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 »

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.
