I don't think it's 100% clear in either case. I know these two fights were causing some folks to be skeptical. And I can understand why; Simon is often touted as the next best thing to Thor, and Thor put a hurtin' on Korg's entire crew of Kronans, while Ms. Marvel has beaten a whole Brood hive before.
Although we see them engaged in combat and later see MM and WM laid out, it's possible there was more to it.
For instance, if Korg had Simon on the ropes (as he seemed to after that one double punch), the Hulk could have turned around after laying Samson out and helped Korg finish Wonder Man.
Or one of the other Warbound may have gotten in on the action.
Same with Carol's Brood fight.

I just assumed that the Hulk helped finish off most everyone. Given how easily Hulk took down She-Hulk, Thing, and Ares I don't see any reason he couldn't have run the gauntlet on the entire lot of Avengers. Korg could potentially take down Wonderman and Hiriom might be able to take down Luke Cage but I don't see any of the other Warbound winning their matches. Of course this is something we will never know for sure unless its covered in a issue of another title.

And about the Korg vs Thor thing. In Planet Hulk I recall Korg saying he was young and inexperienced then. He also stated that the reason the Kronans fled was b/c they thought the entire planet was populated with people just like Thor.

Well, given the number of superhumans that live on earth, they weren't really inaccurate in that assessment.

The thing is Wondy is and always has been a jobber.Yes yes he's always mentioned in the Thor catagory but the truth is his win/loss record is abysmal for a *thor* type. He's the terrax of the avengers just like Ares is \:D
Hiroim should be able to give Thor a good fight, let alone Cage, the Oldstrong powers plus a Warbound Shadow training + gladiator training. He's a very powerful guy.
Korg is probably cl 100 on Earth with vast ammounts of experience- remember he was putting the Hurt on Hulk the first time they met and were peers for a while untill Hulk started getting used to Sakaar.
Brood is obviously an Elite caste but yes she Elloe and Meik are the weakest links but Elloe has Sakaar tech and Meik's powers are undetermined.

Simon hasn't been touted as the next best thing to Thor for like a couple of decades. The Kronans Thor beat where young unexperienced kronans, Korg's now n adult (and therefor arguably a lot stronger and more durable than in his youth) battlehardnend gladiator. The Brood is (as said in the Heroes for Hire out next week) not a regulare Brood but a queen brood. Both Korg and the Brood 'd be dead if they wheren't tough mofos.

Let's assume the Brood queen got no help from the Hulk or anyone else. Could she take Ms. Marvel one on one? I didn't think a Brood queen is that potent, but I'm far from an expert.

...but admittedly I do not know the full extent of a Brood Queen's powers/physical capabilities. With Korg and Wonderman, we have two combatants of similar physical capabilities going hand-to-hand, which should favor the Kronan due to his gladiatorial experience. The Brood of the Warbound did not appear to possess vast physical power during her limited exposure in the battlefields of Sakaar, whereas Carol is a class-50+ combatant with a bevy of other superhuman powers at her disposal. It is my opinion (one that seems commonplace) that the Brood had some intervention or assistance by her fellow Warbound in taking out Carol.
