CHRIS BIRD: God do I hate the Rock. We're talking OODLES of hate. Hogan
isn't far behind, and I would die happy if I never had to see Vince
McMahon's mug on my face ever again.

EDC: Something about the Rock just rubs me the wrong way. Maybe if he quit
being a mic hog, and did something about his ringskills... I don't care if
Chyna is the first female IC champ, I say SHOW ME THE WORK RATE! If she
could do a tope con hilo, I might mark out for her. But that would require
her to get Triple H's steroid needles out her ass.

K. CANZANELLA: I can't stand the Rock. I see him cut funny interviews
about Kane and Pig Slow and wrestle decent matches against HHH earlier in
his career, and then I see him talk about wanting to rectally invade every
known wrestler on earth and sleepwalk through his matches now and think
what a waste it is. Taz just friggin' sucks. Yeah, you show 'em pudgy,
maybe if they provide a step ladder in the Octagon you'll choke out Royce
Gracie or kick Maurice Smith's ass. Undertaker can ruin anything he is
involved in. That's how much he annoys me.

DOUG EHRMANTRAUT: Goldberg is a poisonous canker rotting the already
necrotic flesh of WCW.  Cut him out, throw him on the floor, and step on
him.  Just be sure you don't get any on you.

SVEN MASCARENHAS: Hey, Nash, you dumbass. Not only did you run a perfectly
good promotion into the ground, but you dragged your lazy pal Gonnad into
the spotlight with you.

AARON: I don't much go for the puff characters, and Buff and Mr. Ass in
particular. And every time I see Stevie Ray, I know I'm gonna have to see
that huge, ugly ghetto scar of his.

SHAWN MULLIN: I hate Kevin Nash.  I hate how Kevin Nash acts like he's too
cool for wrestling.  I hate how he ruins every angle he's in by acting
like it's a big joke, and it doesn't matter.  I hate how he lumbers his
lazy ass around the ring and never does anything intense or interesting.  
HE SUCKS.  Chyna's overpush pisses me off, and Konnan is just plain
annoying, but at least they have the respect to actually try.

MAX CHITTISTER: It kills me to list Savage (one of my old faves) at #2,
but he was just so bad this year. And I hated Sable even before she got
fired. Bodaceous ta-tas can only take you so far, toots.

JBELL55146: Nobody annoys me more then Konnan and Buff.  Trying to pick
one I hate more took me longer to think about then any other award!

PAUL SHOCK:  Stevie Ray is third, because he is an awful wrestler and he's
holding back the career of his brother.  But at least he's an okay
interview.  Hogan is second, because he's an awful wrestler and is at
least five years past retirement.  But at least he can, on occasion, give
a good interview.  Rick Steiner is my least favourite wrestler because he,
to be blunt, sucks at everything he does.  No workrate, no charisma, no
heat= the worst wrestler going.

BLOB: IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII Hate Hogan. Ditto for Nash. Does anyone even
close to like Rick Steiner?

GEORGE CARTER: Why does Steve Blackman still have a job ??? He should have
been subjected to Jakked/Metal after calling Terry Taylor 'Ken Shamrock'
for like a minute. Since I shouldn't count the Funeral/Bossman/Big Show
incident (because of the timeframe), the Bossman makes # 2 on my list.
Finally the Dudleys s-s-s-s-s-sucks !!!

JOHN C.:I don't like Nash in the ring but he's decent on the mic so that's
why Bagwell is my choice for this category.

RICHARD BEAUBIEN: Hulk Hogan refuses to step down, and seems to be taking
WCW down with him. He won't job cleanly to the man, Ric Flair; he won't
let Goldberg take the spotlight needed to get the company back on top. And
you can be damn sure he's the one who built the ceiling keeping talented
young guy's like Benoit down....All that and he seems primed to come back
for one more run on top to feed his egp. For that, I simply say fuck you
Hulk Hogan!!!

JOE GENTILE:  Konnan: He's Rowdy Rowdy and Bowdy Bowdy... AND HE SUCKS!!!!

SEAN FLYNN: These two take the top because GF and Val make me ashamed to
watch wrestling with my wife.  I don't mind a bit of T&A, but the misogyny
in these gimmicks makes me feel dirty and shamed of my love of wrestling.  
Hulk is 3 on general principles.

LUKE JOHNSTON: Rick Steiner gets my vote for least favorite wrestler.
Sid's refusal to take chops from Benoit at Fall Brawl, his egotistical and
stubborn attitude backstage, his mind numbingly horrendous interviews, and
his overall crappy workrate cement his place as #2. Buff Bagwell gets my
#3 vote for refusing to job to Berlyn at Fall Brawl... and not getting
punished for it. Plus he's annoying and arrogant as hell, so there.

B. SZPAKOWICZ: And the Hulk Hogan Memorial Least Favorite Wrestler Award
goes to... yep, you guessed it. I still hate Bret Hart, so he gets second.
And David Flair gets third, on account of being David Flair.

THERION: Damned difficult to pick the only top three most annoying
wrestlers who make me change the channel.

EDDIE KIM: Ernest Miller is the one guy who will get me really pissed off
like a mark when I see him.  There are worse wrestlers than Prince Albert
but at least they don't also make me physically ill with their back hairs.

JEREMY SORIA: Jeff Jarrett, you suck and nobody cares about you anymore.
Is that so hard for you to understand?

JUSTIN JONES: Oh, and I REALLY can't wait for Shane Douglas to get healthy
again....I've long been anticipating Shane Douglas vs. Reid Flair in a "No
Needle In My Ass Match"

MICHAEL STAKELY:  Least Favorite So many to hate, so few votes... 3rd.
Somebody get him off of my television screen now damnit! WCW, the
cruiserweight belt has suffered enough thanks to you, please mercy kill it
now if you're not going to put it around the waist of someone with actual
talent.  And I don't mean Madusa.

HEATM:  The happiest days in my life this year were the Mondays when I
could tune into Nitro and not worry about seeing Lex Luger.  Likewise,
Vince Russo should be given a medal for taking Hulk Hogan off TV.  My
tolerance level for the Big Bossman bottomed out after his feud with Al

MDB:  Least favorites: Vince and the Rock.  Everything that is wrong with
wrestling today.  Well, that's not fair actually.  Much worse are the fans
who make the "entertainment" in pro wrestling these days so successful.  
But you gotta like those who complan about lack of wrestling on wrestling
shows and then mark out for the People's catchphrase and the latest
chapter of the McMahon soap opera.
