Product Description

For close to a decade, professional wrestling fans loved Clash of the Champions, a series of supercards that aired on TBS, featuring the biggest stars of first NWA and the WCW. Over the course of 35 events from 1988 through 1997, fans were treated to championship contests, grudge matches, and spectacular moments. Many of these matches have never been released on home video until now. The Best of the Clash of the Champions, hosted by 3-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion and WWE Hall of Famer, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes, will highlight some of the greatest matches in the event s ten-year history and features fan favorites Ric Flair, Sting, The Road Warriors, Lex Luger, the Four Horsemen, the nWo, and so many more.

Originally developed as a savvy basic cable alternative to the WWF's more flashy (and pricy) WrestleMania event, the WCW's Clash of the Champions quickly found its own gonzo identity, pitting its marquee superstars against each other in a series of matches that steadily upped the ante. (When you kick things off with a cage match between Ric Flair and Sting, you're setting a high bar.) This multi-disc collection provides a fantastic look at the greatest hits (and kicks, and jabs, and so forth) of this long-running event. Featuring over 30 matches, this set chronicles the state of the WCW from 1988 to 1997, ranging from the rise of homegrown titans such as Flair and Lex Luger to the later inclusion of WWF icons Hulk Hogan and the late, great Randy "Macho Man" Savage. (Those familiar with Stone Cold Steve Austin as only a chrome-domed good guy might be surprised to see his earlier incarnation as a follically blessed villain.) Improbable athleticism and hijinks of the individual matches aside--how exactly did that referee fail to spot that smuggled-in pair of nunchaku, anyway?--it's fascinating to watch the presentation evolve from relatively lo-fi affairs to full-on theatrical extravaganzas, to the point where the drama outside the ring often exceeds what's going on within the turnbuckles. By the time Sting shows up in the rafters dressed like The Crow with a bird of prey on his arm, the WCW engine has hit full glorious speed. Viewers not up on their grappling history may be confounded by the unexplained squabbles and hero-to-heel transformations that run throughout this compilation (the between-match segments featuring wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes are priceless in many different ways, but comprehensive isn't exactly one of them). Even without prior knowledge, however, the adrenaline rush presented by this set is tough to resist. Party discs don't come much finer. --Andrew Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars Memories May 23, 2012
No real complaints except maybe wish there was a documentary and a few different matches but all in all I highly recommend it to any WCW fan. I'm just happy Vince has decided to release this set wish he would do full releases with WCW PPV's like with Wrestlemania,Royal Rumble,Summer Slam etc..but still nice that he isn't forgetting the WCW fans. Also a side note Best Buy has 2 bonus matches:Hollywood Hogan vs. Rick Flair 1996 and The Midnight Express vs. The Fanatics 1988.

4.0 out of 5 stars WCW's Prime Time Television Extravaganza May 29, 2012
Before the era of "WCW Monday Nitro", there was one event available on cable television where you had the matches after match featuring the superstars of the National Wrestling Alliance/World Championship Wrestling against each other. WWE has "Saturday Night's Main Event" while NWA/WCW had theirs in "The Clash Of The Champions." Dusty Rhodes host this DVD set while it should also be noted that Jesse Ventura's commentary has been removed from the matches he was involved in.

NWA Champion Ric Flair vs. Sting - This was the match that made Sting a household name overnight as James J. Dillion was suspended over the ring in the cage to prevent interference in what has gone down as a classic encounter that has stood the test of time today. They went to a time limit draw & had a split decision with judges (which defeats the purpose of the judges in the first place but whatever). When Flair said on the Horsemen DVD that "we made a career making guys...", this was the best example possible that fits that statement.
Mar. '88
[Ric Flair: The Definitive Collection]

NWA Tag Team Champions Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard vs. Lex Luger & Barry Windham - The team also known as the "Twin Towers" dominated the first half of this match to the point where Luger he got the Torture Rack on Tully in the first minute & Barry had a sleeperhold so tight on Tully that he was able to keep it on when they both rolled out of the ring. The Horsemen later caught up & did what they did best in tag team wrestling by cutting the ring in half & making their quick tags having this match go back & forth between both teams with the crowd hot the entire time. James J. Dillion got involved in the end as this match didn't go long but it was non-stop action from start to finish.

I'm a bit let down by the fact that there's no feature about the history of the Clash of the Champions for this. This is just a collections of matches and Dusty does a few wraparounds here and there. Clash of the Champions has an interesting history too. If I remember correctly, NWA/WCW wanted to run a PPV on the same day as one of the Wrestlemanias but Vince pulled some weight and said that if any service provider aired another wrestling PPV, he would no longer provide content for them so NWA/WCW couldn't do a PPV but they then did the Clash of the Champions on basic cable for free to counter program the Wrestlemania that year. Then they used this to counter the other big WWF PPVs at the time. Unfortunately, nothing like that is in here. It's just a collection of matches and most of them are probably on youtube by now but with the original music and commentary that I'm guessing they pulled out because there's quite a few gaps in between Tony Schvione's(sp?)commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSICS May 14, 2014

Ah yes the classic event that had many a fan hooked from NWA/WCW, the Clash of the Champions. This event was originally started to go against the WWF’s Wrestlemania. It would see many classic matches and moments over the years. That is why I would have loved for this to have had a documentary included like the Starrcade set. Or maybe also include moments like the Nitro sets. Still it is a great set full of classic matches.



1.[NWA TITLE]RIC FLAIR VS STING-from the very first Clash we get we get the first main event, and what a main event it was. This is a classic with two legends from the sport. This is also the night widely regarded as the night Sting was made. They tell an excellent story here that lasts the TV time limit of 45 minutes. The judges ended up scoring this as a draw so Flair retained in an instant classic.

2.[NWA TAG TITLE]ARN ANDERSON & TULLY BLANCHARD VS LEX LUGER AND BARRY WINDHAM-this match happened at the first one as well before the previous match on this set. This is another classic in my opinion as this one is nonstop action. All four men look great with some excellent back and forth action. JJ of course has to get involved but it back fires costing his team the win and the belts.

3.[NWA TAG TITLE]ARN ANDERSON & TULLY BLANCHARD VS STING & DUSTY RHODES-this match happened at the second Clash and was one of those classic NWA feuds of the Horsemen. This was an excellent match and one that every fan should see. These two teams of rivals gave the fans a classic as the action was back and forth and everywhere.
