When you think of WCW, who is the first person to come into your mind?

Watching back at some old school WCW (NWA/Jim Crockett Promotions), it got me thinking, "When you heard WCW, who was the first person you thought of"?

Mine has to be without a doubt, Ric Flair.

You can make arguments for the likes of Sting or Hogan or Goldberg or Luger or nWo or Bischoff or Turner but I truly feel and believe that WCW wouldn't have been the company it was had it been for a pinnacle wrestler in the Nature Boy. He is the gold standard of what a true franchise player was. Whether it was from his heel runs as the World champion or his intentions with the Four Horsemen or to the guy always cutting eccentric and iconic promos to the matches that we go back and watch to this day, I truly believe the Ric Flair is WCW and WCW is Ric Flair.

What person comes to mind when you think of WCW?

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Nature Boy Ric Flair. With Sting in a close second.

Sting. Mainly because I started watching WCW when he began feuding with the NWO under The Crow gimmick. So many classic memories from 1997.

I was a kid when I discovered WCW around 98, But for some reason whenever I think of WCW I think of Juvi and his theme song, For some reason my favorite theme and wrestler growing up..

Re: When you think of WCW, who is the first person to come into your mind?

When i think of NWA/Jim Crockett Promotions then i think of Ric Flair instantly because he was the main man and the person the company was built around but when NWA/JCP transitioned into WCW then i think of Sting every single time. In early 1991 Ric Flair was trying to negotiate with Vince McMahon and go to WWE because of his hatred of Jim Herd but at the same time he had already been replaced by Sting by then as the face of the company.

When people talk about someone representing WCW or the face of WCW the name that everyone always came up with was Sting and even all the ex WCW wrestlers from the early 1990's through the companies demise in 2001 call Sting "the franchise player of WCW" which tells you everything you need to know. It was Sting who carried WCW through it's transitional phase from NWA/JCP, it was Sting who carried WCW when Ric Flair wasn't in the company, it was Sting who was still the heart and soul of WCW when Hulk Hogan brought all his friends in, it was Sting who went up against The New World Order as the top star in WCW and it was Sting who was booked to win the final ever match on Nitro and all these things happened for the simple reason Sting WAS WCW.
