Editorial Reviews

WCW was a long-standing rival of WWE and attempted to take the battle to Monday nights with Monday Nitro, a show that competed directly with Monday Night Raw for 6 years, creating a wealth of famous in-ring moments for sports entertainment fans. Now, for the first time ever, the greatest moments and matches in the history of Monday Nitro are collected in The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro, a 3-disc set that captures the best of WCW from the show that almost ended WWE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this the Very Best... or Worst? June 7, 2011
By TMH
Format:DVD
I just got my copy of WWE's "The Very Best of WCW Nitro" 3-disc DVD set and wanted to chime in with a review
of the actual product. First, there is some confusion out there because some of the reviewers here on Amazon
are listing this set as having these special features: Rey Mysterio vs Mr. J.L. and a segment called DDP Monday Nitro
Highlights. These two extras are only found on the FYE exclusive version, not the version Amazon, or any other retailer,
happens to be selling. The FYE version contains those extras along with a segment of DDP talking about being afraid
of heights the night Sting saved him from an nWo attack and they escaped via Sting's harness to the top of an arena.
These 3 extras are only found on the FYE exclusive version, which is limited! So with that out of the way, here's my review...

Being a longtime wrestling fan (I started watching in the 70s) I can tell you without hesitation that the mid to late 90s were
the best time ever to be a fan, thanks to the Monday Night Wars. As Eric Bischoff put it in a WWE Legend's Roundtable show
a few years ago, "every Monday Night was like the Super Bowl". It was an amazing time to be a fan because when WCW went
head-to-head with WWF Raw on Monday Night both promotions started pulling out all the stops to capture ratings and win
over viewers. You never knew from week-to-week who was going to jump from one promotion to the next, there was more
emphasis on actual wrestling, promos blurred the lines of fantasy and reality as stars called out wrestlers and promoters from various
promotions and you would get to see world class main events and dream matches on virtually a weekly basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more good than bad here August 22, 2011
Format:DVD
It started in September of 1995 and quickly took over the WWE as the king of monday nights in the wrestling world. From bringing in former WWE talent, to the influx of crusierweight wrestlers from all over the world to the New World Order, the highs just seemed to keep coming. Of course eventually there were cracks in the armor and from mid 1999 to the closing in March of 2001 what was once a suprise filled 3 hour show filled with great action and great angles was reduced to being stale, tired and boring.

This is a 3-disc set of great moments and matches from WCW's flaghsip show Monday Nitro, hosted by former 3 time WCW World Champion Diamond Dallas Page he doesn't just read from a script here as whenever he appears he gives his honest opnions on what was going on in WCW and the world of wrestling at various times during the sets.

Personally I loved the video package they played to begin the disc, brought back some great and not so great memories.

Disc 1-The Rise and Takeover

-9/4/95, Jushin "Thunder" Liger vs. "Flyin" Brian Pillman: From the Mall of America its the very first match ever on Nitro and despite a few botched moves its a very good contest, though their '92 contest was better. Brian rolls up Liger and pins him. 7/10.

-9/4/95, WCW Championship Match, Hulk Hogan (Champion) vs. Big Bubba: The first main event in Nitro's history and in typical Hogan fashion he sells for Bubba and hits his usual spots including the big boot and leg drop for the win. Average match, 5/10. The face/off between Lex Luger and Hogan afterwards was fun to see, except Luger sounded stupid as always when he cut a promo.

-1/8/96, Ric Flair & Arn Anderson vs. Hulk Hogan & Randy Savage: What a star studded main event tag match this is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Proof that wrestling really has lost something. June 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Discs One and Two of this set reminded me exactly why WCW was the number one brand in professional wrestling in 1997-98; Disc Three reminded me why the company crashed and burned like a led balloon only 3 years later. The Very Best of Monday Nitro could have been more aptly titled "The Essential Monday Nitro" or "The Rise and Fall of Monday Nitro," in line with some previous WWE releases regarding their late 90's competition, as it is really more of a chronology than a "best of" set. The set plays in chronological order, detailing most of the major mile-markers in the history of the program, and is pretty fairly balanced between matches and the non-wrestling segments that gave the 90's Monday shows their episodic feel. Watching this set really brought back the old feelings of excitement about wrestling. I actually felt more engaged by some of these 15 year-old segments than I do about the current WWE product (and of course the abysmal TNA show).

As far as the particulars go, I'll say this:

PROS -
* Pretty much all the biggest moments are here.
* Some of the really memorable moments are actually propped up by some of the less memorable ones, which helped to give the segments a little context that is lost on YouTube.
* The chronological ordering helps the set to feel like a highlight-reel version of the entire Nitro run.
* The set does a good job of resisting the urge to cater to the internet-only crowd and doesn't get buried in 23 different Psychosis vs. Cyclope matches. Those matches were great live, but much like MMA fights, I feel like once they're done, they're done. They really don't have much value 15 years later without any storyline or context.

CONS -
* There is no documentary.
