This looks like a great release in terms of content. It's nice to see them recognizing the great matches and moments Nitro gave us.

I'm really glad this is on a DVD again (it has to be here, I'm not being sarcastic) -- but what are they going to do here? Blur out Chris Benoit?

Since it's on the Horsemen dvd in full, I'm guessing they'll just clip it down to Flair's promo, maybe with a quick crowd shot cut when he hugs Benoit.

This is a pretty great listing, but having gone back through some of CRZ's old recaps upon seeing it, there sure seem to be a couple weird choices on there... that Jung Dragons/Three Count ladder match for example is 3 minutes long. But I guess pickings must have gotten slim towards the end.

I was watching the Monday Night Wars Legends Roundtable last night and had totally forgotten who was in the ring when Scott Hall debuted on Nitro. Mike Enos vs Steve Doll.

Also, the Radicals are now Saturn, Eddy and Dean.

It's really sad; but out of all the Radicalz, Dean seems like he's the only one who got to retire as an active wrestler, and managed to do so with his sanity intact. He's still a road agent, right?

Wow. This is actually a really impressive lineup and has most of the stuff I'd be looking for. I might actually buy this one.

They kept in a lot of the great Sting/nWo stuff and most of the big matches that aired on the show. Hopefully they're not edited or anything.

EDIT: Can't believe it's been 10 years...

I dunno; when they did the compilation disc of all the Elimination Chamber matches (up to that point), they included the one that Chris Benoit was in-- in its entirety. Although they edited out commentary in which the announcers said good things about him. (Which, I suppose, is a reasonable compromise.) Chris Benoit was my favorite wrestler when he passed away and he's still one of my favorites, but... anyway, let's not hijack the thread with that.

I wouldn't be overly surprised if the Four Horsemen reunion was shown in its entirety, with the same kind of editing-of-announcers they did in the Elimination Chamber DVD. But then I also wouldn't be shocked if they took extreme measures to erase him from existence.

I'm looking forward to seeing that Pillman vs. Liger match, from the Mall of America! Also, the Luger/Hogan match in which Luger won the World Heavyweight Title was my first mark-out moment as a wrestling fan. (I only started watching in February of that year).

I think the Greensboro deal would just air as-is unless the directive has changed again.  "You know King, Chris Benoit ................... a lateral press." So I don't know if Arn will talk about how Benoit came to him to reunite the Horsemen or however that went, but they probably won't have to change anything else.

Yeah, once Russo and Ferrara came in the first time, TV wrestling was basically dead for the rest of WCW. There were almost no matches longer than four minutes or that weren't just a couple moves before a run-in. The new generation of cruiserweights who all went to the WWF starting getting a chance to put on good matches at the end in 2001 but I think they were all on PPV and some forfeit Thunders.

That they nabbed that Booker/Storm match, which was notable for being nearly 6 whole minutes long and one of the only good Nitro matches that entire year, shows someone with some knowledge of that era put this together. But they also picked a match with Russo wrestling so now he gets DVD royalties, haha. The other vaguely memorable (by the standards of 2000 Nitro) good match I remember was when Flair won the title from Jarrett. Or maybe they should've used Flair vs. Russo since it explains everything inconceivably stupid about that timeframe in one match better than a "BILLY KIDMAN, current wwe trainer" talking head possibly could.

That WarGames match is the one where Russo wins the belt, right? Yeah, that elongs on there. Maybe the 49ers match with Russo inventing TNA's Feast Or Fired/Knockouts Lockbox match, too.

I believe the WarGames was when Nash was defending the title along with teammates, but the entire episode was built around Russo demanding that he win the title in the match, but in a shocking swerve they were friends and Nash was allowed to walk out of the cage with the title and win.

The one were Russo won was, I think, a cage match that was one-on-one against Booker T, where Goldberg ended up spearing Russo out of the cage right before Booker left the door. (I think there was even sort of a cliffhanger at the end of Nitro on who the champ was.)

Since Arn is still an agent and seems to be in good graces of WWE, I'm guessing that he wasn't as bothered by this skit as many of us thought he was - or I'm overthinking it.

He's probably (hopefully) developed a sense of humor about it if he ever really had a problem with it.

I think it's one of the funniest skits in all of wrestling.

Or perhaps having a steady income while most of the people in that skit are working indies for a couple hundred bucks a week takes the edge off a bit. :)

I'm watching the parody on youtube and I don't know who those wrestlers even are. Who's the guy with the towel supposed to be mocking, Curt Henning?

Edit - well, fake Arn = Nash. That's obvious.

Curt Hennig: Buff Bagwell
Ric Flair: Syxx
Steve "Mongo" McMichael: Konnan
Arn Anderson: Kevin Nash

The nWo was obviously afraid to get someone to spoof Chris Benoit, for fear of getting the shit beaten out of them.

Also, I'm disappointed (but not especially surprised) that they didn't include the original segment on the DVD as well. I mean, the one in which Arn Anderson retired and gave his spot in the Horsemen to Curt Hennig. It was a truly moving moment.
