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

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.

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 - It should be noted that Horsemen manager J.J. Dillion was suspended in a cage to prevent interference in this match while there were also 3 judges at ringside (Penthouse model Patty Mullen & NWA executives Sandy Scott & Gary Juster) to make a ruling incase the match went to a draw. Both men were feeling each other early before Sting was able to get control staying one step ahead of Flair & constantly going back to a specific series of basic holds while also showcasing his strength with offense focusing on a specific area of the body while Flair also worked over different areas of the body with his trademark offense including chops so hard that you saw a cut on Sting's chest as they continued to trade momentum throughout this match with Flair living up to his nickname of being "the dirtiest player in the game" taking a shortcut whenever possible while Sting fought back including using some of Flair's own offense against him resulting in a match that made Sting a household name overnight in what has gone down as a classic encounter that has stood the test of time today.

I grew up on Clash of the Champions. The first one converted me from a WWF guy to a full blown WCW fan until the Russo era hit. Some of the matches are short (Medusa Nakano, and I have no idea what a six man tag would go 5 minutes or so), but the classics, like Flair Sting from I, Steamboat Austin, and even some forgotten ones like Lex vs. Flair make this a wide array of matches with a host of stars.

This wasn't a bad DVD set, could've been a lot better, match selection wise, and they could have made a document for this. I love the documentaries on many of these sets.

Seriously, Mil Mascara vs Cactus Jack?! What about The Dragon Master, Buzz Sawyer, and Great Muta vs Ole and Arn Anderson and Ric Flair that was on the same card?! We all know McMahon doesn't put the greatest emphasis on things he doesn't create, but c'mon now! And that 15 man battle royal on disc 2 was weak, and so was the talent in WCW at that point. And how do you have a best of Clash and NOT show any Road Warriors matches or clips? I'm giving this 2 Stars, because this was a rush job thrown together
