WCW Nitro: Aging Well?

Youtube has complete episodes of some WCW Nitros. I watched a couple from late 1999-2000. At the time, the show was a complete trainwreck. But watching them now, they're really not that bad. I'm actually accepting a dozen things going on at the same time, whether they make sense or not, and if they make a complete 180 within 30 minutes. Am I feeling nostalgic or are these shows still really that bad?

What the f--- has 8 years of John Cena on top DONE to our children's minds?
