One of WCWIts greatest strength is its memorable stable. In particular, The Four Horseman has set a template for the dominant, skilled and fashionable group that many groups will try to emulate decades of style to follow. The New World Order, meanwhile, modernized the concept in the late 1990’s with aesthetics, proving to be the best draw, merchandise movers, and storytelling tool in the history of wrestling.
Some of the WCW stables have individual great members who uplifted the whole group, or fully embodied what the team as a whole felt. The other group had a memorable key member who was showing a fall किंवा or at least a step down बद्दल about what he was doing at the time.
10 Worst: Paul Roma in the Four Horses
The history of the four cavalry was unequal, not every version of the group was created uniformly. Early iterations, consisting of Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard and Ole Anderson or Barry Windham, were the largest wrestling groups of all time. Over the years, the group has had more experimental members, such as Lex Lugar, Sting or Sid Vesius, who worked at different levels, setting different angles.
Before a contract dispute arose on the way back to WCW in 1993, Paul Roma filled a vacancy that seemed to belong to Tully Blanchard. Roma didn’t have the etiquette or the ring skills to guess what Blanchard brought into the group. Add real-life personality struggles with Flair and others, and Roma is firmly behind the depressed members like Steve McMahon, who at least got The Nature Boy’s support to join the group after the show.
9 Best: Hulk Hogan in the NWO
When he returned to WCW in 1996, the outsiders planted remarkable heat. Indeed, it is not clear that the New World Order would have flourished without Scott Hall and Kevin Nash.
Hulk Hogan turned his heel to join them at Bash at the Beach which sent the group into the stratosphere. His turn became a hot topic in the wrestling world, and he immediately rose to the top to ensure that nWo would be the main event together most of the time.
8 Worst: Big T in Harlem Heat
The Harlem Heat is best remembered as the underage tag team of the Booker T and Stevie Ray brothers. The group includes Sister Sherry, Jacqueline and J. Biggs was included as manager. He also starred in Midnight and Big T in wrestling roles.
Most of the add-ons in the Harlem Heat Fold were from adding an interesting extra dimension to innocence, while the former Ahmed Johnson, billed as the Big Tea, was installed as a replacement for the Babyface Booker Tea, in which Booker lost a match. For the right to include “T” in their name. While Booker was a more athletic, larger personality that complemented his brother’s hulking Big Man act, Big T was bigger and more limited than Steve.
7 Best: The Giant in the Dungeon of Doom
The Dungeon of Doom has become a punchline in the history of wrestling as an outdated, cartoonish group that pioneered WCW modernization with The New World Order. Indeed, fans remember him for his silly wordplay set in his “dungeon” and for his efforts to effectively combine power with The Horseman to form a terrifying alliance to end the Hulkamania Super Group.
A bright spot for the group, however, was introducing Paul Witt to the national audience as The Giant. The big man single-handedly lifted the group’s collective resume, won the World Cup in his first match, and is generally one of the stagnant members to win more high profile matches than he lost.
6 Worst: Jim Duggan in Team Canada
Lance Storm in the leadership role in Team Canada, the young Alex waiting in the wings, and Mike Awesome were his real WCW working geniuses with the unit.
Jim Duggan was a fundamentally flawed piece of the group. He was unnatural in the role of heel up to this point in his career, and one of his defining gimmicks was long overdue as an American patriot, which made him feel like a square peg in a goal hole in Team Canada.
5 Best: Avalanche in three faces of fear
Three Faces of Fear was the forerunner of Dungeon of Doom, which took a little more gravity in its time, which made the group better focused and positioned as a slightly more credible threat to Hulk Hogan.
While The Butcher was hard to buy as a World Championship contender and Kevin Sullivan did not have a good place at the top of the card, newcomer John Tenta, wrestling as an avalanche, was deceptively the key to the group. His size, WWE pedigree, and new arrivals all made him more credible than the rest of the team, and his history with Hogan made him a logical contributor to the group battle with Top Babyface.
4 Worst: Road Warrior creatures in the grand seven
In the last days of WCW, Magnificent Seven’s top heel was stable. In the group, Scott Steiner was featured as the world champion and Rick Flair as the figurehead leader for most of the group’s runs, and although Buff Bagwell and Rick Steiner did not fit the upper eye population, their respective connections to the Big Poppa pump made sense. From there, Jeff Jarrett and Lex Lugar were cast as legal top talent with world title credentials.
When Road Warrior Animal was a veteran tag team wrestler, it seemed a bit silly to cast him as a group executor when he had never established himself as a credible single wrestler and had a comparative powerhouse around him. Sin felt his revelation as a mysterious man in the PPV 2001, in particular.
3 Best: Terry Funk in Stud Stable
Colonel Rob Parker’s stud stable was devoted to brawls with top and mid-card babyfaces in the mid-1990s, featuring particularly long beef Dustin Rhodes featuring matches in the War Games. Several notable talents, including Steve Austin and Arn Anderson, entered the group categories. Meng and Bunkhouse Buck were key members as key contributors to Parker’s WCW run.
Terry Funk fits the stupid sensibilities of The Stud Stable and adds credibility to the former Jagjata and experienced player who is highly respected by the WCW audience. He was an influential icon in the wrestling business and while he was part of the group, it was not a highlight for his career, it was a highlight for the group.
2 Worst: Grand George in Team Madness
Randy Savage’s forgotten WCW group Team Madness was far from the best work of The Macho Man in wrestling, but it helped him win the World Cup and featured an interesting combination of talents. Along with Sid Visius and Madusa, Sthira introduced fans to Miss Madness (known as Molly Holly) as well as Gorgeous George.
Gorgeous George was a dancer with whom Savage had befriended in real life and he gave her the famous wrestling name that he had licensed. Even though she was innocuous in her role (and exceeded all expectations in an oddball match with Charles Robinson), she could not compare what the other members of the group brought to the table.
1 Best: Diamond Dallas Page in Jersey Triad
Jersey Triad offers a unique combination of talents between Diamond Dallas Page, Chris Canyon and Bam Bam Bigelo. Although fans forget Canyon and how far he was ahead of his time, the group offered one of the best spotlights for his talent at Prime. The group was a great application for Bigelow’s credibility and unparalleled look, as he was low in the ring. Then there was the DDP.
While it is debatable whether Page may have acted as a heel during his popular WCW run, he still shines with two talented running backs – the player and primary speaker featured for this three-man unit.
