Monday Nitro – March 5, 2001: And Down The Stretch They Come

Monday Nitro #280 Date: March 5, 2001 Location: Bi-Lo Center, Greenville, South Carolina Commentators: Tony Schaivone, Scott Hudson After last week, it’s really hard to say what we should expect here as Nitro worked very well but Thunder was every bit the show you would have expected it to be.
