Who ruled '90s pro wrestling: WWF or WCW? | The Tylt
While the WWE is the pinnacle of professional wrestling today, the '90s were a different story. The WWF and WCW shared the spotlight in the '90s and fans were torn over which promotion ruled the grappling world. The WWF had dramatic storylines, featuring Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, the Undertaker and host of other stars. The WCW had gritty shows with Bill Goldberg, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Sting leading the way. Which promotion was better? 🤼
Who ruled '90s pro wrestling: WWF or WCW?
There's a reason the WWF survived to buy out the WCW. Not only was it a better run promotion, but the product quality was also superior as well.
You couldn't find superstars like Shawn Michaels or the Undertaker in the WCW. The WWF had the Attitude Era, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock, pushing the company to new heights—all while the WCW pushed aging wrestlers and became obsolete. The WWF was the better professional wrestling company.
The WWF might have had the brand power, but real wrestling fans knew the WCW was where you went for actual drama.
Ric Flair, Diamond Dallas Paige, Sting, Goldberg and eventually the nWo ruled wrestling with their collective antics. Matches between icons and legends were regularly put together on pay-per-view events and dwarfed anything the WWF did in the '90s. The WCW was the superior product!
