I always hear what killed WCW or what was done to kill WCW, but I have thought of a couple things that came out of a great company at one time before it was bought by WWE in 2001.
There are a few things that might catch your eye if they haven't already about this company and the positive side of it.
When you think of World Championship Wrestling, you think of something that could have been great if it was done right, I think we can all agree on that subject.
Here are the five top things to me that made WCW positive.
5. There was a good Tag Team Division
World Championship Wrestling was full of them, tag teams I mean, and they had one of the strongest tag divisions I had ever seen. No matter if it was the start of WCW or the end, they had a tag team division.
The Anderson brothers, The Briscos, Rock "N" Roll Express, The Midnight Express, Varsity Club, The Freebirds, Steiner Brothers, Doom, Hollywood Blonds, Nasty Boys, Harlem Heat, Outsiders, Kronik and The Insiders were some of the greats in the WCW who would also hold the Tag Team titles.
The teams came by the dozen when you look at teams, even though there were those factions the teams came that company together.
4. History was made
Ron Simmons became the first African-American World Champion in wrestling history and much deserved as he would work his way quietly to becoming the World Champion beating Vader.
Simmons is one of the greats in the business but is under-appreciated for what he did in wrestling. The man made history in WCW when racial champions were questionable at that time WCW would make history.
Simmons would go on to work in the WWE but never got that attention he did in WCW. That is why Simmons was a true WCW superstar and became only a tag team wrestler after his Nation of Domination run.
3. Deserving World Champions
Some of the wrestlers in the company won the World title and much deserved to do it because of the hard work they put into there career.
Diamond Dallas Page, Booker T, Chris Benoit, Sting, Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, and Randy Savage were guys that might have never held a World title or held one in another company but got another shot or got their first shot.
I think one of the best and decorated WCW World Champions was Booker T.
2. Cruiserweight Division
Some of the greatest little men in WCW held the title or showed us why even though Eric didn't care much for them, but the Cruiserweight's were something to watch.
Brian Pillman, Rey Mysterio, Dean Malenko, X-Pac, Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero, Juventud Guerrera, Billy Kidman, Psychosis, Lance Storm, Chavo Guerrero, Shane Helms, and Elix Skipper were some of the high flyers who excited us watching WCW.
Some of them became Multi-Cruiserweight Champions and held that title with honor as it was their World Championship.
1. Bill Goldberg
No matter what it was that brought Bill Goldberg in, this man was built right. He was the perfect wrestler in a company that needed one.
Goldberg was one of those guys you had to tune in and watch each week to see what he would do next and I was one of those people.
Bill was on top of his game not even a year into his career were he won the World Championship nearly a year into his career at a 108-0.
If there was one man that truly beat every man on a wrestling roster, it was Bill Goldberg. Goldberg held only six losses when WCW was bought by the WWE.
I think in my opinion Goldberg was the best thing that came out of WCW. Period.
