Trivia

For a while, this show was shown Monday nights live opposite bitter competition from taped events of WWF Raw (1993). "Nitro" took advantage of this with its announcement of the hiring of former wrestler Rick Rude, whose scripted role was like a manager. Rude debuted live on "Nitro" while, during that exact moment, he appeared during a taped "Raw" telecast. See more »

Quotes

Eric Bischoff: [Bischoff's infamous challenge to Vince McMahon during their real-life rivalry] There's no need for spins or dirt-sheets. We can settle this like true men, Vince. Just you, and me. You can do it... come on, Vince. Step into the ring. Do what so many other people would love to do. Get your hands around my skinny little neck. You can do it... if you've got the guts. Do you, Vince? Have you got the guts to REALLY show up? I do... do you? Just think of it. Just think how great you'll feel if you're ...

Nitro By Name, Nitro By Nature
26 June 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

WCW Monday Nitro made it's debut in September 1995 and ran until March 2001-that's almost six years of top notch action. Along with the WWF's Monday Night Raw, Nitro was a brilliant programme.

Along the way we had the big guns such as Hulk Hogan, Sting and Ric Flair but the great thing about Nitro was the way it highlighted some of the undercard wrestlers such as Billy Kidman and Rey Mysterio Jr.

Nitro was a very unpredictable programme for a long while. In one edition Lex Luger made a surprise return to WCW after wrestling in the WWF 24 hours earlier. You never knew what would happen on Nitro-anybody could show up, friendships could be broken up and throughout the series there were some wild brawls.

I strongly recommend tracking down old WCW Nitro tapes particularly from the 1996-1998 era.
