View Full Version : Other Sports WWE/WCW Documentary: The Monday Night War

10-15-2011, 07:45 PM
Kinda started talking about wrestling's peak days in the late 90's, in the Scott Hall thread, and I saw this documentary on the rise and fall of that wrestling era that took over America culturally, and also dominated NFL in TV ratings on Monday nights for about 3-4 years. I know I wasn't the only one who watched WCW Nitro, then flipped over to WWF Raw, and only turning it to MNF only during the wrestling promo's commercials. Those were the days man, now wrestling is total crap.

Anways, if you liked wrestling in that era, this is a really cool documentary to watch. If you have some time, it's about 1hr 30mins long.

Enjoy! :thumb:

Wow I had no clue about the Monday Night War. I was only like 9 or 10 around that time. I was wayyy into WWF. Undertaker was my dude. The Rock won me over. But Undertaker will always be my fave. I do remember my friends diggin WCW more. One of my buddies used to always have the PPV's shown at his house. I used to HATE that I had to sit through WCW PPV's lol. Strange how this whole thing flew right over my head. In my little world it was all about WWF.

Oh and this just reminded me of the videogames! That first WWF Raw game.. cant remember the exact name. Shit was epic. But I have to admit that the WCW games ended up stealin the limelight with better gameplay. The reversals you could do in the wcw games were just too good. I think one was called WCW Revenge. Was like tops. Later I think THQ ended up making a WWF game which was the last wrestling game I owned. I wish I could break out the old system and game and round up my buddies :/
