The nWo backstage assault - 29th July 1996

It was Sting, Lex Luger, and Randy Savage battled Ric Flair, Chris Benoit, and Steve McMichael going on in the ring and Jimmy Hart came out and started screaming about an attack in the back and that everyone should go and see. The faces were rightfully suspicious and the heels looked equally perplexed. Eventually they went to the back to see the results of the nWo backstage assault - Anderson down, Riggs down, Bagwell down and Mysterio down after being thrown into a trailer by Nash. Savage jumps on the roof of the escaping limo until he gets thrown off while people around ask what happened and how many there were. My favourite Nitro ever and just a surreal sports entertainment moment - the bit with Jimmy Hart trying to get the heels and faces to go to the back felt so real and you could see the desperation and panic in his face. Amazingly well done.
