There was supposed to be a Shane Douglas v Rick Steiner match on this show, which Shane Douglas did a promo about on the last episode of Thunder, but it was scrapped.
Scott Hudson on commentary said that they were in Sydney, They were actually in Brisbane.
When Rick Rude appeared on RAW, he had a full beard, but when he appeared on Nitro, he had only a mustache.
This one's like the Lex Luger goof from episode 1:The reigning WWF Women's World Champion Deborah Miceli re-debuted in WCW, after a lengthy stint in the WWF as Alundra Blayze, under the name Madusa (her old ring name) with the WWF Women's World Title Belt and proceeds to throw it in a trash can. Miceli had been working in the WWF without a contract when she jumped to WCW.
I guess this is considered as a goof: something like a week (or less) earlier Lex Luger had been working in the WWF without a contract; WCW signed him to a sizable contract and used him a "surprise" (actually not many "people" knew he would be there until the night before/morning of) for the first Nitro. This started a trend of WCW "stealing" wrestlers from the WWF.
