***SYNOPSIS***
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.

***VIDEO QUALITY***

The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro arrives on DVD with a 480i transfer utilized in the aspect ratio of 1.78:1. The majority of the presentation consists of the original television aspect ratio of Nitro with a plated steel filler image on the sides of the image to fill out the screen on HDTVs without sacrificing the original footage and stretching it. Colors were were strong with some light bleeding in the mid 90's footage concerning reds, otherwise the outlandish colors of the "Macho Man" Randy Savage's outfits(R.I.P.) to Stings face paint really stood out. Keep in mind that Nitro was never filmed nor presented in HD so while the image is consistently clean and has decent detail this isn't a tour de force perfomer. The newly filmed segments with DDP on a set exhibited solid black levels and a pleasing color palette. Overall the presentation continues WWE's solid run of work. 8/10

***AUDIO QUALITY***

Audio is provided by a Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track. This is a crisp and clean track with solid dialogue reproduction. Music cues and crowd effects exhibited decent separation in the front speakers. The match commentary was consistently clear and it was great to hear Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and his quick wit. 7.5/10
