Yeah, mostly at the time in the excitement of the moment i overestimated the quality. This is doubly so when i was a kid. So like VI was shit despite i was psyched, because i couldn't look past Warrior-Hogan, and evidently neither could the company. It's routinely bombed overall with the other matches just a placeholder for the main event.
12 was similarly lousy overall, hence the 1hr match, which itself was extremely well done, but like anything so drawn out in the smart phone era, hard to watch now
Probably 10 is the one that's grown on me over the years, as Hogan's absence was hard to take and i hadn't yet decided he held back everyone who was far more talented. Then like you say, i've learned about Hogan's gag worthy influences like at 9 (which i still think overall was decent, because it was only the very end of the show), it's just as well he wasn't throwing his weight around yet again at 10 with another lousy one on one match with Yoko
20 was flat out terrible and my opinion of that has never changed. From the suit and tie crowd and the cops on the 'playing field', to the Lesnar-Goldberg reeled in match, to the Rock being noticeably out of shape even in a tag match
