The most successful tag team ever, Hawk and Animal,The Road Warriors aka Legion Of Doom aka L.O.D.This is DVD essential viewing for any wrestling fan. L.O.D were the tag team that inspired many imitators including Powers Of Pain and most notably Demolition(a team that consisted of their training partners) This DVD tells the story of how Hawk and Animal grew up together,trained together,worked together and made the big time together. My biggest gripe with this DVD is that it doesn't show enough of their feud with their biggest imitators DEMOLITION, which was one of my all time favorite tag teams ever, (right behind L.O.D and the Hart Foundation)It would've been great to see the match between all three members of Demolition and LOD with the Ultimate Warrior or the feud against Earthquake and Tugboat RIP HAWK!!!

I was always a fan of Animal and Hawk, The Legion of Doom, The Road
Warriors, whatever you call them. This DVD was pretty neat. It showed
their early beginnings, their rise, and their fall and separation. One
of my gripes, as with the other comment, was how they didn't show any
feuds. OK, they have one match against Demolition, and a pretty
mediocre one at that, but they never bother to show any more of the
feud after that one match. They mention and show the ending of their
triple tag team match with the Ultimate Warrior against all three
members of Demolition but they don't include it. Nor do they include
their Survivor Series match that included them on Team Ultimate
Warriors. Another example is LOD 2000 when Animal and Hawk win a match
against multiple tag teams. This was Animal and Hawk's reunion match
after Hawk left for Japan. How could they leave this match out? Another
gripe about this DVD is they show mostly victories with only one or two
matches ending in DQ. This ended up making the DVD pretty predictable.
Just because they lost a match doesn't mean that it was not worth
watching. I wish they would have included their last RAW together. I
also didn't like how they devoted a lot of time to showing their promos
and sometimes not even following up. They have a promo against the
Natural Disasters, Earthquake and Typhoon, for example, but they don't
show the match because Animal and Hawk lose.
All that aside, this was still a great DVD to buy.
