WWE has some pretty exciting DVD/Blu ray releases planned for 2013 and the first of them is The Best of WCW Monday Nitro, Volume 2. The collection is scheduled for a February 12th release in North America.
WWEDVDNews has an exclusive look at everything from cover art to the chapter listing and the set looks like it won’t disappoint. The 3-disc DVD features 28 matches and the Blu ray adds another eight.
Some notable matches I’m looking forward to watching again in this set include:
- Sting v. Ric Flair for the WCW United States Championship (9/4/95)
- Rey Mysterio v. Juventud Guerrera for the WCW Cruiserweight Championship (9/16/96)
- Ric Flair v. Scott Hall (6/2/97)
- Rey Mysterio v. Kevin Nash (6/30/97)
- La Parka v. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (7/7/97)
- Steiner Brothers v. Public Enemy in a Tag Team Title Street Fight (11/3/97)
- Booker T v. “Macho Man” Randy Savage (12/15/97)
- DDP v. Chris Jericho for the WCW United States Championship (1/5/98)
- Raven v. Goldberg in a “Raven’s Rules” Match for the WCW US Title (4/20/98)
- Booker T v. Scott Steiner for the WCW US and World Titles on the final Nitro (3/26/01)
- Hulk Hogan v. Lex Luger for the WCW World Title (9/11/95) [Blu ray exclusive]
- Ric Flair v. Brian Pillman (9/18/95) [Blu ray exclusive]
- DDP v. “Macho Man” Randy Savage in a Steel Cage Match (6/15/98) [Blu ray exclusive]
The collection, of course, also features many moments from Nitro that weren’t included in the first Best of, such as Madusa throwing the WWE Women’s Championship in the trash and the birth of the Wolfpac.
