RYAN HALL: WWF v Alliance should win this by a larger margin than

EDDIE BURKETT: The WWF vs. WCW/ECW Alliance was a HUGE disappointment.  
Part of the reason was that Taker vs. DDP sucked alot.  Also, Undertaker's
feud with Steven Richards was too short to mean anything at all.

HIRO: WWF effectively buried Booker T by making him lose to the Rock twice
in this feud. I feel sorry for Booker, I really do. The WWF vs Alliance
feud was also disappointing, to say the least.

PAUL ZOROVICH:  Did Chris Benoit actually *have* a feud with Billy Gunn?  
Must have missed that one.

VIKRAM BIRRING: Chyna and Lita's quasi-lesbian angle was more creepy than
anything else.

SCOTT CRAWFORD: WCW/Battledome: a feud so bad, I forgot it happened, and
yet, there were WORSE ones this year.

STEPHEN TISZENKEL: I wish I could vote for "any feud involving mutual

KHENYIAN CHEUNG: In the Greek epic The Iliad the story reaches its climax
when Achilles' friend Patrocles dies at the hands of Hector, the noble
Trojan warrior.  In the epic fued of Perry Saturn vs. Raven, the fued
reaches its climax when loner Raven puts crazy Perry Saturn's love
interest (due to massive head injuries), Moppy the mop, into a wood
chipper.  'Nuff said.

CHIP BOOTS: The Taker/Page feud was an embarassment.

SCOTT WORDEN: Taker and DDP was the worst feud.. Totally booked like
crap.. DDP was not allowed any heat and we had to see Taker's wife.. Well
good for you Mark.. Do you think you would have gotten the butterface is
you were not rich?  don't think so..  Ivory and Chyna was horrid and so
was Lita vs Chyna..

JASON MEAD: The things I hated most (as noted by my selections) all
involved women.  It's not a coincidence, by the way, because the women
that are currently in wrestling all suck.

SEAN FLYNN: Steven Richards had the reverse midas touch this year.  Billy
and Chyna vs. RTC was just awful to watch as they made up the worst
interview pair in wrestling history.  RTC v. RTNudity was not only
horrible, but downright offensive to me.  I mean yeah, wrestling is a
man's soap opera, but Kitty was an embarrassment to the opposite sex and
truly degrading, even by WWF standards.  And Steven was involved, thought
the only bright spot in Kronik' s brief WWF tenure, and horrible feud with
the Fat Boys (UT/Kane)

CANZ:  I can't believe I used to have to sit though Cien Caras and Perro
Aguayo matches. And write about them.

MIKE JOHNSON: 1.  The Dueling Spankers.  Oh boy.  2.  The Kane-Albert 1/2*
classics.  Augh.  3.  Where to begin with this crap?  Yet another angle
WCW didn't think through before going with it.  What exactly is Battledome
supposed to be anyway?  Honorable mention to the "feud" involving Jesse
Ventura and Rusty Tillman.  This was the big sign the XFL was in trouble
when Vince had announcers go after coaches.

DONNY L: Taker/Kane v H/Austin can't think of a worse main event for the
WWF then this.

SIMON GRIER: Gunn & Chyna v RTC - great, a feud involving 6 people whose
best worker is Val Venis. And it went on for SIX DAMN MONTHS. Kronik v the
Harrises was on the LOD-DOA level of boringness, and RTC v RTN was a dull
and pointless feud.

ESTRAGAND: WCW vs. Battledome? Battledome? Why'd they hook up with
Battledome? Answer- Because the hardcore cast of "Full House" was too

JOHN C.: The 'Taker vs. DDP feud was fun for about ten seconds. Seeing DDP
as the stalker was a nice surprise but from there it was downhill. His
heel promos were horrible and the fact that 'Taker no sold everything made
it painful to watch. The Lita vs. Chyna "spanking" stuff was equally bad.

BLAZEJ SZPAKOWICZ: WWF vs. Alliance, unfortunately. Primarily because it
should have been so good. There was actually worse feuds this year (such
as my runners up), but this one definitely deserves to win this category.
Mcmahon vs. McMahon vs. McMahon vs. McMahon vs ... etc. gets second. I
hear that the McMahon family's pet gerbil was next in line to get involved
in this feud until they decided to scupper it at Survivor Series...
UT/Kane vs. Austin/Triple H gets third, encompassing Austin vs. Taker and
Kane vs. H. An everlasting feud that no-one wanted, needed or cared about.

MATTY TONKIN: Booker T vs Rock was typical of the whole InVasion. WCW
never had a chance & neither did Booker T. Which is fine cause he sucks.
Again, Taker vs DDP could have been fine, except that DDP was squashed
every single time, so where was the entertainment in that ??

YNAE316: Edge v. Christian:  Could have been MUCH better, potentially
career making,but it lasted only ONE FREAKING MONTH?????????????????????
Terri Gold v. Mystery:  What a lame feud.  Lasted all of two shows
althoughan event like Mystery mugging and should stealing the belt should
have lasted a good month of two (assuming of course they lasted that long)
WCW v. Battledome:  Just lame.  How many people actually WATCH Battledome?
Is it still on???

SHANE SPEAR: When the blow-ff of your feud was getting pinned by your
opponent's WIFE, something is WRONG.  Very, very wrong.

THE CUBS FAN: If there was a "most underrated crappy angle", ECW vs
Network would win. In it's favor was that no one was watching ECW and the
McMahon family saga going on longer and making less sense.

MATT SPAULDING: Undertaker vs. Stalker Dallas Page: Why?  Kevin Nash and
Page vs. the Natural Born Heat Killers: Why?  I made RTC vs. anyone my
third choice because they were all so bad it was unfair to single one out.
