These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Complete Monsters: The various acts they committed in their first month in WWF in 2002, ranging from various toolbox item sneak attacks to breaking a cement block over "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's knee to running an ambulance over that we saw the Rock get put in with a giant nWo semi truck three times in succession, certainly put them up in this territory if they weren't already there with many of their actions in WCW.
Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The nWo Souled Out PPVs, especially the first one. The commentary team was an nWo provided team who buried all the faces, all the matches were refereed by the nWo's corrupt referee Nick Patrick, and generally it was so obviously a predetermined victory for the nWo that the fans didn't react much one way or the other.
Which is kind of Hilarious in Hindsight since most smarks would now emphatically agree with Heenan's assessment.
Mis-blamed: The face nWo Wolfpac was actually very popular. The bookers hadn't even planned to make the Wolfpac face, it was the massive positive reactions they got that turned them face. In the retelling, they're usually made out to be stale and a ratings drain, but they were popular enough that during the Nash/Goldberg match, the commentators had to no-sell very audible "Goldberg sucks" chants from Wolfpac fans.
Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Several wrestlers whose popularity had been waning got this treatment by either feuding with or joining the nWo, not the least of which was Hogan himself.
