From around 2000-2002, both WCW and WWE tried to make Scott Steiner "the guy", but he faded out quickly. When he came to WWE, it seemed like they were trying to set him up as Triple H's long-term foil. Then Royal Rumble 2002.

WCW kinda' hung their hat with Booker T in 2000, but his run was fairly brief, in retrospect. When he came to WWF/E in 2001, he always seemed to be involved in the main event scene, but they never really ran with him. It's debatable if "King Booker" in 2006 qualifies as making him "the guy".

Going back to the 80's, "Iceman" King Parsons seemed to be one who was usually up there, but never the clear #1.
