We're talking about the NWA / WCW Tag Team Division - one regarded as being well on a par with the WWF's of the time (if not a step above). Vince envied them sufficiently to create his own version of the Road Warriors AND brought in the tribute Midnight Rockers AND also raided the ones with the WWF look; like the LOD, Brainbusters, Samoan Swat Team... and the Steiner Brothers! The Steiners were that highly regarded by VKM, he neither rebranded them or buried them.

Jim Neidhart and Rick Steiner were both portrayed as powerhouses but Rick's technical prowess from his amateur days was always played up as well. As to your assertions about Bret and Scotty - we are not talking about who they would go onto be, we're talking about their tag team versions and the simple fact is that the Steiners who appeared in the three top promotions of their time and faced every major contemporary team that they feasibly could lost less than 9 of every 100 matches... the Hart Foundation lost 1 in 3 despite only facing Stampede and WWF opponents.
