Rise and Fall of WCW DVD – Details Fully Revealed
by Travis Leamons on July 2, 2009

Yesterday, Iain Burnside posted a speculative listing from Netflix. I had seen the information posted elsewhere, but I held off on posting the information until I knew something more concrete. Now I do.

According to Silvervision, The Rise and Fall of WCW will be spread across three discs. The first disc will contain a substantial documentary feature as well as interview remarks that didn’t make the cut. Discs two and three are the match portion of collection. There will be 20 matches in all. Here’s how it breaks down:

    Looking down the match lineup, this definitely looks like a buy. Midnights/RnRs? Check. Flair/Steamboat? Check. Cruisers? Check. Sting/Vader? Check. The one Goldberg match I wanted to see here? Check. I am so there, and I hate WWE for bilking me out of more money.

  • Steven Gepp

    I’m only gonna bitch about two things: One, the WarGames match they chose. One with the Road Warriors would have been so much better. And what about Ron Simmons, first black heavyweight champ? Surely he must get some love. Apart from that… awesome set!

  • http://comicsnexus.com/2009/07/02/im-just-sayin-65/ Greg Manuel

    A fine point about Ron Simmons. The reaction shot of the one black guy in the crowd after the big win still sits with me 17 years later.

    Also – I would’ve preferred at least one more WarGames match…namely the best of its genre, IMHO: Sting’s Squadron vs. the Dangerous Alliance. WarGames 1992

  • diz

    Flair/Sting from 2001 should have been on there, just as a historical curiosity – the last “proper” WCW match, but booked by Vince McMahon…

  • fandlottawa1

    I guess I shouldn’t be surprised there’s no mention of Chris Benoit’s contribution to WCW….

  • http://robblatt.com Rob Blatt

    It’s kinda sad that Benoit won’t be mentioned in the DVD and we MAYBE might see a glipse of him with the horsemen. He did a lot of hard work for the company and his jumping ship with Saturn and Malenko was one of the big turning points in the monday night wars and him walking away the same night as winning a world title was big news.

    Things we won’t see on the DVD? The Warrior for sure, but then again the WWE likes to rub mistakes like that in our faces. I also wonder if any mention of Bischoff firing Flair and Flair’s return will be on it.

  • http://comicsnexus.com/2009/07/02/im-just-sayin-65/ Greg Manuel

    What’s also disappointing about not being able to watch Benoit, is there was an AMAZING Tag Title match with him and Malenko trying to regain the belts from Raven and Saturn, that took place on an episode of Thunder. I still remember the finish, because I was rooting for Benoit/Malenko. Malenko climbed the top rope, and got shoved by Raven right onto Saturn’s shoulders…RIGHT into a Death Valley Driver.

  • Ernie

    one thing good about the matches part is some are high calibre matches featuring cruiserweights but I wish WWE could have featured main event matches like the Goldberg/Hogan match…. I still remember when I saw it before on TV. I still can’t forget the reaction of the audience when Goldberg won.. On thing I’ve noticed with the match line up is most of the wrestlers involved in those matches previously worked in WWE with the exception of Sting.. correct me if I’m wrong in this part…

  • chris

    none of the sting vs muta matchs these where great matches great muta for ever

  • Jordan

    I just saw the documentary. It missed a lot since it documents from seventies to the end of WCW, so obviously they will have to leave out some parts. There are no mentions to Benoit, which makes sense, but there is also no Bret Hart, Ron Simmons, very little Sting, and a lot of other big names missed out on which was sort of disappointing. Overall it’s not as good as the Rise and Fall of ECW, but I would be stupid to expect a DVD of that quality. It’s worth picking up for the matches alone, but the documentary is very good and also worth checking out. I would give it a 7.5/10
