Yes, we all remember some really bad stuff from the three-hour “Nitro” era. Factor in the hours of “Thunder” each week (as well as “Raw” and “Smackdown” and roughly 30 pay-per-view events a year) and there was an ungodly amount of wrestling to watch on TV each week, most of it live, and very little of it produced by great wrestling minds. But why do we all have bad memories of those shows? Because we watched them anyway.
A great article backed up by substantive evidence.
