I will not be buying the WCW Monday Nitro Volume 3 {3 dvd set} at all.

What I liked about Vol 2 was there was 1 repeat match from the entire set while all the others were carefully chosen whereas the matches here are not really the best and the repeated matches don’t mean too much. I might pick it up when it’s in the bargain bin.

If you’re referring to the Steiner’s match, that’s not the same one. That was Hall and Nash, that’s the one that’ll be on the Kliq set.

Thank you for posting some of the content. Can’t wait to see what the rest will be. Also, for some there may be repeat matches, but for someone like me who doesn’t own a lot of WWE DVDs, and loved Nitro, it will be great to see them again, or for the first time.
