Trivia

The final broadcast of Nitro aired on Monday, 26 March 2001, which included a simulcast with WWE 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

This show had its moments.
12 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

The past six years that this program has been on the air, I would have to say has been both on the plus and negative sides. There has been some very memorable moments on this program such as The N.W.O.'s hostile takeovers, the breaking of young stars like Chris Jericho and Billy Kidman, Arn Anderson's retirement, and the recent emergence of the cruiserweight tag-team division. The down moments have been watching Hulk Hogan trying to make his comeback (over and over again) and some very bad gimmicks like "The Dog" and The "No Limit Soldiers". I am a very big fan of pro wrestling and don't like to just glorify the W.W.F. for being more popular. I like to judge the product itself and in my book W.C.W. Monday Nitro has definitely aired some great moments.
