Trivia

In 1997, wrestler Ric Flair got involved in a legitimate legal dispute with WCW President Eric Bischoff regarding his contract with the company. This stemmed from Flair missing a "Nitro" show with the understanding Bischoff gave him the night off so he could see his son compete in an amateur wrestling match. Bischoff denied this and took action against Flair, who, in turn, tried to get out of his contract. After the lengthy dispute was settled, the situation was written into a story and the two feuded on TV and pay-per-view events. See more »

I am sick of some of the stupid kids on here that say 'nWo was a RIPOFF of The DX'... If you were to make a valid point, make sure you look at the facts.

nWo was created in 1996... while DX was created in 1998 (I think), the matter of the fact is... nWo was atleast a year before the DX was made.

And for people that saw RAW is better, look at the crap the WWE Shovels at us now. I rather watch Nitro.

I bet all the people who said 'Watch RAW, Its the greatest Wrestling Show' dont even watch the show anymore. And dont blame it on the WCW part of the roster, cause its the WWE Writers, including Vince Mcmahon, who writes this stuff.

So, give WCW a break... It was run by AOL Time Warner, a huge conglomorate, while WWE was run by one man.

The WCW was great, as so was WWE. WCW was just the first one to have bad programming, but it wasn't as bad as the WWE crap today.
