Why was the Big Boss Man so hated?

I was watching tons of pre 2000 PPVs and noticed how much heat he always drew. Does anyone remember why? I only started watching wrestling in late 2001.

He was awesome. He fed Al Snow soupd made from his own dog, Pepper. He wrote a poem about how glad he was that the Big Show was a bastard and that his daddy was dead. I loved the Boss Man

He was pretty vicious. For example he kidnapped Al Snow's dog, killed it and then fed it to Al Snow.

Re: Why was the Big Boss Man so hated?

I will always have a special connection to Big Boss Man because thanks to him I started watching wrestling.
I didn't even know what wrestling is but one day I saw a police officer on TV beating someone in a ring.
For a 8y old boy like myself there was no bigger hero and thanks to him I started watching wrestling regularly. If someone bland was in the ring instead of this police officer I would probably never watch wrestling again.
R.I.P. Ray Traylor

As for his late nineties run, he was the perfect heel in the Attitude Era. Totally opposite of his heroic early nineties run. It's a shame that his feud against Stone Cold was not longer.
He is along with Rick Rude and Brian Pillman somebody who I really miss and WWE needs more evil, vicious characters like the Boss Man

Either he played the heel role very well or people didn't think he deserved the big role he got in the Austin/McMahon feud after coming from a horrible run in WCW.

He was just a good heel. I remember absolutely hating him when I watched it as a kid.

He was just a great heel. Always gained heat.

Who can forget

"With the deepest regrets and tears that are soaked
Im sorry to hear your dad finally croaked
He lived a full life on his own terms
Soon he'll be burried and eaten by worms
But if I had a son as stupid as you
I'd wish for cancer so I would die too
So be brave and get your life back on track
Cause the old bastards dead and he aint ever comming back"
