It Came From YouTube: WCW Nitro Party footage

6 Submitted by on Sun, 19 January 2014, 02:00

In the late 1990’s WCW wanted fans to host and send in clips of their “Nitro Parties” as part of a contest where the winner would win… oh, who cares? Let’s just say it was tickets to Nitro and a chance to meet a wrestler and move on.

You might remember that the contest was sponsored by Mug Root Beer. Sometimes Tony Schivone would get their slogan “The Foam Goes Straight To Your Brain!” wrong, much to my amusement.

They’d show these endlessly stupid contest entries week after week.

The “parties” would usually consist of drunk college kids in their dorm room or at home watching Nitro, cheering on the wrestlers like maniacs, and dressing up as the wrestlers and cutting insane, rambling “promos” about how great WCW, WCW Nitro, and WCW wrestlers were.

In other words, it made wrestling fans look like complete and total idiots.

Thanks a load, WCW!

If you hosted and filmed or even just attended a Nitro Party, would you be brave enough to admit it in the Comments section below?

    Are you sure that wasn’t footage of a sausage fest.

    Every Monday night was a Nitro party for me! Of course, it was almost always a party of one, and I was always laughed at for being a WCW fan. But still, a party nonetheless.

    Speaking of announcers advertising products, my favorite was fruity delicious JR with good ol skittles! Wait I did that wrong. Anyway, someone on youtube made a montage of all the orgasms JR had over those fruity little candies. Definitely worth a couple laughs

    Everybody hated the WWF at this time at my high school. WCW was all anybody would talk about. We would make life a living hell for the small handful of losers that would wear their lame The Rock or Steve Austin t shirts. Still to this day I remember this one fat kid in a The Rock T shirt crying like a little baby.

    The people in the videos are idiots. My friends and I loved WCW back then but we would have never made a sausage fest video. Our WCW Nitro parties always had at least 2 or 3 girls. Shockingly lots of hot girls in high school were fans of WCW. You could actually get laid in high school by a hot chick if you were a fan of WCW. Those were the days… Sex, Drugs & WCW Nitro!
