WWE: Monday Night War, The(DVD)

Now it can be told. In 1995, two wrestling companies squared off on Monday night television to compete head to head in an unprecedented confrontation. On one side, Vince McMahon, the promoter who created WWE and made the industry what it is today. On the other, WCW, owned by media giant Ted Turner, and run by an ambitious man named Eric Bischoff. This is the whole story, told by those who created it, lived it, and survived it. "The Monday Night War".

While I don't really pay attention to wrestling like I did in the past, I started getting into WWE (back then known as the WWF) right when the Monday Night Wars were at their most intense peak. This was when Stone Cold was the most popular WWE superstar and his rivalry with Vince McMahon was getting out of control each week. This was also when The Rock was a heel that quickly grew on you, as the crowd would always repeat all of his sayings when he'd try to talk. Bash the crowd, he would, but that wouldn't stop the crowd from "singing along" with him. I admit that I didn't really pay attention to the WCW, but I knew of the battle between the two corporations.
"The Monday Night War" finally reveals to you the complete (or as complete as it's going to get) story about the rivalry between the two giants, the WWE and the WCW. Here, you get all of the dirt and the low-down tricks that were implemented by each group. In one corner there's Vince McMahon, who takes his Monday night programming to new and subtle heights. In the other corner is Eric Bishoff, who manages Ted Turner's WCW company. Determined to bring new blood and a new flavor to the game, Bishoff takes it up a notch by offering unpredictable wrestling programming that would endanger Vince's empire. The changes would force Vince to change the face of wrestling entertainment as we now know it. The fight between the two was brutal, vicious, and threatened the careers of hundreds upon hundreds of wrestlers on both sides.
This DVD was really interesting to watch, as I had no idea how close the WWE was to going out of business, and I had no idea of the impact that Bischoff had on the WWE.

What a great time in wrestling people...wow do i miss those days...a great dvd,only reason i give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because this dvd is from a WWF/WWE point of view...so do you really think all the truths from a WCW point of view surface here??mmmmm no.but regardless it does a good job of showing how ted turners empire lead by the NWO and strong japanese/luchadore in ring action nearly buckled vince's WWF.With Ted Turner's seemingly endless supply of finances,Bischoff does talent raids grabbing stars like Savage,Hogan,Hall,Nash,Bret Hart,Luger to name a few...but as the NWO angle dragged on for nearly 3 years,growing stars such as Austin,The Rock,Triple H,and Mick Foley headlined a new "Attitude" charged WWF,Vince began using new angles and ideas which won the fans back for the majority of 1998 and all of 1999.the difference...WCW was not able to rebound because of its lack of making new stars and blowing lucrative amounts of money on Jay Leno,Dennis Rodman,Karl Malone,KISS etc. (this is not showcased on the dvd) WCW could have pushed their younger talent in 1999 such as bagwell,jericho,big show,benoit etc.,instead,they all went to WWF,bringing in vince russo was a disaster...and when the dust settles,Vince Mcmahon buys what was a 350 million $$ buisness 3 years prior...for a pathetic 6 million $$ in 2001,although it was viewed at the time as a victory to many fans...it did nothing but kill competition...since 2002,WWE stock regarding everything has dropped,as the swelled audience and many true wrestling fans have left due to tasteless/trashy angles and storylines the current WWE product puts out,there will never be another one of these wars to the magnitude between 1995-2001,its a must have for ALL wrestling fans...HOLLER!if ya hear me

If the Monday night battles between Raw and Nitro fascinated you then you need this DVD. They go into great detail regarding contract talks, why stars left for the competition and how WCW rose from a money losing company to a company turning a profit.The story itself is just over 90 minutes. The DVD extras are...-Steve Austin & Shawn Micheals vs Owen Hart abd British Bulldog.-Shawn Micheals & Triple H vs the Legion of Doom (I believe this was the 1st time HHH & HBK teamed up before creating D-X)-Bookert T vs Chris Benoit (Nitro)-Hulk Hogan vs Goldberg (Goldberg wins the WCW title.)-Steve Austin gives Vince Mcmahon a Stunner for the first time.-Jim Cornette commentary regarding supposed icons in wrestling.-Vince Mcmahon's "Bret screwed Bret" interview.-D-X invades Nitro.-nWo in the production truck.-Eric Bischoff challenges Vince McMahon to a match at Slamboree.-Ric Flair returns to WCW to reform the Horsemen.-Ric Rude appears on Raw and Nitro on the same night.A great investment!

For someone who didn't realy tune into Pro-wrestling until late 2000, by which point the wars were basically over, "the Monday Night Wars" does a decent job of presenting a brief synopsis of what was missed. Think of the blurbs that preceeded episodes of dramatic television shows to let you know what has happened and where you are in the story. If you don't know what the Monday Night Wars were or what happened, this DVD would be a good buy, as it gives you the gist fairly well. Once you become a bit more interested in the topic, however, you'll wish that there was a lot more to this DVD. As always, the WWE chooses to interview only the people who they have employed when they make the DVD, and even makes some strange choices among their own employees. This gives the account of what happened a very one sided feel, and creates some doubt in the viewer as to whether they are getting the whole story. It is also frustrating to spend so much time hearing from people like Gerald Briscoe who, while I'm sure he witnessed a lot and was very involved with the Wars, is not exactly the type of personality to excite wrestling fans across the globe. It becomes even more puzzling when one views the special features and realizes that the WWE had plenty of people who would have known a lot about what was going on, who they chose not to talk to. Scott Steiner, Booker T, Rey Mysterio, all of these people should have been heard from more in the main feature of the DVD rather than just the special features. The ultimate example of this is Kevin Nash. One would be hard pressed to find a single person who represented the Monday night Wars more than Kevin Nash, aside from possibly Scott Hall.Read more ›
