On this day in 2001: Last WCW Nitro aired
On March 26, 2001, WCW aired its last episode from Panama City, Florida.
Three days before on March 23rd, WWF purchased the declining WCW for $4.2 million which included the name/logo and their video library.
Don’t you recall how surreal it felt seeing Vince McMahon on a Nitro episode? Then, quickly turning to Raw to see the same video feed? Oh, what a time to be alive!
Vince and Shane were already in the middle of a feud which they would have a street fight match at Wrestlemania X-Seven in the Astrodome.
Prior to the match starting, Shane McMahon gave a shout-out to all the WCW wrestlers who were in attendance at Wrestlemania. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any of WCW’s top performers since they were still under contract with Time Warner.
What were some of your favorite WCW moments? Mine definitely was the New World Order and Sting feud.
