Editorial Reviews

Curt Hennig was just like his wrestling nickname, "perfect" in every aspect of his wrestling style. He got his start in a wrestling family with his father Larry the Axe Hennig, went through Verne Gagne s training camp, and gained experience in the AWA, reaching the pinnacle as the AWA Heavyweight Champion. But Curt Hennig s biggest spotlight would shine in WWE, when he became Mr. Perfect, a two-time Intercontinental Champion and 2007 inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect But A Worthy Tribute October 3, 2008
Curt Hennig is one of those people in wrestling who never had a major promotional machine behind himm (Hulk Hogan), wasn't always put in a position to be the top draw of the company (Ric Flair), or even the most popular wrestler (Sting) but was always over with the fans as either a face or heel, had some of the biggest respect & love from the wrestling industry today, and as without a doubt on of a kind weather he was in the ring wrestling or pulling a classic prank outside of it to the point where Michael Hayes at one time called him wrestling's version of "Dennis The Menace." The name given to him in the WWE just describes him at whatever he did in the wrestling business, PERFECT!

The documentry stars off talking about Hennig growing up, how he started wrestling young, and hung around his father (Larry "The Ax" Hennig) when he was training with Verne Gagne before meeting his future wife in high school. How Curt started wrestling for Vince Sr. before moving onto the AWA to team with his dad & Scott Hall (if you haven't seen him outside of his "Razor Ramon/nWo" look then you'll be suprized) was discussed before his feud with Nick Bockwinkel & becoming AWA Champion. How the feud between Curt & Greg Gagne spilled into a family feud with their fathers getting involved before losing the AWA Title to Jerry Lawler & leaving was brought up next. How he got the name Mr. Perfect & the truth behind the "Absolutely Perfect" sport skits was talked about with hysterical footage to go with the story before Wade Boggs tells a story of how Hennig saved his life. Curt's Intercontinental title reign was heavily talked about in terms of how he elevated the championship along with the SummerSlam match with Bret Hart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Curt Hennig, near perfection September 12, 2008
Some may wonder why WWE decided to release a DVD featuring Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, but I welcome it. I wish WWE would release more DVDs like this. Not every feature star needs to be a main event legend to get his own DVD in my opinion.
This release features one of the best documentaries WWE has produced on any wrestler. It's very informative, entertaining and moves at a fast pace. The story of Curt Hennig is told by his family, friends and his fellow wrestlers. All of Curt's career highlights are featured and those who only know him as Mr. Perfect from his debut in the WWF in the late eighties, will get to see all of Curt's prior accomplishments in wrestling before becoming Mr. Perfect, and there are a lot of them! For example, Curt was the AWA World Heavyweight Champion before his stint in the WWF, and this is talked about in great detail.

Most are complaining about the match selection, and with good reason. There are some good ones in this set, but not many. I was shocked when WWE decided to include the classic one-hour draw AWA World Heavyweight Championship match between Hennig and champion Nick Bockwinkel from Nov. of 1986. This is pro-wrestling at it's best, with the last 10 minutes being just as good, or better, than any championship match you'll see today. Both men bleed and push each other to the limit. One thing to look for, is when Bockwinkel blades, there is a fan near the front row, who excitedly pantomimes Bockwinkel blading to his friends, letting them know how smart he is to the business. When Bockwinkel places the blade back into his wrist tape, this same fan also pantomimes this to his friends too. It's pretty funny to see.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect September 9, 2008
A Kid's Review
Last year, WWE had an influx of some of the best dvds ever to his the market from September till the end of the year. This year we saw the cancellation of two awesome sets-Sting and Randy Savage. There is a Starcade dvd set that was going to be released and that is up in the air. The WWE has replaced most sets but nothing has gotten me excited like last year. History of Intercontinental Championship is the only dvd that looks good; Yet we voted for the matches on WWE.com and they only let us choose two per decade. Wow, what a set!

Now all you reviewers reaching for the non-helpful button, heres my review for this product. The cover says 90 minute documentary but its a few minutes off. The documentary is decent. I like how they seemed to bury Scott Hall when Henning and Hall were teaming in the AWA. I guess Hall will not show up in WWE anytime soon. They talk more of his life outside of the ring rather then in the ring. Thats ok, he was a great talent all around. A rather fast paced documentary. They did talk about his release but it was because of what happened on a WWE over seas trip. Mr.Perfect was messing with the world champion on a flight and they couldn't have that. Its a good story, look it up. The incident also cost Scott Hall his job. I didnt even know Henning showed up in TNA after his release. Again, WWE rewriting or covering up history.

Matches: 10?! Come on. They show amazing footage thru out the whole dvd and we can only get 10 matches. Bullsh&^. I would like too see the Lawler match, more of WCW matches-something WWE never really does, a Flair match from 1993, and some of his comeback matches of 2002. Alot of his return WWE matches looked very good. When you open the dvd, you see him using a perfect plex on Bam Bam Bigelow. That would have been an awesome match to watch. The matches are good but could have been better.

Overall, not a perfect dvd. Could have been much better, but not the worst WWE dvd release.

There aren't anywhere near enough matches on here. I really hope this set isnt the last word on Mr. Perfect because I'd love to see WWE put together a set similar to what they did... Read more

Dream Curt Hennig Matches
Everyone of these matches happened expect for the Cena match up. I believe he wrestled Angle but not sure. The question is though do you mean in his prime (which he probably wrestled the Undertaker back in the early 90s) or his last WWE comeback, where he was a shell of himself.

Original DVD Idea
Oh yes!!! We agree on something! Me and my friend was just talking about that and I said how great it would be if they did a dvd on wrestlers that died young!!!! Although I think Owen Hart should have his own dvd (which is LONG overdue) WWE would make lots of money if they released a dvd like you... Read More
