It's not just all matches, they also do a 10-15min biography on the 15 wrestlers they showcase on the DVD. I have to admit the short biographys are VERY well done. I realized something..None of the matches that had Jesse Ventura do commentary are on this!!?! WTF? I think it has to do with the royalties lawsuit they have.. What does this mean? Well basically all the WWE's big matches from 85-89 are missing including Savage/Steamboat, Savage/Hogan, Bulldogs/Hart Foundation, etc..etc.. Lots of NWA matches could've have gone here too including Wargames, Sting/Flair and any of the NWA tag teams matches..

MATCHES:
1. Greg Valentine vs. Roddy Piper (Starcade 11/24/83) - This is a Dog-Collar match. This means both wrestlers are attached by a chain around their neck! Valentine injuried Pipers ear and now Piper want revenge. **** (out of 5 stars)

2. Sgt. Slaughter vs. Iron Sheik (MSG 5/21/84) - This isn't the famous Boot Camp match, it's the one before. Really good brawl! ****

3.Greg Valentine vs. Tito Santana (Lumberjack match 3/17/85) - Lumberjack Match means if someone is thrown out of the ring, they get thrown back. There is no escape! These guys have had much better matches. **1/2

4. Junkyard Dog vs. Randy Savage (Wrestling Classic Finals 11/7/85) - JYD is fun to watch, and this match reminded me just how freaklishly awesome Savage was in the 80's. **1/2

5. Ultimate Warrior vs. Bobby Heenan (Weasel Suit Match - 6/25/88) - Whoever loses gets stuffed in a weasel suit. OMG Heenan is a better bumper and worker than Ultimate Warrior! Seriously! 1/2*

6. Dusty Rhodes vs. Ric Flair (NWA Championship - Starcade 84) - Flair defends the NWA title. Whoever wins gets 1 million dollars. Special guest ref. is Joe Frasier. Not bad!

Lately I've been (and always have been) on a nostagia kick, more so than the average fan. It's something about the 80s (the WWF) that I love so much I just can't identify it (I know I sound markish, but bare with me here!). This 3 DVD set about the Greatest Wrestling Stars of the 80s is a definite testament to the trend setters as far as the 1980s go. Maybe the reason why I appreciate the 80s so much is because if it wasn't for the 80s, there wouldn't be a wrestling business today, and for that, I appreciate the decade of the 1980s. Here's my review of the matches with a little extra material as well:

(Note: Workrate fans, try not to take these ratings TOO seriously. This is the 80s I'm talking about here, so even though there is ONE 5 star match, try not to search for TOO MANY of them here. My ratings are based on real feelings and nostagic purposes. I hope you understand.)

Also, I use WWF here, as this was the 80s, a different time and era.

Disc 1

Bios:

Bobby "The Brain" Heenan

The Junkyard Dog

Sgt. Slaughter

Greg "The Hammer" Valentine

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper

Matches:

Greg Valentine vs. Roddy Piper - NWA United States Championship Dog Collar Match - Starrcade 11/24/83, ***1/2 (We begin with a very good match from the NWA. They entertained me with this one.)

Sgt. Slaughter vs. Iron Shiek - Madison Square Garden 5/21/84, ***1/2-**** (I honestly have to watch this match again. I truly enjoyed the brutality of this match, as this one was WAY before the hardcore material that was populated in the 90s. As for the Sheik and Slaughter, they brutalized each other in this one, and had the MSG crowd roaring.)

This is an incredible collection. But I really feel that it is for the fans that enjoyed it during that era. I can't imagine the fans that started watching during The Rock, Austin, Mankind era or god forbid the stuff that passes for wrestling these days.

3 discs isn't even enough to cover this era, there are plenty of Stars left off, I am hoping this is a Volume 1 of sorts and the WWE will make more if the fans take to this one.

I truly enjoy the depth and time they explain each SuperStar and the impact they made during their time. They really go in depth almost going through the entire career. Sure some the the depressing stuff is left off (i.e Steamboat's 2nd run in the WWF) but I think that is for the better.

Going in depth with guys like Paul Orndorff, Arn Anderson, & Ricky Steamboat, shed light on some characters that were never over the top gimmick wise.

I was also to see Dusty Rhoads on this collection expecially since his stint with the WWF in the early 90's was laughable at best. But I respect Vince and the WWE for not just showcasing WWF talent and really showed a nice spectrum of guys that were wildly popular, but not to the Hogan Status.

For fans of the Old School 80's wrestling this is the kind of stuff that reminds me why I enjoyed wrestling in the first place, and begs the question, does Stephanie McMahon and the current creative department at the WWE watch any of this stuff? They should be using these as molds for current characters. While the match tempo has changed over the years, close attention to good in ring action never goes out of style.

One thing I noticed is that despite the characters of your Hogan's, Piper's and Slaughters, the SPORT of wrestling was taken a lot more serious.

The Bad....
