This DVD set is a combination of a tribute and a documentary of sorts. It features some of the more memorable matches in the Legion of Doom's career as a tag team and it also puts a spotlight on the tumultuous life of the late, great Hawk.

I was afraid the latter would be a tacky show on exploitation on Vince McMahon's part, as he's had an up and down relationship with both Road Warriors. However, the look back at Hawk's rocky life is done in a classy way with insight on his life, commentary by Animal and none of the "shock value" stuff that the WWE used in their more recent Ultimate Warrior DVD.

It's the matches that make the DVD set, though. There are so many great selections from the LOD's time in Georgia Championship Wrestling, the AWA, the NWA/WCW and, of course, the WWE. Some of these matches even include commentary by Animal himself. A really cool feature, in my opinion.

If you're a lifelong wrestling fan, such as myself, you're bound to enjoy this selection. One of the better "legend" compilation DVD sets out there right now. Even better than The History of The Undertaker, as far as I'm concerned.

I bought this 2-disc DVD set after reading the wonderful Road Warriors book by Joe 'Animal' Laurinaitis. Although not intended as a connected release, that is how they come across. Read the book, see the movie!

Disc One: The documentary on the first disc is surprisingly thoughtful and well-edited. I am subtracting one star for the absolutely terrible generic heavy metal played continuously through every interview. It sounds like a rejected score from the old Smackdown Two PS1 game. Thankfully they change the music when it comes time to relate Hawk's tragic early death.

Do not pass up the Extras on disc one, some hilarious promos from the Road Warriors. But more importantly, and this is worth the purchase of the DVDS: Brief 1-minute commentaries from Michael 'P.S.' Hayes and Paul Ellering about life, and striving for goals. These guys look into the camera and tell the viewers (and aspiring wrestlers) to get up in the morning and reach for goals. And if you're not getting up in the morning with something to get up for, then FIND SOMETHING! And get up. Surprising, but effective advice. (Also great 2005 commentary from Jim Ross and Animal on an early match against two legends in Las Vegas.)

Disc Two: One of the highlights of Animal's book (and a great recommend there) is his recall of the time the Road Warriors finally got to wrestle Hulk Hogan in Japan. Here, we see the actual 1991 Japanese match, to a sell-out Japanese crowd. Hulk Hogan and the Road Warriors are in their prime, and it shows. Hogan is almost a heel for this match, since it wouldn't be aired in America. Great stuff to watch, as hardcore as anything the later 'Attitude Era' could come up with. Hogan gets his own face paint shortly into the match, his own blood! Hawk gets busted open, too. The new alternate commentaries by Jim Ross and Animal for several of these matches is a true highlight, you've gotta hear them call these matches!

After I bought this, I put off watching it for a few weeks. I thought I knew the Road Warriors. When I finally sat down to watch it, I was blown away. One of the best DVD releases from the WWE that I can think of. Buy it!

Not that there's ever been any doubt, but this collection cements the fact that the Road Warriors/Legion of Doom changed the face of tag team wrestling forever and proved themselves worthy of the accoladed heaped upon them. The main feature has Joe "Animal" Laurinaitis discussing the Warriors entire existence from their first meeting in Chicago to their move to Minneapolis to their early days in Georgia right up until Hawk's tragic death in 2003. There are plenty of other wrestlers, managers, friends and colleagues adding comments and memories about the duo throughout including my personal favorite moment where Barry Darsow aka Demolition Smash claims Demolition wasn't a ripoff of the LOD. Good candid stuff much like the ECW dvd and much like that set, the feature ends on a down note. It's sad that the Road Warriors went out with a whimper rather than a roar, but this set does a good job of closing their chapter of professional wrestling history properly.

Great documentary on the career of one of pro wwrestlings greatest tag teams. The Road Warriors or LOD are without a doubt trail blazers. From their domination in ring work. To their legendary look of face paint and spike shoulder pads. They were true originals also featured the personal side of the team. A must have for any true wrestling fan for sure.

Hey I remmember going to see Hawk and Animal when I was in Abbeville High School S.C.back in 1978.They were the best tag team and best showman of wrestling and this DVD shows that.I was really sad to hear Hawks passing but I was really happy to learn Animal became a born again christian and was able to lead his brother (HAWK) to become a believer in The LORD JESUS CHRIST before he passed! Long live Animal and Hawks memory(WHAT A RUSH)! ! ! !!!!!!

I enjoyed watching the documentary of the Road Warriors. It goes into detail of how they got started. I always like getting the backstory on wrestlers & how they got to the point they are.

The matches left more to be desired though. While there were some great matches on the disc, you'd think being one of the world's most dominant tag teams, that they would have included more matches. They totally missed the fueds they had in the WWF with the Beverly Brothers & The Nasty Boys. While they talked about it in the documentary, they left out any matches that involved Droz. I would have also wanted to see the fake suicide of Hawk. This isn't a bad buy, but they should have added a third disc with more matches or special features. Some promos would have been a nice addition.

I enjoy watching the wwe road warriors, the life and death of the most dominant tag team in wrestling history. watching this video brought back old memories of the road warriors wiping the mat with their opponents and the feeling "oh what a rush", a phrase that road warrior hawk made popular,back in the day.

Not too bad of an attempt by WWE in this one. It does a good job of covering the career of LOD, however, I do feel like there was a lot more that could have been shown/discussed in the early part of their career. It seemed like the time in WCW, AWA, and Japan were rushed through only to get to things in WWF/E that overall were not that important. But, for the right price, it a DVD worth adding to your collection.

The history behind this dynamic tag team is really cool, especially for those of us who are fans of this legendary tag team. They use a lot of good footage and talk to many of the wrestlers who battled these guys years ago. Most of the matches on the DVD are from their early days and it's almost comical to see the differences in physique between them and their early opponents. A definite plus for any wrestling fan's collection, especially at the price it was offered at.
