Welcome to the first #ModernDayNitro review column, by yours truly, Rich Latta. With the release of the WCW Nitro’s of 1995 and 1996 on the WWE Network, I will watch them at random and bring you all into a virtual deloreon with this column. If you have any specific shows you find interesting, let me know where to find it on WWE Network, below or on Twitter @DangerRich32. Our first show is labeled “Nitro 103.” The main attractions were a Ric Flair vs Randy Savage WCW Championship match, and Arn Anderson taking on Hulk Hogan
However, it is only the 25th episode of Nitro, as they are still on their 1 Hour format, which is cut to a slim 46 minutes minus the commercials.
Live from Salibury, Maryland we opened with Eric Bischoff, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, and Steve “MONGO” McMichael. Mongo is wearing a western style jacket that could double as a teenage girls purse. For some strange reason he has a fully dressed dog in his arm named Pepe, just thought I should mention.
ARN ANDERSON VS HULK HOGAN
How did Arn Anderson get away with not shaving his chest for all those years? Anderson is accompanied by Woman who would later, Never mind.
American Made Hulk Hogan came out to a rather large ovation, proving not everyone was sick of the prayers and vitamins. Eric Bischoff then throws a grenade at WWE by saying, “Do you hear that sound? The incessant whining coming from the north east part of the building? Sounds like, never mind.” Bischoff wouldn’t hesitate to shoot, as we would soon find out.
