The Best of Wrestling slams is nice mix of 10 old school wrestling matches from the early 90's featuring famous veterans as well as some of today's stars as younger rookies. Overall, the matches, while not great, notable or must-see, are decent for an evening's entertainment. The DVD also features some un-noteworthy special features. In all, it's a nice ride down memory lane if nothing else.
Here are the contents of this DVD:
THE MATCHES:
1. Lightning Kid vs. Dapper Dan: Kid of course went on to become the 1-2-3 Kid who went on to become Syxx who evolved in WWF's X-pac. Dan went on to nothing. Decent match. 5 minutes. 3 stars.
2. Crash vs. Doink: Crash (the Terminator) became WCW's Hugh Morrus. Doink is of course the famous WWF early-mid 90's gimmick. Squash match featuring a post-match run-in by Koko B. Ware of WWF 80s fame. 3 minutes. DUD.
3. "Cowboy" Bob Orton vs. Tom Lodly (sp???): From the NAWA. Orton, recognized a superior technical wrestler, made a name in the 80s WWF. Orton puts on a wrestling clinic against his jobber opponent. 5 minutes. 3 stars.
4. Baron Samidi (w/ Bob Orton) vs. Lynn Wagner: From the NAWA. Samidi became Papa Shango in the WWF who became Kama who became the Godfather. Basically another jobber squash. Tons of power moves. 8 minutes. 2 stars.
5. "War Eagle" Chris Chavis vs. Dr. X: From South Atlantic Wrestling. "War Eagle" (definitely ripped at this point) went on to become the WWF's Tatanka in the early-mid 90s. Decent match. 6 minutes. 2 stars.
6. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat vs. Johnny Z: From the NAWA. Steamboat, of course, is a legend in the business and a noted technical master noted for his classic matches against Ric Flair and Randy Savage. Jobber squash. Decent match. 5 minutes. 2 stars.

Wrestling's Greatest Hits Collection is a two volume DVD set consisting of Steve Austin's Greatest Hits (which chronicles matches from out of his rookie year (app. 1990) in the USWA, including his legendary feud with his teacher/trainer, the late Texas legend "Gentlemen" Chris Adams) and Best of Wrestling Slams ( which is a nice mix of 10 old school wrestling matches from the early 90's featuring famous veterans as well as some of today's stars as younger rookies. In addition both DVDs also feature some un-noteworthy special features.
Overall, it's a great set if you are into old-school style wrestling.
Here is the rundown of each DVD:
STEVE AUSTIN'S GREATEST HITS
THE MATCHES
1. Austin vs. "Gentlemen" Chris Adams: "Come As You Are Street Fight." Austin's first big program was his legendary feud with his trainer Chris Adams where the two men were embattled in a bizarre love triangle which involved Adam's ex-wife Jeanie Clark and his new wife Toni. This street fight was awesome. Austin's in football pads and Adam's in a judo gi. Tons of arena-sprawling action. 11 minutes. 4 stars.
2. Austin and "Missouri Tiger" Jeff Gaylord vs. Chico Torres and Frogman LeBlanc: Typical mid-card tag match. Nothing much became of the other workers. Decent action. 5 minutes. 2 stars.
3. Eric Embry and Steve Austin w/ Tojo Yamamoto vs. "Gorgeous" Gary Young and "Superstar" Bill Dundee: This is a good old-school tag match. The match itself gets off to a slow start but totally picks up toward the middle to a really hot finish. 12 minutes. 3 ½ stars.
4. "Missouri Tiger" Jeff Gaylord, Sheik Braddock and Austin w/General Skandor Akbar vs. "Gentleman" Chris Adams, "Maniac" Matt Borne and Eric Embry: This was a solid match with tons of nice spots and great action.

While not the best wrestling video of all time, this shows some vintage footage from some smaller southern promotions from the late 80s and early 90s. It brings back a lot of memories for me. I would recommend it to any fan of wrestling who is not just limited to the "Crash TV" shown these days. It's definately worth the price you pay here.
