I liked most of them before the Fed started running one every month.
I guess they did that to compete with WCW.
In general, Mania was always a good time. RR, Summer Slam, and even Survivor Series were usually pretty good. Early KOTR’s weren’t bad, either.
It seemed that, as the competition grew, the weekly televised shows greatly improved to the point that we were seeing many PPV-quality matches on RAW and SD, and PPV’s merely served as a culmination of feuds.
WM, Summerslam & Royal Rumble are the top ones. The rest are half assed unless they have a Hell in the Cell match on it with two top stars.
