Threats & Synergies
Pantheon's passive blocks Warwick's Qs and autos, making it very hard to deal with. However, with Warwick's sustain and E, you can survive his burst and maybe win in a fight.
Olaf's sustain is on par with Warwick's. Olaf, pre-six, is not much of a threat. But Olaf's ult renders Warwick's E and R useless. Make sure to fight when his ult is on CD.
Jax v Warwick is somewhat of an even match up. But if Jax or you get a lead, the lane is pretty much over. His counter-strike is a deadly ability, play around his CD.
Renek is very similar to Jax. Warwick can survive Renek's burst with his E, but if Renek gets a lead the lane will become much harder.
Pre level 2, Riven can be a huge threat as she can outdamage you easily. But you can 1v1 level 2. Make sure to hold Q when her 3rd Q is about to knock you up, to nullify the CC.
