- The whole run, really. The unmasking of The Halloween Phantom as Rick Rude drew a huge reaction, and everything just picked up from there.
- Rude's year-long run as WCW United States Heavyweight Champion. There wouldn't really be anything like that again until Rob Van Dam's epic 23-month run as ECW World Television Champion.
- The Sting's Squadron (Sting/Ricky Steamboat/Barry Windham/Dustin Rhodes/Nikita Koloff)-The Dangerous Alliance War Games match at WCW WrestleWar 1992. A bloody, violent classic and the last great War Games match.
- WCW firing Paul E. in early 1993 meant that the group would never be recycled with inferior talent, unlike what happened to The Four Horsemen.
