Storyline

It started in the Midwest, and grew in stature until it was rivaling WWE and WCW for national supremacy, its champion on par with their promotions. The AWA launched hundreds of careers, including Ric Flair, the Road Warriors, Sgt. Slaughter, Jessie Ventura, and so many more. It's the promotion where the Immortal Hulk Hogan first rose to prominence and the Showstoppa Shawn Michaels took center stage. THE SPECTACULAR LEGACY OF THE AWA profiles the amazing rise of the promotion to where it was considered one of the "Big 3" through its end.

the loud music is annoying
12 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

Background music is one thing, as it stays in the background. But the music is so loud on this DVD makes it hard to hear what the people are saying! If I could watch it without this terrible music, it would've been great.
