EDC: The only real problem I had with Nitro is that they still had Hogan
and co. on there. RAW and Thunder were terrible this year. Nitro stunk to
high Heaven.

DON BECKER: WWF LiveWire is just pointless, and has been since they got
rid of the call-in format.  WCW Worldwide is like Saturday Night without
the charm.  And Thunder was Nitro Lite for most of '99.

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

BLOB: WWF almost clean sweeps this category but good old WCW Pro throws
them a bone.

JOHN C.:If you've sat through an hour of WCW Worldwide I seriously hope
you took a trip to the doctor to make sure you are thinking properly.

ELLIOT SPARKS: Worst TV show? Nitro was bad, Thunder was worse. But since
there's more Nitro than Thunder, the balance of abysmality has been
returned to normal. Raw gets third for epitomising the evil (or at the
very least, predictable) nature of today's WWF.

DAVID HANNA:  WCW has been very hard to watch this year.  Be it on TV or
PPV.  Its hard to believe that Nitro used to paste Raw in the ratings.  
That everyone wore NWO shirts and they were hip and cool.  1998 was the
transition year. 1999 was when Nitro hit the bottom.  I put Nitro first
because for being a "flagship" show that hardly ever delivered anything
memorable in the past 52 weeks.  Can anyone sit through 3 hours of Nitro?

SEAN FLYNN:  I hate WCW shows this year.  The big shows had nothing to go
for them, and the little shows had some nice technical skills, but nothing
tying it together.

COLIN MACKINNON: Worldwide, Superstars and LiveWire are all pointless
recap shows with little unique footage/matches.  Worldwide is the only
exception, but decent matches are rare there.

JEREMY SORIA: Worldwide turned into a clip show, and there is one less
place for some up-and-coming wrestlers to show their talents. What a

SELENA KYTE:  There's senior bowling, senior golf, and for all intensive
purposes, senior boxing.  Thanks to Heroes Of Wrestling, now there's an
official seniot pro wrestling circuit.  From what I've read of the
pay-per-view, it's probably not a good idea to have too many of these
things.  Aren't reunion banquets and autograph shows enough?
