WCW Monday Nitro is one of the best shows around
16 May 1999 | by AtragonSee all my reviews

WCW Monday Nitro is certainly one of the best shows you'll find. Bill Goldberg is Nitro's leading man and puts on an excellent performance. WCW Monday Nitro also boasts an awesome supporting cast featuring Kevin Nash as himself, James Fullington as the ever-maniacal Hardcore Hak, and Chris Irvine in the role he was born to play as "Lion Heart" Chris Jericho. WCW Monday Nitro provides three hours of great entertainment and has something for everyone.
