Lex Luger vs. Randy Savage - If Luger loses he has to leave WCW. This is a pretty good back and forth main event. It's a bit short but it's really good while it lasts up until a slightly disappointing finish.
Johnny B. Badd vs. Eddie Guerrero - This was a fast paced back and forth wrestling match that turned into more of a brawl for a short while when things got heated. It was a good showcase for both men that I wish could've gone longer.
Sting vs. Diamond Dallas Page - This was a short but decent match. DDP used whatever underhanded tactics he could to get the best of Sting, such as a poke to the eye or using the ropes for leverage while Sting kept fighting back. It was basic but entertaining.
Ric Flair vs. Randy Savage - Just like at the conclusion of Wrestlemania 4 Hulk Hogan has to try and steal some of Randy's spotlight before this world title match. The match itself was decent and competitive, the end came off a bit weird with interference in front of the referee and the bell repeatedly ringing before the referee called for it but apart from that it was good.
Sister Sherri vs. Madusa - This was fine while it lasted but pretty short. It wasn't anything special, apart from Madusa throwing Sherri onto her head after the match.
Sting vs. Rick Steiner - This was a almost a squash match but it didn't have a finish, it was all to do with Sting's baseball bat and if he's in the nWo. It wasn't very good.
**Next we have a segment that was meant to be a match between Hogan and Piper but the nWo come out and start beating down Roddy Piper for a while, nine on one, until the Giant didn't want to chokeslam Piper so he got kicked out of the nWo. It was pretty boring really.**
**Another segment here with a promo between DDP and Randy Savage with DDP chasing Savage through the crowd. It's better than the last segment but nothing special**
Lex Luger vs. Kevin Nash - This match was pretty slow but it wasn't long before it was ruined by the nWo.
The Giant & Diamond Dallas Page vs. Harlem Heat - This match never started, the nWo ran in and started attacking everyone before it could officially start, not good.
Chris Jericho vs. Juventud Guerrera - Jericho has his WWE music here, that matters to some people. This was the most exciting match on this DVD so far, Guerrera uses his signature high flying offence while Jericho tries to ground him. Jericho gets cocky which allows Juventud to stay in the match. Guerrera botches a couple of moves which made a couple of awkward moments but the match was still pretty good.
Scott Steiner vs. Randy Savage - This was a pretty decent back and forth match. Elizebeth played a part in the match but that didn't hurt the match. The nWo run in to end it did however making it the forth match on the first disc ruined by nWo run ins.
The Outsiders vs. Diamond Dallas Page & Lex Luger - This was a decent match for the tag team titles. The Outsiders used whatever underhanded tactics they could to isolate Page as he fought for the hot tag. It was alright but you'll never guess how this one ends...
Diamond Dallas Page vs. Stevie Richards - This was a short match that was almost a squash. It was decent and at least the nWo didn't run in.
**Next we have a segment where the nWo slowly dismantles the WCW Nitro set. It's really boring and goes on for too long.**
Eddie Guerrero & Chris Jericho vs. Chavo Guerrero & Dean Malenko - This was a really good fast paced match just like you'd expect with these men. They fought back and forth and both teams worked well together. Best of all we got a good, clean finish with no nWo involvement.
**There's a segment here where the Steiners tease joining the nWo and the Giant returns. It's nothing special.**
**Next there's another segment, this time from a "spring break" episode of Nitro featuring Kevin Nash jumping into a pool. It is what it is.**
Juventud Guerrera vs. Billy Kidman - This was a good back and forth match. It was fairly short but the action was entertaining. We didn't get a completely clean finish but it was better than the nWo run ins.
Hollywood Hogan vs. Randy Savage - The over the top announcer for this match felt really odd. The match itself was decent, with Savage gaining the upper hand forcing Hogan to use underhanded tactics like his usual eye rakes and eye pokes. The end again wasn't great but it wasn't the worst.
**Next the Giant calls out Kevin Nash and they have a quick brawl before Luger comes out and nWo Wolfpac try to recruit him. It's fine but nothing more.**
**Hogan and Bischoff talk for a while about Karl Malone until he and DDP show up ready to fight.**
Billy Kidman vs. Scott Hall - Scott Hall uses his power advantage to dominate here while Kidman would cme back with the occasional flurry of offence. It was a pretty good match, it was still fairly short but it didn't feel like it needed to be longer.
Diamond Dallas Page vs. Kanyon - This looked like it would be over early to start off with but after some brief involvement by Raven it became a more competitive match. They fought back and forth but unfortunately we got another cheap ending.
**Now we have Bret Hart calling out DDP for a title match but it's just an ambush by The Giant. Not too bad of a segment.**
Goldberg vs. Bam Bam Bigelow vs. Kevin Nash - This is alright while it lasts. After originally waiting and letting Bigelow do all the work, Nash worked with Bam Bam to beat down Goldberg. This ended eventually and everybody was fighting everybody. Unfortunately this has another poor finish. Especially since disqualifications don't really make sense in triple threat/triangle matches.
Bret Hart vs. Booker T - This was a pretty good back and forth match, it was unfortunately interrupted with a pointless segment about Disco inferno threatening a satellite guy. When we finally get back Hart is mostly in control and he targets the back of Booker T setting up for the sharpshooter while Booker T fights to stay in the match. Ignoring the interruption it's actually quite good, especially when compared to a lot of this DVD so far. We also get a clean finish that felt like a call-back to one of Hart's more famous encounters.
Goldberg vs. Ric Flair - This was becoming a pretty decent match with Fair using all the dirty tactics he could think of to try and take down the much more powerful Goldberg. Unfortunately there once again wasn't a proper finish which hurt it.
Hollywood Hogan vs. Diamond Dallas Page - This was an entertaining match. They ended up brawling all around the arena, messing up the announce position and knocking over the WCW letters on the stage before eventually making it back to the ring. They fought back and forth in the ring, with Ric Flair trying to get involved and a ref bump too but this actually helped this match and made it more fun to watch. I really liked this one.
Sting vs. Randy Savage - This wasn't very good, Savage's managers kept getting involved so it was just Savage with the upper hand on Sting that never builds to any kind of satisfying ending.
Hak vs. Rick Steiner - This was a hardcore match that soon went backstage. They threw each other into cars and bikes and used various weapons that were lying around. It was alright but had nothing on WWE's hardcore division. The ending was weird too, well it never really ended...
Sting & Hulk Hogan vs. Kevin Nash & Sid Vicious - This was a decent back and forth tag match. It wasn't anything too special but it wasn't boring and the end wasn't as bad as some.
Madusa vs. Mona - This was apparently a "New York Evening Gown match". It was awful, let's move on.
Sting vs. Bret Hart - This was a pretty good and competitive world title match. The two were fairly even throughout leading up to a screwy finish but the match up until this point had been good.
Scott Hall vs. Sid Vicious vs. Bret Hart vs. Goldberg - This was a ladder match for the world title, it was very short and chaotic(not in a positive way) with another lame finish. Very disappointing.
Jeff Jarrett vs. Bret Hart - Jarrett enters with the world championship here but Bret is the champion. They have a good, back and forth match and while the end isn't clean it's not too harmful to the match itself.
Sting & Vampiro vs. Lex Luger & Ric Flair - This was a texas tornado match. Flair and Vampiro fought back and forth in the ring while Sting and Luger fought around a hotel swimming pool and then down a beach. The match might as well have just been Sting vs. Luger as we saw so little of the other two their parts felt meaningless. It felt very different to what we've seen recently on the set so it made for a fun change of pace even if wrestling-wise it isn't much.
Booker T vs. Mike Awesome - This is for Booker T's world championship. They fought back and forth for a while before Awesome hit Booker with a chair and threw him into the guardrail before setting up a table that turned out to be a mistake. This was entertaining and had a proper finish.
Three Count vs. Jung Dragons vs. Mark Jindrak & Sean O'Haire - This was a fast paced match with Jindrak and O'Haire dominating with their power leading to the Dragons and Three Count putting their rivalry to the side to take them out. The match is very short but still decent.
Booker T & Diamond Dallas Page vs. Scott & Rick Steiner - This was a pretty good back and forth tag match between these two teams. It got a decent amount of time before Booker T and Scott ended up brawling away from the ring leaving the rest of the match to DDP and Rick Steiner.
This isn't a bad DVD but it was a disappointing one. I hadn't seen much of this footage before getting it so was disappointed by all the segments they chose for this one after watching them(especially the 20 minutes of slowly taking down the Nitro set). While there was some good wrestling to be found almost all of the matches featured poor or screwy finishes which grew old after a while. I also found that if the match we're watching isn't the main event the commentators won't be talking about anything that's going on in the match which got annoying too. If you're a big fan of WCW Nitro I could recommend this set and it does have a load of matches never released to DVD before, however I do feel that perhaps WWE used up all the really good matches and moments from Nitro in their first two sets leaving this one feeling somewhat empty.
