I'd say Hogan. He was the top star of WWF and ushered in a boom. Was the top star of WcW and ushered in a boom.

That wasn't a burial. At that time they didn't at all acknowledge any American competition, which they still don't. To many fans of that era he was just another Million Dollar Man. Those kids did not have a clue about Mid-Atlantic or Starrcade. But he still found himself a two time WWF champion when that belt rarely changed hands.

Re: Most successful wrestler over more than one territory?

IDK, when I think Territory I think of the AWA, NWA, and WWWF(WWF/WWE) days. WCW I guess could be considered a Territory because it branded itself southern but at that time Turner wanted a National Brand to compete with McMahan. I'd throw Territories out the window from the late 80's on. Guys like RVD, Angle and so on switched Promotions more than they have Territories.

Guys like Hall, Nash, Hogan, Flair, and Ventura switched Territories and were successful. Scott Hall was a pretty big AWA star in the Mid/Late 80's before moving to the WWF. I'm pretty sure I missed other AWA, NWA, and WWWF(WWF) stars at that time that moved between Territories.

Re: Most successful wrestler over more than one territory?

I'm confused. Are we talking about different territories or different companies?

Because some of the bigger names would work multiple territories. Take Ric Flair for example. As NWA Champion, he often worked Florida, Georgia, Mid Atlantic, Central States and Texas, among others. That's what I define as territories.


But, if we're talking about companies, I'm split between Hogan & Rob Van Dam. Hogan was huge in AWA, WWE and WCW, for the majority of 3 decades. Rob Van Dam was likely the biggest attraction in ECW and some view his TV Title reign as being a bigger draw than the ECW Champion of that time. From there, he went to WWE, accomplished a lot, including being the most cheered heel in the company, before finally winning the WWE Title a few years later. From there, he went to TNA and has been quite successful. Again, like Hogan, he's had large amounts of success over the past 3 decades.

Re: Most successful wrestler over more than one territory?

Terry Funk is a damn good suggestion, especially since he was never a booker and got by more so on his talent.

A lot of people don't understand what a territory is.
