    if i was gonna make a top 5 worst ppv ever from the big 3 ( WWE,WCW,ECW) it would go something like this

    1) December to Disemeber (WWE)- When a PPV gets the crowd to chant TNA! its unforgivable.

    2) King of the Ring 95 (WWE)- Quite possibly the most poorly booked ppv ever.

    3) Hardcore Heaven 97 (ECW)- A show so bad ECW I'm pretty sure disavowed it

    4) Road Wild 98 (WCW) - Goldberg going over every possible contender in one match. Brian
    Adams vs Steve McMichael.....ugh

    5) Wresltlepooloza 98- A show I watched recently that was so bad I honestly don't know why its not mentioned in these type of discussions more often.

    yeah a lot of those early IYH's outside of a match here and there were pretty rough.

    I don't think it's the worst ppv ever(my mind is blanking of examples) but I've never been a big fan of wm11.

    By Wrestlemania standards Wrestlemania 9 was pretty bad but even by PPV standards it was puke worthy.

    It was randomly in Iowa, The NWO arrived on garbage trucks, they held a Miss NWO contest with ugly women, Bischoff and DiBiase did pro-NWO commentary the entire time with no straight man to play off, Every match had Nick Patrick as the crooked NWO ref, the main event ended when Giant had the win over Hogan and Patrick just stopped counting and the NWO attacked him. One of the most pointless PPVS of all time.

    There was a record-setting blizzard going on at the time, too, I believe. This led to the stands being bare as Heyman's head.

    Maybe the ppvs as a whole aren't that bad(been awhile since I last watched them) but the wcw ww3 ppvs weren't good. I remember as a kid being so excited for them and thinking it's so cool but really it's just a collosal clusterfuck. Plus wcw was notoriously bad for how they did split screen camera work anyway, so that just made it worse.

    1995 Halloween Havoc had the Monster Truck Sumo match followed by Hogan throwing the Giant off Cobo Hall only for the Giant to reappear and double team bearhug the Hulkster with a 7 foot mummy in a homoerotic fashion.

    Those ECW PPV's were bad but there have been WAAAAAAAAY worse. Hell I'd take either of those shows over most modern day WWE PPV garbage.

    In Your House Beware of Dog in May of 96. Lol. I don't know if that counts for worst ppv though. That's more a case of crazy shit happening

    Slamboree 93 is full of boring matches with garbage booking given the Lethal Lottery gimmick.

    While not a PPV, the November 1990 Clash is 95% pure trash full of bad gimmicks and terrible wrestlers, mildly saved by a Ric Flair main event
