After the positive feedback for last year's special festive episode, during which Dean and Liam answered YOUR WCW-related questions, they decided to do it again this year... with a special guest joining their panel.

Former two-time guest of the show and editor of famed British wrestling publication Power Slam for its 20-year run from 1994 to 2014, Findlay Martin, offered his expertise and insight as our devoted listeners fired away about everything from how we'd book things differently to what happened behind the scenes to whether or not we'd prefer to make sweet love to either '93 WCW or '93 WWF.

Which World Championship Wrestling names would Dean, Liam and Fin invite over for Christmas dinner? TUNE INTO NITRO- erm, this episode of Because WCW, to find out!

It's the final Monday Nitro before the entire landscape of the professional wrestling industry would change forever, and it is also the night of perhaps Nitro's best match to date as the on-form Ric Flair battles popular babyface Eddie Guerrero.

Join Dean and Liam as they wonder why 1996 Flair isn't celebrated quite as much as other peak periods for The Nature Boy, while the usual storylines featuring Sting, Lex Luger, Randy Savage, The Four Horsemen and The Dungeon of Doom go around in one more circle before things freshen up with a certain arrival the following week.

One of the final slender episodes of Monday Nitro brings us four matches that could all be classified as 'heel vs heel', if you are counting the constantly-scowling Scott Steiner and a Lex Luger who camped outside the arena overnight as heels. After all, Luger seems to switch each week at this juncture.

Join Dean and Liam for 42 minutes of perfectly acceptable wrestling, plus the usual greatness from Ric Flair and Woman. Oh, and Elizabeth was also there with them. We think.
