Default 1995: The year in prowrestling that sucked tremendously

I just watched fall brawl 1995 on dvd. god what an awful event this was.

I started this dvd and one of the second matches featured "The Renegade" (against DDP). For some of you who don't know him.. he is the wcw version of The Ultimate Warrior. He wasn't even ripped like the warrior. Terrible.

The ending of the ppv was just like i expected. Of course Hogan who was there for about 2 years I think. Hulkamania running wild with all the "goodguys" aka Hogan's bitches in the WarGames match until he got attacked from behind by The Giant. Same old shit.

Now this sounds awful but on the other hand imagine WWF having big daddy cool diesel aka kevin nash as WWf champion for already year by then.

This had to be one of the worst years in pro wresting. What are your thoughts?

In before 2012 is worse. Ive watched wrestling for majority of my life and nothing beats the crap in 1995 or 2009 (Smackdown was okay though).

Haha, the classic Hogan vs. Dungeon of Doom storyline. I never have and never will understand the appeal of Kevin Sullivan on screen. Anything he was associated with in WCW was just fucking stupid.

1995 sucked, it had a few good moments but overall sucked ass. Diesel's boring reign, Mabel's big push, the midcard being so bad, you name it. 1994 was way better IMO and even 1996 was better, though mostly due to HBK and Stone Cold.

Todd Pettengill alone made the whole wrestling business looking terrible in 1995 and he didn't even wrestled one match

Worst King of the Ring winner.
Worst Summerslam main event.
Worst big man WWF Champion ever.

I agree, 1995 had to be the most boring year ever.

Hulkamania flopped in WCW
Diesel had probably the most boring title reign ever
WM 12 was horrendous
Nothing in WCW made much sense

However, it did produce Nitro and in retrospect, ECW was getting it's foot in the door with talent and angles that all would play a big part in the business over the next 2 years (Austin, Cactus Jack, adult oriented storylines). I think at that point, both WCW & WWF were throwing shit on the wall to see what would stick. It's like both companies knew what they wanted to do but didn't know how to make it happen. For WCW, it was a blessing for Hall & Nash to sign. For WWF, it was a blessing that Russo was a breath of fresh air and a different breed of writer.

But yeah, 1995 had to be the worse (especially for Vince) and I can't see how anyone can say that 2012 was worse than 1995. What would you rather have: Cena main eventing with quality opponents or Diesel main eventing with Mabel & Sid?

Lol, I actually thought Fall Brawl 1995 was WCW's best ppv that year. Flyin' Brian vs Johnny B. Badd, Harlem Heat vs Buck and Slater, and Ric Flair vs Arn Anderson were all very solid, and the War Games match was the best one they had put on since 1992.

But yeah, as a whole, 1995 sucked a fat one, for both WWE and WCW. WWE hadn't got rid of their cartoony, "trying to be hip" image, and WCW was putting on some goofy matches/feuds all year.

Sorry, but unlike 1995, 2012 set out on a mission to fuck up, destroy and then do the worst possible job of reinventing some of the most simple fucking wrestling concepts that a 2 year old could figure them out. Things like "don't beat the heel twice clean on television in the weeks preceding the PPV and expect people to pay $55 to buy the PPV just to end up seeing the heel win." Yeah, 1995 didn't fuck up that badly.

1995 was just a bad year. 2012 made people seriously question why they were still wrestling fans, the WWE has made wrestling THAT uncool, uninteresting and so completely devalued and meaningless.
