Storyline

Now it can be told. In 1995, two wrestling companies squared off on Monday night television to compete head to head in an unprecedented confrontation. On one side, Vince McMahon, the promoter who created WWE and made the industry what it is today. On the other, WCW, owned by media giant Ted Turner, and run by an ambitious man named Eric Bischoff. This is the whole story, by those who created it, lived it, and survived it. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Gene Okerlund: I don't particularly think that giving away a competitor's results is ethical. But the hell with ethics.
Eric Bischoff: Ethically did I have a problem with doing it? Of course not, it was business. I didn't give a damn, I had no intention of ever going to the WWE, so it didn't matter to me.

Raw Vs Nitro
16 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you grew up a wrestling fan in the 90s then you know the shows on Monday nights made it Wrestling night.

You had the World Wrestling Federation Monday Night Raw that begin in 1993 on the USA Network then in 1995 World Championship Wrestling begin to air WCW Nitro on TNT leading to the greatest time to be a fan of Pro Wrestling.

The DVD itself to give the Monday Night War justice would have been better if it was a 3 disc set with the matches and promos that drew Nitro and Raw to high ratings.

The DVD has interviews with those who lived through the Monday Night Wars.

They went and interview Mick Foley, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Vince McMahon, Eric Bischoff, Big Show, Chris Jericho and many others that lived and survived the Monday Night War it gives us an look at what it was like during the time of the biggest era of wrestling when Monday Nights became the day for Wrestling Fans.

And it's really cool to see early footage of the Original Raw and Nitro episodes and watching the footage of WWF and WCW made you feel like you were back in the day.

It just so cool to relive what is what made Wrestling a great time and to be a fan to boot.

The Monday Night War really does a good job for giving us some history into how the war begin plus hearing many interesting stories about both companies

This is a DVD that would make any fan of Wrestling proud.

I give The Monday Night War: WWE Raw vs WCW Nitro an 10 out of 10
