C. JOSEPH HOFFMAN: Top spot feud did not even last a week.  MC vs. NB was
a decent idea, but badly done.  Russo vs. Flair was a waste of talent on
Flair's part.

HIRO: Of course there are far worst feuds than these, but the fact that
the WWF continued these feuds way past their sell-by date was atrocious. I
don't know if Chris Jericho vs Kane actually qualifies for this year's
awards, but if it continues way past Armageddon, then it certainly would
win next year.

SAMUEL SKLAROFF: Any feud that gets started over spilt coffee is a
candidate for "Worst Feud" in my book.

JASON BOUGGER: The ECW v. the Network fued practically ran the promotion
into the ground.

JASON:  What can I say?  I'm a Jerichoholic and I hate the way he's being

ADAM FROM TORONTO: Hmmn. A manager whose best days were with The Natural
Disasters fighting a regional DJ in a national promotion. Get out the
"Standing Room Only Signs".

J3R CR0WE: Anything involving David Arquette should be forgotten
completely and the people who came up with it should be shot. But, I hate
Bossman with such a passion that a feud anywhere near the top of the card
sickens me, so he gets number 1.

ROBERT STRUPP: Take your pick from the "Files of Vince Russo Desperately
Trying To Get Himself Over"... though, I guess the Flair feud was the most
depressing given how good Flair actually was.

DEVON: My first choice here needs no explanation.  I picked Triple H vs.
Angle because the WWF killed the great Jericho vs. Triple feud to do it.  
Also, the Triple H/Angle feud put Triple H into a face role, which he is
really not good in.  Finally, I really couldn't have given a shit whom
Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley ended up with.

CHRISTOPHER GRIFFIN: I put this simply because of Vince Russo's
blowjobbing of "worked-shoots"

GREGG MIXDORF: This was also a difficult category due to the fact that I
don't watch much WCW because of Mark Madden.  These probably weren't the
worst feuds of the year since I'm sure those happened in WCW but since I
didn't actually witness those I had to give a feud with Chyna the nod
since she sucks.

SCOTT W.: That whole New Blood vs. Millionaires thing was terrible.  What
ever happened to that anyways? Sting and Vampiro.  Bleh.  Gene and Mark
Madden.  more Bleh.

DONNIE VOMIT: This fued from hell spawned something like 90% negative
stars matches, so I'll give the nod to Sting and Vamp.  Tazz vs. Jerry
Lawler only served to elevate an semi retired wrestler over one of my
favorite wrestlers.  And Goldberg vs. Vince Russo allowed Russo to both a)
win the world title, and b) get his face on TV.

MARCUS SPARKS: Actually, my first choice should really be WCW booking v.
LOGIC and SENSE. That lacking, I'll take the most blatant idiocy as a
prime example of such. Okerlund v. Madden... why?  WHAT WAS THE POINT?  
What was the objective?  Same with the Tazz v. Lawler feud... what was the
point?  It sure didn't help get Tazz over...

JOHN C.: I'm still crying over the fact that I actually witnessed the
Patterson vs. Brisco feud. Big Show vs. Big Bossman was horrendous and I'm
still trying to figure out why WCW even tried the Vampiro/Demon feud in
the first place.

AL RITCHIE: (Millionaires v. NB) A sensible feud, except that they cast
the wrong side as heels, and couldn't decide who should be on which side.

ANDY P. GOSS: No one cared about X-Pac v. Road Dogg, and its sole purpose
was to turn Dogg face.  This could've easily been accomplished by having
him abandon X-Pac during a match.  Tank Abbott and Big Al was a confusing
feud that had no place on a PPV, had zero buildup of one of the
characters, and ended in the Worst Match of the Year IMO.  And the Big
Boss Man/Big Show feud is already in WrestleCrap.  Nuff said.

STEVE GUM: Kane vs. anybody but UT equals a yawn


GEORGE JOHNSON: Dean Malenko vs. a couple of chicks.  Are you sure Russo
didn't write this?

LCDRKODIAS: That whole New Blood vs Millionaires was hosed from the start,
making the geezers the faces.  The other 2 were top guys proving that they
could beat up midcarders.

PETER HAZLETT: Who cares? Who cares? and not again!!!

JOE GAGNE: I don?t even remember what Sting and Vampiro were fighting
about.  I do remember that it led to awful Graveyard and Inferno matches.  
What a waste of two good wrestlers.  The ECW/Network feud was highly
repetitive and boring, and was a big reason why I stopped watching ECW
altogether.  The X-Pac/Road Dogg feud was pointless and then quickly

BOB MORRIS: The Hogan/Kidman feud had potential to be good, but when it
got to the point where all it was was Kidman bumping around for Hogan, it
did Kidman no good at all. He isn't in a better position in WCW than he
was when the feud began, and wasn't the whole point of the feud to elevate
him? Sadly, WCW failed miserably to elevate Kidman with this terrible

TROY OLSON: Special mention to Beetlejuice vs. Jarrett.  That little guy
was so cute, though.

JEREMY DELINE: The worst kind of Feud is one that stretches on and on, has
ludicrous situations, no drama or fan interest, buries worthy wrestlers
and causes recurring spasms whenever brought up in Conversation. Case in
Point: Vampiro and the Demon, which led to all kinds of silliness, had no
conclusion, ended with neither man being elevated, etc. The Terri-Kat feud
was a sign that the WWF was just as capable of churning asinine, boring
feuds out as WCW. the added bonus of course being that because neither
Terri or the Kat is actually a wrestler, every time they get in the ring,
the fans are guarenteed some truly horrible wrestling! But who cares,
right? I mean, you get to see women catfighting? booty-shaking in the
ring! Titty-Jiggling! woman-on-woman stinkfacing! Hey............where are
you going....? Come back!.......

NATHAN LONEY: Hogan/Kidman?  Waste of time, waste of tv time, waste of
money.  A feud based on a shoot, and like most other shoots, this one
sucked, too.  Hogan still found a way to get himself over.  Mancow/Jimmy
Hart fits right in there.  I can't stand Mansuck, and Jimmy Hart isn't
going to change that.  And Abbott/Big Al is notable for being the only
time you'll hear a competitor say, "I could fuckin' kill you right now."  
Three votes, three examples of horrible feuds.

BILL LEHECKA:  I just don't care enough to write about how much the Big
Boss Man sucks, so I won't give my opinion here.

NATE PATRIN: It's bad when commentators and second-rate radio show hosts
fight, but when possibly the best ECW Champion ever gets constantly jobbed
to... to... L...La... Law... I can't finish. Sorry.

MATT SPAULDING: Millionaires' Club vs. NeW blOod was a "smart" angle that
would have worked if Russo and Bischoff had actually done what the smarks
wanted and made the Millionaires the *heels*.  Who was supposed to be the
face, Kidman or Douglas?  And why Kanyon would want Buff Bagwell's mom as
his valet when WCW has hotties growing on trees still stumps me.  Fourth
is Hogan/Kidman, which wasn't so much a feud as it was Kidman getting his
brains beaten in for two months.

KEVIN SMITH: Big Show/Bossman - could this feud have been any more
offensive to any wider group of people?

TANVIR RAQUIB: Watch a third rate promotion with fifth rate production
values plummet even more by stealing a money making idea from both the WWF
and wCw!  Originality can kiss off, I tell ya.

MIKE PLYLEY: Tazz v Lawler could actually been worthwhile, only if they'd
had Tazz squash Lawler at SummerSlam and move on.  By having Lawler (and
JR, for god's sake!) punk him out at every oppurtunity, they made Tazz
look like a complete joke (well, moreso than they already had.)  And now
what's Tazz doing?  Announcing Sunday Night Heat, he must be overjoyed.  
Patterson and Brisco needs no explanation.  Tank Abbott and Big Al was
utterly stupid.  Who the hell was Big Al supposed to be, anyway?  And why
was anyone supposed to care?

JOHN DONALDSON:  What can I say, these two members of D-X had a friendly
rivalry, but it looks like they could care less about whether they won or
lost their feud, they just looked like they wanted to get paid and that
was all.  Some of the New Blood were old guys and some of the Millionaires
Club was poor, this feud was lumped together and ill planned and made me
wonder why did these guys feud with one another.  Part of the ECW vs The
Network War included a feud between two non-wrestlers, Joel Gertner and
Cyrus.  There's nothing worse than Joel Gertner with a bare chest costumed
like Kamala, urggghh.

JEFF "FRO" WAHLMAN: Once again WWF tops Russo with Mae Young & Moolah v.s.
Ivory.  Russo stinkers like Tank v.s. Big Al and Vampiro v.s. THE KISS

THE CUBS FAN: You know, if we had to deal with the build up to the Nitro
Girls/Nitro Girls mud match, we should've at least got the mud match.
