Good insight on 80's wrestlers but..........
8 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good insight on 80's wrestling stars but... I found it to be a boring at times. The individual wrestler highlights and backgrounds are pretty informative and entertaining but I felt they could have gone a little more in depth with each wrestler. They show clips of only a few of the stars matches in clips and the time line for each wrestler jumps from 85,86,87 to 90 96 and then to the present. This collection leaves you wanting more from each wrestler's spotlight and not just seeing gaps in the wrestlers career. You have your classic wrestlers on this DVD including the likes of Ric Flair, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat,Randy Savage, Sgt. Slaughter and of course Hulk Hogan but at the end of the 3rd disc you ask yourself ...where is "your favorite wrester here" where is such and such. No Von Erich's. No Jake the Snake. No Ultimate Warrior. No Andre the Giant. No Jimmy Hart excerpts. No Ted Debiase. And they call this "The Best" Wrestlers of the 80's. I'm sure there are some wrestler specific DVD's out now but take a look at the choice of wrestlers and decide on your own. If you are buying this DVD for one specific wrestler or just a handful of wrestlers on the lineup don't waste your time. I'm sure there are better wrestling documentaries with some of your favorite 80's wrestlers.
