Good Wrestling DVD
25 February 2009 | by CandidlyCandidSee all my reviews

This is a highly enjoyable wrestling documentary, of the days when WWE Monday Night Raw run by Vince McMahon would clash against WCW Nitro who was led by Eric Bischoff. The two would battle over of course of about five years to try and win the ratings battle each Monday night. This competitive ratings program brought the best out of both WCW and WWE to make and create some of the finest moments in wrestling history. You get to hear from WWE legends and icons, Jim Ross, Shawn Michaels, Cris Jericho and many more. A fairly good documentary, of strategy, performance and determination to win ratings and bound a new winner. Every wrestling fan should give it a watch.
