The Rise And Fall Of WCW Epic Fail
16 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Rise And Fall Of WCW is a three disc DVD set from World Wrestling Entertainment.

Ever since the WWE Brought out WCW they have to all the WCW Footage, WCW Names, Images and more.

Since the success of what is what many say is the best Wrestling DVD ever made The Rise And Fall Of ECW the WWE Thought that it would be right to make the Rise And Fall Of WCW.

However this DVD was a epic fail. First off Almost every wrestling fan knows how WCW Fall. The Business has stars that use Ego, Greed, and Selfish stars.

WCW was a very strong company but when the young talent like The Giant now called Big Show in WWE, Chris Jericho and others left because they were being hold back never get the spot light or the world title matches. WCW begin to go downhill.

WCW never use too much of their brain to understand how to make a company work they had former World Wrestling Federation Stars running the show and just never allow the younger stars to get their break in World Championship Wrestling.

This DVD started off good with a small fact about how The NWA National Wrestling Alliance was created and then when Ted Turner brought the company he turn it into WCW World Championship Wrestling.

During the 1980s WCW became almost an overnight hit with fans of Wrestling. Then the famous Monday Night War begin back in 1995 with the creation of WCW Monday Nitro to go head to head with The World Wrestling Federation and Monday Night Raw This war would go on until 2001 when WCW were brought out.

Also This DVD only shows clips from former WCW Stars that were not in the WWE when this DVD was being made. They Show interviews from past WWE Shows. Stars like Scott Hall, Diamond Dallas Page, Booker T and Others didn't interview for this DVD.

However they got Goldberg, Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, Arn Anderson, Ric Flair, Mean Gene and others to do this DVD.

The DVD falls because of the lack of talents that could have share their stories about WCW and the fact that all Wrestling Fans know the reasons WCW fail.

If you really want to learn about WCW watch The Monday Night War and others dvds stay away from this one.

I give The Rise And Fall of WCW a 4 out of 10
