Retro Republish: Because WCW Watchalong The First Nitro

Get set for Nitro Week by rewatching the very first episode along with Because WCW’s alternate commentary!

It’s WCW Monday Nitro week from Monday August 31st to Sunday September 6th here on Hooked On Wrestling to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the seminal show’s debut on TNT back in the day.

And to whet your appetite for the big seven-day digital festival of grappling nostalgia, here’s Dean Ayass and Liam Happe kicking off their ‘Nitro Watchalong’ project as part of their World Championship Wrestling podcast, Because WCW.

First published on October 1st 2018, this episode features Dean and Liam discussing the September 4th 1995 launch of Nitro while they watch the very first show live as they go along, via the WWE Network.

The duo continue to record Watchalong episodes in chronological order and have now reached April 1996. You can find the rest of their Watchalongs – and all their other episodes, including exclusive interviews with Jeff Jarrett, David Penzer and Lady Blossom – at the Because WCW website or from any good podcast providers.
