this DVD set was fantastic ! of all of the DVD sets focused on a WWE superstar ive ever seen, it is my second favorite EVER ! it beats out DVD sets on vince McMahon, rey mysterio jr, stone cold, big show, ultimate warrior, HBK, undertaker, cactus jack, great muta, Abdullah the butcher, the Dudley boys and macho man. the only one I like better is "one of a kind " about RVD.
DVD ONE: dvd one is roddy piper's life story. it was very interesting to watch and listen to. a lot of times when im watching a DVD about a wrestler , I end up thinking, "this is interesting and all but, when will it ever end ?". that was NOT the case here. I learned new things, I relived old things I remember from when I was little. and I remembered things I had forgotten. needless to say, there is NO OTHER guy out there quite like roddy. he's a one of a kind.
thought: do you ever notice how 99% of the time ppl mispronounce his name, even vince McMahon and other wrestlers and commentators ? he is constantly being referred to as "roddy roddy piper", when he's "rowdy" roddy piper.
the end of disc one and all of DVD TWO: some of the earlier matches from Portland and mid-atlantic wrestling are of poor quality. I know they are 30 years old but, I also know that this is the new millennium. we have the technology to take out snow and lines from old videos. there are 3 old matches from those places. they are interesting. they are against buddy rose and rip oliver, buddy rose and jack brisco respectively.
next up is the classic, extremely hard to find, dog collar match vs greg the hammer valentine. this was a selling point for me. it was the best match on the DVD.
moving on, piper's 6 wrestlemania matches were on this disc.

I might have some disagree with me, people who REALLY know wrestling, but I've found that all of these WWE biography movies to be pretty interesting, regardless if you are a big wrestling fan. Roddy Piper's story has been one of the most interesting to me.

Was good to get the highlight matches and Piper Pit segments.

There isn't much to the story of Roddy Piper which can't be found on wikipedia entries though.
