I was a much bigger NWA fan than WWF fan during this time period, but I preferred the Danny Davis heel turn by a significant amount.  Neither Long nor Davis were fantastic on the mic (Long has improved but even as GM now I'm not crazy about him) but Davis had Jimmy Hart as his mouthpiece whereas Long did most of his talking himself.  Davis also looked like he could physically mix it up with guys even though he was booked mainly as a jobber (after the angle cooled off he was a full-fledged jobber for a while until being reinstated), whereas Long did the awful comedy matches with other managers.  I thought the Davis angle was built up better and just had better execution.  Davis also cost both Tito the I-C title to Savage (at the very beginning of the angle, very subtle) and the Bulldogs the Tag titles to the Harts, so it had greater impact.
