Ain't nuthing ta fuck wit

my buddy and i have started getting in the habit of watching just absolute dogshit wrestling on the network and giggling at the sheer ineptitude of it all. i need suggestions. what do i watch, and why. tell me what to watch, and i will post my suffering here, for you all to enjoy

the only requirement is it HAS to be on the network

things we've seen:
the bash at the beach/great american bash/uhhhhh whatever the third one was trilogy with the terrible sting/vampiro/kiss demon matches ending in the graveyard match
the nitro with no wrestling in the first hour (this was the worst thing we've watched so far)
the nitro with the last war games, in the triple cage
the war games at fall brawl where warrior came back and davey boy hosed up his back

help me wrestlehut, i hate myself

You can't go wrong (right?) with almost any WCW Uncensored but 2000 was pretty bad. Its the one with the Yappapi Strap Match.

I think it's SIN 2001 with Sid's gross injury, if you're in the mood for that.

The Wrestling Classic. IMO this is the first true "PPV" WWF ever did and it involves a 16 man tournament, a WWF title match, AND they give away a car all in a sub 2 hour 30 minute PPV! How do they accomplish this? The answer might surprise you - but it involves the finals ending in a countout and the winner receiving nothing!

If that's the one with the 15 unprotected chairshots to Foley's head as his wife and kids look on you're mistaking it for the greatest example of WWE hubris and bloodsport

I'm having a hard time thinking of a match I less want to see again than the HHH/HBK hour long circle jerk from Bad Blood '04.

Sabu/Sandman from N2R '97 is another horrible match to watch as well.

In Your House 4, known for being so bad that after it went off the air, Vince threw a fit. King of the Rings 94 and 95 are also pretty infamous.

While December to Dismember deserves to be in this thread, I still feel that it's a completely watchable show in its own right. It's just a really weird show filled with bad decisions. It's like a Sunday Night Heat episode stretched into two hours with a main event that's fine if you can get past the roster and tone-deaf choice for winner.

I actually ordered D2D on PPV because I was really excited about Hardyz vs MNM and Extreme Elimination Chamber. It was a perfectly watchable show, however it should've been $20 instead of normal price. Like you said it's a fine show, just a weird one.

Summerslam 95 was pretty bad but it had a very good ladder rematch between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon.

I remember the early In Your House ppvs being dire too.

IYHs were sometimes good because they had less awful undercard poo poo before the main event. Good Friends Better Enemies (Shawn/Diesel) and Mind Games (Shawn/Mankind) are the obvious ones.
