Well it could have been better....
28 September 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

WCW the company that was about to make WWF(E) its bitch, this company changed history if it wasn't for WCW Monday nitro, well the attitude era wouldn't have existed, so was the DVD fair and good is it groundbreaking?? well not really the documentary had its ups and downs, but i'd actually recommend this for the new fans who think that cena is the best damn thing in the world, these people need to know how important WCW was and how it changed the wrestling world. OK so what are the positives?? i loved how the documentary began to discuss how the whole thing began since NWO and the different changes that took place in the company and how they dominated the wrestling world, until the company hit rock bottom and was sold to ted turner and if u ask me the main problem with WCW until its end in 2001 was the lack of strong management, lets move on,I really loved how they praised Eric Bischoff when he came and took control, i think he was the first person ''in a while'' who actually knew what to do and take the company and the wrestling world to the next level with the introduction of the nWo and how they began the whole thing as if WWf were about to invade the show, the fact that he said lets make nitro go live, lets make hogan a heel, all of these ideas changed the wrestling world i really liked that they pointed all of these things out, so for me i really liked all pf these stuff BUT there are some really big let downs, first of all they didn't talk about really important figures in the company like Sting who is a living legend, they didn't talk about nWo splitting into two groups plus when they talked about the fall of WCW well it wasn't explained in a good way, if you want how did WCW fall in details well you wont find this here. As for Russo, this guy wasn't that stupid he made the Attitude era he saved WWF back in the days -_- what happened in WCW that no one actually filtered his idea to be frank this was mentioned in the DVD that there was no filter for his ideas, yeah yeah his ideas were stupid, so the bottom line is the DVD is good but it could have been better,,,, final rating 7/10....
