Trivia:
On 19 March 2001 Eric Bischoff announced that he would be appearing the following week with a major announcement. Originally Bischoff was going to announce that he and his company Fruscient Media were going to be purchasing WCW. However, the deal fell through when the Turner networks announced they no longer would be carrying wrestling. That left the door wide open for Vince McMahon to buy the company as well as the WCW video library.See more »

Classic Wrestling At It's Best..., 4 July 2001
Author: Patera from Dallas, TX

This show was the last version of classic professional wrestling at a national level before Sports Entertainment ended. During the Eric Bischoff regime, the show was great and consistent, until the management at Time Warner decided to screw things around (what a surprise!), and try to bring in some guys from the WWF. When WCW Monday Nitro died in 2001, so did a great era in professional wrestling.
