I have to give it up to WWE even though they now suck hard they showed me that they are still capable of putting out a good DVD...sometimes.

I was a huge fan of Brian Pillman from the beginning till the tragic end. I can remember watching the Hollywood Blondes use every trick in the book in feuds with Ricky Steamboat/Shane Douglas and the Ric Flair/Arn Anderson classic confrontation.

This DVD highlights it all. Early days in WCW, Teaming with Austin, The above mentioned Blondes feud with Flair&Anderson. Battling former partner 'Stunning' Steve Austin. Joining the Horsemen. Genesis of the loose cannon, Debut in ECW on his way to 'Rape, Pilage & Plunder the WWF!'

This is a must have for any collector of WWE's biography DVD's or an old school Brian Pillman fan. The WWE Hall Of Fame will never be legitimate until they honor the man who innovated the high risk style in America. And as the Loose Cannon 'worked' the wrestling world! Wrestling is not the same without him, long live the legacy of Flyin' Brian!

This is a DVD I would definitely recommend for the slew of wrestling fans who came in during the "Attitude" era who only have one image of Brian Pillman. The documentary and accompanying bonus matches really illustrate the pioneering role Brian Pillman played in changing the landscape of the American wrestling scene. The matches from his WCW days are amazing display of what the WWE is capable of now that they own nearly all of America's professional wrestling video archives. Furthermore, these type of documentaries are what I love to see as they truly expose the humanity and complexity of both professional wrestlers and the wrestling business.

Excellent DVD. The documentary is great. We hear from several of Mr. Pillman's wrestling colleagues along with some of his family members including his widow and children. The set has 15-16 matches and a few promos. "Pillmans XXX Files" is definitely at the top of of my favorites list. It's classic stuff. I haven't watched the matches yet, but they're probably really, really good. It's sad that Brian Pillman left us so soon. While I was watching the documentary, I thought about what Chris Jericho wrote in his second book. He watched the DVD and said "...it's amazing how many of us ("us" as in wrestler's like himself) have died young. It's so sad." I agree with him 110%. It is sad. But like the rest, Brian Pillman will always be remembered and won't ever be forgotten. RIP Brian Pillman.

Great story, Sad story. I really enjoy watching his matches, I never got to seeing him in his prime, since I became a fan in late 1999. One of the top best high flying style wrestlers WWE ever had, short run, but what a legend! Great Great DvD

From seeing this DVD about the life and career of Brian Pillman, I have to say that it does a very good job in chronicling Pillman's life and career from his childhood to his start in Calgary Stampede Wrestling to his career in WCW, which included his partenship with Steve Austin as the Hollywood Blondes, to his matches with people such as Luger and Jushin Liger, his membership of the 4 Horsemen and the beginning his "loose cannon" angle as well as his stints in ECW and WWE(which would see him joining the Hart Foundation and him partcipation in the infamous gun incident).

I also thought that the matches that are included in this DVD are very good as well, such as his matches with Luger, Liger, Goldust, etc.

Overall, I think that this DVD is a great chronicling of the life and career of Brian Pillman and shows why he is considered to be a great wrestler.

I was thrilled when I saw that WWE released a DVD set for Brian Pillman. He was the reason I got back into wrestling in '92 when flyin Brian turned heel and started tagging with Barry Windham. Like other WWE releases this features a documentary on pillmans life from beginning to end. They talk to his family and some of the guys that worked with him throughout the years. It's a very good story and you learn alot of stuff about him that you may have not known. It's too bad that it took his death for a DVD of his career but it's a nice tribute for a great athlete and a better man.
