EDC: Rednecks v. No Limit was a terrible gimmick, fued, match, what have
you. And Whats funnier is that the Rednecks won! Imagine if the NAACP got
wind of that!

K. CANZANELLA: Steve Austin v. Undertaker was terrible cartoon crap. Rock
v. Mr. Ass gets second cuz I hate both of these guys. Corporation v.
Ministry of Darkness was another one of those "exciting, compelling,
coherent" WWF angles I keep hearing about.

JOEL BOUTIERE: On Sting vs. Hulk Hogan as worst feud:  the two played the
roles completely opposite of the way the fans wanted them to play, so this
feud just didn't work at all.

SVEN MASCARENHAS: Savage vs. Nash? Hummers and poop. Berlyn vs. Bagwell
was just insulting to most people's intelligence, and Venis and Blackman's
main motivation for fighting was a misplaced vibrator. Ugh.

AARON: The Bossman/Snow fued lasted almost all year, and, hey, who DID win
it anyways? And the matches sucked in addition. Any fued where a decrepid
old woman loses her clothing gets thumbs down, and the Buff/Berlyn fued
only served to show that Buff is a little bitch and Jim Duggan is a man's

DON BECKER: Ivory vs. Monday Night Geritol was neither interesting nor
enjoyable, no matter how hard Ivory tried, and resulted in Mae Young being
stripped to her skivvies.  Someone needs to die for that one.  The First
Family/Revolution killed whatever heat the Revolution could've gotten, and
leaving the Revolution may have saved Chris Benoit's career.  And not even
T&A fans could get behind Sable/Tori.

SHAWN MULLIN: The women's feud sucked in more ways than any of us can
list, but D-Lo vs. PMS bugged me almost as much.  The fake pregnancy crap,
the bondage stuff with Mark Henry.. oh god.. how bad was that!?  DIE VINCE

MAX CHITTISTER: Find one more person for Moolah and Mae to feud with, and
they can have a clean sweep in this category.

PAUL SHOCK:  Oh, that wily Bischoff!  He outsmarted Flair again!  Plus
beat him in the ring.  That's why he's the best wrestling promoter ever,
by gosh!

BLOB: Steve Austin v. Undertaker was the sickest, nastiest feud of the
year. There were a total of 5 wrestling moves in the matches, and a total
of 3956 punches in the feud. Hogan vs Nash sucked big time, but I wasn't
really expecting much. Rap vs Country was a pretty bad feud, especially
since guys like Master P and Swoll were brought into the company.

GEORGE CARTER:  Pepper # 1 ! Also, why should we care about two old women
fighting ??

JOHN C.:The No Limit Soldiers v. West Texas Rednecks was easily the worst.
In fact did the No Limit Soldiers do anything that was good?

JON RICHARDSON: The opposite of a good feud is one that produces horrible
promos and even worse matches.  Therefore, the easy winner this year is
Randy Savage vs. Kevin Nash.  The fact that this feud also spurned the
"Who Drove the Hummer?" angle only serves to drag this feud down even
further.  A close second on the list is Goldberg vs. Sid Vicious.  
Between Sid's incoherant ramblings, Goldberg's lack of mike skills, a
series of increasingly stupid vignettes involving rented cars, and a
blow-off match that didn't blow anything off, it was truly godawful.  The
Rappers vs. The Twangers gets my last vote because it shows just how out
of touch WCW was with it's fans. The Soldiers weren't over as faces, the
Rednecks weren't over as heels, yet WCW continued pushing them that way
for no reason I can find.

LEO CHIU: Shamrock/Blackman feud has Shamrock's line of the year. In the
Iron Circle, he yells, "You like weapons? AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!"

JOE GAGNE: Let's see, Snow/Bossman resulted in one of the worst angles,
and one of the worst matches, so it's the easy "winner."
Ivory/Moolah-Young?  Is there any need to elaborate?  The fact that Sid
was built up with the ridiculous "Millennium Man" gimmick at the expense
of others, and then his feud with Goldberg doesn't reach any satisfactory
conclusion earns them third place.

JAMES GOWDEY: Big Show vs. Big Bossman: I'd rather have seen a feud of
them fighting to keep the "Big" in their names...

SEAN FLYNN: Old men fighting, it's either free dentures day at the senior
center, or the main events in WCW.  Snow/BBM led to Kennel in a cell,
which is unforgivable.

LUKE JOHNSTON: The West Texas Rednecks vs No Limit Soldiers was by fay the
worst fued of the year, and quite possibly the decade. I've never felt
more embarrased and ashamed of being a wrestling fan than I was whenever
Master P and his goons invaded my TV with their ridiculous "Hooty-hoo!"
shouts. What complete and utter crap.

B. SZPAKOWICZ: Ivory vs. Moolah and Mae Young... Can someone get those two
old hags off the screen before my eyes start to bleed? Al Snow vs. Bossman
dragged on for ever and ever and ever and did anyone give a damn? Nope.
Flair vs. Bischoff gets third for the horrible, horrible, horrible booking
at Starrcade.

SUGAR RAY: The feud for leadership of the black and white nWo was just too
ridiculous for words, and who the hell cared, huh ? As for Gorgeous George
vs Charles Robinson, Mr.Robinson should be ashamed that he actually
accepted such a crappy storyline.

JEREMY SORIA: Even though it was just the thing to humiliate Jarrett out
of the WWF, it was just plain silly.  The whole Ric Flair/Bischoff thing
in 1998 was ugly enough, but it got uglier the next year with the
de-evolution of Ric Flair, trying to make him look crazy.  As much as I
liked Brad Armstrong and Chase Tatum in the No Limit Soldiers, they had no
talent whatsoever.

SELENA KYTE:  Bambi and Peggy Lee Leather have battled each other for over
a decade.  I would've thought by now that they moved on to the other women
on the independent circuit.  I doubt many fans know what started the feud
in the first place, and even if they did, I'm not sure it warrants
continuing this feud for all these many years.

MICHAEL STAKELY: Worst feud 1st. I think this one really needs no
explanantion. 2nd. This one was just disturbing and stupid. Plus I used to
have a pet dog named Pepper and yes, she was a Chihuahua. Sniff,
insensitive bastards. 3rd. Ummm... isn't the heel supposed to you know win
at least once?  Not overly offensive in concept, just VERY poorly

MATT SPAULDING: Buff was right...  no buildup for this thing at all.

MDB: Corporation v. Ministry gets the Worst feud nod over Savage/Nash
because Corporation/Ministry was more absurd, larger in scope, drawn out
longer, and led to dozens of bad matches.  Nash v. Savage gave us the
happy result of effectively ending both their careers.
