Trivia

The final broadcast of Nitro aired on Monday, 26 March 2001, which included a simulcast with WWF Raw (1993), and featured appearances by Shane McMahon, as his father, WWF owner Vince McMahon had just purchased WCW. As a WWF storyline that would include a WCW "invasion" of the WWF, Shane commented that he, and not Vince, had signed the purchasing contract. See more »

User Reviews

it was great when the NWO was there
29 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

the NWO was by far my favorite angle in the history of wrestling. they were so funny,and so cool. now that the

original NWO isn't there,wcw is often a bore. the show

hardly ever starts off with a bang. it almost always starts out with some boring match with wrestlers you could

less about. however wcw has the best wrestlers in the world,it's just a shame that over half of them are wasted.

hulk hogan returning back to his red,and yellow gimmick

was a fun idea at first,but quickly got old. they need to

turn him back into a heel once again. he's funny as a heel. i still watch the show in hopes that it can be as

good as it was when the original NWO was there,but it never happens. but some shows are still good. only once in

a great while now does nitro have a better show than raw,and i really,truly mean once in a great while. when

the NWO was there this show got a 9 1/2 usually,now the

show gets a 5,but shows few and far between are as good as

a 6 or a 7.
