(and probably some others that I don't know about - CRZ)

EDC: Worst Organization?  WCW easily wins this honor, for killing off
their CW division. The WiFF almost won, except they got RID of Russo and

OCTAVIAN:  I didn't vote for Worst Organization because I'm only familiar
with the big three in North American and AJPW.  None of them suck so much
I'd consider them the worst and I'm not about to be petty and vote an
organization as being the worst just because I don't like some of their
current wrestlers or angles.

DON BECKER:  FMW has to shove firecrackers up Eiji Ezaki's ass to get
people to care about them - that's pretty sad.  WCW just about hit rock
bottom this year with some of the worst TV since the whole Monday Night
war started.  And Heroes Of Wrestling... well, the only thing that kept
them from rating higher was the fact that they only ran one show.

MAX CHITTISTER: I haven't watched anything consistently that was bad
enough to deserve a vote.

JBELL55146: Trying to find the point where WCW actually hit rock bottom is
really hard to tell. I think the night where "Sable" was in the stands,
Master P was having fun busting country records, and Kevin Nash and Randy
Savage were pouring sewage, while Eric Bischoff kept on saying 'It's On!'
during the show showed just how low one company can get.

BLOB: WWF completely detoriated and had the absolute minimum amount of
wrestling an organization could possibly have. The emphasis on angles and
storylines diminished any value a broadcast could have, the PPV's were
extremely weak, and the bonehead angles created made this the worst year
for WWF non-ratings wise. Heroes of Wrestling was an extremely poor PPV
and wasn't worth half the price of admission. The Anus Explosion Death
Match gets #3.

DUNCAN O'SULLIVAN: I only watch the big three hence only three
organisations between the best / worst category. Anyway ECW has gotten
better since last year. Both WCW and WWF have succeeded in a 17 year
wrestling fan in switching them off. WCW gets the nod as worst
organisation as I stopped watching them first.

LEO CHIU: That's right, BATTLE DOME is more interesting than WCW.

TREVOR KING: The quality of wrestling on Stampede makes the WWF look like
All Japan. For all the talk the Hart boys make about there not being
enough wrestling out there, they certainly aren't helping by putting out
this garbage.

ELLIOT SPARKS: Worst organisation is WCW, hands down. The promotion has
suffered in every way possible this year, creatively, financially, and in
terms of injuries/talent jumping ship. Maybe more importantly, aside from
a handful of excellent matches, everything they've put on TV has been
unadulterated fuckwittery. Their choice of saviour was equally
disenchanting, as Vince Russo will only be a short-term solution - if he
solves anything at all, that is. Also, props to Heroes of Wrestling for
establishing their cack factor within seconds of their first show, and
credit to FMW for wrecking a solid product with anus explosions and porn
star rapes. What a glorious year for pro wrestling.

DONALD SEMACK:  Heroes of Wrestling was a good idea in concept ONLY after
that, well you know the rest.

DAVID HANNA:  How can WCW not win this award?  There treatment of Ric
Flair alone is reason enough to bury this organization.

SEAN FLYNN: WCW would get all my votes if I could do it.  I don't know if
they count, but HoW deserves it's vote.  And hey, it has a commish, so it
ought to be allowed.

MARK SMITH:  WCW still takes the top spot.  I really wish they would get

B. SZPAKOWICZ: If Heroes of Wrestling ever try to put on another PPV, can
someone please eviscerate whoever comes up with the damn idea forthwith?

SEZ OF SEED: Yes, ECW's overrated.  And deteriorating.  And relys on cheap
heat.  And the fans are obnoxious.  Deal with it.

COLIN MACKINNON: Heroes of Wrestling was a bad idea just waiting to
happen.  FMW still has good matches, but they've gotten even more
tasteless. Examples: Urinating on Arai in public, having porn stars in
matches, sticking dynamite up people's asses...  The list goes on.  WCW is
going downhill fast, thanks to Russo and Ferrera.
