Editorial Reviews

We have produced "shoot interviews" with wrestling legends before and we have even completed a bigger challenge, the Dynamite Kid Documentary funded on Kickstarter. Now we have produced the definitive documentary on Jim Crockett Promotions and how that company impacted wrestlers, wrestling fans, and the wrestling world. We cover from it's beginnings up until it was sold to Ted Turner. Thanks to your financial support, we have acquired the licensing rights to some never before seen handheld footage from Mr. George Pantas. Mr Pantas was a videographer that lived in Virginia and was given special permission by the promoters to shoot ringside. This footage was shot over the mid 70s to 1983 and will provide some fantastic B roll footage for the Crockett documentary. Footage for talents like Wahoo McDaniel, Greg Valentine, Paul Jones, Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, Dusty Rhodes, Roddy Piper, BlackJack Mulligan, and several more with NEVER BEFORE scene Arena footage. This is the only known footage of the Crockett promotion that is currently not owned by the WWE, so we're happy that it will now be part of the collection. We'll obviously use alot of this footage as "B roll" in the actual documentary, but we'll additionally have this footage to use on the "extras" that will be part of the 3 disc DVD release!

Diehard fans will know a lot of this stuff already but there were some revelations made.
Joey Saylor
This is an excellent documentary about the rise and fall of perhaps the most influential wrestling promotion of the 80's.

It was so great to see a great pro wrestling DVD set that has no involvement from the WWE.

I ordered this DVD right from Highspots when it was first announced and I have to say that I found this to be an excellent documentary. I was kind of worried about the project because I still enjoy the NWA and Crockett shows on DVD and on WWE Classics. I just wanted to make sure they would do it justice; and the producers most certainly did themselves and the fans proud. I recommend this as highly as I could.

From 1988 to 2001, World Championship Wrestling was one of the biggest wrestling promotions on the planet but it had to evolve from somewhere & that was Jim Crockett Promotions which at one time was the top territory for the National Wrestling Alliance for decades & this is their complete story that hasn't been told before through the eyes of various people including Jim Crockett Jr., PW Torch's Bruce Mitchell, George South, Jim Cornette, J.J. Dillion, David Crockett, historian Mike Mooneyham, Jackie Crockett, Ole Anderson, Paul Jones, Abe Jacobs, referee Tommy Young, Masked Superstar Bill Eddie, Ivan Koloff, Tully Blanchard, Don Kernodle, Jimmy Valant, Magnum T.A., Rock N' Roll Express, Baby Doll, Ronnie Garvin and archival interviews from Dusty Rhodes & Arn Anderson & Ric Flair.

The documentary begins talking about people talking about the type of man Jim Crockett Sr. was in terms of how he was a man of his word & respected the fans even down to the type of car he drives before going into how the promotion was labeled as a tag team territory followed by how the death of "Big Jim" effected the company behind the scenes. George Scott becoming the booker was talked about next as far as how the territory changed from tag teams to singles & many of the new talents being brought in that would become staples of the company including the impact of Johnny Valentine before going into the infamous air plane crash with Flair telling a funny story about why the hospital called 911 when one of the boys came to see him afterwords & how the business moved on with more names being brought in.

This was a very well done 3-DVD set by Highspots. It was so great to see a great pro wrestling DVD set that has no involvement from the WWE. Since the WWE owns all of the old NWA footage, they were able to get some great footage of some matches from a fan in Virginia from the late 70's and early 80's. Jim Crockett Promotions produced the best professional wrestling ever. I grew up watching Mid-Atlantic Wrestling and never missed a show every Saturday on TV. I never was a fan of the WWF/WWE as it always came across as cartoonish to me (even as a kid). Mid-Atlantic Wrestling had the best wrestling talents ever and this set includes interviews with a lot of these legends: Jimmy Valiant, Paul Jones, referee Tommy Young, Ivan Koloff, Baby Doll, Magnum T. A., Tully Blanchard, Ole Anderson, Rock 'N' Roll Express, Bill Eadie, Ronnie Garvin, Abe Jacobs, Jim Cornette, J. J. Dillon, and Don Kernodle. It was great to see all three Crockett brothers (Jim, David, and Jackie Crockett) talk about the history of Jim Crockett Promotions, which was started by their father Jim Crockett Sr. back in the 1930's. The bonus interviews and matches on discs 2 & 3 were very fun to watch as well. The wrestlers told some great stories in these interviews.

I was very pleased by Highspots' and Ellbow Productions' efforts on this. The documentary covers about everything from the beginning until the end with a lot of key input from major players like Paul Jones, Jim Cornette, Rock 'n Roll Express, Ole Anderson, Tully Blanchard, J.J. Dillon and last but not least, the Crockett brothers (all 3 of them!). Diehard fans will know a lot of this stuff already but there were some revelations made. Jim Crockett, Jr. was very forthcoming and held back very little except when it came to listing Dusty Rhodes "faults" as he called them. Clips from Rhodes' previous shoot with RF video are included as well as Ric Flair's shoot with Highspots from 2008.

The extras are not just throw away clips but give us some really good extra stuff like Ronnie Garvin explaining why he left when he did, Bill Eadie tells a good story about refusing to do the honors for Magnum TA and J.J. Dillon gives a tour of his memorabilia. Jim Cornette also tells some good stories. I do get a kick out of Tully telling his story about leaving again and acting like it's a big revelation. If you've watched his other interviews including WWE's Horsemen DVD he has told that story countless times! The George Pantas match footage is fine for what it is, but it's mostly just some edited short clips from back in the 70s.

If you were disappointed with the quality of the Dynamite Kid documentary you won't be with this one. Complaints about that were apparently taken seriously and corrected in this documentary. It's very much in the WWE style which ironically is a good thing when it comes to DVDs like this.
