This review is from: WWE: The Best Of WCW Monday Night Nitro - Vol.2 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
WWE - The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro [DVD] obviously sold in large enough quantities to make Volume 2 a worthwhile release for the WWE in terms of revenue. It's certainly a warranted collection bearing in mind that the WWE released a four disc DVD set dedicated to 1993 and 1994 Monday Night Raw "seasons".

Much like Volume 1 this probably isn't the "best" of Nitro but it does offer up a series of matches, promos and incidents that sum up just what an exciting programme Nitro could be in it's heyday as well as offering us a reminder of just what drove the company out of business.

Disc 1 of the blu-ray set takes us from a September 1995 match between Sting and Ric Flair, up to May 1998 and the "Birth of Wolfpac". Highlights from a match point of view including an interesting Dean Malenko/Jushin Liger match, a Rey Mysterio vs. Juventud Guerrera Cruiserweight Title match and Goldberg's first title win in WCW in a match for the US Title against Raven. It's not an all-time classic by any means, but it's worth watching. It's little surprise that the Cruiserweights offer up the best action but whilst the quality of the in-ring product isn't quite the same there are also interesting battles between The Steiner Brothers and The Road Warriors, a mega starred six man pitting Hollywood Hogan, Kevin Nash & Scott Hall against Sting, "Macho Man" Randy Savage & The Giant and a match pitting La Parka against compilation host Diamond Dallas Page which keep things ticking along. Indeed the fast paced nature of the show shines through and there is a definite feeling that if you're not enjoying what's on the screen at any given time there will be something along shortly that you will be entertained by.

Disc 2 of the blu-ray starts at June 1998 and ends with the final episode of Nitro from March 2001. Best matches include Rey Mysterio vs. Eddie Guerrero and Shane Helms vs. Shannon Moore (as short as the latter match is) whilst star power is catered for with the likes of "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Hollywood Hulk Hogan battling over the WCW title and a rare, if slightly bemusing, Roddy Piper vs. Bret Hart match. We end the main feature with Booker T vs. Scott Steiner from the final Nitro as the World and US titles are unified.

Two matches that are extra's on the DVD are included on the Blu-Ray (though as far as I can see they are not listed on the cover anywhere) including a strange one where William Regal is stuck in a tag match with three Cruiserweights. The Blu-ray exclusive extras are about an hour and a half long and include some of the better in-ring performances on the discs, with Ric Flair Vs. Brian Pillman from 1995 being a tight little match and a good World Championship Match pitting Goldberg against Sting. A TV Championship Match between Scott Steiner and Chris Jericho from 1999 is better than you'd expect too.

This is not a DVD/Blu-Ray that is jam packed with five star classics. In fact I'd doubt there's even a four star match on here. And yet it is an undeniably entertaining set that, as I mentioned from the start, sums up a lot of what made Nitro a very watchable programme at its peak.

Rabid WCW fans will love this, but those whose interest in WCW was only in passing or those who wish to look back at a truly memorable period of wrestling history will find a lot to enjoy here. It's a fast paced look at what made Nitro a phenomenon and is held together well by DDP. All in all, a WCW treat.

Great set a lot better than volume 1 though DDP does get a bit annoying after a while . The matches are good and so are the clips overall a good buy for fans.

This review is from: WWE: The Best Of WCW Monday Night Nitro - Vol.2 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I enjoyed this set it is not as good as the first one but surprisingly they put the best stuff on the first one.
One of the things I love about watching WCW is the unpredictable feel of the show. The feeling that anything can happen and that still comes across over 10 years later.
