Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Worst year for the company (match-wise) ?
For me, I'd have to say it's either 98 or 99. I can't think of 5 **** matches from 1999 , and I can't think of that many great matches from 98 either. My MOTY for 98 is Taker-Shawn from the Rumble, while my 99 MOTY would just so happen to be.... I have no idea. It's so pitiful it's actually insane. I'd have to come out and say either Rock-Foley from the Rumble, or potentially Austin-Taker from Fully Loaded.
However the "ratings" (I feel dirty whenever I use that word) were the highest ever at this point. My question is, why? Are causal wrestling fans and a huge majority of so called "smart" fans just attracted to really dumb shit ? I watch wrestling for great storytelling in the ring most of the time, so how did everybody here feel when a whole bunch of dumb shit was going on in 99 while the matches were terrible ?
Again, ratings have no bearing on what is good and what is bad as a fan. The NWO got great ratings, and the NWO sucked balls.
