CHRIS WILCOX: It was kind of disappointing to put down New Blood Rising as
the worst show of the year, since it fell on my birthday, but I've never
been more pissed off at a match as I was at Lance Storm vs Mike Awesome,
so I have to vote it first.  Russo, do us all a favor and kindly slit your
wrists, or drink some vodka and sleeping pills, or something.  Well, don't
do that, but please have nothing to do with wrestling ever again after you
inevitably get fired.  Thank you.

JUSTIN McGROTTY: didn't chose any because I am too lazy to go back and see
what all the shows were. but I am sure that WCW ones are all the top 3 for

JASON:  Still no PPV here.  :-(

ALEX GIPSON: Hey, any show like WCW Great American Bash that really
delivers on the "Vince McMahon can't do anything about it" Goldberg heel
turn needs no explanation. After all, we all know how well THAT turned

SCOTT W.: This past Halloween Havoc was a "Please can I have my money back
ppv. "  New Blood Rising SUCKED.. I mean.  I know they needed to reinvent
themselves, for like the zillion-th time, but I am not a fan of stripping
titles.  To be the champ, beat the champ.  Slamboree gets the other nod.  
I also still have those flashbacks called Heros of Wrestling PPV.  UGH!!!

BEANS: I don't think I've watched enough PPVs (about 4 this year) to
comment on this.

REISMARK: WCW saved the worst of its crap until three days before the date
for consideration. Whoopee.

AL RITCHIE: I haven't watched enough PPVs to render an honest judgement.  
I know you're disappointed.

JON WALTON: I wish I could have voted for "breaching of kayfabe,
intelligence and wrestling tradition." But instead I just voted for three
grievous examples of it (the shoots, Arquette and Smackdown the Vote"

SCOTT CRAWFORD: Having not seen a lot of major shows this year, I'm
skipping this one.

MARKUS: I *know* there's a WCW PPV that sucked ass more than KoTR, but not
having actually seen any, I can't really cast votes for them...but man,
what a disappointment KoTR was...

JAMES HOWARD: Ha! If I didn't pay money to see the shows listed under the
*Best* Major Show category, I sure as hell wasn't going to pay money to
see *this* list. :)

GEORGE JOHNSON: KoTR was the epitome of wasted potential.  Souled Out was
the culmination of the worst month in WCW's history.

LCDRKODIAS: Don't get to see PPV's since I work on Sunday nights.

JOE GAGNE: No WWF PPV I saw this year angered me enough to vote it as the
worst.  I?m sure WCW will clean up here, but I didn?t see any of their
PPVs, so I won?t vote for them (I?ll leave that to the poor dopes that
actually watched them).

RICK SCAIA: Souled Out is my choice for worst major show of the year.  On
one hand, it did feature Chris Benoit's World Title victory over Sid; but
on the other, it featured little to no good wrestling, and was the product
of a company in so much disarray (after Vince Russo parted ways with the
company) that Benoit didn't even want to stick around to defend the title
he won even one time (he instead tossed aside the WCW title and jumped to
the WWF with the rest of the Radicalz two weeks later).

CHRISTIAN HARRIS: I can only get WWF PPVs in Britain, so haven't seen
WCW/ECW PPVs.  I liked all the WWF PPVs in some way, so it's hard topick a
'wors' one.

BILL LEHECKA: Take your pick with any WCW show the past year.  Havoc gets
my 1st place vote since it's freshest in my mind.

MATT SPAULDING: This was literally a toss-up for me.  SubParBrawl won out
when the coin came up heads, though Uncensored may have actually been the
worse show.  New Blood Rising is an easy fourth.

LAWRENCE BENEDETTO: Pick a show, any wcw show.

MIKE PLYLEY: The genius that is Kevin Sullivan reared its ugly head for
hopefully the final time, with the first three WCW PPV's of the year not
coincidentally being the worst of the year.

JEFF "FRO" WAHLMAN: No vote here because WCW is so bad and uninteresting
it's hard to remember which PPV was the worst.
