Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The WWE is all about spectacle and illusion, so the idea of putting out a real look at the lives of its superstars sounds, on paper, like a cheesy bore. Surprisingly, Before They Were WWE Superstars is hardly boring; in fact, it's the best non-pay-per-view DVD the organization has ever released. The documentary details the rise of 12 midlevel names (Kurt Angle is the only huge figure profiled) and the strange, often brutal roads they took to make it as pro wrestlers. Besides Angle, William Regal, Edge and Christian, Lita, Spike Dudley, Mighty Molly, the Hardy Boyz, Bradshaw, Stacy Keibler, and Billy Gunn tell their stories (often punctuated by comments from their parents or siblings), and all are fascinating vignettes. Say what you want about pro wrestling, but the drive and determination displayed by these people is not only impressive, but uplifting. --Dave McCoy

From the Back Cover

In no-holds-barred interviews, backed up with tons of exclusive footage, learn what Kurt Angle, Stacy Keibler, Christian, Edge, Lita, Spike Dudley, Mighty Molly, the Hardy Boyz, Bradshaw, William Regal, and Billy Gunn did before joining the WWF and becoming world-famous celebrities and WWF superstars. Which two WWF Superstars have been best friends since sixth grade? Who preceded his WWF career as a bull rider in a rodeo? Which WWF Superstar has pursued a show biz career since the age of 3? DVD extras include rings debuts and early matches as well as Edge & Christian's winter fun, Bradshaw's bear wrestling days, Spike's hardcore childhood, and a story where Kurt Angle gets 50 cents. Approx. 2.5 hours.

Format: DVD
"Before They Were WWF Superstars" takes a look at a handful of today's WWF Superstars before they made it to the big-time. Through a combination of interviews with the wrestlers and their family members along with home videos, personal photos and other rare footage you learn a little bit about your favorite (and non-favorite) WWF personalities long before they become fixtures on Monday and Thursday nights. In all, it's a great "biography" feature delving into their past lives. In addition to the feature, this special DVD edition contains early matches of the wrestlers as well as extended interview segments with them. In all, it's a great video to watch for WWF fans, be they hardcore or just casual.
THE CONTENTS
These are the following WWF superstars featured in this video:
1. Kurt Angle: Kurt and family talk about his childhood and his amateur and Olympic wrestling career.
2. "Mighty" Molly: Molly discusses her gymnastics background, her love for classic cars and how she broke into the wrestling business on the indy circuit as well as WCW.
3. Bradshaw: Bradshaw talks about his football career and the many years he spent touring through Japan, Europe, Mexico as well as the indy circuit and overcoming various injuries before making it to the WWF.
4. Spike Dudley: Spike and family talk about his childhood love for wrestling and how Spike has always been tougher than leather. COOL video footage of Spike as a baby swimming, as a teen playing football and as an adult killing himself on the independent scene.
5. Stacy Keibler: Stacy talks about her life in show business as a professional dancer from early childhood. Her career transitions from cheerleader to WCW Nitro Girl to Diva are recapped.

Format: DVD
I understand the limits of this DVD - that the WWF would like to release a new Entertainment DVD at least once a month to coincide with the latest Pay Per View DVD releases, so a stellar release is much to ask for. When I saw that only a small amount of WWF Superstars were represented, I was a tad upset, but like I said, I understand why. Hell, the disk IS like, 2 and 1/2 hours long... but hey...
With that being said, the Disk IS a good buy, with superstars the likes of Edge, Christian, Regal, Billy Gunn, Stacy Keibler, Molly Holly, Bradshaw, Spike and Kurt Angle being interviewed about their pre-WWF days, with some neat footage to boot. It has WCW footage from Keibler, Molly and Regal, and good indy footage of Edge & Christian as well. Matt, Jeff Hardy and Lita are on the disk too, but their "time" on the disk is mostly used footage from the previously released Hardy Boys & Lita disks.
A great note to the disks credit are the extra features, which include a 1996 Jeff Hardy vs. RVD match - a 1995 Molly vs. Jackie match and early matches of the Smoking Gunns (vs. Spark Plugg & 123 Kid!), Justin Hawk Bradshaw and some other extras. Definatelly good, as long as a follow-up (2nd volume) disk is in the works... cause it would be real cool to see a Before they were Stars with RVD, Jericho, Booker, Undertaker and the Rock just to name a few...

Format: VHS Tape
This is a great addition to any WWE lover's wrestling videos. I bought this in March and I still watch it sometimes. It is too bad WWE Confidential is now airing all of the VHS footage, should have waited I guess, lol!
