    Not including Triple H or Steve Austin, out of these options, who from WCW do you consider to have been the most successful when they went to WWE?

    I think I've listed the main people that could be chosen. I know I've left out some but I feel guys like Hall, Nash & DDP are doubtful to be considered the most successful WCW stars in WWE. I'm interested to know peoples opinions on who out of these major names had the most success in their time in the WWE (after WCW's demise).

    Eric Bischoff (as RAW GM)
    Hulk Hogan (2002 onwards)
    Goldberg
    Chris Jericho (ongoing)
    Booker T
    Ric Flair
    Chris Benoit
    Eddie Guerrero

    I know Hogan and Flair started on WWE but I'm want you to consider they started on WCW and not WWE.

    In my opinion, you didn't list the most successful one:

    The Undertaker.

    I think you could probably stick Undertaker in the HHH and Austin spector. Austin started in WCW as well. Also, Flair didn't start in WWE...he started in NWA/WCW and then went to WWE in 1991 and then came back after WCW was finished. Anywho...

    I think Booker T and Benoit are good argument but I'll take Chris Jericho on this one. First ever Undisputed Champ, former 7 time IC champ and also won the Tag titles.

    I think Rey Mysterio has been one of the more sucessful since WCW.

    I forgot about Mysterio. Former World Champ and WWE Tag Champ. I don't know if he's been AS successful as some of those other guys but he's definitely worth mentioning.

    Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley were both in WCW before coming to the WWF.

    Of course, Foley was already fairly popular by that time. He just got huge in WWF.

    Foley definitely made his name in ECW. People knew who he was when he came to WWE. Unlike some people.

    His US title reign wasnt very good though haha. He was given the belt and then lost to Hacksaw Jim Duggan in under 30 seconds to lose it.

    The Undertaker and Chris Jericho are among the most successful in my opinion. The Undertaker has some many great title reigns in the WWE and now he arguably has the biggest fanbase out of anyone in the company. Chris Jericho holds the record for most Intercontinental Title reigns with 7 and is the first ever and also the longest reigning Undisputed Champion
