brothers are right behind Luger.


Others include:


Dusty Rhodes---Yeah, I'm going back to the Crockett days and while he may have been at the end in his WWF career, the guy was a multi time World Champion and looked anything but in WWF.

Jeff Jarrett---Not a big fan of his but I can't deny that WCW (and Russo) treated him pretty damn good.

Barry Windham---Ignore the US Express in the 80s, due to it being a tag team. Windham had 3 singles runs in WWF and I bet nobody can name anything memorable from either one. Compare that to WCW/Crockett, where all the Windham praise comes from.


I'll think of more later.

Re: Guys who were better in WCW than WWF

Jarrett I can't put on this list. He had as many IC Title runs as Henry VIII had wives, and I value the IC belt more than the WWF title itself. Goldberg is my response.

Re: Guys who were better in WCW than WWF

I'm quite positive I'm not the only one that thinks 3 World Titles and having the show built around you in WCW is better than 6 IC Titles that see you stuck in the mid card, which was partly responsible for you leaving on 3 different occasions.


Career wise, it's quite obvious WCW used him better. He finally got to main event.
