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

The best TV show in the history of our sport.
27 August 2002 | by Hack-ManSee all my reviews

If it hadn't been for Nitro, we'd still be watching midcarders winning squash matches on WWF/WWE television (taped four weeks in advance).

In the last couple of years it was on TV, the critics were quick to pan Nitro, but if you look at tapes of that era (arguably its worst) and compare it to the fare dished out be the McMahon clan, you'll be wishing it was the other of the "Big Two" that folded.
