Archrival WCW launched [[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro their own Monday night show]], triggering the Wrestling/MondayNightWars. Later, the WCW pulled the trigger on the [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder nWo]], which would become one of the hottest angles of the time and would secure a ratings domination for WCW for the new two years.
