Rey, Guerrero, Benoit, all those former WCW guys had success on Smackdown. Booker T became a main eventer once he went to Smackdown.
Also, let's not forget the Rock cleanly put Goldberg over. So it ain't like they were burying every WCW guys.
Your examples for WWF using WCW Talent all occurred either before WWF bought out WCW or years after. Yes yes Booker T did main event with the rock however he was made to look second class next to the rock and never posed a real threat. He hardly got any offense in during their Summer Slam match.
During the invasion angle the WCW and ECW guys were made to look inferior to basically any WWF wrestler
