Storyline

Now it can be told. In 1995, two wrestling companies squared off on Monday night television to compete head to head in an unprecedented confrontation. On one side, Vince McMahon, the promoter who created WWE and made the industry what it is today. On the other, WCW, owned by media giant Ted Turner, and run by an ambitious man named Eric Bischoff. This is the whole story, by those who created it, lived it, and survived it. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Gene Okerlund: I don't particularly think that giving away a competitor's results is ethical. But the hell with ethics.
Eric Bischoff: Ethically did I have a problem with doing it? Of course not, it was business. I didn't give a damn, I had no intention of ever going to the WWE, so it didn't matter to me.

A Must For ALL Wrestling Fans
9 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I feel this is without a doubt the most comprehensive DVD covering a time when you were proud to be a wrestling fan. It was a time when you were actually spoiled for choice on which superstar was the best as both WWE and WCW had great superstars. Having grown up watching both shows I knew just about everything that was covered in this DVD but I never expected to see every significant moment in that time period covered in such great detail and in the order they happened in. As they say all good things must come to an end and I certainly miss flicking channels in between to see what was happening on the other show, therefore I'm grateful to get my hands on this DVD. If you're like me and miss the good old days of WWF Attitude, DX, NWO, Rocky Sucks, Goldberg's streak, Austin vs McMahon and the Montreal Screwjob to name a few, get your copy of this DVD NOW!

For all those who criticize this by saying it wasn't comprehensive enough, just be grateful a documentary about this rivalry was made at all. First of all, I'm sure it must have touched on old wounds for everyone involved (don't forget this was an actual ratings war) and secondly if they were to include EVERY significant moment that happened it would have probably ended up like the Kill Bill movies (which was divided into two movies because the final film was too long). With these two factors in mind I think WWE did a reasonable job capturing the rivalry in general. Don't forget the mark of a great film is it leaves you wanting more.
