They're two very different metagames.
The reason for these Pokemon's usage in nUU didn't have anything to do with their high performance in UU, or nothing to do with their overall performance in general. They all just found specific niches the in new tier; Steelix could counter Raikou while also other Physical hard hitters, Froslass' performance was enhanced with Abomasnow, etc. In 'old UU' these specifics were inexistent and therefore, so was their high usage in comparison to the the more powerful BL Pokemon.
ie; the old UU being "screwed up" had nothing to do with the Pokemon in it, but rather, the Pokemon not.
